OK, so last week until the chase, and Jeff Gordon got another win, leaving 3 people to follow his historic 85th win, Tigersman, D2Moo and Fogducker. It should be obvious that Tigers has the highest score, but lets find out, like River Rat said, this is probably a huge week, to rebound from that awful last session:

PODIUM

D2Moo-               93 (Two 90's, wow what a good week, thank the +3 bonus for winning the session for another first place.)

Tigersman-          91 (Both Hendrick drivers, give him reservations for... second place?)

Fogducker-          86

NON PODIUM 80 CLUB

Sfrye-                 85 (Possibly the two biggest chase threats made a great team here.)

Roushfenwayguy- 84 (Once again gets a nice boost from that Keselowski handicap, that will dissolve come chase time.)

Bored at Work-    84

ILL55INI-            83

70 CLUB

Foreplus-            78

River Rat-           78

DANGER ZONE

Spikesgator-       63 (Whoops, Kyle Busch turned out to be a bad pick.)

Wow, 78 as the second lowest score, and five people within 3 points of eachother, in the 80s, yes this was a very good week, so it should go to say that nobody is safe, and Spikesgator, whom had a mediocre week, could end up losing with a 63, that isn't that bad of a score, but Richmond is  known for having stuff happen, and the short break could make drivers tired, so we will have to see what happens.

Bored at Work- 7 (Unless he is eliminated, he has secured the +3 bonus throughout the chase.)
(This group has secured a bonus through the chase unless they get eliminated or D2Moo or Fogducker pick the winning driver.)

Spikesgator-    5

Tigersman-       5

(Eliminated from bonus hunt.)

D2Moo-           4

Fogducker-      4
Sfrye-              3 
River Rat-         2

ILL55INI-          2

Foreplus-           1

Roushfenwayguy- 1

2 Handicap: 16th-22nd

David Ragan

A.J. Allmendinger

Mark Martin

Joey Logano

Juan Pablo Montoya

Brad Keselowski

Marcos Ambrose

+4 Handicap: 23rd- 29th

Martin Truex Jr.

David Reutimann

Regan Smith

Jeff Burton (Chaser last year)

Brian Vickers

Jamie McMurray

Bobby LaBonte

+6 Handicap: 30th- 35th

David Gilliland

Dave Blaney

Casey Mears

Andy Lally

Robby Gordon

Tony Raines

+8 handicap: Anyone Below 35th

ALSO one more thing, should there be a tie for last place, then nobody will be eliminated, and there will be no tiebreaker, also no segment winning bonus will carry on into the chase.

Richmond, Kyle Busch obviously, also I was going to pick Jeff Gordon, and after last race, I have even more reason to pick him.

Roushfenwayguy- Kyle Busch, Jeff Gordon

Spikesgator- Denny Hamlin, Kevin Harvick

Tigersman- Denny Hamlin, Kyle Busch

Foreplus- Denny Hamlin, Marcos Ambrose (+2 handicap)

D2Moo- Jimmie Johnson, Denny Hamlin

Sfrye-  Kyle Busch, Denny Hamlin

River Rat- Denny Hamlin, Kyle Busch

Bored at Work- Jeff Gordon, Denny Hamlin

Fogducker- Kyle Busch, Jimmie Johnson

ILL55INI- Kevin Harvick, Jeff Gordon

Common Drivers:

Denny Hamlin-      7

Kyle Busch-           5

Jeff Gordon-          3

Kevin Harvick-       2

Jimmie Johnson-    2

Jimmie was looking good until he got caught up in a Kurt and Juan scuffle.  Grumblepucky!

That's racing though.

Telling everyone right now.  You better go with Truex Jr. 

He has been running well lately, a 2nd and 14th.  plus his plus 4 handicapp will carry him.  And if things go right and he wins this weekend he could find himself in the chase as the second wild card. 

So you better listen or I'll have to say Told you so!  Laughing
Honestly I'd feel safer with Allmendinger or Ambrose. Surprised

I cant make up points if I take Rowdy since everyone else is, Hamlin will get the job done and Harvick is due... Spikes.
Actually, more people are picking Hamlin than are Kyle, however, you picked Kyle Busch last race, so you can't pick him again anyways.
