My formula of voting for the underdog demands that I root for David Gilliand this weekend. Or Derrick Cope.
I'm a realist, so I'll go with the former.
If this kid wins a cup race the same year he had his Cinderella story in the Busch series, it will be chaos. Awesome chaos that will assure him a long and lucrative career.
PS: It will also be interesting to see if the "curse of the Talladega tumble" can be attributed to driver Elliott Sadler (now in the 19) or the 38 M&M's car. This is a very scientific experiment, where the two factors have been separated out to examine the source.
