An Early Prediction for a Win at the Glen

The race at Watkins Glen International Speedway couldn't be coming at a better time for Tony Stewart.

It's a place where Stewart seems to have the magic touch.

Since 2002, the NASCAR Cup series has visited The Glen eight times.  Stewart has won five of those contests

In fact, in 11 career starts at WGI, Stewart has emerged victorious 45.5 percent of the time.  That's his best win percentage at any track on the circuit.

Most drivers would kill to have those kind of numbers - at any track.

And when you consider Stewart's second-place pole run at Pocono Sunday and his top five showing at The Brickyard a week prior, a good run at WGI by the No. 14 team seems practically inevitable.

Yep, Smoke is definitely catching fire ... and he's my pick to win at The Glen.

  1. I hope your pick is wrong...only because I really hope Ambrose makes up for his costly mistake at Sonoma by picking up his first win this weekend!

  2. Marcos will redeem himself rom his Sonoma mistake by winning at the Glen.
    PS: Labonte will redeem himself in 2011 by winning in the #47 :D
