Who will win the “Super Bowl of Nascar”? Will Dale Jr. take home his first big victory racing under the Hendrick’s flag? Remember, Junior is driving for a new team, in a new car, in 2008. Earnhardt Jr. is now #88. Will Jeff Gordon get off to a hot start in 2008? Is this the race where Juan Pablo Montoya breaks through on the biggest stage? All these questions will be answered soon at the biggest auto racing spectacle in the country.
