NASCAR 167 43 NASCAR Sprint Cup Series team owners in the Chase 30154866 From the top From+the+top+ NASCAR

Team owner Rick Hendrick (right, with five-time NASCAR Sprint Cup champion Jimmie Johnson) is no stranger to this title game. Neither are the men he'll be battling against for this year's championship.

The 2011 Chase for the Sprint Cup features a string of veteran owners and champions. While it is the drivers who will get the majority of the attention in the coming weeks, it is the owners who have put their teams in position to be champions.

Who are the leaders of these Chase teams? Here's a look at the men who will be guiding them into the battle for it all this season.

Stewart is the youngster of the group, the least experienced in terms of being a team owner. But he is a two-time Cup champion in his own right, which gives him a boost.

Stewart is the primary owner of Stewart-Haas Racing, an organization that began full-time Cup competition in 2009. This year, both he and driver Ryan Newman represent the organization in the Chase.
