The Likely Suspects: Traditionally Hendrick Motorsports and Roush Fenway Racing dominate this track, so if you aren't sure who to pick this week you can arbitrarily pick from these two teams and you should do well. Think flat track masters like Jimmie Johnson, Denny Hamlin, Jeff Gordon, and Carl Edwards.

My 2 Cents: The no-brainer picks from here in are going to be Jimmie Johnson and Brad Keselowski. These drivers will probably take the gloves off this week so it should be interesting. Since I do not have any more Jimmie Johnson starts left I am going with Jeff Gordon. I will finish off my team with Martin Truex Jr., Ryan Newman, Joey Logano, Marcos Ambrose, Sam Hornish Jr., and Bobby Labonte. If you have any Clint Bowyer and Mark Martin starts left pull Marcos and Joey, and of course, enjoy the race!
