3 more races until the chase, 2 more eliminations, 1 this week.... getting very close.... and we will have a week off before out final session to the chase just to increase the tension. So I may as well say, that note that there will be special variations to the chase, what they are, nobody knows... but it will make things more interesting, plus with it I'm trying to devise a plan to make things a bit easier for Talladega so that it doesn't wipe out people right off the bat. Anyway, nobody picked the winner, and who got first this week, Tobasco Kat... again... with a +20 handicap on Jr. (actually +10, but he got +10 from last segment.) Could Tobasco move from being last in the overall avg., barely holding on week after week, to getting 2 segment wins in a row? We will have to wait and see at Bristol, now, here are the standings, and I'm sorry to all you people that lost Jimmie due to feul, as well as Martin, now you will have to race to survive, hey, but that's the way the cookie crumbles sometimes.

1.) Tobasco Kat-                     190 (Got the same amount of points as the winner, so much for getting bit in the butt.)

2-3.) Roushfenway/Edwardsfan- 165

4-5.) Section/ Tigersman-         126

6.) Bradman-                           103

7-8.) Superjags/ Berlyn-           75

9-10.) Tenacfan/ Floridawhite-   74

Ya, its really that close from 7th through 10, and that really does suck considering your guys were running 1-2 for most of the race...

Clint Bowyer

Jeff Burton (bait for Berlyn possibly?)

Dale Earnhardt Jr.

Anyone below 38th!

Here is the win column, unchanged:

Floridawhite and Tenacfan- 3

Superjags, Edwardsfan, and Roushfenway- 2

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

Final list of bonuses:

RFG: JPM (chances, low)   Floridawhite: David R. (chances, medium)   Bradman: Kyle B. (chances, medium)   Tigersman: Brain V. (chances, high)  Section: Kyle B.

And as for picks, its Bristol, need I say more as to who I am going to pick?

Tobasco Kat- Kyle Busch
Roushfenwayguy- Kurt Busch

Tenacfan- Jeff Gordon

Superjags- Carl Edwards

Bradman-  Carl Edwards

Berlyn- Reed Sorenson (+20 handicap) (random autopick)

Floridawhite- Jeff Gordon (RFG autopick)

Section- Kevin Harvick (+10 handicap)

Tigersman- Brain Vickers (random autopick)

Edwardsfan- Jeff Gordon

Common Picks:

Jeff Gordon: 3

Carl Edwards- 2

And I don't mean to put bad hopes on anyone, buff Jeff Gordon crash! Lol, that would be great if we got a tie just before the chase. If not though, the random pick could be the death of Berlyn.

I forget can u pick the same driver two weeks in the row? if so then i pick carl edwards, if not then i will go with Jeff Gordon.You can only pick them 2 weeks in a row if it is the 2nd race of one segment, then next week is the first of the next segment, in other words, only once per segment, since this is the same segment, you will get Gordon.

RFG's Eliminator League Week 24

I have a 50 point cushion which is essentially meaningless at a track like Bristol. Ugh, I know he has struggle this year, finished a lap down at Bristol earlier this year, but finished in the top 5 in both races last year, so gimme Kevin Harvick +10 for Bristol, and hope he doesn't get caught in anyone's mess.
