Jarrett may have a chance, Stewart looks like the fave and all are counting Earnhart out so who knows. I will pick Jarrett.

Who do you think?

Between Stewart and Jerrett I pick Jerrett eventhough it looks like Stewart is one of the best at restrictor plate racing. Gordon and Johnson are always up there but this year I dont think it wil be one of the regulars. I guess Kyle Petty or Bobby Labonte. If not someone like that who hasnt won in a while.

I must be the only guy on the planet that just loves restrictor plate racing and bump drafting. I love seeing guys slingshot out of line and pull off a pass. Maybe thats why I like IROC too.

IROC is good group racing like that. Nascar is meant to be who has the biggest balls, motor, and guts to go to the front not who can push and slam who to the front. Bristol will always be my fav. track anyways.

Good race and nice to see the Dodge cars being competitive. But what's up with the AllState commercials? They drop a sign on a 2G Intrepid and then blow out a few windows on some Chargers!

Woohoo!! Atta boy Jimmie!!

Just my opinion, but Tony needs to sit out a race or two. Almost every incident that occurs in Nascar has Tony involved... And he's the one whining about drivers dying? Give me a break.... LOSER!!

I agree with you about Tony. But what about Knaus getting caught cheating again. Jimmie Johnson should have sat out the race. That team is getting caught way too much. Listening to Dave Despain last night and that subject came up and it was stated that all other forms of racing would have kept Johnson out of the race as well.

But then again, Home Depot and Lowe's are Nascar corporate sponsors so.....

Chad is the one sitting out for the next week..possibly more, which is typical for Nascar...and has been for many years. The last incident with Chad and the car setup was VERY questionable, and the suspension was rescinded. Over the last couple years, there have been a few crew chiefs sitting out because of the car set-ups. The drivers aren't involved in that stuff...not much anyway...

Why is it that only the crew chief is penalized when the car is found to be out of spec? I fell like the whole team should serve a one race suspension. If you think about it, teams are only caught every now and then which means that they are probably getting away with it far more often. Maybe some stiffer penalties will keep things even.

I agree. I also think they should be more clear on what the pennalties are. Johnson was the one driving the car. He should be responsible for anything that is wrong. If he really is innocent then he should get another crew cheif.
