The FanIQ Nascar Sprint Cup Commissioner Challenge: Aaron's 499

After a well-deserved week off, the Nascar Sprint Cup Series gets back to racing and heads south to Talladega for the Aaron's 499.  Last year at this race, Jeff Gordon was the class of the field as he won the pole, lead the most laps and took home the checkered flag ahead of Jimmie Johnson, Kurt Busch, David Gilliand and Jamie McMurray.  Can Gordon make it back to back at Talladega?  Will Phoenix winner, Jimmie Johnson, make it two straight wins for Hendrick Motorsports?  Will this be the race that Dale Earnhardt Jr. gets over the hump and finds his way to the winners circle?  Can Roush-Fenway rebound after a subpar performance at Phoenix?  How will Toyota and the Car of Tomorrow fare on the superspeedway of Talladega?  Can RCR quietly continue there successful start to the 2008 season and place multiple drivers in the top 10?  Will the Dodge teams be able to regroup after top drivers Ryan Newman and Kasey Kahne crashed out of the Subway Fresh Fit 500?  Which drivers will get caught in the "Big One"?  Find out those answers and predict the questions below for the Aaron's 499.
