The Likely Suspects: The Irish Hills are an oasis for these elite drivers: Carl Edwards, Tony Stewart, Greg Biffle, Clint Bowyer, Matt Kenseth and Joey Logano.

My 2 Cents: When picking this week think Ford, Chevy, and Roush. My no-brainer pick this week is a three-way tie between Carl Edwards, Matt Kenseth and Joey Logano. My next picks are Clint Bowyer, Greg Biffle and Tony Stewart. I will complete my team with Juan Pablo Montoya and Austin Dillon. Juan Pablo Montoya will be racing the  No. 12 car for Team Penske this weekend. Montoya has 14 career starts at MIS with three top-10 finishes.
