6: Of the last eight NASCAR Sprint Cup Series races at Homestead-Miami Speedway, the number won by Ford drivers. That should be particularly pleasing to the Detroit automaker, which sponsors the entire championship weekend at Homestead. Roush Fenway Racing accounts for all six Ford wins, including three straight from Greg Biffle (2004-2006), one from Matt Kenseth (2007) and two from Carl Edwards (2008 and 2010). The exceptions came in 2009, when Denny Hamlin won in a Toyota, and 2011, when Tony Stewart, in a Chevrolet, secured his third Cup title by beating race and championship runner-up Edwards to the finish line in a thrilling winner-take-all finale.
