It’s week three of the Sprint Cup Chase and drivers race this Sunday at Dover International Speedway, competing in the AAA 400. Also — new rules from NASCAR for the 2015 season, Joey Logano extends his time with Penske racing, and Tony Stewart gets good news from a grand jury.
FOX News Radio’s Marghiee Teshineh reports in this week’s FOX in the Fast Lane:

For Roush Fenway’s Greg Biffle, doing badly this weekend is not an option.
(Biffle) “At Dover it’s going to be about survival. Typically, you’re excited to go there to try and challenge for the win. But, we realize that we’re not in that position right now.”
Teammate Carl Edwards needs to finish third or better, which could happen at the Monster Mile because…
(Edwards)”They actually called me ‘Concrete Carl’ for awhile ’cause we won a bunch of races on the concrete tracks, including Dover.”
NASCAR has rolled out its 2015 rules package which includes a ban on all private pre-race testing. Penalties for breaking the ban include points deductions, six figure fines and team suspensions.
Tony Stewart will not face charges in the death of Kevin Ward Junior. A New York State grand jury ruling there was no basis to charge him with any crimes in connection with the August 9th accident.
And Joey Logano who joined Penkse Racing in 2013 will stay a little longer. The team signing him this week to a multi- year contract extension.
