Jimmie Johnson is the current points leader, with Indiana drivers Jeff Gordon and Ryan Newman on the outside of making the Chase with an automatic bid at 13th and 14th in points.

Former truck champion Austin Dillon has been chosen to drive for the injured Tony Stewart, who is out indefinitely with a broken leg.
