Showdown - May 21, 2011 - Charlotte Motor Speedway Race Talk
Well folks, I believe Joey will need to win or finish 2nd Saturday as we all know Junior nation will win the fan vote. I know Joey is very good there so I feel like he has a chance. Lets hope he and the team can get it done as I think a non points race can be some great medicine. What's everyones thoughts on the race?

RE: Showdown
Well with all the contending drivers i see Joey finishing now worse then 9th if he has a clean run and that's if People like Ambrose,Ragan,Menard etc beat him. Realistically his competition should be Junior,Truex,Burton. Lets not forget this is one of Joey's best tracks scoring an 8th place in 2009's all star race and a couple top 5's already in the coke 600. What i'm wondering is what happens if Joey finishes third in the showdown and Junior wins or finishes 2nd then wins the fan vote, does that mean Joey gets in or would they go with one less driver?

If Junior wins or finishes 2nd then the next highest vote getter gets in.

engine is being replaced. has to start last. this isn't good with the amount of laps he'll have to work with. hopefully jr. races in and joey could win the vote.

I think if Aj and Jr finish 1-2 then there is a really good chance Joey can win the vote.

Top 5 in ALLSTAR VOTES (NOT IN ORDER) #43-A.J. Allmendinger, #88-Dale Earnhardt Jr., #47-Bobby Labonte, #20-Joey Logano #83-Brian Vickers.

Vote all day folks. I think we need the fan vote. That means we need Junior to win or finish 2nd. I don't think we have enough time to come from the back unless a caution comes and we stay out and front runners pit

he'll have to pass 27 cars in 40 laps. not sure if drivers can go 40 laps on a tank of gas. pit strategy may be very interesting to watch near the end.

There will b a caution. Strategy will come into play. If he has a balanced car he needs to stay out

Automatic caution at lap 20. With what we have seen with the tires not falling off the last 2 weeks he needs to stay out. I know it depends on how many cars he passes in 20 laps but I think it's stay out regardless and let the clean air be his friend. These tires will hold I believe.

Disappointing but they said they learned a lot for the 600 which is a points race. So I am putting it behind me and looking forward to next weekend. I will be there. yay. I love the All Star Race though. Bummed is not the word. Crying
