The 2021 NASCAR Cup Series has come to an end with FOUR predictions, posted prior to the start of the season, proven to be true.

Each of the four correct predictions is eligible to be considered as the most bold prediction of the year.

The decision as to which one is the MOST BOLD is up to you.

Each member of the board can vote only one time but a vote can be changed until the voting window closes.

Voting closes after one week.

The entire list of predictions is as follows:

Note: The following is not a compensated endorsement.

The 2021 season certainly presented many challenges to Kyle Larson, being that it was his first year with HMS and followed a partial year suspension.

imo, it would have been bold if one had predicted before the season started that Larson would win more than just a couple of races.

To have predicted that he would win the Cup championship ?

gets my vote

Because in the opinion of game management, the prediction implies that Harvick would win one race . . . . but no more than one.
With all due respect to game management, to me "no more than one race" does not exclude the possibility of the respective driver winning less than one race.
Unfortunately I was unable to find a precedent in the previous editions of this game.
If I was @Efisher131 I'd take it to the supreme court.

Should a Vegas summit meeting be held with a huge press conference. Along with follow up stories about the strippers, and details that's just to juicy to stay in Vegas. Kinds of stuff that could have even been considered to be bribes.

If I thought it was the boldest prediction, I might fight it. But I think saying Larson would win the championship before he had ever sat in a Hendrick car is a whole lot bolder

Regardless of the vote score I am just thankful to have helped Kyle Larson win it all this year.

It takes a team to win it all and I knew that picking him would give him the confidence to win it all. He just needed a major player to believe in him and I was happy to let him know that Greg Nation was on board along my partners at the Cooter Johnsons Juniors The III and Dingleberries Racing Motorsports Engineering Enterprises Associates Alliance Non-Incorporated Foundation Project plus some morale support from the Mechanical Sheep Parts Engineering Institute.

It is about giving back, caring, and compassion. So I will pray for the mentally afflicted that ain't smart enough to know my pick was the very best. I am not sure how they can make it in life with such a dysfunctional level of intelligence. I just hope life isn't to hard on them.
