After a three week hiatus NASCAR returns to Watkins Glen for the Bowling at The Glen at Watkins Glen International.
The race on Sunday will feature two drivers: Chase Elliott (winner of the previous two New York Road Track races) and Martin Truex Jr. who scored top-two finishes in each of his three most recent visits, including a victory in 2017.
The 16-driver playoff NASCAR race is also intriguing. There are only four regular season races remaining to decide the final playoff field. Aric Almirola won the Foxwood Resorts Casino 301 race on July 18. This gave the season thirteen unique winners. Tyler Reddick was placed winless.
