Things may get a little slow during Jimmie Johnson's 267-lap victory parade this Sunday, but there's plenty at stake for the drivers behind him.
1 Can Jeff Gordon (right) get to Victory Lane? The four-time Cup champion hasn't gone winless in a season since his rookie year of 1993, and Homestead is the last chance to race his way into the winner's circle in 2008.
2 Can Sam Hornish Jr. hold off Regan Smith to win Rookie of the Year honors? The former Indy 500 champ leads Smith in the rookie points 199--196 entering the season finale.
3 Will old scores be settled? In 2006 Ryan Newman wrecked Juan Pablo Montoya at Homestead after the two had tangled earlier in the race. This is the final chance this season for drivers to exact revenge for any slights.
