Well, another race, another come from behind that ends up tearing Jeff Gordon in the heart... honestly I can't imagine what's going though that guy's head right now... anyway... we ended up having... if I counted correctly, 9 out of 22 people pick Kyle Busch... that is a lot of wins going into the win column... after a huge week at Talladega, we may see the highest scores ever, so be prepared as someone that scored high maybe going home. (The +/- # reprensents how much you moved up... or fell)

Top Lineup: Jeff Gordon, Kyle Busch - 370

PODIUM

1.) Obxyankeefan-    700 (335) (+1) (The Yankees triumph this time...)

2.) Roushfenwayguy- 689 (329) (+1) (I scored more than anyone else before this week (besides blk in a week that didn't count)... and I still get second... I feel robbed...)

3.) RAK-                   682 (370*) (+5) (He actually got the top lineup... think this is a first ever!)

NON-PODIUM 600 CLUB

4.) Section-              675 (365) (+6 biggest mover) (Got 1st and 3rd, but that couldn't even get him the podium with another 300 week as well.)

5.) Mikeyfan-            666 (356) (+5) (The number of the beast... has to be a beast to pick Martin Truex Jr. and score as high as he did.)

6.) Berlyn-                654 (335) (-2) (And yes this is without Kyle Busch on her lineup, but with 335 still moves down spots!)

7.) Chokin Colts-       651 (335) (0)

8.) Floridawhite-        639 (335) (+4)

9.) Uscfannv-            629 (309) (-5)

10.) Bored at Work-     600 (225) (-9 biggest faller) (Finally shows he doesn't control the races with Mark Martin going down the tubes.)

500 CLUB

11.) ILL55INI-             594 (302) (+3)

12.) D2Moo-                578 (274) (0)

13.) Spikesgator-         567 (249) (-7) (Why didn't Spikes pick his favorite driver here... the world may never know...)

14.) Coach-                 564 (315) (+3)

15.) Bradman-            562 (250) (-7) (Gets taken down due to Sam Hornish Jr.)

16.) Tigersman-          546 (274) (0) (Rather consistent this session, scoring 272 the first week.)

17.) M56Nascar56-       543 (294) (0) (Didn't even reach 300 with the winner due to Tony Stewart.)

18.) Hard to Beat-        501 (269) (+2) (Well... he was pretty easy to beat this session...)

Edwardsfan-                501 (294) (+3) (He actually didn't pick Carl Edwards!... oh wait... he got top 5... IRONY!)

400 CLUB

20.) Tenacfan-            492  (243) (-3)

21.) Fsu1dogs-            472 (197) (-6) (Just like last year, the doghouse finds a way to go from cloud 9 to cloud 1, luckily survives the bad session this time though, so what happens this year for him remains a mystery...)

22.) Foreplus-              468 (265) (0) (Ryan Newman got 167, but he wasn't powerful enough of a saver.)


Let me put it this way... at the most through any session before this one we would have only the podium above 325, this week... 9 people accomplished that. In addition, this is the first time the lowest score has been above 400... 68 points above 400 for that matter... that's a lot of room that got eliminate for Foreplus, whom unfortunately is eliminated since Fsu didn't lose enough... but 4 points... it was very close. Makes me wonder what is going to happen next session... and though I would like to think it will be this good... history says it won't be.

Winning Drivers chosen:

Roushfenwayguy- 4 (+1)

Uscfannv-            3
Section-              3 (+1)
Chokin Colts-      3 (+1)
RAK-                  3 (+1)

Fsu1dogs-          2
Bored at Work-    2
Coach-               2
D2Moo-              2
Tigersman-         2
ILL55INI-            2
Floridawhite-        2 (+1)
Mikeyfan-            2 (+1)
M56Nascar56-      2 (+1)
Obxyankeefan-    2 (+1)

Hard to Beat-       1
Spikesgator-        1
Berlyn-                1
Edwardsfan-         1 (+1)

Bradman-            0
Tenacfan-            0
Foreplus-             0

And now for the new handicap lists! These will stay in effect until week 16, a week after this game takes a tweak change... which I will stress starting next session... where you can't pick either of the drivers you chose the previous week of the same session.

10 handicap: 16th through 23rd

Ryan Newman (Moved up in points, but still has a handicap)

Joey Logano

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

Jaime McMurray (Daytona points don't last forever.)

Paul Menard (He's falling down the list fast.)

A.J. Allmendinger

Kasey Kahne (He is still here and flying low this year... probably can't wait for Hendrick.)

David Ragan

+20 handicap: 24th through 31st

Brian Vickers

Scott Speed

Brad Kesolowski

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

Marcos Ambrose

Sam Hornish Jr.

Elliot Sadler

Bobby LaBonte

Travis Kvapil

+25 handicap: 32nd through 38th

Regan Smith

Robby Gordon

David Gilliland

Kevin Conway

Mike Bliss

Max Papis

+34 handicap (anyone who is below 38th)
