RFG's Chase Eliminator Week 9

The chase is winding down, and only two contestants really remain, Edwards and Stewart, and while there are only two left in that competition, we got more than that... at least I think, considering all the Edwards and Kenseth picks that both scored in the top 5. Also, not a single person has used Smoke... throughout the whole final segment... so how many will end up picking him during either Homestead or Pheonix? Anyways, lets see the scores everyone put up.:

Roushfenwayguy (ghost picks)- 232 (86)

Bored at Work-                       229 (88) (+2 bonus)

Sfrye-                                    227 (87) (+2 bonus)

D2Moo-                                 207 (83 (+4 bonus)

Foreplus-                               199 (67) (Denny Hamlin made Foreplus start to fade from the picture, with 4 total driver though, this game can be easily made up.)

ILL55INI-                              198 (86)

So apart from Foreplus, there was a maximum of five points seperating each person in points for this week, but with many drivers that people can't use anymore, picks may start to get more different, and then we may see some differences in points, either that or everyone is getting rid of all the same drivers at the same times... also Foreplus had 2 points added to her score, I forgot to add +2 for her Biffle pick on the first week.

Roushfenwayguy (GHOST PICKS)- 146 (87)

Bored at Work- 141 (82)

Sfrye-              140 (81)

Foreplus-         132 (72)

D2Moo-            124 (85)

ILL55INI-         112 (70)

So the top 2 are extremely close, foreplus and D2Moo still are in the hunt, as 17 points can be made up pretty easily in 3 races, and ILL55... well he's gotta start making some good picks...

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

Just a heads up, since last week is the last week, there will be NO BONUS, because I want the last race to be fair...ish, anyways, its time to recycle ideas for this week, lead changes, which actually do not happen too much at Pheonix. +5 for the exact amount, +3 for 1-2 off, +1 for 3-5 off, and nothing for anything else.

For me this week, Tony Stewart sucks at Homestead, so I might as well go with him here. Also, its time to use Kurt Busch, since I can't use Edwards, Johnson or Gordon...

Roushfenwayguy (GHOST PICKS)- Tony Stewart, Kurt Busch (bonus= 10 laps) Carl Edwards Jimmie Johnson, Jeff Gordon  Kevin Harvick, Brad Keselowski

Sfrye- Jimmie Johnson, Tony Stewart (19 laps)  Greg Biffle Kevin Harvick   Trevor Bayne,                                  

Bored at Work- Tony Stewart, Brad Keselowski (18 laps) Carl Edwards,  Jimmie Johnson,  David Ragan, Trevor Bayne                   

Foreplus- Tony Stewart, Jaime McMurray (+4 handicap) (16 laps)  Carl Edwards Kurt Busch, Jeff Burton , Greg Biffle                   

ILL55INI- Tony Stewart, Jimmie Johnson (17 laps) Carl Edwards,    Kurt Busch,  Kevin Harvick,

D2Moo- Tony Stewart, Brad Keselowski (22 laps) Jeff Gordon, Jimmie Johnson,    Kevin Harvick,

Keep in mind that these statistics do not include myself, since I am just making ghost picks

Only Foreplus may use Dale Earnhardt Jr.

Nobody may use Matt Kenseth

Only Bored at Work can use Denny Hamlin
