Poconooooo… here we comeee!
This weekend the boys will be hitting the Pocono track and boy am I excited. I didn’t post much this week because frankly I was tired of everyone talking about the tire issues NASCAR dealt with last weekend.
Just my .02 cents… NASCAR needs to start testing tires there for next year otherwise we’re going to run into this issue year after year. Ryan Newman seems to be the only one voicing his opinion which as you all know I love. Maybe he’s starting to speak out because he’s going to be one of Stewart’s boys next year.
Anyway… Pocono is always a blast of a race to watch. It’s a funky triangular shaped track that makes for great racing. I think there’s going to be a lot of competitive racing here especially with us getting so close to the final 12 races.
Who are my picks for this weekend? I think there’s going to be a lot of top contenders out there especially since we saw a few guys from the Hendrick team out in front last weekend. I have a feeling it’s going to be a couple guys out there dominating… Kyle Busch of course… Jeff Gordon again this weekend (He always seems to do well here)… and I think we may see Carl Edwards back up there in the front.
Carl Edwards has been impressing me with his intense driving on the course even though he has that “nice guy” attitude off the course. He’s been showing the world that not all “nice guys finish last.” One thing is for sure… he’s gonna have to show Kyle Busch this is true because if he’s wrong… Kyle Busch (cocky guy) is going to finish first.
Great racing to come… I look forward to discussing this race with you all on Monday. Make sure you guys drink a bunch of beer this weekend because POCONOOOO… HERE WE COMMEEEE!
