Reason: "The reigning Sprint Cup Series Champion has been dominant in both the Cup and Xfinity Series in recent weeks and I feel this consistent driving will result in a victory for the driver of the #18 this week at Auto Club."

Stevie Larson

Driver: Kevin Harvick

Reason: "Harvick won last week at Phoenix, and I feel that he will keep his momentum from last week's win going and win this weekend. He did not win this race last season, which will leave him hungry to take home the trophy this time around."

Stephen Furst

Driver: Joey Logano

Reason: "While his record at the track may not show it, Logano runs strong at Auto Club Speedway and the sister track in Michigan. With a mix of decent and mediocre finishes so far this season, Joey is primed to charge to the checkered flag. I think we'll see him come out on top this week in Fontana."

Brandon Farris

Driver: Kyle Busch

Reason: "Hard to pick against Jimmie Johnson, as both of them are so strong here. But with Kyle missing this race last year. He is gonna have that extra push this week."
