NASCAR Sprint Cup Series entry list for Ford EcoBoost 400

1 Comment

A total of 41 cars and drivers are listed on the entry list for Sunday’s season-ending and Sprint Cup championship-deciding Ford EcoBoost 400 at Homestead-Miami Speedway.

Six-time champion Jimmie Johnson leads the field of four finalists. Johnson, who has never advanced to the Championship Four round since the new elimination format for the Chase for the Sprint Cup was implemented in 2014, is looking to make history. If he wins the championship Sunday, Johnson will tie NASCAR Hall of Famers Richard Petty and Dale Earnhardt for most championships won by a driver (seven apiece).

Defending series champion Kyle Busch is seeking to make it two titles in a row. Joe Gibbs Racing teammate Carl Edwards tied for the 2011 championship, but lost to Tony Stewart on a tiebreaker (Stewart had five wins that season vs. just one for Edwards).

Phoenix race winner Joey Logano is making his second final round appearance in the last three years of the new format and is seeking his first Sprint Cup championship.

All 41 seats are filled on the preliminary entry list.

Here’s how that entry list stacks up:
