Jeff Gordon Wins in Homestead While Keselowski Clinches the Cup

By November 18, 2012

Follow me on:

Jeff Gordon picked up the win in the final race of the 2012 NASCAR Sprint Cup season as pit strategy was the deciding factor.  Gordon took over the lead when Kyle Busch hit pit road with twelve laps to go and held on to end the season with a win.

Brad Keselowski did just enough and finished fifteenth in the 2012 Ford EcoBoost 400 at Homestead-Miami Speedway to claim his first career NASCAR Sprint Cup Series title after Jimmie Johnson saw his Championship hopes go up in smoke.

Congratulations to Brad Keselowski on his 2012 NASCAR Sprint Cup Series crown.

It is almost like the win by Jeff Gordon in the final race of the 2012 Sprint Cup season meant nothing. this is the problem with the last race of the season as nothing matters accept the Sprint Cup Championship as much of the finish should be involving the new Champion. However, the race winner should not be ignored and should have been given proper attention and not become second string. The race win has been very obviously down played by Nascar to the point of being meaningless. More was talked about Jimmie Johnson not becoming a 6th time Champion. Nobody talked out the strategy that was used by Jeff Gordon and his crew to win that race and even Kyle Busch was ignored when he was not longer relevant . Just one readers response.
