Well it seems as if my change from Kyle to Kurt went for the better this week... although Kyle did cut my other driver's tire... anyway, those who picked Jimmie Johnson are likely to see the pain below, and congratz to the 3 that picked Kurt, Berlyn, Fsu, and myself. And in other news, Mikeyfan's streak just got snapped!

Top Lineup: Kurt Busch, Jaime McMurray (+10 handicap)- 380

PODIUM

1.) Fsu1dogs-           365 (Busch bros. puts speculation of Fsu slipping this season to bed!)

2.) Berlyn-                350

3.) Floridawhite-        335

NON-PODIUM 300 CLUB

4.) RAK-                   319

5.) Mikeyfan-            309 (Uses his 50 handicap/bonus points to bring him over 300.)

200 CLUB

6.) Bradman-            294

7.) Roushfenwayguy- 293 (Winner pick goes down in flames from Kyle Busch incident.)

8.) Tenacfan-            290

9.) Obxyankeefan-    289

10.) Section-              276

11.) Bored at Work-    258

12.) Chokin Colts-      247 (Was able to rebound somewhat from Johnson thanks to Reutimann and bonuses.)

13.) Tigersman-         245

14.) Hard to Beat-       237

15.) Coach-                227 (3rd in Kyle goes to waste due to Johnson.)

Spikesgator-               227

DANGER ZONE

17.) M56Nascar-          212

18.) Edwardsfan-         196

19.) ILL55INI-             171

Uscfannv-                   171

Well, those that picked Johnon are all on the bottom... besides Chokin Colts, all the people that picked Johnson finished below everyone else that didn't pick him, that means that all of the people in the bottom 6 picked Johnson... ouch! Warned you guys that Johnson was risky, lol. Anyway, hopefully next week will be better for some people, or else we could have a low scoring session for some that decide to worship and follow Johnson.

REMINDER: Starting next session, you will need to switch out both your drivers from the lineup, not just 1, so more thinking will need to go into making your lineups each week.

Winning Drivers chosen:

Roushfenwayguy- 5 (+1)

Mikeyfan-            4
ILL55INI-            4
Section-              4
Chokin Colts-      4

Uscfannv-           3
RAK-                  3
Coach-               3
Bored at Work-    3
Tigersman-         3
Fsu1dogs-          3 (+1)

Floridawhite-        2
M56Nascar56-      2
Obxyankeefan-    2
Berlyn-                2 (+1)

Hard to Beat-       1
Spikesgator-        1
Edwardsfan-         1

Bradman-            0
Tenacfan-            0

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.)

Regan Smith

Robby Gordon

Guess I'm still not done clarifying, lol. Once a new segment starts all picks are reset, meaning that you could pick Denny Hamlin and Kyle Busch this week and next week and it would still be legit, no matter what time it is in the season. Once someone is eliminated, its basically like the game starts out all anew (except for bonuses) and that someone is eliminated. Still, I do understand that Kyle Busch could do bad here and you dont want to jinx him lol





Ok, well I am watching practice and you talked me into it. While I do think Joey will run well, I just think he will get a top 10, Denny and Rowdy are going to be top 5's unless bad luck get them. RFG.... Put down Denny Hamlin and Kyle"Rowdy"Busch for Spikes.
yeah I changed my picks LOL. Spikes.

Thanks for the clarification, I will probabaly need Rowdy next week at Michigan he is very good there. I will stay with my picks, If I change now I would probably regret it. Thanks RFG, you should be a podium guy this week. Spikes.Guess I'm still not done clarifying, lol.
