NASCAR at Watkins Glen: Odds, stats, bets to consider for road-course raceCat:未分類
With Kevin Harvick and Kyle Busch taking decorations in the last two Cup Series races, the next member of this”Big 3,” Martin Truex Jr., may feel his period to win is this weekend in 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 road program. Problem is, no present driver has accomplished a repeat win at The Glen. Marcos Ambrose, who returned in his native Australia to race, is the final to win races .
Truex, Harvick and kyle Busch are the 3 favorites not just to win Sunday but also to hoist the Cup Series trophy in November.
Maybe no one gets as excited about Watkins Glen’s road course as veteran A.J. Allmendinger, who hit his playoff ticket in the track in 2014. This week, allmendinger started to take the checkers.
Allmendinger has six top-10 finishes in his last seven races at The Glen and has achieved the impressive task of completing every lap (812) of every race he’s competed in there.
Distance: 220.5 miles (90 Laps); Stage 1 (Ends on Lap 20), Phase 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 route that recently got a repave. While the road-course is similar to Sonoma Raceway, it’s relatively flat with fewer turns, making it a faster course than its California sister.
