Bret Holmes enters Kansas with 910 points.

Michael Self enters Kansas with 902 points.

Maximum points to be earned at Kansas is 48 (no bonus point for qualifying on the pole will be awarded).

Tie breaker is: enter and compete (both will have 20), wins (Self leads 2 to 1 entering Kansas). There is no scenario where there would be a tie if Holmes wins, so any tie would go to Self (2 wins to 1).

If Holmes finishes ahead of Self, no matter the position, Holmes wins the championship.

Holmes can earn a maximum of 958 points with a win, leading a lap, and leading the most laps.

Self can earn a maximum of 950 points, leading a lap, and leading the most laps.
