RFG's Chase Eliminator Week 5

A truly devistating week for some, as only half of the chase drivers had days in the top 10, the other half.... none above 20th, obviously a huge spread that could leave some really under the mark, Let's see how the standings changed, as I expect a lot of change went on this week:

Top Lineup: Tony Stewart, Clint Bowyer- 365

PODIUM

1.) Tigersman-           633 (316) (+0 B) (+6) (Uses bonus to propel himself 5 spots into the lead.

2.) Berlyn-               624 (348) (+15 B) (+8) (Biggest mover.) (In a week full of misery and woe, there is one shining light, and she was next to last... huge ladder climb! Also she was the only one to get the winner.)

3.) Roushfenwayguy- 614 (253) (+5 B) (0)

NON- PODIUM 550 CLUB

4.) Chokin Colts-       571 (205) (+0 B) (-3)

5.) ILL55INI-             567 (210) (+0 B) (-1)

6.) Fsu1dogs-            562 (210) (+0 B) (-1)

DANGER ZONE

7.) Coach-                 536 (215) (+5 B) (-1)

8.) Bradman-            482 (116) (+15 B) (-7) (Biggest faller) (Not only did he pick the best bonus chosen, likely going the opposite way he imagined, but he also fell off a cliff as he was first before this week...)

9.) Edwardsfan-         436 (139) (+0 B) (-1)

10.) Mikeyfan-           387 (101) (+0 B) (-1) (And we have a new lowest score for a week ever!!! Going to be really hard to dig out of this hole...)

11.) M56Nascar-         386 (124) (+0 B) (0) (Only one to pick Kyle, but that didn't help at all... same hole as Mikey is in.)

So Mikeyfan and M56, even Edwardsfan have their work cut out for them, as the bottom two need about 95 points above Bradman to stay in this thing, or about 150 to Coach... the real race will be to avoid that final elimination spot, though Mikey and M56 are by no means out, their chances, sorry to say, are slim. And all this happened after such a great week last week, but that's what can happen in just one week when Roush Fenway has engine problems with all 3 chase drivers. Also, assume that we have 3 over 600 and Tigersman is the leader right now.

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 )

Well let's think of a nice bonus... got one, guess the driver that leads the most laps, again, should be a pretty simple concept, and obviously the winner may not be this guy, could be the guy that crashes with 10 laps to go. Scoring for this is as followed:

For the driver that leads the most laps: +25 bonus points comes your way, if your driver is in the top 3 in laps led, +15, if your driver is in the top 5 in laps led, +10, and if you driver even leads one lap, +5 points. Don't think I need to show examples because this is pretty simple.

For my picks this week, I already stated that I'm using Johnson and Kyle Busch, that isn't going to change either, just need to hope for the best, but I like to think that I'm pretty safe in making it to the finals unless both of them choke. For my bonus, only Jimmie over the past 5 years has more laps led than Kurt Busch, its just that Kurt always finds some way to choke by the end of the race, but he is a great driver to choose for this bonus.

Roushfenwayguy- Jimmie Johnson, Kyle Busch (bonus= Kurt Busch)

Bradman- Jimmie Johnson, Kyle Busch (bonus= Kyle Busch)

Edwardsfan- Kevin Harvick, Jeff Gordon (bonus= Jimmie Johnson)


Berlyn- Tony Stewart, Jimmie Johnson (bonus= Jeff Gordon)

ILL55INI-  Jimmie Johnson, Kyle Busch (bonus= Jimmie Johnson)

Coach-  Jimmie Johnson, Carl Edwards (bonus= Kyle Busch)

Mikeyfan- David Reutimann (+10 handicap), Martin Truex Jr. (+10 handicap) (bonus= Reutimann or Truex????)


Tigersman- Jimmie Johnson, Jeff Gordon (bonus= Jimmie Johnson)


Chokin Colts- Jimme Johnson, Kyle Busch (bonus= Jimmie Johnson)

fsu1dogs- Jeff Gordon, Jimmie Johnson (bonus= Kurt Busch)


M56Nascar- Jimmie Johnson, Kyle Busch (bonus= Jimmie Johnson)

Common Picks:

Jimmie Johnson- 8

Kyle Busch-         5

Jeff Gordon-        3
