NASCAR at Watkins Glen: Starting lineup, results, updates for I Love New York 355 – Sporting News

The winding course at Watkins Glen should make for some surprises as the NASCAR playoffs near. Several drivers are searching for a win Sunday afternoon heading into the I Love New York 355 at Watkins Glen International.

Kyle Busch came away the winner last week at Pocono, his first win at that track in his career. Can drivers like Kyle Larson, Martin Truex Jr. and Chase Elliott give Busch a challenge this time around? Or will Busch take a trip to Victory Lane once again?

The race is now being broke into three stages for drivers to pick up points. The first two stages are 20 laps, then a 50-lap stage to end the race.
