Hello, everybody! This week, we travel to two continents and three countries for the three races of the Trifecta.

First, we're in Chicago for the IRL race Saturday night- the green flag drops at 10:00pm ET.

After the Chicago race, we go to Europe for the Formula 1 Grand Prix of Belgium Sunday morning- the green flag drops at 8:00am ET.

Finally, we cross the Atlantic again for the NASCAR Nationwide race at Montreal Sunday afternoon- the green flag drops at 2:48pm ET.

The rules:

Choose one driver for each race. There are no restrictions on your choice of driver, but it is a good idea if your driver is going to run the race :o).

If you want to change your driver for a race, please leave a comment on this blog. You must make your change BEFORE the green flag drops for that race.

One last thing: During our stay in Canada, please look for William Wilman. We miss him!!!

Good luck to all!!!
