RFG's Eliminator Game Race 15

Well this is a big week for this game at least... between the boring Pocono and Michigan, I figured that some excitement in this game would help out, so this is what's going to happen.

1.) People must switch out both their drivers used for each segment, not just one, thus, the same driver can't be used every week, and may make some strategy come into play. Example:

Race 15: Jimmie Johnson, Jeff Gordon

Race 16: Mark Martin, Jeff Gordon (will not be accepted)

Race 16: Mark Martin, Dale Earnhardt Jr. (will be accepted)

Race 17: Mark Martin, Dale Earnhardt Jr. (will be accepted since weeks 16 and 17 are in two different sessions.)

I'll explain anything if people don't get this.

2.) The save rule is now in effect, unlike last year, I will take the top three in average finish AT THE START OF each segment, and as long as they register picks for both weeks, they will be safe from elimination, in addition, after the save is used, only one will be eliminated the next segment instead of two, considering that we are kinda low on people this year.

That's about it, also I have to say that you guys have been doing fantastic making your picks in this year, very seldom have I had to go and get my random generator out, which I had to do constantly last year.

Anyways, about Pocono... well Hamlin didn't record a top 10, and that will hurt... well... almost nobody, because ONLY 2 PEOPLE DIDN'T PICK HAMLIN... and those two that did... picked Edwards... I sense a baaaaad week... hopefully this is the last time this happens, but we will have to see how well those people did, and who is eliminated this segment... also Gordon finally won, so who picked him? Just one, which is Fogducker, add that +2 handicap, and he made Fogducker continue his even week dominance, so lets see how everyone else did:

1.) Fogducker-          155 (80) (+7) (This week, even with someone in 19th, the winner was a pole-vault right into the lead.)

2.) Mikeyfan-            151 (71) (-1) (Looks like the Busch bros. were a great duo, its unfortunate that nobody picked both of them.)

ILL55INI-                 151 (72) (+1)

4.) Bored at Work-    148 (70) (+1)

5.) Roushfenwayguy- 146 (72) (+5) (Trust in favorite driver pays off, also the only one to pick Kurt.)

6.) Section-              135 (55) (-5)

7.) Berlyn-                132 (55) (-1)

8.) River Rat-            131 (55) (-1)

9.) Tigserman-          130 (68) (+6)

10.) Spikesgator-        124 (45) (-7)

11.) Sfrye-                  123 (48) (-3)

12.) Foreplus-             118 (53) (+2)

13.) Edwardsfan-         108 (36) (-2) (This is what happens when Carl Edwards has a bad race.)

14.) D2Moo-               107 (36) (-1)

15.) Floridawhite-         103 (31) (-4) (Well he was due for a bad week, but this was not a good week for it to happen for Florida at least.)

So eliminated was Floridawhite, one of the most consistent people last year, he' couldn't keep up that consistency this year, and now bites the dust...

Bored at Work- 4

Spikesgator-    3

D2Moo-           3

There is only one save, once its used by any person, nobody can get the save again, basically and one and done rule.

About the saves.  Do you only get one save?  Or are you always safe when you are in the top 3?
