NASCAR Homestead Race Winding Down; Could Result In Fuel-Mileage Race

NASCAR's Chase for the Sprint Cup finale is in its final laps at Homestead-Miami Speedway, and the champion is anyone's guess.

Tony Stewart is playing the fuel-mileage game – or at least crew chief Darian Grubb is – and there is concern that Carl Edwards may have to pit one more time.

As of this update, there are 47 laps left and Edwards is ahead of Stewart by two points in the standings. Kyle Busch is leading, Stewart is fourth and Edwards is sixth.

Fuel-mileage races have been a common occurrence in NASCAR this year, so it's not surprising it may decide the championship.

Aside from the fuel issue, the NASCAR Chase finale has exceeded the hype in many ways. Stewart has been driving with unbelievable determination and aggressiveness to overcome several setbacks, but Edwards has been consistent throughout the night.

No matter what happens in the final laps, it's likely this Chase – and this race – will go down in NASCAR history as one of the most memorable battles.

Stay tuned.
