The Likely Suspects: Always exciting for the fans and challenging for many drivers, "The Monster Mile" is a favorite among the drivers who know how to tame the beast. These elite drivers include Jimmie Johnson, Matt Kenseth, Mark Martin, Jeff Burton, Carl Edwards and Greg Biffle.

My 2 Cents: This week there is a three-way tie for the no-brainer pick: Jimmie Johnson, Mark Martin and Matt Kenseth. My next picks are Ryan Newman, Martin Truex, Jr. and Dale Earnhardt, Jr. I'm rounding out my team with Sam Hornish, Jr. and Aric Almirola. Note: If I had any Greg Biffle starts left I would swap out Ryan Newman and put Biffle in. Jeff Gordon and Kyle Busch are also worthy of consideration. Good luck with your team and enjoy the race!
