WHO'S YOUR PICK FOR DAYTONA?
Okay, we're less than two weeks from the Great American Race, otherwise known as the Daytona 500. And with the start to Speedweeks each year, prognosticating kicks into high gear. Who's going to do what in NASCAR's Super Bowl, even though the year's biggest race starts the season, not the end.
This year, perhaps more than the last 10 years, the field of potential winners is probably larger than it ever has been. Sure, there's the old saying that anyone can win any race on any given day. But the best drivers always seem to do the best -- that's why they are the best, right?
So, who's your pick to win this year's race? Dale Earnhardt Jr.? Tony Stewart? Jeff Gordon? Will Jimmie Johnson begin his quest for a fifth consecutive Sprint Cup championship with yet another win on the high banks of the 2.5-mile Daytona International Speedway?
I'm obviously still learning some of the nuances of this new software program I'm using, so we're not able to add the old-style polls we ran quite often last year. So, until I get the hang of this deal, shoot me an e-mail with your pick and maybe a sentence or two on why you're picking him to win it all.
I'll post some of the best responses as each day clicks down. To send me your thoughts, email me at JerryBonkowski@gmail.com.
Now, let's get ready for an exciting Speedweeks, culminated by the biggest race in NASCAR!
