Fantasy Live Picks for Watkins Glen

Facebooktwitter

The monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series will compete at Watkins Glen Sunday. This is the second and final road course race of the season. These races can be unpredictable because of strategy but after watching the Xfinity Series race Saturday, I think selecting the drivers who start the race up front will be important.

Usually the Xfinity Series race is much shorter than the MENCS race. That is not the case this week. Today’s race is only 8 laps longer than the Xfinity Series race Saturday. I expect similar strategies to play out. Seven of the drivers who finished the Xfinity Series race in the top 10 started the race in the top 10. Passing is very difficult so starting position will be important today.

There are only 90 laps in the race Sunday. That means there are only 90 bonus points available for leading laps and fastest laps this week. I do not think it is smart to try and pick three dominators. You will score better if you select four drivers who you think will finish each Stage in the top 10 and finish the race in the top 10.

NASCAR is using a condensed schedule this week so I have a short time to post my picks. I will not have time to break down why I selected the drivers I did. Next week the series will be back to a normal schedule the following week at Michigan. Sorry for the inconvenience.

 

Here are my picks for the I love New York 355…

Kyle Busch $28.00 (Starts Pole) *I Have Kyle Busch for $27.00

Brad Keselowski $26.50 (Starts 8th)
