SCOTT SPEED WILL ALWAYS BE NUMBER ONE AND WON'T BE REPLACED! SPEED 4 HIRE! (Photo Thanks To Jordan on Twitter)
After looking at the picks and deciding hard i made a few lists: 1)top 5 to cheer on every race, 2) dark horse pick, 3) chase pick, and 4) Wild Cards. I picked many drivers and will explain briefly why. Please do not hate on the ones i picked! :) Let's get started!
Number 2 is Kyle "Rowdy" Busch. I picked him, not only because he had an outstanding 2010 season, but also because he walks into NASCAR with a full attitude and isn't afraid to get down and dirty. From Nationwide, Trucks, all the way to Sprint Cup, Rowdy was on the ball. I hope he has a great 2011 and goes walking away with many victories! He is always in my books, A CHASE CONTENDER.
Number 3 is Kasey Kahne. Driver of the #9 Budweiser is the 2010 season, he then transferred into Red Bull Racing. He will be driving the number 4! He has a lot of potential with being rookie of the year, and also having many poles a few great wins. I have to say i can see a lot coming from this driver in the 2011 season. He is also in the lines of being a CHASE CONTENDER.
Number 4 is Juan Pablo Montoya. He is the driver of the #42! He's got a lot of skill and ability to do well in 2011. He has the car, can make the races and run them well. He is a CHASE CONTENDER. Montoya will also fall under the category of DARK HORSE.
Last but not least number 5 goes to Joey Logano. Nicknamed "Slice Bread" and is the driver of #20 Joe Gibbs Racing. A young driver, ready and eager to continue and grow in the racing of NASCAR. Being in the heat of race, leading races, or even winning (New Hampshire) He's made a big statement. He is under CHASE CONTENDER and DARK HORSE as well.
The list of top 5 doesn't mean they are gonna be my favorite, but they are the ones i will watch the most. As for the list of chase contenders. Here is what i believe will possibly be the chase contenders so far. NOTE: This is my opinion and few, i am not saying this is what you should follow! also this will change over the entire 2011 season!
*Juan Pablo Montoya
and so many more.. this is only the beginning of my list. IT IS ANYONE'S GAME IN 2011!
As for Dark Horse Picks I have so Far:
-Juan Pablo Montoya
*SUBJECT TO CHANGE*
Last but not least Wild Card Picks So Far:
*SUBJECT TO CHANGE*
As you can see, Many Categories will change, I may even mix up my top 5 choices! This is all my opinion and what i think of the 2011 season. please do not be offended by this at all.
