Well it looks like the nationwide choosers were correct in their assumptions, Kyle and Edwards did very well, and those that picked them are getting big rewards, this may not be the lowest scoring week like I imagined because of all the common drivers that did so well, but lets see for ourselves who did the best:

Foreplus-             149 (77) (Hangs on the lead that she only earned from her pick 3 picks last week.)

Spikesgator-        148 (84) (Sticking with JGR paid off this week, at least for Kyle Busch.)

Roushfenwayguy- 147 (80)

Section-              144 (73)

Bored at Work-    142 (72)

ILL55INI-            142 (89)

Tigersman-          141 (75)

Syfre-                  141 (84)

River Rat-            133 (75)

D2Moo-               128 (79)

Edwardsfan-         119 (86) (The Busch bros. were a great combo this week.)

Mikeyfan-            112 (89) (A terrific week to rebound from that really awful previous one... although it wasn't enough.)

Fogducker-          112 (45) (Given Regan Smith and Bobby LaBonte autopicks, who would have thought that it would result in a tie???)

So we are left in a tie, the rule for a tie is that both people need to make DIFFERENT PICKS (first come first serve), if one fails to make picks, that person will be eliminated automatically, and whoever has the lowest score of the two gets eliminated. The other side of the story though, is that Mikeyfan has the save should he lose, and he will stay in the game, but if he loses by too much, he could just get eliminated in the next segment, so it will be very interesting to see how this tie is broken next week at New Hampshire.
