Bank of America 500 at Lowe’s Motor Speedway Preview

Posted by chadmusselman on October 10, 2008

The boys are racing under the lights for the last time this season with a Saturday night race in Charlotte at the Lowe’s Motor Speedway. Lowe’s is a good track to watch the race since it’s large enough to let them open up the cars and build speed, and it usually has some good racing to create some excitement. The past few races have been getting more competitive and the finishes have been way more exciting than earlier in the season. Maybe they’re finally figuring out the new car.

My team for this week:

Chaser: Carl Edwards
Carl is money at Lowe’s. In 7 career races he has 6 top 10s, and his worst finish was 15th. His average finish of 7.6 is unbeatable, as he will be Saturday night.

Alternate Chaser: Jeff Burton
Jeff hasn’t received much love from the media this year with Kyle and Carl winning so much, and Biffle making a run in the chase, but he’s been a great driver all year. At this speedway he’s finished in the top 10 4 of the last 5 races. I think he has another one in him.

Kasey Kahne
Kasey struggled mightily here early in his career. He had 0 top 10s in his first four races. In the past 5 he’s had 3 wins and 4 top 10s. Look for Kasey to keep it up this weekend with another strong run.

Ryan Newman
Ryan Newman has been absolutely horrible at Lowe’s Motor Speedway in his last 5 trips here. He’s finished 21st or worse in each of those races. None the less, I think he’s due for a top 10 run. He has 5 of them in his career at the track, so he knows how to get around it.

Darkhorse: Mark Martin
25 career races with 2 wins, 12 top 5s, and 14 top 10s are pretty impressive numbers for Mark. In his first 13 races here he had 12 top 10 finishes, then he went on a streak of 6 races without a top 10 finish. He’s been mediocre of late, but look for him to return to the form of earlier years with a very strong run.
