HOMESTEAD, Fla., Nov. 21 (UPI) -- Jimmie Johnson's drive to a fourth straight Sprint Cup points title will be one of numerous story lines at Sunday's Ford 400 auto race in Homestead, Fla.

Johnson, Friday's pole winner, needs only to finish at least 25th to win an unprecedented fourth straight points title.

"I'm glad that we have this late-season push each year, especially with the (Race for the Chase, the season-ending battle for the points title) in play," Johnson said this week on his Web site.

Also, Matt Kenseth drives for DeWalt Power Tools for the last time; Jamie McMurray does the same for Roush Fenway Racing; 50-year-old Mark Martin becomes the oldest driver to finish in the Top 10; Michael Waltrip ends his last full-time season; and Rick Hendrick, for whom Johnson drives, will join Petty Enterprises with his ninth ownership championship when Johnson starts the race at the Homestead-Miami Speedway.
