WHAT A FINISH! Denny Hamlin comes from fourth and takes advantage of all the bumps and bruises to come out on top after a 4 tire call that was deemed stupid! That will most certainly help ye seven that chose Hamlin, and no I'm not going to list them all, you can find out from the winner's list of whoever went up, lol. Anyway, since it's Monday I better do them now right.... although we have another week off until Pheonix... I'm just happy of what I saw, apart from Burton blowing up, I really wanted him to win.

Top Lineup: Denny Hamlin (+10 handicap), Ryan Newman (+20 handicap)- 385

The Podium

1.) Tigersman-          667 (343) (The runner up from last year makes his first mark!... PSYCHE! He was 9th.)

2.) Chokin Colts-       654 (343)

3.) Foreplus-             644 (350) (Gets the top score despite not picking the winner!)

Non-Podium 600 Club

4.) Section-               623 (308)

5.) M56Nascar56-       619 (343) (Wait! M58 made the top 5! Its the apocaplypse... run!!!)

6.) Uscfannv-             606 (308)

7.) ILL55INI-             604 (308)

500 Club

8.) Berlyn-                595 (308)

9.) Spikesgator-        566 (270) (JPM robbed his value from Hamlin's win.)

10.) Mikeyfan-            563 (267)

11.) RAK-                   562 (290)

12.) Coach-                555 (343)

13.) Fsu1dogs-           542 (214)

14.) Hard to Beat-       541 (200) (Dropped a lot after getting first after the first race.)

15.) D2Moo-               539 (343) (Climbs from the basement up with Coach)

16.) Roushfenwayguy- 533 (203) (His hope in JPM's top 5 went down in flames early.)

17.) Blkhwkfn-            514 (209) (Survives despite a computer crash, will he be able to overcome it?)

18.) Edwardsfan-         503 (253)

400 Club

19.) Tenacfan-            493 (200)

20.) Floridawhite-        466 (253)

21.) Bradman-            464 (243)

22.) Bored at Work-     424 (128) (JPM didn't do that good, Harvick didn't help him much either.)

23.) Obxyankeefan-     404 (223)

Elimination Club

24.) Yokobluewave-      399 (155) (You missed picks too much, I couldn't give you RFG picks, I gave you a chance at redemption, but I didn't end up looking that smart I guess.)

Well, I gave Yokobluewave a chance at redemption, but it ended up not looking so good, he is once again eliminated, and this time he is for good. Also let's throw our condolences to Blk, who I heard is having computer problems, hopefully he can get it up and running by next race to join the party again. Yoko did serve for one thing though... saving Obxyankeefan from elimination, and it was still close...

Roushfenwayguy- 2
uscfannv-            2
Fsu1dogs-          2

RFG's Eliminator League Week 7

Since i can't remember who I picked last race

i am going to say Harvick and Jeff Gordon

if that don't work let me know.

Since this is a new session, whoever you pick is completely legit, its only when you pick the same drivers back to back in the same session, so really you only need to check on even weeks, thus why Coach isn't penalized.
