The driver values have all been changed and the slate completely cleaned as we begin the second segment of the 2013 ESPN Stock Car Challenge, which will last 15 races, beginning with Charlotte and ending with the final event of the Sprint Cup Series regular season in September at Richmond.
First up is this Sunday's marathon known as the Coca-Cola 600. Seven times the driver who won the Sprint All-Star race went on to win NASCAR's longest test of man and machine. Jimmie Johnson (22.2) certainly has the potential to up that number to eight, but teammate Kasey Kahne (21.3) is my favorite. He's this race's defending winner and has gone to Victory Lane at Charlotte on four occasions, including three times in the 600.

Joe Gibbs Racing teammate Kyle Busch (21.2) looked very strong in the All-Star event and has a shot to win at Charlotte again, as does Clint Bowyer (21.5), who grabbed the checkered flag last fall.
