The 2011 NASCAR Sprint Cup could very well come down to Homestead once again this year, and the three favorites that figure to be in contention in late November are Carl Edwards, Jimmie Johnson and Kyle Busch.
Edwards and Busch are no strangers to the winner's circle, and Johnson is no stranger to holding the NASCAR Sprint Cup trophy above his head in November. This season could be different for Busch if he can stay away from trouble during the summer months.
All three drivers are capable of going on a run and winning five races before the end of the 2011 season. If one of them does go on one of those magical runs, it is also conceivable it will not be enough to win the title.
Edwards and Busch are both very similar in one way: They hang it all out in an effort to be the first to the checkered flag. Checker or wrecker best describes these two. Johnson is more like a golfer that lays up to take the easy win.
