Alright, another week, another win for Mark Martin, and another week where nobody picked the winner. We will now have a week break, then get back in to Indy... and w/o Mikeyfan... I have a feeling it will be a quiet... week... oh well... I'll try to start making more posts like I used to a while ago during this week break. So obviously you have 2 weeks to make your picks before one of the biggest events, with one of the hottest drivers there, Tony Stewart, on a roll. Also, we only had 1 person get a top 5 finish this week, woot for me! Anyway, here are the standings:

1.) Roushfenwayguy- 165

2.) Bradman- 161 (Nice time to pick Vickers)

3.) Berlyn- 150

4-5.) Tenacfan + Superjags- 147

6.) Tigersman- 123 (Well, I guess that is the power of +20 handicaps.)

7-8.) Mikeyfan + Edwardsfan- 121

9-10.) Section + M56Nascar- 116

11.) Tobasco Kat- 112

12.) Floridawhite- 64

First Florida, before you start to panic, let me quote something from 2 weeks ago:

In addition, I am revealing my rule, "the save", which the save, which I have been hinting at, will save someone from leaving the game if they are in the top 3 AFTER avg. finishes for the lastest segment have been accumulated, that was the reason why I started doing them in the first place, and 2 people will be eliminated in the first round of the chase instead of 1 should the rule come around.Due to your first place avg. of 5.6, and Bradman's 4th place avg. of 7.7, it is technically impossible for you to go below 3rd place with your avg., even if you lose this week, therefore, you will get the save if you do lose this week, which seems likely, but not definite... so try to make a pick that will really rebound you, but if it doesn't work, you will still stay in the game, there will just be more competition during the first leg of the chase segmet.

10 handicap: 16th through 23nd

Clint Bowyer

Brian Vickers

Dale Earnhardt Jr.

Jaime McMurray

Macros Ambrose

Casey Mears

Martin Truex Jr.

Kevin Harvick

+20 handicap: 24rd through 31th

Sam Hornish Jr.

Joey Logano

Reed Sorenson

Elliot Sadler

David Ragan

Bobby LaBonte

Michael Waltrip

A.J. Allmendinger

(Brad Kesolowski whenever he races)

+25 handicap: 32st through 38th

David Stremme

Paul Menard

Robby Gordon

Scott Speed

John Andretti

David Gilliland

Regan Smith

+34 handicap (picked 2x in a session will make +0 2nd time)

Anyone below 38th!

Here is the win column, changed:

Superjags and Tenacfan- 2

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

Before I give out the driver eliminator for this week, I am putting up the list that will tell from last segment who can't pick whom:

Superjags- Can't pick Tony Stewart for Indianapolis.

M56Nascar- Can't pick Jeff Gordon for Indianapolis.

Floridawhite- Can't pick Jeff Gordon for Indianapolis.

Well, in reality, you can pick these guys if you really feel safe with them, but you will induct the 34 point penatly, that's a big risk...

The driver eliminator for this week... I can't pick Stewart... can't pick Johnson.. can't pick Gordon... Kyle Busch is struggling royally... heck, I'll just choose the winner from last race, Mark Martin... if you pick Martin, you can't use him next segment.

Here is where picks will go, I already used Stewart... so lets go with Jeff Gordon.

Tenacfan- Tony Stewart

Superjags- Dale Earnhardt Jr. (+10 handicap) (random autopick)

Bradman- Jeff Gordon

Roushfenway- Jeff Gordon

Floridawhite- Jimmie Johnson

Edwardsfan- Tony Stewart

Section- Tony Stewart

Berlyn- Tony Stewart

Tigersman- Tony Stewart

Tobasco- David Ragan (+20 handicap) (random autopick)

Mikeyfan- David Reutimann

M56Nascar- Kyle Busch

Common Drivers:

Tony Stewart: 5

David Reutimann ran well at Pocono so I'm going to say David wins the Brickyard, pushing himself into the chase and Giving MWR there second win of the season.

RFG's Eliminator League Week 20

I was on vacation last week, on the Delaware shore, sunning on the beach.  Thanks for picking Mikey for me RFG.  I wouldn't have picked him but it turned out to be a good pick, with the +20.  At the Brickyard, I'll take Tony Stewart.
