Alright, week 5 is now underway, just one more week until this session is over. Remember people, if you chose someone last week, or even the week before, you can't choose them now, if you weren't paying attention to me, tough luck, listen for once, lol. 34 point penatlies will be distributed and enforced accordingly, in fact I'll put lists down for every of who they can't use for this race at Lowe's. That means that 4/8 people can't choose Jimmie Johnson this race... that's 50%. With that in mind... wait a second... oh boy!!!!!!! Actually, only 3/8 people can't use Johnson, because we got a first. A person tried to get away with choosing Jimmie Johnson twice!! And who was the perpetraitor... none other than... Floridawhite!!! You almost caught me off-guard, but I will keep my word, Floridawhite will recieve -34 points to his total, but Johnson was the winner, so really it wasn't that bad, lol. Anyway, we had 2 people get the winner of Jimmie Johnson this week, so it was a good time to pick him, 1 of those obviously being Floridawhite. Anyway, to the standings! And both me and berlyn got the bonus with Brian Vickers.

1.) Bradman-      370 (All but secured himself a spot in the finals.) (+78)

2.) Berlyn-          335 (got the bonus) (+43)

3.) Tenacfan-      328 (and he is doing this with a hurt back.) (+36)

4.) Edwardsfan-   311 (+19)

Roushfenway-      311 (got the bonus)

6.) Floridawhite-   304  (+12)
7.) Tobasco Kat-  292 (-12)

8.) Section-         246 (Oh how the mighty have fallen...) (-58)

So there you have it, Bradman is starting to pull away, and remember 2 people get eliminated. Section also made a new record this week, as he is the first person to move from first to last in the standings, and unless if someone has a bad day, Section could be gone with the competition so tight. The numbers in parenthesis represent how many points you are either ahead of 7th, or behind 6th, 6th being the final spot that gets into the finals.

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, for the bonus, lets see...  the bonus for this week will give +10, and will break any ties, so make sure you answer this one... anyway, the question is... who will gain the most positions in the chase! And because this is the last week, no pentaly, so everyone should take a stab at it. If there is a tie, I.E., Tony Stewart and Brian Vickers both gain 3 spots, then everyone that chose Tony Stewart and Brian Vickers will get +10, however, if they end up tied, the tie breaker would go to whoever's bonus is higher in the standings, in this case Stewart would be, you can choose the same winner and bonus.

Bonuses: RFG: Jeff Gordon... Berlyn: Denny Hamlin... Floridawhite: Ryan Newman... Tobasco Kat: Kurt Busch... Section: Ryan Newman

As for me this week, I saved him for this race, Jimmie Johnson, remember you can choose a driver twice with a -34 penalty, Florida could try for the Johnson trifecta, lol.

Tenacfan- Tony Stewart

Tobasco Kat- Dale Earnhardt Jr. (+10 handicap)

Roushfenway- Jimmie Johnson

Berlyn- Jimmie Johnson

Bradman- Tony Stewart

Floridawhite- Jeff Gordon

Edwardsfan- Jimmie Johnson

Section_725- Mark Martin

Common Picks:

Jimmie Johnson- 3

Tony Stewart- 2

the bonus for this week will give +10, and will break any ties,Well obviously Edwardsfan didn't get the memo... I said this as clear as mud, and now if Johnson has some sort of crash, problem, which can happen here, and lets say Section ends up still behind us yet the other 2 move ahead of me and Edwardsfan, the tie breaker will break all ties, so if Gordon gains even 1 pos. in the standings, then I move on and Edwardsfan is eliminated... thin ice for Edwardsfan unless he claims a bonus quick.

Well I picked Jimmie in two other games, so hopefully that will jinx him. This week I will go with Mark Martin to win, and for the bonus, I would have went with Jeff Gordon, but that would mean he had a good race and I would be eliminated since FloridaWhite picked him. I will say Ryan Newman gets the biggest jump.

Is it too late to change my pick? I'd like to go with good ol' Jeff Gordon for a solid top five finish.

I'll go with Jimmie J.........DOH! I can't do that can I?You can go with him again if you like, but just like last time, you will get 34 points subtracted from your score, which does really hurt unless he wins. Anyway I got you put down for Johnson, if you want to make the trifecta ultimate risk and see if it pays off... go for it.

Soooo, Section is calling me a cheat!............and he reckons I should be penalized up to 200 points eh!

.......and according to RFG I can play a part in his downfall right! Mmmmmmmmm? I think I'll wait.




















Naw.....I won't sink to that level ........ lol !

I'll go with Jimmie J.........DOH! I can't do that can I?

Okay, I'll go with............Montoya!

.....and the driver who will make the biggest leap forward in the chase will be Ryan Newman.

If both of you choose a bad driver, then both of you will get eliminated anyway, its the bottom 2, not just the bottom 1, now if Edwardsfan and Tobasco chose your driver, then you might be screwed...By Edwardsfan I mean Floridawhite.
