    With the Camping World Truck Series off until their big race under the lights at Bristol in three weeks, the stars of the NASCAR Xfinity and Sprint Cup Series make the trip North to the twists and turns of the lightning-fast Watkins Glen International for what should be two action-packed races on the brand-new asphalt surface. Will one of the drivers with good road racing techniques dominate the day or will strategy once again play into the finish of a race? The following information is credit to Jayski, MRN, and NBC Sports:

    Watkins Glen is another track with a good chance of a surprise winner. A.J. Allmendinger's had this circle on his calendar since last August, and the CGR guys are typically solid road course racers and will be doing all they can to clinch a spot, especially with the bubble shrinking pending Buescher's top 30 entrance.

    They should have a road course ringer like Ambrose or someone fill in for Junior, just to mess with the fans lol

    haha I was thinking the same thing the other day. Ambrose would most likely win in the 88, look how good he was in subpar RPM equipment on the road courses.

    I don't think it will rain looking at the forecast but that could change quickly and I certainly wouldn't mind seeing racing in the rain. Jeff Gordon will likely be behind the wheel of the 88 again. I don't think Rick Hendrick is going to take the risk of finding a road course specialist that might be lucky to get a top 15 finish.

    It's not that Rick doesn't want to find a road course specialist, it's that the sponsors want Jeff.

    If Gordon races this weekend, hopefully this is his last week. He can stop racing after his 800th start.

    I've been saying he'll retire after next season, but having read that article and knowing him, I can see him in the car until at least 2020.

    Is it a missed opportunity to have Jeff Gordon continue filling-in for Dale Jr when you could put in a younger, up and coming driver. Yes. But I think that if Rick Hendrick and the sponsors (like some of people in this community have said) want Jeff Gordon and if the 4-time champion is willing to still race, than we are going to see Jeff Gordon until Dale Jr comes back.

    Dear fans,

    Sponsors want Gordon, I'll give them Gordon.

    Best Wishes,
    Rick Hendrick
