Alright, here is the blog for this thing, starting off the NASCAR season finally!

Just pick a driver, don't pick him next week, that's all you have to know, also keep in mind that if you are the sole person in first, then you get a 10 point bonus for the next 2 week session! So try to win, just incase you pick crashing drivers for weeks 3 and 4.

For ties, I will explain them in depth when it first comes up. Here is the Handicap list again if you missed it:

+10 handicap

Bobby LaBonte

David Reutimann

Travis Kvapl

Elliot Sadler

Juan Pablo Montoya (road course exception)

Paul Menard

David Gilliland

Dave Blaney

A.J. Allmendinger

+20 handicap

Michael Waltrip

Scott Riggs

Reed Sorenson

Robby Gordon (road course exception)

Regan Smith

Sam Hornish Jr.

+30 handicap

(anyone not in the top 35)

(any full time drivers now not in the top 35 last year don't count for first 5 races, meaning Joey Logano, Aric Almirola, and others)

Here is where I will post Out in the Clear picks (at least for this week.) If someone PSTs me their pick, on my post, then I will put a ??? next to their name to confirm they made a pick.

1.) RoushFenwayGuy- Kevin Harvick

2.) m56nascar56- Jimmie Johnson

3.) Section_725- Kevin Harvick

4.) bondkbond- Matt Kenseth

5.) TigersMAN- Kyle Busch

6.) Floridawhite- A.J. Allmendinger (+10 handicap)

7.) Tenacfan2

8.) fsu1dogs- Mark Martin

9.) sfrye4585

10.) sford128

11.) edwardsfan99- Carl Edwards? (not confirmed)

12.) Tabasco Kat- Dale Earnhardt jr.

13.) ynorocks

14.) bearthumb

15.) plaid

16.) mikeyfan1599- Michael Waltrip (20 pt. handicap)

17.) Chicagolaw21- Kasey Kahne

18.) berlyn3014- Jeff Gordon

19.) Bradman 125- Tony Stewart

20.) Justgreat- Jeff Gordon

And one more thing, a bonus 10 points will go to whoever guesses which driver that isn't on a handicap list lands below 35th after 5 races, I will have this more clearly on my blog week 2, and choices for this bonus will be closed after the second week (so pretty much this is a heads up for you to think over it, you should probably wait to see who crashes in the 500 or does really bad and pick then.) Obviously, if there are more than 1, then more options could get the points, and if there are none, tough luck, no bonus, the bonus will be added in during Session 3, (Week 6).

I'm going to pick Kyle Busch, even though I don't care for him but I think he'll finish high, may even win it.
