Well, usually when Jimmie Johnson wins, unlike last week, will signify that we had a good week. This time that signal didn't disappoint, as we had someone get a perfect score, and 2 others very close to it. So it looks like everyone did the job of building up their buffers for Daytona, but did everyone do good here? Lets find out!

PODIUM

1.) Spikesgator-         365 (Once again he is sitting pretty after the first segment race with perfect picks.)

2.) ILL55INI-             360 (Got the 1,3 which the 3 almost won too.)

RAK-                        360

NON-PODIUM 300 CLUB

4.) M56Nascar-          330 (Yup, SHR did fantastic with 2 top 5s this race.)

5.) Bradman-            322 (He finally got a winner!)

6.) Obxyankeefan-    316 (Gets very high due to making picks on the pick 3 game... maybe he though he already made picks for this one.)

7.) Floridawhite-        311

Section-                   311

250 CLUB

9.) Roushfenwayguy- 291

Tigersman-              291

11.) Edwardsfan-      287

12.) Fsu1dogs-        282

13.) Chokin Colts     266 (Winner spoiled by JPM's aggression.)

14.) Hard to Beat-    251 (JPM ruined Hard to Beat's score too.)

DANGER ZONE

15.) Berlyn-             232

16.) Mikeyfan-         228

17.) Bored at Work-  203 (Its a good thing he got those bonus points, else he would be in last.)

18.) Coach-             197 (Bad day for JPM puts Coach in a bad position.)

Good news: We had 8 people that finished over 300, 4/9ths of our field, almost 1/2, and our podium is almost perfect, much better than last session. The bad news is that Daytona is next week, so anything can happen, especially those not in the danger zone... and to top it all off, all 3 people that are eligible for the save are in the danger zone... we could very well see it get triggered this session, and it can only be used once.

Roushfenwayguy- 6
ILL55INI-            6 (+1) 
Section-              6 (+1)

Mikeyfan-            5
Fsu1dogs-           5

RFG - Thanks for the heads up.  I thought I was allowed to carry 1 of my 2 picks forward, just not both of them. 

I'll go with Harvick & Dale Jr.
