NASCAR at Watkins Glen picks, odds: Kyle Busch going for weekend sweep

الجمعة ١٩ يوليو ٢٠١٩

Who takes the checkered flag?

Here are our picks for the last road race of this season.

Winner: Kyle Busch
After taking his first checkered flag of the season a week at Pocono, rowdy is out for blood. After winning his first Xfinity Series race at The Glen on Saturday, Busch will start from the pole on Sunday as he chases his third career win at the track. From our perspective, so long as Busch doesn’t wreck or see his engine fail, he must at least finish in the top five.

Contenders: Joey Logano, Martin Truex Jr..
We are simply not prepared to give up about the 2016 championship runner-up, particularly after his second-place finish in the NASCAR Xfinity Series race. His Cup team marched on Saturday and they did not disappoint. His team knows it is win or go home, so anticipate the 2015 Watkins Glen winner to take his shot Victory Lane on Sunday. In terms of Truex Jr., well his r??sum?? speaks for itself. The points leader owns eight top-fives, 14 period wins, three race wins plus a ridiculous 29 playoff points. Truex Jr. directed the most complete laps in Sonoma in June prior to fighting engine failure with only 25 to proceed. Best believe he hasn’t forgotten about that…

Wild Card: AJ Allmendinger
We’re not very high on the road course expert back in Sonoma, and for good reason. Despite winning a stage in June, Allmendinger completed 35th. This time around we think that it’s going to be different. Despite a run in clinic, Allmendinger’s results at Watkins Glen speak for themselves. Besides a win in 2014, he has an average finish within the top 10 in eight career starts there. Do not be shocked if Allmendinger performs spoiler into a motorist on the playoff bubble Sunday.
