Watch 'em all at first. Those that were in this years chase for sure, but don't rule out Jeff Gordon, Dale Jr., and others. I think the #24 is going to be a car to watch this year as they ended last season insanely strong and on a high note.
I think Carl Edwards is going to be one to watch as well. The guys that were in the top 3 or 4 at the end of last year were beating on Tony's door quite a bit. Of course, don't rule Tony out either!
While I lean towards being a Hendrick Motor Sports fan, I love watching the race and watching many of the drivers. Martin, DJ, Kenseth, Kurt Busch, Harvick, etc. It's fun to watch how different drivers excell at different tracks. Ken Schrader typically doesn't do well at bigger tracks, but he's pretty dang good at the short track. Roush's guys are just incredible. He has assembled problably the best talent on the circuit to drive his Cup cars. While I can see his displeasure with NASCARS ruling about the number of teams, it would be nice to see some teams like BDR, PE, and others be more involved other than always seeing DEI, RCR, Roush, and HMS. Though RCR has been struggling for some time. Of those four, Roush and HMS seem to be at the top.
I hope to watch more racing this year. I love DW as an announcer, and prefer his gang on TNT (or is it Fox?) over the others. Glad DW's racing in the Truck series doesn't usually interfere with his announcing!
Is Truex, Jr. going to be running more Cup races this year? He seemingly dominated the Busch series last year!
