Well, a RFR driver finally won, that must mean Bradman got a win... oh wait, he wanted all chevies... but those that decided to use Stewart now instead of later got rewarded nicely. Pretty good week except for a few people. And as for avg. finish, I decided to abolish that since it no longer counts for anything.

Top Lineup- Greg Biffle, Tony Stewart- 365

PODIUM

1.) Obxyankeefan-    335 (Competing with bored at work for most session wins.)

2.) Bored at Work-     324

3.) Coach-                320

NON-PODIUM 300 TIED CLUB

4.) Bradman-            319

5.) Tigersman-          304

Floridawhite-             304

230 CLUB

7.) ILL55INI-            297

8.) M56Nascar-         290

9.) Edwardsfan-         267

10.) Chokin Colts-      254

Mikeyfan-                  254

12.) Hard to Beat-       246 (Handicaps takes him out of the danger zone... not that he still can't be eliminated.)

DANGER ZONE

13.) Roushfenwayguy- 224 (Popular Denny got a top 5, but Jimmie ruined my driver's day.)

14.) Berlyn-                212 (Once avg. finish leader, now slipping down the tubes.)

15.) Fsu1dogs-           210 (With Kurt's failiure, has Fsu's bad session finally come?)

16.) Spikesgator-        192 (Picked the worst possible JGR drivers.)

So pretty good considering nobody picked the winner, but with 8/12 chasers in the top 10, you had to expect something like this would happen.

ILL55INI-            7

Roushfenwayguy- 6
Mikeyfan-            6
Fsu1dogs-           6

Chokin Colts-      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

Jaime McMurray

David Reutimann (+20 for the Glen only)

Joey Logano

Martin Truex Jr.

A.J. Allmendinger

Juan Pablo Montoya (no handicap at the Glen)

(N/A, Brian Vickers)

David Stremme

Joe Nemechek

+34 handicap (anyone who is below 38th unless otherwise listed)


Well, Tony Stewart in the last 5 years here has 3 wins, and 5 top 5s, hard to argue with that... and of course Ambrose has never finished outside the top 5 here, also since I can't pick Hamlin with 4 for 4 in top 10s makes those two easy.

Floridawhite- Jeff Gordon, Marcos Ambrose (JJ & Hamlin week 23 pre-set)

Bradman- Marcos Ambrose, Kyle Busch

Edwardsfan- Marcos Ambrose, Juan Pablo Montoya 

Berlyn- Juan Pablo Montoya, Marcos Ambrose

ILL55INI- Tony Stewart, Marcos Ambrose

Coach- Marcos Ambrose, Tony Stewart


bored at work- Marcos Ambrose, Juan Pablo Montoya


Mikeyfan- Juan Pablo Montoya, Marcos Ambrose


Tigersman- Tony Stewart, Jeff Gordon

Chokin Colts- Juan Pablo Montoya, Carl Edwards


M56Nascar- Tony Stewart, Mark Martin

obxyankeefan-  Marcos Ambrose, Sam Hornish Jr. (+20 handicap)

fsu1dogs- Tony Stewart, Kevin Harvick


Spikesgator- Jimmie Johnson, Tony Stewart


HardtoBeat- Tony Stewart, Jeff Gordon

Common Picks:

Marcos Ambrose- 10

Marco's Ambros and Juan Montoya

I think those are the two to beat this week.  Marco's for Sonoma and JPM for Pocono and Indy.
