The Likely Suspects: Kansas Speedway is debuting its new repave, but I seriously doubt that it will greatly effect those drivers who traditionally perform well here. These drivers include: Brad Keselowski; Jimmie Johnson; Denny Hamlin; Greg Biffle; Jeff Gordon; Matt Kenseth; Carl Edwards; and Tony Stewart.

My 2 Cents: When picking this week think Hendrick Motorsports and Roush Fenway Racing. My no-brainer pick this week is a tie: Jimmie Johnson and Brad Keselowski. Denny Hamlin is also a great choice, but I think from here on to the final race in Homestead it just may very well be the Jimmie/Brad show. My next picks are: Kasey Kahne; Mark Martin; Kurt Busch; and Paul Menard.

If you have Greg Biffle or Clint Bowyer starts left I would play them and pull Busch and Menard. I was tempted to go with A.J. Allmendinger because he has run very well at Kansas. I just don't have the confidence yet in his equipment and chemistry with his new team.

I will complete my team with Aric Almirola and Sam Hornish, Jr.
