The NASCAR Chase for the Sprint Cup is now down to four drivers looking to win the championship and  Kevin Harvick, Jeff Gordon, Kyle Busch and Martin Truex will do battle at Miami-Homestead Speedway to see who will win the title. The 16-driver field has been knocked down to four and Gordon will be looking to end his career on a high note, as he is heading into retirement. 

Harvick comes into the end of the Chase as the defending Sprint Cup champion and he will be looking to repeat, while Busch is in after dealing with some tough injuries back in February after getting into a crash. Busch comes in with four wins in 2015 and while he has had zero wins at Homestead, he is looking like the favorite for the title this year. Busch hasn't won a race in a while, but he has the chance to make up for that on Sunday.

Gordon comes in looking to win a fifth championship and he has one win at Homestead and will be looking to add another one. Gordon has not been able to get things going in the Chase and he has not yet won a title under the new playoff format. Gordon won in Martinsville to clinch a spot in the finals and now he could add a storybook ending to his final season with a victory.

Harvick comes in with three wins this season and he is looking to win another title after last season and would be just the fourth driver in the modern era to do it back to back. Harvick had a big performance earlier in the Chase at Dover and he may need another one to get the victory for his second title. Truex is coming in as the underdog of the group, but that could give him the chance to take some risks and he is one to watch among the final four on Sunday.

Gordon will try and complete his career with another title and it comes after he previously finished as the runner up once in 2007 and twice in third place, which happened in both 2004 and 2009. Harvick won at Homestead last year to get the title and now he will try and do it again this year. The race starts at 3 pm ET on Sunday, November 22 and the coverage will be on NBC.
