|Double-J did his best Kyle Busch impression as his engine expired while leading the pack with five laps remaining at MIS last week. Tough loss JJ, but you'll recover with the company of your five Sprint Cup titles! RFR girl Biffle was the eventual winner and while I picked the team I missed out with the driver as I backed Kenseth last week.

This week we are back to some short-track racing and if last night's race was any indication, the new surface will produce a lot of bump-n-run and congrats to Logano for bringing home the victory last night. What a great kid he is. Love his attitude, love his youth and love his smile. Keep bringing the thunder JL! Saddler wasn't too thrilled with his shove by Stenhouse jr. but that is how it is at Bristol-even if Stenhouse did apologize immediately to ES.
Can JL win B2B? Not business to business but back to back? Not sure if he'll take it again but he is sure fun to watch.
And remember folks, drivers who show up in this column end up leading the race and/or winning. That said, let's get down to my favorite double-stacker-BK. Yep Brad Keselowski (+600) is the defending race winner and led last week at Michigan.
Don't forget that of the last six races at Bristol three drivers have won back to back. If Keselowski wins then he'll be the fourth consecutive back-to-back winner at Bristol.
Another driver that has been dubbed "Mr. Bristol" is Kyle Busch who has the favorite spot, bet down from 9/2 to 4/1, the main concern with KB (other than the usual) is that he hates the new surface at Bristol and his engines keep blowing up. Stay way from BK and KB.
Meanwhile, if you didn't feel the heat from Johnson last weekend after MIS then you weren't paying attention. Today's pick is based on last weekend's result (even if Mears is leaving from the pole).
Pick! Jimmie Johnson, 7/1.
