The Likely Suspects: This year the season-ending championship chatter will be minus some notable names, and we will be crowning a first-time champion. Interestingly enough one of our final-four -- Kevin Harvick -- happens to be pretty stellar here at Homestead. Who else shines at Homestead? Looks for these drivers to run well on Sunday: Martin Truex Jr., Matt Kenseth, Clint Bowyer, Jeff Gordon and Joey Logano.
My 2 Cents: My no-brainer pick this week is a tie between Kevin Harvick and Matt Kenseth. Jeff Gordon is also a fine choice. This next group is tough for me because all the drivers I want to choose, with the exception of Martin Truex Jr., I can't pick - no starts left! If you got'em, use 'em: Joey Logano and Ryan Newman. In addition to Martin Truex Jr., I am going with Aric Almirola, Greg Biffle and A.J. Allmendinger. I will complete my team with Danica Patrick and Trevor Bayne.
Enjoy the race. It will definitely be a memorable one, a fitting end to a history-making season. Post your comments here or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
