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

Who Chooses the checkered flag?

Here are our picks for the last road race of this season.

Winner: Kyle Busch
Rowdy is out for blood after shooting his first checkered flag of the season a week at Pocono. After winning his first Xfinity Series race at The Glen on Saturday, Busch will start in the pole on Sunday because 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 neglect, he must 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 event, especially after his second-place complete in the NASCAR Xfinity Series race. Logano marched his 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. As for Truex Jr., well his r??sum?? speaks for itself. The points leader possesses eight top-fives, 14 period wins, three race wins and also a ridiculous 29 playoff points. Truex Jr. directed the most overall laps at Sonoma in June before suffering engine failure with only 25 to go. Best think he has not forgotten about that…

Wild Card: AJ Allmendinger
We’re not so high on the road course expert back at Sonoma, and for good reason. Allmendinger completed 35th, despite winning a point in June. This time around we think that it’s going to differ. Despite a mediocre run in practice, Allmendinger’s results at Watkins Glen talk for themselves. Besides 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.
