MMCC Weekly Picks: Fontana

Well, well, well. We have our first correct pick in MMCC history. Terrence Hunley correctly forcasted a Bristol victory for Brad Keselowski, helping the last-place picker gain a bit of ground. Certainly not enough though. Patricia's pick of Dale Earnhardt Jr. ended up 15th and Jacob closed within two points after Jeff Burton finished sixth.

Now we head to the high banks of California, who you takin?

Monday Morning Crew Chief Picks: Fontana

Patricia (Monday Morning Driver): Jimmie Johnson is my pick to win the Auto Club 400. Even though the No. 48 team has had constant distractions since the debacle at Daytona, they have continued to run in the top ten. Now, with those distractions in the rear view mirror, we hit the reset button. They are now 11th in drivers points and Chad Knaus will be on the pit box with more confidence than he has ever had. For the other 42 drivers, that is a scary thought!

Jacob: The easy pick this week is Jimmie Johnson, but the pick with the most upside is Tony Stewart. Stewart won the last time the series was out west at Las Vegas and is the only driver to win on an intermediate track this season. Plus, we won't get much deeper into the season before we have a repeat winner. Stewart will be the first to notch win #2 this weekend at Fontana.

Terrence: I'm riding high after correctly picking Brad K to win at Bristol, let's see if we can do this all over again. This week, I bet another Roush-Fenway driver reaches victory lane. I'm going with none other than Greg Biffle. It's the Biff's time to shine and finish higher than third.

1. Patricia, 24
2. Jacob, 26
3. Terrence, 40
