For the first time in... who knows how long, we have a winner this week, and it was the last place guy in the standings, Floridawhite, being the only one that picked Johnson, proving why he is on the top of the avg. standings. Great job to all those people that picked Tony as well, a 3rd place is nothing to be dissapointed about, and now, to the standings, oh and by the way, my driver eliminator this week finished second, so I know how to pick 'em, lol.:

1.) Berlyn- 320

2.) Tenacfan- 317

3.) Roushfenwayguy- 303

4.) Bradman- 299

5.) Tigersman- 293

6.) Edwardsfan- 291

7.) Section- 286

8.) Mikeyfan- 263

9.) Floridawhite- 254 (Even with the winner due to his bad week last week.)

10.) Tobasco Kat- 223

11.) Superjags- 212

12.) M56Nascar- 165 (Maybe you should have gone with the 34 point penalty...)

So the driver eliminator ended up taking someone out after all, as he was going to go with Gordon, however, he couldn't w/o encountering a 34 point penalty, so he took Kyle Busch, and he ended up crashing, being the death of M56 in this game, and saving Superjags from elimination. And in addition, Berlyn won her 3rd segment in this game! Something that nobody else has even accomplished 2 of, great job Berlyn! Here is the new eliminator list for this segment:

Superjags: Can't pick Jimmie Johnson this segment.
Tenacfan: Can't pick Jimmie Johnson this segment.

New handicap lists, though they didn't change drastically:

10 handicap: 16th through 23nd

Clint Bowyer

Jeff Burton (bait for Berlyn possibly?)

Dale Earnhardt Jr.

Jaime McMurray

Macros Ambrose

Casey Mears

Joey Logano

Kevin Harvick

+20 handicap: 24rd through 31th

Sam Hornish Jr.

Martin Truex Jr.

Reed Sorenson

Elliot Sadler

David Ragan

Bobby LaBonte

David Stremme

A.J. Allmendinger

(Brad Kesolowski whenever he races)

+25 handicap: 32st through 38th

Michael Watrip (more bait for Mikeyfan)

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, Floridawhite and Tenacfan- 2

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

Floridawhite- 5.9 (Lost .3 due to the 9th place, but did get a winner.) (0)
Roushfenwayguy- 6.3 (1 win) (Moves down .4 due to 3rd place!) (+1)
Superjags-  6.9 (1 win) (Lost .6 due to 11th place, ouch.) (-1)
Bradman-  7.3 (1 win) (Brought down .4 due to 4th place.) (0)
Berlyn- 7.4 (3 wins) (Moves down .7 due to unpresidented 3rd win!) (0)
Section-  8.7 (1 win) (Moves down .2, but Tenacfan is catching up.) (0)
Tenacfan- 8.9 (1 win) (Moves down .8 due to runner up!) (+1)
Edwardsfan- 9.2 (1 win) (Moves down .4 due to 6th place.) (-1)
Tigersman-  9.7 (Moves down .5 due to top 5.) (0)
M56Nascar-  10.6 (Eliminated) (Only loses .2, but its enough to get him eliminated.)    
Mikeyfan- 10.8 (Moves down .3 due to decent 8th place.)
Tobasco Kat- 11.7 (Moves down .2, he's going up! lol.)  

Alright, the new bonus for until the chase will be... picking the winner would only allow 3 people pretty much, so my challenge will be, guess who will get the final spot for the chase, 12th that is, if you get it right, you will get 20 bonus points, not just 10, for the first segment of the chase! This could be huge at such a drastic time, so this reward would be great for anyone to grab... as for my 12th place guy, I'm going to go with Juan Pablo Montoya, falling down a bit, but still staying in the chase, here is where picks will go for it, in a very cramped space...

RFG: JPM     Mikeyan: David R.    Floridawhite: David R.   Bradman: Kyle B.   Tigersman: Brain V.   Section: Kyle B.
And btw, you only have until the end of this week to make picks, don't want any minor sized advantage here.

Here is where this week's picks will go, as for me... at Pocono... I have to go with Kurt Busch:

Berlyn- Mark Martin (+10 on any pick)

Tenacfan- Jeff Gordon

Roushfenwayguy- Kurt Busch

Bradman- Jimmie Johnson

Tigersman- Jimmie Johnson

Edwardsfan- David Reutimann

Section- Tony Stewart

Mikeyfan- David Reutimann

Floridawhite- Carl Edwards

Tobasco Kat- Denny Hamlin

Superjags- Tony Stewart

Common Picks:

Jimmie Johnson- 2

Tony Stewart- 2

David Reutimann

RFG's Eliminator League Week 21

I will go with Tony this week, he won here earlier this year, and finished 2nd in this race last year.

As far as the guy who will finish 12th, hard to say, but let's go with Kyle Busch. He will do well, then struggle, but eventually just make the cutoff.

I usually don't pick the winner of the previous race but I think Jimmie will win 2 in a row.  Put me down for Jimmie Johnson!

Can't pick Tony or Jimmie so i will go with Jeff Gordon this week.

Technically, since this is a new segment, you can pick Tony, you just can't pick Jimmie, I willput down Jeff though.
