This week’s predictions:
Tom Bowles, Editor-In-Chief: Kyle Larson.
Amy Henderson, Senior Editor: It’s hard to vote against Kevin Harvick… so I’m not going to. Happy for the W.
Jeff Wolfe, Senior Writer: HAR VICK (no relation to Michael).
Matt Stallknecht, Senior Editor: I’ll take Dale Jr. for the victory.
Mark Howell, Senior Writer: Harvick.
Joseph Wolkin, Senior Writer: I’m going with Paul Menard.
Tony Lumbis, Financial Manager: Joey Logano.
Toni Montgomery, Senior Editor: Jimmie Johnson.
Huston Ladner, Senior Editor: Matt Kenseth.
Matt McLaughlin, Senior Writer: Nose thoroughly pinched in hand I have to go with Johnson this week. Michigan is an aerodynamic track. Chad knows all the tricks. Hell he invented all the tricks. Maybe we ought to be trying to pick what the TV ratings will be?
Aaron Bearden, Assistant Editor: I’ll throw a bone to JR Nation and pick Dale. He’s been money at Michigan in recent years, and if he wins I can finally yell a well-earned “Dale Yeah!”
Greg Davis, Senior Writer: Earnhardt Jr. for his second victory on the season.
Sean Fesko, Contributing Writer: Harvick’s finished second the last four races here. It’s time to head to victory lane.
Vito Pugliese, Senior Writer: No. 41 all day long.
Mike Neff, Short Track Coordinator: I think the No. 4 of Harvick heads back to Victory Lane.
Danny Peters, Senior Writer: Harvick for me, please.
Jerry Jordan, Contributing Writer: Jeff Gordon.
