Greetings, race fans.We're a little later than usual getting this posted due to equipment upgrades(the Beagle got a new laptop, and we've been transferring files all day).
It's Trifecta time again, and time to see if anyone can rain on Dwindy's parade(we've got a 60% chance of severe thunderstorms here throughout the weekend).
Here's the scoop. Right now, Dwindy leads the chase for the Coveted Triple Lug Nut Trophy with 9 wins. In addition to that, he also leads the pack with 25 first place picks.
With 6 races left in the Trifecta season, Hanny, CR, SB, and Tez still have a shot at the title; however, it will take a run on the Trifecta that will make Jimmie's five straight championships look like a walk in the park. One of the aforementioned players will need to sweep the remaining 6 Trifectas, and either surpass Dwindy in first place picks OR win one week with a perfect score.
This week's starting line up:

A lot of fans' hopes and dreams were dashed Sunday when Jimmie Johnson finished second and jumped back up close to the top of the points standings. Here's more bad news for those fans: He's likely to stay up there. Click on the title for more from Monday Morning Crew Chief.
