Our friends at have plenty to say about the Carolina Dodge Dealers 400! They've got the scoop on what the heavens have in store for NASCAR's biggest stars. If you're a skeptic, check out their previous predictions:

Top contenders in the Carolina Dodge Dealers 400
Jeff Gordon: No. 24, born 8/4/1971 (Leo)
The planets suggest that Jeff is going to tame the Darlington track Sunday with a great mix of positive thought and commanding driving. Coming out of a week-long feeling that there's not much pleasure to be gained from grinding out training routines, Jeff is thinking minimalist, concentrating on doing the basic things well.
Rating: 4.5 out of 5
Sterling Marlin: No. 40, born 6/30/1957 (Cancer)
Sterling should dominate the track Sunday, feeling just about as relaxed as he ever gets. He's likely to be basking in the mental and physical changes that he's made and the positive effects these have on those around him. Perhaps it's time for him to take some time out to enjoy the benefits of the hard work he's been putting in.
Rating: 4.5 out of 5
Kevin Harvick: No. 29, born 12/8/1975 (Sagittarius)
This is likely to be a day when Kevin feels suppressed by events, feeling a powerful urge to escape into his own private fantasy. Fortunately, this fantasy world calls for performance and endurance, so he should fight his way to finish well, by the power of pure determination.
Rating: 4 out of 5
Bill Elliott: No. 88, born 11/8/1955 (Libra)
Bill's purposeful attitude in the race today is likely to result in a high-energy afternoon with plenty of position changes. An attempt at early domination is likely to be the theme of his race, and, although he might have to battle some confusion, tactically it's likely to pay off with him finishing in a good position.
Rating: 3 out of 5
Ryan Newman: No. 88, born 12/8/1977 (Sagittarius)
Ryan is likely to be pretty gung-ho today, reading the race intuitively and finishing well. Although it may seem that the race might get away from him in the early stages, a combination of thoughtful driving and just the right amount of friction helps him to make a good recovery.
Rating: 3 out of 5
Dale Jarrett: No. 88, born 11/26/1956 (Sagittarius)
Things may just not feel right for Dale. It's nothing he can put his finger on, but perhaps it's a feeling that the day is demanding effort in too many directions at once. Whatever it is, it's likely to result in his brain spinning but the gears not engaging.
Rating: 2 out of 5
Tony Stewart: No. 20, born 5/20/1971 (Taurus/Gemini Cusp)
The planets suggest that Tony is coming to Darlington with the right attitude Sunday. This is just as well, because as the race develops, he may feel that he's competing against the track as well as the other drivers. Coupled with feeling a bit disconnected, he may feel like he is fighting the many-headed Medusa.
Rating: 2 out of 5
Jeff Burton: No. 99, born 6/29/1967 (Cancer)
Jeff may find the repetition that he normally takes for granted a grind on Sunday. But he will push through any such resistance with the control of the professional athlete that he is. As good for his character as this may be, he may not place well because these efforts are likely to impair his performance.
Rating: 2 out of 5
Bobby Labonte: No. 18, born 5/8/1964 (Taurus)
The planets suggest that this will be a complex race for Bobby. With aggression playing the biggest role, he believes that it should be his race. It's the kind of day when he knows why he races for a living, but in the end, this over-confidence may be his undoing.
Rating: 2 out of 5
Ricky Rudd: No. 28, born 9/12/1956 (Virgo)
This is going to be a high-energy race for Ricky. He really feels like he relates to the day and the track, but he may be misreading things. As the race develops, this could become acutely apparent to him, resulting in a careless act or two and a general feeling that he's fighting an increasingly uphill battle.
Rating: 2 out of 5
Rusty Wallace: No. 2, born 8/14/1956 (Leo)
This might be a day when Rusty is too busy feeling good to have that competitive edge. He should find that even the hard stuff comes easy. The other news is that the planets may be stacked against him, so Sunday enjoying his effort may be his only reward.
Rating: 2 out of 5
Dale Earnhardt Jr.: No. 8, born 10/10/1974 (Libra)
Dale's mind and feet have been at odds with each other since Wednesday, since there seems to be too much energy for his body to cope with. He may also have a strong feeling that he's not aiming high enough. Perhaps it's time to start, if not by raising his goals, at least broadening them.
Rating: 1 out of 5
