Three races remain in the 2012 NASCAR Nationwide Series campaign, and the race for the Nationwide Series title could be any tighter than it already is.

With just three racers mathematically eligible for the Nationwide Series Championship (Elliott Sadler, Ricky Stenhouse Jr, and Austin Dillon), mistakes by any of the three drivers could cost them a shot at the title come Homestead.

Qualifying for the O'Reilly Auto Parts Challenge will be at 4PM EST on Saturday. You can catch qualifying on The SPEED Channel. The race itself will begin at 7PM EST on ESPN. You can also check out live in-car camera views via's RaceBuddy if you are not by a TV.

Elliott Sadler continues to lead the Nationwide Series points, but Ricky Stenhouse Jr is closing in on Sadler as he is only behind 6 points. Austin Dillon is 26 points back of Sadler, but he is still mathematically in the title hunt.

Date/Time: Saturday, November 3, 7 p.m. ET
