Well, we had 4 lineups that picked the unstoppable lineup of Ambrose and JPM, good thing I decreased their handicaps or else everyone probably would have picked them, lol. Not to say that Chokin Colts didn't choose a great lineup either, he got 1st and 5th, anyway, lets go to the standings, where I'm sure all but a few did very well and those that chose one wrong driver will suffer the consequences.

Top Lineup- Juan Pablo Montoya, Kurt Busch/ Marcos Ambrose/ A.J. Allmendinger (+10 handicap)- 365


1.) Bored at Work-    689 (365) (+1) (I forgot to add your +20 bonus to last week, so I added it now... perfect lineup... bored at work wins again... why am I not surprised... lol)

2.) Obxyankeefan-    646 (311) (-1) (Considering his unorthodox pick of Sam Hornish, he did very well.)

3.) Coach-                636 (316) (0)


4.) Edwardsfan-         632 (365) (+5) (Biggest mover.) (One of the many that chose the perfect lineup.)

5.) Bradman-            631 (312) (-1)

6.) Mikeyfan-            619 (365) (+4)

7.) ILL55INI-            613 (316) (0)

8.) Floridawhite-        608 (304) (-3) (Duplicated his score from last week with picking 2 weeks in advance.)

9.) Chokin Colts-       604 (350) (+1)

500 CLUB

10.) Tigersman-          584 (280) (-5) (Biggest faller) (One of the few that couldn't top 300 this week.)

11.) Berlyn-                577 (365) (+3) (Breaks out of her slump in a big way.)

12.) M56Nascar56-      547 (257) (-4) (Considering how well everyone else did, it left M56 falling down the elevator without an E-Brake.)

13.) Roushfenwayguy- 540 (316) (0) (The lineup that hasn't finished below 3rd in 6 starts did, but it was still good.)

14.) Hard to Beat-       526 (280) (-2) (The two Sprint road veteran team was good, but not great like what most other people had.)

450 CLUB

15.) Fsu1dogs-           486 (276) (0) (Would be a decent score for any week except this one.)


16.) Spikesgator-        417 (225) (0) (Who would have guessed that Jimmie Johnson would be the death of someone?)

Well, with the great roadcourse the only person that chose a driver outside the top 20 got eliminated, it didn't help that he was in last before this week even began, and if you get the lowest score for two weeks in a row... well there's just no way your going to get out of elimination is there? So Spikesgator will be leaving the competition just moments before the chase, which is coming up in just two more sessions! Can you hang on until then??? Also Bored at Work won another session... I have made my decision on what your reward will be Bored at Work (So long as obx or Mikeyfan don't win the next two session in a row.) However, you will have to wait until the chase to find out what it is, stay tuned!
