HOMESTEAD, Fla. (AP) -After all the talk, tweeting and obvious attempts at mind games, it's time for NASCAR's three title contenders to get serious about the tightest championship race in seven years.
In other words, they need to shut up and drive.
The Chase for the Sprint Cup championship will be settled Sunday at Homestead-Miami Speedway, where points leader Denny Hamlin has weathered a steady wave of needling from Jimmie Johnson and Kevin Harvick.
Johnson, the four-time defending series champion, poked Hamlin several times in an effort to rattle Hamlin's nerves as Hamlin tries to protect a 15-point lead - the smallest in the seven-year history of the Chase.
Harvick, sitting in third and 46 points behind Hamlin, has openly played the aggressor and talked of how he's got nothing to lose and everything to gain.
