2011 Kobalt Tools 400 Preview:
Tomorrow is the 2011 Kobalt Tools 400 race from right here in Las Vegas, Nevada. During qualifying Matt Kenseth set the qualifying record at the Las Vegas Motor Speedway. Australian Marcos Ambrose, who I'm a fan of, got second in qualifying with Carl Edwards and Greg Biffle right behind them in row 2. However, that said, I did a little bit of research yesterday and figured something out that could be a factor in this race. Through the first two races only five drivers have been consistent the entire Sprint Cup Season so far. Everyone else has either done really good in one race and really bad in the other or bad in both races. Those five drivers are Kyle Busch, Kurt Busch, Mark Martin, AJ Allmendinger, and Martin Truex, Jr. Those are the five guys I will recommend for any fantasy contests or pick'em contests just for that reason because no one else has been consistent. Carl Edwards and Kevin Harvick also are good possibilities. AJ Allmendinger is going to be the rising star this year at this rate along with Daytona 500 winner Trevor Bayne. Going to officially go with a top five of Kyle Busch, AJ Allmendinger, Kurt Busch, Carl Edwards, and Jimmie Johnson with Kyle winning it.
Pick to win it: Kyle Busch
The Next Five: Kurt Busch, Carl Edwards, Jimmie Johnson, AJ Allmendinger, Kevin Harvick
Dark Horse Picks: AJ Allmendinger, Marcos Ambrose, Martin Truex, Jr.
