Default The BiGD0GG Top 5 Driver List (and I'm not talking all-time, I'm talking right here and right now)

Jeff Gordon - Nothing's change, he will always be a threat to win any race
Jimmy Johnson - He's running the wheels off his race cars
Matt Kenseth - He's always near the front these days
Kurt Busch - He has had some bad luck lately but been running a good race car

----

#5

Used to be Dale Jr. but he's been having his problems I would even say Bobby Labonte is the hotter race car driver right now. He has been getting top 5's like no tommorow.

I am also keeping my eyes on Tony Stewart, he looked good today, if he can come back with a good performance next week I might start playing him.

OK with 3 of your 4.
Don't see how you put Johnson in ahead of Bobby Labonte.
Labonte's last 5 finishes - 2,2,2,3,3
Johnson's last 5 finishes - 9,16,19,1,38

I think Jr will finish the year ahead of Johnson on the points as well.

how bout a bottom five list? here is my personal, unscientific try. i'm sure there are more deserving drivers than these for the actual bottom-feeder list(e.g. larry foyt), but i'm concentrating on those regularly offered in wagering matchups.

no particular order

steve park - just not the same since the unfortunate wreck. #1, #30, #000, it doesn't matter.
john andretti - if trouble doesn't find him, he will find trouble. not quite as bad this year.
jeremy mayfield - wouldn't bet on him with your money.
robby gordon - maybe in a road race, otherwise....yikes.
jeff green - dominant in busch series, clueless in winston cup.

I guess I just don't like Labonte.

Johnson is always up their but normally gets spun out at the end of the race.

Labonte is solid but I noticed his pit crew keeps screwing him up from winning races.

Johnson won the Winston, the Coca-Cola 600 so he is pretty hot these days.

some that aren't likely to win but might well run better than their odds indicate at pocono:

mcmurray 45-1
spencer 50-1
t. labonte 50-1
blaney 60-1

Sandwedge,

Robby Gordon is much improved this year.
He is head up 7-6 vs Mark Martin, 8-5 vs Dale Jarrett, 7-6 vs Tony Stewart, 8-5 vs Jeff Burton.

That said, I would take any of those drivers this week against him for a limit play.

i need to pay better attention, old biases die hard. i guess its just because i'm still pissed off at him for blowing the sonoma road race a couple of years ago that he had in the bag @ 70-1 by racing the lap-down harvick instead of just letting him by late in the race.

but it might just be a trap, he's trying to lure me into betting on him again so he can crush my bankroll like a bug.

btw i sure hope jeremy mayfield doesn't get fired (there have been rumors) as i have a wager on him for "Under wins" for the year, but he has to race in 33 races for it to be action.

That's pretty funny about Mayfield.
I guess you are always in danger of the driver getting fired when taking the under.
Don't like the min # of races started rule.
If you bet a driver under and he stinks so bad he loses his ride, that should be a win.
If you bet the over on a driver and he is over and gets hurt, that should also count.

I like McMurray also, but I need to see him running near the front for a race before I can throw my money down on him. I definately like the way he races but he needs to get a little bit better before he is worth betting.

I also hate picking Bobby Labonte but at those odds it seems tempting. The guy has been getting alot of top 5 finishes this year and he's not afraid to knock somebody out of the way to win the race.

if b-lab hadn't had a lot of trouble the first 3 races of the year he would be sitting pretty in the points race. actually i wouldn't count him out the way it stands now if he keeps running like he has been.
