It looks like there are enough changes in the NASCAR Sprint Cup landscape to take a shot with a few long-shots for both the Bud Shootout and Daytona 500.
On Saturday, take a look at Joey Logano, Clint Bowyer, Dale Earmhardt Jr and Kyle Busch to win the race. Don't bet too much, because this race should be used as a barometer for next Sunday.
However, I will say, take Logano and Bowyer early for the Daytona 500 along with Brian Vickers and Martin Truex Jr. I liked them all in pre-season practice.
We'll figure the rest out next week.
