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

Who Chooses the checkered flag?

Here are our selections for this season’s road race.

Winner: Kyle Busch
After shooting his first checkered flag of the season last 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 in the track. From our point of view, as long as Busch doesn’t wreck or see his motor neglect, he must at least finish in the top five.

Contenders: Joey Logano, Martin Truex Jr..
We are not really ready to give up about the 2016 championship runner-up, particularly after his second-place finish in the NASCAR Xfinity Series race. His entire Cup crew marched out on Saturday and they did not 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., nicely his r??sum?? speaks for itself. The points leader possesses eight top-fives, 14 period wins, three race wins and also a 29 playoff points. Truex Jr. led the most overall laps at Sonoma in June prior to fighting engine failure with only 25 to proceed. Best believe he has not forgotten about that…

Wild Card: AJ Allmendinger
We were not very high on the road course expert back in Sonoma, and for good reason. Allmendinger completed 35th despite winning a stage in June. This time around we think it’s going to be different. Despite a fair run in practice, Allmendinger’s results at Watkins Glen talk for themselves. Besides a triumph in 2014, he’s got a normal finish within the top 10 there. Don’t be shocked if Allmendinger performs spoiler to a driver on the playoff bubble Sunday.
