Picks for the Win: (Kobalt Tools 500) @ Phoenix International Raceway

Here are my Picks for the Win for tomorrow’s race at Phoenix.

No Brainers

1.#48 Jimmie Johnson. 4 wins at Phoenix.  Can’t argue with that.
2. #99 Carl Edwards. He just won the Nationwide race there this afternoon from the front row.  He’s got the pole for tomorrow’s race.  He’s been fast all weekend.
3. #2 Kurt Busch.  He’s been fast all weekend as well.  He’s won at Phoenix before and can do it again if the situation presents itself.

Guys to Watch

1. #5 Mark Martin.  He’s on an upswing of momentum and knows how to win here since it happened for him last year.  It could happen again
2. #16 Greg Biffle.  He has a habit of coming on strong near the end of the season when he’s too far out to win the championship.  He might pull off something cool at Phoenix.
3. #17 Matt Kenseth.  He finished second last week at Texas in a close battle with Denny Hamlin.  Perhaps he’s turned the corner.  He has also won at Phoenix before.

We shall see how it shakes out this week!
