Alright, another segment another elimination, but it shouldn't take you long at all to find out who got eliminated... no its not Tobasco Kat, who got saved by Ryan Newman as an autopick, and stays in this game... for another week... again... I hope he comes back to make picks, as well as berlyn, or else they could be leaving. Tobasco Kat is the biggest underdog by far in this competition, always doing horrible in the first race but redeeming himself in the 2nd race, even though it was random, most of the others were not, so nice job lasting this long. We also should say sorry to those who picked Kurt Busch and Denny Hamlin, they were front runners who got taken out due to stupid problems. Now... lets get to those standings. Also, we had Bradman and Tenacfan get the winner, finally ending our winless streak drought, good job everyone, and now to the standings.

1.) Bradman- 360 (highest scores both weeks, amazing this segment, and deserves the +10.)

2.) Floridawhite- 293

3.) Tenacfan- 284 (From 12th to 3rd with win.)

4.) Uscfann- 274 (Also made a big leap.)

5.) Edwardsfan- 265

6.) Fsu1dogs- 262

7-8.) Mikeyfan + Section- 245

9.) Tobasco Kat- 230

10.) Berlyn- 228

11.) Roushfenway- 199

12-13.) M56Nascar + Tigersman- 191

14.) Superjags- 178

15.) Bondkbond- 142

Well, Bradman just ran away with this session, winning by a whopping 67 points over Floridawhite. Bondkbond just missed 1 week, and got what looked like a good random pick, but missing just 1 week really sent him to the end of his rope, he will leave us this time, and hopefully will give a message to Tobasco and Berlyn, that if your not going to be here, do what Tenacfan did, use Smokinstewart14 to tell me your pick, lol. Only 1 more week to take advantage of both the +15 handicap game, which everyone wised up last week and didn't pick Kyle Busch who finished 22nd, and the handicap lists before they reset.


Handicap lists will be shown again:
+10 handicap (can't get these to heading 2 w/o making the rest of the text heading 2, dunno why...)

Martin Truex Jr.

Reed Sorenson

Kevin Harvick (he might be the new prime pick)

Michael Waltrip

Jaime Mcmurray

David Ragan

David Stremme

A.J. Allmendiger

+20 handicap

Elliot Sadler

Sam Hornish Jr.

Bobby LaBonte

Joey Logano

Paul Menard

Robby Gordon

John Andretti

+30 handicap

Anyone not in the top 35 after 15 races, including Scott Speed and Brad Kesolowski


Here is the win column, CHANGED!!!

Fsu1dogs- 3

Bondkbond Superjags- 2

M56nascar, Mikeyfan, Floridawhite, Edwardsfan, Roushfenway, Uscfannv, Section, Bradman, Tenacfan and Berlyn=1

So the only 2 left in the game without a winner are Tigersman and Tobasco Kat, keep on trying, Bradman and Tenacfan both got their first ones this week, hopefully you guys can too this week.

For the final bonus pick, I decided to go for... I already used Hamlin... so my next target will be an RCR driver, they struggle here pretty bad, and during this season, however, to make things fair, and since I can't use Harvick, I will go with the best RCR driver here, Jeff Burton... still, he is winless here, maybe if Berlyn comes back she will take the +15 handicap risk.

Here is the avg. finish column: (#)= how many pos. you moved up/down if its -

Floridawhite- 5.7 (further increases his best avg. cushion, with a 2nd, and me going down.) (0)
Uscfannv-  6.4 (5 consecutive top 5s, how does he do it!?!?!) (likely to pounce if Florida makes a mistake) (+2)
Roushfenwayguy- 7.1 (1 win) (suffers from his favorite driver) (-1)
Fsu1dogs-  7.6 (1 win) (+2)
Superjags-  8 (really suffers from Kurt) (-2)
Bondkbond-  8.3 (suffers the most from Kurt) (eliminated) (had 1 win) (-1)
Berlyn- 8.4 (first with 2 wins still) (0)
Bradman-  8.6 (closes the gap on Berlyn with win) (1 win) (0)
Section-  10.1 (made the most of Tigers/M56's Hamlin picks) (+2)
Tigersman-  10.6 (-1)
Tenacfan- 10.7 (uses Stewart to propel himself up in the standings.) (best finish 3rd, got 3rd most recently)
M56Nascar-  10.7 (-2) (best finish 3rd, gave draw to Tenacfan)
Mikeyfan- 11 (closes the gap to gain another pos., after losing one that is.) (-1)
Edwardsfan- 11.1 (moves avg. up over 1 point, still gained nothing though) (0)
Tobasco Kat- 12.4 (He did move his average up!) (0)

(Does this thing have any importance other than to see how good you have done overall, time says no, but there is lots of time to go around)

My Pick this week... I'll go with Carl Edwards after his run at Pocono and considering how good he does here, I finally can see a turnaround around the corner.

Bradman- Matt Kenseth (+10 on any pick)

Floridawhite- Carl Edwards

Tenacfan- Ryan Newman

Uscfann- Jimmie Johnson

Edwardsfan- Carl Edwards
 
Fsu1dogs- Kyle Busch

Mikeyfan- Matt Kenseth

Section- Carl Edwards

Tobasco Kat- 

Berlyn- Jeff Burton (+15 handicap)

Roushfenway- Carl Edwards

M56Nascar- Jeff Burton (+15 handicap)

Tigersman- Sam Hornish Jr. (+20 handicap)

Superjags- Carl Edwards

Common Picks:

Carl Edwards: 5
Jeff Burton: 2
Matt Kenseth: 2
