Two weeks after Texas, four drivers in each of the three series will race for the championship at Homestead-Miami Speedway.
In the Truck Series, Johnny Sauter is locked into the finale at Homestead, with five drivers duking it out for the final three spots.
None of the eight remaining drivers are locked into the XFINITY Chase yet, while at the Cup level, the only one guaranteed to be racing for a championship at Homestead is Jimmie Johnson.
That leaves seven drivers fighting for the final three Chase berths.
This weekend should bring some clarity to who’s likely to advance and who’s probably in trouble.
Weather likely won’t be a factor this weekend, with storms not expected to hit the Dallas area until Monday. Of course, a lot can change between then and now, and we’ll be keeping a close eye on both the on-track activity and the forecast all weekend.
