HAMPTON, Ga. -- Six drivers -- Davey Allison, Alan Kulwicki, Bill Elliott, Harry Gant, Kyle Petty and Mark Martin -- have a chance to win the Winston Cup championship today. That's three more than ever going into the last race of the season.Having so many to chose from makes it harder to figure out who will win the race and who will win the championship. It's a very iffy thing."I never gamble," said Kulwicki, who is 30 points behind points leader Allison and 10 points ahead of third-place Elliott.
