MMCC Weekly Picks: Las Vegas

Well Phoenix was a wild one as far as the favorites go, nothing went as expected. Patrica's pick of Kyle Busch was best with his 6th place finish, Jacob's pick of Edwards wound up 17th and Terrence's pick of Kasey Kahne couldn't get past the first caution and ended up 34th.

Monday Morning Crew Chief Picks: Las Vegas

Patricia (Monday Morning Driver): This week I'm going with "The Biff." With a third place finish at both Daytona and Phoenix, Greg Biffle is poised for his first win of 2012. The #16 team has momentum and confidence going into Las Vegas this weekend, and that is a winning combination.

Jacob: This is a tough one since the series has yet to visit amile-and-a-half track such as Las Vegas Motor Speedway, but I will go with Greg Biffle. The Biff is off to a great start to the season and sits just six points out of the lead in the points standings. Plus, he should’ve won the race at Las Vegas last year but fueling problems cost him too much time in the pits and he finished 24th, the last car on the lead lap. The #16 team is running much smoother this yearand could finally put Biffle back in Victory Lane.

Terrence: Roush-Fenway Racing has been consistently great at the bigger tracks, with this being the first trip to a mile and a half track, look for all the Roush guys to be up front. My pick is Carl Edwards. The #99 has four wins at the track, including two with Cousin Carl in 2008 and 2011. Edwards is looking for a strong showing to get back on track.

1. Patricia, 6
2. Jacob, 17
3. Terrence, 34
