NASCAR Picks: Bristol

Pick-A-Winner

While Kasey Kahne didn’t pull off the win for me last week at Michigan, I’m just happy with a top ten finish. Kahne came home 7th pulling my average up ever so slightly to 13.17. To see all my picks and averages for the year, CLICK HERE. This week I’m going with Brad Keselowski. Penske Racing is fresh off a win last week with Joey Logano and Brad should be more motivated than ever to put a mark in his win column. Bristol is a place that Brad and the blue deuce know their way around all too well.

As I mentioned above, my A driver, Kasey Kahne came home in 7th place. My B driver Greg Biffle came home 9th. My C driver Austin Dillon came home 14th in Tony Stewart’s car. It was my other B driver Dale Earnhardt Jr. that really screwed me over with his 36th place finish.

This week I’m going Brad Keselowski as my A driver, the Busch brothers for my B team, and Ricky Stenhouse Jr. for my C driver.

NASCAR Picks: New Hampshire

Pick-A-Winner

Tony Stewart almost pulled off some of that summer magic of his last weekend in Daytona for me, but hey, I’ll take a 2nd place.  That brings my over all average up to 11.6, maybe I’ll have a top ten average by the end of the year!

This week I’m going with Joey Logano. He’s won here before and has 4 top ten’s in 9 starts. The number 22 team is on an up swing and I think he can break into victory lane this weekend.

Last week I thought I had a very solid week considering the randomness of restrictor plate racing. Like I mentioned above, Tony Stewart finished 2nd. Kurt Busch finished 6th, Dale Jr. 8th.  David Ragan came home a respectable 22nd. I also got a qualifying bonus for Kyle Busch.

This week my A driver is Jimmie Johnson, he’s on a such a role I can’t help but not pick him. My B team is Joey Logano and Kurt Busch. For my C driver I’m going with a bit of a respect move. I’m picking Morgan Shepard who Sunday will become the oldest person ever to race in Sprint Cup at the age of 72.  On the bench I’ve got Brad Keselowski, Ryan Newman, Kyle Busch, and Rickey Stenhouse Jr.

NASCAR Picks: Kentucky

Pick-A-Winner

Kurt Busch’s 4th place finish last weekend at Sonoma brings my overall average back to 12.69. This week at Kentucky I’m going with Kyle Busch. He’s running all three races and anytime he gets a lot of seat time I feel like he is always a threat to win. To see all my picks and averages for the year CLICK HERE

Despite Danica Patrick proving once again that you can’t pick her my team did pretty well. A 5th for Clint Bowyer, 4th for Kurt Busch, and 7th for Marcos Ambrose gave me a solid week overall.

This week on my A team I’m going with Brad Keselowski. He’s a former Kentucky winner and is due for a good run. He like Kyle Busch is running all three races and I think that gives him an advantage come Saturday night. On my b team as I mentioned above I’ve got Kyle Busch and Martin Truex Jr. Kentucky has been a good track for Truex and he has all the momentum in the world after last weeks win. For my C driver I’m going with Austin Dillon.

 

NASCAR Picks: Sonoma

Time for a little road course racing!

 

Pick-A-Winner

Well my pick last week in Dale Jr. sure did go up in smoke didn’t it? His 37th place finish dropped my average finish to 13.27 for the year. To see all of my picks for 2013 CLICK HERE.

This week at Sonoma I’m going with Kurt Busch. He almost won last year in James Finch’s #51, I think in a little better equipment he can pull it off this weekend!

Last week I had mixed results but still salvaged a decent points total. My a driver Denny Hamlin finished 30th, my B driver Dale Earnhardt Jr. finished 37th.  I did however have the winner on my B team in Greg Biffle. Along with Trevor Bayne who finished 15th.

This week in Sonoma I feel really good about my picks but a road course is kind of like a short track or a restrictor plate track, anything can and will happen.

On my A team I’m going with Clint Bowyer. Defending race winner, I figure he is a lock for a top ten. On my B team I’m going with Kurt Busch and Marcos Ambrose. Again two locks for the top ten. On my C team I went back and fourth all week between Danica Patrick and Jaques Villeneuve but I finally decided on Danica. She is a good road racer and should be good for a solid top 20 finish this week. On my bench I’ve got Jeff Gordon, Juan Pablo Montoya, Kyle Busch, and Jaques Villeneuve all of which I feel are a threat for the pole or at least some bonus qualifying points.

 

NASCAR Picks: Dover

Pick-A-Winner

Well my sure fire pick last week of Jimmy Johnson back fired and knocked me down out of my almost Top 10 average down to 11.92. To see all my picks and averages for the season, CLICK HERE

This week I’m going with a bit of a dark horse, the man who swept both Nationwide races last year at Dover, I’m going with Joey Logano.

It’s down to the wire for the spring segment! While I didn’t do as well as I had hoped last week at Charlotte, with Jimmy Johnson finishing 22nd, Jamie McMurray finishing 19th, and Casey Mears finishing 23rd. Kurt Busch’ 3rd place run was my only saving grace. I did end up moving up to 2nd place in my small league, just 131 points out of 1st. While I’d love to pull of the spring segment win, I’ll be happy with second because I’m more worried about the overall win.

This week for my A driver I’m once again going with Jimmie Johnson, on my B team is my race winning pick of Joey Logano and Kyle Busch. On my C team I’m giving the start to Rickey Stenhouse Jr.  On the bench I’ve got Matt Kenseth, Kurt Busch, Ryan Newman, and Danica Patrick.
