Federated Auto Parts 400

Had a close one last week with Jeff Gordon for the win but settled with a nice 2nd place finish to get the top 3 win to pick up a little change. This week I'm looking at 2 drivers for the win. I really hope Gordon does well and makes the chase but going in another direction:

Dale Jr at +1100 seems like a good play IMO. Finished 2nd earlier this year at this track and sitting on the pole with some decent practice runs. He'll be running the same car he brought here in the spring, so I think the books are giving way too much respect to the Toyotas and leaving Jr with a very nice number.

Putting a small play on a driver that has been mediocre at best recently. Starting in the 20th spot he will have his work cut out for him but as a veteran driver that does well on the shorter tracks I think it's worth a small play. He had some very good practice runs and pit strategy could help get him up front....Jeff Burton +5000

GL and enjoy the race!!!

Actually about a third of the crowd cheered when Gordon took first but the other 2/3 went nuts when Jr beat him..tons of Jr fans everywhere!
