This week’s predictions:
Tom Bowles, Editor-In-Chief: Jeff Gordon.
Amy Henderson, Senior Editor: I think I’ll go with Kevin Harvick this week.
Jeff Wolfe, Senior Writer: I say Martin Truex Jr. finally gets one.
Matt Stallknecht, Senior Editor: A Hendrick engine will go to victory lane this weekend. That’s pretty much a near certainty. It’s just a question of who. I’ll go with Dale Earnhardt Jr.
Mark Howell, Senior Writer: I’m going out on a shaky limb and giving the nod this week to Kasey Kahne.
Joseph Wolkin, Senior Writer: Brad Keselowski.
Jeff Meyer, Senior Writer: Carl Edwards, for the first leg of a Pocono sweep!
Tony Lumbis, Financial Manager: Jeff Gordon.
Zach Catanzareti, Contributing Writer: Picking someone a bit different: Pocono winner Joey Logano.
Toni Montgomery, Senior Editor: I will take Dale Jr.
Huston Ladner, Senior Editor: Jimmie Johnson.
Matt McLaughlin, Senior Writer: Earnhardt Jr. won them both last year, so we’ll see if you can pull off a three-peat.
Brett Winningham, Contributing Writer: Gordon!
Aaron Bearden, Contributing Writer: I’m going with Kurt Busch. Chevrolet has had a bit of a stronghold on Pocono recently outside of Brad Keselowski’s debris miss last summer, and Kurt’s been strong at the Tricky Triangle in the past.
Greg Davis, Senior Writer: I’m going with Edwards again this week!
Sean Fesko, Contributing Writer: Gordon punches his ticket to the Chase.
Vito Pugliese, Senior Writer: Gordon.
Mike Neff, Short Track Coordinator: JUNIOR!!!!
Clayton Caldwell, Contributing Writer: As Larry Mac would say Ryyyyyaann Neeewwwman.
Danny Peters, Senior Writer: Mark Martin! Just kidding… Gordon.
