NASCAR at Watkins Glen: Odds, stats, bets to consider for road-course race

00:00:00 - 27/06/2019 - thutrang

Together with Kevin Harvick and Kyle Busch taking trophies in the last two Cup Series races, the next member of the”Big 3,” Martin Truex Jr., will feel his period to triumph 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 begins on the road program. Problem is, no driver has accomplished a repeat win at The Glen. Marcos Ambrose, who returned to race in his native Australia, is the final to win back-to-back races in 2011-12.

Kyle Busch, Harvick and Truex would be the three favorites 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 at the track in 2014. This week, allmendinger started to take the checkers.

Allmendinger includes six top-10 finishes in his last seven races at The Glen and has accomplished the remarkable job of finishing every lap (812) of each race he’s competed in there.

Race setup
Distance: 220.5 miles (90 Laps); Stage 1 (Ends on Lap 20), Stage 2 (Ends on Lap 40), Closing Phase (Ends on Lap 90).
