The Nascar FanIQ Commissioner Challenge: Kobalt Tools 500

On March 18, the boys of Nascar head to Hampton, Georgia for the Kobalt Tools 500, a 325 lap race on the 1.5 mile oval of Atlanta Motor Speedway.  This race used to be named the Golden Corral 500 and its past winners include Kasey Kahne (2006), Carl Edwards (2005) and Dale Earnhardt Jr. (2004).  Will Jimmie Johnson make it two in a row for Hendricks??  Can Kasey Kahne rebound from back to back disappointments??  Can Kevin Harvick recover from his miserable performance in Las Vegas??  Will Mark Martin continue to impress in his first year in a Chevy??  Answer these questions and more for the Kobalt Tools 500.

 

Congratulations to the UAW - Daimler Chrysler top 3 finishers.

Good job Scott & welcome back.  Hope you had a great trip!

 

I don't think I'll be taking Bobby Labonte in this one.  Maybe back in 2001.

Oh I'm not saying he'll win, but you know if his car can last he'll be in the top 10 at the end of the race.

I love Bobby Labonte.  He's always been a class act.

You're right.  Bobby Labonte was Mr. Atlanta up until about 3 years ago.  He's always been a clean racer and I've always respected the guy.  It's just not the same seeing him in the 43, he WAS Joe Gibbs Racing. :/

3 guys beat him, so he starts 6th.  Still, that shouldn't come as a surprise to anybody.
