Alright, I got that tenacfan switched from Tony Stewart to Denny Hamlin (should have stayed with my pick.) And that bksballer89 joined with Dale Earnhardt Jr., and here are your results from week 1!

1.) Bondkbond- 190 points

2.) Floridawhite - 175 points

3.) Section 725 + Roushfenwayguy- 170 points

5.) Mikeyfan 1599- 166 points

6.) sfrye4585- 158 points

7.) plaid + bradman 125- 147

9.) berlyn + justgreat- 129

11.) sford 128- 124

12.) fsu1dogs- 120

13.) edwardsfan- 109


14.) Tabasco Kat + bksballer89- 87

16.) Tenacfan2- 85

17.) ynorocks- 81

18.) Chicagolaw21- 76

19.) m56nascar56- 70

20.) TigersMAN + bearthumb + uscfannnv- 50

There are your results for week one, remember after the second week, your 2 scores will be added, and the lowest will be eliminated.

A line has been put between the people above 100 and below, the people below 100 are considered "In Danger", and will have to work hard to stay alive.

Also, congradulations to bondkbond for being the only one who picked the winner, and Floridawhite and Mikeyfan for being true beneficiaries to the handicap game. Guess you won't get kicked off the first week Mikeyfan. Smile

Alright, and here is the bonus, from this week, choose who you think will not finish in the top 30 after the first 5 races that finished in the top 20 last year. Last year it was Jaime McMurray, but who will it be this year? For a list of who is eligible, either look for who is not in my handicap list, or look here http://www.cbssports.com/autoracing
/standings/CUP/2008
. If nobody finishes below there, then nobody gets the reward, the reward, is 10 points added to their segment 3 score.

Also, for the ones up top remember that if you are the ONLY winner for this segment, you get 10 bonus points for the next one.

And I decided to take out the week 2 joiners rule, we have 21, and now we will be locked, would be horrible if I gave someone Matt Kenseth as a random autopick. (Well, I gave the exception to uscfannnv, so sue me Tongue out. He got Kyle Busch anyway.)

And here is how the chase will work, if anyone is interested: The Chase will be split into 3 segments. Segment 1= races 1-2, 1 person eliminated. Segment 2= races 3-5, 3 people eliminated. Segment 3= races 6-10, the final 5 will compete for the championship.

Alright, I hope I got everything, here will be the picks for this week, remember, you can PST me your picks if you so desire.

1.) RoushFenwayGuy- Carl Edwards

2.) m56nascar56- Kyle Busch

3.) Section_725- Jimmie Johnson

I don't think any of the drivers will be below 30 but gotta pick someone.
Yes, it is true that it is unlikely to happen, but Jaime McMurray finished below the top 35 after the first 5 races. And Matt Kenseth struggled, so it is possible.

I will go with Jimmie Johnson this week, and pick Ryan Newman for the bonus thing. I don't think any of the drivers will be below 30 but gotta pick someone.

just making sure i get this straight, we can't pick the same driver in a given segment?Correct, so next week things reset. The Chase will be the only difference, as there will get a 3 race and 5 race segment to determine who wins.
