Alright, just two more weeks to go... and nobody picked Kurt Busch, he never got a win here before, so it wasn't too predictable, on the podium is me, with a 3rd place, Bradman with an 8th, and Floridawhite with a 13th who luckily caught his Jimmie Johnson error before it was too late... he would have gotten 15 points for the week, which would have really sucked. As for the other three that aren't on the podium though, its not too much better for you, as this will dig a deep hole for you three that will need to be dug out of quick. Here are the standings as we head to Pheonix next week:

1.) Roushfenway- 468 (+180 for this week, got +15 off the bonus) (leader)

2.) Bradman-       446 (+152 for the week, got +10 off the bonus)  (-22)

3.) Floridawhite-    399 (+139 for this week, got +10 off the bonus) (-69)

4.) Edwardsfan-     353 (+51 for this week, got +5 off the bonus)     (-115)

5.) Berlyn-            333 (+59 for this week, got +10 off the bonus)    (-135)

6.) Tenacfan-        309 (+64 for this week, got +15 off the bonus)    (-159)

Well, unless me, Bradman and Florida all have a bad week, it might have just become a three race finish, of course like this week, anything can happen, so don't give up hope. The bonus went alright, I mean understood if anyone guessed Jimmie Johnson... well that wouldn't have happened. Anyway, stuff like this happens, and you would think that Talladega would have had a bigger impact, but infact this race did. Now we move to Pheonix... and one more thing, Edwardsfan is the only person left with a Jimmie Johnson pick!

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)

So... bonus for this week... I'll have to go with one lap down. Its simple, guess the first person that is one lap down, (in other words the driver in the lucky dog pos. when the race ends.) and you get +20 points, guess anyone that is one lap down, get +15, if you guess anyone that gets 2 laps down, its +10, 3 or more laps down and you still get +5, if your driver doesn't go a lap down, you get nothing, however, if you pick a driver that gets a DNF, you get -10 points, so just watch out not to pick a DNF driver and you should be good. Again this is optional, but even drivers that crash will likely come back, so its worth taking a shot... just don't pick Dave Blaney or Nemechek, lol.

For me this week, I have to go with my man Kurt Busch, almost went with Martin, but after that win, I need to go with Kurt, and I feel as if bad luck may hit Martin this week.

Edwardsfan-  Jimmie Johnson (bonus = Jaime McMurray) 

Bradman- Denny Hamlin (bonus = Sam Hornish Jr.)    

Roushfenway- Kurt Busch (bonus = Robby Gordon)

Berlyn- Carl Edwards (bonus= Marcos Ambrose)          

Floridawhite- Mark Martin (bonus= John Andretti)

Tenacfan- Mark Martin  (bonus= Michael Waltrip)

Common Picks:

Mark Martin: 2

So... it's the first race car drover to go a lap down.... or like the BEST PLACING 1 lap down driver?..... Meaning he is first amongst the lap down drivers? =]

GOOD QUESTION. Anyway the answer is B.) the best placing driver 1 lap down, because the first driver to go a lap down could end up going 5 laps down, and obviously by that would get less bonus points. At the end of the race the first car that is one lap down gets the +20.
