Well, another one is in the books, and who would have predicted a finish like that, or that Kevin Harvick would win? Well there was one person, and that was Bored at Work, congratulations for being the sole person to pick the winner. Apart from that though, Kyle, Jimmie, and Carl all did very well, so we must have done well as a whole right? Lets find out... my prayers go out to Fogducker, but you maybe OK, after all, two people, Edwardsfan and Bradman didn't make picks, and they have no backup for me to go to RFG picks, I hope these two can make it to this week's picks, but its hard for me to find them when they posted last about 10 days ago... anyways, here is the standings:

PODIUM

1.) Berlyn-                85

2.) D2Moo-               83

3.) Foreplus-             82 (The best player through the first 5 weeks award goes to Foreplus, once again she's up top.)

NON-PODIUM 75 CLUB

4.) Bored at Work-     81 (Only one to choose the winner, but Smoke wasn't in the top 10.)

5.) Mikeyfan-            80 (Picked the right pair of RFR drivers)

6.) Roushfenwayguy- 78

Tigersman-              78 (Intentionally copied my picks without regret Surprised.)

Floridawhite-            78

9.) ILL55INI-           77

65 CLUB

10.) Spikesgator-     73

11.) Sfrye-               72

RAK-                       72

River Rat-                72

14.) Fsu1dogs-         67

Section-                   67

55 CLUB

16.) Chokin Colts-     62

17.) Edwardsfan-       60 (+3 handicap, Kyle Busch random pick... your still in this as long as you pick this week.)

DANGER ZONE

18.) Fogducker-        39 (Ya... so about Denny Hamlin...)

19.) Bradman-          36 (Our defending champion forgot to pick, now he could be out earlier than anyone would have anticipated.)

Winning Drivers Chosen:


Spikesgator-    2

Bored at Work- 2


Tigersman-      1

Berlyn-            1

D2Moo-           1

Bradman-        1

Edwardsfan-     1

Fsu1dogs-        1

Section-           1

RAK-                1

River Rat-         1

ILL55INI-          1

Fogducker-        1

Now, because I saw how strong some of the handicaps were, I have decided to revamp the system: 13-15th can no longer be used for handicaps, like most of last year until the chase. Also, handicaps have been decreased slightly (really your only losing 1 or 2 points though). And here are the new handicap lists:

+2 handicap: 16th-22nd

Jeff Gordon (Chaser last year)

Clint Bowyer (Chaser last year)

Bobby LaBonte

Marcos Ambrose

Greg Biffle (Chaser last year)

Denny Hamlin (Chaser last year)

David Ragan

+4 handicap: 23rd- 29th

Brad Keselowski

Brian Vickers

Jeff Burton (Chaser last year)

David Gilliland

David Reutimann

Jamie McMurray

Joey Logano

+6 handicap: 30th- 35th

Regan Smith

Bill Elliott

Robby Gordon

Casey Mears

Andy Lally

Dave Blaney

+8 handicap: Anyone below 35th

Ya, I'm thinking that this is for the best, because if I didn't do this, +3 handicaps for some chasers, or +5... that would be too overpowering. Anyways, these are the new handicap lists for the next 5 WEEKS! As I'm sure many people will take advantage of them this week, maybe 2 drivers even... we all know which 2 drivers I'm talking about

For my picks, I'm picking Jimmie Johnson, surprise surprise, I'm also picking one of those drivers I was talking about, Jeff Gordon with +2.
