I am Coming for you RFG!  Watchout!

Yup, someone didn't read the directions, lol. Yoko, during the past two weeks you have failed to make picks, and I accordingly gave you RFG picks according to your winner and chaser on the pick 3 game, on both weeks you ended up making pretty bad picks, and I didn't see you pick Kurt Busch for your winner in that game, so you didn't end up getting him. Since you ended up with the lowest score during the past two weeks, you were eliminated from the game, then scores start at scratch, so you know... I could go for top 10 to last, so it won't be hard to catch me once a new session starts. Points don't accumulate throughout this whole thing, they reset after every session.

Now anyway, to my decision, since I am the game owner... I can push through a few knots. Since you showed that you still care about the game, and Superjags has missed 3 weeks in a row (also in the pick 3 game), I have decided to count those picks you made yesterday and you are now back in the game in place of Superjags! Just make sure you remember to make picks every week.

Anyway... you know I'm ticked as a Kurt Busch fan and since I picked him.... I think he should have won but Johnson was better on the short run, so I just wish that a caution never happened, though that's a big wish, lol. Anyway, we had 3 Johnson choosers, bored at work, Chokin Colts and Fsu1dogs, also blk got incredibly lucky with him as an autopick. But let's get right to the standings to see how things really went.

Top Lineup: Jimmie Johnson, Kurt Busch/ Tony Stewart- 365

Podium

1.) Hard to beat-       341 (Rides Dale Earnhardt Jr. and Smoke to the lead, proving he's hard to beat.)

2.) Roushfenwayguy- 330 (Ticked that his favorite driver that led the most laps didn't win.)

3.) Fsu1dogs-           328

Non- Podium 300 Club

4.) Tigersman-         324 (Picked a better RCR driver than Section.)

5.) Section-              315 (Favorite driver does decent with the handicap, made a really nice Smoke pick)

6.) Chokin Colts-      311

7.) Blkhwkfn-           305 (Some lucky random picks, make sure to make picks this week please.)

200 Club

8.) Uscfannv-            298 (His +20 from winning last session got him just shy of 300.)

9.) Bored at work-     296

ILL55INI-                 296

Mikeyfan-                 296

Spikesgator-             296

13.) Foreplus-            294 (Played the handicaps pretty nicely, 154 out of Kesolowski.)

14.) Tenacfan-           293

15.) Berlyn-                287

16.) M56Nascar56-       276 (Might actually get above the 400 point mark this session.)

17.) RAK-                    272

18.) Edwardsfan-         250 (Speed didn't pay off this week.)

19.) Yokobluewave-     244

Danger Zone

20.) Bradman-            221

21.) Floridawhite-        213 (Mark getting in the crash ruined a sunny day in Florida.)

22.) Coach-                212

23.) D2Moo-               196

24.) Obxyankeefan-    181 (Clint Bowyer puts a yankee fan at risk.)

So congratz to hard to beat who rode the handicap of Dale Earnhardt Jr. and got a great pick of Tony Stewart to bring himself into the lead, but with Martinsville coming up, its still anyone's game to grab first place. And on the bright side as well, the big tie this time (last time it was Kurt Busch and Kyle Busch picks) ended up much better with Kurt Busch and Jeff Gordon this week.

Roushfenwayguy- 2
uscfannv-            2
Fsu1dogs-          2
Bored at Work-    2

Floridawhite-        1
Section-              1
Coach-               1
D2Moo-              1
ILL55INI-            1
Superjags-          1
Tigersman-         1
blkhwkfn-           1
RAK-                  1
Chokin Colts-      1

Now that the fifth race is out of the way, new handicaps are coming into play. Also just a note that these new handicap lists will be effective until after week 10, they will not change again until then, so capitalize on those who were just struggling the first 5 races.

10 handicap: 16th through 23rd

Mark Martin (Well we all know who Fsu will now pick for the next 5 weeks as one of his picks.)

Joey Logano

Scott Speed (Lost 15 points worth of value, doing better than last year.)

Denny Hamlin (Another guy to look after for you bargain hunters.)

Martin Truex Jr.

A.J. Allmendinger

Juan Palbo Montoya (yet another chaser last year now with a handicap.)

Kasey Kahne (4 chasers last year with +10 handicaps!)

+20 handicap: 24th through 31st

David Reutimann (This should lure Mikeyfan over more than once during the next 5 weeks.)

Elliot Sadler

Ryan Newman (A chaser last year at +20!)

David Ragan

Regan Smith

Bobby LaBonte

Brad Kesolowski

Marcos Ambrose

+25 handicap: 32nd through 38th

Travis Kvapil

Sam Hornish Jr.

Robby Gordon

David Gilliland

Mike Bliss

Kevin Conway

Boris Said

+34 handicap (anyone who is below 38th)

RFG's Eliminator League Week 6

Saw Joe Gibbs on his weekly web cast this week and he said if Denny Hamlin didn't run well at Martinsville that his whole organization would start panicking and he would consider some major changes in his teams, Now he didn't elaborate but one would think it would be a RCR deal wear he would switch all his crew chief's around and that is the opinion of many on the JGR Facebook page. No Hendrick for me this week so I am taking a big chance at this track that should have Rick's name on it.

Denny Hamlin

Juan Pablo Montoya 

Straight to the top or straight to the bottom for me this week. Spikes.
