Well practise and qualifying is over and race day is fast approaching. Anyone got any predictions?

Jeff Gordon! However that's always my answer and if I keep saying it long enough it will happen.

JJ has the momentum and clearly the edge at this track, as historically #48 and company have done very well there. Also expect Harvick, Edwards, and Stewart to finish near the front.

Good race indeed!

I thought ole #18 was going to pull it off and I was also surprised with JJ but as mentioned above, that's racing.

Congrats to the #17 team!

Sad to say this won't be Jeff's year for another Championship. Looks like Jimmy is in trouble too. I saw the golden horseshoe fly out of his rear when he hit that wall Saturday.

Jeff still has a chance to win a couple of races though, but it just won't be enough to overcome the top 2 or 3 drivers.

JJ"s crash looked way too much like Earnhardt at Daytona.

Thank goodness for all the safety innovations of the past decade.

I actually think JJ's crash was much harder. Thanks to NASCAR safety rules and equipment drivers get to race another day.
