Well, the Super Bowl is over and for some people that means the “dead zone” of sports. But not for Nascar fans like us! Yep, I really have to thank my nephew Mike who runs this site—he got me into Nascar, which is the perfect thing to watch on a cold February Sunday afternoon. Thankfully I should be getting off almost every Sunday this year from work—one of my old buddies from my early days here got promoted back to this store as the manager, and he’s already taking care of his ol’ buddy Max!
As for Mystery Picker, I still have no idea who (s)he is. My nephew Mike hasn’t given me much info either, but I was able to extract a pretty good concession from them this year—if I can beat Mystery Picker in Cup Series picks AGAIN this year, then Mystery will be forced to reveal themselves at the end of the season. So sit back, relax, plunk some money down at your nearest legal sports book, and prepare to spend the season winning with Uncle Max!
CUP SERIES Daytona 500: Mystery Picker picks Kyle Busch. Favorite: Kevin Harvick—Harv is also my pick for the 2019 Cup Series regular season championship. Next Favorite: Kyle Larson—KLar kicks off a year of Chevy finally figuring out the Camaro. Dark Horse: Erik Jones—reminder that to qualify as a “Dark Horse”, said driver must be outside the top-10 in points and not have scored a win this year.
XFINITY SERIES Nascar Racing Experience 300: Brandon Jones—A good enough reminder as any that JGR has TWO Xfinity drivers running the full schedule.
TRUCK SERIES NextEra Energy 250: Grant Enfinger—Enfinger points to the front (sorry).
