Two Quick Predictions For Tomorrow

Formula One is at the historic, magnificent Spa circuit and The Chase for the Nextel Cup begins. Let's get after it:

Belgian Grand Prix at Spa-Francorchamps

You have to figure that morale is way down at McLaren this week after being fined a hundred million bucks and being disqualified from the constructors' championship in the aftermath of the McLaren/Ferrari industrial espionage case. Now they have to contend with Spa, the sort of classic, winding circuit with intense elevation changes that Ferraris have traditionally dominated. Watching Michael Schumacher effortlessly navigate Spa was always one of the high points of any given F1 season. His successors at The Scuderia will carry the day tomorrow.

1. Kimi Raikkonen - Ferrari
2. Felipe Massa - Ferrari
3. Fernando Alonso - McLaren

Sylvania 300 at New Hampshire International Speedway

The Chasers finally get serious tomorrow. And nobody gets serious like Tony Stewart.

2. Jimmie Johnson
3. Kurt Busch
