Doesn't Stan qualify for winning the slam?
very probably but not officially yet : there's still a very slim possibility if Wawrinka is out of the top-8 and another guy wins the US Open, who's not in the top-7 of the Race but ahead of Wawrinka

I always thought there is the rule that if you win a slam you are automatically in. Happened with Marin last year :)

The top seven players in the Emirates ATP Race To London on Monday, 9 November (the day after the final tournament of the regular season, the BNP Paribas Masters) qualify for the Barclays ATP World Tour Finals. If there is one current-year Grand Slam champion positioned between eighth and 20th in the Race, he qualifies in eighth place. If there are two current-year Grand Slam champions positioned between eighth and 20th, the highest-ranked of those players becomes the eighth and final qualifier; the lower-ranked Grand Slam champion will serve as the alternate. If there are no current-year Grand Slam champions positioned between eighth and 20th, then the player in eighth place in the Race will claim the eighth and final berth.
Regardless it's going to take quite a lot to knock Wawrinka out of this tournament and I cant see it happening.

Gasquet & Tsonga are the 2 alternates, Gasquet at #1 and Jo at #2. Both have said they will go to London. :)
