RFG's Eliminator League Week 4

Another week, another Jimmie Johnson win... not very surpising... oh well, I picked him, along with 3 other people. Also a bit of clarification, especially pointing this out for Uscfannv, if you see (RFG autopicks) instead of (random autopicks), it doesn't not mean that you got really lucky random picks, rather selections from either the pick 3 thread or who will win thread are taken into consideration for RFG autopicks. RFG autopicks will overrule any random autopicks, however, you will not receive handicap bonuses from any autopicks. With that clarified, let's get right to the standings...

Best picks = 375 (Jimmie Johnson, Kevin Harvick)

THE PODIUM
1.) Uscfannv-           380 (The bonus points from last session made him score better than the best possible score Surprised!)

2.) Fsu1dogs-          350 (The doghouse is back!)

3.) Bored at Work-    337
NON-PODIUM 300 CLUB

4.) Blkhwkfn-            328 (Bonus points also surged blk near the podium.)

     Coach-                328 (same as berlyn's/mikey's picks, but bonus surged him near the podium.)

6.) Foreplus-            324

7.) Roushfenwayguy- 320

8. )Section-              315 (RCR gamble? paid off)

9.)Bradman-             314

10.) Berlyn-                308

      Mikeyfan-            308

12.) Floridawhite-        307

13.) Obxyankeefan-    305
200 CLUB

14.) ILL55INI-            283

      RAK-                   283

16.) D2Moo-               274

17.) Edwardsfan-         257

18.) Superjags-           248 (lucky he got Harvick as an autopick)
DANGER ZONE!!!

19.) Chokin Colts-       184 (Even Mike Bliss and Kasey Kahne beat the Busch bros...)

20.) Tenacfan-            181 (The Las Vegas Bros. did not pay off this week.)

       Tigersman-          181

       M56Nascar-          181

       Hardtobeat-         181

24.) Spikesgator-        175 (JPM puts him in the danger zone... actually McMurray did...)

25.) Yokobluewave-     143 (Those RFG autopicks can kill you sometimes...)

Yokobluewave, Superjags and Chokin Colts all failed to make picks this week, and as you can see, all three of them suffered, finishing no better than 18th, warning everyone to please make their picks, or else you could pay big time. Everyone is still in this of course... and everyone could still be eliminated, but the Danger zone represents the group where the loser will likely come from. Remeber that if you lose this session, you will get eliminated, its very easy to rise, but also very easy to fall.

Also, I will be keeping close eyes on everyone's lineups. Remeber that you can't choose the same lineup that you had last week, however, you can keep one of your two drivers.

RFG's Eliminator League Week 4

RFG= if you want to argue numbers then take it up with USA Friday sports.  It showed JJ at 11.8 career, and JR at 12.0, all others were 12+; naturally it would have to be ober a certain number of races for it to mean anything.  Do you think i invented those numbers? snathched them from no where land?  You should worry more about Roush than RH drivers.Like I said, if you were considering 10+ quality starts than you are correct, but during the past 10 years Jeff Gordon has done better than Dale Earnhardt Jr... and that's a span of over the last 20 races... so that is a much better representation of what may show, as Gordon wasn't that great here at the beginnning of his career, then heated up... and we might be looking at slight different data, I'm seeing Johnson at 10.7, Allmendinger at 11.2 and Jr. at 11.9, mine are coming from Foxsports.

will go with the 2 drivers with the best track finishes at Atl, JJ and JR. Im a firm believer in playing the percentages.

If your talking about best finish finish, then a lot more people than just these two have a win here, lol.

If your talking about avg. finish total, then actually the greatest two are Jimmie Johnson and believe it or not A.J. Allmendinger, however, it your talking about at least 10 quality starts, then yes you would be right.

In addition, during the past 10 years and during the past 5 years, Jeff Gordon beats Jr. in both scenarios... so if your playing the percentages, it may help to study a bit more Wink.

auto picks? haha hey RFG can I unauto pick Earnhardt Jr and Martin?

Of course, I just do auto picks on Saturday because 1, its one of the most convienient times for me and 2, it helps me hunt down those who haven't made picks yet so I can warn them that they still need to make picks before the race. Auto picks can always be chaged, or any picks that you made, until the green flag waves.
