Tune in at 3:15 PM ET for coverage of the Ford 400. Scott Johnson will be liveblogging for your enjoyment.
What's going on everybody, Scott Johnson here for the Ford 400. Are we ready for some racing or what?
Race Note: Brad Keselowski will need to finish 15th or better to clinch the Championship.
Today's race is 267 laps, 400.5 miles.
I think Brad will pull this off, and it will be anti-climactic. Harvick wins the race, Keselowski wins the championship.
Engines have been fired for the last time this year at Homestead.
Some other things to remember: If two drivers tie for leading the most laps, BOTH drivers get bonus point.
If Jimmie doesn't win, he has to finish 20 spots ahead Brad, give or take 1 or 2 pts for leading laps/most laps.
So... who wins this championship? Brad or Jimmie?
We're green at Homestead!
3/267 laps - Keselowski didn't have a great start, but his car looks stronger now.

@jean9 I think he may have a better shot over at JGR tbh.
