Blog Photo - Game On! Live Sports Thread 11/17/13Good morning and Happy Sunday. Today is essentially the last big day in motor racing for 2013. First in the NASCAR finale in Homestead. Jimmie Johnson is on the verge of a 6th Sprint Cup title, much to the chagrin of many fans. Johnson leads Matt Kenseth by 28 points, and needs to just finish 23rd to win the title. Kevin Harvick also has an outside shot of winning the championship today.

NASCAR fans and F1 fans can commerisate about dominant drivers, as Sebastian Vettel has already won his 4th straight World Driving Championship. If last year is any indication though, this will be fine race and what is already one of the best tracks in the world.
