NASCAR Sprint Cup Showdown is set for Homestead-Miami Speedway

Carl Edwards has already had a great weekend at Homestead-Miami Speedway. On Saturday, he topped the speed chart in the Happy Hour practice session and a couple of hours after the session he qualified his No. 99 Aflac Racing Ford on the pole for Sunday’s Ford 400. Edwards ran a lap of 30.775, 175.467 miles per hour.  This is Carl’s third pole of the 2011 season and his second at Homestead-Miami Speedway. He now joins Kurt Busch, Jimmie Johnson, and Kasey Kahne at the top of the all-time pole list at the track. Championship contender, Tony Stewart, qualified 15th. Coverage for the Ford 400 from Homestead-Miami Speedway starts on Sunday afternoon at 2pm EST with the NASCAR Countdown on ESPN. Who do you think will win the race and the championship?
