NASCAR Pocono Mountains 125: 10 Drivers Guaranteed To Be in the Mix

It's like Paul Revere's ride through present-day Somerville, Medford, and Arlington shouting the Regulars are coming.

Or the Earp Brothers and Clanton-McLaury gang shoot-out at the O.K. Corral.

For 10 months now, we've known that the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series was coming to Pocono Raceway and we're about to see some history made.

It's been highly anticipated, since finally the series will have run at every current NASCAR Sprint Cup track.

Pocono at 2.5 miles will be the second-largest track that the trucks race on, joining Daytona in size and standing second to Talladega.

NASCAR has made this race exciting for fans.

Since they'll do it shoot-out style, those rough and tough trucks will race it out for 50 laps, and don't hold your breath that they'll be playing nice.

Then add in the multi-truck qualifying that they'll run, and it sure sounds to me that Pocono has finally been tamed.

The best pre-race quote I saw was this line from Ron Hornaday. "I know that going down in to turn one you better have a good spot because we will probably be four or five wide."

You have some Sprint Cup ringers that some feel they just may run away with the win.

But not so fast—you've got some wily old veterans in the trucks who still have the mojo to pull the ultimate upset.

Let's not forget some young guns just eager show everyone up for the win, and don't forget that chances are good someone will try to steal the win with making a fuel-only stop or not pitting at all.

Now before I start with my driver picks, let's take a quick look at Pocono Raceway itself.
