NASCAR returns to the Finger Lakes this weekend for some road-racing action at Watkins Glen International. Sunday’s race will mark the second of three road races this season, with Martin Truex Jr. winning at Sonoma earlier in June and the debut of the Charlotte Roval course looming in the playoffs.
Truex is the defending winner at The Glen, and hopes to keep pace with his ‘Big 3’ counterparts Kevin Harvick and last week’s Pocono champion Kyle Busch. Just five races remain in the regular season, as drivers look to join those three drivers along with Austin Dillon, Clint Bowyer, Joey Logano and Erik Jones in the September’s Round of 16.
While Truex, Harvick and Busch have accounted for 16 wins in the first 21 races, however, road courses often provide an opportunity for a new winner to emerge.
