- #48 Jimmie Johnson. He tends to come alive in big races.
- #19 Carl Edwards. It takes finesse to win here. Sometimes even more than speed.
- #88 Jeff Gordon. If there ever was a place to come back and win, this would be it for Jeff.
Guys to Watch
- #18 Kyle Busch. Darlington rewards tough drivers.
- #41 Kurt Busch. He really wants a win after that infamous second place finish he received in 2003.
- #43 Aric Almerola. Wouldn’t it be cool if he ran well here in a throwback Petty scheme.
