The Likely Suspects: I've always liked racing at Texas mainly because there is a predictable group of elite drivers. Put these Texas greats on your roster and you will score big: Jimmie Johnson, Matt Kenseth,  Dale Earnhardt Jr., Carl Edwards and Martin Truex Jr.  

My 2 Cents: Matt Kenseth is the king of the no-brainer pick for Texas. Jimmie Johnson is also a good pick but I am benching him this week. I will round out my team with Dale Earnhardt Jr., Carl Edwards, Denny Hamlin, Ryan Newman, Martin Truex Jr., Trevor Bayne and Kyle Larson. In the normal year, Greg Biffle would also be a good pick, but his lack of consistency makes him too risky for my team.  

Enjoy the race! Post your comments here or email me at
