JOLIET, ILLINOIS (WTVB) - The drama in the Chase for the Sprint Cup championship continued on Friday, with Jeff Gordon being added as the 13th driver in the field due to last Saturday's controversial finish at Richmond International Raceway. The Chase field has included 12 competitors in the past. Gordon fell one point shy of making the Chase behind Joey Logano after finishing eighth last week. Logano set a new track qualifying record at Chicagoland on Friday to claim the pole for this weekend's first race of the Chase. Brad Keselowski secured the outside pole with Juan Pablo Montoya, Kasey Kahne, Ricky Stenhouse Jr. and Gordon completing the top six.
