The Likely Suspects: Indy is an iconic track that is equally loved by the fans and the drivers. The real question this week isn't who will run well, but will Tony Stewart start his summer surge? Stewart is embraced as the local favorite at Indy, but he will share the spotlight with these drivers who run well at IMS: Jimmie Johnson; Jeff Gordon; Greg Biffle; Kyle Busch; Ryan Newman; and Paul Menard.
My 2 Cents: My no-brainer pick this week is a tie between Tony Stewart and Jimmie Johnson. My next picks are Greg Biffle, Jeff Gordon, Paul Menard, and Ryan Newman, I will complete my team with Juan Pablo Montoya who is making his second and final appearance in the Sprint Cup Series this season, and Kyle Larson.
