This week’s predictions: Kobalt 400
Tom Bowles, Editor-In-Chief: I’m going with Dale Earnhardt, Jr.
Amy Henderson, Managing Editor: I’ll take Jimmie Johnson for back-to-back wins.
Jeff Wolfe, Senior Writer: Kevin Harvick – I’m going to keep picking him until he wins, which I think will happen this week.
Matt Stallknecht, Senior Editor: I’ll draft Mr. Kevin Harvick, please.
Mark Howell, Senior Writer: It’s time for a breakthrough! My choice is Kyle Larson.
Joseph Wolkin, Senior Writer: I’m going with Denny Hamlin.
Aaron Bearden, Contributing Writer: I’ll take ya boy Carl Edwards.
Greg Davis, Senior Writer: I’m going with Brad Keselowski this week.
Vito Pugliese, Senior Writer: Dale Earnhardt, Jr.
Danny Peters, Senior Writer: I’m going with Junior.
Sean Fesko, Contributing Writer: Jimmie Johnson. He won last week, he’s won at Vegas before, and I think Hendrick has this new package figured out.
Brett Winningham, Contributing Writer: Kevin Harvick.
Jeff Meyer, Senior Writer: Hope it’s not too late for my pick of Harvick on Sunday!
Tony Lumbis, Financial Manager: Joey Logano gets his second of the year.
Zach Catanzareti, Contributing Writer: Matt da Brat Kenseth
Toni Montgomery, Senior Editor: Carl Edwards for me this week.
Clayton Caldwell, Contributing Writer: Brad K.
Huston Ladner, Senior Editor: Kenseth.
Mike Neff, Short Track Coordinator: Put me down for Dale Jr. please.
Phil Allaway, Senior Editor: Kasey Kahne.
Matt McLaughlin, Senior Writer: Jeff Gordon; he needs to turn around a dismal start to the season and it’s not like the Roush cars, normally strong at Vegas, can even get out of their own way to date.
