NASCAR 167 43 NASCAR drivers to watch at Homestead 31429450 Who's got this? Who%27s+got+this%3F+ NASCAR

The Chase for the Sprint Cup certainly will be the focus this weekend at Homestead-Miami Speedway, but there are several drivers who are in position to score a win at the track.


Drivers who are looking to end the season with a victory, ones who are hungering to close out the season on a high note and those who are just frustrated by a lack of performance to this point could be worth watching.

 


Still, a look at the top drivers at the track shows that, at this place, the majority of the historically strong drivers at Homestead are also ones currently making a run at the title.

Edwards and his Roush Fenway Racing team have already announced a change in crew chief for next season, but he’s more interested in his immediate future right now. Edwards is trying to avoid going winless for the year. Can he do that? At Homestead, he has eight starts with two wins. He has seven top-10 finishes, five of them top fives, for an average finish of 5.250. He has led 560 laps at the track.

NASCAR 167 43 NASCAR drivers to watch at Homestead 31429463 Denny Hamlin Denny+Hamlin NASCAR

Hamlin was expected to be in the heart of the Chase at this point. Instead, he’s fighting to hold on to a spot in the top five. Closing the year with a win certainly would be a boost for the offseason. In seven Homestead starts, Hamlin has one win. He has four top-10 finishes, three of them top fives, with an average finish of 10.857. He has led 91 laps at the track.

NASCAR 167 43 NASCAR drivers to watch at Homestead 31429461 Mark Martin Mark+Martin NASCAR

NASCAR 167 43 NASCAR drivers to watch at Homestead 31429460 Jimmie Johnson Jimmie+Johnson NASCAR

Johnson enters the race with nothing to lose and hunting for his first win at the track. A win would certainly be a step toward erasing his 20-point deficit on championship leader Brad Keselowski entering this final race. He’s started from the pole position twice in his 11 starts there. He has seven top-10 finishes, four of them top fives, with an average finish of 13.445. He has led 74 laps at the track.

NASCAR 167 43 NASCAR drivers to watch at Homestead 31429459 Clint Bowyer Clint+Bowyer NASCAR

The Michael Waltrip Racing driver was angry and hungering for a confrontation with Jeff Gordon after contact between the pair last weekend. Will tempers have cooled this weekend, leaving him free to focus on the track? In six starts at Homestead, Bowyer (center) has three top-10 finishes, one of them a top five. He has an average finish of 13.833 with one lap led.

Kahne has a chance for a stellar finish to the year – and to be as high as second in the points for the season. Can he gain enough ground to do that? In eight Homestead starts, he has four top-10 finishes, one of them a top five, for an average finish of 14.750. he has led 100 laps at Homestead – and has started from the pole position twice.
