The ‘Monster Mile’ once again plays hosts to the Trackside Program from CV Products. This time around, there are three races on the docket at Dover, while our other Trackside crew will be in the northwest corner of Connecticut for a trio of championship races at Lime Rock Park.

Here’s exactly where to find the CV Trackside Program this weekend:

Drive Sober 150 

Friday’s “Drive Sober 150” presented by the Delaware Office of Highway Safety race kicks off a tripleheader weekend of action at Dover International Speedway, followed by the Saturday, Sept. 28 NASCAR Nationwide Series race and Sunday, Sept. 29 “AAA 400” NASCAR Sprint Cup Series race, the third event in the 10-race Chase for the NASCAR Sprint Cup. Points leader Dylan Kwasniewski has a mathematical shot at clinching the 2013 NASCAR K&N Pro Series East championship at Dover International Speedway. He brings a 23-point lead on Brett Moffitt into the Drive Sober 150. Kwasniewski can move into a tie with Brad Leighton for second on the NASCAR K&N Pro Series East single-season wins list with a victory, which would be his sixth of 2013.

Geico 400

11-geico400_cls_cthumbThe Chase for the NASCAR Sprint Cup is a sprint, not a test of endurance. That’s why Sunday’s GEICO 400 at Chicagoland Speedway (2 p.m. ET, ESPN, MRN Radio, SiriusXM Radio) could loom crucial among the 10 events making up this year’s Chase. Since becoming the postseason’s opening race, the GEICO 400’s two winners – Brad Keselowski and Tony Stewart – have gone on to capture the Cup championship. Kurt Busch also won the Chase opener at New Hampshire Motor Speedway en route to the 2004 title. This year’s top three seeds – Matt Kenseth, Jimmie Johnson and Kyle Busch – have a total of one win at the 1.5-mile track located in Joliet, Ill. Busch, the No. 3 seed with 2,012 points, won in 2008 but has posted an average finish of 19.0 in four subsequent starts.

Federated Auto Parts 400

fedautopartsthumbSome days it’s just nice to be Dale Earnhardt Jr., and Saturday is one of those days. In order for Dale to qualify for the Chase for the NASCAR Sprint Cup, he has to finish 32nd or better in Saturday’s 400-lap race at the Richmond International Speedway (7:30 p.m. on ET ABC, MRN Radio, Sirius XM Radio). In racing terminology, that’s a piece of cake. Racers Jimmie Johnson, Clint Bowyer, Kevin Harvick, Carl Edwards, Kyle Busch and Matt Kenseth already have Top 10 spots. Joey Logano, Greg Biffle and Kurt Busch complete the provisional top 10, scoring 16, 14 and six points ahead of 11th-place Jeff Gordon.
