The Trifecta- It's My Birthday And I'll Bark If I Want To Edition

Greetings, race fans. Yes, the 2012 Trifecta season is finally here. The rules are simple: pick the driver you think will win in each of the three races. Points are based on how they finish- 1point for 1st, 2 points for 2nd, etc.- and the player with the LOWEST score wins.

The starting lineup for this week will be determined by first come, first post.

If you want to change a driver in a race after you make your initial picks, that change MUST be made 30 minutes prior to the posted green flag start of that race. There is no penalty for changing drivers.

Unlike NASCAR, we go for wins here. Trifecta central will notify you either here or by Facebook message, if you need to change a driver to go for a win.

This week's races:

1.) The Camping World Truck Series race from Daytona, Friday February 24; green flag drops at 7:52pm ET (entry list)

2.) The Nationwide Series race from Daytona, Saturday February 25; green flag drops at 1:34pm ET (entry list)

3.) The Sprint Cup Series race from Daytona, Sunday February 26; green flag drops at 1:30pm ET.

*For CWTS and NNS races, please check the entry lists to ensure that your choice of driver is entered.*

You may post your picks here or on the Lug-Nuts Facebook page. Results will be posted after each race.

As always, if you have any questions, feel free to ask.

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