The Nascar FanIQ Commissioner Challenge: Samsung 500

After a week off to celebrate Easter, the Nextel Cup returns to action with a trip down south to the Texas Motor Speedway for the Samsung 500.  This race puts a temporary halt to Nascar and the Car of Tomorrow as the boys will be back in there regular Cup cars as they take aim on bringing home the checkered flag and a win.  Will Hendrick continue its dominance by winning for a 5th straight race??  Can last years winner Kasey Kahne right the ship on a 1.5 mile track he dominated last year??  Can Roush rebound after sub par performances on the short tracks of Bristol and Martinsville??  How will Mark Martin look after taking two weeks off??  Answer these questions and the ones below for the Samsung 500.

 

 

Congratulations to the Goody's Cool Orange 500 top 3 finishers.

I know that Hendrick cars have been good at the other tracks, but look at the history at Texas.  Gordon has never run well at Texas and neither has Johnson.  For some reason they can't figure out the trace.  Not a Gordon or Johnson fan and I hope it stays that way!!!!!

Jeff Gordon -- Four consecutive top 5's from 2001 to 2004.  2002,2003, & 2004 he finished either 2nd or 3rd.

Jimmie Johnson -- 2006 (2nd, 11th)  2005 (3rd, 5th)  2004 (9)  2003 (8)  2002 (6)

In 2002, 2003 & 2004 there was only one race at Texas but Johnson has had a top 10 in 6 out of the last 7 with 11th place being his only time out of the top 10.  He finished 6th as a rookie in 2002!

 

Gordon has just missed winning this race a few times.  I would say Jimmie Johnson has been the most dominating driver at this track over the past 5 years without question.

 

Maybe you were thinking of another track.
