"Your Bankrupt Car Company Here" 400 Preview

Okay, so that actually isn't the title of the race. But it sounds pretty good. At least, better than my top 5 from last week.

But you can't predict fuel mileage races. Or overheating. Or first lap whatevertheheckwentwrongwithdennyhamlinscar problems.

With all that said, onto the even more unpredictable Michigan International Speedway. Unpredictable because of, yes, fuel mileage. That and the fact that you never know what NASCAR may let certain drivers get away with, like passing the pace car. Oops, did that come out in print?

Yeah, it did.

I am going with Kasey Kahne for the third week in a row. But I have a very logical reason. I have some friends(yeah, I pay them well). And every time I see them before a NASCAR race, Kahne runs well. It's fool proof, which is why I use it to my advantage. For example, in 2007, a year in which Kahne struggled drastically, I saw them before the Daytona 500, the Sharpie 500, and the Bank of America 500. He finished 7th, 2nd, and 8th respectively. And in 2005, I saw them before Kahne's 2nd place finish at the Brickyard 400.

I'm going with Kahne for the win:

5.Greg Biffle
4.Matt Kenseth(even in his Carhartt car)
3.Ryan Newman
2.Carl Edwards
1.Kasey Kahne

I know I lost half my readers back at the phrase, "Like passing the pace car," so I'll put the rest of you out of your misery now, for another week. Have a Happy Sunday!
