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 last 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 because he chases his third career win in the track. From our perspective, as long as Busch does not wreck or see his engine fail, he should at least finish in the top five.

Contenders: Joey Logano, Martin Truex Jr..
We are not really ready to give up on the 2016 championship event, particularly after his second-place finish in the NASCAR Xfinity Series race. Logano marched his Cup crew 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 at Victory Lane on Sunday. In terms of Truex Jr., nicely his r??sum?? speaks for itself. The points leader possesses three race wins, 14 stage wins, eight top-fives plus also a 29 playoff points. Truex Jr. directed the most overall laps at Sonoma in June before suffering 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. Despite nearly winning a stage in June, Allmendinger completed 35th. This time around we think that it’s going to differ. Despite a fair run in practice, the results at Watkins Glen of Allmendinger speak for themselves. Besides a win in 2014, he’s got a normal finish within the top 10 in eight career starts there. Don’t be shocked if Allmendinger plays spoiler into a driver on the playoff bubble Sunday.
