If the Bullring stars drove NASCAR … who would they be?

Tony Stewart ... Tony Dunker?

If our drivers at the Bullring were part of the NASCAR scene, what Sprint Cup and Nationwide Series stars might they be? Here are a few ideas … (and, yes, I’ll be anxious to hear yours, too):  

Denny Woodworth: Ryan Newman. (Newman, with an engineering degree, is always regarded as the smartest guy in the NASCAR pits. And D.W. is the only lawyer I know of that races at 8000 Broadway.)
Justin Reed: Kevin Harvick. (Justin, like Harvick, is not afraid to apply the chrome horn when needed.)
Bobby Anders: Kyle Busch. (OK, Kyle Busch from a couple of years ago when he was a bit more “Rowdy”.)
Steve Carlin: Jimmy Spenceer. (Spencer no longer races, but can be seen each week on the Speed Channel. I think Jimmy and Steve were separated at birth.)
Tony Dunker: Tony Stewart. (Same black cars. Both have a “4” on the side — I know, Stewart has a “1”, too). Both have the same … ummm, temperaments.)
Michael Long: Jimmie Johnson. (Does this really need any explanation?)
Lonnie Bailey: Mark Martin. (The quiet veteran.)
Steven DeLonjay: Joey Logano. (Both on the fast track to success.)
Justin Jennings, Jake Griffin, James Leffew: Justin Allgaier. (Ditto)
Vance Wilson: Dale Earnhardt Jr. (Both are likable, good ole boys) 

Juan Pablo Montoya ... Jim Powell?

Keith Pratt: Carl Edwards. (Carl does that flip after he wins a race, Keith does that flip between turns one and two.)
Mark Burgtorf: Jeff Gordon. (Gordon became the face of NASCAR in the 1990s and early 2000. Same with Burgtorf at Quincy Raceways during the same period.)
Terry Gallaher: Michael Waltrip. (They both pick and choose what races they want to run at this point in their careers.)
Dave Wietholder: Denny Hamlin. (Similar driving styles, similar outlooks and both come across as soft spoken — until they get behind the wheel.)
Terry Houston: Clint Bowyer. (Both are quiet guys from the country who do nothing but run up front.)
Jim Powell: Juan Pablo Montoya. (Both have been known to have anger issues, and both say they have now turned over a new leaf.)
Jerry Jansen: Kurt Busch. (At the end of most races, both tend to surprise by being found near the top of the leaderboard and points standings.)
Shawn Deering: Matt Kenseth. (Both are quiet, unassuming and don’t command much attention — until they always wind up in the top five.)
