Here’s a look at who the NBC Sports staff is picking to win today’s NASCAR Cup race at Texas Motor Speedway.

Nate Ryan

Kyle Busch. A deal’s a deal. This is my guy until he wins.

Dustin Long

Joey Logano. Fords are fast and he’s due to win.

Daniel McFadin

Brad Keselowski. Using his early season momentum and the lessons learned from his Kentucky win last year, Keselowski earns his first Texas victory.

Jerry Bonkowski

Ryan Blaney. Fords are going to dominate this race, and Blaney – who will start on the outside of the fromt row – is going to lead the way. After 60 career Cup starts, Blaney gets his first career Cup win.
