This week’s predictions: Windows 10 400

Amy Henderson, Senior Editor: Just to be different, I’m going with Austin Dillon.
Matt Stallknecht, Senior Editor:
Kevin Harvick.
Mark Howell, Senior Writer: Martin Truex Jr. will complete the sweep.
Tony Lumbis, Financial Manager
: Brad Keselowski.
Toni Montgomery, Senior Editor: I’ll take Carl Edwards this week.
Huston Ladner, Senior Editor:
JoLo (Joey Logano).
Matt McLaughlin, Senior Writer: Please put me down for Keselowski. A Ford hasn’t won since Fontana the fifth race of the season and it’s time. As long as Keselowski isn’t preoccupied writing a possible Oscar speech for his work in Sharknado 3, that is. 
Aaron Bearden, Assistant Editor:
#BradK
Greg Davis, Senior Writer: Harvick.
Jerry Jordan, Contributing Writer: I talked to the Magic 8-Ball and it told me to pick Kurt Busch
Danny Peters, Senior Writer:
I’m going for a Truex sweep.
Vito Pugliese, Senior Writer: Harvick.
Zach Catanzareti, Contributing Writer:
Truex goes for two.
Sean Fesko, Contributing Writer:
Kyle Busch.
Mike Neff, Senior Editor:
I know I should continue to ride the Kyle Busch bandwagon but I’m going to hitch my wagon to Harvick this week.
Joseph Wolkin, Assistant Editor:
Denny Hamlin.
Jeff Wolfe, Senior Writer:
Well… Kyle Busch, I guess.
Clayton Caldwell, Contributing Writer: Harvick.

Results: Jeff Kyle 400 at the Brickyard
