Michael Waltrip and Mark Martin, NASCAR, never, although Martin made the "playoffs" last year and has a few runner-ups in the title chase.
Macro, we have all the same favorites, except instead of Mark Martin in NASCAR, I like Jeremy Mayfield, also from Owensboro, KY, like the Waltrips. I mainly pull for Mayfield and his teammate, Kasey Kahne. Mayfield made the "playoffs" last year also, and he led the points for a pretty good chunk of the season in 1998 when he was in the 12 car, but hadn't done anything between then and making the Chase last year. Things are looking up in all other sports though, Reds, Bengals, UK basketball should be stronger, losing just two from a mostly inexperienced Elite Eight team. Walker is back in Boston and they're in the playoff hunt at least... well, then there's UK football. Don't know what we'll ever do with that.
