Alright, first thing, I'm pretty sure I said this, but if I didn't, I said that if you get a random pick, you can get a non-chase driver,  in addition, even during these next 2 segments, random picks will earn you no handicap points... with that in mind, Superjags happened not to come in and pick from what I saw, please correct me if I'm wrong, anyway, Superjags ended up with Michael Waltrip. Due to thus, he is pretty much toast since he finished 36th. Sad way to go down, but that's the way the cookie crumbles sometimes, especially at this time of year. And congratulations to berlyn and myself, we beat everyone to the elusive Jimmie Johnson and got the win, also those that got to Mark Martin first are happy and those who wanted Mark Martin (Section at least) might not be as happy, but like I said, that was to get a point across from when Section started a trend where everyone picked Kyle Busch to auto-be saved. Now, lets get to the standings, and find out who was the second man to get eliminated.

1.) Tenacfan2-    338

2.) Tobasco Kat-  335

3.) Roushfenway- 322

4.) Berlyn-           321

5.) Bradman-       299

6.) Floridawhite-   298

7.) Edwardsfan-    297

8.) Section_725-   250

9.) Tigersman-     247 (the +20 bonus got him 1 position away....)

10.) Superjags-    220

And with 3 points, Tigersman is set asunder, along with Superjags who forgot to make picks this week, two tales, both end with a tragic end... but that's what's going to make this session fun, the chance to get bonus points, and to get those who choose to recieve earn big! Although, there is one more thing, the downside! Guesses of the Week starts now, and first you must guess who will be in 3rd in the points standings after this race. If you get it right, +10 is heading your way, but if you get it wrong, the driver that you choose for that category you will be unable to choose for the rest of the segment.

Also let me remind you that this is a 3 race segment. So if you pick Jimmie Johnson this week, you can't pick him for 2 more weeks, and if you want to pick who is 1st, 2nd and 3rd in the standings, if you get the bonus wrong this week, it could kill you. The bonus is by all means optional, you don't have to answer it and take the risk, but if you really don't have much hope for that driver after this race, go for it! And by the way guys, guess what, if you choose your winner to get to 3rd place in the points, you are making no risk, so for people like Bradman who chose Greg Biffle, go with Biffle for the bonus, you already used him, so it doesn't matter win or lose.

Oh, and one more thing, because Tenacfan2 is having back problems and won't be able to come back for a bit, he will automatically get +10 throughout this segment, in other words, he got 1 of the bonuses right, and the other 2 wrong, and nobody else can use the "I need to go away for awhile due to... something" excuse to try to not make risks and get 10 bonus points.

Handicaps are back, here they are:

10 handicap: 16th through 23rd

David Reutimann

 Macros Ambrose

Jeff Burton

Casey Mears

Joey Logano

Kevin Harvick

Dale Earnhardt Jr.

Jaime McMurray

+20 handicap: 24th through 31st

A.J. Allmendinger

Elliot Sadler

Martin Truex Jr.

Sam Hornish Jr.

Reed Sorenson

Bobby LaBonte

David Ragan

David Stremme

(Brad Kesolowski whenever he races.)

+25 handicap: 32nd through 38th

Paul Menard

Robby Gordon

Michael Watrip

Scott Speed

John Andretti

David Gilliland

Regan Smith

+34 handicap (picked 2x in a session will make +0 2nd time)

Anyone below 38th!

Alright, now here is where picks will go, for Kansas, Carry On My Wayward... Oldest Man on the Circuit... anyway, I'm going with Mark Martin, I organized my 3 race plan already, so for my bonus, I am not afraid to go with Kurt Busch.

Tenacfan- Jimmie Johnson

Tobasco Kat- Kyle Busch

Roushfenway- Mark Martin

Berlyn- JPM

Bradman- Greg Biffle

Floridawhite- Jimmie Johnson

Edwardsfan- Mark Martin

Section_725- Greg Biffle

Common Picks:

Mark Martin- 2

Bonus Picks:

RFG= Kurt Busch... Section= JPM... Edwardsfan= no risk... Floridawhite= Tony Stewart...  Bradman= no risk... Berlyn= no risk
(And remember, 2 more will be eliminated this segment, not just 1.)

And make sure Tobasco that you at least make picks, lol, else you could be in trouble.

RFG's Chase Eliminator Week 3

Man only 4 posts and we only need 2 people left, I have a feeling posts on these boards are about to become as rare as finding a place where Super isn't being roasted or eliminated from games.

This is going to give him yet another reason to hate mikeyfan.
that was to get a point across from when Section started a trend where everyone picked Kyle Busch to auto-be saved.
Hey, I was just trying to save my own butt from elimination. It's not my fault that it was such a great idea everyone else went with it as well. Besides, it gave you the opportunity to make up some cockamamy rule to keep your own butt in the game.Wink

Now onto the challenge

This week I will go with Greg Biffle who had 4 top 5's and a win in the last 5 races.

As for the bonus, I will say that JPM will maintain the 3rd position. If I don't get to choose him for two races no big loss.
