NASCAR's Chase for the Cup continues on Sunday with the AAA Texas 500 at Texas Motor Speedway in Fort Worth. Jimmie Johnson enters the race as the leader in the Sprint Cup Series standings, and will start first after posting the fastest qualifier.

Johnson holds a two-point lead over Brad Keselowski in the standings, with Clint Bowyer, Kasey Kahne and Denny Hamlin rounding out the top five. Boywer is the only one of the four behind Johnson in the standings to finish in the top five in qualifying. He'll start fourth. The pole winner has been victorious just once at Texas Motor Speedway. That came back in 2006, when Kahne won the Samsung/Radio Shack 500.

Tony Stewart won last year's AAA Texas 500, and Greg Biffle won at Texas Motor Speedway earlier this year, taking the checkered flag at the Samsung Mobile 500 on April 14.

Coverage of the race will begin at 1 p.m. CT and can be found on ESPN.
