(Queen - Under Pressure)
Allen Bestwick (voiceover): It started in February with 43 hopeful nations, each with a common goal....to claim the Holy Grail of NASCAR, the Sprint Cup. One by one, the nations fell until we were left with 17. Now, 9 races spanning nearly 3,200 miles across the United States have come down to this. One race, 4 nations, ONE CHAMPION. Tonight, the Chase will come to an end and with it, a new champion will be crowned. The Championship Round of the Chase is about to take the green flag....the Ford EcoBoost 400 is NEXT on ABC!
(ESPN SpeedWorld 1998-2004 theme)
Bob Jenkins: ESPN, The Worldwide Leader in Sports and the National Association for Stock Car Auto Racing, welcome you to Miami for the final race of the 2014 season and the Championship Race of the Chase, the FORD ECOBOOST 400! And we welcome you to the Homestead-Miami Speedway for the final race of the Chase and the final race of ESPN's 34 year tenure of broadcasting NASCAR. That voice you heard in the opening is that of my friend, Allen Bestwick, who's in the Quicken Loans ESPN Pit Studio with Brad Daughtry, Nicole Briscoe, Ray Evernham and Rusty Wallace. Do not adjust your TV sets, Allen Bestwick has not shrunk or gotten older. Hello everyone, I'm Bob Jenkins and today, I have the honor of taking his place in the booth to call this race here on ABC alongside Dale Jarrett and Andy Petree.
Dale Jarrett: Great to have you back, Bob.
Andy Petree: You started our NASCAR coverage in 1981, it's only right that you finish it here today.
Bob Jenkins: Thanks, guys. Of course, I have worked with your father when we last did NASCAR here on ESPN, Dale. Now I get the opportunity to work with you and Andy and the family I last worked with 14 years ago in Dr. Jerry Punch, Mike Massaro, Bill Weber, John Kernan and everyone else here at ESPN and ABC. This, of course, is NASCAR on ESPN's final ride. To get this championship race started, let's head down trackside.
Track Announcer: Race fans, it's time for the most famous words in motorsports! Please welcome our grand marshals, ALLEN BESTWICK AND NED JARRETT!
Allen Bestwick: Race fans, welcome to the Ford EcoBoost 400, the final race in the 2014 Chase for the Sprint Cup and the final race for NASCAR on ESPN.
Ned Jarrett: On behalf of everyone at ESPN, we'd like to thank each and every one of you for over 30 years of NASCAR coverage, and to say.....
Allen Bestwick & Ned Jarrett: DRIVERS! START YOUR ENGINES!
(43 850 horsepower engines fire up)
Bob Jenkins: Our colleagues of the past and present, Allen Bestwick and Ned Jarrett, giving the command to start ESPN's final NASCAR race. Tommy Pickles is your Coors Pole Award winner, we'll be seeing him at the Sprint Unlimited at Daytona in February. No In-Race Reporter this time by as we take a look at our GEICO Race Rundown. We'll go 267 laps to cover the 400 mile distance here in Miami. Pit road speed is 50 MPH and you'll be stopping for fuel about every 52 laps. This race will start in the heat of the day and will end under the lights, winner's share of $2,000,000 awaits the winner at the end of 400 miles and a championship awaits one of 4 drivers at the end of the night. Pace car is off, Allen Bestwick has green flag in hand and ESPN's final NASCAR race, the Ford EcoBoost 400 IS GREEN! Let's go FULL THROTTLE!

