This week’s predictions: Coca-Cola 600
Tom Bowles, Editor-In-Chief: I’m going Kasey Kahne.
Amy Henderson, Senior Editor: I think I’ll go with Jimmie Johnson. While we haven’t seen much out of him at Charlotte yet, he probably has that golden horseshoe somewhere up his… sleeve.
Jeff Wolfe, Senior Writer: After complete and full evaluation of what took place during the All-Star Race at Charlotte Saturday night, I’m going with… Kevin Harvick.
Matt Stallknecht, Senior Editor: Kurt Busch.
Mark Howell, Senior Writer: I’m going with Dale Earnhardt Jr.
Joseph Wolkin, Senior Writer: I’m going with Jeff Gordon to win one more time.
Jeff Meyer, Senior Writer: Carl Edwards for me until he wins!
Tony Lumbis, Financial Manager: Denny Hamlin for the May Charlotte sweep.
Zach Catanzareti, Contributing Writer: Have to pick Busch.
Toni Montgomery, Senior Editor: Sign me up for Gordon also.
Huston Ladner, Senior Editor: Joey Logano.
Matt McLaughlin, Senior Writer: Going way out on a limb here with Harvick. If my picks are boring so’s the racing lately and at least it doesn’t take four hours to read them.
Brett Winningham, Contributing Writer: Going to go with Kyle Busch!
Aaron Bearden, Contributing Writer: Harvick. I know, I know, crazy pick.
Greg Davis, Senior Writer: Was going to go with Kes, but since he’s a new father today (and knowing first hand what that’s like the first week and not sleeping), I’m going to go with Hamlin.
Sean Fesko, Contributing Writer: Kurt Busch gets his second win of the season.
Vito Pugliese, Senior Writer: Brad Keselowski.
