This week’s predictions: Cheez-It 355 at the Glen
Tom Bowles, Editor-In-Chief: I’m going to stick with the Jeff Gordon train even though it hasn’t worked out in recent weeks. The Glen is where he finally gets it done.
Amy Henderson, Senior Editor: Hell if I know. Give me Kyle Busch, I could use some points.
Matt Stallknecht, Senior Editor: Brad Keselowski.
Mark Howell, Senior Writer: My pick for the Glen is Kyle Busch. He’ll get the win and his pass into the Chase.
Tony Lumbis, Financial Manager: AJ Allmendinger.
Toni Montgomery, Senior Editor: I’ll take Brad Keselowski.
Huston Ladner, Senior Editor: Kurt Busch.
Matt McLaughlin, Senior Writer: Going to go with Jimmie Johnson this week. There’s no sense on Knaus and company using this race as a test session when there’s no road courses in the Chase.
Aaron Bearden, Assistant Editor: I absolutely believe Kyle Busch will win, but I feel like everyone’s going to pick him, so I’m going with Keselowski.
Greg Davis, Senior Writer: Going with Jamie McMurray this weekend, been running well and just hasn’t gotten into position to win.
Danny Peters, Senior Writer: The 47! (Allmendinger)
Vito Pugliese, Senior Writer: Kurt Busch.
Sean Fesko, Contributing Writer: Dinger Dinger the Road Ringer!
Mike Neff, Senior Editor: Try as I might to choose someone else I just can’t do it. Give me Kyle Busch and some crispy M&M’s again this weekend.
Joseph Wolkin, Assistant Editor: Allmendinger because how can you not?
Jeff Wolfe, Senior Writer: Call me crazy but Tony Stewart.
Phil Allaway, Senior Editor: I’m going with McMurray for the upset. That’ll surprise some chaps.
Jeff Meyer, Senior Writer: Carl Edwards.
Brett Winningham, Contributing Writer: Allmendinger.
