Today’s edition of NASCAR AMERICA touched on several topics, including who will be the “Darling of Darlington” in Saturday night’s Bojangles’ Southern 500 NASCAR Sprint Cup race.

The NASCAR America guys give their picks on who they think will win at legendary Darlington Raceway. With seven different winners — and seven different No. 1 qualifiers — in the first seven races, will NASCAR go eight-for-eight at the big D?

Frank Stoddard gives his pick for the winner in this weekend’s race. Will it be Jimmie Johnson, the six-time defending Sprint Cup champ and three-time Darlington winner (who surprisingly is still winless in the 2014 season)?

Last but not least, NASCAR AMERICA analyst Jeff Burton gives his opinion on how many race winners there will be this season.
