NASCAR's Championship 4 Contenders Are Set For Battle

WATCH: Martin Truex Jr. stops by “The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon”

Penske won the IndyCar title with Josef Newgarden earlier this year.

Three drivers were ending their full-time racing careers at Homestead-Miami Speedway. Cindric, Bell, Crafton and Sauter are in the winner-take-all championship race Friday at Homestead-Miami Speedway.

From the beginning of the season, Kyle Busch (2015 champion) and Martin Truex Jr. He capped his abbreviated season with a Homestead win and the title. Brad Keselowski, the fourth driver in the field, was 21st on the chart after just five laps.

So Ryan Blaney, Chase Elliott, Kyle Larson and Austin Dillon will have to wait their turn. The reigning champion will go into the Daytona red hot and ready to prove that this season was not a fluke.

"It would be a bit of a heartbreaker if we have the kind of issue that would take us out of an event and we couldn't finish", he said Friday. I think a perfect scenario is to go out there and race them heads up and beat them fair and square. Just like all season long, there were three stages of racing, but in-race points were not awarded to the finalists.

Hamlin reached 173.980 mph on his fast lap. He won the third race of the year at Las Vegas and then seven more, including Sunday at Homestead.

"He was voted most likely to be a mannequin in a gift shop", Fallon says of Truex. "And I think you'll find that the Miller Lite Ford and Brad are going to be competitive on Sunday afternoon".

Keselowski is one of four title contenders who will vie for the Monster Cup championship Sunday at Homestead-Miami Speedway. As he drove his No. 78 Toyota across the finish line, he shook uncontrollably with excitement, repeatedly pumping his fist as he and his crew yelled over the radio.

Truex, originally from New Jersey, got his start in NASCAR in the former Busch Series with help from Dale Earnhardt Jr., who raced for the final time in the Cup Series on Sunday in Miami. To win, Truex had to finish better than the other playoff contenders, Kyle Busch, Brad Keselowski and Kevin Harvick and he did! John enjoys drivers racing side by side and battling for the same piece of real estate on the racetrack as much as he appreciates the technical aspects of the sport. The traditional race was broken up into three shorter segments to try to hold fans' attention. "2015 was obviously a crazy year for him, and I think his attitude was he was playing with house money". It was just a matter of luck and timing to be honest that it all came together. It is bigger than words. "We didn't last year and we didn't make it. So everybody is on board, no option", Pearn said. "I think that whole team has that reputation". "A lot of it was for this team", Truex said.

NASCAR is a magnet for clichés, especially in the UK where the focus is on the technological supremacy of Formula 1, and we're spoiled by a host of circuits with unrivalled heritage and history, and an abundance of developing driving talent. "It's not like we have a trick or some big secret that nobody's figured out". The tropes are endless and tired; this year's NASCAR finale is worth paying attention to. Truex is the only driver without a Cup title in the finale.

It's unbelievable to many that a team based in Denver could win the title.

Toyota had two chances last season with Busch and Carl Edwards, and Edwards was on his way to the win when a late caution cost him the victory. "We've probably been arguably the best guy, the closest guy that's kept up with (Truex) all year". "I was going to be gutted if we didn't win", Truex said. "I'm still angry right now".

Final practice is from 1 - 1:50 p.m. ET on NBCSN.
