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

Who Chooses the checkered flag?

Here are our selections for the road race of the season.

Winner: Kyle Busch
Rowdy is out for blood after taking his first checkered flag of the season a week at Pocono. After winning his first Xfinity Series race at The Glen on Saturday, Busch begins in the pole on Sunday as he chases his third career win in the track. From our point of view, as long as Busch does not mess or see his motor fail, he must at least finish in the top five.

Contenders: Joey Logano, Martin Truex Jr..
We’re simply not prepared to give up on the 2016 championship event, especially after his second-place finish in the NASCAR Xfinity Series race. His entire Cup crew marched on Saturday and they did not disappoint. His team knows it’s win or go home, so expect the 2015 Watkins Glen winner to take his shot Victory Lane on Sunday. In terms of Truex Jr., nicely his r??sum?? speaks for itself. The points leader possesses 14 period wins, three race wins, eight top-fives plus also a ridiculous 29 playoff points. Truex Jr. directed the most overall laps at Sonoma in June prior to fighting 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 completed 35th despite nearly winning a point in June. This time around we think it’s going to differ. Despite a mediocre run in clinic, Allmendinger’s results at Watkins Glen speak for themselves. In addition to a triumph in 2014, he has an average finish within the top 10 in eight career starts there. Don’t be surprised if Allmendinger performs spoiler to a motorist on the playoff bubble Sunday.
