The Likely Suspects: This season finale will crown a champion and end an eventful and highly competitive season. We can expect Jimmie Johnson and Matt Kenseth to rack up as many points as possible during the race. However, look at these drivers to race for the win: Kevin Harvick, Martin Truex Jr., Jeff Gordon, Carl Edwards and Clint Bowyer.
My 2 Cents: My no-brainer pick this week is a tie between Matt Kenseth and Jimmie Johnson. If you got'em, use 'em. I don't, so I'm going with Kevin Harvick and Jeff Gordon. Clint Bowyer is also a decent pick here at Homestead. My next picks are: Ryan Newman, Carl Edwards, Jamie McMurray and Aric Almirola. If you have Martin Truex Jr. starts left, I'd put him in and pull Jamie McMurray. Joey Logano is also worth consideration here.
I will complete my team with A.J. Allmendinger and Trevor Bayne. Enjoy the race. It should be an interesting finale. Post your comments here or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
