2017 Frontstretch Cup: I Love New York 355 at the Glen Predictions

Welcome to our 10th year of staff predictions! Each week, our experts attempt to tell you who the winner of each Cup race will be. Take a look to see who your favorite writers think will win it all (or at least score some points) this week!
Think you can out-prognosticate our staff?  Leave your picks in the comments and see how they stack up!

How we roll:
Each writer picks the drivers they they think will win the first two stages and the overall race.  We can’t pick the same driver two weeks in a row or more than four times in a season. The first two stages pay one bonus point, with three bonus points if someone can get all three winners correct.  Overall race points remain the same:

+3 – 2nd-5th
+1 – 6th-10th
0 – 11th-20th
-1 – 21st-30th
-2 – 31st-36th

    Amy Henderson stepped away from her bobble-head of Ryan Blaney look enough to bow down at the feet of Michael McDowell. (We don’t think he has a bobble-head.) In honor of Amy and Michael’s first weekend together, we are cheering for Michael to be “first car wrecked” at the Glen this afternoon. He deserves to be splat like a fly on a big swatter. Few of the never-has-beens, never-will-be’s are as obnoxious in getting in real drivers’ ways as McDowell, so let’s wish him a big juicy splat on the face! And Amy too!

    Every week when I read these, I realize how little it takes to be an “expert” these days. Even amateurs know you should never bet on the home team (or your personal favorite). But FS writers are an especially stupid brew of stew.

    Amy just farted. That was a bad one, Missy. McDowell is driving in the wrong series.
