NASCAR is making its way back to a road course this week as it gets set for the less technical of these types of races on tour with Watkins Glen.

Martin Truex Jr., took the win at Sonoma earlier this season in NASCAR’s first road-course race, but Watkins Glen bares little resemblance to the California course.

There’s a longer straightaway here and it’s not nearly as technically difficult to get around. 

Kyle Busch is coming off of his sixth win of the season with a runner-up finish at New Hampshire the week before. Harvick took the win two weeks ago, and Truex was in the lead the week before that.

The Big 3 will look to continue their dominance at the GoBowling at the Glen at Watkins Glen on Sunday at 3 p.m. ET. The race can be seen on NBC.
