These are totally gutless picks, but it's hard to look too far past "Mr. Two-Time" and company:

 

1. James Dargo (His "home" track . . .)

2. P$ (Just fast, could cost me a very much needed $250)

3. Haldeman (When he is hooked up and fast, he could lap the field)

 

Alt. Glazed and Confused (He seems to be attracted to the green stuff around this track; otherwise, look out!)

 

Hard Charger: I'll let you know after qualy. (Can the hard charger pass half the field in the grass on the way to T1?)

Not passing in the grass at turn one, however there is a place to pass before the brake zone into 5 that a really talented driver can pass in the grass and then get the car slowed (see Todd Buras).
