What an odd weekend for NASCAR. It was fun, but maybe not for your fantasy team.The top two points earners Monday at Pocono, Chris Buescher and Regan Smith, cost just $5,400 and $5,500, respectively. Weather really shook up the lineup and made for a fun race, as drivers were fighting to be up front at any point, not knowing when the rain (or fog in this case) would roll in and end the race immediately.My top pick for the weekend started as Matt Kenseth, but after practices and qualifying morphed into fellow Toyota driver Martin Truex Jr. He looked strong early on, but after falling back to third due to pit strategy, he cut a tire and hit the wall. He only lost one lap -- until he cut another tire and hit the wall.Joey Logano, not on my pick list, then looked like the class of the field, but he wrecked racing for position with Chase Elliott.Lets move on to this weeks race at Watkins Glen. Its a road course located in my homeland of Upstate New York. Its the second of two such races this season, and even though the courses reward different techniques (Watkins Glen favors more aggressive driving, Sonoma is more about smoothness), you can usually tie in performance at each because of how different these tracks are compared to traditional oval speedway racing.Drivers tend to lead laps in chunks at Watkins Glen, but because the smaller number of laps run at the road courses, laps led and fastest laps are minimized. So concentrate much more on your start-finish differential and finishing position this week.Keep an especially close eye on track performance. Car strength is not as important here as at a track where speed and horsepower is key. Handling is important, but certain drivers just excel more at the road courses than others.Here are my picks to get you started this week. But check back after qualifying for my final picks and fades.Im starting my team withCarl Edwards isnt the first name you think of with road course specialists, but he led 24 laps at Sonoma earlier this year, second-best in the field, and had a leading 15 fastest laps, finishing fourth after starting from the pole.Now were coming to a track where hes never finished worse than 19th, and that was in his first race at the track. Since then hes had nine-straight top-15 finishes and has been eighth or better in each of the past three. Going back to 2009, only Marcos Ambrose averages more fantasy points per race than Edwards, and Ambrose wont be in the field this weekend.Keep an eye on these fourKevin Harvick: Another driver youd consider having on your roster week-to-week, but dont ignore him on the road course. Harvick has finished seventh or better in the past four road course events, and actually hasnt finished one outside the top 20 since 2009. In the 13 road course events since then, hes only once been held under 30 points.Tony Stewart: I make this pick hoping Stewart is returning to the form that saw him finish in the top two seven times in an eight-race span at Watkins Glen from 2002 to 2009, with five wins. Since then, hes struggled, not running the race in 2013 or 2014. Last year, he had a mechanical failure and finished 43rd. This season, though, Stewart has four top-five and six top-10 finishes in 13 races. From 2014 to 2015, he had three top-five and 10 top-10 finishes in 69 races.AJ Allmendinger: The Dinger is a good example of a driver who tends to excel at one road course but not the other. Last year he led 21 laps at Watkins Glen but finished 24th. The year before that, he won here. Hes finished 37th in the past two Sonoma races. For his career, he averages 38.0 fantasy points per race at Watkins Glen, and 18.3 at Sonoma.Casey Mears: Make sure youre on a cheap option like Mears if he qualifies deep in the field. In the past eight Watkins Glen races, Mears has finished in the top-20 eight times, but in seven of those, he moved up from his starting position. Hes averaging a gain of 7.6 spots from his starting position in those races, giving him 35.5 points per race.Thats all I have for you this week. Since were traveling to my neck of the woods, make sure you get yourself some spiedies this weekend. Look it up, and thank me later.

NEW YORK -- Nick Kyrgios already was flexing his right hip before a game late in the first set of his third-round match at the U.S. Open. Then came a wild point that ended with him skidding to a stop on his knees on the sideline.Not long after that, the 14th-seeded Kyrgios again tried to stretch out his hip, before taking a medical timeout for help from a trainer. Soon enough, he was barely moving during points. Eventually, Kyrgios stopped while trailing 4-6, 6-4, 6-1 on Saturday night, allowing 63rd-ranked Illya Marchenko of Ukraine to reach the fourth round at a Grand Slam tournament for the first time.Its round of 16! Marchenko exclaimed to the Arthur Ashe Stadium crowd during an on-court interview. Oh, my God!Marchenko will face two-time major champion and No. 3 seed Stan Wawrinka next.Kyrgios dealt with a hip injury earlier this season and showed signs of trouble after only nine games Saturday, even as he played a calm, patient brand of baseline tennis that hes not necessarily known for. At 2-all in the second set, he sprinted forward to get to a sharply angled shot by Marchenko, reaching out to barely lift the ball back over the net for a backspin-filled winner.dddddddddddd But Kyrgios momentum nearly carried him all the way to the chair umpires stand and he went down to the ground, skinning his left knee and drawing a bit of blood.After getting broken to trail 5-4 in the second set, Kyrgios flexed that hip again. When that set ended, Kyrgios headed to the locker room with a trainer. But things didnt improve. He spent much of the third set barely moving between points, calling for the trainer, cursing, and, at one point, muttering that he felt as if hed been hit by a bus.Down 4-1 in the third, Kyrgios sat down gingerly in his changeover seat, covered his face with a white towel while speaking to the trainer, and then appeared on the verge of tears.A couple of games later, he quit.Well, Im a little bit shocked right now, said Marchenko, whose red shirt was decorated with white skulls and stars. Im really sorry for Nick. I didnt want to win this way. ... A win is a win.---Follow Howard Fendrich on Twitter at http://twitter.com/HowardFendrich(backslash) Cheap Nike NFL Jerseys Cheap Adidas Hockey Jerseys Wholesale Nike Baseball Jerseys Wholesale Jerseys From China Wholesale Jerseys China Wholesale NFL Jerseys China Cheap Nike NFL Jerseys Free Shipping Cheap Nike NBA Jerseys Authentic Cheap NHL Jerseys Canada Cheap Nike MLB Jerseys Cheap Soccer Jerseys China NCAA Jerseys Cheap Nike NHL Jerseys China Wholesale Jerseys China Cheap Jerseys Store Cheap Football Jerseys Store Wholesale Soccer Jerseys Jerseys NCAA China Jerseys NFL Cheap Cheap Nike NBA Jerseys ' ' '
