Alright, week 1/3 is over. And who got some checkered smoke... nobody??? What happened to the Tony Stewart support.... as well, at least someone picked 2nd place Jeff Gordon right... wait... not even him... obviously something's wrong when Tony and Gordon aren't picked, they had to prove us wrong... anyway, to the standings!

1.) Section_725- 185 (He was the only one to get the bonus)

2.) Bradman-      175

3.) Berlyn-          165

4.) Tenacfan-      153 (Got a free bonus due to back issues)

5.) Roushfenway- 151

Edwardsfan99-      151
7.) Floridawhite-     143

8.) Tobasco Kat-     127

Remember, two people will be eliminated, so make sure you think about not only beating last place, just 1 bad race could take you right out of this thing. And in addition, if there is a tie for 6th and 7th... then... oh that will be messy... well I'll have a seperate bonus for week 3 that will seperate that, so please make sure you guys check in on the bonuses, if you don't, especially week 3, you could tie, yet see your own demise come like a truck.

Alright, here we are at the auto club speedway! The bonus for this week, pick the chaser this week that gets the worst finish. Same philosophy as last week, where if your driver doesn't end up with the worst pos., you can't use him for the next race, so if you want to be safe, just go with some guy like Brian Vickers (hint at who I am picking).

Bonuses: RFG + Berlyn=Brian Vickers... Section + Bradman= Ryan Newman... Tobasco Kat= Denny Hamlin

Alright, now for actual picks, I'm going for the underdog, who begs the question as to how he is the underdog, he always seems to deliever at this track, I give you Carl Edwards!!!

Tenacfan- Jeff Gordon

Tobasco Kat- Mark Martin

Roushfenway- Carl Edwards

Berlyn- Tony Stewart

Bradman- Jimmie Johnson

Floridawhite- Jimmie Johnson

Edwardsfan- Tony Stewart

Section_725- Kasey Kahne

RFG's Chase Eliminator Week 4

I don't know if the safe choice as you put it is the correct choice. Look at the stats in this race for the last 5 years.
He has a top 5 and 2 top 10 finishes, and an average finish of 15.4 which would rank him 7th out of the top 12. Who has a worse average finish, hey do your own research.

Onto this weeks selections. Carl Edwards has the best average finish over the last 5 years, finishing in the top 10 in all 5 races, but hasn't been that great this year and RFG already chose him. Since he makes up a new rule if I pick the same as him, I will go with the guy who has the 2nd highest finishing average, and has also finished in the top 10 in the last 5 fall races. This week, I will take a chance and go with Kasey Kahne.

Now as far as the worst chaser goes, JPM actually has the worst average finish here at 26.5, and hasn't gotten a top 10. Seems like the easy choice, but he has been really good this year, so I won't risk the bonus points by picking him. I will go with the guy who has an average finish of 22.2, and only one decent finish in the top 5 in 5 years. Ryan Newman is my choice for the worst chase driver this week. Besides, Tony is getting the good equipment, and Ryan is getting the backup cars.
