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

Who Chooses the checkered flag as the Monster Energy Cup Series heads to Watkins Glen?

Here are our selections for the road race of this season. Winner: Kyle Busch After shooting 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 begins from the pole on Sunday as he chases his third career win at the track. From our point of view, so long as Busch doesn’t mess or see his engine neglect, he should at least finish in the top five. Contenders: Joey Logano, Martin Truex Jr.. We’re not really prepared to give up on the 2016 championship runner-up, particularly after his second-place finish in the NASCAR Xfinity Series race. Logano marched his Cup crew on Saturday and they didn’t disappoint. His team knows it is win or go home, so expect 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 possesses 14 period wins, three race wins, eight top-fives and also a 29 playoff points. Truex Jr. led the most overall laps at Sonoma in June before suffering engine failure with only 25 to proceed. Best think he has not forgotten about that… Wild Card: AJ Allmendinger We were not so high on the road course specialist back in Sonoma, and for good reason. Allmendinger finished 35th, despite almost winning a point in June. This time around we think that it’s going to be different. Despite a fair run in practice, the results at Watkins Glen of Allmendinger speak for themselves. In addition to a win in 2014, he has a normal finish inside the top 10 in eight career starts there. Don’t be surprised if Allmendinger plays spoiler to a motorist on the playoff bubble Sunday.
