Alright, the last race, the championship decider, Jimmie Johnson may have the Sprint Cup in his grasps but the Eliminator Cup is still up for grabs. Edwardsfan long conservation of Jimmie Johnson paid off, as he got the winner. There is just one more race, and that is Homestead, so lets see where the championship standings stand.

1.) Roushfenway-  633 (Got +10 off the bonus) (leader)

2.) Bradman-        631 (Got +20 off the bonus) (-2)

3.) Floridawhite-    564 (Got +5 off the bonus)   (-69)

4.) Edwardsfan-     563 (Got +15 off the bonus) (-70)

5.) Tenacfan-        474 (Got +5 off the bonus)   (-159)

6.) Berlyn-            448 (Got 0 off the bonus)     (-185)

Alright, this is as close as it gets people! Unless Both my and Bradman's driver finish below 10th, right next to eachother with mine on top, and Bradman's driver leads a lap (resulting in a tie) (not including leading most laps) it will come down to whichever one of us has the driver who is ahead of the other.

Of course Floridawhite and Edwardsfan will be duking it out hard if both me and Bradman have a hiccup, but it is incredibly close, this is must more interesting than the chase standings at least, lol.

Tenacfan is realistically out, for he would need me to finish last, Bradman next to last, and he would need the winner and that winner would need to lead the most laps (and this way Tenacfan would only win by 1 point). Berlyn is mathematically out, however, the fight for 5th place is still hot, and if florida/edwardsfan hiccup, then a podium finish is possible for you guys, especially if you get the winner.

Also congratulations to Bradman, who got the bonus pick right on the nose, which allowed for this 2 point difference.

There will be no bonus this week! This is just a free-for-all week. I do caution, however, that you may want to PST me your picks so that somebody up front doesn't take your pick and thus you won't be able to pass them. I will notify you if you PST me your pick if somebody in front of you takes that driver, unfortunately, that person who is behind will need to change their driver, since the person up front really won't have a motive to change. And I promised that I wouldn't make it so that only 1 person can pick 1 driver again.

For my last race, I saved Jeff Gordon for a reason, he get 4th and 4th his past two races here, and I'm hoping that after his Texas win, he can get his final winless track taken care of, and maybe put a bit of pressure on Johnson/ Martin. Also I can just say my pick since I don't really have to worry about anyone picking the same driver to stay ahead of me.

Bradman- Matt Kenseth     VS.     Roushfenway- Jeff Gordon

Edwardsfan-  Greg Biffle  VS. Floridawhite- Tony Stewart

Berlyn- Jeff Burton  VS.   Tenacfan- Kyle Busch 

(Lineups are subject to cross should a driver have a bad day.)

Common Picks (check if a competition has your pick):
No common picks, for the first week ever I believe!

RFG's Chase Eliminator FINAL

Not alot of great choices for me to take from, I've used all of the drivers that I thought would do well here.... and DANGIT RFG, why couldn't you have been eliminated week 1 of the chase. =]
All year I've stuck with RoushFenway drivers, and I'm gonna continue to do that this week, Matt Kenseth to win at Homestead in the Final Race of the year. He won the First, and will now win the Last race of the season..... This has been alot of fun RFG, 'preciate it.
