Bold Predictions for the 2014 Season

Predictions about a few months down the road?  That's for wimps!  Here's a look at what will happen in the season AFTER this upcoming season!  See that limb--I'm out on it!

--Danica Patrick will not run Cup full-time.

--Austin Dillon will enter Cup in the #3 car, overhyped like you wouldn't believe.

--Ryan Newman will move to Earnhardt-Ganassi Racing, taking over for Juan Pablo Montoya…but the Target sponsorship will shift to Jamie McMurray.

--One of the two Dover dates will be transferred to Iowa.

--The biggest "Story Everyone Talks About That Nobody Cares About" will be Sprint leaving as a title sponsor.

--Bobby Labonte will move to a partial-schedule.

--Jeff Burton will retire, but will stay with the sport in an advisory role.

--Jeremy Mayfield will make an attempt at a race in a severely underfunded car.

--There'll be less start-and-parks and more shoe-string budget teams (like BK Racing and TBR).

--The Chase for the Cup will stay exactly as it is.

--Kyle Busch will stay at Joe Gibbs Racing, while Kurt Busch will still be out of a top-flight ride.

--The RCR-to-Dodge rumor STILL won't go away.
