Need help picking NASCAR driver

Some of you may remember me asking for help picking an NFL team for a promotion my consumer panel ran.
Well, now I have to pick a NASCAR driver. In this promotion, I choose one driver and for each weekend race I'll earn points if my driver finishes in the top 3.

So, which driver is going to earn me the most points?

I have to say Tony Steward. Just because I was a major Dale Earnhardt fan (NOT Jr) & Tony's attitude reminds me so much of him. (but then again he has mellowed out since becoming a team owner) Unfortunate.

[FONT="Century Gothic"] I too like Tony...but for someone who seems to be in the money every week my bet would be Jimmy Johnson- Clint Bowyer or I hate to say it Kyle Busch.[/FONT]

Another vote for Kasey Kahne (Go, Kasey!!).

Also Clint Bowyer and probably Jimmie Johnson.

Do you pick one driver for the entire season, or a different driver each week? If a different driver each week, look for drivers that have had success at a particular track. You can view the past Daytona 500 winners at http://www.usatoday.com/story/sports...nners/1914799/.

Not sure who this guy is but I looooove Tony StewarT. He's been my favorite since he came to NASCAR. I have a feeling he's going to have a very good year.

I am a JR. fan, but if I was looking for points, I'd go with Jimmie Johnson.
