Posted by Matt on October 7, 2007

Did Toyota finally get it right at Talladega Superspeedway?  A struggling Michael Waltrip sits atop the Pole with the Top 3 cars all being Toyotas along with seven of the Top 10.  With returning champion Brian Vickers sitting in the 3rd position it looks as if today can be the day Toyota puts it all together across the board.

Starting Grid: UAW-Ford 500 Starting Grid

Predictions:

Winner:

Brian Vickers – #83 Red Bull Toyota – Team Red Bull

  1. Won this race at Talladega in 2006.

  2. Starts from the 3rd position for today’s race.

  3. With 1 Top 5 and 4 Top 10s, Brian is stronger in the larger, faster tracks such as Talladega Superspeedway

Others To Watch For:

Tony Stewart – #20 Home Depot Chevrolet – Joe Gibbs Racing

  1. Stewart starts 11th for today’s race.

  2. Lead some last week and would’ve won had the race been called due to rain.

  3. Was knocked out of the race late last week and fell in the standings some, know “Smoke” will be upset and driving determined this week.
