Logan - Chase Elliott
Zach - Denny Hamlin: Eventually Denny Hamlin has got to win one right? Denny Hamlin is my pick because he has the best stats at Phoenix amongst this year's Championship Four. He has the best average finish, most Top 10s, and Top 5s, as well as 2 Wins tying with Joey Logano. I wouldn't be surprised if a non Championship Four driver (Harvick) wins this race, and if that's the case I will take Denny Hamlin and his stats at Phoenix in a one off championship race.
Peyton - Denny Hamlin : It's no secret that Denny Hamlin has the best stats of the championship four at phoenix - BUT I want to talk about just pure luck. After an unfortunate end to last year's season, this man go his third Daytona 500 win this year and (along with Kevin Harvick) went on an absolute tear! All year long everyone said Kevin Harvick would win the championship because he's amazing at Phoenix, but luckily for Hamlin, Harvick didn't make the cut...leaving Hamlin to take the trophy home.
Adam - Denny Hamlin : Of the four playoff drivers, Denny has had the best season - and has the best career record at Phoenix. He also has the second-best record at short tracks, behind only Kyle Busch. Last year when Phoenix was the cutoff race, Hamlin showed he performs well under pressure. Denny finishes 2nd , with HArv
AJ - BRAD KESELOWSKI :Team Penske has shown all season that they have the most consistent averages through the season. All of their drivers won multiple races. While Harvick and Hamlin won MOST events this year, a Team Penske Ford was always in the picture. Keselowski's experience as a young champion in 2012 and consistent on-track success make him the best in my opinion. It helps that he will likely have the least amount of media following him this week. Look for #2 to get championship 2 this weekend in sunny Arizona.
