Brad Keselowski Closing In On Sprint Cup Crown At NASCAR Finale In Homestead
Brad Keselowski will look to put the finishing touches on his first NASCAR Sprint Cup title at Homestead-Miami Speedway on Sunday in the series’ finale.
The Blue Deuce holds a 20-point lead over Jimmie Johnson, and has a chance to grow that lead in the very first lap of the Ford EcoBoost 400 thanks to a practice crash that wrecked polesitter Joey Logano.
That’s because Logano needs a new car, meaning he’ll have to start at the back of the pack, pushing Keselowski – who qualified third – into the front row with Marcos Ambrose. The leader of a race’s first lap is awarded one Sprint Cup point.
Johnson, himself a five time Sprint Cup champion, is starting in tenth position - Full lineup.
