And if so, which driver will it be?

· NBC Sports NASCAR America Fantasy League is back! For the final 10 races of the season, challenge our team at Today, our team will give their picks for Chicagoland – or will they? Has the competition between the broadcasters become so intense they are keeping their selections close to the vest?
