The Big 3 will appear to continue their dominance as NASCAR heads into the next road-course race of the year: the GoBowling in the Glen 220.
Even though Kyle Busch, Kevin Harvick and Martin Truex Jr. are understandably the favorites once more, on this 2.45-mile monitor at Watkins Glen there are certain to be a couple of drivers, that one might not expect, threatening the leaders.
