Prime Sports NASCAR – Homestead picks

The time has come for the Dixie Vodka 400 (3:30 p.m. ET, FOX, MRN) this weekend. Greg, CJ and Eric went through their weekly picks with each going with similar drivers this week. The reason?

It’s time to win.

They’ve been close to hitting each week so far, but Michael McDowell and Christopher Bell were surprise winners over the first two weeks. Now, we’re to the more normal tracks on the schedule with wildcard races at Daytona behind us.

With Toyota dominating at Homestead lately mixed with the favorites being the favorites for a reason, our trio of experts went top heavy. CJ and Eric went with a few more longshots than normal in hoping for a 3-for-3 start with new winners, but if that doesn’t happen, all three have similar drivers on top to make up for it with one of them likely getting to victory lane.
