It all comes down to one final race.
FOX’s Chris Hoenig reports:
The NASCAR Sprint Cup champion will be crowned on Sunday.
Jimmie Johnson, Kyle Busch, Joey Logano and Carl Edwards are the final four drivers alive in the Chase: Whoever finishes highest at Miami-Homestead on Sunday night will win the Sprint Cup.
While all four obviously want to win it themselves, Edwards’ crew chief Dave Rogers says their goal is either for his No. 19 Toyota or Joe Gibbs Racing teammate Kyle Busch to take the trophy:
(Rogers) “We’re gonna do it the same we have all year, we’re going to help each other. We’re going to try and settle it on the race track, but the main goal is that the championship comes back to JGR.”
Johnson’s crew chief, Chad Knaus, is looking to become the first crew chief to win seven Cup titles with the same driver:
(Knaus) “He sees the work, he sees what’s changed in our race cars, how we’ve developed the speed that’s given him confidence, knowing that when he shows up to the race track, that he’s going to have a fast race car.”
Busch is looking to be the first repeat champ since Johnson won his five-straight cups from 2006 to 2010.
