Complete Preview for NASCAR Sprint Cup Series at Homestead-Miami
USA TODAY Sports
Jeff Gordon is the defending winner at Homestead-Miami.

After 35 races, the 2013 NASCAR Sprint Cup Series has reached its final event. The stars and cars of the sport's top series roll into Homestead-Miami Speedway for Championship Week. Jimmie Johnson enters as the points leader, with a 28-point edge on Matt Kenseth. Kevin Harvick is still mathematically alive for the title, 34 markers behind Johnson.

Of the three championship contenders, Kenseth is the only one who has ever scored a victory at Homestead. He almost certainly needs a win if he has any hope of claiming this year's title.

The last time the series raced in Miami, it was Jeff Gordon earning the victory. It was his first win at Homestead and 87th victory overall. Gordon looks to become the third different driver to successfully defend his victory at this track.

Does being the defending winner make him the favorite, or is there another driver who is more likely to end up in Victory Lane?

Join me as I tell you which drivers have the best chance of winning and what the biggest stories are as the Sprint Cup Series gets set to close out the season with Championship Weekend at Homestead-Miami Speedway.
