dover 400- who to watch/who will win?
 
im expecting weekly favorites jj and stewart to struggle with such a deep starting position. martin has got to be the class of the roush camp with m. kenseth as a close 2nd. j. gordon could impress with a 3rd place start. he usually does well here and the less traffic he has to deal with the better of his car is. darkhorses include some savy veterans. rickey rudd has probably never driven a car as good as tony stewarts #20. b. labonte has always ran well here. and jeff burton could suprise. jeremy mayfield has been looking real good before races lately, but has a string of bad luck to shake. talent and a good car usually puts an end to bad luck. yeley and hamlin are the rookies to watch. both are capable of a top 10 at this track. 2nd year driver kyle bush had 2 2nd place finishes here last year. i will be watching how he makes his way through the field, especially with vickers being quickest in practice and gordon posting a good qualifying speed. im sure bush will be getting the exact same set up vickers had in practice.

1) kurt bush
2) mark martin
3) jeff gordon
4) ryan newman
5) matt kenseth
6) scott riggs

I'm taking a very different approach this week...Martin, Jeff Green, Kyle Busch and Denny Hamlin.

i like that line-up. i took out harvick and hamlin before qualifying for burton and kyle bush. after the fact, im not sure if it was an assmove. do you think this is gordons week for the win? i doubt it but its possible. him, bush, or newman are due to break through. so is martin.

Hey, i picked the drivers who i thought were gonna do well, so, no on Gordon...but then again, I've been off the last few weeks.

honestly, i think gordon will be lucky to have a top 5 but it just doesnt seem right calling him a darkhorse to win. im not used to it. i just have a feeling, especially with him qualifying well (i DO hope im wrong though) :cool:

Even with a new crew chief and the defection of several crew members, he's always a threat to win at any track.

My man Jeff Burton is due, and this track is just about perfect for him to win on. He's really good on the tracks that are shorter than 1.5 miles.

and he won the busch race. childress teams seem good at translating saturday wins into sunday wins. give us your top 1-5 or 6. i always hand out rep to anyone who can accurately pick the position of a top finisher.

Damn! I like Burton, and was giving serious consideration to him and then forgot all about it...
