Picking Michigan this week may be one of the tougher assignments in a while.

Since it’s already Thursday and I’m in a hurry because the wife has scheduled a portrait session at 4 pm with our two sons I’ll make this short and to the point.

It looked like I would be attending this event but now… the wife isn’t wanting to go so much and apparently her family is trying to force me to be in some sort of cook out/baby shower this weekend… So needless to say the desire to write too much is also not really there.

Here are some guys you should pick and why.

Denny Hamlin – He won the earlier event at the track this year
Jeff Gordon – Much success
Kurt Busch – Always good, was good earlier this year
Carl Edwards – Average finish of 6th. Fords are looking better
Matt Kenseth – Two wins, average of 10th, looking to win for Jack in his possible return to the track?
Greg Biffle – Heck, why not?
Jimmie Johnson – Never bet against the 4 time champion
Tony Stewart – 15 top 10’s in 23 starts
Juan Montoya – Has had a great car last few weeks, trying to build on momentumWATKINS GLEN, NY - AUGUST 08: Joey Logano, driver of the  Home  Depot Toyota, stands on the grid prior to the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series  Heluva Good!

Kasey Kahne – was a top car earlier this year

For our super secret back pack special this week we go with.. Joey Logano.

Logano is entering his fourth try at the track. He finished 10th earlier this year and was 7th in last summers race.
