Can Jimmie Johnson or Brad Keselowski sweep final Sprint Cup races?

Can championship points leader Jimmie Johnson and Brad Keselowski sweep the next two Sprint Cup races?
Keselowski, I feel like he’s got a better shot at winning at Homestead than he does of winning at Phoenix this weekend. But with this guy, you can never tell. He can do some pretty incredible things with cars, so it’s hard to say.
Still, there’s several people who can run with them and contend for the win.
We saw at Martinsville Speedway recently that Denny Hamlin was very capable. Then Kyle Busch was so close, he might have been one adjustment away from being able to challenge for the win on Sunday at Texas Motor Speedway.
I don’t think that’s going to change from here to the end of the year.
There are still people, even including a guy like Clint Bowyer, who can win these next two races. I don’t think you can discount Bowyer. Even though it’s going to be an uphill battle, I don’t think there’s any quit in that guy.
There are still a lot of spoilers, a lot of people who could take points off the board. Where it’s going to be interesting and challenging is trying to figure out who’s going to do what, where and why.
It’s one of those times where it’s hard to sit here and say, “Well, we’ve got this figured out.” Because I don’t think anybody has it figured out right now.
