Default talladega 499! who to watch/ who will win?

this will be one of the most exciting races of the year. talladega always is. good luck watching just one car. instead enjoy watching the 3 wide 200mpg rolling parking lot. watch for the big one and i will definitely look for and enjoy that black #8 on the track. any one can win from any starting position (unless they drive a ford or dodge). while hendrick and dei usually battle for the win, this could be roush's time to break through with a m. kenseth win.

theres really no way to break this down, especially havent even seen the qualifying order yet, but qualifying dont matter, so look for the usual suspects to be up front. either stewart, biffle or johnson will lead the most laps and he who has the tightest drafting partners at the very end will win

1. dale jr
2. gordon (jeff)
3. saddler (elliot)
4. busch (kurt)
5. t. stewart
6. j. johnson

darkhorses: s. riggs, truex jr., denny hamlin, and bobby labonte in the retro #43 STP car (cool)

Jr will probably win, but my heart is with Bobby Labonte.

i would be happy with a b. labonte win. i hate the rain delays but it gives more time to watch the draft.

Guh! Talladega is my favorite track and now I won't be able to watch the race because I'll be at work.

At any rate, here's my picks... Chevy, baby!

Terrible Tony (Stewart, not hipchest)
Jeff Gordon
Junior
Harvick
Jimmie

Sure do, but it won't be the same. I'll have to know who won the race before I arrive home from work and then I won't care to watch the taped race because I'll already know who won. I'll probably listen to it on the radio if I can and/or keep in touch w/the goings on via nascar.com.

oh you silly woman.... the simple solution would be to just not inquire about the race. then you can be suprised when you watch it. plus,you can watch it in half the time without the commercials..... when i lived in hawaii,they showed the prime time games after they were already played,so i had to not watch tv until game time so i didn't know who won.
