This week the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series and Nationwide Series take to Dover International Speedway. After heading to the ‘The Magic Mile” last week, the Sprint Cup drivers have their work cut out for them at the “Monster Mile." As for the Nationwide Series, they had a week off and the drivers were able to relax a little bit before taking to the track. The Camping World Truck Series heads to Kentucky Speedway this weekend after being in New England last weekend.

The “Monster Mile” has a famed mascot, Miles the Monster. He is known to bite racecars and hoists the winning driver’s car after the race. Who will get the honor to be hoisted by Miles this weekend?

Dover International Speedway is a 1-mile oval with 24-degree banking in the turns and 9 degrees on the straightaways. Brakes are definitely going to be tested this weekend.

This is the second time in 2011 that the Camping World Truck Series heads to Kentucky Speedway. The track is a 1.5-mile tri-oval located in Sparta, Kentucky. The last time the boys were here, Kyle Busch won the race. Will another driver try to dethrone Kyle Busch Motorsports?

The following are the most recent winners at Dover and Kentucky:
