Top 10 Ways To Lose The Chase For The Sprint Cup Championship

Even if he were eligible for the Chase and able to earn points, Daytona 500 winner Trevor Bayne would be hard pressed to win the championship.

*10.* Win the Daytona 500.

*9.* Drive for RCR, JGR, SHR, Penske or any team not name Hendrick Motorsports.

*8.* Take up any other driver on his invitation to join him at the all you can eat buffet at Senor Jose’s Taco Hut before the race.

*7.* Call Jeff Gordon “old” to his face. He gets faster when he’s mad.

*6.* Borrow Joe Nemechek’s pit crew

*5.* Playing “head games” with Jimmie Johnson.

*4.* Be remotely associated with anyone who’s ever pissed off Kyle Busch–just ask Elliott Sadler.

*3.* Stick a “Stewart-Haas Racing” decal on your car.

*2.* Steal Dale Jr’s set-up notebook.

*1.* Drive a car that doesn’t have a No. 48 on the side of it.
