Well, another race, another Harvick win, in what looked like and was anticipated to be a Johnson, Hamlin big finish, they ended up being cycled back a bit. So who picked our winner that has just gone 2 for 2? Well it wasn't Section... again... in fact it was once again Bored at Work, also a Harvick fan where his loyalty to his driven is starting to pay BIG dividens, but I'm sure that more people are going to follow suit this next race after back to back wins. Anyways, Denny and Jimmie still did pretty good, as well as Gordon, so lets see where people ended up:

PODIUM

1.) Bored at Work-    173 (92) (+3) (BY FAR had the best lineup this week, add a winner, and the best score ever for both one week and total in the competition so far, and you got a combination that is impecible... although the season is young...)

2.) FOREPLUS-          161 (79) (+1) (Has finishes of 2nd, 2nd, and 1st through 3 sessions, amazing for HER.)

3.) Mikeyfan-            157 (77) (+2)

NON-PODIUM 150 CLUB

4.) D2Moo-               155 (72) (-2)

5.) Roushfenwayguy- 154 (76) (+1)

Berlyn-                     154 (69) (-4)

125 CLUB

7.) Floridawhite-        149 (71) (-1)

8.) Sfrye-                  148 (76) (+3)

9.) Tigersman-          147 (69) (-3)

10.) ILL55INI-             146 (69) (-1)

11.) RAK-                   144 (72) (0)

12.) Spikesgator-        142 (69) (-2)

13.) River Rat-            141 (69) (-2)

14.) Chokin Colts-       139 (79) (+2)

15.) Section-               138 (71) (-1)

16.) Fsu1dogs-            130 (63) (-2)

17.) Fogducker-           125 (86) (+1) (Really wanted to make sure that he wasn't eliminated.)

100 CLUB

18.) Edwardsfan-          122 (62) (-1) (His favorite driver couldn't keep himself on the lead lap, has Edwardsfan chose him every week?)

19.) Bradman-             108 (72) (0) (Had a pretty good point total, but everyone did, so it wasn't enough to save himself.)

So this week, our defending champion, and first year's runner up, argueably the best player at this game, is already out during the second elimination... so we do know one thing, there will be a new champion this year compared to last year, but its still very sad to see someone go out because they forgot to make picks, but that's the way the cookie crumbles sometimes.

Winning Drivers Chosen:

Bored at Work- 3
Spikesgator-    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
