Nascar Race Picks: Uncle Max vs. The Tarot Deck—Bristol

As we head into Bristol, we also head into the fall.  And while at my old job location that would mean dealing with a million questions about why we already had our holiday stuff up (we were the model store for the region, alright?), now it means getting READY for the holidays at work in September.  So the next time you hear from me I’ll be stuck putting up Christmas trees, garland, and window displays that have been gathering dust in the back room for the past nine months.

On the plus side, this distracts me from my terrible start to the year in my fantasy football league.  Yeah, it’s only one game, but I run the whole league—I’m supposed to be the best.  The comeback should be in effect this weekend (I’m playing the league’s newest/worst participant), but if not I could find myself doing worse there than I do in my Nascar picks this year.

Thursday Night TRUCK SERIES (2 wins) UNOH 200—Zane Smith—reminding everyone that he deserves a Cup ride in 2024—no, not the 51 car.

Friday Night XFINITY SERIES (2 wins) Food City 300: Dale Earnhardt Jr.—yeah it’s a wild pick, but anything can happen at Bristol.  Now watch him not qualify.

Saturday Night CUP SERIES Bass Pro Shops 500:  The Tarot Deck (1 win) selects the Three of Cups, 13th in points Martin Truex Jr.  FAVORITE: Kevin Harvick—who posts the feel-good win of the year?  “IT’S HARVICK!”. NEXT FAVORITE (1 win): Chris Buescher—hopefully this makes up for not picking him more-often.  DARK HORSE: Ty Gibbs—rookie spin, rookie win? updated four times weekly
