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

Who takes the checkered flag Because the Monster Energy Cup Series heads to Watkins Glen?

Here are our picks for this season’s final road race.

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 begins from the pole on Sunday because he chases his third career win in the track. From our perspective, as long as Busch does not wreck or see his motor fail, he should at least finish in the top five.

Contenders: Joey Logano, Martin Truex Jr..
We’re simply not ready to give up on the 2016 championship event, particularly after his second-place complete in the NASCAR Xfinity Series race. Logano marched his entire Cup crew 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 eight top-fives, 14 period wins, three race wins and a ridiculous 29 playoff points. Truex Jr. directed the most complete laps at Sonoma in June prior to fighting engine failure with just 25 to go. Best believe he hasn’t forgotten about that…

Wild Card: AJ Allmendinger
We were not very high on the road course expert back at Sonoma, and for good reason. Despite winning a point in June, Allmendinger finished 35th. This time around we think that it’s going to be different. Despite a mediocre run in practice, the results at Watkins Glen of Allmendinger speak for themselves. In addition to a triumph in 2014, he has a normal finish within the top 10 in eight career starts there. Don’t be surprised if Allmendinger plays spoiler into a motorist on the playoff bubble Sunday.
