NASCAR point standings: Brad Keselowski wins championship by 39 points

Brad Keselowski won NASCAR's Sprint Cup Series championship on Sunday at Homestead-Miami Speedway, giving him the title by 39 points.


Surprisingly, though, it wasn't Jimmie Johnson who finished second in the standings – it was Clint Bowyer, thanks to Johnson's stunning DNF.

Johnson was third, followed by Kasey Kahne and Greg Biffle.

Jeff Gordon's win put him 10th in the points, knocking Martin Truex Jr. off the banquet stage. Only the top 10 get to make a speech at the banquet, so Truex and Dale Earnhardt Jr. won't be doing any speaking.
