The Likely Suspects: Short-tracking on a Saturday night will provide both exciting moments for the fans and stressful moments for the drivers who can loop this track in 17 seconds. This is a great track for both the patient drivers as well as the wild ones. When we get to the finish look for these drivers: Jimmie Johnson, Kyle Busch, Matt Kenseth, Ryan Newman, Jamie McMurray, Clint Bowyer, Kurt Busch and Kasey Kahne.

My 2 Cents: My no-brainer pick this week is the calm, cool and collected Matt Kenseth. My next choice is Brad Keselowski. Jeff Gordon should also be a good pick, however I just don't trust him to finish well despite good past performances. If you have Busch brothers choose them both this week. I only have Kurt Busch starts left, so I'm picking him. I will round out my team with Ryan Newman, Dale Earnhardt Jr., Greg Biffle, Ricky Stenhouse Jr. and Casey Mears. Enjoy the race!
