    Martin Truex Jr. felt a bit uneasy as he settled into a seat in the NASCAR hauler where officials summon drivers accused of rules infractions, bruised from fistfights or found guilty of general poor decorum. The setting was a bit unfamiliar for one of NASCAR's more popular drivers around the garage, but he was here for a chat not because he was in trouble. Truex's win Sunday at Chicagoland Speedway in the Chase opener came under scrutiny when the No. 78 Toyota failed the post-race laser inspection.

    NASCAR Xfinity Series drivers were fine playing out the stretch run of the season under the old points format that crowned the champion for consistency. Performance will be just as important under the new Chase playoff format, but drivers welcome the looming urgency of the final seven races. NASCAR will inaugurate championship Chases in the Xfinity and Camping World Truck series on Saturday at Kentucky Speedway and Loudon, New Hampshire, respectively.
