I believe Carl Edwards will still have the edge over Tony Stewart as far as next week’s race is concerned.  However, we will not know who will win the Championship out of the two of them until the race at Homestead-Miami Speedway finishes this Sunday.  We know one will get the Cup at the end of the race…but who?…We’ll have to wait and see…Should be exciting!
