This Sunday is the big day as the NASCAR Sprint Cup season will kick-off in Daytona, Florida for the 50th running of the Daytona 500. The Car of Tomorrow is in full effect for this season and early indicators may lean toward Dale Jr. (88) and his new Hendrick Motorsports ride as a possible favorite.
Dale Jr. has already proven his Amp Energy / National Guard sponsored Chevrolet is up to the task winning the First Gatorade Duel Race at Daytona International Speedway this week. Dale Jr, Jeff Gordon and Jimmie Johnson (all Hendrick teammates) will start within the top eight spots on Sunday afternoon with Jimmie Johnson sitting in the familiar pole position. I would lay my money on any of these guys, but cannot count out last years winner Kevin Harvick either. Any predictions?
