Oh the carnage that is Daytona... I really should have put a safety pick in for this week shouldn't I? Anyway, 9 people were still able to find the winner, though most struggled with their second driver... after that big wreck, and wrecks all over it made things really bad for this week, we will just have to see how bad it is.

Top Lineup: Kevin Harvick, Kasey Kahne (+10 handicap)- 375

PODIUM

1.) Obxyankeefan-   671 (355) (+5) Best lineup chosen this week, the only one with two drivers in the top 5!

2.) Section-              657 (346) (+5) Had an amazing week where so many others struggled.

3.) ILL55INI-            648 (288) (-1) Thanks to Harvick his Stewart pick didn't blow him up.

NON-PODIUM 600 CLUB

4.) Tigersman-         646 (355) (+5)

5.) RAK-                   629 (269) (-2) Avoids havoc due to random autopicks... must have been his strategy...

6.) Spikesgator-        610 (245) (-5) Well Kahne was a great pick at least.

7.) Hard to Beat-       606 (355) (+7)

500 CLUB

8.) Fsu1dogs-           573 (291) (+4)

9.) Bored at Work-    549 (346) (+8) (Biggest mover) HUGE rebound from last week!

10.) Bradman-            542 (220) (-5) Well at least the handicap made Ragan's horrible finish seem like a 31st.

11.) M56Nascar-          538 (208) (-7) Jr. did good... as for Kyle Busch...

12.) Edwardsfan-         512 (225) (-1) Edwardsfan's faith in Edwards paid off this week.

13.) Chokin Colts-       510 (244) (0)

400 CLUB

14.) Floridawhite-        485 (174) (-7)

15.) Mikeyfan-            479 (251) (+1)

16.) Coach-                448 (251) (+2) Made 250 despite the McMurray pick thanks to handicaps.

17.) Roushfenwayguy- 432 (141) (-8) (Biggest faller) Third worst score ever in this game this week!

SAFETY CLUB

18.) Berlyn-                363 (131) (-3) Tied for the worst score ever in this game for a weekly score...


Well, a fitting end due to this Daytona, Berlyn, the highest average person before this session, ends up last, just showing how unpredictable this race was. And thus due to her ending up in the last position, she will be the activator of the save... which will make things oh that much more interesting the next session, as two people will be eliminatedSurprised!!!

RFG's Eliminator League Week 19

with the less than stellar weekend (excluding Nationwide performance)... i think I'm going to make a change....
I rode the RFR wave to the end last year, and I feel bad not taking any RFR drivers.... I haven't lost hope yet....


So Jimmie Johnson and Greg Biffle......please...

Even though Toyota dominated the Nationwide, I just don't have confidence on their cupside performance this weekend....
