Default chicago 400- who to watch/ who will win

the point standings easilly reflect who has the best shot to win this race epecially when looking at qualifying and practice speeds. k. kahne is driving the car that he has won 4 times is in. him, burton, harvick, and jj all start in the top 5 and kenseth in the top 10. biffle should be good, leading in happy hour. it may take another late race pit strategy for dale jr. to win but he should be towards the front all day.

1. j. burton
2. k. harvick
3. j. johnson
4. d. earnhardt jr
5. k. kahne
6. - i cants see kenseth, stewart, or biffle not scoring at least a top 10

which leaves 1 top 10 spot for a sleeper. vickers is on a roll since announcing he was leaving. he has as good a shot to win at this track as any. scott riggs could prove strong enough to win. bobby labontes team and car have struggled, but he hasnt. put him in the right car and he can still win but i doubt he will.

good picks killer. but it looks like you have the wrong crash magnet pictured. atleast bush would never crash his old team mate on purpose for payback. as far as gordons concerned, lifting and getting them on the next lap has been a proven method in the past.

3 rookies in the top 10 is pretty impressive. bummer for jeff burton in 2nd but im sure he will take his points position any day. riggs, labonte, and vickers all had solid, top 15 runs.


on a good note i think this is the 1st time my fantasy picks have all finished in the top 10. 2,4,6,10. too little, too late.

Matt nailed it in his post-race interviews...of course it was intentional...of course it was pay-back for Bristol.

Gordon's on probation and he's not going to admit it. Don't hold your breath waiting for NASCAR to do anything about it either. Gordon is now in the top 10 in points, along with Junior, which is what NASCAR been's wanting anyway.

Just go ahead and make it official and say the new rule states that those two get in the Chase automatically each year and save us all a lot of time.

nascar said if there were any penalty to be given out it woulda been during the race, before the green/white/ checkered. gordon gets off scott free (they would never punish him while on probation anyways). jr. has earned his spot into the top 10 to this point. kurt bush will beat out gordon for the final spot. if there was a favoritism rule in place, regarding the 2 golden boys i think i prefer it than the "cat in the hat" rule that allows half the chase field to be made up of roush cars. a little diversity never hurt.

Jeff Gordon and Hendrick Motorpsorts: Cheat to Win!

The worst part of the whole damn thing was the three morons calling the race for NBC criticizing the fans who threw things at Gordon. Then you have the King fot Good Ol Boys Benny Parsons saying the reason things were being thrown is that Chicago is so close to Wisconsin. Parsons should be fired today for making such an unprofessional comment on national television.

NBC sucks!!!!

This could just be me, but i found the whole thing greatly amusing. I don't like Kennseth, and i don't like gordon that much either, so that's probably why. I was disapointed, i didn't see a fight like before. Immature i know...

There was no fight before. Kenseth came up to Gordon like a man and Gordon, wearing his helmet, shoved Kenseth like a bitch. Gordon is a bitch and he proved it again. I can't imagine how much Hendrick is paying the wives of Johnson and Gordon to cover up their affairs with Nick Lachay.
