TITLE FIGHT

Only one event remains in the Chase; here's how the two men left standing in the championship race stack up
November 21, 2011

The Chase for the Sprint Cup is down to two drivers: Carl Edwards and Tony Stewart. In their last outing on Sunday, Edwards finished second behind Kasey Kahne while Stewart came in third at Phoenix International Raceway. Edwards holds a three-point lead—the equivalent of three positions on the track—over Stewart. (Every other driver in the Chase has been eliminated from Cup contention.) Here's the tale of the tape for the heavyweights, who will fight for NASCAR's ultimate prize this Sunday at Homestead-Miami Speedway.
