One of the questions I asked of the six guests we had ON PIT ROW last night was:
“Who is your pick to win at the re-paved Darlington Raceway in May?
Now, with the race more than six weeks away, and six of the most opinionated folks you’d ever want to assemble being asked, I thought I’d get a big variety of answers.
What I got was Greg Biffle. Last night was all Biffle - all the time, at least for Darlington.
All Cup drivers are fast. But Biffle is one of the ones that I think of when we come up to a particularly fast track. The fact that Greg was one of the Goodyear tire testers at this weeks Darlingon tests – and one of the first to hit 200 mph on the backstretch there – may have contributed to the prominent position he held in the frontal lobes of the brains of my guests last night. I don’t know.
Somebody may have picked a driver other than the “Biff”, but I don’t recall if they did. I stopped making notes after like three in a row. The funny thing is, I didn’t give my pick, which I had prepared prior to the show. It was Biffle. Mass hypnosis, blogging style.
Who would be your pick to win the spring race on the Lady in Black?
