So who picked Kurt Busch? Not me... ummm... RAK... oh wait, that's Kyle Busch... out of 50 picks, not a single person picked Kurt Busch, the winner of last year, and this is also the first race that nobody got the winner, but I mean, come on! We got 2 people to pick Jaime McMurray at the unpredictable Daytona, and nobody can even guess that the winner of last year was going to win this year... man we suck... and nobody picked 2nd place Matt Kenseth... anyway, I know one of the people that I'm picking for Bristol. But let's get right to the standings and see who is eliminated! Also Super and Yoko missed both picks this session, I'll try to hunt them down and interrogate them. (Parentheses number= this week's score.)

Top Lineup: Kurt Busch, Paul Menard (370)

Podium/600 Club

1.) Uscfannv-            645 (265)

2.) Foreplus-             610 (286) (With a +20 handicap, Jr. scored around a top 10 points worth, don't complain, lol.)

3.) Bradman-            608 (294)

500 Club

4.) Bored at Work-    593 (256)

5.) Section-              590 (275)

6.) Obxyankeefan-   580 (275)

7.) Roushfenwayguy- 577 (257)

8.) Berlyn-                574 (266)

9.) Coach-                573 (245)

10.) Mikeyfan-            565 (257) (You're chage actually went for the better, 16 points gained, 50 point swing in all.)

11.) Fsu1dogs-           562 (212) (Lost top 3 by a longshot due to Mark Martin getting caught in the crash.)

12.) Floridawhite-        543 (236)

13.) Blkhwkfn-            530 (202)

400 Club

14.) Rak-                   485 (202)

15.) Edwardsfan-         462 (205) (Carl Edwards was actually the risk it looks like.)

16.) Tigersman-          456 (275)

       ILL55INI-             456 (173)

18.) D2Moo-                437 (163)

19.) Superjags-            434 (186)

20.) Spikesgator-         432 (257)

21.) Hardtobeat-          422 (241)

22.) Tenacfan-             414 (233)

23.) Chokin Colts-        400 (216) (JPM was a great pick, Edwards was not.)

The Fail Below 400 Club

24.) M56Nascar-           397 (216) (Same as Chokin's message, except for Kahne instead of JPM.)

25.) Yokobluewave-      295 (152) (Obviously you can't be doing too good in the Pick 3 league as well.)

Well, it was a close race for next to last, lol. Anyway, it looks as it Yokobluewave is the first man out by a long-shot... just shows what not coming can do to  you (hint to Superjags). Also congratulations to Uscfannv, his lead was so vast last week that nobody could come close to catching him. Although nobody even got 300 points this week, quite depressing. In addition, M56 has become the only person to make it into the fail zone twice, and nobody else can hold that honor now that Yoko is gone and hardtobeat doesn't count since he missed the first week... one thing is for sure, M56Nascar has a huge warning sign coming up around him. And one more thing, since you pick two people now, the handicap you get now is +20, not +10, so uscfannv will get yet another handicap, as he is controlling this game right now.

Winning Drivers Chosen:

Roushfenwayguy- 2
uscfannv-            2

Floridawhite-        1
Section-              1
Coach-               1

Superjags-          1
Tigersman-         1

OK, I will go with Kevin Harvick and Tony Stewart. Tony is due for a good run, and usually does well at Bristol. At least until Harvick wrecks him.
