Sorry for getting this up so late guys, but David Ragan finally got his win, and how many chose him? One, sfrye, who has been picking Ragan all this season and finally got a win for it. But with some big drivers taken out (cough, Carl Edwards), lets see how everyone did.

PODIUM

Foreplus-            72 (Make sure to put in picks this week please, ill try giving you a reminded shortly before the race if I have time.)

Section-              71

Bored at Work-    68

NON- PODIUM 60 CLUB

Roushfenwayguy- 67

Fogducker-          67

Tigersman-         66

Spikesgator-        64

49 CLUB

River Rat-            58

Sfrye-                  57 (Well, at least you got the winning driver right???)

ILL55INI-             53

D2Moo-               49 (Good day by Gordon ruined by Edwards.)

DANGER ZONE

Edwardsfan-         32

Mikeyfan-            23 (Thank goodness for the save rule, because its looking like Mikeyfan may need to rely on that.)

So the leader of this first race is someone that didn't even make picks???? Thank goodness for the RFG autopicks (Pick 3 picks), but anyways, make sure you pick this week Foreplus, because on the third time my autopicks will disappear, gotta make sure that everyone stays part of the game, but I'm sure you just forgot so that's why this is pretty much a mulligan.

Roushfenwayguy- 10.3 (-1) (The owner of this league is sucking it up this year.)

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

This is a real crap-shoot this week, since there's no history here with the cup cars.  I'll go with a couple of drivers who've had success in the Nationwide series here.  Carl Edwards & Joey Logano.
