Well, Greg Biffle finally got a win in the chase, usually something he gets earlier, but he's not good in the second half anyway, Jimmie Johnson though also got second, so this spells some doom toward other chasers, but grace for those that decided to roll on him this week. Lets get right to the standings of only 11 now. (+16 or -8 represents bonus)

Top Lineup- Greg Biffle, Jimmie Johnson/Kevin Harvick/Tony Stewart- 360


1.) Bradman-            366 (+16) (Only one positional driver from a perfect score, of course that +16 sure does help too.)

Chokin Colts-           366 (+16) (Wow lots of people followed the amazing Gordon, Biffle duo.)

3.) Roushfenwayguy- 361 (+16) (Great Roush-fenway duo puts me over the top lineup points!)


4.) ILL55INI-             357 (-8) (Stayed near the top due to those 15 bonus points.)

5.) Fsu1dogs-            352 (-8) (The perfect lineup! Except that he missed the bonus...)

6.) Coach-                321 (+16)

7.) Tigersman-          317 (-8) (Two great drivers, just no winner.) (Jeff Gordon replacing Carl Edwards= 5 pts, but I doubt 5 pts is worth using it now.)


8.) Edwardsfan-         297 (0) (Only one not to play the bonus game.)

9.) Mikeyfan-            286 (-8) (Faith in Kurt Busch didn't work out as well as planned.)

10.) Berlyn-                276 (+16) (David Reutimann ruins a great run, but at least she got the bonus easily.)

11.) M56Nascar-          262 (+16) (JPM had issues again, leaving the same for M56.)

Really, we had one of the best weeks ever, but don't fret those in the danger zone, there are still two more races, not 1, to redeem your scores, but considering that 3 people are going this segment, you guys will need to fight with this next track. Remember that you can't use the same exact lineup as last time.

10 handicap: 13th through 20th

Ryan Newman

Jaime McMurray

Mark Martin

Juan Pablo Montoya 

David Reutimann

Kasey Kahne

Dale Earnhardt Jr.

Martin Truex Jr.

+20 handicap: 21st through 28th

Joey Logano

A.J. Allmendinger

Paul Menard

Marcos Ambrose

David Ragan

Brad Kesolowski

Scott Speed

Sam Hornish Jr.

+25 handicap: 29th through 35th

Elliot Sadler

Regan Smith

Bobby LaBonte

Travis Kvapil 

David Gilliland

Kevin Conway

Robby Gordon

+34 handicap (anyone who is below 35th )

FOR THIS SESSION, EVERYONE must swap out AT LEAST 1 driver between week to week, like in weeks 3-14, however, since this is a 3 week session, you must plan better than then, and to make sure of that, I will not allow you to pick a driver all 3 times this session, just swapping out your other driver, and once you swap out a driver, you can't use him again.

Bonus for this week? Guess who will move the most positions in the chase (rise or fall). For the one that falls the most, +25 comes your way (includes all drivers in tie for this criteria.) Next most gets +15, and anyone that at least drops/rises at least 1 pos. will get +5. Here are two examples:

Jimmie Johnson drops 2 positions in chase, while Denny Hamlin drops 5, and all other chasers drop 1 or fewer. Denny Hamlin picks would get +25 points, Jimmie Johnson picks +15, and all others either +5 or 0. Considering that there is no penalty, all should partake in this bonus.

For me, I'm going to use Johnson for the last two races this segment... I'll also save Kyle Busch and go with the obvious Matt Kenseth... probably a lot of people will follow my suit... my bonus will be Kyle Busch coming in for the rebound here.

Roushfenwayguy- Jimmie Johnson, Matt Kenseth (bonus = Kyle Busch)

Bradman- Greg Biffle, Carl Edwards (can't use Greg Biffle 3rd race) (bonus= Carl Edwards)

Edwardsfan- Carl Edwards, Matt Kenseth (bonus= Matt Kenseth)

Berlyn- Jeff Gordon, Tony Stewart (bonus= Carl Edwards)

ILL55INI-  Jimmie Johnson, Greg Biffle (bonus= Kurt Busch)

Coach-  Jimmie Johnson, Greg Biffle (bonus= Greg Biffle)

Mikeyfan- Carl Edwards, Greg Biffle (bonus= Jimmie Johnson)

Tigersman- Kevin Harvick, Matt Kenseth (bonus= Kurt Busch) (TM bonus= Jimmie Johnson)

Chokin Colts- Jamie McMurray (+10 handicap), Matt Kenseth (bonus= Kurt Busch)

fsu1dogs- Mark Martin, Greg Biffle (can't use Greg Biffle 3rd race) (bonus= Jimme Johnson)

M56Nascar- Kyle Busch, Carl Edwards (bonus= Denny Hamlin)

Common Picks:

Greg Biffle: 5

Carl Edwards- 4

Matt Kenseth- 4

Jimmie Johnson: 3

Jeff Gordon replacing Carl Edwards= 5 pts, but I doubt 5 pts is worth using it now.

Right you are, RFG.  Not using my bonus yet.

My picks for this week are Harvick and Kenseth.  My personal bonus pick is Jimmie Johnson.  My choice of driver to move the most positions is Kurt Busch.

My picks this week are:

Jimmie Johnson (this is his house)
Greg Bifle (he has a bigger desire to win than Kenseth)

Bifle as my Bonus (hope that's legal)
