Another race, another Keselowski win, and a lot of sobbing owners of Kyle Busch that will all be pulled down together. And although Keselowski 2-peated, nobody picked him at all. I'm sure that will change in future Bristol races, where Keselowski and Kyle Busch will be a dominant combination. Anyways, lets see how the standings went:


1.) Foreplus-           140 (80) (The only person to pick two drivers in the top 10 this week... pretty sad...)

2.) Bradman-           139 (68) (Plays the handicap game very wisely.)

3.) Tenacfan-           137 (66) (Well, his odd picks helped him avoid trouble.)

Sfrye-                     137 (57)


5.) D2Moo-              134 (55)

6.) ILL55INI-            132 (43)

7.) Tigersman-         129 (47)

8.) Edwardsfan-         126 (39)

100 CLUB

9.) River Rat-           122 (55)

10.) Section-              121 (45) (+3 bonus)

11.) Fsu1dogs-           112 (46)

12.) Roushfenwayguy- 111 (46)

13.) Fog-                   110 (45)

14.) Flordiawhite-        106 (39) (+3 bonus)


15.) Beardawg-            91 (35)

16.) JOEpesci-             83 (41) (Needs to make picks next soon or these random picks will eventually bring the death of him.)

17.) Hoosierguy-          79 (46) (Barely avoids elimination after Selection Sunday.)

SAFE (barely)

18.) Berlyn-                 72 (19) (Following the Mikeyfan bandwagon is NEVER a good idea.)


19.) Mikeyfan-             71 (19) (+2 bonus) (Well ummm... it couldn't have gone much worse than this...)

Well after a great first two weeks, Mikeyfan suddenly fell down, and why is that? Well its actually because he let go in his faith of MWR drivers, who ALL finished in the top 5, unfortunately Mikeyfan found out his lesson the hard way, as his bonus from last session was not enough to save him, and he will be the first one to go.

Remember that now all the score reset, so everyone has a fresh zero points except for the segment winner, Foreplus, which will get a 3 point bonus.

Also remember that the handicap lists will be REVAMPED after Fontana, so take advantage of handicaps you still want to use now.

2 Handicap: 16th-22nd

Greg Biffle

Paul Menard

Martin Truex Jr.

Marcos Ambrose

Jeff Burton

I think MikeyFan should come back over a non player, they guy has heart.
Sorry but that is just how the game goes, like I said I'm giving that guy one last chance, and if not then he will get zeros and will go. And also remember you got first the first year I ran this, second the next year, then you were eliminated either this week or by week 7 last year, this is the unpredictability of the Eliminator, where even I could go in the early weeks. This eliminator league shows no mercy though... except for the safety rule...

My apologies Sfrye, I always forget someone every now and then, dunno how I miss everyone since I go right down the row, but you have been updated in a tie for third.

Just one more question, how can an active participant be eliminated over a non-player?

Like many of the other games here, I give a three strike rule, sometimes people go on vacations, have internet issues, etc. as this HAS happened before. The random autopicks are usually awful, and they were, if both you and Berlyn's picks were a little luckier, he would have been gone... even though those picks were Carl Edwards and Kyle Busch. If the player, JOE, does not return this week however, he will receive a big 0 for this week, securing that he will go next session.
