Food City 500 Preview

Posted by Matt on March 16, 2008

We haven’t had some NASCAR talk in a few weeks so dare I say why not? 

The Food City 500 is race #5 of 36 for the 2008 SCS campaign and is race that is a favorite among many NASCAR die hards.  Bristol Motor Speedway is known for its excitement but with the way Goodyear’s tires are performing, it could be another long day for the drivers.  Yes, Tony Stewart is the outspoken one but even Junior seems to think the complaints after last week’s race have fallen on deaf ears.

The Busch brothers tend to do very well at BMS with Kyle winning the first Car of Tomorrow race ever right here at the Food City 500 last year.  Of course the Hendrick boys also run well and with qualifying rained out, Jimmie Johnson and Jeff Gordon start 1st/2nd, respectively, thanks to point totals from last year.  This also means Kurt Busch starts deep in the field and is one Tony Stewart punch-to-the-face away from being lapped early on.

The starting grid can be found here:  Food City 500 Starting Grid

Predictions:

Winner:

Kasey Kahne – #9 Budweiser Dodge – Gillett Evernham Motorsports

Remaining Top 5 (no particular order):

Kyle Busch – #18 M&M’s Toyota – Joe Gibbs Racing

Dale Earnhardt, Junior – #88 National Guard Chevrolet – Hendrick Motorsports

Jeff Gordon – #24 DuPont Chevrolet – Hendrick Motorsports 

Kevin Harvick – #29 Shell/Penzoil Chevrolet – Richard Childress Racing

    Winner:
    Dale Earnhardt Jr. – Pains me to pick him but he always has great success here.

    Remaining Top 5 (no particular order):

    Kyle Busch – Can you really go wrong with picking this young kid with a rocket in his ass and a complete inability to find his brakes.

    Kurt Busch – God I hate this guy but even with a starting position near the back, his crew chief will risk a two tire change at some point in the race and the rest of time he’ll pass people through the turns.

    Kevin Harvick – As long as RCR doesn’t build him a piece of shit engine that will blow up, he’ll work his way to the front by the end of the race.

    Clint Bowyer – Just when you think who the hell is Clint Bowyer, you realize he finished in the top 5…again.
