Staff picks for today’s Cup race at Pocono


Here’s a look at who the NBC Sports staff is picking to win today’s Cup race at Pocono Raceway.

Nate Ryan

Kyle Busch. Redemption finally for the race he should have won here nearly two years ago.

Dustin Long

Kyle Busch. So what that his crew chief isn’t on the box this weekend. His brother won this race a year ago without his crew chief on the box. Kyle will continue this family “tradition.”

Daniel McFadin

Martin Truex Jr. continues to tighten his stranglehold on stage points and playoff points with his third win of the year.

Jerry Bonkowski

Ryan Blaney. Call it a gut feeling, backed up by the way he’s qualified and practiced thus far this weekend. Blaney will beat Chase Elliott in the battle for their first respective Cup win.
