Gotta do this quick, gj to Tenacfan, picking the winner, if only this was one race before he would have +10 for all 3 sessions, now here we go with the standings:

1.) Tenacfan- 200

2.) Bradman-  175

Tobasco Kat- 175 (Good thing you misinterpreted the rules, lol.)

4.) Superjags-    165

5.) Tigersman-    138

6.) Floridawhite-   128

7.) Roushfenway-  127

Edwardsfan-           127

9.) Berlyn-           126

Section-          126

Ya, look at that mess, from 5 to 10th there is only 12 points of difference, that's what handicaps do for you, wow that's close! Will make for a really interesting week 2, and remember 2 people get eliminated, not 1.

Now for the rule, like I explained last week, you can only choose chase drivers, and only a maximum of 2 people can choose a chase driver, this is to avoid people picking the same driver as someone lower than them to secure themselves a place in the next round... well... only 1 person will be able to do it, if you feel threatened still, feel free to pst me VIA the post that leads to this blog, I will get to it and put it up as a ???. And for Tobasco, I was saying that I needed to reveal the rule so everyone got a fair shot, considering that you thought it was for last week though, it is likely that you will be the last one making picks and might lose out on a lot of the great drivers, lol. Pick fast people!

No handicaps for this race!

Here is where picks will go for this week, I will go with Jimmie Johnson for this race, as he is becoming hotter to try for a win.

Tobasco Kat- Kurt Busch

Section_725- Greg Biffle

Tenacfan2- Tony Stewart (+10 handicap next race, not this one)

Berlyn- Jimmie Johnson

Edwardsfan- Mark Martin

Bradman-  Greg Biffle

Tigersman-  Brian Vickers

Floridawhite- Mark Martin (10 on any pick next race, not this one)

Roushfenway- Jimmie Johnson

Superjags-

Common Picks:

Mark Martin- 2

Jimmie Johnson- 2

Greg Biffle- 2

(If you see anyone under common picks, it means you can't pick them, anyone that does will get that driver with a 34 point penalty induced, unless you are really confident in your driver, please don't go that route, I don't want to see people get eliminated that way.)

And also you can't pick the driver you picked last week, oh these restrictions are so much fun, lol, anyway, I put who you can't pick next to your name for your convienence.

And truly, I don't mean to be rude by this, I won't make wicked restrictions like this for the rest of the season.

And one more thing, the theme for next week until the final 5 races I will reveal now... it is... Guesses of the week- which will simply give bonuses for guesses made correctly, nothing major, but it will make sure you know your stuff, and if you don't respond to it, it won't really hurt you too much, which is really what I was looking for, more info on it later. I almost decided to go with Golf Points, but that would make anyone that picked someone that crashed fall into an even bigger hole.

Guys I am haveing another back surgery Tuesday so I won't be around for a while. If you guys could pick my driver each week for me. If not then this is how I want themWow that sounds horrible. I don't have time now, but I will come back and copy these picks down so that you have them in the future, these are much better than getting a mystery pick that could end up being someone like Blaney.

Is there a reason why there is a massive blank beside me name??If you came in two minutes later you wouldn't have noticed, lol. I didn't account your pick for Greg Biffle before, don't worry, you have him and its recorded now.

There are 3 players who chose Mark Martin.  Why put it in bold print if you're not going to abide by the rule?Incase you didn't notice, I gave Section a -34 point handicap, he can have him, but at a large cost, that is why he is changed, so I did enforce it, maybe I just didn't say that a -34 point handicap would result in the post, but that is what will happen if someone tries to do it.

My mistake, I didn't read all of FloridaWhites rambling post, and didn't see Mark Martin was chosen a second time. Ugh, this makes it tough. I can't go with Mark, Tony Stewart is out, who to choose? I will go with Greg Biffle who finished 3rd at Dover earlier this year, and had two top 5's at Dover last year, including a win.
