Alright, well, if your Mikeyfan or Section, you already know everything that is going to be said here, but if you are not, this was by far, THE BEST...WEEK...EVER!!!! Every single person's pick, even the risky Greg Biffle, finished in the top 6, which will only mean trouble for those guys down in the back. Did JPM do bad enough with a 6th place to eliminate Tigersman, or will we see a person with a +10 handicap and a 2nd place, knock out a contentor? That's just what may happen when everyone runs so good, we can also rack up 4 people with more wins as it comes down to chase time.

1.) Tobasco Kat- 350

2.) Roushfenwayguy- 338

3.) Tenacfan2-         337

4.) Superjags-         319

5.) Bradman-          314

6.) Berlyn-              311

7.) Floridawhite-      304

8.) Section-            284

9.) Tigersman-       279

10.) Edwardsfan-     276

11.) Mikeyfan-         266

And look at that, if only Mikeyfan finished last segment with those +10 bonus points, he could have caused the first tie ever with Edwardsfan, a guy who picked the winner, however, Section, I think you should get a mulligan if your elimination race driver comes in second.  Tongue out
I thought about this, but really its hard to say as to if I can let this slide, and since everyone else did so good, I can't find a way to keep him in, sorry Mikeyfan, but the save remains the only way you can save yourself, you just got unlucky with the first week's pick. In other news, a big congratulations are in order for Tobasco Kat, the guy who didn't pick 1 person similar to another this whole segment, and ends up with his first win, being last in the avg. standings, way to go!

Clint Bowyer

Jeff Burton (bait for Berlyn possibly?)

Anyone below 38th!

Here is the win column, changed:

Superjags, Edwardsfan, and Roushfenway- 2

Mikeyfan, Section, Bradman, Tobasco Kat and Berlyn=1

Roushfenwayguy- 5.9 (1 win) (Moves down .4 due to 2rd place! Gets a winner, and moves ahead of Flroida.) (+1)
Floridawhite- 6 (Lost .1 due to the 7th place, but did get a winner. Got past, and he was leading for pretty much the whole thing.) (-1)
Superjags-  6.5 (1 win) (Got back .4 from last week.) (0)
Bradman-  7.1 (1 win) (Brought down .2 due to 5th place.) (0)
Berlyn- 7.3 (3 wins) (Moves down .1, but everyone else is moving down more, go for a 4th win, lol.) (0)
Tenacfan- 8.4 (1 win) (Moves down .5 due to runner, runner up!) (+1)
Section-  8.6 (1 win) (Moves down .1, but Tenacfan caught up.) (-1)
Edwardsfan- 9.3 (1 win) (Loses only .1, though he got next to last.) (0)
Tigersman-  9.6 (Moves down .1, slowly working on Edwardsfan.) (0)
Tobasco Kat- 10.7 (1 win)  (Moves down 1 whole point due to his first win!) (+1)
Mikeyfan- 10.8 (Eliminated) (First one to not lose avg. for being eliminated.) (-1)
 

Final list of bonuses:

RFG: JPM     Mikeyan: David R.    Floridawhite: David R.   Bradman: Kyle B.   Tigersman: Brain V.   Section: Kyle B.

I thought about taking a gamble and going with Kesolowski and +20 (I believe he's a Michigan boy) but I'm gonna jump on the Roush Fenway bandwagon and go with Matt Kenseth.

**Change**
After realizing that Carl Edwards would be the overwhelming favorite, I'd like to change to Greg Biffle. He had a dominant car here earlier this season except for the whole, running out of fuel thing.... =/

Bradman: Carl Edwards... Greg Biffle

Section, of course I'm trying to weasel my way back in.  I think I have a good point.  The chase has ten races therefore there should be 10 contestants. and the last one should be eliminated until after Richmond. Cry

Still trying to weasel your way back into the competition aren't you mikey? Face it, your chances of winning this thing were probably worse than the chances of Michael Waltrip actually winning a race. Wink

RFG - Should I get eliminated in this segment, I fully expect mikeyfan to take some shots at me. I always live by the motto, don't dish it out if you can't take it.

 RFG, Not to interfer again, but did you notice you are down to 10 contestants now?  With 3 more races to go before the chase.  You should take the total point for the last 5 races and eliminate one of us then.  That would leave 10 contestants for 10 races then have a total point outcome for the final 10 races.  The only difference is you can only pick a driver once during that 10 race period. 

Section,  Does the words "BITE ME" Mean anything to you?  LOL Tongue out

More bad Karma for me? Don't believe in it.
All I can say is that if you get eliminated this segment, I'm not going to hold Mikeyfan back from saying whatever he wants, lol.
