NASCAR Speed Freaks: Is there another Michael McDowell waiting to pounce at Talladega?
It was Michael McDowell at Daytona; who can shock us at Talladega?
KEN'S CALL: Ryan Preece always finds the leaders at Talladega, so he's as good as anyone to pick for a shocker, which probably shouldn't be a shock at a "plate race."
DEAN'S DIRT: The No. 99 car has plenty of history at this place, so don't sleep on Daniel Suarez.
Crossing the first-quarter mark of the schedule, who are you most worried about?
KEN'S CALL: Several teams are off their expected pace, but I'm most disappointed in Ross Chastain in the 42 car. Zero laps led, 24th in points. Did they lose a cylinder?
DEAN'S DIRT: He finally put together a good day at Richmond, but Aric Almirola is already in must-win territory.
