Well, all in all we had a pretty bad week, but wait! David Reutimann won, that must mean that Mikeyfan got a win... oh wait, no he didn't... nobody (cough, Edwardsfan) even picked the second placeman of Carl Edwards! We will just have to see how bad things turned out.

Top Lineup: David Reutimann (+10 handicap), Carl Edwards- 375


1.) ILL55INI-            330 (Gordon did great, Kahne with his handicap did great as well.)

Bored at Work-         330

3.) Mikeyfan-            317  (Despite not picking Reutimann he did pretty good.)

200 CLUB

4.) Floridawhite-        268

5.) Edwardsfan-         258

6.) Spikesgator-        250

7.) Obxyankeefan-    241

8.) Hard to Beat-       239

9.) Chokin Colts-       236

10.) M56Nascar-         235

11.) Berlyn-               207


12.) Roushfenwayguy- 199

13.) Coach-                197 (Busch bros. not very potent this time.)
      Fsu1dogs-            197

15.) Tigersman-         183

16.) Section-              159 (Look at the bright side, things can only go up from here right???)

RAK-                         159

18.) Bradman-           156 (Falls down on his face again, truly a surprise after getting runner-up last season.)

So all in all, not very great... we had 7 people below 200, and I'm pretty sure that's a new record, also the closest person to the podium not in the podium is 32 points off even getting 300... not the kind of buffers people were looking for with a track like Indy coming up... and with two people getting eliminated this session, there are a lot of people that will be scrambling to make sure they get good picks or they could go home.

ILL55INI-            7 
Section-              7

Roushfenwayguy- 6
Mikeyfan-            6
Fsu1dogs-           6

Chokin Colts-      5
RAK-                  5
Coach-               5 
Bored at Work-    5
Tigersman-         5

Floridawhite-        4
Spikesgator-        4
Obxyankeefan-    4

M56Nascar56-      3
Berlyn-                3

Edwardsfan-         2
Hard to Beat-       2

Bradman-            1

10 handicap: 16th through 23rd

Martin Truex Jr.

Jaime McMurray

David Reutimann

Juan Pablo Montoya

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

A.J. Allmendinger

Paul Menard

+20 handicap: 24th through 31st

Brad Kesolowski

David Ragan

Scott Speed

Sam Hornish Jr.

Elliot Sadler

Bobby LaBonte

Travis Kvapil

Robby Gordon

David Gilliland

Kevin Conway

David Stremme

Mike Bliss

+34 handicap (anyone who is below 38th)

(The handicap lists will be revamped after Indy, and will remain until the chase.)

(Some drivers maybe added to this list to reduce their handicaps for Indy, though unlikely.)

Well, over the last 5 Indy starts, either Tony Stewart or Jimmie Johnson have won all of them, so I'll pick Jimmie, and since I can't pick Tony, I'll go with Mr. top 5s a lot Jeff Gordon.

Well maybe for the FIRST week i wont have a DNF....
So I'll take Tony Stewart and Carl Edwards... I need a huge week from both of them obviously to jump ahead of everyone else.
