Well, our first official segment is done, and there were a lot of good results, especially with Kyle Busch, which a whopping 8 people chose... those winner picks are definetly going up, ill keep track of them starting this race. Apart from that, we had very few people choose one of the people in the back, so the points should be high, and it makes you wonder if I was able to overcome my hole... so lets get to the standings and find out:

PODIUM

1.) Edwardsfan-        159 (82) (+2 bonus) (Following his favorite driver is really paying off.) (+4)

2.) Spikesgator-       156 (74) (+2 bonus) (Picked Kyle Busch to redeem his Smoke pick.)   (-1)

Foreplus-                 156 (75) (+2 bonus) (Gets another 8 bonus points... F-PLUS sure knows how to use the handicaps.) (0)

NON-PODIUM 150 CLUB

4.) Fogducker-          155 (75)                                                                                      (-1)

5.) Bored at Work-    152 (73)                                                                                       (-1)

125 CLUB

6.) Mikeyfan-           145 (72) (+2 bonus)                                                                       (0)

D2Moo-                   145 (87) (+2 bonus)                                                                       (+1)

8.) Chokin Colts-      140 (86) (Got 2 and 3, but forgot 1)                                                 (0)

9.) Bradman-           135 (90) (Picked 1-2, that's good enough for high score of the week.)  (+2)

10.) Tigersman-         129 (84) (+2 bonus)                                                                      (0)

100 CLUB

11.) Sfrye-                 123 (70) (+2 bonus)                                                                      (-2)
 
Section-                    123 (86) (+2 bonus) (Busch bros. proved a great combo this week.)     (+3)

13.) River Rat-           120 (87) (+2 bonus)                                                                       (+4)

14.) Fsu1dogs-           118 (82) (+2 bonus) (-10 handicap) (a bit my fault since I didn't really catch it at first, but your not eliminated, I'll make sure to catch anyone that breaks the rule of using the same lineup next time before the race.) (+1)

Floridawhite-               118 (75)                                                                                       (-2)

16.) RAK-                   114 (79) (+2 bonus)                                                                      (0)

17.) Berlyn-                113 (73) (+2 bonus)                                                                      (-4)

18.) ILL55INI-            100 (77)                                                                                        (+1)

NEEDS HELP WITH PICKS CLUB

19.) Roushfenwayguy- 95 (80) (Had a huge week, but it was just enough to save me... phew!) (+1)

20.) Tenacfan-            89 (59) (Two driver that didn't really do good spell doom for Tenacfan where everyone else did great.) (-2) (ELIMINATED)

So this week we say goodbye to Tenacfan, the first eliminated... but it just goes to show that this game is entirely different due to this brand new system of points.

RFG's Eliminator Game Race 5

Especially considering that the points reset to 0 at the end of each segment
Ooops!  I forgot that the points reset.  I'm playing so many different games, I can't keep the rules straight.  Can you see my red face? Embarassed
