Have you ever had a hunch? Webster’s dictionary defines hunch as, "a strong intuitive feeling, especially concerning a future event or result." Well, this week, folks, I have a hunch! Atlanta is the fastest track on the NASCAR circuit. Joe Gibbs Racing used to own this place, with Bobby Labonte so tough in the past. So I have a hunch that I know who the winner will be. Perhaps I should put some money where my hunch is, since this guy is likely to pay a handsome price in Vegas! (Or as a proposition bet at WagerNASCAR.com perhaps?)
O.K., folks, this is far from a lock, but I have your winner this week. Put your hard earned dough on Denny Hamlin to win his first career Nextel Cup race.
