NASCAR Point Standings: Carl Edwards, Tony Stewart Tops In 2011 Chase

And then there were two.

It certainly looked like Carl Edwards and Tony Stewart were going to battle it out for the 2011 NASCAR Sprint Cup Series championship after Martinsville, but Kevin Harvick and Brad Keselowski were still hanging around at the time.

Now, as you can see below, Harvick and Keselowski are all but eliminated with two races to go. Unless Edwards and Stewart somehow take each other out at Phoenix, it's going to be a two-man battle for the title at Homestead.

Kyle Busch's absence in Sunday's race dropped him to 11th place (that's down four spots), though he's only one point out of the top 10.

Here's a look at the updated Chase point standings after eight of 10 playoff races (click here if you're looking for the NASCAR Texas race results instead):

  1. Carl Edwards
  2. Tony Stewart -3
  3. Kevin Harvick -33
  4. Matt Kenseth -38
  5. Brad Keselowski -49
  6. Jimmie Johnson -55
  7. Dale Earnhardt Jr. -79
  8. Jeff Gordon -81
  9. Kurt Busch -87
  10. Denny Hamlin -99
  11. Kyle Busch -100
  12. Ryan Newman -103
