The Likely Suspects:  New Hampshire Motor Speedway is a racetrack with an identity crisis. Although it is a flat intermediate track, it races much like a short track. Racing wise, its twin would be Phoenix International Raceway. The likely suspects will be: Jimmie Johnson, Jeff Gordon, Brad Keselowski, Kevin Harvick, Ryan Newman, Dale Earnhardt Jr. and Clint Bowyer.

My 2 Cents:  My no-brainer pick this week is a three-way tie among Jimmie Johnson, Jeff Gordon and Brad Keselowski. My next picks are Denny Hamlin, Ryan Newman and Joey Logano. I'm rounding out my team with Jeff Burton, who will be racing the No. 66 car this week, and Austin Dillon.
