NASCAR PICKS!! Charlotte ~ Results & link to Kansas on page 2

We have a SATURDAY race at Charlotte Motor Speedway called the "Bank of America 500: on October 16th.

Qualifying is set for THURSDAY, October 11th. Please make your picks before qualifying is scheduled to begin.

This is the 5th race in the chase and the 31st for the 2012 season.

Charlotte Motor Speedway is an oval track with a lap distance of 1.50 miles. Looks like 334 laps of NASCAR racing will give us a total race distance of 501 miles.
This is our 2nd visit to this track this year.

J Johnson & D Waltrip both have won 6 times here. They hold top dog honors in victories since 1975.

Other history:

In 5/12, E Almirola had pole honors in a race won by #5 K Kahne.

In 5/11, #2 B Kezelowsi was in the first starting grid but #29 K Harvick took home the checkered flag.

In 10/11, #14 T Stewart was on top the pole in a race won y #17 M Keseth.

In 5/10, #39 R Newman turned in the fastest qualifying time and #51 Kurt Busch rode into Victory Lane.

In 10/10, #24 J Gordon was first behind the pace car to start the race but gave way to race winner #1 J McMurray.

In 5/09, #39 R Neman showed off his qualifying skills and #00 D Reutimann was first to cross the start-finish line.

In 10/09, #48 J Johnson went wire to wire.

#5 K Kahne 31 J Burton won the 2008 races.

Hmmm...all that history doesn't seem to be much help to me in the 2012 chase.

Oh well..here's my Charlotte picks:

J Johnson<~~ THe #48 hasn't won here since 2009...he had a lackluster Talladega...so...he'll bounce back at Charlotte! (I Hope)

D Hamlin <~~~ Time's a wastin' Denny! Get a move on....

B Kezelowski <~~~~ Despite the big pile up on the last lap at "Dega...the kid managed a th place finish....pencil him as my solidest pick at Charltte...he's focused..

G Biffle <~~~ I can't believe I didn't pick him last week...my bad!

T Stewart <~~~ He was leading when the "Big One" happened...he hasn't given up...so..I won't give up on him....this week...

My spare wil be JR! I know..he seems to be out of gas...

Picks received....
