New Hampshire: NASCAR Sprint Cup Starting Line-up & Race Preview
By Mike Sulka


The NASCAR Sprint Cup series has been racing at the New Hampshire paperclip since 1993. Over the last eight races at the 1.058-mile track, we've had eight different winners....

So, today is going to be a coin flip. Heck... a coin flip sounds pretty good since it would give us 50/50 odds. But, this time around there is no sure thing.

If fact, in the September race in 2008 the top five were: Greg Biffle, Jimmie Johnson, Carl Edwards, Jeff Burton, and Dale Earnhardt, Jr.

Last June, the top five finishers were a completely different group of drivers: Kurt Busch, Michael Waltrip, J.J. Yeley, Martin Truex, Jr., and Elliott Sadler.

Do you see the trend ? Because the trend is that there isn't one. And the race isn't even sponsored by a lottery.

So... let's make this easy... Mark Martin has never won at this track, but has three wins on the season and would be one good pick. If we want to flip the bird at the trend... this is a good one.

But how about this trend breaker.... Tony Stewart has 2 wins and 10 top five finishes in 20 tries, yet didn't finish in the top five in either of last year's races at New Hampshire. Plus 'Smoke' is on a roll and leads the NASCAR Sprint Cup points standings. Even better, it was his win back in 2004 that started this string of non-repeat winners.

So we are picking Tony Stewart to win today.

But keep an eye on Jeff Burton, he has the most wins (4), Kurt Busch (3 wins), and Jeff Gordon (3 wins). None of these drivers had good outings at this track in 2008, yet they have all shown solid strength at New Hampshire over the years.
