The Trifecta- We Interrupt This Blog Edition

Greetings, race fans. This week's Trifecta comes early to accommodate the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series race on Wednesday night.

This week provides another opportunity for Hanny to capture the elusive Kylefecta.

(Sorry about that, race fans. Unfortunately as the Trifecta was heading to post, Katie- our intrepid news hound- uncovered some disturbing news from the Duncan yo-yo factory.)

Now on to the races:

1.) The NASCAR Camping World Truck Series race from Bristol, Wednesday August 18; green flag drops at 8:16pm ET (entry list)

2.) The NASCAR Nationwide Series race from Bristol; Friday August 20; green flag drops at 8:13pm ET (entry list)

3.) The NASCAR Sprint Cup Series race from Bristol, Saturday August 21; green flag drops at 7:43pm ET (entry list)

4.) The IRL race from Sonoma, Sunday August 22; green flag drops at 5:50pm ET

I will get the entry list up for the IRL race as soon as it becomes available.

Good luck and let's go racing,


  1. I will take KYLE across the board, please!

  2. Trucks- Kyle
    NNWS- Harvick
    Indy- Dario

  3. CR- check the entry list. E-Sad is in the #33 for KHI this weekend.

  4. Oh thanks! I'll take Cuzn' Carl then.

  5. Okie Dokie...

    Trucks - Almirola
    NW ----- Kahne
    Cup----- Hamlin

    Thanks Ms. SB!

  6. Way too early in the week to be making picks...lets see who I can jinx this week!

    NW - JUNYER! =)
    Cup - KURT !!
    IRL - HELIO !!!

    Look its all my favs...probably will be my worst Trifecta ever!

  7. Too bad there is no Kevfecta for me this week. So without further adieu, here are my picks:

    Trucks--Austin Dillon

    NNS--Elliott Sadler (seems every time he drives for Kevin, he either wins or does very well)

    Cup--Who else? Happy all the way!!

  8. Trucks - Timothy Peters

    will pick the others later in the week, lol

  9. Nationwide - Kyle
    Cup - Kurt
    IRL - Power

    Congrats to Hanny for last week's win. I missed it by that much.....

  10. Athens-

    Hanny got his picks for the Kylefecta in first, so the tie-breaker would go to him.

    The Beagle picks-

    Trucks- Kyle

    Nationwide- Brad K

    Cup- Jeffie G

  11. Truck - Dillon

    NW - Joey

    Cup - Jamie

  12. looks like I'll be changing my pick....thanks, Bonehead, uh, ESad, slip of the keyboard there.

  13. 8th...so with the penalty, I'd have to pick top 3 the rest of the way....*sigh* I won't bother.

  14. With everyone having one race complete:

    hanny 1
    cr 1
    moseby 1
    sb 1
    dwindy 2
    klv 4
    tez 8
    jon 17
    athens 17

  15. I was afraid of Kahne... I'll take the penalty and replace the NW race with Will Power in the Indycars Sonoma run if that's permissable SB... If not then oh well...


  16. Dwindy, change noted. I figured you'd probably make the switch when I saw Kasey do his "wall walking" act.

    Of course, it will be a moot point if Hanny pulls off the Kylefecta tomorrow night.

  17. I'll take the gamble....Cup - Kyle Busch.

  18. With everyone having completed two races:

    hanny 2
    cr 6
    moseby 10
    klv 13
    sb 15
    jon 20
    tez 22
    athens 27
    dwindy 41

    The results of the IRL race are moot since Hanny has captured the elusive "Kylefecta", giving Hanny his second straight win and our second perfect score of the season.

  19. yep, congrats to Hanny for that stirring effort....wait a minute, Hanny did squat, it was all Kyle and his crew :P

    I'll dump my NW race and go with Dixon tomorrow anyway, lol

  20. What's that about the old blind squirrel? Not this time... That if and when I win!

    WTG Gene!

  21. Official final results-

    hanny 3
    cr 9
    moseby 11
    tez 16
    klv 18
    sb 26
    athens 30
    jon 34
    dwindy 42

  22. Thanks again to the crew, and all the boys back at the shop. And, thanks to my driver in all three races!

    And thanks to the Beagle for putting this up week after week!
