The FanIQ Nascar Sprint Cup Commissioner Challenge: Auto Club 500 (Edited 02/22/09 08:01PM by Scott)
The Nascar Sprint Cup Series heads west to California for the Auto Club 500.  Last year at this race, Jimmie Johnson led the field to the green flag but it was Carl Edwards who took home the win by holding off Johnson, Jeff Gordon, Kyle Busch and Matt Kenseth.  Can Edwards make it back to back spring race wins at the California Speedway?  Will his Roush Fenway teammates, including 2009 Daytona 500 winner Matt Kenseth, be able to continue there dominance at Fontana and make it 5 straight Auto Club 500 wins for Jack Roush?  How will the Hendrick bunch fare after a tough day at Daytona?  Can Junior rebound after a dismal week in Florida?  Will Fontana be the first win for Stewart-Haas Racing?  Will Kyle Busch and Denny Hamlin return to there 2008 form after being caught up in the "Big One" at Daytona?  Will Fontana be the place that the RCR cars make there way back to victory lane?  The Petty Evernham merger had a successful debut at Daytona, how will they do in California?  Can Kasey Kahne rebound after struggling at Daytona?  Which go or go home drivers fare the best?  Which rookies will have the best finish?

does he even have a drivers license yet? I mean, if he is on a Restricted license and has to carry an adult passenger with him, the added weight will slow him down, and the fighting over the CD player..yada, yada..

How about, BLOWN engine?!!! This season has got to get better!

If he can just get past Vegas and Atlanta with a top 10-15 finish, then the next 5 or 6 races will be on! Some of his "favorite" tracks.

Congrats to Gordon on a much needed stong race! He'll be in the mix this year!
