Here’s a look at who the NBC Sports staff is picking to win today’s Cup race at Chicagoland Speedway.
Matt Kenseth. After so many unfortunate twists for his team over the last 18 months, he said on the NASCAR on NBC podcast he might be due for 10 consecutive races of good luck. It starts here.
Martin Truex Jr. gets the win after two miserable endings at Darlington and Richmond.
Brad Keselowski. While some may think he put his foot in his mouth for criticizing Kyle Busch, Toyota and others, Keselowski thinks that same foot can help him start the playoffs with a win, like he did in 2012 when he won the championship.
