After nine months of racing action, the 2010 NASCAR season draws to a close this weekend at Homestead-Miami Speedway.

The 1.5-mile track has had its share of dramatic moments: champions have been made here and for others, championships have been lost. But Sunday's Ford 400 race may be the most anticipated in quite some time. With Denny Hamlin, also the defending race winner; Jimmie Johnson and Kevin Harvick separated by only 46 points, there is no clear favorite to win the 2010 Sprint Cup championship. The title is on the line and it may go down to the very last lap, setting up what could be the most exciting race all year. May the best man win.

The 2010 champions have been determined in the Camping World Truck Series and Nationwide Series, but in both the owners' championships have yet to be determined.

In Nationwide, a flat tire caused Kyle Busch to finish 16th, trimming the No. 18's lead in owner points to 41 ahead of the No. 22 car driven all season by 2010 Champion Brad Keselowski. Can Keselowski close the deal and secure Roger Penske his first NASCAR owners' championship? Defending race winner is last year's champion Kyle Busch.

In the Truck Series, the owners' title seems all but certain for first-year team owner Kyle Busch. Busch's No. 18 truck holds a 120-point lead over second-place Germain Racing and 2010 Champion Todd Bodine. Despite a dominant lead, you can expect Busch to go for the win Friday and add to his impressive series-high seven victories (that's half of his truck starts in 2010). Defending race winner is Kevin Harvick.
