Alright, first, before I announce the winner, let's go back throughout the whole competition and see how everyone stacked...

DNF- Justgreat and Bearthumb (were replaced by Superjags and Spikesgator)

21.) ynorocks (first man eliminated)

20.) Syfre

19.) Sford

18.) Plaid (first participator eliminated; Tobasco started streak of staying alive by a nose)

17.) Chicagolaw (where has he gone anyway)

16.) Spikesgator (Showed how a dominating person can go down fast in this game.)

15.) Bondkbond (Where has that fly gone?)

14.) Fsu1dogs (the dominator before elimination)

13.) Uscfannv (first to stay in top 5 after elimination in average)

12.) M56Nascar56 (The guy that showed that taking the 34 point penalty isn't that bad occasionally.)

11.) Mikeyfan (The guy who got eliminated for picking a driver who finished in 2nd place.)

(Tobasco Kat snaps bad streak and turns it to winning streak week 23.)
(The first tie occured between Tenacfan and Floridawhite in week 24.)
(In week 25 Floridawhite activated the only save.)
(RFG proclaimed that no tie-breaker would take place in the chase after week 26.)

10.) Superjags (first eliminated by chase)

9.) Tigersman (got eliminated by 3 points, sent Edwardsfan to final)

8.) Tobasco Kat (lost his streak in a big way)

7.) Section (last man to not make the final)


And now we get to the final standings...

In 6th place, with 621 points, was Tenacfan!!! The underdog of the whole competition didn't end up stacking too well in the end, but just that he defied the odds to make it all the way here was amazing.

In 5th place, with 623 points, just beating out Tenacfan by 2 points, was Berlyn! The Only girl in this competition, with the most session wins, looked like she was in good position, but just one race killed her from winning.

In 4th place, with 666 points, is Floridawhite. Mr. Consistency stayed consistent, but it wasn't a winning consistent for this last segment. He put up one heck of a fight though, just gliding into the final... and he had a save to use.

In 3rd place, with 684 points, is Edwardsfan. This guy has been up and down this season due to the struggling of his driver, and it was that driver that eliminated him from possibly winning the whole thing.

In 2nd place, with 755 points, is Bradman! Bradman kept this whole game interesting, choosing RF drivers at all the right times, and seeming to know exactly who to pick to stay in the upper pack, he also kept the final session a race to the wire.

And in 1st place, with a whopping 783 points, is your truly Roushfenwayguy! I won only once before this, yet I kept my head straight, and I drove to victory in the only part that mattered, the last part.

All you guys did a great job, and I'll likely be running this game next year. Hope to see a lot of new people, as well as everyone else that participated here, and with an eliminator, you just can't expect there to be the same winner twice.

A MASSIVE THANK YOU to RFG for running this competition for the season, of the dozen or so leagues that I partook of this year I enjoyed this one the best (even though I didn't win it). What a season it was, quite the roller coaster ride - Good Times, Bad Time you know I've had my share and even though the title was won again by a brownish eyed man I still don't seem to care!

God willing, I'll be back next year for more fun RFG so pencil me in.

And finally - CONGRATULATIONS RFG!  Cool

You also forgot to mention adding a rule that kept you in the game after you should have been eliminated. Wink I was done in by going against my better judgement and picking Kasey Kahne in a race where he had a top 10 finish locked up until some late race cautions, but oh well, those are the breaks.
Hey man, I told you that with that rule I switched my pick to Carl Edwards from Jimmie Johnson, since I thought Edwards was more of the sure thing and Johnson was more of the risk, which allowed Superjags to pick Johnson, and although I was completely wrong in my judgement on that track, there is no true way of telling what would have happened if I let it be so and I picked Johnson.
