Sorry for getting this up late again... gotta stop making this a habit... anyways... Regan Smith won! So guesses are that nobody picked him, and a wise guess indeed. After this though, we at least had some that picked Carl Edwards... but lets see how everything turned out, especially for those Jeff Burton pickers...

1.) Chokin Colts-       174 (83) (+3) (With the runner up and +2 from Hamlin, that is good enough for first place this session.)

2.) Tigersman-          171 (76) (-1)

3.) Mikeyfan-            169 (76) (0)

4.) Spikesgator-        165 (70) (-3)

5.) Edwarsfan-           159 (74) (+2) (Good week with picking Edwards... again... but he's a great every-week pick.)

6.) Sfrye-                  155 (76) (+4)

7.) Section-               154 (74) (+2)

8.) Bored at Work-     142 (74) (+3)

9.) Foreplus-             137 (51) (-4)

10.) Berlyn-                134 (51) (-2)

11.) Floridawhite-        132 (74) (-1)

12.) D2Moo-               131 (45) (-7) (The only one to pick Bowyer, and it shows... and not in a good way...)

13.) Fogducker-           129 (76) (+2) (He maybe the best person at even numbered weeks, but he sucks during odd numered weeks...)

14.) Roushfenwayguy-  123 (65) (-2)

15.) ILL55INI-             107 (65) (+2) (Really? 3 people within 2 points of eachother to avoid elimination, now that's action!)

16.) River Rat-            106 (51) (-2) (Last week Gordon took the rat down, now Burton has the Rat packing... almost that is...)

17.) Fsu1dogs-            105 (55) (-1) (1 point... so close... but that's racing for ya, every position matters.)

So yes, by one microscopic point... two from ILL55INI, Fsu has the lowest score of the session in what maybe the close 3 way fight for survival ever... its too bad that I can't keep all 3 of you in, and Fsu does have the lowest of them all... so it is Fsu and the doghouse that leaves us this week.

Winning Drivers Chosen:

Bored at Work- 4

Spikesgator-    3

Fsu1dogs-        2

Fogducker-        2

The handicap lists are now revamped, make sure to keep attention to these new lists:

2 handicap: 16th-22nd

Denny Hamlin (Chaser last year)

Jeff Gordon (Chaser last year)

+8 handicap: Anyone below 35th

For me this week, he's the best avg. finisher here, and he is first in the standings, so why not Carl Edwards? I'm also going with Greg Biffle, because over the last five weeks, this guy has sneakily made his way from around 24th to 12th in the standings... and he's great here.

Spikesgator- Denny Hamlin (+2 handicap), Carl Edwards

Mikeyfan- Kyle Busch, Martin Truex Jr. (+2 handicap)

Tigersman- Kyle Busch, Jimmie Johnson

Chokin Colts- Carl Edwards, Greg Biffle
