Spade Racing Picks: Uncle Max vs. Mystery Picker—Charlotte


Getting ready for my annual shore trip—starts this weekend and goes for (almost) the next two weeks!  I don’t take my duties as chief BBQ cook lightly—its all about having the right meats for the right people at the right times.  And yes, Karen, I *WILL* have some Boca burger patties on the grill this year.
Its a triple-header weekend for the racing world—Sunday is the high holy holiday for gear heads.  I’m not gonna lie—I barely follow anything outside of Nascar, but I’m cool with giving picks for Monaco (Charles Leclerc) and Indianapolis (Simon Pagenaud).  So enjoy the holiday weekend, and stay tuned—even being on vacation won’t stop me from delivering my picks!

CUP SERIES Coca-Cola 600: Mystery Picker picks Jimmie Johnson.  Favorite (3 wins): Kyle Busch—bouncing back from a rare crappy run at a 1.5 miler.  Next Favorite (1 win): Kevin Harvick—the long race allows him to balance out his pit crew’s miscues.  Dark Horse: Kyle Larson—and he won’t even need a qualifier race to make it.

XFINITY SERIES Alsco 300, the 2nd one (6 wins): Christopher Bell—how long till the “Bell to the 20 Cup car” rumors officially heat up?
