The Likely Suspects: As we enter Chase race #2 one driver, last week's winner Brad Keselowski, has secured his spot in the next round, leaving 11 spots waiting to be filled. Traditionally the following drivers have performed well at New Hampshire. We'll have to see if that continues to hold true as the pressure of the playoff heats up. They are Chase drivers Jeff Gordon, Jimmie Johnson, Ryan Newman (currently on the bubble at 13th), Brad Keselowski and Denny Hamlin. Non-Chase drivers who run well at "The Magic Mile" include Clint Bowyer and Jamie McMurray.

My 2 Cents: Many of the same drivers who ran well last week, including Keselowski and Gordon, also run well at New Hampshire. When making final picks this week think top 10, Chevy and Ford and Hendrick Motorsports and Roush Fenway.

Jeff Gordon ranks #1 for my no-brainer pick this week, closely followed by a three-way tie between Ryan Newman, Jimmie Johnson and Brad Keselowski. I will round out my team with Carl Edwards, Denny Hamlin, Danica Patrick and Austin Dillon. If you have any Kyle Larson starts left pull Danica and go with Larson and Dillon.
