This week we head to beautiful Montreal, Quebec, Canada. We also head there with only one Sprint Cup Driver joining us! Kyle Busch.
When you have 42 drivers against one your chances are pretty good this week that we will not see a Sprint Cup regular win. Busch is good, but he is facing some of the best road course drivers around.
Jacques Villeneuve, Andrew Ranger, Ron Fellows, Alex Tagliani, and Patrick Carpentier are probably your best bet to win, but Cole Whitt, Brendan Gaughan, Elliott Sadler and Ricky Stenhouse could reach up and grab this one.
Let's not forget about Sam Hornish Jr. either. His run last week should put him squarely in the favorite to win category.

44 teams are entered this week, with the #20 not being one of them. One team will be cryin' in their poutine once qualifying is over! Just a few notes this week:
- #7- Danica Patrick was out after just a few turns last week, so as long as she can avoid running in the back of a spinning race car, we should be able to see what Patrick can do in Canada.
- #12- Sam Hornish was blocked by his own teammate which hurt his chances of catching Carl Edwards. Keselowski is not here this week, but Hornish should not expect Jacques Villeneuve to act like a teammate this week.
- #18- Every week that McDowell is in the Nationwide Series I remark about how much of an opportunity he has, but McDriver has yet to prove anything. So this will be the last time I include him until he starts to show that he deserves to get these starts.
Make sure to either tune in or set your DVR for this Saturday! At 2pm eastern ESPN will air the live running of the NAPA Auto Parts 200! Enjoy!
