For the second straight year, it looked like it would take a victory for Christopher Bell to make the cut to the Championship 4.
This year, he made it a week early by holding off Ryan Blaney to score the NASCAR Cup Series victory on Sunday at Homestead-Miami Speedway.
While Bell joins Kyle Larson in the title round in two weeks, a race of attrition on Sunday turned the race into a roller coaster ride for several of the other championship hopefulls as they get ready for the penultimate race this weekend at Martinsville.
Our Hard Left Turn crew has a look at all the action from Sunday at Homestead, and gets you ready for what promises to be a pressure cooker race this weekend in Virginia.
