Texas-sized NASCAR night race

As the first night race in the season the race should be fast and frenzied as drivers and crews try to keep up with track conditions and manage a comfortable ride on a somewhat bumpy surface. So far this weekend it looks like the track is super fast and has a lot of grip which usually is the perfect wreck recipe for inexperienced drivers — and Robby “Crash” Gordon alike (sorry, I couldn’t resist!)

Going into the 24 degree banked turns at 200 m.p.h. and fishtailing out seems to be the way to go. Sounds like a great opportunity for dirt track drivers and those with amazing ability to save a car without hitting anything. It has been hot most of the day — 90  degrees — and will cool down as the evening progresses so those teams with superior crew chiefs who can make good calls with adjustments should reign supreme.

My fantasy drivers: Matt Kenseth, Dale Earnhardt, Jr., Clint Bowyer and David Ragan.

Let’s go racing boys!
