Dale Earnhardt Junior Or Jimmie Johnson at Chicagoland

Matthew MerrillContributor IJuly 7, 2008

I hate to be Mr. Doom and Gloom, but at the beginning of the year, I had my hunches that Hendrick Motor Sports would not do well, having three power drivers because they cannot balance the scale...but I believe this will be their week...

Dale Earnhardt Jr. has won one of the seven races run at this track and even if he doesn't win, will be a top three car.

Jimmie Johnson has only one win year to date and will be looking for another...I am making Jimmie my wild-card pick for this race...

My estimation of the top five is

1 Dale Earnhardt Jr.

2 Ryan Newman

3 Brian Vickers

4 Jimmie Johnson

5 Kyle Busch
