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. He has been so close many times at this track; it makes sense this season would be the breakthrough.

Dustin Long

Martin Truex Jr. Poke the bear and you get hurt. This team will rally around losing two tire changers to suspension.

Daniel McFadin

Kevin Harvick. After missing out on a victory here in June by one spot, Harvick crosses Pocono off his tracks to win at.

Jerry Bonkowski

Chase Elliott. He’ll join Chris Buescher and Ryan Blaney to become the third driver to earn his first career Cup win in as many races at Pocono on Sunday.
