This week’s predictions: FedEx 400 Benefiting Autism Speaks

Tom Bowles, Editor-In-Chief: Martin Truex Jr.
Amy Henderson, Senior Editor:
Jimmie Johnson. Because I have not jinxed him enough this year. I’m almost sorry for everyone else who picked him this week. Almost. But not quite.
Jeff Wolfe, Senior Writer:
Only pick here is Johnson.
Matt Stallknecht, Senior Editor: Johnson.
Mark Howell, Senior Writer: This the week when Truex Jr. finally visits Victory Lane. It’s time!
Joseph Wolkin, Senior Writer: Johnson.
Jeff Meyer, Senior Writer:
Carl Edwards and Darian Grubb now that they have broken the ice.
Tony Lumbis, Financial Manager:
Truex Jr.
Zach Catanzareti, Contributing Writer: Matt Kenseth.
Toni Montgomery, Senior Editor:
Kenseth.
Huston Ladner, Senior Editor:
Brad Keselowski.
Matt McLaughlin, Senior Writer: Statistically, the smart money would be on No. 48, but given the penalty and the fact Jimmie and Chad have decided to use the rest of the regular season as a science fair project for the Chase I’ll put my money down on Kevin Harvick
Brett Winningham, Contributing Writer:
Harvick.
Aaron Bearden, Contributing Writer:
Jeff Gordon, just to be different from all of the #BlameJJ people.
Greg Davis, Senior Writer: Truex Jr.
Sean Fesko, Contributing Writer: Gordon.
Vito Pugliese, Senior Writer: Johnson.
Mike Neff, Short Track Coordinator: Johnson.
Clayton Caldwell, Contributing Writer: Johnson.
Danny Peters, Senior Writer: Truex Jr.
Phil Allaway, Senior Editor: Pulling a Joker’s Wild move circa 1973. We’re going off the board and picking Greg Biffle. Past winner, but no one’s expecting him to swoop in right now.

Results: Coca-Cola 600
