Interesting topic this morning.

My 2 favorite drivers back in the early 2000's was Mark Martin by a country mile, and a distant second was Johnny Benson. Enter Rockingham 2002 where the final 40 laps is a nose to tail deul between Johnny Benson who was going for his first win, and Mark Martin who was going for the championship. Do I root for my favorite driver who needs the 5 points, or the underdog Benson who had tried to get his first win for years. At that time I was pissed Benson beat Mark, but in hindsight Im pleased because it gave Johnny that win that had eluded him.
