The biggest winners from last week’s Sprint Cup Series race in Texas - aside from Daytona resident Mark Martin and Jimmie Johnson’s closest pursuers in the Chase For The NASCAR Sprint Cup title – are the legions of NASCAR fans that want to see the Championship come down to the wire at Homestead-Miami Speedway Nov. 22.  The BEST seats are available NOW for Ford Championship Weekend, featuring the series-crowning Championship finales of all three of NASCAR’s top circuits: the Camping World Truck Series (Friday), Nationwide Series (Nov. 21) and Sprint Cup Series (Sunday). For Friday night’s Truck Championship, all kids 12 and under will be admitted FREE; on Saturday for the Nationwide Championship, all kids 12 and under are just $15; and for Sunday’s Sprint Cup Championship, adult tickets start at just $55.

You don’t have to be an expert prognosticator to understand that Mark Martin will be a formidable foe for Johnson at Phoenix and leading into the Ford 400 NASCAR Championship at Homestead-Miami Speedway Nov. 22.  Martin benefitted from a 111-point swing with just one race to go before Nov. 22 Sprint Cup Championship at Miami.

“The race is still on for all of us,” said Martin. “It is so much fun to drive the race car.”

Four drivers—Martin, Jeff Gordon, Kurt Busch and Tony Stewart—sit within 178 points of Johnson and the Nov. 22 Sprint Cup Championship in Miami. Phenomenal seats are still available for the Championship; click here or call (866) 409-RACE.

Said Martin: “We can go head-to-head with them [Johnson and crew], and there’s no reason to think that we can’t run strong at Homestead[-Miami Speedway]….There can be swings in the points; there’s two races left.”

Just one race remains before the 2009 Chase for the Sprint Cup Championship culminates Nov. 22 at Montoya’s “home track” of Homestead-Miami Speedway. Tickets for the Sprint Cup Championship start at just $55 and are available by clicking here or by calling (866) 409-RACE.
