RFG's Eliminator League Week 26

Wow that was a messy week, Smoke almost went down to a horrible finish, its a good thing Bradman changed out of Carl Edwards, and ya, it looks like all the 4 people that chose Jimmie Johnson will be the ones fighting for survival, including me and Floridawhite, now obviously he lost, which means he will activate the save. That means that neither I, Florida, or Superjags (the top 3 in avg. all picked Johnson,) can get a save, its going to be as tight here as it is in the Chase for the Chase. Let's just see how well everyone did, oh, and congratz to Kasey Kahne, he almost secured himself a spot in the chase (but really I wanted Harvick to win.. don't want to see Kahne in the chase.) And nobody picked Kahne of course, so no win column changes:

1.) Tobasco Kat- 165 (Can he win 3 segments in a row, becoming from what everyone thought to be the underdog to becoming one of the favorites to win this whole thing?)
2.) Section-        147 (Almost secured a chase spot, will he rub it in Mikeyfan's face... probably.)

3.) Bradman-      132 (Made a nice change, should make it now.)

4+5.) Tenacfan and Edwardsfan- 130  (These two shouldn't have much to worry about, just the chase.)

6.) Berlyn-           123 (Hopefully she starts making picks, else when the chase comes, she will not get their handicaps.)

7-10.) Roushfenway, Florida, Superjags and Tigersman- 60 (All the favorites to win this thing could go out this week, if Tigersman survives, he is the underdog of this competition.)

10 handicap: 16th through 23rd

Clint Bowyer

Jeff Burton (bait for Berlyn possibly?)

Dale Earnhardt Jr.

Jaime McMurray

Macros Ambrose

Casey Mears

Joey Logano

Kevin Harvick


+20 handicap: 24th through 31st

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: 32nd through 38th

Michael Watrip

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!

(Also, I won't change this next week, instead, I will wait until chase time to change it.)

Here is the win column, unchanged:

Floridawhite and Tenacfan- 3

Superjags, Edwardsfan, Tobasco Kat and Roushfenway- 2

Section, Bradman,  and Berlyn=1

Final list of bonuses:

RFG: JPM (very unlikely)  Floridawhite: David R.  (all but impossible) Bradman: Kyle B.  (could happen) Tigersman: Brain V.  (very well possible) Section: Kyle B. (could happen)  Remember, if you get the 12th place driver correct, you will win +20 for the first segment.

And now for picks, I need to hope my driver does well, and after seeing last week, anyone that is locked for the chase seems like a bad pick, so I need to go for a desperate man... at Richmond... so my choice is obvious, and this could be risky because he could crash, but I need to go for it... Kyle Busch:

Tobasco Kat-  Kyle Busch

Roushfenway- Kyle Busch

Edwardsfan- Carl Edwards

Tigersman- Mark Martin

Bradman- Tony Stewart

Berlyn- Jimmie Johnson

Superjags- Kyle Busch

Section- Kyle Busch

Floridawhite- Mark Martin

Tenacfan- Kyle Busch

Common Picks:

Kyle Busch: 5

Mark Martin: 2

Bradman, Berlyn and Edwardsfan, the honorable samuri, are the only ones that can get eliminated since all 4 at the bottom picked 2 for Kyle, 2 for Mark, they can't be eliminated at least this week.

Looks like the younger Busch boy is a popular pick this week.  I thought about taking him, or Vickers, or even a Jr. (Hornish or Truex at +20, or Earnhardt +10)...but I'm gonna go with the old man - Mark Martin.

Lots of good picks this week, J. Johnson, Mark Martin, Denny Hamlin, but everyone seems to be choosing Kyle Busch, but I'll go with Tony Stewart to get on a roll here to gain a few more bonus points for him and myself =] going into the Chase.

Bradman: Tony Stewart

Well, if I follow Tabasco who seems to pick the winner every week I'd have to go with Kyle but then if the final four of us all pick the same driver that will cause chaos so I'll go with Mark Martin to outrun Kyle this week at Richmond.

Ok by Sections logic the Kyle Busch pick is a good one for me as well

Wow, you guys are just asking me to make up a confusing new rule. But don't worry, it will all be fixed in the chase... Cool

Btw, if this shows up twice, its because my internet had a 1 second crash when I tried to post this, but just pretend that if you do see it twice, its to increase the value of this post's message.

I'm gonna go with Kyle Busch and guarantee I move onto the next round. Both Tenacfan and RFG picked him, and I am ahead of both so I can't lose this segment with this pick.
Wow, well that's just called the cheapo stab, you could have picked Carl Edwards by that logic, lol.

Besides, he has a good chance of winning here.
