Well, Tony Stewart has finally got a win, and he's a very popular driver, so who picked him... well there's a Tony Stewart fan up for elimination!!... oh wait, he didn't choose him... nope it seems like nobody chose Tony Stewart, quite a shocker for any week past july Daytona, but at least Carl Edwards did plenty people proud as well. So let's see where everyone stacks heading into the last race before the chase:

Top Lineup- Tony Stewart, Carl Edwards- 370


Tigersman-          350 (Once again he has taken the top spot in this game, going 3 in a row with week's led, he has finally come to life in a huge way!)
Coach-                330 (Has been really heating up in this game just before chase time.)

Bradman-            305


Edwardsfan-         303

Fsu1dogs-           303

200 CLUB

Roushfenwayguy- 285

Floridawhite-        279

Obxyankeefan-    277

M56Nascar-          267 (Survives due to engine failiure.)

ILL55INI-            262 (Johnson did really good, Kahne... issue prone yet again.)

Chokin Colts-       230


Berlyn-                192 (Good day going sour for Harvick also spelled the same for Berlyn... should have chosen her favorite driver.)

Mikeyfan-            164 (Well Hamlin did look promising until his engine gave way...)

Bored at Work-    121 (And there is a new person with the lowest total ever in a week, and that is... wait... this can't be right... ITS THE APOCALYPSE, bored at work actually did horrible! Hopefully you can rebound, because you weren't the only one that did bad this week.)


Hard to Beat-       186 (Denny looked so promising, but engine failiure ruined any chance of Hard to Beat staying alive in the competition.)

Well, it really sucks that Hard to Beat went down in this game due to engine failiure, most likely M56 would be eliminated if it wasn't for that, so he should be thanking the stars... but this is just what happens sometimes in a competitive sport, people go down, and there's nothing you can do about it. It's been a great ride having you in this competition Hard to Beat, and maybe I'll see you here next year.

As for the rest of us, Tigersman has done it again, showing that he may be the man to beat come chase time, but is he coming out of his shell too early??? Probably not, but who knows!? Also Shoking our bottom 3, they were all of the people that had the best avg. finishes before I stopped keeping record of them, and Bored at Work with the lowest score in this game ever after all the good weeks he's had, simply shocking!

I will also take this time to explain the chase, this applies for everyone that makes it there obviously:

Weeks 27-28: A free for all, meaning you could have the same lineup both weeks, in addition, bonuses maybe thrown in. (revised from original) 2 people will be eliminated!

Weeks 29-31: You may switch one or both of your drivers, like weeks 3-14, yet this is a 3 week peroid, if you switch away from a driver, you can't pick him again, in addition, bonuses maybe thrown in. (You also can't keep 1 driver for all 3 weeks) 3 people will be eliminated! (Bored at Work's bonus will be activated this session, should he make it here.)

Weeks 32-36: You must use 10 different drivers throughout the whole contest, like weeks 15-26, in addition, bonuses maybe thrown in. The champion will be crowned at the end!

Winning Drivers Chosen:
(Remember, whoever leads this next week will get +15 bonuses throughout each session in the chase,  2nd gets +15 the first 2, third +15 the first, if there is a tie, your bonus gets rounded down, so right now ILL55INI is the only one that would get a bonus, and a big one at that.)

ILL55INI-            8

Mikeyfan-            7
Bored at Work-     7
Roushfenwayguy- 7
Fsu1dogs-           7
Chokin Colts-       7

(N/A, Brian Vickers)

David Stremme

Joe Nemechek

+34 handicap (anyone who is below 38th )

For the final race at Richmond before the chase, there are a lot of danger drivers that I'm watching out for right now, the only lineup I can say would be safe enough for me at this point is Kyle Busch and Jimmie Johnson.

Bradman- Kyle Busch, Kevin Harvick

Edwardsfan-  Denny Hamlin, Kasey Kahne (+10 handicap)

Berlyn- Kyle Busch, Jeff Burton

Chokin Colts- 
Carl Edwards, Kevin Harvick
