The 2008 Sprint Cup season got off to a rousing start with Ryan Newman’sDaytona 500 win. The results of Speedweeks seemed to answer some of the off-season’s unknowns, but not all of them. Here’s a list of some of the questions that remain and may be answered at Auto Club Speedway this week.
- Dale Earnhardt Jr won the Budweiser Shootout and one of the Gatorade Duals. Finishing ninth in the 500 wasn’t bad either. It was a nice week but Junior’s had strong plate track performances throughout his career. He’s also performed comparatively poorly at the flatter tracks, like California. The other Hendricks drivers have been good at these tracks historically. How will Junior stack up?
- Dodges finished in 6 of the top 8 spots at Daytona. Was it real or restrictor plate madness?
