Carl Edwards, 37, and Jimmie Johnson, 41, have both qualified for the Championship 4, with Carl securing his spot with a win at the AAA Texas 500 on Nov. 06. A win during the “Round Of 8” automatically puts a driver in the final. Jimmie scored his place by winning at Martinsville on Oct. 30. However, for Joey Logano, 26, and defending champ Kyle Busch, 31, there are other ways that they can qualify.
Joey would clinch his spot if he came in second place after leading at least one lap. Kylie would clinch a spot with a second-place finish and with leading the most laps in the race. Otherwise, they could advance by points. Denny Hamlin, 35, along with three past NASCAR champions — Matt Kenseth, 44, Kevin Harvick, 40, and Kurt Busch, 38, — are also still in the running. They would have to either win the race or score the most posts possible to advance.
Kevin has won five of the last six races at Phoenix, and that’s good news because he’s fallen to sixth in the points. “There are all kinds of things to navigate through once you get there,” Harvick said in a press release, per Nascar.com
“There are a lot of good race car drivers and lots of circumstances that could play out to have things go wrong.” Hopefully for Kevin and his fans, he remembers his past success at Phoenix and he joins Carl, Jimmie and a fourth driver to race for the Sprint Cup at the Ford Ecoboost 400 on Nov. 20.
