This week’s predictions: Pure Michigan 400
Tom Bowles, Editor-In-Chief: Going with Brad Keselowski. Penske stays hot.
Amy Henderson, Senior Editor: I’ll take Dale Earnhardt Jr. He’s good at Michigan and at drafting.
Matt Stallknecht, Senior Editor: I’m gonna go out on a weird limb this week and pick David Ragan. He’s been deceptively fast lately, loves Michigan, and will have an advantage if drafting comes into play.
Mark Howell, Senior Writer: My pick for MIS is Martin Truex Jr.
Tony Lumbis, Financial Manager: Matt Kenseth.
Toni Montgomery, Senior Editor: How about Joey Logano?
Huston Ladner, Senior Editor: Kurt Busch.
Matt McLaughlin, Senior Writer: With the new rules package, who knows. A wayward vacationer in the Family Truckster might wander onto the track and win. But I’ll go with Keselowski because he’s complained about the rules package the most and Karma is a merry prankster.
Aaron Bearden, Assistant Editor: Screw it: Kasey Kahne.
Greg Davis, Senior Writer: Keselowski for me as well!
Vito Pugliese, Senior Writer: Brad K. at his home track.
Sean Fesko, Contributing Writer: Clint Bowyer.
Mike Neff, Senior Editor: As near as I can tell, the horse is still breathing. Give me Kyle Busch again.
Joseph Wolkin, Assistant Editor: I’m going with Keselowski.
Jeff Wolfe, Senior Writer: OK, so I picked Tony Stewart last week and he finished last. Enough of that. Kevin Harvick this week.
Zach Catanzareti, Contributing Writer: Harvick will end his “long” winless streak.
Jerry Jordan, Contributing Writer: Keselowski.
