If past performances are any harbinger of what lies ahead, then NASCAR points leader Carl Edwards should feel good about his chances of winning this year's Sprint Cup title for Ford-based Roush Fenway

Racing. As we've seen too many times to count, though, what lies ahead may have nothing to do with the past.

Edwards has a far better record at the tracks at Fort Worth, Phoenix and Homestead wholesale jerseys than second-ranked Tony Stewart, third-ranked Kevin Harvick

or fourth-ranked Brad Keselowski. Realistically, they're the only drivers with a shot at the Sprint Cup, which has been won for the past five years by Jimmie Johnson.

But even Johnson admits his chances are about done this year. Likewise, former champions Jeff Gordon, Matt Kenseth and Kurt Busch, as well as Ryan Newman, Denny Hamlin, Kyle Busch and Dale Earnhardt

Jr. will have to wait another year.

NASCAR's top three series at in Fort Worth this weekend for Friday, cheap mlb jerseys Saturday and Sunday races at Texas Motor Speedway. The

Camping World Truck Series has a 220-mile race on Friday night, the Nationwide Series a 300-mile race on Saturday afternoon and the Cup teams have their last 500-mile race of the year on Sunday afternoon.

Speed TV will carry the Truck Series race and ESPN will carry the Nationwide and Cup races.

Edwards, a one-race winner this year, goes into Sunday's race with an eight-point lead over Stewart. He leads Harvick by 21 points and Keselowski by 27. Edwards' record at Texas Motor Speedway is impressive:

three wins, four top-fives and five top-10s in 13 career starts. He was 19th last fall and third in the spring.

Stewart, whose three wins this year have come in the first seven Chase for the Championship races, has one win, four top-fives and top-10s in 19 starts at Texas. He was 11th and 12th in his last two starts there.

Harvick is 0-for-17 at Texas, with three top-fives and eight top-10s. Keselowski nfl jerseys cheap doesn't have any wins, top-fives or top-10s, but has run

only six Cup races at the 1.5-mile track. Harvick was sixth and 29th in his last two Texas starts, while Keselowski was 33rd and 18th.

After coming from deep in the field to win at Martinsville--a win nobody expected at the 500-lap race's midpoint--Stewart called out Edwards, who managed a ninth-place finish despite running poorly.

“He'd better not sleep too long the next three weeks,” Stewart said. “It's no disrespect to him; he's a great competitor, a great guy, with a great organization that deserves their shot at that championship, too.

“We've had one of those up-and-down years and we're having a run jerseys wholesale in this Chase now where we're hungry. We're hungry for this. (This is) our mindset

these next three weeks: we've been nice to a lot of guys this year, given them a lot of breaks. We're cashing in tickets these next three weeks.”

If Edwards was intimidated, he didn't sound like it.

“We'll have fun, we'll go and run hard,” he said of this weekend's race. yotoforum “They're gonna have to race us, too, and I'm excited about the next three races. We're

gonna have as good a shot to win as anybody.”

As for the Truck and Nationwide series this weekend in Fort Worth:

-- Only 15 points separate the top four in the Truck Series, and nobody cheap nfl jerseys else is close enough to make a

championship run. Two-race winner Austin Dillon leads winless James Buescher by 11 points, with four-race winner Ron Hornaday Jr. and one-race winner Johnny Sauter tied, 15 points behind.
-- Two-race winner Ricky Stenhouse Jr. leads the Nationwide standings by 15 points over winless Elliott Sadler in what is realistically a two-man scrap for the title. Third-place (and winless) Aric Almirola is 87

points behind and he isn't going to make that up in the next three weekends.
