The Likely Suspects: Road racing can be challenging for drivers who favor racing the ovals. Those drivers who have had open wheel race gain a clear advantage. NASCAR's road racing experts include Juan Pablo Montoya, Clint Bowyer, Marcos Ambrose, and Tony Stewart. Keep in mind that Jimmie Johnson, Jeff Gordon and Kevin Harvick also excel at road racing.

My 2 Cents: My first picks are Jimmie Johnson and Jeff Gordon, although I was seriously considering Tony Stewart and Kevin Harvick. Jimmie and Jeff have better records so they are my top pair. My no-brainer this week is Marcos Ambrose. I'm rounding out my team with Juan Pablo Montoya, Clint Bowyer and Greg Biffle, although Ryan Newman and A.J. Allmendinger are decent picks as well. My final picks are Brian Vickers and Aric Almirola although I was torn between Almirola and David Gilliland. Enjoy those twists and turns this week, as well as the race!
