The Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series will travel back to Chicagoland Speedway this week for the Overton’s 400. This is will be the 6th race of the season on a 1.5-mile track so it should be pretty easy to figure out who will run well Sunday.

Here are my picks for Chicago…

Denny Hamlin ? Chicago MartinTruex Jr.

Denny Hamlin will be my One & Done pick this week. Hamlin has not finished outside the top 6 at Chicago since 2013. He won here in 2015 and he needs a win to secure his spot in the playoffs. The No. 11 car was pretty fast in practice and Hamlin qualified 4th. He should easily finish in the top 10 and challenge for a top 5 Sunday.

Good luck this week!
