The dramatic NASCAR Cup Series final ends at Homestead-Miami Speedway on Sunday as Joey Logano, Kevin Harvick, Kyle Busch and Martin Truex Jr. fight for a championship.
Among the championship contenders, Logano is the only driver without title. Truex Jr. took the crown last year while Kyle Busch won in 2015 and Kevin Harvick won in 2014.
But Logano has scratched feathers this season with his aggressive racing and knocks Truex Jr. understood just before the finish line in Martinsville on October 28th to claim victory, and again he could be a factor Sunday. Soon after Martinsville, Truex Jr. proclaimed that he would not let Logano win the championship, and this week he added he had a “free kick” to demolish Logano.
