Wished For vs. Reality


NASCAR Predictions from the Peanut Gallery

The Season is Here! In the grand tradition of all NASCAR internet sites and blogs, I must join in and make my best educated (or not so educated) guesses. I know what I wish for, but being a bit of a realist, I will also give the probably Reality.

BUD SHOOTOUT!

What I wish? David Gilliland to win! Followed by Kevin Harvick and Tony Stewart.
Reality! All three Evernham cars are in the Shootout, they will probably draft their way to the Checkered Flag. Dale Earnhardt Jr, and Tony Stewart to give a run for the money!

DAYTONA 500 WINNER! What I wish? David Gilliland followed by Ricky Rudd! (Do you see a trend here?)
Reality! Top 5 will probably be Stewart, JR., Mears, Johnson, and Sadler.

ROOKIE OF THE YEAR
What I wish? David Reutimann! He comes from a great racing family, and is truly a very nice, fan-friendly person.
Reality! Juan Paul Montoya will probably do very well in this race.

I like your wishes. I too hope that Rudd and teammate David kick some butt this year.

I could see the Cup series finishing Stewart and Harvick, 1-2!

It's cool the Reuitmann is in the #00, his family's long time number.

Happy Bud!