(Full Throttle graphic)
(Lap 58 - Caution 1)
Bob Jenkins: Caution out for the first time this afternoon as Eddy brushes the wall in turn 3, 58 laps complete here in Miami in the Ford EcoBoost 400. Not many takers to the pit lane this time. While we're under the yellow, we'll take some time to tell you about Monday Night Football! Tomorrow night, Ben Rothlisberger and the Pittsburgh Steelers head into Music City to take on Jake Locker and the Titans. Steelers/Titans, Monday - 8:15 Eastern on ESPN, coverage begins @ 6 Eastern with Monday Night Countdown served by Applebee's.
(RESTART: Lap 64 - 6 caution laps)
Bob Jenkins: 64 laps complete this time, it will be Otto Rocket leading us to green with Danny Fenton, Randy Cunningham, Nigel Uno and Tommy Pickles in tow. Rocket started 24th, one of our biggest movers of the race, got a great restart there, Dale.
Dale Jarrett: I talked to him after the race at Phoenix last week. He told me that in the early part of the season, his restarts weren't where he wanted them to be. He took to the track with Truck Series driver Ron Hornaday to try and improve his restarts and since then, he's gotten a lot better at restarting a race.
Bob Jenkins: Battle for 9th place shaping up. That's Rudy Tabootie in the 17 going past the 20 of Timmy Turner. Tabootie now runs 9th, Turner falls back to 10th. The graphic below the ticker on the top of your screen shows the running order of the 4 championship contenders. Right now, Danny Fenton is running the best of the Championship 4, right now he's 2nd and about to make a move for the lead on Otto Rocket! He's followed closely behind by Tommy Pickles in 4th, Kim Possible runs 7th and Phineas Flynn runs 13th as we have a battle for the lead! Otto Rocket in the 3 has it, Danny Fenton in the 16 wants it!
Andy Petree: Fenton has the preferred line through 3 and 4, Fenton gives Rocket a little nudge...
Bob Jenkins: And to the lead goes Danny Fenton! He currently leads the race and the Championship 4 as we cross 100 miles in the Ford EcoBoost 400. 72 of the 267 laps complete here in Homestead. We'll be back after this and a word from our ABC stations.
(Lap 89 - Caution 2)
Bob Jenkins: 89 laps complete here in Homestead, yellow lights are on, caution out for the 2nd time....
Dale Jarrett: Looks like the 66 slammed the wall in turn 2, Bob.
Bob Jenkins: It is indeed the 66 of Eddy. Some serious damage to that 66 machine, he comes to a stop on the backstretch, done for the day. Pits are open on lap 90 and everyone's in! We start with Bill Weber.
Bill Weber: Great to hear your voice again, Bob! 4 tires and fuel for the 20 of Timmy Turner, he said on the radio that his car's a little free on entry. The crew's making a track bar adjustment to try and rectify the issue. Turner's away! John Kernan?
John Kernan: One of our Championship 4, Phineas Flynn, also a tick loose on entry, chassis adjustment complete, 4 tires and fuel for the 43 and he's away! Dave Despain?
Dave Despain: Race leader Danny Fenton completely dominated that last run, 4 tires and fuel for the 16, no adjustments this time and the PitBulls get Fenton out first!
Bob Jenkins: Some penalties on that last round of stops, pit road speed violations to Ashley Armbruster and Tommy Pickles....
Andy Petree: One of our Championship 4 there, Bob.
Bob Jenkins: Tough break for the 24 team there. Also a penalty to the 20 of Timmy Turner for removing equipment from the pit box. They'll all have to start at the tail end of the field for this upcoming restart.

2. Otto Rocket (3)
3. Nigel Uno (1)
4. Kim Possible (88)
5. Vince Lasalle (55)

(RESTART: Lap 96 - 7 caution laps)
Bob Jenkins: Ambruster, Pickles and Turner all with pit penalties on that last round of stops, they'll restart 25th, 26th and 27th as Danny Fenton will get us back under green and we go FULL THROTTLE with Disney's BIG HERO 6!
(Lap 114 - Caution 3)
Bob Jenkins: Only got through 18 laps this run before this, the 3rd caution of the race, comes out here on lap 114. This time, it's for Hank Hill, a native of Dallas, Texas, scraping the wall in turn 3. Pits are open and everyone's back in! Dave Despain?
Dave Despain: Sunset about 40 minutes away here in Homestead, Tommy Pickles wants his car to be free on exit. They'll reverse the changes they made on the last stop, 4 tires and fuel for the 24 and he's away! Rick DeBruhl?
Rick DeBruhl: No adjustments this time for Phineas Flynn, 4 tires and fuel for the 43 and he's away! Doc?
Dr. Jerry Punch: 4 tires and fuel for Timmy Turner, no adjustments this time on the 20 car and Turner's away! A strategy move by Ben Tennyson has his team out first!

