Well, Kyle Busch wins again, and we got 2 people that picked him, Spikesgator and Bored at Work, of course these two have been raking up wins this whole season, so this shouldn't be too much of a surprise. But with Kurt Busch, Denny Hamlin and Carl Edwards doing bad, we will have to see how much people suffered this week:

PODIUM

D2Moo-               86 (Finally gets cut a break after playing the handicap game perfectly.)

Spikesgator-        84 (His trust in his favorite driver is really starting to pay off.)

Fogducker-          61 (The only one to pick the right RF duo.)

NON- PODIUM 50 CLUB

Bored at Work-    59 (Busch bros... well one of them was fantastic.)

Roushfenwayguy- 51 (Saved from disaster by another Keselowski stunner.)

40 CLUB

River Rat-           44

Sfrye-                 43

Foreplus-            42

30 CLUB

Edwardsfan-        34 (Bad day for Carl Edwards means no surpise Edwardsfan is here.)

ILL55INI-           34

Tigersman-         31 (Got hit hard this week, can he rebound at Bristol?)


This week was just painful to write, with the exception of two people, pretty much everyone did horrible thanks to those three drivers, in which seemed to be spread out between everyone, that's 8 people that picked at least one of those drivers I mentioned up top, meaning that's bad news, but hopefully Bristol looks better... even though Bristol has a much tougher reputation... this could be one low scoring session.

Bored at Work- 7
Spikesgator-    5

Tigersman-       4

D2Moo-           3

Fogducker-      3

Sfrye-              3

Edwardsfan-      3 

River Rat-         2

ILL55INI-          2

Foreplus-           1

I hate to jinx Carl by picking him.  But what the heck, I'll do it anyway,

Well the bad blood is never going away with Harvick and Rowdy, it started again on a Wednesday and I think will bleed over all weekend. Jimmie Johnson is going to be 6X, bank on it. Harvick, KHI and RCR will make sure of that in the chase also. That said Busch will have a bad week at Bristol for once.

Jimmie Johnson - David Reutimann - For Spikes.

Thanks RFG.
