Poor Tony, I almost feel sorry for him.But my guy didn't make it either.I hope Jimmie Johnson can get his 1st championship.

I'm not a big Stewart fan so I don't feel too bad for him. My daughter is a big Gordon fan, but I don't think he will make it to the top. My vote is for Mark Martin. This may be his last season, he is a great racer, he deserves it, & damnit I think he can do it.

Kasey has a lot of momentum right now. He ran very well last night and that usually means you'll run well at Loudon and Phoenix. There is Charlotte, Texas, and Atlanta coming up, that he has won at before. Talladega is a wildcard. Anything can happen there. I see Kasey running strong and in serious contention for the title.

Kahne. Johnson really has an edge in my mind, no team is as consistent on 1.5 mile and restrictor plate tracks. If Johnson does well at New Hampshire next week, I think the Cup is his. Wasn't NBC's coverage god awful last night?

Karma's a biatch, ain't it Tony? I say Johnson takes the whole thing.

Wasn't NBC's coverage god awful last night? NBC always sucks when they cover a NEXTEL race. Too many commercials. I would like to see Junior win a championship. That would be pretty cool.

Hey Shorty, you hit the nail on the head with Stewart! I was so glad to see he didn't make it. It would be nice to see Martin take it this year.

I think Tony, even if he had made it, had no momentum so would not have done well. Jeff Gordon if he races like that every week will finish terribly bad, but he has been doing better and richmond has been his worst track the past 3 years. Harvick is my pick.

I'm not much of a Stewart fan so I am glad someone else got that spot. I do like Johnson, Busch and Harvick..BUT I am pulling for Mark Martin in this one, the old man has been nothing but class his entire career, he deserves a championship on his way out.

I can take or leave Tony the Tiger. I glad Kasey got in there. If Matt Kenseth can keep up his top ten finishes along with a win or two, I think he will take it although it would be nice to see Mark Martin take it also.

I see it coming down to Kenseth, Johnson, and Harvick. I guess I wouldn't be surprised if this is the year that Happy finally lives up to the hype. I'm just glad the Rainbow Warrior made it back into the chase. Near the end of that Richmond race, with all the problems he was having, it was looking bad. As he said after the race, "Man, I'm glad Richmond isn't one of the last ten races!"

I would love to see Martin win But I think Matt Kenseth will pull it off. He has been very consistant and has a very good pitt crew
