Homestead Update #3

As of lap 200 I wanted to say a few things:

- Jimmie's going to win the championship... I'm not expecting anything to happen.  No one else is forcing the issue and the 48 seems to have some steam in reserve in case someone does make a move.  Kenseth and the Killer Bees have been good today but not spectacular.

- The race here is awesome.  Dale Jr. has been running the high line better than almost anyone (Kyle Busch and David Gilliland tried and failed) but his teammate could pull off the win.  Truex has run great today.

- Maybe it's just me, but the top 10 at these races here at the end of the year are peppered by names you wouldn't expect to see.  Gilliland ran great until smacking the wall, he was in the top 5 all day.  Elliott Sadler currently leads the field thanks to nearly everyone in the field playing some sort of pit strategy.  Joe Nemechek is in the top 5 in his final race with the 01. 

- I think DEI has an excellent chance of winning today along with Biffle, Kahne, or Riggs.  Everyone has to make one more stop and I hope that it happens under green.

Well, nevermind... caution out after Mike Bliss' engine expires and the field can make it from here.  Kenseth takes 2 tires, Hamlin with 2 tires, order out is Kahne, Riggs, Kenseth, Biffle, Hamlin, Harvick, Dale Jr. Sadler, Johnson, J. Burton.  Looks like nearly everyone took 2 with a few guys taking 4.  59 to go.
