Well, another first time winner, but unlike the others, this one was a lot more predictable, 5 people got Ambrose, including the only person that had yet to pick a winning driver... I wonder who that could be... anyways, let's see how good or bad people did with all the action and takedowns late in the race:

PODIUM

1.) Spikesgator-        163 (83) (0) (Back to back great weeks for Spikes puts him in first.)

2.) Edwardsfan-         160 (87) (+3) (The full time picks that are pretty much only good at road races worked out yet again.)

3.) Roushfenwayguy- 156 (92) (+7) (Couldn't have picked a much better lineup than Kyle Ambrose.)

125 CLUB

4.) Bored at Work-    149 (86) (+7)

Fogducker-              149 (80) (+3)

6.) Foreplus-            145 (70) (-3)

7.) River Rat-           136 (66) (-1)

8.) ILL55INI-            135 (55) (-5)

110 CLUB


9.) Sfrye-                124 (55) (-2) (And this is with the winner.)

10.) D2Moo-              118 (41) (-8) (Falls from the podium to the bottom three, ouch.)

11.) Tigersman-         117 (49) (-2)

ELIMINATED

12.) Section-              105 (51) (0) (JPM last week, Kurt Busch this week, very hard to recover from two crashers...)

So Section is the one that leaves us this session after two very hard weeks for him, and now that leaves just 11 left, with only two segments left until the chase, who will make it there, and who will fall in the dust?

Thought about taking Denny, but the 11 team will be playing with a new TRD engine package, the first time in 17 of 20 years JGR will not be running their own Engines, Rowdy will have a JGR Cronquist package. No brainer for me.

Kyle "Rowdy" Busch

Matt Kenseth


Spikes.   Cool
