The Likely Suspects: This elite group of drivers are quickly becoming favorites at Kentucky: Jimmie Johnson, Matt Kenseth, Jeff Gordon, Kyle Busch, Kurt Busch, Martin Truex Jr., Brad Keselowski and Kevin Harvick. 

My 2 Cents: My no-brainer pick this week is a tie between Jimmie Johnson and Mat Kenseth. I will round out my team with Brad Keselowski, Martin Truex Jr., Denny Hamlin, Carl Edwards, Danica Patrick and Austin Dillon.
