The Action This Weekend...

I don't know about anyone else, but I'm just not hyped for the race in Pocono. Is anyone? I think NASCAR kind of feels the same way, which is my this weekend the most-anticipated race will the one held in Montreal. For the first time, NASCAR ventures to Canada with the Busch Series to run the 2.71 mile Circuit Gilles Villeneuve road course. I think you get the feeling that a lot of guys would like to not lose any ground this weekend at Pocono and go on to Watkins Glen next week. That brings me back to Montreal - I'll give NASCAR credit, having this race followed next week with a Busch race at the Glen is pretty cool. Two straight road races on the schedule is a nice departure and it forces the teams to really concentrate on the nuances of road racing since they won't be able to just use a mulligan and go on the the next oval. In addition to the Busch cars, the GrandAm Rolex Series will also tackle the track for the first time. Also in action this weekend is the IRL at Michigan in what damn sure better not be a farewell to the track. Scott Dixon's been on fire and has methodically cut Dario Franchitti's points lead down to a manageable margin. For the first time in a long time, the Cup Series ranks probably third in order of races I'm looking forward to watching.

Posted are the first practice times at Montreal. Patrick Carpentier leads in the #22, with Scott Pruett, Boris Said, Ron Fellows, and Robby Gordon making up the top 5.

montreal could be interesting with so many road course ringers there and not as many cup guys....look for Fellows in the KHI car

Yeah, one of them will most likely win it... still debating who my pick will be, its between Carpentier, Pruett, Fellows and Robby. Also giving an outside shot at Carl. I added you to my blogroll by the way if you hadn't noticed.
