NASCAR Sprint Cup: Jimmie Johnson Chasing Brad Keselowski With 4 Races To Go
When the green flag waves on Sunday at Martinsville Speedway, Brad Keselowski will look to stay on pace to become just the third NASCAR Sprint Cup Series winner in the last eight years.
Tony Stewart has a pair of titles over that time, including last year’s incredible stretch run to nip Carl Edwards, and Jimmie Johnson has won five consecutive (2006-2010).
The Blue Deuce took checkers at Dover to overtake Johnson for the lead and has run solid since – finishing 7th, 8th and 11th – keeping the five-time champ at bay, but far to close for comfort.
And, while it appears 47 points will be too much for Tony Stewart to make up with only four to go, can you write him off after last year’s finish?
Only time will tell.
Heading into to Sunday’s Tums Fast Relief 500, here are the full Chase standings:
