After the season finale last November in Homestead, NASCAR fans will finally get to hear the roar of the engines this Saturday night in Daytona after the two-month offseason.

The 2012 NASCAR season will begin with an exhibition race, the Budweiser Shootout, that will feature a lot of drivers wanting to shake their disappointments from 2011 for a brighter 2012 season.

In addition to the past qualifying procedures that were put in place in 2010, the field for this year's race will be expanded, as the top 25 teams in points will receive automatic bids into the Shootout along with any other Daytona winner, either the 500 or the Coke Zero 400, will be eligible to participate in the race Saturday.

With this year's NASCAR season kicking off in style Saturday night under the lights in Daytona, the following slide show will take a look at 10 bold predictions for the 33rd running of the Budweiser Shootout.
