Again another pretty loaded field with the top 1-2 zfinity guys of course with those 3 cup drivers


Not sure about xfinity series without looking but Kyle Busch really wants a CUP win here as this 1 of only  2-3 tracks N whole CUP circuit he hasn't won at.  Maybe in this series haven't looked but I think he in this for extra track time

Be interesting to see how odds shake and move this week leading up to and after sessions

so why did Candyass take a week off from dominating the xfinity circuit?

Oh I thought he was racing in the xfinity race this week is why unsaid that's probably why he is going to donut since he has never won a CUP race here.   Not sure if he's even won a xfinity race here either.  But figured he would run it just for more track time.  That's 1 of his main goals this season is win at the only 3 racetracks he's never won @ in the CUP series

well that a good question not sure. maybe I'm wrong and he doesn't think it matters as not the same car or whatever. Since he didn't run in that loaded field last week either and hasn't won a points paying race @ Charlotte either but damn he been good there a bunch without winning.

I'm waiting to take Logano for xfinity to start an open 2-slot parlay on CUP raceday. I Don't feel like having to bet a bunch @ +375 or whatever to make it worthwhile.

Liking Larson at +750 not sure what to think about his odds dropping but can't see them getting much better.  Anybody have any other thoughts about him?
 
Just know I'm. Not taking any of the guys below him all believe are under 4-1 here.  Some who aren't even that good at pocono I and shouldn't be IMO.

Still trying to figure out why there are 4 practices for this thing?

Yeah that makes no sense to me either. 

Even if they changed tire setup or whatever it's like they never raced here or something

Xfinity cars have never run @ pocono thats the reason for 4 practices.

That makes sense then.   

Never even crossed my mind they never aces here.   Should make for a very interesting race at least

Thanks for the Ino GnG

Looks like xfinity practice isn't gonna happen either

In a delay now but doubt it happens
