The Daytona 500. My Pick to Win

I don't normally pick winners of races, and there's a good reason why.  I'm usually wrong.  Today, however, I feel pretty good about the chap pictured above.  Curse me all you want to, but I'm picking Kevin Harvick to win the 2009 Daytona 500.

Winning the Daytona 500 is something that most drivers would love to have on their resume, but few actually do.  Kevin's already won, beating Mark Martin to the line in 2007.  I watched last Saturday's Bud Shootout and frankly found my jaw hanging down around the area that my shoe laces usually occupy.  That's how good this young man is, and yes, I can call him a young man, because I was wearing long pants when Kevin Harvick was still in diapers.

On Sunday, NASCAR kicks off a brand new season, and I'm guessing that Kevin Harvick will be right up there with the leaders at the end of the race.  Harvick showed that basic 'no fear' attitude on Saturday, charging to the front and leading the only lap that really matters:  The last lap.

Do I think Kevin Harvick can do it again, just like he did in the Bud Shootout?  Yep.  You betcha.  Please, don't mortage your house or bet your car on this, but I'm thinking we'll get to see some more spectacular burnouts when Kevin Harvick wins the 2009 Daytona 500.


  1. I would have to believe you may be right on this one. Just don't factor out Shrubs. That kid has more balls than brains. I think if he can get help, Kyle may be your spoiler. Monte has picked Papa Gordon to win, paws down.

  2. Extended auto warranty coverage for new, used or pre-owned cars, vans, trucks and sport utility vehicles.


Feel free to leave comments. All I ask is that you keep it clean here.
