my supercool predictions for ‘the chase’

It is my duty as a sports blogger to have an opinion on everything and to make bold predictions. Normally I’m against this, everything doesn’t need to be said, but I thought it could be fun to make predictions about the outcome of The Chase, predictions that even I don’t take that seriously. Enjoy!

(in the order of the current points standings)

Mark Martin (Photo Credit: Rusty Jarrett/Getty Images for NASCAR) 1.) Mark Martin – I have believe that Mark Martin will win the Championship, unless something happens that makes it so that he doesn’t.
Jimmie Johnson (Photo Credit: Rusty Jarrett/Getty Images for NASCAR) 2.) Jimmie Johnson – Jimmie will definitely not win the Championship for a 4th straight year, because that would just be greedy and show-offy.

Juan Pablo Montoya (Photo Credit: Rusty Jarrett/Getty Images for NASCAR) 4.) Juan Pablo Montoya – JPM will be frustrated.
Kurt Busch (Photo Credit: Rusty Jarrett/Getty Images for NASCAR) 5.) Kurt Busch – Hmm… Kurt will be all “Whatever” and I’ll be all “Whatever” and then he’ll be all, “Yeah, whatever.” He’s also writing for the Chicago Tribune’s Players Only blog on a weekly basis for the remainder of the season.
Tony Stewart (Photo Credit: Rusty Jarrett/Getty Images for NASCAR) 6.) Tony Stewart – Tony will get close to the Championship but won’t be able to seal the deal. He’ll continue to “mentor” young female drivers.
Ryan Newman (Photo Credit: Rusty Jarrett/Getty Images for NASCAR) 7.) Ryan Newman – He’s in the Chase? Oh, right, right. Ryan will win at least one race before the year is over.
Brian Vickers (Photo Credit: Rusty Jarrett/Getty Images for NASCAR) 8.) Brian Vickers – Bri Bri will be a threat for the Championship. He’ll continue to be supercute and will write a diary for Maxim.com. No really, he’s supposed to do that.
Greg Biffle (Photo Credit: Rusty Jarrett/Getty Images for NASCAR) 9.) Greg Biffle – Biffle’s eyes will pierce through you like lasers. They really do. His stare is intense. Yeah, he’s not winning this thing.
Jeff Gordon (Photo Credit: Rusty Jarrett/Getty Images for NASCAR) 10.) Jeff Gordon – Jeff will hopefully *fingers crossed* impregnate his wife a second time and make the second cutest kid ever! I’d like to think he’d win the Sprint Cup but that’d mean I’d have to be mean to Mark Martin.
Carl Edwards (Photo Credit: Rusty Jarrett/Getty Images for NASCAR) 11.) Carl Edwards – Oh, Carly. Well, his Frisbee foot will heal just in time for him to not win the Championship. He’ll continue to confound female NASCAR fans everywhere with his supreme polite gorgeousness.
Kasey Kahne (Photo Credit: Rusty Jarrett/Getty Images for NASCAR) 12.) Kasey Kahne – Kasey will pick himself up and dust himself off and start all over again tomorrow at Dover. He’ll improve his position. Kasey will also continue to confound me with his ability to be absolutely adorable without even trying. Look at that photo, c’mon!
