NASCAR At Watkins Glen 2012: Race Preview, TV Info And More

NASCAR Sprint Cup comes to Watkins Glen Sunday with the running of the Finger Lakes 355, and there are a number of drivers to keep an eye on. Dale Earnhardt Jr. stayed at the top of the Sprint Cup points standings for the second consecutive week, but his edge over second-ranked Matt Kenseth dropped from 14 to just five points, and it went from 22 to six points over third-ranked Greg Biffle after Sunday's race at Pocono.

Jimmie Johnson was in fourth place for the fourth straight week after the rain-shortened race at Pocono. Johnson trails Earnhardt, his Motorsports teammate, by just eight points and third-ranked Greg Biffle by two points while leading fifth-ranked Martin Truex Jr. by a hefty 42 points.

Also look out for Clint Bower, Tony Stewart and Greg Biffle. The race will be shown on ESPN at 1:19 p.m. You can view a full list of the results at NASCAR.com
