MICAH ROBERTS: Rain making things interesting in Texas - ReviewJournal.com New spoiler, new tire combination, and not much practice. What do you think, possible upset? Rain should also be considered in mix. We had two first time winners last year due to rain, maybe Paul Menard at 500 to 1 as someone who could fins himself in good position to stay out if rain comes out?
Greetings Trifecta players. This week, NASCAR motors in to Texas Motor Speedway. That means my beloved Tony is a mere 250 miles east of my house. That's not a big deal when you're talking about driving in Texas. The road is straight and flat, and besides, I know some farm to market roads that the Highway Patrol doesn't.
This week presents us with our second "Build Your Own" Trifecta of the season with races in Nationwide, Sprint Cup, F1, and IRL.
In the standings for the coveted Triple Lug Nut Trophy, we have a four way tie. Jon, Kristen, CR, and Hanny all have one win. Will this be the week that we have a repeat winner?

FOLKS TONIGHT VERY LATE, I RECIEVED WORD, LIKE I AM SURE MANY OF YOU DID, THAT VOLFAN'S FATHER -IN-LAW PASTED AWAY.
I KNOW WE ALL HAVE VERY BUSY SCHEDULES BUT CAN WE ALL TAKE JUST A MINUTE OR TWO TO HIT OUR KNEES AND SAY A LITTLE PRAY TO WHATEVER GREAT SPIRIT THAT YOU PUT YOUR FAITH IN TO HOLD THIS FAMILY IN HIS HAND.
