S6E03 - Texas and Kansas predictions, Bristol and Kentucky review
We couldn't stay away! Alternately, we couldn't plan ahead well enough and get all our picks in for 2 full weeks of racing last week. Underglow - what did you think? We're pretty unanimous in our opinion. Picks this week - who passes on the odds on favorite at Texas, and who completely mis-reads their notes and picks their Texas driver for Kansas.?  Ward Burton apparently had some fun with a snake in his tractor garage.  All this and a tiny bit more, this week on the Schmak. Picks for Texas: Lozell: Kyle Busch Coach: Kevin Harvick Rob: Denny Hamlin Picks for Kansas: Coach: Chase "the finger" Elliot Rob: Kevin Harvick Lozell: Truex Jr.
