Here’s who NBC’s writers think will win today’s Roval race at Charlotte Motor Speedway (2 p.m. ET on NBC).

Dustin Long

A wildcard race gets a wildcard winner: Erik Jones wins in a backup car and avoids playoff elimination.

Nate Ryan

Jimmie Johnson. This track was his playground before a 2006 repave. Its road course brings Seven-Time back to glory and propels the No. 48 to the next round.

Daniel McFadin

Like Chase Briscoe the day before, Kyle Larson uses his dirt racing skills to get his first win of the year.

Dan Beaver

Jimmie Johnson: An odd track will create a lot of oddities. When the smoke clears, Johnson will be standing in victory lane.
