just watch the race. it is at daytona and daytona is great. anyone can be a darkhorse (hell jimmy spenser won this race before). team penske is ready to break through at a restrictor plate. if both cars are still running at the end they can sneak out a win. unfortunately they dont ride chevys. hendrick motorsports is the chevy team with the most cars. it helps explain the recent dominance. conspiracy theories aside when d.e.i. was dominant their restrictor plate program was pretty much a 4+ car team effort with dei and childress. after dales death the greatest restrictor plate racer, and the alliance of the 2 teams couldnt be as strong as a single team with 4 cars.

1) t. stewart
2) j. johnson
3) j. gordon
4) d. hamlin
5) d. earnhardt jr.

definitely watch kenseth, biffle, newman, kurt and kyle bush, vickers, martin, e. saddler and possibly d. jarrett. any of these drivers can crack the top 5, and as biffle proved with his 1st career win, anything can happen. it should be one of the best races of the year.

(also reported that it will be the biggest fireworks show in the south east. and its not even the 4th!)

Oh, I don't know, tony. (sigh) I'm thinking either Jimmie or Jeff will win this one, but I just don't know. I'm having a hard time with it.

Okay, I'm going to say...

Jimmie
Jeffykins
Terrible Tony
Dale Jr.
Kevin Harvick

Ohhhhh... Interesting! You're saying Jeff and I'm saying Jimmie. All the rest of our picks are the same. I hope you're right about Jeff because I'm taking him in fantasy...(lol). :smile:

Oh c'mon, Jeremy... Yeah, Terrible Tony is a jerk, but if you love NASCAR as much as the rest of us do, you know you just can't walk away! Your passion about it tells me you love it! :grin:

Thanks Tony.....I was going to start him at Infineon but I guess I didn't have the nuts(lol) to do it. Boris is like 45 yrs old and he wants a full time ticket for next year so hes going balls to the walls to prove something.....I can relate to that. So after I missed out last week I put him on my roster just to see if my gut was right. Dude got the poll!!! I was like Holy Shit!!! then it was like ok he got the poll I got 10 points off his butt maybe I'll check down and play it safe again....Then Steelerzgirl popped in my head(lol) shes been catching up to me and was only 30 points off my butt, so more or less I said **** it I've been leading this thing from week 1 I can burnout the rest of the way and still be cool with it so it was more of a I don't give a shit lets roll the dice and see what happens kind of a call.....I went with my gut.....I got lucky Bro.....Have a good one.....

I've been a fan since the early 90s. I know what NASCAR racing once was and it's nothing like it is now. The multi-car teams own the sport. Stewart shouldn't be driving a stock car. Hell, the guy would be in jail if it weren't for stock car racing.

The France Family can go to hell.
