NASCAR PICKS!! Talladega ~ Results & link to Darlington on page 2

The 10th race of the 2013 season is the "Aaron's 499" at Talladega Superspeedway on SUNDAY May 5th#

Qualifying is #COLOR=red#SATURDAY#/COLOR# May 4th# Please make your picks beforethe qualifying is scheduled to begin#

Talladega Superspeedway is a tri-oval track with a lap distace of 2#66 miles# 188 laps will equal a total race distance of 500 miles#

The #88 JR & the #24 share the most wins here since 1975# Each has 5 victories#

Other history:

In 5/12, #24 J Gordon won the pole in a race won by #2 B Kezelowski#

In 10/12, #5 K Kahne turned in the fastest qualifying time and #20 M Kenseth took a ride to Victory Lane#

In 4/11, #24 J Gordon was in the 1st starting grid and we saw #48 J Johnson grab the checkered flag#

In 10/11, #55 M Martin started the race in 1st place but 1st place honors at the end of the race went to #15 C Bowyer#

In 4/10, #48 J Johnson sat on the pole in a race won by #29 K Harvick#


In 10/10, #42 Juan Pablo Montoya was 1st behind the pace car to start the race and #15 C Bowyer was the victor at the end#

The races in 2009 were won by #2 B Kezelowski and #1J McMurray#

Tough race to pick####can you avoid the "big one"? The usual big wreck that just may scramble your score to the upper stratosphere###

What about fuel strategy? Tires? GOOD LUCK!

OK! I am ready to pick###

My 'Dega picks are:

J Johnson <~~ Always seems to be hanging around####

Kyle Busch <~~ His string of spring race victories was broken at Richmond last week###he'll be bouncing back at "Deaga###

B Kezelowski<~~~ Speaking of strings###he'll be going for 2 in a row here###

JR!! <~~~ Back in my good graces after a 10th place finsh last week### I REALLY think he's top 3 bound ###

K Kahne <~~~ I haven't picked the #5 in a looooooooooong time###I have a hunch###

My spare will be T Stewart####almost a third of the season gone and he's 22nd in the point standings? Something not right###

Picks received:

#COLOR=red#Racer X

#88
#14
#2
#48
#99

Spare is #29#/COLOR#

A reminder about the default thread#

If you might miss a week, and you posted to the default thread, those picks will be used in your absence#

I noticed 3 DIS-racers have no defaults when I scored Richmond#

The default thread is at:

#url#http://www#disboards#com/showthread#php?p=47471877[/url]

Also,you can always PM ethe picks any time.

So...

Good Luck EVERYBODY...and...ENJOY the race!
