This week NASCAR makes its second, and last, trip to a road course. Watkins Glen International is located in the picturesque Finger Lakes in Western New York, not far from the Syracuse area. These lakes were formed from the glaciers of the Ice Age! Unlike Sonoma, which is slower highly technical race track, The Glen is a much faster high speed, internationally acclaimed road course.
Our Watkins Glen Picks
As the accompanying photo would indicate, this week the overwhelming choice of The Redneck Fantasy League is Kurt Busch. There are five players, Snoopy Dawn, Linda The Cookie Mom, Bernie The Bay Area Bandit, David The Mudslinging Throttle Jockey, as well as Jason The Latent Tie Dye Hippie and All-Around Edgy Dude that will be pounding down gallons of Monster Energy Drink and rooting loudly for “The Outlaw”!
“Cousin” Carl Edwards has a rather large fan base this week with four players sitting on the pit box. The four players who are hoping that Edwards can drive his No. 19 JGR Toyota into Victory Lane are Karen The Highly Opinionated Southern Belle, Bobby Blue Crush, Jim, aka Chiefy, as well as Kathy The Church Forecloser.
Skid-Marc, Jerry The Buschwacker and Zee, aka Sissy are combining forces this week to back “The Shrub”, Kyle Busch.
There are two drivers who a rooting section of two players each. Jeremy The Coach and Doug The Former Mudslinger and Psychic, Turned Gandy Candy Dude are really hoping that “where there is Smoke, there will be fire”. In other words, these two are hoping that Tony Stewart has one more win in him before retirement.
Lastly, Edie The Las Vegas Super Star and Your Most Humble Sheriff, The Bossman, Water Cooler Leon are congregating their support for the little team that A.J. Allmendinger drives for JGT/Daugherty
Adding up all those numbers, and doing basic math in public, leaves six players that have independent choices this week. Oh yeah that really means that they are in bidnez for themselves!
Good luck to all this week. I don’t know about you all, but this week I am definitely in a “New York State of Mind”!
TIL NEXT TIME, PULL YOUR GLOVES UP, FLIP YOUR VISOR DOWN, AND LET’S GO RACIN’!
