The Kentucky Wildcats football team will begin a Rivalry Road Trip starting with Tennessee today at 4:00 pm in Knoxville, TN.  Next weekend they’ll be heading to Louisville.

The drivers in the first two rows for the NASCAR season finale are not Chase for the Sprint Cup finalists, so it wouldn’t be surprising for some of the focus to start with the third row. Kevin Harvick, starting fifth, is the highest starter among the four drivers who enter the race on equal footing in the standings. Whoever finishes best in the Ford 400 among that group will be crowned the champion Sunday night at Homestead-Miami Speedway. Harvick is the favorite, having led more than 2,000 laps this year, and he showed in qualifying Friday he had the most speed. As for the other Chase Finalists, Denny Hamlin will start eighth, Joey Logano will start ninth and Ryan Newman will start 21st. Jeff Gordon is on the pole and will be joined on the front row by Kurt Busch.  The FordEcoBoost 400 will be held on Sunday, November 16, starting at 3:00pm, at the Homestead Miami Speedway.
