Great championship battle reaches climax

The last race of the season is usually just a formality to crown a champion, even in the Chase era, but that likely won't be the case this time. Click on the title for more from Monday Morning Crew Chief.

The Trifecta- It All Comes Down To This Edition

Greetings, race fans and welcome to the final Trifecta of the 2011 season. NASCAR has finally gotten what it wanted when they came up with the Chase; unfortunately for the Trifecta, there's no such drama here. Dwindy seized control of the standings early in the season (despite his protestations that he didn't have a chance) and claimed the Coveted Triple Lug Nut Trophy in mid October.

We still have a three way tie between Tez, Hanny, and Dwindy for the most pathetic score of the season- 68. Again, if you would like to go for that trophy, you may only use ONE start and park (or wreck) driver.

This week's line up: jon moseby Hanny Dwindy SB CR tez kristen

This weeks races:

1.) The NASCAR Camping World Truck Series Race, Friday November 18; green flag drops at 8:18pm ET (entry list)

2.) The NASCAR Nationwide Series Race, Saturday November 19; green flag drops at 4:45pm ET (entry list)

3.) The NASCAR Sprint Cup Series Race, Sunday November 20; green flag drops at 3:15pm ET.

There you have it. Please check the entry lists for Trucks and Nationwide to make sure that your driver pick IS racing this weekend.

Good luck, and let's go racing!!!

Johnson officially eliminated, but recent performances should be his main concern

How obvious is obvious?

NASCAR re-blurs line for aggressive-driving penalties

NASCAR President Mike Helton said Kyle Busch had crossed a line at Texas that warrented penalties. Brian Vickers did nearly the same thing, albeit under green, and got off free. Where is that line again? Click on the title for more from Monday Morning Crew Chief.
