NASCAR Picks of the Week - 2021 - Road America

Gentlemen,
      Are ya ready for it?  Another Road Course, on the 4th of July, in Wisconsin the home of beer and cheese. I'm going to be waiting to see how many "Cheese Heads" will be showing up.  It's Wisconsin, it could be sunny, it could be cold, it could be raining.  Now there's a venue.  Cold, raining, and wet tires.  And there will be some "ringers" on the track.  Check the entry list.
     The problems I see:  Tires, brakes, and possibly wet.
 
Here's the top twelve, with my thoughts on their chances:
 
1.  Denny Hamlin - still in first, likes road courses but hates being pushed
2.  Kyle Larson - Very hot right now, but can break equipment.
3.  William Byron - a dark horse, very steady, could win
4.  Joey Logano - good on road courses a mistake by another could lead to a win
5.  Kyle Busch -  Could win, or could destroy his car and about three others
6.  Chase Elliott - probable winner if he doesn't get behind more than 5 cars
7.  Martin Truex, Jr. - another good chance, has the skills.
8.  Ryan Blaney - probably a top 5
9.  Kevin Harvick - has had troubles on road courses this year
10.  Brad Keselowski - could win, but crashes a lot
11.  Alex Bowman -  another 5-6 place car
12.  Austin Dillion - will the car be running at the end?  Depends on qualifying.
 
And Here's My Picks:
               Winner:  Martin Truex, Jr
                        Long Shot: AJ Almendinger -just needs a strong car
                                1st Out: Kyle Tilly
 
   Good Luck!  Have Fun!  Watch Your Picks!

    Gentlemen.
         IMHO  That was a good road race.  There's nothing quite like seeing a brake caliper destroy itself and come off a car shredding the tire.
        We had 1 person pick the actual winner of the race.  That was Bloody Hand, picking:  Chase Elliott.
         We had 2 people pick the best Long Shot.  They were Bloody Hand and Hendey Lathe,  Both picking:  Christopher Bell.
         And we had 2 People pick the best 1st Out.  They were Bigfoot and Hendey Lathe, both picking:  Ryan Eversley.
         And congratulations go out to this week's Best Picker, and NASCAR God of the weeK:  Fishin' Coyote with an excellent score of 80 points.  Congratulations!.
     
         Here's How We Scored:
     
    1.  Fishin' Coyote ******************************************  80
    2.  Bigfoot ***********************************************  79
    3.  Bloody Hand *****************************************  77
    4.  Timachro *******************************************  75
    5.  Porktown **************************************  60
    6.  Hendey Lathe ********************************  55
    7.  Wood Nickle *************************  38
    8.  Indsguiz **************************  34
    9.  Dano *********  9
