A Sprint Cup Champion will be crowned this weekend. The Chase ends on Sunday at Homestead-Miami Raceway for the Ford 400. Carl Edwards holds a three-point lead over Tony Stewart heading into the season-finale. They are the only two drivers who remain in championship contention. The three-point lead marks the slimmest margin between the top-two drivers going into the final race in the Chase for the Sprint Cup since NASCAR began its playoff format for its premier series in 2004. If Edwards wins at Homestead, he will be guaranteed of his first Sprint Cup championship. Stewart is attempting to win his third series championship.
