Jimmie Johnson is the current leader in the Chase for the Sprint Cup. With just two races left, Johnson is hoping he can sustain the small lead he has. Following closely behind Johnson is Brad Keselowski.
The AAA Texas 500 NASCAR Sprint Cup race is November 4 at Texas Motor Speedway, and is the first of the final two races before a champion is crowned. Keselowski is only two points behind Johnson and even third place Clint Bowyer is still in the running, trailing Johnson by 26 points considering Texas Motor Speedway doesn't usually see the same amount of accidents like Daytona or Talladega.
"All I can do is worry about running well and putting ourselves in position to win races every week," Bowyer told SB Nation. "Bad luck is not something I can really wish upon the other guys in front of us or even worry about. Yes, we are going to need some help from the other guys to stay in this deal.
Bowyer added that even after his team won Charlotte, they're more than 20 points out and going to need a solid performance and some help to catch the leaders.
