Welcome to our ninth year of staff predictions! Each week, our experts attempt to tell you who the winner of each Cup race will be. Take a look to see who your favorite writers think will win it all (or at least score some points) this week!
Think you can out-prognosticate our staff? Leave your picks in the comments and see how they stack up!
How we roll:
Each driver can be picked only twice each week. We can’t pick the same driver two weeks in a row. And if anyone is daring enough to pick from a pool of higher-risk drivers…well, he or she reaps some serious bonus points!
+5 – Win
+3 – 2nd-5th
+1 – 6th-10th
0 – 11th-20th
-1 – 21st-30th
-2 – 31st-36th
-3 – 37th-40th
*High-risk bonus: Win: +3; 2nd-5th: +2; 6th-10th: +1
This week’s predictions: Pennsylvania 400
Amy Henderson, Senior Editor: My pick this week is Martin Truex, Jr. He’s got the same car he dominated Charlotte with, so with a little luck, it should be a good day.
Zach Catanzareti, Staff Writer: I don’t get many gut feelings, but I’m going with Jeff Gordon.
Dan Greene, Webmaster: Smoke. He runs well at Pocono usually and has a nice thank you sign at the tunnel exit.
Tony Lumbis, Financial Manager: Hamlin uses his old stomping ground to get his season back on track.
Mark Howell, Senior Writer: Paul Menard for a surprise win.
Jeff Meyer, Sorta-kinda Retired: Smoke for me please.
Huston Ladner, Senior Editor: KyBu.
Jeff Wolfe, Senior Writer: Truex, Jr., too. There; he’s done.
Bryan Gable, Contributor: Chase Elliott.
Clayton Caldwell, Contributor: With how close he came to winning here last time we were here? Chase Elliott.
Dustin Albino, Contributor: Carl Edwards.
Sean Fesko, Staff Writer: Matt Kenseth.
Michael Finley, Contributor: Jeff Gordon in his final start until his next.
Corey Brewer, Contributor: Carl Edwards.
Joseph Wolkin, Assistant Editor: Denny Hamlin.
Danny Peters, Senior Writer: Kurt Busch.
