Nationwide and Cup series qualify today so let's see how that goes......I feel this is a hard cup race to pick a winner being the first rce in the chase. This will set the tone and jumpstart a team with a win obviously. Jeff Gordon carries the most momentum in my opinion so I look for him to have a great run. Check out he driver ratings for this track and you can see this will be a tough one to pick..........

Great job Finance!!! Glad I stayed off this one......NASCAR has to do something about all this fuel mileage shit and let them race. Great start for Jr in the chase....statistically he has been the most consistent driver all season but needs to start winning some damn races!!!

Who’s HOT at New Hampshire

- Denny Hamlin, a winner at “The Magic Mile” in 2007, leads all drivers with a 7.2 average finish.

- Tony Stewart leads all drivers with a 114.0 rating and 847 laps led, is a two-time NHMS winner and also is coming off a victory in last weekend’s Chase opener at Chicagoland Speedway.

- Ryan Newman won this year’s first race in New Hampshire, his third victory on the Loudon oval, and had top-10 finishes in each of last year’s events.

- Jimmie Johnson also is a three-time winner at NHMS and has a driver rating of 105.8 on the 1.058-mile track. He finished fifth there in July.

Who’s NOT HOT at New Hampshire

- Brad Keselowski has finished no higher than 18th in his last three starts and was 35th there in this year’s first race July 17.

- Matt Kenseth’s average finish in his last seven starts is 23rd and he is one of four drivers in this year’s Chase who is without a Sprint Cup Series victory in New Hampshire.

- Besides Keselowski and Kenseth, the other Chase drivers still looking for their first NHMS win are Carl Edwards and Dale Earnhardt Jr. Both finished outside the top ten in July’s race.

Who Else to Watch at New Hampshire

- A second-place finish in last weekend’s Chase opener lifted Kevin Harvick into the points lead. The Richard Childress Racing driver has led 251 laps in his last 13 Loudon starts and won this race in 2006.

- Kurt Busch has a driver rating of 95.4 and has finished sixth or better in five of his last seven starts, including a victory in 2008. He led 66 laps en route to a 10th-place finish in July.

- With an average finish of 11.7 and a driver rating at 107.3, Jeff Gordon deserves a close look this weekend. He does have three wins in New Hampshire, but the last one came in 1998.

- Clint Bowyer’s a two-time winner of this race and has led 425 laps over the last six seasons, second only to Tony Stewart.
