Midweek Linkage

The Chase is set and if you're not in it, you're not going to get talked about. Welcome to the Chase for the Cup: Year Five. Linkage below:

- Jimmie Johnson goes back-to-back, wins Richmond.

- Helio Castroneves wins Chicagoland IRL finale, Scott Dixon claims 2nd IRL title.

- Also in IRL news, Dario Franchitti runs back to the series to replace Dan Wheldon at Ganassi. Wheldon moves to Panther Racing, displacing Vitor Meira.

- Robin Miller's mailbag is always fun.

- The Nationwide Series gets its own COT. Target date is 2010.

- In what may be the most useless work by a researcher at ESPN I've seen in a while, they're doing 'ancient chaseology' - what would have happened if the Chase were around back in the 1970s.

- Jason Keller is getting the shaft once again, hey the guy only finishes in the top 15 every week in a series overrun with Cup drivers.

- Speaking of getting the shaft, Mansfield Truck winner Donny Lia gets released and promptly turns around and gets the chance to drive the #81 Randy Moss Chevy.

- Dodge is throwing in the towel in the Truck Series.

- Had to wait a week, but Joey Logano will make his Cup debut in the #02 at Loudon.
