Not much to discuss these days other than beating up on those kids from Las Vegas, and I am admitting to tiring of that.
2012 Forecasts anyone? Who will shine? who will disappoint? any huge shake ups?
I think EGR is prime ground for a huge shake up in 2012. Drivers are still under contract I believe, but I just don't see Chip accepting both of his teams being outpointed by teams like the #78, and others. Jamie Mac was totally unimpressive in 2011 after a pretty decent, albeit, rollercoaster, 2010. JPM is simply a disappointment, coming to NASCAR with his pedigree. If he isnt playing bumper cars on the track, he's figuring out a way to self destruct speeding on pit row and swearing he didnt.
Kahne will win more times in 2012 than the other three HMS drivers. There, I said it out loud. Junior will get one, Jeff will get 1 or 2, Johnson will get 2. Look for the #5 to capture one plate race, one of the boredom events like Fontana, Pocono, or Michigan, and then either Charlotte or Darlington.
Newman will not get a pole or a win in 2012
Dinger will be a threat to make the chase, with the same consistent finishes that got Junior in this year.
Truex will be again, a non factor, as will Logano.
Danica will be involved in "the big one" at Daytona, but will be the first interviewed at the infield care center exit.
Keselowski will stumble early, but find himself again and make the Chase.
The Biff will be erratic, as will Hamlin
Burton will spiral downward, making room for Austin Dillon in '13
Cousin Carl will will the title. that leaves a bad taste in my mouth, but I see it happening.
