Complete Preview for NASCAR Sprint Cup Series at Phoenix
USA TODAY Sports
Carl Edwards won at Phoenix earlier this season.

The NASCAR Sprint Cup Series has reached its penultimate race. Sunday's event takes place from Phoenix International Raceway, where the series raced in the second week of the season.

Following a dominating performance by Jimmie Johnson last weekend in Texas, he enters the second-to-last race with a seven-point advantage over Matt Kenseth.

Kenseth was able to rebound from a pit road speeding penalty halfway through the event and post a fourth-place finish. 

The first time the series stopped in Phoenix, Carl Edwards snapped a 70-race winless streak when he claimed the checkered flag. It was his second career win on the one-mile speedway. Edwards is the only driver to post multiple wins at this track over the last nine events.

While the eyes of most people will be squarely on the two championship contenders, there are plenty of other drivers to watch when it comes to Phoenix International Raceway.

Join us as we tell you which drivers have the best chance of winning and what the hottest stories are as the Sprint Cup Series gets set for the ninth race of the 2013 Chase for the Championship.
