NASCAR At Darlington: Jimmie Johnson, Kyle Busch Lead Bojangles' Southern 500

It’s a race that’s coming down to the wire and the lead continues to rotate between the same familiar names at the top of the latest Sprint Cup race at Darlington. The Bojangles Southern 500 and its Sprint Cup Standings points are up for grabs and thus far it seems that Jimmie Johnson and Kyle Busch are the favorites to take it with just 50 laps to go. However, given the number of lead changes and the strategies involving pit stops at this point, anything can happen.

Sprint Cup points leader Greg Biffle led for some time as did Kasey Kahne. Carl Edwards has been as high as third, but he now sits off the lead in sixth place. Denny Hamlin and Tony Stewart are also in the top five currently.

Clint Bowyer is currently No. 14 overall.
