This week’s predictions: Hollywood Casino 400
Amy Henderson, Senior Editor: I’ll go with Jeff Gordon for No. 93.
Mark Howell, Senior Writer: The letter for this week is “K”, as in “Kansas” and “Kenseth”. Matt‘s my pick for this weekend’s race.
Toni Montgomery, Senior Editor: Give me Brad Keselowski. That’ll work.
Matt McLaughlin, Senior Writer: Kenseth desperately needs a good finish and I reckon he’ll get one, maybe even a win. You ever hear about my late friend the eternal optometrist? He was just sure he could beat that train to the crossing.
Joseph Wolkin, Assistant Editor: I’m going with Ryan Blaney.
Jeff Wolfe, Senior Writer: HARVICK.
Zach Catanzareti, Contributor: Denny’s Denny Hamlin.
Aaron Bearden, Assistant Editor: I don’t feel like trying this week. Give me Harvick.
Huston Ladner, Senior Editor: Brad Kes.
Danny Peters, Senior Writer: No. 20 for me please.
Jerry Jordan, Contributor: Because he has a “stellar record of performance” at Kansas Speedway, I am picking Kyle Busch for the win. It can’t be any worse than the person who picked Harvick at Dover.
Mike Neff, Short Track Coordinator: Need a rebound. Give me Kenseth for the rebound as well.
Clayton Caldwell, Contributor: No. 20.
Matt Stallknecht, Senior Editor: I’ll take the No. 78.
Sean Fesko, Contributor: Kurt Busch.
Vito Pugliese: Keselowski.
