Nascar Pick Challenge: Uncle Max vs. Mystery Picker—PIP (Pocono, Iowa, Pocono)

OK, I’m just gonna ask it—who exactly is “Mystery Picker”?
I mean, I can’t make heads or tails of their picks this year.  Really—Alex Bowman?  When you can pick anybody else, you pick ALEX BOWMAN?  In a Chevy?!?  Who the heck can it be?  My nephew Mike has refused to tell me who it is, so who’s YOUR guess, dear readers?  Some sort of Nascar insider?  A gambling expert from overseas?  My ex-wife?  Give me some of YOUR ideas, because I’m fresh out of them.

Truck Series Gander Outdoors 150 (3 wins)—Johnny Sauter—old reliable comes through in the mountains.

Xfinity Series US Cellular 250 (3 wins)—Elliott Sadler—another old reliable comes through on the plains.

Cup Series Gander Outdoors 400—MYSTERY PICKER (4 wins) PICKS Alex Bowman.  Favorite (3 wins): Kyle Busch—rebound weekend!  Next Favorite (3 wins): Denny Hamlin—time to remind people that there’s more than just Rowdy at JGR.  Dark Horse: Aric Almirola—A2 finally breaks through.
