First leg of unofficial Bullring Triple Crown is Sunday night

June 24, 2011 2 Comments

Sunday night’s midseason championship races — barring another flood, of course — always represent the first leg of the unofficial Bullring Triple Crown, which equates winning the midseason and season championship races, plus the track points championship. It’s a tough task to accomplish and only a few have managed to turn the trick since 1992, which is as far back as I have records for the midseason and season championship races.

Here’s a look at the midsseason champion and Triple Crown winners:

    Will they still call it mid season championships if they have to run it on Tuesday night? Looks like that might be highly likely this week,because it is the weekend,and if it’s the weekend,it will be raining!! hope the weather man is wrong,but if he is right,looks like another Sunday night at home.

    Stevie,I have 2 suggestions for you.

    1) change your name to stevie Mud because there is hardly ever dirt at the track anymore these days.
    2)Make a suggestion to QR track management to dig a mud pit in the infield and on Sunday nights when it is too muddy to race cars,they can have Mud drags with trucks!! that way the track can stay afloat and not go under because of all the rain outs this year!!LOL
