(1-1) on the year and +$7445

My 3 picks this week are as follows:

1) Kyle Busch 8-1 $500 to win $4500

Just look at his last 4 races there, and especially the two last year with the new asphalt where he led both races and over 300 laps total. I think Gibbs has the best handle on the new car so far and Kyle seems to alway run well here...he's due



2) Greg Biffle 15-1 $500 to win $7500

He has momentum coming out of Daytona and with Kenseth gone and Carl Edwards struggling, he is the cream of the Rousch crop right now. I just have a feeling about him in my gut. Plus he runs good here as well.

3) Denny Hamlin 8-1 $270 to win $2160

Hamlin won the spring race there last year and is awesome at flat tracks. I just happen to like Kyle Busch more for some reason...

I'm not touching Jimmie Johnson even though he has like a 6.7 place average or something crazy like that at the track. Him and Chad are flying all over the country night and day doing morning shows, afternoon shows, late night shows (easy coast west coast) and will be worn out. Not saying they can't win...but not worth the 6-1 odds posted and he is my favorite driver...ESPECIALY after he won me that $8000 last week :) :)

Best of luck to everyone....

Yeah I k ow what you mean Stats. It's all a crap shoot these first couple races with the new car. Probably in a month or so (4-5 more races) we can all get a better feel for who is good or not.

I needed a Ford though and DEFINITELY love Kyle Busch for some reason....

There's a lot of previous winning history in your picks at this track. I was thinking basically along the same lines but I'm not ready to pull the trigger yet.

Thanks, I'm hoping so. It's kind of a crap shoot with the new car and no practices there yet. If I could only pick one though, it would be Kyle Busch based off him leading over 300 laps there last year even though he didn't win.

I never like the field plays. Would rather put that $25 on Kirt Busch at 100-1 or Bowyer at 18-1

With all the early engine problems at Gibbs I'm not so sure. They just changed Kyle's engine so to the back of the field he goes.

Love Kyle myself but loved him more before the engine change. Hopefully that means it'll last. Should be able to get up front before half way.
