Dale Earnhardt Jr. at +500 odds, winner of last years Budweiser Shootout, is expected to give Busch a strong push in the highly lucrative race. Other than Earnhardt, Hendrick Motorsports also has strong cars with former champion Jeff Gordon (+700) and 2008 Sprint Cup points champion at Jimmie Johnson also at +700.

The Budweiser shootout is traditionally held the weekend previous to the Daytona 500. In what began as the 'Busch Clash'and was a 50-mile race. The format has now been altered to a dual segment race that includes a 25-lap sprint opening race followed by a 50 lap all out sprint. A ten minute intermission seperates the two segments. The race is similar to the Sprint All-Star Race held at Lowe's Motor Speedway in Charlotte, N.C.

The field, by invitation only, consists of 28 cars coming from the top six teams of each manufacturer from 2008 and four wild-card entrants. The starting lineup is determined by a random draw, not by qualifying as points races are determined.
