All with 5 - Matt Kenseth, Kevin Harvick, Carl Edwards and Kasey Kahne

Recent Pole Winners:
2013 Joey Logano

The Likely Suspects: With only four races to go until the Chase, drivers without a win will definitely be making some daring moves in the next few weeks. Among the drivers to keep an eye on this weekend are four who are winless and perform well in the Irish Hills: Clint Bowyer, Kasey Kahne, Greg Biffle and Matt Kenseth. Other Michigan greats include Joey Logano and Carl Edwards.

My 2 Cents: When making your picks this week, think Roush Fenway, Fords then Chevys. My "no brainer" pick is a four-way tie among Clint Bowyer, Matt Kenseth, Greg Biffle and Joey Logano. 
My next picks are Carl Edwards and Ryan Newman. I will round out my team with Austin Dillon and Trevor Bayne. Tony Stewart will not be racing this weekend.

Enjoy the race! Post your comments here or email me at ssfantasyracing@skirtsandscuffs.com.
