    Here we go!!!

    The #3 returns to the track. Can Jimmie get another championship? Lots of new rookies, can one of them win? Lots of other news along with race.

    Who you all got?

    For some reason I think Harvick, Kenseth, or Hamlin win.

    Hate to do it, but I think this is Kyle Busch's year, not only at Daytona, but he's my pick to win the Cup.

    One of the most unpredictable races of the season - not touching this one.

    2 great races so far this season with trucks and Nationwide. Not a ton of wrecks but awesome finishes. Somehow I think we'll still get the great finish today but with a lot more banging and tore up cars.

    All 3 mentioned by OP have a great chance. I'll say Stewart.

    Not to derail thread but need more. Many may know but I'd like to just say there is a league open at nascar.com if anyone is interested!

    When it comes to Daytona and Talladega, I always pick the drivers that are most conservative. That being said, I think Jimmie wins it back to back years.

    Would be thrilled with a 5 car win obviously - but Stewart winning today in his return after injury would be pretty awesome. Would love to see him have a strong finish.

    The question was who you got. I would love to see Jeff Gordon win, but my opinion is that Busch will. He has a good organization, a good car and is one of the best drivers today. Don't know why answering the question, no matter how painful the answer deserves your banhammer.

    Kyle blames anyone and everyone for his shortcomings on the track. Will wreck anyone and then still blame someone else. Feasts on the lesser competiion in trucks and Nationwide to boost is fragile ego.

    Surprise winner today, I'm going with Martin Truex Jr to win in the 78 car. I expect Dillion, Danica, a d Casey Mears to surprise along with the usual suspects to be up front.

    best rookie class in years, I bet we see multiple wins from them. Larson, Dillon, Klugerman - some very talented kids this year.

    Can somebody explain to me why NASCAR starts their season with their Super Bowl race? Wouldn't it be better at the end when the points race is a huge factor? Wouldn't that help draw in more of the fringe non racing fans? It just seems like having it this early makes it seem more like exhibition race.

    Not a NASCAR fan and always wondered that about how their scheduling works.
