Well, Talladega took out a lot of good drivers, 7 of the twelve chase drivers finished on or below 25th... luckily there was a safety picks, but even a lot of safeties found trouble. We also had two other problems, first off Bored at Work picked a safety driver that was not on a handicap list, therefore he doesn't get a safety... not like Jeff Gordon did much anyways. Second Fogducker failed to make picks, on any game, and so he got random autopicks which don't have handicaps. He definetely suffered, as he got Regan Smith and JJ Yeley, even on a week like this, there may not be coming back from that... so lets see how awful everyone did.

Roushfenwayguy (GHOST PICKS)- 59

1.) Sfrye-                                   59

Bored at Work-                           59

3.) Foreplus-                              58 (Both her drivers were between 15th and 20th, unfortunately, that means no Jeff Burton safety.)

4.) ILL55INI-                             42

5.) D2Moo-                                39

6.) Fogducker-                           16 (Please make sure to make picks, this is what can happen if you don't.)

So ya, nobody higher than 60 points... that's Talladega for you... its still fairly close though, and there are 4 weeks to make up the gap if you have one, so lets go onto Martinsville.

2 Handicap: 16th-22nd

Greg Biffle (replaces Kasey Kahne)

David Ragan

Marcos Ambrose 

Juan Pablo Montoya

Mark Martin

Paul Menard (from +4 to +2)

Joey Logano  

+4 Handicap: 23rd- 29th

Martin Truex Jr. (from +2 to +4)

Jeff Burton

Brian Vickers

Regan Smith

Jamie McMurray

David Reutimann

Bobby LaBonte

+6 Handicap: 30th- 35th

David Gilliland

Casey Mears

Dave Blaney

Andy Lally

Robby Gordon

J.J. Yeley (replaces Tony Raines)

+8 handicap: Anyone Below 35th

The bouns for this week, is to guess how many laps down the 30th place driver will be, you do not need to guess who finishes 30th, just how many laps he is down. in 2010, it was 45 laps, and in 2009, it was only four, so there definetely is some variability here. +5 for the exact amount, +3 for 1-2 off, +2 for 3-5 off, +0 for anything more off than that.

Jimmie Johnson, going with him now, and my other driver... best go with Gordon now.

Roushfenwayguy (GHOST PICKS)- Jimmie Johnson, Jeff Gordon (bonus= 5 laps) Kevin Harvick, Brad Keselowski

Sfrye- Denny Hamlin, Kevin Harvick (bonus= 8 laps)  Trevor Bayne, Dale Earnhardt Jr.                                 

Bored at Work-  Jimmie Johnson, Dale Earnhardt Jr. David Ragan, Trevor Bayne                   

Foreplus- Kurt Busch, Jeff Burton (+4 handicap) (bonus= 3 laps)   Matt Kenseth, Greg Biffle                   

ILL55INI-   Kurt Busch, Denny Hamlin (10 laps down) Kevin Harvick, Dale Earnhardt Jr.

3 Laps down

Great Job RFG. I guess I should have used my safety as a real driver, since I thought longer and harder about which one to use.

Wow.  Imagine if someone took Bowyer and Burton.  Wouldn't have been too far out on a limb.  Next time I'll read the rules more carefully..Innocent  I'll submit some picks later.
