First, my Pocono Picks
Well, at least Denny Hamlin was able to keep up his end of the deal. 95 points from Hamlin
Decent finishes by Reutimann and Hamlin (17th and 12th), but no laps led. Like that helps me. 58 from Reutimann, 68 from Hamlin.
Thanks for a good finish A.J. -_- 44 points from Allmendinger, 265 points overall
To Watkins Glen!
Starter: Tony Stewart
Reserve: Jeff Gordon
Tony is on his usual mid-summer surge. Tony has had great history at Watkins Glen. Put two and two together. Gordon gets my reserve spot, but I doubt he will sniff the starter's spot.
Starters: Marcos Ambrose, Matt Kenesth
Reserves: Kevin Harvick, Martin Truex Jr.
Marcos should get a good finish, and help try to boost what has been a dismal season for him. The odd thing with Watkins Glen is that the B-Listers just haven't seemed to do well here, almost like C-Listers at most tracks, so I'm somewhat limited in making a good, confident pick. I would choose Harvick, but I want to save some of his starts (only 3 left), so I will go with Kenesth. Harvick and Truex get the reserve spots.
Starter: Robby Gordon
Reserve: Ron Fellows
Unlike Sonoma, Robby has much more consistency here at Watkins Glen, so I am MUCH more confident in picking Robby for my starter spot. Fellows gets the reserve spot, in case I have a last minute change of heart.
