Well, Jeff Gordon finally ended his drought, unfortunately, we did not end ours as nobody picked Jeff Gordon, so when will we pick our first winner? Who knows! But if there's a place to wager your odds on a winner, its Las Vegas. Anyways lets get to the standings and see who got the bonuses. And one more thing, Fredneck was eliminated since he missed picks for both week.... Bradman has to remember too or else he could be out early after winning the whole thing last year.

1.) Foreplus-             144 (83) (Has two amazing picks to launch him into the lead.)

2.) Tigersman-          140 (60) (Ryan Newman preserves the podium for Tigersman.)

3.) Fogducker-          135 (77) (Great way to start his first season in this game.)

4.) Fsu1dogs-           132 (53)

5.) Roushfenwayguy- 130 (61) (Johnson saves the Edwards pick that looked so promising at the beginning.)

6.) Edwardsfan-         128 (47) (Fell straight out of the podium with a less than mediocre performance.)

7.) River Rat-            124 (78)

8.) Spikesgator-        118 (51)

9.) Sfrye-                  117 (60)

10.) RAK-                   113 (61)

11.) Bored at Work-     112 (59)

12.) Mikeyfan-            108 (63) (Kyle Busch ended up being a great pick, not so much for any MWR driver.)

13.) Berlyn-                104 (87) (What better way to rebound than the best score of the week?)

14.) Section-               93 (78) (Rebounded quite well like berlyn, but no best score of the week here.)

15.) ILL55INI-            89 (62)

16.) D2Moo-               84 (53)

17.) Chokin Colts-       80 (58)

18.) Tenacfan2-          79 (79) (Very nice one week total, but shows how important consistency is over one good week.)

19.) Bradman-            50 (0) (Please make sure to make picks starting next week, I will give random autopicks starting next week, however, those picks do not have handicaps.)

So Foreplus gets +4, Tigersman +3, and Fogducker +2 heading into the new segment. From here on out though, only first place will receive a +3 handicap for winning a session. In addition, I would still like more people so we can have an interesting chase, as this is the last week to join the game.

From now until week 14, you must switch out at least one of your drivers from an odd week to an even week (So if during week 3 you have Carl Edwards and Jimmie Johnson, during week 4 you could pick Jeff Gordon and Jimmie Johnson, and during week 5 the session starts over, so you could pick Jeff Gordon and Jimmie Johnson again.) Might be a bit confusing for those of you that are new, so please ask questions if you don't get it.

Jaime McMurray

Ryan Newman

Joey Logano

Juan Pablo Montoya
