 :< alright fellas after the race nobody won and handicapping was useless for about the 1st time all year we are off to one the BEST races of the entire yet IMO, and by far the best road course that the CUP series goes to every year.  I think this era w should be in the chase. It's crushes the slow ass Sonoma road race that I hate but just my opinion.  Plus been some big paying winners like when we hit Kyle @ 30-1 only a few hrs ago.    And how about that epic battle with Kyle, BL, and Ambrose 2 years ago?!    One of the best finishes ever.  I just love this race track and I'm not a big road course fan but this is fast and lots of big crashes.  It's just great I can't wait. 

Anyways everybody's opinions, picks and stats are always welcomed in this thread and encouraged.  Helping each other is what makes us the best NASCAR ha di along sis BY FAR.   And after the pocono crap it's time to start another big winning streak this week!!!!

Odds should be out later Tuesday eveing hopwdully and jay will post the other series smtinorroe too I'm sure. Probably grab 1\ early and plan on parlaying a few favs.  And not talking about smoke.  It's amazing how much better some guys are here than Sonoma and vise versa.   In fired up.   I haven't looked but hopefully the other 2 series are both in action and probably on a diff road course but I'll have to look.   

I watched last years race this evening  and will watch 2014 race in the morning and start reading my individual driver notebook for Watkins Glen.  Lets keep getting it done.   We owe the books a huge winner again cause nobody won pocono in the world probably, at least winner wise.  L ol. 

GOODLUCK this week everybody!!!

The Glen isn't as much fun since Ambrose retired.

DALE JR is out at least 2 more races (Watkins Glen and BRISOL)


** I don't think we will see him again this year.  No way he's gonna make the chase now. Not to mention  he's at the end of his current deal and isn't a spring chicken.  Could this be it for him?

He might just retire

I'd like to see what one of the xfinity guys could do in that car. Jones or Suarez. Looked to see if I was forgetting anyone...did anyone realize Jones is in 4th? Sadler-Suarez-Dillion-Jones

I also thought Justin Allgaier was a cup driver that drove xfinity sometimes.

Why can't they bring in Ambrose to drive the 88 or at least some other ringer? Tagliani?

I was thinking Hornish since he's been active recently and is good here.

Will be looking at:
kyle
brad
carl
kurt

They're slow as fuck this week with the delay. I'll never understand why it takes them so long. I could start researching and have the top 20 odds posted an hour later.

Big thing to keep in mind this week is during the testing there was not any tire wear or fall off in terms of laps speeds on the new paved surface. Therefore, expect plenty of strategy and stretching fuel mileage.
