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:

PODIUM

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)

NON-PODIUM 125 CLUB

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)

75 CLUB

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.)

FIRST ELIMINATED

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

Juan Pablo Montoya

Mark Martin

+4 Handicap: 23rd- 29th

David Ragan 

Joey Logano

Brian Vickers

Regan Smith

David Reutimann

Jamie McMurray

Bobby LaBonte

+6 Handicap: 30th- 35th

David Gilliland

Casey Mears

Dave Blaney

Andy Lally

Robby Gordon

J.J. Yeley

+8 handicap: Anyone Below 35th


So Jimmie and Matt have run well recently, and they both are great here, makes my decision easy.

I'm tempted to take a couple of drivers in the handicap sections but I'll go with a couple of California boys - Jimmie Johnson and Kevin Harvick.
