Kenseth will have to run a perfect race or hope Johnson has issues to give himself a chance next week in the final race.
Kevin Harvick is a distance third, but waiting to pounce if the opportunity arises. He is not called “the closer” for no reason. Harvick won last years race at Phoenix.
I am going for a repeat of Harvick winning, but Johnson finishes in the top three. A couple dark horses could be Danica Patrick and Jeff Burton, both who have run well in the past here. I think both could post top 15 finishes.
Two races to go, seven points apart…the story is the same, the characters are slightly different, but it should produce another great finish for NASCAR.
