A packed house watched last year's Sprint Cup Series finale, the Ford 400, where Tony Stewart claimed his third NASCAR Sprint Cup title by becoming the first driver since 1975 to come from behind to win the title by winning the final race. Stewart and Carl Edwards finished in a points tie, with Stewart winning the title by virtue of his number of wins in the Chase.
"It's already shaping up to be another heated battle for the Sprint Cup Series championship and you won't want to miss the finale in Miami," said Becherer.
