A more familiar choice, Tony Stewart, who is the ultimate racer’s racer opened at 11-4. Jeff Gordon is another solid road course expert and a 8-1 favorite in NASCAR betting while former Formula One ace Juan Montoya 5-1, Kyle Busch 12-1 and Jimmie Johnson 12-1 rounded out the top opening favorites.

Ambrose will be in the Little Debbie Toyota and is a legitimately dangerous threat in Heluva Good!

He finished 6th in this year’s previous road race at Sonoma. Stewart ranks 8th in the Sprint Cup chase and is also a Watkins Glen ace with an average finish of 5.3 and 5 wins. He has an average finish of 7.3 in his career at road courses.

The remarkably consistent Gordon is 2nd in the Sprint Cup standings and has 4 career wins at The Glen with an average finish of 15. He has 9 total road course wins with an average finish of 11.9. Montoya has 1 road course win and an average finish of 10.3. Busch has 1 win at Watkins Glen and 2 career road course wins with a career average on the road of 15.9. Johnson has been steady but unspectacular at road courses with 1 win and an average finish of 14.4.
