    • I don't think you will see as much crazy stuff this weekend. The reason being is the size of the track. You can't do near as much to get the car closer to a race setup at a small track like you can at a big track. Remember the 78 and the alternator belt. They wouldn't have time to put that back on at RIR like they did at Dega.

      If I was racing and I was a go or go homer, I would totally put in a qualifying set up and qualify the car. After qualifying I would switch it over to a race set up and take the penalty of starting at the back. Your going to go to the back after the first stop anyways if you are trying to put a belt on or fill it up with oil. Might as well start at the back. It will give you more time to get to the front if your car is fast.

    • I'm with you on this Justin, I am not thrilled about any of the homers this week. Last week Joe Nemechek was a good bet as he has always been a good qualifier and loves big tracks. Sauter might be worth a shot, but think I would rather have the flexability of picking between the 15 and (somebody I haven't decided). This is a track that can go for a long green early if someone hits the setup right and can put folks a lap down in no time. For a short track there is plenty of racing room here IF you have a little patience.

    • looks good, especially the Cs but I am leaning toward the 8 and 1 for the race for B. They looked so good at PIR. Mark had the 2nd best car and Truex had a top 10 car even though he was down a cylinder that says a lot.

    • That is a helper right there thank you.

    • Correct.

      We all agree here. Go or go homers are more likely to qualify better because they will be the only ones with qualifying setup.

    • That only affects if you want to pick them to race. The impound rule does not affect how they qualify. So the fact of it being an impound race doesn't make them qualify better (which is what I thought Justin was saying). The impound rule doesn't mean a homer will win the pole, merely the fact of qualifying last and using a qualifying set-up.

    • Yeah it does because there is no practice after qualifying. They cant touch their cars till their first pit in the race. which means the go or go homers have to race their qualifying setup.

    • Historically Jimmie does well on this track and yet he isn't on the list. go figure

    • Kevin Harvick will pilot Chassis No. 242 from the Richard Childress Racing (RCR) stable. This is the same Shell-Pennzoil Chevrolet Impala SS that Harvick drove to a 12th-place finish at Martinsville Speedway in March.

      I think Kevin will be okay, but I worry about him because he struggled at PIR. Thats all. I think the 48 and 11 will be better thats all.

      one thing about him, he hasnt had a DNF in almost 60 races, the longest active driver.

    • I like those picks council. I would sort of worry about the 12. He's fast but blew an engine at PIR. Deffenitely on my lineup for the pole, but probably wont start him till they figure out why they are blowing enignes on this type of track.
