Lost a little last week when Bowyer pitted at the end and Truex finished just ahead of him.  I'm -3 units on the year.  Looking back, I've been happy with my picks, just a little unlucky on a couple of the matchups (Newman wrecking at Phoenix, etc.).  A few matchups I liked early this week at Fontana.

Truex -105 over Martin
Keselowski -115 over Kahne
Menard -105 over Montoya
McMurray -115 over Montoya
Biffle -115 over Gordon

I've been against Montoya this year, so far it's been profitable...I'm gonna keep riding it.  The Keselowski, Truex, and Biffle picks are picks simply because it seems their team, car and driver are all clicking on all cylinders (rimshot). Pretty much riding the guys with momentum more than anything.

I'm still surprised some people are still on the Logano band wagon.  He constantly finishes between 14-18 every race.  He runs good, and then in the last 1/3 of the race every driver can muscle past him, get into his fender a little bit, and he lets them by.  Happens every race.  To my eyes, he's easily intimidated.  Opinions and thoughts?

as a Logano fan you are somewhat right about Joey being too nice.  However if you don't have the handle on the car you cannot hold up faster cars so you let them pass so you can finish a race.  Last year Joey would have finished 25th instead of 16th like he did the last 2 weeks.  He had a top 10 car last week after they adjusted poorly in the middle part of the race but he couldn't get the lucky dog after running in the lucky dog spot for more than 100 laps.  Joey is going to rip off some wins this year and he will have a good car this weekend. 

I don't think there are "bandwagon" picks right now but they are going to be good picks really shortly.  The 20 Team is getting some experience together and they are going to get better week in and week out.  Good luck with your picks
