Well, Tony Stewart won his first race of the season, what better time than the first race of the chase? Unfortunately, most people here didn't think of that theory, except for one, Tigersman... but Denny Hamlin tore up that winner pick, anyways, lets see how the standings are after the first race:

ILL55INI-            80 (+2 bonus) (Only one with two drivers in the top 10, it shows.)

Spikesgator-       69 (+2 bonus)

Foreplus-            69 (no bonus)

D2Moo-              68 (+1 bonus)

Fogucker-           68 (+3 bonus)

Tigersman-         65 (+0 bonus)

Sfrye-                 65 (+2 bonus)

Roushfenwayguy- 63 (+1 bonus)

River Rat-            56 (+0 bonus)

Bored at Work-     49 (+2 bonus) (Used every bit of his bonuses to try and stay in the hunt for staying alive.)

Segment One will last 2 races, weeks 27-28, TWO people will be eliminated from the game at this point. Any drivers are allowed both weeks. (Incase of tie, the tie will carry into segment two, lineups will not be allowed to be identical.)

Segment Two will last 3 races, weeks 29-31, TWO people will be eliminated from the game at the end of the segment. You must use AT LEAST 4 different drivers, and you can't keep the same driver for all three races, meaning you only have to switch one driver out each week. (Refer to segment one rules for ties.)

Segment Three will last 5 races, week 32-36, THE WINNER will be declared, and so 5 people are virtually being eliminated. Every week you must pick different drivers, meaning you must choose 10 UNIQUE DRIVERS. (Incase of tie, the tiebreaker will be whoever got the most points through this segment WITHOUT HANDICAPS OR BONUSES, if there still is a tie, then the person who has the highest scoring most recent week will be declared the winner. If there still is a tie, then whoever made the picks first each week will win, because someone is obviously cheating Tongue out.)

Bonuses will be given for each race.

And now for the bonuses:

Bored at Work, for picking 7 winning drivers will get a +3 bonus throughout the chase, congratulations!

Spikesgator, for picking 6 winning drivers, will get a +3 bonus for the first two segments in the chase!

Tigersman, for picking 5 winning drivers, will get a +3 bonus for the first segment in the chase!

Now for the newly revised handicap lists, these will last through the first five weeks of the chase.

For the bonus this week, try to predict how many caution flags there will be throughout the race, the exact answer gets +5, off by 1 gets you +3, off by 2-3 gets +2, and 4-5 gets +1.

My picks this race will be safe, or at least I hope so... Kurt Busch and Jimmie Johnson, with 8 caution flags.