(RESTART: Lap 120 - 6 caution laps)
Bob Jenkins: Ben Tennyson, Otto Rocket only took 2 tires on the last set of stops, they'll restart 1-2 as we come back to green with 120 laps on the board here in Miami!
Andy Petree: Now that's either gonna help them or hurt them going forward, all depends on how much time Tennyson and Rocket give up to the guys on 4 tires.
Bob Jenkins: Jamie Little has a medical update for us. Jamie?
Jamie Little: Hank Hill just released from the infield care center; Hank, tell us what happened.
Hank: I was coming of the backstretch when I heard a pop. I thought 'Oh great.....just blew a tire!' I tried to get it back to the pits, but the car made a hard right and smacked into the wall. Story of our year, I guess. We had a great run going for us, up inside the top 15....and it goes wrong just like that. Not the way we wanted to send ESPN and ABC out.
Jamie Little: Hank Hill done for the day here in Miami.
(Lap 158 - Caution 4)
Bob Jenkins: Trouble for Ben Tennyson! He's slammed the turn 4 wall, bringing out the caution for just the 4th time today, 109 laps to go here in Homestead. Time to go NASCAR NONSTOP presented by Goodyear.
(RESTART: Lap 165 - 7 caution laps)
Bob Jenkins: Closing in on 100 laps to go here in Miami, it's Rocket, Fenton, Moto, Possible and Pickles coming to green.....and we have caution for debris! It's right before start/finish, a piece of the catch fence has come loose right before the start/finish line, puts us under caution for the 5th time tonight with now 101 laps to go here in Miami in the Ford EcoBoost 400, the Championship Race in the Chase for the Sprint Cup for 2014.
(RESTART: Lap 170 - 5 caution laps)
Bob Jenkins: 97 laps to go this time by here in Miami; Rocket, Fenton, Moto, Possible and Pickles ready to go for the green flag....and POSSIBLE'S IN THE WALL!
Dale Jarrett: That's one of our championship contenders, Bob!
Bob Jenkins: Kim Possible was running 4th before she found herself in the turn 2 wall here at lap 170. We go NASCAR NONSTOP presented by Goodyear.
(RESTART: Lap 174 - 4 caution laps)
Bob Jenkins: 93 laps to go this time, Otto Rocket will lead them to green...and some trouble for the 3 car on the restart, Dale!
Dale Jarrett: Otto Rocket spun the tires coming to green, Fenton took advantage of his mistake and he's back to the lead.
Bob Jenkins: But for how long? Here comes Rocket back up high!
Andy Petree: Fenton just said 'NO DICE, ROOKIE'! Danny had the preferred line through 1 and 2, made it stick heading down the backstretch, Rocket just had no answer.
Bob Jenkins: Danny Fenton leads the championship as they run, he also leads the race as we come to 90 laps to go in the season. Let's go NASCAR NONSTOP presented by Goodyear!
(Lap 198 - Caution 7)
Bob Jenkins: 7th caution of the race is out with 69 laps to go as Ferb Fletcher has slammed the wall in turn 3, pits are now open for business and here comes the field! Doc, we start with you!
Dr. Jerry Punch: Bob, Otto Rocket gives up 3rd position to come down pit lane here with 68 laps to go, 4 tires and fuel for the 3 and Rocket's away! Dave Burns?
Dave Burns: No adjustments for race leader Danny Fenton, just 4 tires and fuel for the 16 and he's away! Mike Massaro?
Mike Massaro: Dave, this is our last race here at ESPN before we move to NBC next season, let's go out with a bang! 4 tires and fuel for polesitter Tommy Pickles....HE STALLS IT! PICKLES STALLS THE CAR! Now he's away! A critical mistake by the 24 team, could prove costly here in the latter stages of the race. Otto Rocket wins the race off pit road!

Bob Jenkins: Ben Tennyson stayed out on that last round of stops, he leads Fenton, Rocket, Cunningham and Pickles as we come to the restart with 42 laps to go in the season.....TROUBLE! That's the 21 of Storm Shadow!
Andy Petree: Looks like the right front tire exploded off that 21 car, Bob.
Bob Jenkins: Caution out for the 21, it's our 9th of the night, comes out with 226 of 267 laps on the board here in Miami.
(RESTART: Lap 231 - 6 caution laps)

Andy Petree: His crew's been spot on all night, no mistakes, no unnecessary penalties....they're treating this race like an elimination race in the Chase. They've come in and they've done what had to be done.
Bob Jenkins: Fenton's led 150 of the 242 laps we've run so far. As of right now, he leads the Championship by 3 points on Phineas Flynn. Remember, it's the first of the Championship 4 to cross the finish line at the end of the night is the one who wins the title.
(Lap 261 - Caution 11)
Bob Jenkins: Otto Rocket in the 3 car leads here in Homestead with 6 laps to go, under caution for debris in turn 2, it's our 11th of the night.

(RESTART: Lap 268 - 7 caution laps)
Bob Jenkins: Tristan Taylor stayed out on that last round of stops, he leads Rocket, Fenton, Cunningham and Flynn with 2 LAPS TO GO IN MIAMI!
Dale Jarrett: That was a gutsy call by crew chief Duke Devlin to keep Taylor out there on old tires! Right now, he's thinking 'please don't let there be another caution!'
Bob Jenkins: Taylor comes off of turn 4 to take the white flag! Final lap of the season, final lap of NASCAR on ESPN!

