Racing Tonight: CTS Chevy Silverado HD 250

The Craftsman Truck Series officially kicks of their 2007 season tonight under the lights in Daytona in the Chevy Silverado HD 250.  Here is what you need to know for the race:

Starting lineup: NASCAR.COM
Broadcast: Starting at 7:30 on SPEED
Notes:
- 9 Toyotas and 4 Fords make up the first 13 positions in the field.  As yours truly has said repeatedly, these will be the two dominant brands in 2007.  The first Chevy is Cale Gale in 14th.  Chase Miller's Dodge is 15th.
- All 3 Roush Fords are in the top 5 with Carl Edwards 2nd, Travis Kvapil 4th, and Erik Darnell 5th.
- I wasn't aware of this until recently, but the #16 Xpress Motorsports team has switched to Ford.  Stacy Compton will drive the truck tonight.
- My predicted winner for tonight: Travis Kvapil.  K&N Bearings came on board at the last minute, can Kvapil give them a victory?  If not Kvapil, I would look at Sprague or Johnny Benson.
