WHO YA GOT for the overall winner, runner up, and last place?! Make some BOLD PICKS!!!

I think Joe Gibbs has a hot stable of drivers. 9 wins split between two drivers! They will be tough to beat.

I don't put much stock in the MWR guys. Two wins this year. One at a road course and the other with Vickers. As Carl Edwards can attest to, you need wins to take the Winston Cup.

Here are the 12 Chase drivers, or whatever. I don't care:

01. Kenseth 2015
02. Johnson 2012
03. Kyle Busch 2012
04. Harvick 2006
05. Edwards 2006
06. Biffle 2003
07. Logano 2003
08. Bowyer 2000
09. Earnhardt Jr. 2000
10. Kurt Busch 2000
11. Kahne 2000
12. Truex Jr. 2000


My picks:

Jimmie wins. That team is too good to have this much bad luck. 

Kyle Busch drives well but struggles in the last 4 races and his inability to keep a cool head when things are working against him will be his demise. 

Dale Jr., finishes last. He tries to switch it up from 'Cruise and Collect' and ends up in the barriers 3 times.

I can't wait to see who wins the Nextel Cup. No strong feelings either way on any of those guys. KyBu winning would be fun just to watch the collective butthurt around here, and I think he will take it.

Putting Bowyer's yesterday antics, I hope he wins the Chase, so he'd become a champion without single win.

I've had Bowyer for the Championship since the start of the season. But after yesterday, I get the feeling his title chances are going to end in a wall. 

 

Anybody but Jimmie please. Or Logano. Or Harvick. I'd even be ok with Kyle Busch winning the title, if that's what it'll take to get him out of NCWTS and NNS every damn week in 2014. Probably wouldn't change anything though. Bigger boobs for wifey maybe.  :clap: He still won't notice...

 

Kahne is too soft. Kenseth is in his head. Best he could hope for is to take Kenseth down with him.

Kurt making the Chase with the #78 is awesome. I'll be rooting for him. Don't see him taking the Cup though.

I'll also root for cuz. Not many choices for a Ford supporter this year. 

 

I think Kenseth wins the whole shebang.

Edwards runner up.

Logano last.

If the pit crew can ever get its act together consistenty Kurt Busch could be a legitmate contender. They have been running well at most tracks.

 

Just about every team here has been inconsistent or quiet at times this year, so it'll likely fall to whoever snaps out of it over the 10 races. I wouldn't be shocked if Keselowski scored the most points.

That's a no then. That FRR team doesn't do fast stops.

No way man. The First Row pit crew is the fastest wheel gun in the west. They can drop a lugnut in a quarter of a second.

I'm saying a MWR driver will contend and the other will play teammate. Or Hendrick will play the same game and Jimmie will succeed because he is well, Jimmie Johnson and the other's will play moving chicanes to make things difficult for everyone else. 

 

But! But! But (okay, I like butt), it is Matt Kenseth's year. He was quick out of the box and fell off a small bit during the season, and he has had just as much good luck going for him as Jimmie this year. And how can someone actually root for Jimmie Johnson?

I like Kenseth for this, he's been consistently good all season, and I feel 48 has just dropped momentum and it's hard to claw it back at the flick of a switch (of course watch that horseshoe slide back up his ass and he reels off 6 wins in the Chase :rolleyes:)

 

Kyle Busch could be a shot, maybe, finally it's sunk in..... but best to play safe and say no, it hasn't.  My long-shot could be Kahne, he just might be in the right place at the right time.

 

Frankly as long as it's not Harvick and after the weekend's shambles, Bowyer & Logano I'm not going to worry too much.  Just hoping for 10 good races and a final race showdown with the title very much on the line, not a "cruise & collect" job.

If it needs to be said I want Kurt Busch to win it all.  But a great battle would be great.  And like many others I'm in the anybody but Jimmie camp.

I think Jimmie pulls his junk out and goes to town. Takes 5 wins and 3 other top 5's. Wraps it up with two races to go.

Edwards runner up.

Logano last. 

 

Agreed, except that Bowyer is going to have trouble.

 

NASCAR has probably had a word with them about how their performance in the Chase is going to go.

 

Additionally, there's everyone's front bumpers but I have a feeling that NASCAR is going to take care of that themselves.

Still feel sorry for Gordon he was in chase position before the last caution, I would throw Bowyer out and bring the 24 in.

As for the cup, I would like The 48 to take it one last time.

I'm very late on that, but just finished to see that interview after the race and Ryan was  :mad:  :mad:  with his crew and he was asked a very stupid question ....hahahaha Ryan was very harsh on the guy  :lol:

 

Now I know why the guy was a friend of Tony Stewart....

Calling drivers by their car numbers irks me off.

 

I'd like Johnson to win it. Hopefully with a race to spare. Anyone but Edwards.

I'm pulling for Matt Kensis. I'd love to see Kyle and Denny's reactions to Kenseth coming in and winning after one season.

I would like him to stop at 6 is what I meant.

I like using the number plus it is a team sport and by using the number it includes them all.

It's between Jimmie and Kenseth surely. With Kyle and Edwards close by on their tails.

 

 

I'll go with Kyle just for the lolz but I'd like to see Edwards upping his game and winning it.

Gotta go with the Vulcans, although in my heart I'll be rooting for Junebug to pull it off.

He'll never get a better ride to do it with.

Reality bites, so it will be the 48 for the umpteenth time  :well:

I'm gonna take  someone  who is low key and seems to avoid trouble " GREG BIFFLE" .

 

    I know  Carl  would be the best pick overall of the Roush  cars , but somehow I think Carl may get caught up in some the crazieness that occurs at tracks like Talladega or Martinsville with his higher profile  while Greg slips by rather unnoticed  like the year he finished 2nd.

 

 

 

    What will be interesting to watch is just how subtle the teams will be  at aiding the strongest team member in the chase after 3 weeks since by then  the no hopers will be known by that point .

 

   Plus will  NASCAR  drop the hammer on teams for any questionable acts involving chase teams during the chase  or not?

 

  Will  any of the outside the chase team try to help teams within the chase as well is another topic that could play into the final results.
