One Quick Prediction For Tonight

Meijer Indy 300 at Kentucky Speedway

1. Tony Kanaan
2. Dario Franchitti
3. Dan Wheldon

I don't know that there's a better driver in open-wheel racing than Tony Kanaan when it comes to running away and hiding from the pole, with TK on the point tonight, it's hard to pick against him. Almost as hard as it is to pick a one-two finish for Andretti Green Racing in light of the way that entire team has piled on Dan Wheldon in the aftermath of last week's big wreck. Dario, maybe the cleanest driver in the IRL, is largely innocent in all of this but his AGR teammates, TK and Danica Patrick, are two of the worst offenders when it comes to the "pushing" they accuse Wheldon of. Sure, Wheldon did attempt to push Dario up the track. And you know what? If Dario had moved over and Dan had gone on to win the race, we'd all be talking about what a sensational racing move it was. It'll be fun to watch when these guys inevitably end up next to each other again tonight.
