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

Who takes the checkered flag?

Here are our selections for the season’s final road race.

Winner: Kyle Busch
After shooting 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 in the pole on Sunday because he chases his third career win in the track. From our point of view, so long as Busch does not mess or see his engine neglect, he must at least finish in the top five.

Contenders: Joey Logano, Martin Truex Jr..
We are not really prepared to give up on the 2016 championship event, especially after his second-place finish in the NASCAR Xfinity Series race. Logano marched his Cup team out on Saturday and they didn’t disappoint. His team knows it is win or go home, so anticipate the 2015 Watkins Glen winner to take his shot Victory Lane on Sunday. In terms of Truex Jr., well his r??sum?? speaks for itself. The points leader possesses three race wins, 14 stage wins, eight top-fives and also a 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 believe he has not forgotten about that…

Wild Card: AJ Allmendinger
We were not very high on the road course specialist back in Sonoma, and for good reason. Allmendinger completed 35th, despite winning a point in June. This time around we think it’s going to differ. Despite a run in practice, the results at Watkins Glen of Allmendinger talk for themselves. In addition to a triumph in 2014, he has an average finish within the top 10 there. Don’t be surprised if Allmendinger performs spoiler to a driver on the playoff bubble Sunday.
