And so you have it, yet again, Tobasco Kat makes us ask the question, where has he come from!? The guy that was in last place in the overall standings is up in first again, only having to survive 1 more segment, and he could start the chase in better pos. than most of us here... wow! Tigersman and berlyn, make sure to make picks next time, during the chase, I am enforcing a rule that will make anyone that misses picks w/o a logical escuse to get their random pick with no handicap, which can really hurt if you get a bad pick.
But all that aside, all that news is nothing compared to the fact that there is finally a tie for last! Two brains duked it out, and now we have our first tie, right before the chase, make sure to make the right picks guys or you could be gone, but wait, there's more, considering bradman got 5th, Flordia will be considered for 9th, and since we have run so many and there is over 1 avg. point between them, Florida can activate the save should he lose next week.
Here is how the tie will work, Tenacfan, since Floridawhite will be gone for the week, you will likely get first dibs on who you want, whoever you want Floridawhite won't be able to pick, any tie after that will go to whoever finished better, so there's one more thing, Floridawhite could choose to intentionally lose, however, your picks for Altanta's points will carry on into the Richmond, like a regular segment, so just giving it to him could cause you to get eliminated the very next round. There is the possibility that Florida could pick a driver that he thinks will finished good, but won't finish better than Tenac's driver, then if he can pick another good driver next week, you could both stay in, but I would reccomend Florida to just pick the driver you want most (or 2nd most if Tenac took him,) and play this honorably.
And one more thing, Floridawhite and Tenacfan are tied with picking 3 winners each, so if one of you gets eliminated, then you will get +10 for all 3 segments of the chase if nobody else gets a win, if not, then both of you will get +10 for the first 2 segments.
10 handicap: 16th through 23rd
Jeff Burton (bait for Berlyn possibly?)
Dale Earnhardt Jr.
+20 handicap: 24th through 31st
Sam Hornish Jr.
Martin Truex Jr.
(Brad Kesolowski whenever he races.)
+25 handicap: 32nd through 38th
+34 handicap (picked 2x in a session will make +0 2nd time)
Anyone below 38th!
(Also, I won't change this next week, instead, I will wait until chase time to change it.)
Roushfenwayguy- 5.6 (1 win) (Moves down .3 due to 2nd place! startin to pull away in avg.)
Floridawhite- 6.3 (Lost .3 due to the 9th place, ouch, could activate the save next week.)
Superjags- 6.6 (1 win) (Lost .1 again, starting to lose early season form.)
Bradman- 6.9 (1 win) (Moves to elite 6 section, closing on superjags.)
Berlyn- 7.2 (3 wins) (Moves down .1, just slowly moving down the avg. and staying in this game.)
Tenacfan- 8.4 (1 win) (Keeps avg. can likely lower avg. if he survives.)
Section- 8.6 (1 win) (Keeps same avg., slowly dropping to the bottom.)
Edwardsfan- 8.8 (1 win) (Moves down .5 due to 3rd, can see Section's bumper.)
Tigersman- 9.2 (Moves down .4, maybe he should think about working on Section.)
Tobasco Kat- 9.9 (2 wins) (Moves down .8 due to his second win, finally in single digits, and working on getting out of last!)
Here is the win column, changed:
Floridawhite and Tenacfan- 3
