Dodge announced about a month or so ago that is was leaving Nascar at the end of the season. There just weren't any viable teams available to make that continued investment in Nascar worth it in the near future. Nascar will be a three horse field for the foreseeable future.

Who do you think is going to win today race? I have to go with Smoke , he is do for some good luck. Denny Hamlin also has a very good car but is starting to far back. I think the top Ford driver today is going to be Carl Edwards but I dont think he can win it....... but you never know.

DVR'd the race to watch football. Just started watching the race (I'm at lap 31) and I hope for Smoke to win, but I have a feeling after last week Kyle Bush may just pull it off or Gordon. Anyone except 5-time!

OK guys & gals, the chase is heating up and my FAN pick for today is Smoke and I hope & pray he wins today!

My commentator pick is (I fricken hate saying it) but Mr. Five time Jimmie Johnson.

Guys to look out for...
Clint (the comedian) Boyer
4-time champion Jeff Gordon

Well my fellow FF Nascar fans we have a big wildcard race today at Talladega that could decide the chase. I'm pumped up & getting ready to start watching the race.

My #1 pick for today is Dale Jr since he's always good at Talladega and qualified decently.

#2 pick is Smoke with a great 4th place qualifying effort and has had a great car all weekend.

Just bought my tixs for the Martinsville race (#6 of the 10 chase races). Driving from Indianapolis, IN to Martinsville, VA (10 hour drive) but it will be well worth it. Love the short track racing!

Bogity, bogity, bogity; let's go Super Speedway racing!

It already started. lol

I'm going with Bayne today. I know it's a long shot but he looks really good so far in the race.

Bayne for today's win.

Keselowski for the championship

I feel like the cameras are having a hard time keeping up with these guys

That didn't take long, did it. Sucks for Edwards (and Logano).
