Greetings race fans! This week the Trifecta returns to the scene of NASCAR's greatest crime(other than the S&P drivers, but that's another story)- Michigan International Speedway. Yes, folks, it was exactly one year ago that the priceless Maltese Lug Nut mysteriously disappeared from the garages of Roush/Fenway Racing.
Now, NASCAR has gone and thrown us a curve this week. The Camping World Truck Series will not return to the track until Wednesday, August 19, so rather than have everyone wait 3 days to finish the trifecta, I've come up with something a little different.
For this week's Trifecta:
Pick one driver for the Nationwide Race.
Pick a driver for the pole of the Sprint Cup race. This will be scored according to qualifying position(if the driver you pick wins the pole, you get 1 point; if he qualifies 10th, you get 10 points; if he qualifies last, well, you get the idea).
Finally, pick a driver for the Sprint Cup race.
NOTE: YOU DO NOT HAVE TO PICK THE SAME DRIVER FOR THE POLE AND THE SPRINT CUP RACE.
Next week at Bristol, we'll be back to the usual format(except that the Trifecta will be up on Tuesday to accommodate the Wednesday CWTS Race).
Oh, one last thing. Tell me where you think the Maltese Lug Nut is.
Good luck, and let's go racing!!!!!
