coca-cola 600- who to watch/ who will win
 
jimmie johnson. need i say more? he is most likely to win this race. but that dont mean he will. practice and qualifying suggest that jeremy mayfield is the sleeper in this race. riggs is on the pole showing the muscle flex of team evernham. kahne has a top 10 starting position too. i will be watching 3 roush cars. biffle, martin and of course kenseth. newman, biffle, and earnhard have all been on hot streaks here recently but im thinking only biffle has a shot to translate that into a win. martin doesnt have the greatest starting position but in a 600 mile race, with his veteran savy, you cant count him out. bobby labonte leads my list of sleepers, with mayfield 2nd. and "c" drivers riggs, and jeff green really should be "b" drivers. both easilly have a shot at a top 10. predicting the top 5 is hard but the top 5 most likely to win are:

1. jimmie johnson
2. greg biffle (im expecting a strong run and the bad luck streak to wane)
3. matt kenseth.
4. mark martin
5. jeff gordon
6. kasey kahne

hard to go against dale jr. or even #29 being in the top 6. i hate to go against penske but it will be a succesful day if even one of them finish in the top 10. and what about tony stewart? well, he will probably win the whole damn thing. he seems to respond well to adversity and the way he flew off the handle last weekend annd wrecked in tonights busch race you can call that adversity. he very well could be a winner but if i posted the top 6 in the points standings, it wouldnt be that challenging. labonte is easilly capable of posting a top 10 finish, and i think denny hamlin can too. mayfield just seems like he will be bitten by bad luck.

I'm not saying who I picked, because every time I do, they all wreck or blow up...

i hear ya not wanting to jinx yourself. but usually most of who i think has the best shot of actually winning the race are "a" drivers anyways. if i jinx jimmie by picking him so be it. i hardly ever think a "c" driver is gonna finish in the top 4. many times who i pick in this thread doesnt correspond with what i do in fantasy (too much strategy involved).

I think JJ's luck is finally going to run out tonight...but I still picked him as my A driver.

as did everybody else. there will not be much points gained or lost in fantasy nascar this week (except maybe for those who started dj. when it becomes interresting is when we all run out of jj, dale jr. jj yeley, and k. kahne starts for the year.

id rather take a jj top 5, and see him lose anyways.

Yeley is the only guy I've started more than 3 times...I spread the starts around, especially early on.

shooting ones wad early is definitely not the way to go. especially when you can only start a driver for 1/4 of the races.

i expect matt kenseth to wreck now along with stewart. jj may not win but his luck definitely wont run out

Yeah, it's pretty cool...I just hooked up a 700W 5.1 digital surround sound system, and it is pretty awesome when you can hear the cars BEHIND you...

700w is what you call thumpin. aint nothin like watching a race when it sounds like youre in the infield (unless youre actually at the track of course.)
