The Likely Suspects: In addition to the hometown boy Tony Stewart, several drivers run particularly well at Indy. The include: Greg Biffle, Jeff Gordon, Mark Martin, Jamie McMurray, and Matt Kenseth.

My 2 Cents: The no-brainer pick this week is, of course, the Indiana native Tony Stewart, followed closely by Jimmie Johnson and Mark Martin. Kasey Kahne should finish well and may get me qualifying points so I'm giving him the nod. Clint Bowyer, Greg Biffle, Bobby Labonte and Sam Hornish will round out my team. It is important to note that since Jeff Gordon does have an excellent record at this track and this race you may want to test your comfort level for the pick. Perhaps his dark cloud will fade this weekend.
