---- — NASCAR Chase points leaders Matt Kenseth and Jimmie Johnson take their intense battle for the 2013 Sprint Cup Series championship to Texas Motor Speedway for Sunday’s AAA Texas 500.

With only three races left in the 10-race Chase for the 2013 Sprint Cup title, five-time champ Johnson and 2003 champion Kenseth enter Sunday’s race on the fast 1.5 mile Texas track tied at 2,294 points each. Last weekend’s Martinsville Goody’s 500 winner, Jeff Gordon, enters Sunday’s Texas event a distant third in points hoping for another win to close ground on Kenseth and his teammate Johnson in search for his fifth NASCAR Sprint Cup title.
