Kansas Race Picks: Uncle Max vs. 13th Place

Ah, Kansas—a state, a band, and a track.  And while I don’t have much to say about the American prog rock group, the state has been in the news a bit lately with the whole “luring the Chiefs and Royals across state lines” attempt.

Now, this may come as a surprise to some of you, but despite being a lifelong sports fan, I do not support cities and states giving out hundreds of millions of dollars to build stadiums and arenas.  The way I see it, if you can’t win because you “don’t have a nice enough home field/court/rink”, maybe you’re just not that great of a team owner to begin with.

Heck—if it were up to me, one cent of every dollar bet on a team would go towards the team specifically for facility construction.  That way the only money going towards them is from (in theory) their fans.  But what would a retail assistant manager know?

XFINITY SERIES (3 wins) off 

Sunday CUP SERIES Wurth 500: 13th Place Picks DEREK KRAUS (in place of AJ Allmendinger).  FAVORITE (1 win): CHASE ELLIOTT—sticking with Chase, even though Dover and Kansas have nothing in common…  NEXT FAVORITE: DENNY HAMLIN--…despite the fact that its a track where Hendrick or Gibbs cars are likely to dominate…  DARK HORSE: BUBBA WALLACE—…or a satellite team.
