In the dominance of Kyle Busch and Carl Edwards this season, there have been at least two top drivers that have not been to victory lane yet this season. Jeff Gordon and Tony Stewart have done well in the past at the road course race track, winning 7 of the last 10 races, combined. In addition to Jeff Gordon & Tony Stewart, here are some of the other drivers that are looking for a win that would do great at Infineon:
Robby Gordon (#7): Two of the three races that he has won were at the road courses of Watkin's Glen and Infineon, both in 2003 and he hasn't won since he won both races in 2003.
Sam Hornish Jr. (#77): Though he is now in NASCAR, Hornish is no stranger to the road course. He has raced there in Indy cars.
Boris Said (#60): Said has been so close a few times of winning a race. He won a pole at Infineon in 2003 and Daytona in 2006. He is also a racing pro and does well in any car that he races in.
Ron Fellows (#01): Fellows have been racing at the road courses in the NASCAR top series since 1995. He did win three Nationwide Series races at Watkin's Glen, the last one being 2001. He races in the Le Mans Series.
Patrick Carpentier (#10): Like Hornish, Carpentier has also raced in the Indy Cars at Infineon and is no stranger to the track. He made his NASCAR debut in 2007 at Watkin's Glen.
Scott Pruett (#41): He is filling in for the #41 car this week. He was full time in NASCAR in 2000. He got spun trying to win at the Mexican road course in the 2007 Nationwide Series race and teammate Juan Pablo Montoya ended up winning the race.
Marcos Ambrose (#21): Trying to attempt to make his first start in the Sprint Cup. He is a road course pro. He was spun at Montréal in 2007 by Robby Gordon in the Nationwide Series race and finished 7th. Robby Gordon got penalized and was not able to race in the race at Pocono the next day. The next week, Robby Gordon let Ambrose race in his race car.
Dario Franchitti (#40): Like Hornish and Carpentier before, Franchitti is also not a stranger to this track, as he too raced at this track in the Indy cars.
Brian Vickers (#83): Vickers have done well with Red Bull Racing this season. He even improved in the standings into the Top 20. He has finished well this season.
A.J. Allmendinger (#84): Allmendinger has also done well, since taking the car back from Mike Skinner at Talladega. He is a former Champ Cup driver.
Juan Pablo Motoya (#42): Montoya is looking for his first win of the season and to win at Infineon for the second year in a row.
