Well, Carl Edwards didn't do too badly, but he didn't do to well either. 68 points from Carl
More of the same. Blah points finishes, though some laps, and a good qualifying run helped some. 74 points from Matt Kenesth, 59 points from Jamie McMurray.
Never trust gut feelings. 42 points from Paul Menard
Now to Sonoma
Starter: Jeff Gordon
Reserve: Juan Pablo Montoya
This could easily go the other way around, but one can't go wrong with Gordon, who has done very well more times than not when the Cup series heads to Sonoma. Montoya on reserve, just in case I am feeling lucky.
Starters: Ryan Newman, Clint Bowyer
Reserves: Kevin Harvick, Marcos Ambrose
I could see myself making switches at some point (mainly, Ambrose), but it should be noted that both Bowyer and Newman have put up more than respectable results here.
Starter: Mattias Ekstrom
Reserve: Scott Speed
Yes, I am going nuts on this one. All-Red Bull line up. Ekstrom has done well in road racing series across Europe, and despite this being a MAJOR wild card, I feel Ekstrom's road racing expeirence should translate well into stock cars for at least this track. Speed gets the reserve spot, not only for my almost usual reserve pick, but his F1 background as well.
