The second elimination round of the playoffs.
1. #88 Dale Earnhardt Jr. He’s good here and he kind of has to win in order to secure his spot in the next round of NASCAR’s playoffs.
2. #48 Jimmie Johnson. He’s in the same boat as Dale but without quite as much of the storied background at this track.
3. #24 Jeff Gordon. He has a bit more cushion, but the same deal applies. He’s usually cool under pressure.
Guys to watch
The rest of the field. You never know what will happen in “The Alabama Lottery”
It’s plate racing again! With so much more on the line. It should be sick.
