This week’s predictions: MyAFibRisk.com 400:

Tom Bowles, Editor-In-Chief: I think Kevin Harvick comes out and shows why the No. 4 car dominated the regular season. Statement win to start the Chase.
Amy Henderson, Senior Editor:
Give me Jimmie Johnson. He can’t suck at Chicago forever, right?
Matt Stallknecht, Senior Editor:
Joey Logano.
Mark Howell, Senior Writer: My pick for Joliet is Martin Truex, Jr.
Tony Lumbis, Financial Manager
: Kevin Harvick.
Toni Montgomery, Senior Editor: Matt Kenseth.
Matt McLaughlin, Senior Writer:
Let’s see if the autumnal alarm clock has gone off at the 48/88 shop and go with Johnson.
Vito Pugliese, Senior Writer: Kevin Harvick.
Joseph Wolkin, Assistant Editor:
Joey Logano.
Jeff Wolfe, Senior Writer:
Harvick says they are going to crush the JGR cars, so for a second I thought maybe he was talking about Monster Trucks. But anyway, I’ll go with Harvick as usual.
Zach Catanzareti, Contributing Writer:
Matt Kenseth.
Aaron Bearden, Assistant Editor: Kyle Busch starts his first championship run off with a win.
Huston Ladner, Senior Editor: JoLo, yo
Danny Peters, Senior Writer:
Hurts my soul to predict this, but I’m going for pencil neck Logano.
Jerry Jordan, Contributing Writer:  Tony Stewart. He’s done it here before.
Phil Allaway, Senior Editor: I’m going to go with Brad Keselowski to tie Tony Stewart with his 3rd Joliet win.

Results: Federated Auto Parts 400
