Kiara's 2010 Championship Picks

Here at Skirts and Scuffs we have opinions. That's what happens when you get a bunch of female race fans together. We understand the Chase is months away, but still we thought it would be fun if our panel of writers made their predictions for the 2010 Champions before the season begins.

Today Kiara shares her predictions for 2010. Let her know what you think of her picks in the comments below.

Sprint Cup Series: DENNY HAMLIN

I choose Denny Hamlin because of his capability of being the driver that can beat Jimmie Johnson! He is one of the only drivers that can contend with Jimmie. Denny's talent has grown so much in the past couple of years. There is a newfound confidence in his voice and the way he races. Denny proved in the 2009 season that he will be one of the drivers to beat. I believe that Joe Gibbs Racing is going to be a force to be reckoned with in the 2010 season. JGR is going to be the organization to beat. Mark My Words!

Nationwide Series: KYLE BUSCH

Yes, he is the reigning NASCAR Nationwide Series champion and has not put out that he will be competing the whole 2010 NNS season. Kyle is talking to Joe and J.D. Gibbs about racing in the #18 Z-Line/NOS Energy Drink Toyota Camry for the whole season. I hope he does because Kyle is just amazing. Weekend after weekend he has been the man to beat! Kyle is an amazing racecar driver with so much talent. Everytime he wins it's like more and more confidence is added under his belt and more experience. Kyle will be a Sprint Cup Series champion one day! Kyle is the future of the sport, and the future looks bright :) If circumstances don't go my way, which they might not... My other pick would have to be Carl Edwards. Carl is the last driver to win the championship when it was called the NASCAR Busch Series in 2007. He has proven that he can regain that championship again and will be one of the drivers to beat in the 2010 NASCAR Nationwide Series season.

Camping World Truck Series: RON HORNADAY JR.

With the loss of Rick Ren for Ron Hornaday Jr., it's going to be exciting to see who can step up to the plate and challenge Ron. Or it could be easy for the competition because of Rick moving to Kyle Busch Motorsports as the director of competition. As a Kyle Busch fan, I must say it could be a driver from KBM. Taylor Malsam has a very, very bright future ahead of him. With Kyle at his side, he is going to be learning so much and gaining experience under his belt. Also, Matt Crafton. He finished 2nd in the 2010 CWTS points. I will stick with my gut and say Ron Hornaday Jr. There are so many drivers that could be the 2010 Camping World Truck Series champion. We will just have to sit back and watch!

I picked these drivers because all of them have made an impression on me. Yes, I could have said that Kyle is going to win the Sprint Cup championship but Denny Hamlin was a fan favorite after we saw that he could beat Jimmie Johnson. In my opinion, Denny is more consistent then Kyle and is in the position to become the 2010 Sprint Cup champion. It may break my heart to say that but its the truth. Kyle will be a Cup champion one day and I can't wait til that day to come!
