As a fan that is relatively unfamiliar with the USAC circuit, can anyone tell me which driver(s) to watch tomorrow?
Of the travelers coming in here's the way they break down:
Daron Clayton & Tom Meseraull (Truckers 24 hour team) - Both have been struggling with new equipment this year but these two guys aren't afraid to win it or wreck it. I hope they brought lots of frames with them.
Levin Jones & Tracy Hines (Tony Stewart Racing) - Top notch talent with some excellent setup guys on the crew. Look for them to come on strong late in the race, especially Levi.
Brad Sweet & Brady Bacon (Kasey Kahn Racing) - Some young drivers with a lot of b@lls. These guys will probably be responsible for most of the wheels up action you see.
Hunter Schuerenberg - Another young talented kid with a bright future. He should be in a TSR or Kahne ride in my opinion.
Cole Whitt & Daren Hagen - (Keith Kuntz Motorsports) - Two excellent racers who can surprise you. Don't count them out.
Shane Cottle - He's been real strong in the Contos car this year. Always a threat to win. Good, clean drivers.
Jerry Coons Jr aka "Coondog" - My favorite driver. Jerry is running for points for the first time in both dirt and pavement Sprints for Hoffman Racing. He's eager for a championship. If he gets a midget ride for the easter swing, this is your ARDC winner
Damian Gardner & Dave Darland - Lots and lots of experience here. Either one will make it an exciting race. Either one can win on any track.
