Preview

Kevin Harvick, Kyle Busch, Martin Truex Jr., and Brad Keselowski are the four remaining drivers with a chance at the championship. Truex Jr. is the only one of that quartet yet to win a championship, but it’s hard not to consider him the favorite to prevail on Sunday afternoon. Not only is he starting the furthest forward among the championship drivers, but in 12 races on intermediate tracks this year (Homestead is an intermediate track), he has tallied an astounding six victories, 11 Top-10’s and an average finish of 3.92. In his last four on these types of tracks, he has finished first, first, first and second.

Still, while Truex Jr. is the favorite, the other three are in this position for a reason and can’t be overlooked. Harvick has finished third, second and first in his last three races at Homestead and has an average finish of 6.94 in 16 career starts there. Busch won here in 2015 and is the closest to Truex Jr. in terms of success on 1.5-mile tracks, with four wins in his last 31 races. And Keselowski has three Top-6 finishes in his last four starts at Homestead.

Outside of the championship, the other big storyline is this being the last race for Dale Earnhardt Jr.

“I don’t need to reconsider. This is great timing for me,” Earnhardt said. “In my heart, (my career) has run its course. I’ve felt very good about that decision before the race in Daytona started in February, that this was it. And I was more thankful to be able to compete this year than I was to ever question whether I should go further. I’m sitting here healthy, and I’m going to run this last race, and I got all the way through the year, so I feel blessed. I feel really good with it.”
