    The 18 and 4 are big time racers when it comes to big time win .This is Darlington ang I dont see any 1 uear to 2 year drivers in the hunt for winning this race.Martin Truex having the best finish record out of my picks I had to look at the politics of this race and dont see him winning.Kyle. B.not caring about what Nascar recommends for ratings will win if he rolls smart.His brother is a player in who could win also.

    You also might get the wool pulled over your eyes and see some names up front to put them in or closer in making the chase .The 20 or1 would be interesting if they won.The 1 just cant close the deal bit the 20 will do what it takes.You daw what he did to the 22 at Martinsville .Darkhorse 3 , 42.
