The names Tim, I'm a huge Jeff Gordon fan and I love to talk NASCAR or other sports with you. I frequently yap my mouth on a Jeff Gordon forum so I thought that I'd come here and try my hand at writing a little bit about NASCAR and other sports.
I hope what I say gives you a good read. And if not, let me know what I can do to make it better. Hope to see you around!
Hey Tim. Hope this finds you well. Am a big 24 fan myself - so was excited to see you were too. So, you need to write about it. What do you think Jeff Gordon's chances are in the chase? Where will he end up the season. I also thought you might like to participate in the following open mic - see below.
NASCAR Community Leader Adam Amick makes his Open Mic debut:
Ladies and Gentlemen, start the Chase!
Okay folks, the field of 12 is set. Ten races to go to determine the 2008 Sprint Cup Champion. Kyle Busch has obviously been the man of the year in NASCAR, but Carl Edwards hasn't let him out of his sights. And look who's lurking after winning two in a row; two-time defending champion Jimmie Johnson.
So for this week's Open Mic, let's hash out the Chase.
Your mission, should you choose to accept it, is to boldly predict how this is going to shake out in 10 weeks.
I want to know who you think is going to be standing with the trophy in November, but more than that, give us your top-12 finishing order, and reason why.
Some points to ponder as you pontificate:
Can Kyle Busch continue on course of winning anytime, anyplace, in any car? Or has his light started to fade a little in the summer?
Does Carl Edwards have more back flips in him during the final stretch? Can Roush power carry him past the upstart JGR Toyotas?
Will Jimmie Johnson channel Cale Yarborough and take his third title in a row? Are he and Chad Knauss possibly the best driver/crew chief combination since Jeff Gordon/Ray Evernham from '95-'98?
Or will another driver step up now that the points race had been flattened out? Dale, Jr. is in the mix and looking consistent in his new digs at Hendrick Motorsports, RCR has three drivers in the mix, and four-time Champ Jeff Gordon was brilliant in averaging fifth-place through the Chase last year, only to fall short on his Drive for Five.
Bragging rights are on the line. Can you rub your crystal ball and predict not only who will win, but get all 12 right? (For good measure, let's throw in #13 for tiebreak number 1, and tell us how many races the champ will win in the chase for tiebreak number 2.)
