Can Johnson dodge a bullet at 'Dega ??

The NASCAR Sprint Cup Series visits Talladega this weekend for the Amp Energy 500. Jimmie Johnson heads into the race with a 118 point lead over Mark Martin in the Chase for the Championship. Odds are if Johnson stays out of trouble at 'Dega, he will win his fourth straight championship.

Gonna make a prediction here - Johnson will play it safe the first half of the race and lay back to stay out of the bumping and 3 and 4-wide racing. However, during the second half of the race, he will start working his way forward and WILL get caught up in a multi-car wreck and finish poorly. This will open the door for Mark Martin to get back into the title hunt. Also, Tony Stewart's Chase luck will change. He'll get a top 5 and be right back in the hunt, too. Think I'm right ?? Or, do you I'm nuts and Johnson will escape 'Dega's "big one" and basically wrap up his fourth straight title ?? Or, could Dale Earnhardt, Jr. finally get his act together and win one ?? Watch and see on Sunday at noon EST on ABC.
