Sport Triple Truck Challenge Presented by Womply: Full schedule, how it works
Do Triple Doubles Matter?
Russell Westbrook is about to become the all-time leader in the much-rapped-about stat. But does it carry any real meaning? Clint Capela cannot forget the excitement of his first triple double. Granted it took place among the couch-cushioned confines of the Hawks center’s old apartment, and his opponents were the computer-controlled Hornets facing the Capela-controlled Thunder in NBA 2K14. But still, Capela, then a teenager coming up in France’s top pro league, found himself giddy when he reached double digits in three major stat categories as a digitized Russell Westbrook.
The Triple Truck Challenge Presented by Womply is back for a third season and it all kicks off this weekend at Darlington Raceway.
Now in its third season, “The Trip” consists of three consecutive NASCAR Camping World Truck Series races, beginning at the track “Too Tough to Tame” on Friday (7:30 p.m. ET on FS1), where drivers compete for an additional $50,000 bonus for winning the race. If a driver wins multiple events, the bonus money increases up to $500,000 for sweeping all three races. The Trip continues at Circuit of The Americas on Saturday, May 22 (1 p.m. ET on FS1) and concludes at Charlotte Motor Speedway on Friday, May 28 (8:30 p.m. ET on FS1).
Former Red Sox boss Lucchino heads to the minors with WooSox
WORCESTER, Mass. (AP) — Concrete is curing, saws are buzzing, and Larry Lucchino is at home again, in a ballpark. At an age when many ease into retirement, the 75-year-old three-time cancer survivor instead headed to the minor leagues for one more chance to run a baseball team and build it a new home. “I don’t think (retirement) is the way I’m wired,” Lucchino said this spring during an interview in the upper deck at the $118 million Polar Park. “I want to keep doing and being and making and contributing.
The program — like the — is designed to give attention to series regulars with added incentive given to race wins. The brainchild of NASCAR’s Vice President, Strategic Initiatives Ben Kennedy, “The Trip” debuted in 2019.
The first Triple Truck Challenge consisted of three consecutive races, held at Texas Motor Speedway, Iowa Speedway and World Wide Technology Raceway. Only drivers eligible for Truck Series points could be on the entry lists for those races. Greg Biffle came out of retirement to win the first Triple Truck Challenge event in 2019 at Texas, driving for Kyle Busch Motorsports. Other winners that year were Brett Moffitt at Iowa and Ross Chastain at WWTR.
The 2020 Triple Truck Challenge was originally scheduled to take place April 18 at Richmond Raceway, May 1 at Dover International Speedway and May 15 at Charlotte Motor Speedway, but it was rescheduled because of the COVID-19 outbreak and NASCAR’s subsequent pause from racing. The 2020 races were changed to the Daytona International Speedway Road Course, a rescheduled Dover date and one at WWTR. They were won by GMS Racing’s Sheldon Creed, Zane Smith, and Creed, respectively.
