The Likely Suspects: Bristol short track racing isn't for the faint of heart. To succeed drivers need to be powerfully patient or downright crazy. The following drivers make the Bristol elite list: Matt Kenseth, Kyle Busch, Greg Biffle, Jimmie Johnson, and Brad Keselowski.
My 2 Cents: My no-brainer pick this week is Brad Keselowski. Matt Kenseth and Kyle Busch run a close second for dual no-brainers, and I'm hoping that Ryan Newman earns me some qualifying points. I will round out my team with the Jrs. - Dale Earnhardt Jr. and Martin Truex Jr. - and AJ Allmendinger and Casey Mears.
