Jimmy Johnson is on his way to Miami, after qualifying for the Championship Round of the Chase, after his win Sunday afternoon at Martinville. The six time Sprint Cup Series champ was in the mix most of the day, but took control in the final 100 laps, to nab his 8th grandfather clock at Martinsville Speedway. The win was Johnson’s 79th overall, and will give him the opportunity for his first championship since 2010. The only question now, who will fill the final three spots in the final round of the NASCAR playoffs?. Here’s a look at the current Chase standings.

!. #48 Jimmie Johnson

2. #11 Denny Hamlin

3. #20 Matt Kenseth

4. #18 Kyle Busch

5. #22 Joey Logano

6. #4 Kevin Harvick

7. #41 Kurt Busch

8. # 14 Carl Edwards

The Round of 8 will continue next week, at Texas Motor Speedway. The seven other drivers left in the race for a championship will be looking to add their name to one of the three remaining spots in the Championship Round, taking place at Homestead-Miami Speedway, in just three weeks WBKR’s coverage of the Texas 500 will begin at noon next Sunday.
