Here’s a look at who the NBC Sports staff is picking to win today’s Cup race at Pocono Raceway.

Nate Ryan

Kyle Busch. The season of streaks continues as the No. 18 driver resumes his turn at the top.

Dustin Long

Kyle Busch. He leads. He wins. He sweeps the weekend. Enough said.

Daniel McFadin

Kevin Harvick gets his first Pocono win, leaving Kentucky as the only active Cup track he has yet to win on (not counting the Roval).

Dan Beaver

Pocono has been kind to first time winners in recent years, so this is the week Chase Elliott finally gets it done.
