Watching testing at Daytona on Speed right now... I can't wait until the season starts. I think it will be Denny Hamlins year this time.

Of course, it seems like it's the Danica Patrick show so far... they are gonna burn her out with a lot of fans talking about her all the time. (see Cena, John; Favre, Brett; or Tebow, Tim as examples)

nah, Denny had his shot 2 years ago and blew it, he'll never run that good again..he's a mental basketcase, seriously..

I think Carl could have another good year, assuming he starts off well..if they start off in a rut it could go all downhill fast, but still...

btw, 206+ today at Daytona, loving it!

I root for Carl usually, but I think he will have an off year, then come back in 2013

They wont have these speeds in a few weeks, NASCAR will slow them down.

normally I would agree with you, but I'm not so sure this time..Nascar actually gave them a BIGGER plate this morning, like a LOT bigger, they NEVER do that..I think Nascar is to the point they know people want to see speed and they gotta do something to get the fanbase fired up again..

I'll say this, they might slow them down, but I'll bet it won't be much under 200, and not the 184 or so they were running a few years ago..

I don't know, Dale Jr. never has gotten burned out and he had about the same fanfare as Danica.

As I've mentioned before, I've always had some interest in Nascar, but never followed it like I do with the the "Big Four." Last season I tried to watch as many races as I could and am really looking forward to this coming season, more so than any other.
Is there any major changes for any of the drivers as far as pit crews that us "novices" should watch out for this season?
What are the chances of Jimmie Johnson bouncing back to reclaim the cup this season, or is he on the downward cycle now? How is his relationship with Chad Knaus?

Does Juan Pablo Montoya have a shot to make the chase?

I think this year could be Jimmie's last shot in a while to win a 6th title. The end of his run has already began, not losing the title last year, but Knaus is already starting to check out. He skipped the winter practices this week, he NEVER missed anything at the track before. Jimmie is a good driver, but Knaus was driven to be the best in the pits and his genius is what really got those 5 titles for that team. Same thing with Jeff Gordon, when Evernham finally left, Gordon's dominance started to slide..just the nature of the beast.

IMO Montoya doesn't have any chance because of his attitude, he has all the talent and has made the transformation from open wheel pretty good, he's not bad on the ovals, but damn, he's a hot head and just can't control himself..dude needs to realize just because you got rubbed a bit wrong 50 laps into a 500 mile race, that doesn't mean you have to immediately wreck yourself and the other guy in retaliation the next lap..

Is it open yet?

I've never done the fantasy Nascar thing before...at least I don't remember. I will when it does, that is if no one else wants to "Commish" it. Who did it last year?

Who's all interested in playing?

I had a decent season going until about half way, then I couldn't pick good drivers to save my life, and I tanked. It was still fun enough to try again this season if we do it (It was fun enough to make me want to take over a Fantasy hockey team as well.)

I agree 100 percent with the first part.

I mostly agree with the second part, but I think he will end up in the chase, just not really in contention for the title .
