RFG's Eliminator Game Race 8

Well, Matt Kenseth finally ended the drought at a track where RFR is usually dominant, so the win did make some sense, but lets see who picked him... two people this time, congratulations to FSU, and yes, you guessed it, once again Bored at Work picked the winner... and second place... needless to say he will be the leader this race and probably for this segment, but then again, it is Talladega, picking a winner here is like picking Trevor Bayne to win the 500, and if Bored does it again, people will probably be looking for which winning driver Bored chooses. So lets get to the standings and see how everyone else did:

PODIUM

1.) Bored at Work-     96 (I'm pretty sure Bored had this great of a season until the segment before the chase as well... right now he's lapping everyone.)

2.) Chokin Colts-       87 (Picked the best of those that didn't win.)

3.) D2Moo-               87

NON- PODIUM 75 CLUB

ILL55INI-            79

Edwardsfan-         75

65 CLUB

Section-              74

River Rat-           74

Spikesgator-        73

Fsu1dogs-           72 (Had the winner, but Jeff Gordon could not save him a good position.)

Mikeyfan-            70

Floridawhite-        69

Roushfenwayguy- 68 (Harvick could not go 3 for 3, and instead went down hard.)

Berlyn-                68

55 CLUB

Foreplus-             59 (Only had +2 handicap total this week, maybe she should stick to handicap drivers?)

Sfrye-                  59

Tigersman-          57 (The fall of Denny Hamlin is hurting a lot of people with picks this year.)

DANGER ZONE

Fogducker-          54

RAK-                   43 (This is not a great way to head to Talladega... Mark Martin's troubles really brought the score down.)

Winning Drivers Chosen:

Bored at Work- 4


Spikesgator-    2

Fsu1dogs-        2


Tigersman-      1

Berlyn-            1

D2Moo-           1

Bradman-        1

Edwardsfan-     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

For this week at Talladega, I gotta go with Kurt Busch... I'll also go with Brad Keselowski with his +4 handicap hoping these two will link up.

Roushfenwayguy- Kurt Busch, Brad Keselowski (+4 handicap)

Spikesgator- Kevin Harvick, Dale Earnhardt Jr.

Mikeyfan- Clint Bowyer (+2 handicap), Jeff Burton (+4 handicap)

Tigersman- Kevin Harvick, Dale Earnhardt Jr.

Berlyn-  Kevin Harvick, Dale Earnhardt Jr.

D2Moo- Kevin Harvick, Juan Pablo Montoya

Edwardsfan- Tony Stewart, Kurt Busch

Fsu1dogs- Kevin Harvick, Jamie McMurray (+4 handicap)

Sfrye- Carl Edwards, David Ragan (+2 handicap)

Section - Greg Biffle (+2 handicap), Joey Logano (+4 handicap)

RAK- Kyle Busch, Jeff Gordon

River Rat- Kevin Harvick, Brad Keselowski (+4 handicap)

Bored at Work- Dale Earnhardt Jr., Jeff Burton (+4 handicap)
