Roush Fenway Racing's 2009 Super Bowl Picks

Concord, N.C. (January 26, 2009) - As the Arizona Cardinals and Pittsburgh Steelers prepare to battle in Tampa Bay, Fla. in the 43rd annual Super Bowl, a few Roush Fenway Racing drivers made their picks for who they think will be the 2009 Super Bowl champion:

David Ragan, driver No. 6 UPS Ford (Sprint Cup Series)

"I’m going to pick Arizona by 10. Arizona has been on a roll and I have a good feeling about them."

Matt Kenseth, driver No. 17 DEWALT Ford (Sprint Cup Series)

"I'm going with the Cardinals. Everyone is overlooking them, but I think it's going to be a close game. They may not have gotten the respect, but they have the big wins to prove they belong there and I'm looking forward to a great football game."

Erik Darnell, driver No. 6 Northern Tool + Equipment Ford (Nationwide Series)

"I’m picking the Steelers. Even though the Cardinals have an explosive offense, the Steelers ‘D’ is just way too tough. They have too many weapons on the defensive side of the ball."

Ricky Stenhouse, Jr., driver No. 16 CitiFinancial Ford (Nationwide Series)

"I’m picking Pittsburgh by 17. Their defense is stout and they have some top-notch receivers to compliment a strong offense. I also think as far as post-season experience goes, Pittsburgh has the advantage."

Colin Braun, driver No. 6 Con-way Freight F-150 (Camping World Truck Series)

"I don't know if they will win, but I'm going to be rooting for Arizona. They are going into the game as the underdog and I always like to root for the underdog. And since my Cowboys didn't have that great of a season I'd like to see an upset."
