If you could add another track to the Nascar schedule, would it be a road course?

Watkins Glen - Making Right Turns...

Post by Seawall on Wed Aug 08, 2012 7:47 pm

It's back to the road course venue with this weeks Nascar race at Watkins Glen.

The Finger Lakes 355
(Or at least I think that is the name of it. I found no catchy logos for the race... maybe this is the best they can come up with... )
TRACK LAYOUT:


Our driver averages since 2010. (You might want to rethink putting AJ on your team..)


Gonna go out on a limb again, with some Pick-Ums!
PICKEM

Jeff Gordon. He'll be hungry for a "real" win after the rain shortened version at Pocono this past weekend. He can find his way around road courses, and his chance at a Chase berth needs another win.

DON'T PICKEM

Although more than capable of winning and leading laps at Watkins Glen, Kyle's cars are simply to be put... well... they are garbage this year.

DARK HORSE PICKEM

He's cheap, and THE BIG IF - if his car holds together and he can keep tires on it, this type track lends itself to the type of race the Finch group could possibly win.

League Standings...


League Standings for the Second Segment...




He just can't help himself; AJ is this week's Hot Button topic... again...
Toss it around. Now that AJ's wasted a couple week's time having teams hunt around exhaustively for something he could have consumed to cause his drug test to turn positive; he suddenly remembers he took a pill from a friend that was supposed to contain an energy supplement, because he was tired.... Kinda sounds like the dog ate the homework to me.. but you guys toss it around!

CHECK OUT THE POLL AT THE BEGINNING OF THE BLOG!!!
Also, please note I've shortened our Nascar league name to Nascar Buddies.

Good Morning Race Fans…


My pickem’ for this week would be none other than Marcos Ambrose. Except for an accident in the 2008 race, he has never finished worse than eighth on a road course in a Cup car. His sixth place finish came at Sonoma in 2010 when he was leading the race but stalled his car under caution.

Ambrose has been close to perfect in Watkins Glen and has never finished worse than third. His first attempt came in 2008 when he climbed into a car that started last in the field and made his way to third. If he can make up that many positions during a 220 mile race, this week should not be a challenge despite where he may start.

Sorry about not putting their names in; forgot all about it. But, you are right, that's Kurt!

Now for some more news; since Parker Kligerman and Brad K. parted ways, Parker has a new ride in the Camping World series.

Sometimes there are some good photos of drivers and their families, often, that come across Twitter. Since some of you don't know what the drivers look like; I'll post some when they come through.

Good article, Sea!!! I do find the statement "He later stated in other interviews that he had never done drugs and did not even know what an amphetamine was when told of his violation" to be pure hogwash, though!! The bad thing, is it makes me question all of his statements......
