Hey y'all, got the combo race thread happening today. I thought it would be cool to combine the threads today and make it one great big happy party!

The truck race is in Michigan while the Nationwide race is in Montreal on yet another road course, not that I'm complaining as I'm liking the fact that Nationwide has three road courses on their schedule.

My favorites to win today?

In trucks, look for Coulter, Piquet Jr., and Busch to have good runs and it wouldn't surprise me if all three were to be fighting for the lead at the end of it.

In Nationwide, umm ... might be a little biased here, but anyone Canadian. Oh, and maybe Busch. Look for strong runs from Sadler, Stenhouse, Hornish Jr. and yep, you guessed it, Danica Patrick too.

No starting line-ups after the jump. It is what it is. Suffice it to say everyone entered in the truck race will qualify for the race and Ryan Ellis (not the NHL guy) didn't make the Nationwide race.

I'll be in and out most of the day, see you in the comments!
