Likely Suspects: This race should separate the Chase contenders from the pretenders. At the closing laps of the Bank America 500, look for these drivers to be racing hard for the win: Kyle Busch, Matt Kenseth, Jimmie Johnson, Joey Logano, Kasey Kahne, non-Chaser Denny Hamlin, Greg Biffle and Kevin Harvick.
My 2 Cents: My no-brainer pick is actually a three-way tie this week: Kyle Busch, Joey Logano and Matt Kenseth. If you have them, pick them. I don't have any Kyle Busch starts left so I am going with Marcos Ambrose. I'm teaming Ambrose, Logano and Kenseth with: Carl Edwards, Greg Biffle, Kasey Kahne, Ricky Stenhouse, Jr. and Casey Mears.
