Jimmie Johnson's five-year dynasty in the Sprint Cup Series officially came to an end on Sunday at Phoenix International Raceway.  After finishing 14th in the Kobalt Tools 500, his bid for a sixth straight series championship was over.  Now mathematically eliminated, Johnson is 68 points behind heading into next Sunday's season-finale at Homestead, Florida.  Kasey Kahne won over the weekend, but it's a two-horse race heading into the Chase finale.  Just three points separate Carl Edwards and Tony Stewart.  They are the only two drivers who remain in championship contention.
