Another race, another Nationwide-only winner? Only time will tell.

I'm gonna keep this short and sweet; my pick to win is the #3 of Dillon and my dark horse is gonna be the #7 of Patrick (especially if it urns inot a fuel mileage race). Look for good runs from the Roush Fords too. In fact, I think the only one that can beat the Roush Fords is Dillon that's why I picked him.

Starting line-up after the jump. See you in the comments!
