Another NASCAR Sprint Cup series season is here. This year with all the twists to qualifying and the points system; 2014 is shaping up to be one of the best seasons in the last 10 years.
Here are my predications for the 2014 Chase for Championship.
Jeff Gordon- Gordon will try and complete the “Drive for 5” in 2014. If he wins it all does he hang up the helmet?
Tony Stewart- He is back! After missing the Chase last season after well documented injury. Now Stewart is as hungry as ever.
Kevin Harvick- That new team he joined for 2014 was formally the 39 team. Harvick is as happy and content as I think we ever seen him. He will be a force in the Chase.
Jimmie Johnson- Can #6pack make it #se7en championships?
Greg Biffle- He really likes this new points system. The Ford program has been behind on the new Gen-6 car but Biffle will carry the RFR banner in 2014.
Kasey Kahne- I always say Kahne will win a bunch of races and challenge for the title. Kahne wins a bunch of races but never can seem to put it together in the Chase. Is 2014 the year?
Matt Kenseth- He was the bridesmaid last year to Johnson but Kenseth won’t suffer the second place curse in 2014.
Paul Menard- My bold pick #1 in my Chase field.
Clint Bowyer- 2013 is behind them and Bowyer is looking to find victory lane again after failing to win a race in 2013.
Dale Earnhardt, Jr. - If Earnhardt can win a few races in 2014 and continue the consistency of 2013 he just might win the title and send his crew chief off with a championship.
Kyle Busch- He can win in anything but he has yet to win a Sprint Cup title. That could change in 2014 for Busch.
Kurt Busch- Second chances are hard to come by in this sport. The elder Busch is making the most of his and will make the Chase in 2014.
Carl Edwards- I never thought that Edwards had gotten over the 2011 Chase. The hangover ends in 2014.
Denny Hamlin- He is out to prove the doubters wrong in 2014. His hot start to 2014 is doing just that. Hamlin makes the Chase, any questions?
Marcos Ambrose- This pick is probably not so bold considering he can win on the road courses. Still don’t be surprised if he pulls off a win on an oval.
Ryan Newman- Here is another driver with a new team in 2014. Newman is another driver who is looking to prove some people wrong.
