For M56 and Uscfann, you guys better be cowering in your boots, because of Truex's bad finish, just to come to a crapshoot where you can't predict well where everyone will finish, and Jeff Burton did pretty bad for Edwardsfan as well. Everyone else did decent- good this week. Obviously nobody got the winner, and nobody picked Jeff Gordon, but either him or Kurt should have won. Now we move to crapshoot Daytona, yay! Appreciate your leads if you have them, you may need them, and there is no safe limit at this place, make sure to pick wisely. Here is where even Brad or Joey could get their 2nd wins of the season. Anyway, to the standings:

1-2.) Floridawhite + Roushfenway- 170

3.) Superjags- 160 (can't use Stewart next segment either)

4-5.) Section + Berlyn- 146

6-8.) Tigerman, Tenacfan, and Tobasco Kat (The T Crew)- 148

9.) Bradman- 123

10.) Mikeyfan- 103

11.) Edwardsfan- 70

12-13.) M56Nascar + Uscfann- 62

Anyone below 38th!

Here is the win column, unchanged:

Superjags- 2

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

The driver eliminator driver this week... at Daytona, I almost decided to pick Kyle Busch, but he has been doing not so great recently, so I am going to make everyone regret not picking the runner up last week by making Jeff Gordon the driver eliminator for this week. Remember, if you pick Gordon, you can't pick him the following segment.

Here is where this week's picks will go, hard pick for me this week, so I will take a risk with Sam Hornish Jr., been hot recently, and he's coming to this track, and he has a nice handicap, and he's a Penske driver!:

Section_725- Clint Bowyer (+10 handicap)

Superjags- Carl Edwards

Edwardsfan- Jimmie Johnson

Floridawhite- Jeff Gordon (driver eliminator)

Bradman- David Ragan (+20 handicap)

Roushfenwayguy- Sam Hornish Jr. (+20 handicap)

M56Nascar- Jeff Gordon (driver eliminator)

Berlyn- Clint Bowyer (+10 handicap)

Tigersman- Dale Earnhardt Jr. (+10 handicap)

Tenacfan- Tony Stewart

Tobasco Kat- Dale Earnhardt Jr. (+10 handicap)

Mikeyfan- Michael Waltrip (+20 handicap) (are we really that surprised???)

Uscfannv- Dale Earnhardt Jr. (+10 handicap)

Common drivers:

Dale Earnhardt Jr.- 3

Jeff Gordon- 2 (Peope are taking the risk obviously.)

Clint Bowyer- 2

RFG's Eliminator League Week 18

Well, I've gone with this driver before, and it nearly bit me, and threw me away, but he was the quickest in first practice, needs a turnaround race, and though only raced here a few, he has had solid finishes. I'm gonna take David Ragan to get the win this week, and I could use the + 20 handicap...
Pencil it in, don't sharpie it though, I tend to flip flop with picks... =]
For Now..
Bradman ::: David Ragain(+20)

Mikey winning plus 20 ought to give me a good boost.
Not unless recent history changes. Here are mikey's stats the last 5 runnings of the Coke Zero 400. 2008 27th, 2007 N/A, 2006 38th, 2005 40th, 2004 13th. You gotta go all the way back to 04 to find a decent finish, mikey seems to get caught up in a wreck in the 2nd Daytona race.

For my choice, I will go with Clint Bowyer +10. Hopefully his recent history of 3 straight top 10 finishes will continue.
