- Green Bay Packer fan Matt Kenseth is sticking with the NFC San Francisco 49ers. "The Super Bowl could go either way but I'll stick with the NFC and go with the 49ers. I think (Colin) Kaepernick adds another element to the game and he's going to be tough to stop ... but man, the Ravens are looking good too. It could be a pretty entertaining game."
- Dale Earnhardt Jr. is disappointed his Washington Redskins are not playing for the Lombardi Trophy, however he believes either Baltimore or San Francisco could emerge victorious. "The Ravens seem to be on a course of destiny. There's a lot of veterans on that team that know what it takes, so going into that game I think they'll be the best prepared team. But, the 49ers have been able to overcome adversity early in games so I expect it to be pretty close.
- Chicago Bears fan Danica Patrick says she's stuck when it comes to pulling for the Ravens or 49ers. "Bob Parsons (Executive Chairman and Founder of Patrick's sponsor Go Daddy.com) is from Baltimore and he obviously wants the Ravens to win so I feel some alliance needing to cheer for Baltimore, but, a really want the 49ers to win so I don't know. I don't really care. If the Bears aren't in it I don't really care".
- Sprint Cup Series champ Brad Keselowski gives the nod to the Baltimore Ravens saying their retiring All-Pro Middle Linebacker Ray Lewis tips the balance toward the AFC Champs. "It's Ray Lewis ... because he brings a level of heart and passion that's unparalleled in what his sport has and I want to be that guy in our sport."
- Nationwide Series driver Travis Pastrana is native of Annapolis Maryland and will be at the game rooting for his Ravens and hopes the emotion doesn't get the best of them. "The defense is going to be on fire!" Pastrana joked ... "Ray (Lewis) has been crying when he comes out ... and I'm like, don't cry man, and don't tire yourself out before the game! I'm pumped."
* No matter which two teams were in the Super Bowl Kevin Harvick was going to the big game as a guest of his sponsor Budweiser. But, there's no secret as to which team he'll be rooting for. "I've been a lifelong 49ers fan ... I grew up as a kid in Bakersfield, California. It hasn't always been pretty over the last several years but to see them play now will make the day go a lot more exciting.
I'll have 49ers gear on for sure. I bought my friend Kasey Kahne a nice, personalized 49ers jersey that he can wear too, so I'm holding him to wearing that thing". Kahne, a Washington State native, is a Seattle Seahawks fans.
* Kurt Busch likes the fact that the Harbaugh brothers will be coaching on opposing sidelines, but he's also hoping that whoever wins it will be a lopsided game like the collegiate national championship game played out between Alabama and Notre Dame. "It was a blowout.
That means a lot of people tuned off college football and I hope they're waiting for NASCAR and they can tune in NASCAR when it fires up. So, I'm hoping for a blowout ... people don't like the Super Bowl and they can't wait for the Daytona 500. That's what I'm rooting for.
* Kyle Busch is a Denver Broncos fan and he'll be at the game Sunday. "What's weird is its two teams that, to me, they don't spark an interest. The Broncos would or the Chicago Bears would or the Patriots would for me but its two almost forgotten teams so it's kind of unique that you get those two in the Super Bowl which is cool.
Also having the brotherly rivalry (between the two head coaches) going on there I know what that's like, so that's cool. But, if I had to pick one, it's a tough one to pick, but I like the niners"
