NASCAR at Watkins Glen: Odds, stats, bets to consider for road-course raceCat:未分類
Together with Kevin Harvick and Kyle Busch taking decorations from the last two Cup Series races, the next member of the”Big 3,” Martin Truex Jr., may feel his time to win is this weekend at Watkins Glen International (WGI).
Truex is the defending winner in Watkins Glen and has top-10 finishes in his last two races there, and seven top 10s in 12 total starts on the street course. Problem is, no driver has accomplished a repeat win in The Glen. Marcos Ambrose, who returned to race in his native Australia, is the final to win races here.
Kyle Busch, Harvick and Truex are the three favorites to hoist the Cup Series trophy in November but also to win Sunday.
Perhaps no one gets as excited about Watkins Glen’s road course as veteran A.J. Allmendinger, who punched his playoff ticket in the track in 2014. Allmendinger opened to take the checkers.
Allmendinger has six top-10 finishes in his last seven races at The Glen and has accomplished the remarkable task of completing every lap (812) of each race he’s competed in there.
Distance: 220.5 kilometers (90 Laps); Stage 1 (Ends on Lap 20), Stage 2 (Ends on Lap 40), Closing Phase (Ends on Lap 90).
Watkins Glen, located in upstate New York, is a 7-turn, 2.45-mile street course that recently got a repave. While the road-course is similar to Sonoma Raceway, it’s relatively flat with fewer twists, which makes it a faster route than its California sister.
