HMS is taking home the championship. At this point I don't care which one of the three gets it. I would prefer Jeff but it really looks like a 3 peat for Jimmy. As a last resort, anyone in the chase except Shrub. I'd rather have a sister working in a whore house than a brother that was a Kyle Busch fan.

I agree . I don't know whats going on in Ray's camp. Hear now he is suing Robby Gordon. I guess he is trying to get his divorce money back lol I hate that Kasey failed to
make the chase.

I would love to see any of the HMS cars win but at this point it's anybody BUT Bush. I do have a feeling it will be a three time for Johnson.

I'm not sure why you all think that someone from HMS will win the championship, other than the fact you hope they will.

If you look at averages and wins, three out of the four teams are close, so it could be anyones to win.

Team - Average between the 3 drivers - wins between the 3 drivers.

JGR - 5 - 9 (KB has 8)

HMS - 6 - 5 (JJ has 4)

RFR - 8 - 6 (CE has 6)

RCR - 8 - 2

As the year is going it looks like a race between KB, CE and JJ but take a look at last year.

CB started 12th and finished 3rd.

So no one is really out of it.

Well, I do think JJ will win it, but you're right anyone can win it.

Kasey is my wifes fav driver too. Dodge just sux anyway. MOPAR stands for Moments Of Power Are Rare. LOL Yeah would be nice to see him in a Chevy. I think it was last years race that he said Dodge sux. I really thought that he was gonna get fired for that. But.... Who knows.

I don't think it's Dodge so much as it is who drives them.

GEM - KK, ES, PC

RP - BL, KP

CG - JPM, DF, RS

ROBBY G - RG

PENSKE - RN, KB, SHJ

That's not what I call a stella group of drivers

You are right. It's anyone's game. All it takes if for 1 of the drivers to have a little more luck than the other 11. They are all decent drivers in decent equipment with decent crews so as far as I'm concerned it's going to boil down to who has the best luck.
