This week's picks
Here are the picks for this weekend's race.
Driver: Dale Earnhardt Jr.
Reason: "This weekend, he is running the same paint scheme as he did last July at Daytona, where he picked up the win. He also has yet to win a race this year, and I believe that this weekend is his time to go to victory lane."
Driver: Kevin Harvick
Reason: "The driver of the #4 Chevrolet has had a good season up to this point in the year and I believe he will have the stamina to get to Victory Lane this week in the longest race of the season. The Coca-Cola 600 at Charlotte Motor Speedway is always a test but the Stewart-Haas Racing driver will pull out another good run this week."
Driver: Carl Edwards
Reason: "Carl won this race a year ago on fuel mileage. He's already been to victory lane twice this year and is hungry for more. If the race ends up with long green flag runs, look for Carl to be up front and doing a back flip at the end of the night."
Driver: Kyle Larson
Reason: "Two great runs recently and showed success during the All-Star Race. 600 miles is a long race but just got a gut feeling on this kid propelling his ticket to the chase in this race"
