Next stop for NASCAR is Chicagoland Speedway for Sunday’s Tales of the Turtles 400, opening race of the 2017 Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series Playoffs. The ten-race title series will conclude in November at Homestead-Miami Speedway. Furniture Row Racing’s Martin Truex Junior is the top seed with four wins during the regular season, a total matched by Kyle Larson – who is seeded Number-2. Kyle Busch, Brad Keselowski and defending champion Jimmie Johnson hold spots three through five in the sixteen-man field … The next three races comprise the opening round, after which the bottom four drivers will be eliminated from title contention. Any one of the sixteen qualifiers that wins a race at Chicagoland Speedway, New Hampshire or Dover will automatically advance to the second round that opens October 8th at Charlotte Motor Speedway.
