Well, it took me awhile to get this up, but here it is, after week off, we now go to Richmond, fresh off a Jimmie Johnson win, and how many picked him? Fogducker and Chokin Colts. Although the win was by only .002 seconds, we know no distances in this game, just positions. So lets get to the standings and see how bad Talladega shaked things up... and who got eliminated:

1.) Chokin Colts-       178 (91) (+1) (Best of RHR is usually a pretty good thing, this time its a very good thing.)

2.) Bored at Work-     172 (76) (-1) (Not quite time to go to Vegas, but maybe after Richmond.)

3.) Section-               155 (81) (+3) (Uses the handicaps just right to get... 81 points... what is up with 81!?)

Floridawhite-              155 (86) (+8) (Biggest mover, and with two top 5 picks at Dega is quite impressive.)

5.) Spikesgator-        154 (81) (+3)

Mikeyfan-                 151 (81) (+5) (Mikeyfan played the handicap game right, at least with Clint Bowyer.)

7.) Berlyn-                149 (81) (+5) (Harvick Jr. was a pretty popular lineup huh?)

ILL55INI-                 149 (70) (-3)

9.) Fogducker-          144 (90) (+8) (Every time Fogducker is in trouble, he comes back with an amazing second week.)

10.) D2Moo-              143 (56) (-8) (JPM made D2Moo fall down a big ladder.)

11.) Fsu1dogs-          142 (70) (-2)

12.) Tigersman-         138 (81) (+4)

13.) Foreplus-             135 (76) (+2)

14.) River Rat-            132 (58) (-8)

15.) Edwardsfan-          131 (56) (-10) (Well, at least neither of them crashed.)

16.) Roushfenwayguy- 113 (45) (-4) (Its a sad day when your driver crashes, its even worse when your other driver crashes him.)

17.) Sfrye-                  108 (49) (-3) (Ragan completely ruins Edwards good run)

18.) RAK-                    95 (52)  (0) (Well, Kyle Busch put the dagger into RAK, not the first dagger he's used on someone.)

Well, looks like RAK is the one leaving us this week, where a lot of things went right and wrong in Talladega, it proves that the first week had a lot of weight on it, too much for RAK to overcome. As for the rest of the standings, its surprising to see Bored at Work not on top with 172, what's more surprising is that 17 points seperates 2nd from 3rd, and that same 17 points seperates 3rd from 12th... needless to say Bored and Chokin dominated this session with authority, and the question is, can Chokin carry this momentum? Because we all know that Bored at Work can.
