Comments: NASCAR Picks for Darlington

Heading into last weekend's race at Talladega, fantasy owners knew there was a good chance things would get ugly; thanks to Kyle Busch, it didn't take long. An ill-advised bump to the rear bumper of Kasey Kahne triggered a massive wreck that leveled more than a dozen cars, including several big names. It only got worse from there, and by the time the checkered flag was in the air, everybody not named David Ragan was probably already looking forward to Saturday night's race at Darlington Raceway.

The track has reached Apollo Creed status when it comes to nicknames and has been called everything from "The Lady in Black" and "The Track Too Tough to Tame" to NASCAR's oldest superspeedway. In recent years, the track's sandpaper-like surface has been smoothed out, but the unique egg-shaped layout and two drastically different corners remain. Overall, Darlington is one of the trickier tracks on the schedule, but after last weekend's carnage, I don't think anyone is complaining about the change of scenery.
