Daytona 500 Preview – 2008

Posted by Matt on February 17, 2008

I don’t know if we have too many NASCAR fans around here but I absolutely love the sport more and more each season.  I have always been a huge Dale Earnhardt, Junior fan and that won’t change this season despite his move to the ‘Evil Empire’ of NASCAR.  I am also adding Dario Franchitti to my stable of drivers —  I am a big open wheel fan and the rookie makes his move to stock car racing after winning the Indy 500 last year and I am also a big fan of, and fellow UK alum with, his wife Ashley Judd.

The Daytona 500 is my second favorite race of the year with the Indianapolis 500 being my personal #1.  With the week he has had — biases aside even — I don’t think anyone is stopping Junior.  He’s one of the best restrictor plate race car drivers in the world and has pretty much dominated Speed Week.

I am taking Dale Junior to win, Jimmie Johnson to lead the most laps, and my man Dario to finish in the Top 20.

Predictions

Winner: Dale Earnhardt, Junior – #88 National Guard/Amp Chevrolet – Hendrick Motorsports

Most Laps Lead: Jimmie Johnson – #48 Lowe’s Chevrolet – Hendrick Motorsports

Dario Franchitti Watch: Top 20 finish.
