Well, another win for Tony, and another HUH? for Jimmie Johnson, the chase sure has been unpredictable so far, to go along with only 3 cautions, which everyone overguessed on. Anyways, lets see which one of you guys is eliminated, because I know I actually am, for the first time since this game began Cry.


1.) Fogducker-         139 (71) (no bonus) (+3)

2.) D2Moo-              137 (69) (+2 bonus) (+2)

3.) ILL55INI-            133 (53) (+1 bonus) (-2)


4.) Bored at Work-    131 (82) (+2 bonus) (+6) (One of the biggest comebacks this season, and at the best time.)

5.) Foreplus-            129 (60) (no bonus) (-3)

Sfrye-                      129 (64) (no bonus) (+2)

7.) River Rat-           125 (69) (no bonus) (+1)


8.) Roushfenwayguy- 114 (51) (+1 bonus) (0) (Wait, I'm not eliminated? Wow what a close battle!)


9.) Spikesgator-        113 (45) (+1 bonus) (-7) (His faith on JGR finally got the best of him.)

10.) Tigersman-        112 (47) (no bonus) (-4) (Should have picked Tony Stewart again.)

Well, if that doesn't show you the power of these bonus points, I don't know what will, 3 points was all Tigersman needed to move from last to safe, and only 2 for Spikes, hopefully you guys think twice now about your bonuses, as I sure am glad I guess 8, because I almost went with 11.

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! ELIMINATED

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

2 Handicap: 16th-22nd

Mark Martin

Martin Truex Jr.

Juan Pablo Montoya

David Ragan

Marcos Ambrose 

Kasey Kahne

Joey Logano

David Gilliland

Casey Mears

Dave Blaney

Tony Raines

+8 handicap: Anyone Below 35th

Bonus for this week, guess how many drivers finish ON THE LEAD LAP, due to this being a short track, this should be fun to see how many get lapped, so there is no better time for this bonus than now. Scoring is as followed:
+5 exact amount, +4 within one of exact amount, +3 within 2-3 of amount, +2 within 4-5 of amount, +1 within 6-10 of amount. Lot of lenience here, so most people should get at least one point.

For me, it's Carl Edwards and Jimmie Johnson, I'm also going with 15 drivers on the lead lap.

Roushfenwayguy- Carl Edwards, Jimmie Johnson (15 lead lap)



Foreplus- Matt Kenseth, Carl Edwards (25 lead lap)

D2Moo- Carl Edwards, Matt Kenseth (22 lead lap)

RFG's Chase Eliminator Week 3

Dadgum!  This was about where I was eliminated last year, too.  Enjoyed it.  Thanks for runnin' the game again, RFG.  I'll try again next year if you do it again.

I'm headin' down to the Dover race this weekend.
