Well, another week another another win for Jimmie Johnson... except that this was on a road course... and Marcos Ambrose fell due to a technicality... so who picked Jimmie? Just one person was willing to stand up to the plate, and that was the doghouse of Fsu, congratulations to him. Let's see how everyone else did though:

Top Lineup: Jimmie Johnson, Robby Gordon (+10 handicap): 375

PODIUM

1.) Bored at Work-    619 (299) (+1)

2.) Berlyn-                596 (298) (+3) (Shows consistency by getting the same nice score twice.)

3.) Fsu1dogs-           594 (329) (+7) (Biggest mover) (Only person this week with the winner, and it shows.)

500 CLUB

4.) ILL55INI-             593 (320) (+5)

5.) Coach-                 587 (277) (-2) (Common picks drop Coach out of podium.)
 
6.) Bradman-            585 (299) (+1)

7.) Obxyankeefan-    577 (289) (-1)

8.) Spikesgator-        576 (211) (-7) (His favorite driver throws away his chance of winning the segment.)

9.) Tigersman-          572 (308) (+3)

10.) Edwardsfan-         561 (308) (+3)

11.) M56Nascar-          552 (277) (-3)

12.) Mikeyfan-            549 (299) (+3)

13.) Chokin Colts-       547 (237) (-10) (Biggest faller) (Late issues for Kurt threw Chokin down the ranks.)

14.) Floridawhite-        542 (277) (+4)

15.) RAK-                   538 (289) (+1)

16.) Roushfenwayguy- 530 (277) (-3)

400 CLUB

17.) Hard to Beat-       496 (313) (+1) (MUCH better than last week...)

18.) Section-               459 (230) (-1) (Score ruined by Bowyer... but at least its better than last week, lol.)

ELIMINATION CLUB

19.) Tenacfan-            377 (197) (0) (It's never a good thing when you pick the last place guy.)

Well, Tenacfan is the one that got the bad end of the stick this segment... both times... and that's how some of our greatest people in recent years (Fsu) have gone down. All in all though, we didn't have a very good segment, with only one person reaching 600, that's pretty bad... and although the new rule was in effect this segment, I don't believe that it had that big of an impact considering the road course. Congratulations to bored at work though, he regained his winning ways and will get the bonus next segment.

Simple. Whatever you say, I didn't really read your explanation and will just trust that you got the numbers right. I don't really know where I finished in each segment anyway, all I know is I haven't gotten tossed yet.From first segment to last: 4, 5, 4, 19, 4, 16, 8, 18. Add all of them together for 78, divide by 8 to get 9.75... I was bored so I didn't mind doing this, lol. 3 top 5s in a row though when there were more people in this competition than any other time is a pretty good feat though... it may indicate that your on the decline however.
