THe Trifecta- Dancing With The Cars Edition

Greetings, race fans. This week finds us in Texas for a little Texas Two Step with CWTS and IndyCar races, Pocono for a little Pennsylvania Polka with the Sprint Cup race, and Montreal to watch the F1 boys dance around the Circuit Gilles Villeneuve.

Some housekeeping befire we get to the races. Trifecta R&D has carefully examined Dwindy's Magic 8 ball and found it to be of standard issue with no modifications. We have also interviewed every Gypsy fortune teller in Dwindy's town and found nothing out of the ordinary. In fact, they envy his success rate for correct predictions. So, unless he is getting his information directly from the race teams, we can find nothing illegal. And Dwindy, if you do have Jimmie's horseshoe, PUT IT DOWN!!! You don't know where it's been.

IndyCar is giving us a real Texas two step this weeki, as they have divided the race into two shorter races. If you decide to choose IndyCAr as one of your races, you will pick ONE driver. You will be credited with that driver's BEST finish (Ex: Kristen picks Helio. He finishes 5th in the first race and 2nd in the second race. Kristen would be credited with the 2nd place finish). YOU MAY NOT CHANGE INDYCAR DRIVERS BETWEEN THE RACES.

Finally, Bev has withdrawn from the Trifecta. She is having trouble keeping up with everything without full internet access.

This week's line up: 1 Dwindy, 2 Hanny, 3 tez, 4 SB, 5 kristen , 6 CR, 7 jon, 8 moseby

Finally the races:

1.) The Camping World Truck Series race from Texas, Friday June 10; green flag drops at 9:19pm ET (entry list)

2.) The IndyCar race from Texas, Saturday June 11; green flag drops at 8:45pm ET.

3.) The F1 race from Montreal, Sunday June 11; green flag drops at 1:00pm ET.
