NASCAR is getting ready for its Championship weekend at Homestead-Miami Speedway, where it will crown winners for all three of its circuits. The premier Sprint Cup Series “Chase” is down to four very different drivers, including one legend making this weekend’s race his last before retirement.
FOX’s Eben Brown reports from Miami in “Fox In The Fast Lane”:

(Harvick) ”I know we all want to win, we all want to have a Championship. But in the end you don’t want to be the guy who was disrespectful at Jeff Gordon’s last press conference, or say something that is…”
(Gordon) “God I’m hoping he’s thinking like that on Sunday, too!”
Gordon will be calling it a career after 24 years. He’s not getting teary-eyed yet:
(Gordon) “If I could have scripted this thing in January or February, I don’t think I could have scripted it quite the way it’s going. I never dreamed that we could have an opportunity to be battling for the Championship in my final race.”
And neither Busch nor Truex is about to go easy on him – or Harvick… or each other.
(Truex Jr.) “You know if comes down to a little pushing and shoving at the end for the win, it just depends on what I feel the other guys are willing to put on the line.”
