2011 Ford 400 TV Coverage – Network: ESPN

There are only two drivers that are still in the running to win the Sprint Cup, and if either driver takes the checkered flag in this, the last race of the year, they will have won NASCAR’s biggest prize. We’ll start with the current points leader and the defending champion of this race, Carl Edwards (Odds to Win the Ford 400: 5.25 to 1 at SportBet Sportsbook). What we do like about Edwards is that he has been incredibly consistent during the Chase for the Sprint Cup. He hasn’t finished worse than 11th in a race since August 21st, and he has back to back second place finishes in races and five Top 5s in his last eight races. Edwards is as due as due could be for a checkered flag, something that he hasn’t had since way back on March 6th. With two wins under his belt in the last three years on this track, we just love Edwards’ chances on Sunday.

And then there is Tony Stewart (Current Ford 400 Odds: 4.75 to 1 at SportBet Sportsbook). “Smoke” won this race both in 1999 and 2000, but he hasn’t been victorious as the owner of his own car. Stewart already has four wins during the Chase for the Sprint Cup, and he has finished 8th or better in all but two of the nine races. That ugly 25th place finish at the AAA 400 is the only thing separating Stewart from running away from the rest of the field, and it is amazing to think that he still has a chance of claiming the Sprint Cup with a win. Don’t be surprised either if he gets the job done and claims glory for the first time since 2005 and for the third time in his career.

List Of Past Ford 400 Champions (Since 2000)
2010 Ford 400 Winner: Carl Edwards
2009 Ford 400 Winner: Denny Hamlin
2008 Ford 400 Winner: Carl Edwards
2007 Ford 400 Winner: Matt Kenseth
2006 Ford 400 Winner: Greg Biffle
2005 Ford 400 Winner: Greg Biffle
2004 Ford 400 Winner: Greg Biffle
2003 Ford 400 Winner: Bobby Labonte
2002 Ford 400 Winner: Kurt Busch
2001 Ford 400 Winner: Bill Elliott
2000 Ford 400 Winner: Tony Stewart

As great as it would be to see these two aforementioned drivers running neck and neck down the stretch on Sunday in the final laps for the race and for the entire Sprint Cup, the NASCAR odds have it that someone else is going to win this race. The man that we are going to be keeping a very close eye on is one that has had quite the frustrating season, Greg Biffle (Ford 400 Lines: 11 to 1 at SportBet Sportsbook). History is definitely on Biffle’s side having won this race three times in his career, in consecutive years no less, and it could really take away the sting from what has otherwise been a fairly disappointing season with no victories and only three Top 5 finishes.
