The NASCAR Chase championship keeps changing weekly and on Saturday night in North Carolina, it changed even more.

Matt Kenseth put in his attempt to win the title by defeating the field at Charlotte Motor Speedway.

The win by Kenseth, his third of 2011, was his first since the Chase for the Sprint Cup championship began five races ago.

Kenseth now has catapulted himself two spots in the standings to third behind leader Carl Edwards whom he trails by seven points at the halfway point in the Chase.

Kyle Busch had the most dominant car of the night, but Kenseth passed him up on a restart with 25 laps to go and finished second.

Five-time defending series champion Jimmie Johnson is going to be tested to win a sixth championship after last night’s race.

Johnson was running seventh in the race when he and Ryan Newman got tangled up with 17 laps to go and the #48 car hit the wall. He finished 34th and dropped to eighth in the standings.
