 Alright, another week, another track, this week, we are goin' to the good ol' west at Texas, yeehaw! Matt Kenseth has been struggling, but now is his time to turn it around at one of his best tracks. Congratulations to Jimmie Johnson for winning the race and all 4 people that picked him. Also don't forget, Edwards swept this event last year. Now that we got all that out of the way, lets do some standings, and hope that Kurt Busch does good this week. Berlyn's pick was Clint Bowyer btw.

1.) Spikesgator- 375

2.) Mikeyfan + Bondkbond- 350

4.) Floridawhite- 336

5.) Uscfann + Chicagolaw- 335

7.) Plaid- 331

8.) Superjags- 308

9.) Roushfenwayguy- 295

10.) Edwardsfan + Fsu1dogs- 284

12.) Berlyn + Tenacfan- 283

14.) Tabasco Kat- 281

15.) Tigersman- 278

16.) M56nascar- 263

17.) Section- 239

18.) Bradman- 210

19.) Sford- 202

First off, let me say congratulations to pretty much everyone this week. Only 3 picks, including a random, were outside the top 7, and we have 8 people in the big 300 crew. Great job! Also congratulations to Spikesgator, he picked a 1st and a 2nd, becoming the first to do so, and just getting 1 shy of a perfect record. Not only that, but he is the first to get both lead the most lap drivers, and got the most points ever in this game to date, with a high lap to try and beat. Spikesgator will get the 10 points this week. And eliminated was Sford, the last inactive guy in the game, barely saving Bradman from a David Ragan pick. Leaving just 18 active people to fight it out. I'm hoping for the first perfect attendance this week.

Remember, the handicaps will be kept up until after race 10, where they will be reset, the handicap list will always be found on the week 6 roster, and if I remember, I will try to carry it out from week to week:

+10 handicap

Michael Waltrip

David Stremme

Bobby LaBonte

Marcos Ambrose

Casey Mears

David Ragan

Ryan Newman

Jaime McMurray

+20 handicap

Reed Sorenson

Robby Gordon

Mark Martin

Sam Hornish Jr.

John Andretti

Joey Logano

Scott Speed

Aric Almirola

+30 handicap

Anyone not in the top 35 after the first 5 races, some on the list including David Gilliland, Paul Menard, and Dave Blaney.

Also, I got the next bonus in, the challenge is to: From race 7 to race 10 (4 races), you must guess the person who takes away (if any) Jeff Gordon's point lead of almost 100 points. It probably won't happen, but that's what these bonuses are all about, finding that driver, of course, I'm aware only 10 or so drivers can be chosen pretty much, but I will accept it. The challenge is that it is THE FIRST PERSON to pass Jeff Gordon's points lead. I.E.- If Jeff Gordon crashes week 9, and Clint Bowyer passes him, then in week 10 Jeff wins to take the points lead back, all the people who picked Clint Bowyer will still get the points (of +10). Also, if multiple people pass Jeff Gordon, the bonus will go to whoever has the points lead the week Jeff Gordon loses it. My pick for this will be Jimmie Johnson with Texas up, and Martinsville dominance.

But here is where this week's picks will go, as real eliminations are about to begin! Remember points reset every 2 weeks, so everyone has 0 points right now (except for Spikesgator, he has 10 for winning the last session.)

Spikesgator- Carl Edwards (+10 on any pick)

Mikeyfan- Michael Waltrip (+10 handicap)

Bondkbond- Matt Kenseth

Floridawhite- Carl Edwards

Uscfann- Jimmie Johnson

Chicagolaw- Jimmie Johnson

Plaid- Jaime McMurray (+10 handicap)

Superjags- Greg Biffle

Roushfenwayguy- Jimmie Johnson

Edwardsfan- Carl Edwards

Fsu1dogs- Jeff Gordon

Berlyn- ???

Tenacfan- Tony Stewart

Tabasco Kat- Dale Earnhardt Jr. (random autopick)

Tigersman- Carl Edwards

M56nascar- Carl Edwards

Section- Denny Hamlin

Bradman- Matt Kenseth

Common Selections:

Carl Edwards- 5

Matt Kenseth- 2

Jimmie Johnson- 3

I was thinking of taking one of the "handicap" drivers just to make it interesting but I'll stick with a powerhouse.  Jimmie Johnson in the #48 Lowes Chevy.

I'd watch my silverware around this Fenway guy. A little on the shady side,lol

 

Super I wouldn't bring the women around him either from what i'm hearing, you know you can't trust a sox fan.  lol   m56 

 

 

Well sorry if a Red Sox fan never attacked a Yankees fan just for being a Yankees fan in a Massachusetts bar... Cool

(Some Yankees fans assaulted a Red Sox fan just for being one in a New York bar a few months ago.)

So if people shouldn't bring the women around me, I guess they should just keep all life away from you Tongue out.

I'll go with Matt Kenseth for the win. I'll also say Clint will take the points lead for the bonus.
