This will be an interesting weekend since NASCAR is running races in the Pocono’s on Saturday and Sunday this weekend. Saturday is the Pocono 325 and on Sunday will be the Pocono 350. To see how these teams will come out on back to back days is going to be fun to examine. These props are my best for Saturday’s race, and I’ll have another edition of my 6 pack of picks for Sunday’s race available as soon as possible. After 6 weeks of my NASCAR 6 pack of picks I’m an astonishing 27-9 and am hoping to improve on that mark with what will be two 6 packs by the end of the weekend.
Saturday, June 27
Pocono Organics 325
Top 10 Finish by Martin Truex, Jr -275
Truex should come back from a flat performance in Talladega. In his last four races at Pocono Racetrack he has two top 5’s and a win in June 0f 2018.
Denny Hamlin -115 over Brad Keselowski
In 28 career races at this track, Hamlin has won five times. In 20 races for Keselowski he has just one victory. Hamlin is also the defending champion at Pocono.
Chris Buescher +105 over Ricky Stenhouse, Jr
Stenhouse is extremely inconsistent and it is hard to expect him to put two good races together (finished 2nd at Talladega). Buescher has been running well this season and captured a win here in August of 2016.
Erik Jones -120 over Kurt Busch
In Busch’s last four races at this track his best finish is 9th and his worst is all the way down to 27th. Jones has four top 5’s here in his last six races. In the past three races at Pocono, Jones has finished second, third and fifth.
Winning Car Number over 17.5 +105
Besides getting the 20 car of Jones you get Logano (22), Truex (19) and the #18 car of Kyle Busch. This may be the spot where Kyle gets his first victory of the season. In his last four trips here Kyle has two wins, three top 5’s and has led for a combined 200 laps.
Winning Team of Race Joe Gibbs Racing +160
At +160 you can have the race team that has won 5 straight races at Pocono Raceway. Three races ago Gibbs Racing came in first and second and first and third before that. In the last race run here (July 28, 2019) Joe Gibbs swept the board with Hamlin winning it, Jones grabbed second, and Truex scored a top 3. Plus, like I said earlier Kyle Busch is the favorite in the race in general and for Joe Gibbs racing.
Overall 6 Pack of Prop Record 27-9
Here’s my first 6 pack of props for the weekend and I’ll have a second as soon as I see props for the race on Sunday. Enjoy back to back days of NASCAR madness.