Tucker: Ladies and Gentlemen, meet your 2014 NASCAR Sprint Cup Series Champion!
Danny: We won? We got the title?
Jazz: No joke, Danny! You are the 2014 NASCAR Sprint Cup Series Champion!
Dr. Jerry Punch: Ladies and Gentlemen, here he is, your 2014 NASCAR Sprint Cup Series Champion, Danny Fenton. Congratulations, my friend, you did it! What's this moment mean for you, Danny?
Danny: I really can't describe it right now. I can't thank everyone enough for the tremendous support they put into this team all season. Jack Roush, John Henry....they put a lot of work into this 3M/Ortho team. It came down to a pit call there. I just thought 'man, we are totally screwed'. Hearing my sister's voice on the pit box calmed me down, got me back into my rhythm, made up the deficit rather quickly....guess I have her and Sam to thank for bringing us this Sprint Cup.
Dr. Jerry Punch: There's his girlfriend Sam Manson and his newborn kids, Jasmine and Daniel. Danny, Sam was more than your crew chief, more than your girlfriend, she was your good luck charm this season.
Danny: She really was, Doc. Granted, I didn't put her in the car all season like Kevin Harvick did with his son, Keelan.....but it worked! Sam's a resilient young woman, she's tough as nails, doesn't let anything stop her. I promised her that I would win the Sprint Cup and I made good on that promise. (to Jasmine and Daniel) I'm glad you kids are awake! You guys just saw your dad take home the Sprint Cup! I gotta thank Timmy Turner, Otto Rocket and Matt Quinlan for being there for me, helping me through this. Timmy and Matt were in my trailer more than any of my teammates, calling me, telling me what I needed to do today....especially Timmy, he's like a brother to me. Thank you, Timmy, Matt, Otto....thanks to Sprint and all the fans who came out today! This new format was extremely stressful....and thanks to ESPN, you've been doing NASCAR for over 30 years, you've worked hand in hand with NASCAR....hate to see such a great partnership come to an end. Bob Jenkins put it best 14 years ago....without the fans, there'd be no magic for NASCAR on ESPN and there'd be no magic for us in winning this Sprint Cup.
Dr. Jerry Punch: Now it's time for the formal celebrations, it's my honor to introduce the Chief Marketing Officer for series title sponsor Sprint, JEFF HALLOCK.
Jeff Hallock: Danny, you and Roush-Fenway Racing ran well all year long and to cap it off like this by winning the Sprint Cup, just fantastic, I'm proud of you. On behalf of everyone at Sprint, let me be the first to say congratulations on a great season and the Sprint Cup Championship.
Danny: Thank you, sir.
Dr. Jerry Punch: Now for the presentation of the Sprint Cup trophy, here's the President and CEO of NASCAR, Mike Helton.
Mike Helton: Danny, on behalf of everyone at NASCAR, the business, the fans, everyone in the sport, you raced your way into not only the record but the history. Congratulations to you, the 16 car and everyone at Roush-Fenway Racing, we're proud to have you as our 2014 NASCAR Sprint Cup Series Champion!
Bob Jenkins: Well, there you have it, Danny Fenton is your 2014 NASCAR Sprint Cup Series Champion. What a finish to this season and to our 34 years of covering NASCAR on ESPN. Our congratulations go out to all those who've made it possible - Allen Bestwick, Nicole Briscoe, Brad Daughtry, Ray Evernham, Dale Jarrett, Andy Petree, Larry Nuber, Ned Jarrett, Benny Parsons and our pit reporters - Bill Weber, Ray Dunlap, Dave Despain, John Kernan, Jamie Little, Dave Burns, Mike Massaro, Jim Noble and Dr. Jerry Punch. Our congratulations also go out to Danny Fenton, the champion for 2014. Throughout life, we as individuals and professionals invest countless time, money and effort in search of all the elusive elements that can bring our health and happiness to the next level. But every once in a while, magic happens - that special combination that just can not be explained, it just happens. On a Sunday afternoon in Rockingham in 1981, the magic began. Now in 2014 comes the day we all hoped would never come; the day where we all must go our separate ways and end, hopefully just for a while, our NASCAR Sprint Cup Series coverage. As the senior member of the team, I've accepted the honor of saying farewell. We've all become like family. Although I have since retired and my friend, Allen Bestwick and others will be still be seen on ESPN, our time together as a team is over. We thank NASCAR and the many tracks we've visited through the years, but more importantly, we thank you, the fans. Without you, there'd be no magic. We dedicated these next few moments to you and hope you take pride in what we accomplished in over 400 Sunday afternoons.
Bob Jenkins (1981 Carolina 500): Good afternoon, everyone. Welcome to Rockingham, North Carolina for the Carolina 500. I'm Bob Jenkins along with Eli Gold....
