Open Race Thread: NASCAR Sprint Cup Series Sylvania 300 | New Hampshire Motor Speedway

Whoa, what’s this?  No rain? Can’t be a NASCAR weekend without rain, can it?  I’m beside myself, I actually had my DVR set to record the race Monday at 11:00 am.  I guess I’ll have to change that.

Sarcasm aside, I believe that the teams in Hew Hampshire this weekend are appreciating the fact there is no rain.

I don’t have much in the way of a preview for you today, I’m a little short on time but I do want to say my pick to win is Johnson followed closely by Stewart and Gordon.  I don’t expect Hamlin to have a good day even though he has an incredible 7.2 finish average at Loudon – but then again I was wrong about Newman last week, so who am I really?

My dark horse is Bowyer followed by Montoya.  I know, Montoya?  But he runs well on flat tracks and Hew Hampshire is more flat than banked, and it is either feast or famine with him and I’m thinking its going to be a feast day.
