The Likely Suspects: Pick the pole winner this week and chances are you will also be picking the race  winner. These Martinsville elite drivers should be on your radar this week: Jimmie Johnson, Jeff Gordon, Denny Hamlin, Kevin Harvick, Brad Keselowski, Kyle Busch, Dale Earnhardt Jr. and Ryan Newman.

My 2 Cents: The major no-brainer pick this week is a tie between Jimmie Johnson and Jeff Gordon.  My next picks are Ryan Newman, Denny Hamlin, Tony Stewart and Greg Biffle. If you have any Brad Keselowski starts left pick him instead of Tony Stewart. I will complete my team with Danica Patrick and Justin Allgaier. Enjoy the race!
