RFG's Eliminator League Week 10

What a race! Especially an 11/1000th second finish, that's pretty big. Still though, it was the tradgedy that is Talladega, where many people lost their drivers on the final few laps. I'm just lucky here along with 6 other people, that Harvick came out with the win. But what about the total picture? Well let's see how it turned out... I will also say if your safety pick was used... if it wasn't... then you won't see anything... could be good, could be bad for your score...

Top Lineup- Kevin Harvick, Juan Pablo Montoya (+10 handicap) - 370


1.) Bored at Work-    375 (Plays the handicaps perfectly... picked the best 2 handicapped drivers... and with his +20 from last session's win gets above the top lineup w/o the winner! Wow!)

2.) Obxyankeefan-    365 (Got the first 1 - 2 of the season... at least pretty sure its first... at Talladega w/o a safety!)

3.) Roushfenwayguy- 360 (With Harvick and a top 5 cap man, came really close to top possible score, big rebound from last session.)


4.) Berlyn-                319

Uscfannv-                 319 (His picks got lost... but Usc is a trustworthy man, his score got fixed.)

6.) Spikesgator-        318

7.) Chokin Colts-       316 (safety used, Columbian to the rescue!)

8.) Bradman-            312 (safety used, Ragan ended up being a great safety, David Ragan that is.)

     RAK-                   312 (safety used)

10.) Section-             310 (Loyalty to his favorite driver pays off!)

     Mikeyfan-            310 (Picked the same picks as Section!? And did good!? It's the apocalypse, run!!!)

12.) Floridawhite-       304 (Very good considering he had no handicaps nor the winner.)

     D2Moo-               304

250 CLUB

14.) ILL55INI-             292

15.) Fsu1dogs-            275 (safety used)

16.) Tigersman-          272


17.) Coach-                249 (Too bad you didn't get the chance to use Ragan, lol.)

      Tenacfan-            249

      M56Nascar-          249

20.) Hardtobeat-         232 (Ryan Newman failed to save Brad Kesolowski... equal but opposite fate of Foreplus.)

21.) Edwardsfan-         207 (Guess who didn't use a safety pick???)

22.) Foreplus-             203 (Kesolowski failed to save him and his Ryan Newman pick... painful to see.)

Overall this has been the best week, partly thanks to the safety pick, but even w/o it, we would still have the best podium ever, with 3rd place being at 360 points, that's just spectacular! In addition, this is the first time nobody got under 200 points... at least pretty sure, bringing up the level of the danger zone to reach people that normally wouldn't have to face it. And one more thing, we had more in the 300 club than those not in it, so even someone that got 300 points ore more could end up going home. Richmond is going to be fun!

Roushfenwayguy- 3
Uscfannv-            3

Fsu1dogs-          2
Bored at Work-    2
RAK-                  2
Chokin Colts-      2
Coach-               2
D2Moo-              2
Tigersman-         2

ILL55INI-            2

Hard to Beat-       1
Floridawhite-        1
M56Nascar56-      1
Spikesgator-        1
Berlyn-                1
Mikeyfan-            1
Obxyankeefan-    1

Edwardsfan-         0
Bradman-            0
Tenacfan-            0
Foreplus-             0

And remember, this is the last week people can take advantage of these handicaps before they get redone, so use them well.

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

Richmond, I will go with Kevin Harvick and Kyle Busch.

I forget the rules, so if I can't use Harvick then I will go with Mark Martin in his place.

Mark Martin and Clint Bowyer. 

I've found my secret to be not picking guys I'm picking for Coach's game, as they usually have trouble.
