FORT WORTH, Texas -- All four Joe Gibbs Racing drivers are still in contention for the three spots left to race for the NASCAR Sprint Cup season championship.There are only two races left to clinch those spots, and at least one of them wont make it.Plus, JGR teammates Denny Hamlin, Matt Kenseth, Kyle Busch and Carl Edwards arent the only drivers trying to join Jimmie Johnson for a title shot in the Chase-deciding finale at Homestead in two weeks.Our goal was to have four cars at Homestead and now theres only three spots left, Kenseth said. Every week we talk about what we can do to help each other, and make things better but we also realize when they drop the green on Sunday, its one against 39 and have to get the best finish we can for our respective teams.All the Gibbs drivers have won at Texas, where the second race of the third round in the Chase for the Sprint Cup playoffs is Sunday.Led by the former NFL coach as their team owner, they have worked together during Chase races.Still, Busch expressed frustration after Martinsville last week when Hamlin defended his position ahead of Kenseth and Busch. Six-time Cup champion Johnson won the race to lock into the first of the four spots for the championship run at Homestead.Maybe I was expecting a little bit different than what transpired in the race, Busch said. But we talked, forgive and forget, and move on, and here we are.At Talladega the week before that, Busch, Edwards and Kenseth stayed out of trouble at the back of the pack together since they were already guaranteed a spot in the third round of the playoffs as long as they stayed out of trouble. They did, while Hamlin raced up front and did just enough to advance as well.Busch said the team has to focus forward and try to work together the best they can, like they have all season.We know the reason we are in this predicament is because of our teamwork and our relationships and our camaraderie that we have at the race shop each and every week that gets us to the point of being as good as we are on Sunday, he said.Kenseth described their teamwork as second to none.Johnson, who has won the last four fall races at Texas, qualified 19th at Texas. Austin Dillon is on the pole, two weeks after Hamlin had a tiebreaker against him following Talladega to get the final spot in the round of eight.Kenseth, the highest-qualifying JGR car, starts seventh and just ahead of Edwards, who qualified ninth. Hamlin starts 17th and Busch 24th after a water leak kept him from taking a lap in the second round of qualifying Friday.Ive got great teammates, Edwards said. All of us have worked really, really well all year at raising each others level of performance so well just continue to work as hard as we can like weve been doing but then we race each other really hard at the race track too. ... Once the green flag drops we all know how to race each other.The non-JGR drivers other than Johnson who are still contending for a spot to drive for the championship at Homestead:-Joey Logano (fifth, 11 points behind Johnson). The Team Penske driver has five top-10 finishes in the seven playoff races so far. He starts second at Texas, like he did in April when he finished third.-Kevin Harvick (sixth, 23 points behind Johnson). While Harvick has won twice since the playoffs began, the 2014 Cup champion also has finishes of 37th and 38th and two races where he finished 20th in that stretch. He starts third at Texas.-Kurt Busch (seventh, 25 points behind Johnson). The 2004 Cup champion, the Stewart-Haas teammate of Harvicks, was in the 12th and final spot to get into the playoffs. He finished fourth at Talladega, but was 22nd at Martinsville. He qualified 10th this week. Miami Marlins Shirts .

Down by seven with 90 seconds left in regulation, thats where they looked comfortable. High-profile mid-season signing Zak Hardaker is in strong contention to make his NRL debut in Saturdays clash against the Wests Tigers.The reigning Super League Man of Steel has had just two training sessions with his new teammates since leaving Leeds and landing on Australian shores on Wednesday.But Panthers coach Anthony Griffin believes he has seen enough for a possible NRL introduction at ANZ Stadium.Hes had two full days with us now and got his first good nights sleep last night and he was nice and fresh this morning, Griffin said on Friday.Asked if Hardaker is going to play, Griffin said: Not sure yet.Hes a chance. Weve got a couple of options there at the back end of our squad on the bench, well sort that out before the game.Hardaker, 24, is hoping to reverse a concerning trend of failed English flyers to make the transition to the NRL, the most recent of which was former Warriors pick-up Sam Tomkins.Former Parramatta buy Ben Crooks didnt get a look-in at the Eels, while Greg Eden is only just starting to find his feet in Brisbane.dddddddddddd.Hardaker, who has 68 tries in 142 senior games with both Leeds and Featherstone, comes with a reputation of being one of the most lethal attacking weapons in the Super League.However Griffin said he was keen to see how Hardaker, who only signed with the Panthers until the end of the season, fares defensively against the attacking structures in the NRL.First thing I noticed is that hes a very energetic, seems like a tough competitor, and the vision we watched of him and the reports we got on him, reflect that as well, Griffin said.Thats the main thing we need him to bring.We need him to bring a strong work ethic and a defensive attitude. If he can get that right, hes obviously got some things in attack that might be able to help us as well. ' ' '
