NASCAR championship drivers stumble in qualifying
HOMESTEAD, Fla. (AP) Kevin Harvick and Brad Keselowski crashed the championship and swept the front row in qualifying Friday for the NASCAR finale at Homestead-Miami Speedway.
Carl Edwards, Joey Logano, 2015 Sprint Cup champion Kyle Busch and six-time champ Jimmie Johnson are racing for the championship in Sunday's race. The championship four all failed to start in the top five. Busch starts ninth, Edwards 10th, Logano 13th and Johnson 14th.
Busch started third last season, won the race and the title.

Johnson would match Dale Earnhardt Sr. and Richard Petty with his seventh career Cup championship.
