In the chase for the coveted Triple Lug Nut trophy, CR still leads the pack with 3 wins. Kristen, Jon, and moseby follow close behind with 2 wins each. Athens, SB, tez, and Hanny each have 1 win. As for Dwindy, well, we still have 18 more Trifectas on this season's schedule, so there's still time.
Some things to note as you make your picks-
Junior Nation will finally see its dream come true as Dale Jr. takes the wheel of the #3 in the Nationwide race. This race will also mark the debut of the new Nationwide COT. Let's hope it doesn't create the same problems as its Cup counterpart.
In Cup, this will be the first restrictor plate race with the spoiler instead of the wing.
Oh yeah, the Beagle will be aboard the winning Cup car.
So, on to the races-
1.) The NASCAR Nationwide Series race from Daytona, Friday July 2; green flag drops at 8:19pm ET (entry list)
2.) The NASCAR Sprint Cup Series race from Daytona, Saturday July 3; green flag drops at 7:49pm ET (entry list)
3.) The IRL race from Watkins Glen, Sunday July 4; green flag drops at 3:55pm ET (entry list)
So, there you go. Three up, three down. Everyone have a safe and Happy 4th. We are busy preparing for the neighbor's semi-annual war on trash. Maybe this will be the year that they finally launch the dumpster into orbit.
(One other thing, Tez won't be around this week, but he did send me picks via Facebook. He will start the race last.)
