    So who is going to be crowned the 2012 Nascar Sprint Cup Champion? Will it be Brad Keslowski going for his first ever title in a season that sees his manufacturer leaving the sport next season (Dodge), or will it be Jimmie Johnson, 5 time (in a row) champion who is a mere 20 points behind? Either way this should be a good race, has been ever since they redesigned Homestead Miami Speedway to incorporate progressive banking thereby opening up 1 sometimes 2 new grooves to race in.

    Also there is the bear in the corner, what will happen between Jeff Gordon and Clint Bowyer? Will they continue where they left off last weekend? Should be a good race, so settle back, grab some nice dessert (pie) and enjoy the season finale.

    Nice, Captain Johnny Hillstrand giving the order to start the engines.

    You think? I can see Jimmie walking away with this in the end. There is a lot of pressure on Brad, but it would make for a great story seeing how Dodge is leaving the sport.

    I think Gordon and Bowyer will be staying well clear of each other. Neither one of them are going to want to risk starting next season with a suspension.

    I think the only way Keselowski can blow it now is to wreck or blow an engine. :dontknow:

    Too bad they won't wreck each other and give Clint the championship.

    I think that Clint is mathematically eliminated.

    Brad :pray: I have never met him but I am friends with people that grew up on his street.

    They tell me that everyone used to make fun of him when he was a kid and told everyone that he wanted to be a NASCAR driver when he grew up. :hhh:

    I think all this Chase stuff is bullshit.

    My system: 1 win = 1 point.

    Nascar has done a pretty good job keeping things competitive in the chase.

    Oh I hope that they do not keep that graphic between Brad and Jimmie up the whole race.
