    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.

    That's what I want to hear. I don't care how cute or nice they are, I want to know if they're gonna win and earn me points. LOL

    Another vote for Kasey Kahne (Go, Kasey!!). :thumbsup2

    Also Clint Bowyer and probably Jimmie Johnson.

    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.

    As I self professed Nascar fanatic, it would be hard to pick just one driver for the whole year. You have different tracks were different driver do better. My favorite is Denny Hamlin (hometown hero) But I think I would be leaning toward Matt Kenesth, Tony Stewart, Clint Bowyer or Brad Keslowski. Starting tomorrow at 1 p.m. est on Fox will be having qualifying for the Daytona race next sunday. Watch the commentary and you will learn alot about the drivers and the new cars. But welcome to the world of cars going fast and turning left.

    Tough to pick a driver for the entire year but I'd go with Jimmie Johnson or Matt Kenseth for consistent, steady racing. Not much excitement with either of them but they always seem to do well. For points and excitement....Tony Stewart or Kyle Busch. They will keep people talking.

    I don't plan on watching any of the races. I have no interest in seeing cars driving around in a circles for hours. ;) I just want to earn the most points I can on my consumer panel. When I have enough, I'm redeeming them for a Vitamix.

    I do appreciate all the help though. I want to make an informed decision.

    If you need to pick one driver for the entire season, that makes it much harder. I would still pick Tony Stewart, though.
