Jamie McMurray knows how to win at Daytona

Nine races remain until the 2012 NASCAR Sprint Cup Series Chase field is set. Of those races, none is considered to be quite as unpredictable as Saturday night's Coke Zero 400 at Daytona.

Since 2007, we have not had a repeat winner in the annual summer classic, and the race has never been short on excitement.

From Jamie McMurray's stunning photo finish victory over Kyle Busch in 2007 to Busch almost ending up on his lid in 2009 to a 21-car pileup in 2010 and David Ragan's breakthrough win a year ago, it's no wonder this race is considered to be the wild-card event in the Race to the Chase.

Speaking of wild card, two coveted wild-card positions in the Chase have yet to be earned. Kyle Busch and Kasey Kahne currently hold down the two slots, but an angry mob of drivers looms close behind, waiting to turn the wild-card race upside-down Saturday night.

It is those drivers we will highlight here as we take a look at nine guys who can shake up the wild-card race at Daytona.
