The Trifecta- Back So Soon Edition

Greetings, race fans. Thanks to a 2 day delay at Atlanta, we are back. This weekend is a light schedule with races in Nationwide, Sprint Cup, and F1.

The overall standings in the Chase for the Coveted Triple Lug Nut Trophy (otherwise known as the Dwindy report) are as follows:

dwindy 9 0 23 8 11
Hanny 3 0 17 11 6
cr 3 0 14 13 5
SB 2 0 12 12 11
moseby 2 0 9 11 4
jon 2 0 7 7 8
kristen 1 1 9 9 4
Tez 1 0 12 9 2

Looks like several players are making gains against Dwindy in the stats but not in wins. There are still 10 more race weekends to work on that.

This week's starting lineup-
1 moseby 2 tez 3 CR 4 SB 5 Dwindy 6 kristen 7 jon 8 Hanny

And finally, the races:

1.) The NASCAR Nationwide Series race from Richmond, Friday September 9; green flag drops at 7:43pm ET (entry list).

2.) The NASCAR Sprint Cup Series race from Richmond, Saturday September 10; green flag drops at 7:43pm ET.

3.) The F1 Italian Grand Prix, Sunday September 11; green flag drops at 8:00am ET.

There you have it. Good luck and let's go racing!

The Rock finally back on a NASCAR schedule

Rejoice! Rockingham Speedway will host a NASCAR race in 2012. The truck series will visit next April. Man, it is good to have that track back. Click on the title for Monday Morning Crew Chief's thoughts.

About time!

Heck yeah!

SPEED TV will show both the Bathurst 1000 and the Gold Coast 600 races live...not 100% sure if it's starting this year or not but I am excited to be able to watch 'my' Daytona 500 live instead of a week later with the editors cramming six hours worth of race into a two hour time slot *laugh*
