Greetings, race fans!
This week marks the last Saturday night race of the 2009 season. ABC will be airing regional coverage of College Football which may or may not delay the start of the race telecast; however, looking at the schedule, none of the games look to be that close.
This week's Trifecta comes to you from Charlotte, North Carolina, where it's currently raining. Qualifying is at 7pm ET tonight; there's a 60% chance of continued precip, so expect the field to be set by points. The Weather Channel says that the rain should clear out in time for Friday night's Nationwide race as well as Saturday night's Cup race.
Following Saturday night's Cup race, we'll be jetting off to sunny Sao Paolo, Brazil for the F1 Brazilian Grand Prix.
1,) The NASCAR Nationwide Series race from Charlotte, Friday 10/16; green flag drops at 8:16pm ET. NOTE: You may not pick the same driver for both the Nationwide and Cup races.
2.) The NASCAR Sprint Cup Series race from Charlotte, Saturday 10/17; green flag drops at 7:41pm ET.
3.) The F1 Brazilian Grand Prix from Sao Paolo, Brazil, Sunday 10/18; green flag drops at 12:00pm ET
Players, pick your drivers and let's go racing!
