NASCAR Picks of the Week - Kentucky - Quaker State 400

Gentlemen,
     This week the NASCAR guys head to KY Speedway for the Quaker State 400.  And it's gonna be HOT!  Normally this is a race I would attend, but Covid and the heat will prevent that.
     Well, as for all this year, tires will be a big story.  Look for tire wear being a big problem.  Especially coming out of turn three. And it has been a mileage race quite a few times.  Jimmy Johnson will be back.  And I'm expecting some surprises in finishing order.
      Everyone is touting Kyle Busch as the favorite.  But in my opinion, unless the Toyotas can get the right front tire problem solved they will not be a factor.  I'm thinking that the Fords have a really good chance here.  And some Chevy drivers have a good chance too.  Jimmy Johnson might be a good Long Shot pick.   But every time I pick him he manages to find another way to lose the race. I think I jinx him.  And there are about 6 cars in the 14th to 20th spot in the standings who will surprise.
      Speaking of J.J.  Here are the ways he has managed to have a bad finish this year:  Crash into a back marker (while leading), Getting hit by a lapped car (while in third),  too many men over the wall, Speeding while entering Pit Road, Speeding while leaving Pit road,  Unsecured lug nuts, uncontrolled tire, and flat left rear (caused by another car hitting him with the front spoiler while trying to draft).  About the next thing I can predict is:  Hitting a animal that wanders on to the track  (I'm picking a coyote, or  sea gull).
 
       Here's Your Top 12:
 
1.  Kevin Harvick ****                                                            7.  Martin Truex, Jr *
2.  Chase Elliott  *                                                                  8.  Alex Bowman
3.  Brad Keselowski**                                                             9.  Aric Almirola
4.  Ryan Blaney*                                                                   10.  Kyle Busch
5.  Denny Hamlin  ****                                                         11.  Kurt Busch
6.  Joey Logano **                                                                12.  Matt Dibenedetto
 
    Here's my Picks:
             Winner:  Aric Almirola
                     Long Shot:  Clint Bowyer
                              1st Out:  Timmy Hill
 
      Good Luck, And Thank-You for playing.
