I’m Still Picking “The Biff” To Win The Championship!
We’re getting so close to the end of the season and as I said at the beginning of the Chase, my money is on Greg Biffle. Yeah yeah yeah… Jeff Gordon has a 7.0 rating at Martinsville, and blah blah blah… Jimmie Johnson has a 6.0 rating at Martinsville, well I’m not saying ”The Biff” is going to win Martinsville, but I am saying he’s going to be the champ at the end of the season.
As usual, the press constantly talks about the stars such as Jimmie Johnson, Carl Edwards, Kyle Busch or Jeff Gordon. They’re always talking about “What color underwear they wear… what they ate for breakfast… how many times they dropped the kids off at the pool… who they’re dating… blah blah blah.” And if you haven’t noticed, but before every race people are betting on these guys to win, and when they don’t, they still always seem to talk about what went wrong and why they shouldn’ve won.
Jimmie Johnson… the Media Whore!
After my last Gas Card Giveaway contest, I realized there are a number of driver’s who don’t get the credit they deserve. When I picked ”The Biff” to win the Championship at the beginning of the Chase, I picked him because I thought he was an incredible driver and he was an underdog in the eyes of the media. So far ”The Biff” has been showing strong and staying in the hunt, right where he needs to be.
Another underdog who should never be considered an underdog is Jeff Burton. The only time this guy gets any attention from the media is when he wins. We never hear about his hobbies outside of racing, or his Garage drama at the race track. I’m almost wondering if I should create rumors for these guys so they get more attention and get more fans behind them.
How about this one… “Jeff Burton lost 12 lbs for his Lowe’s win this past weekend. Rumors are going around that he is throwing up his lunches just to stay thin and give him the weight advantage when he’s goes into turn 1.” Pretty scary when the man only weighs 158 lbs… hopefully he passes his physical in the pre-race exam for Martinsville.
Ron Ripple has the pictures to Prove it!
Anyway… “The Biff” is still my pick. If I have to make up rumors for him then I will. Martinsville isn’t his track of choice, but if he stays consistant and gets a top 5 finish, then he’ll still be sitting pretty.
Obviously this is Jeff Gordon and Jimmie Johnson’s track… I think we need Jeff Gordon to get the win this weekend and make sure Jimmie Johnson stays out of the top 5. Anything’s possible.
Who do you all think the Dark Horse is in the Race for the Championship? Jeff Burton, Greg Biffle, Clint Boyer, Kevin Harvick? Hey… we haven’t heard about Kyle Busch as much as we used to!!!!
