    Since the race isnt until tomorrow . Ill make a prediction. Brad K (no known relation to Davek) will win a championship before Kyle Bush.

    I dont think it'll be decided by Homestead because Talladega is gonna shake everything up IMO and it'll likely squeeze everything together to where Jr on back can catch up and make it very interesting

    Ya kno, Jimmie Johnson drove well, his valburner worked a lot better than last race and he made the turns he needed too. Carl Edwards is a tough one, his Engine Rotator Splint gave out last week so his team worked hard to fix it and this week ya know he raced well and finished strong, we just gotta drive faster next week.

    I'm a Greg Biffle fan, so the Chase has been pretty disheartening so far for me. Such a great regular season for him too. With all the emphasis on wins now, it will be difficult for Roush drivers to win championships.

    So how do race fans pick who they are a fan of? I have always wondered that.

    My favorite driver is Dale Earnhardt Jr. It makes me mad he's on NASCAR's best team and can win only one race during the season

    I was originally a Jerry Nadeau fan when I was little, mainly because he ran in the Cartoon Network car for Melling Racing. After he left Melling and went to Hendrick, I decided to stick with him. He got into a wreck in 2003 that almost killed him, and he can no longer race.

    A few months later I met Greg Biffle, my current favorite. He was still a rookie in the Cup series, and I went to go meet him at an autograph signing in my hometown. Only like 3 people showed up. My dad and I talked to him after the signing for a good half hour since no one else was showing up. I was still in middle school at the time, so I was blown away that a NASCAR driver would talk to me on such a personal level and was so cool. It was also that time period where it was looking like Jerry Nadeau would not come back to racing and I didn't have a favorite. I found myself cheering for Biffle the following weeks, and eventually he took over as my favorite.

    Typically you have your favorite and about 5 or 6 guys you like and then about 12-18 you dislike and 3 or 4 you hate.

    post race interviews and knucklehead moves are always a factor and usually they give background stories about various drivers throughout the race.

    Crazy finish today....i'm glad Tony admitted his guilt for starting that wreck, completely blocked Waltrip when Waltrip had a huge run going into turn 3. Glad no one got hurt in the wreck, here's video of the wreck

    YES. Love huge wrecks. Best part of the sport.

    Of course, that, and people running into jet dryers. :chuckles:

    Didn't he blow a tire right before he ran into it? I'll cut him some slack. It is hard to control a stock car when you blow a tire at around 150 entering the corner. Just terrible timing.
