I've got to go with Paul Menard, he has more experience in the nextel type cars. He has probably one of the better backed teams and he has shown he can be competitive. The only other one that I think has a shot at a win is Montoya. He has proven he can race but he is used to a lot different type of car.

I agree, I'm sorry folks, but this years rookie class won't hold a candle to last years. Half of the drivers aren't guarnteed a spot yet, some don't have competive cars, some I wonder how they got to drive the cars. I'll be surprised if one of them makes victory lane.

It's going to be tough for any of them. If any, though, It'll be Menard or Montoya. He should be a threat on the road cources.

Paul has had some good runs already, and at the plate tracks, well, anything can happen, but I think he would need that anything to happen to have any chance at a first place finish. He does well at Atlanta, too, as does Truex (Who I think WILL win this year)

Hell Homestead was what Montoya's first Nextel race? Somewhere around there, and he drove the wheels off of that. Until Newman had to jackass his way and knock him out of the race. I think that easily would have been a top 10 for him, I think he was in 8th place at the time of that crash.
