Well, Kurt Busch actually won a road course, whodathunk? Certainly not me, but once again bored at work did, and he will get yet another win, trying to lock down that chase bonus like he would have last year, except he got eliminated... anyways, lets see how everyone did, and who is going home:


1.) ILL55INI-             160 (81) (+4) (Wrong order, but still good enough to hold off the Rat and slingshot up to first.)

2.) River Rat-            156 (83) (+6) (Choosing the 2nd and 3rd most common picks seemed to be the way to go this week.)

3.) Roushfenwayguy- 150 (67) (0) (JPM failed to live up to his road course name, Jeff Gordon lived up to his name though.)

125 CLUB

4.) Tigersman-         146 (64) (0)

5.) Mikeyfan-           145 (56) (-4) (So much for Lally being the next road racing king.)

6.) D2Moo-              142 (70) (+3) (Your instints weren't great, but not bad either.)

7.) Fogducker-         140 (52) (-5)

8.) Bored at Work-    137 (81) (+6) (Major redemption from last week thanks to being the only one with the winner.)

9.) Section-              135 (64) (+1)

10.) Edwardsfan-       131 (64) (+2)

11.) Sfrye-                130 (62) (0)

120 CLUB

12.) Spikesgator-       122 (65) (+1)

 Foreplus-                 122 (48) (-6) (Tony Stewart crash did not help much for many.)


14.) Berlyn-               102 (29) (-7) (Not even getting 30 points, that's rough enough of a week to bring anyone down to last.)

Well, after being the only one, along with Bradman and me, to see the finals in the first two seasons, berlyn has been taken out of the competition, we will sure miss having our lead girl here, as that privlige will go to Foreplus now, although she also picked Smoke... is there someone about smoke that I don't know about???

(Chokin Colts won both the other two sessions not shown, and is the only person with multiple session wins, sucks that he's eliminated.)

Considering that the new track of Kentucky is coming up next week, I'm saving the big guns, so I'll go with Kurt Busch... and I think Tony Stewart will see some redemption here.

this will either make or break me
Um.... I don't mean to burst your bubble or anything... but ummm... well your already broken... cause that last one was the second race in the segment and you had the lowest score, I do understand your not used to being low in the standings during the first two years thoughTongue out. But ya I can't accept these picks considering you are eliminated...
