Sorry for getting this up a bit late, after the week off, but we still have until Sunday night. Anyways, Johnson won, and he won the all-star race... I wonder where all the picks will go this week... anyways, lets see how the long awaited standings turned out from this last week:


1.) ILL55INI-            93 (Comes in first place this week with the best possible, 1-2 lineup.)

2.) Fsu1dogs-           91 (Is the number 1 dog after picking the past 2 Cup champions.)

3.) Beardawg-           80 (Climbs up to the 80 point mark thanks to that +3 bonus.)


4.) Tigersman-          79

5.) D2Moo-               78

6.) Sfrye-                  76

7.) Edwardsfan-         74

8.) Berlyn-                73

9.) River Rat-            73

10.) Roushfenwayguy- 72


11.)  Floridawhite-        58

12.) Bradman-             57

13.) Section-               56 (Guess what Jeff Gordon did? If you guess that he screwed you over AGAIN, you would be right.)

14.) Fog-                    56 (Allmendinger ,Gordon, its hard to find good sleepers... I can't believe Gordon is a sleeper now.)

15.) Tenacfan-            54 (Don't worry, at least you have Section for company with that Gordon pick...)

So two people picked the winner, and although many had Hamlin that wasn't too far off Johnson's mark, the distance from the first two down is great than the distance from 3rd to 10th... some close knit competition. And even on the low spectrum all 4 are within 3 points of eachother. We could have a very interesting Lowe's race... on a race where people crash... a lot... safe drivers maybe a good investment for those struggling to hang on right now.

Winning Drivers List:

Section-                  3 (He has more people coming closer to him, but he might want to focus on staying alive in this game.)

Tigersman-             2

ILL55INI-                2 (Joins Tigersman with one of the 3 to pick multiple winning drivers.)

Tenacfan-               1

Mikeyfan-                1

Floridawhite-            1

Beardawg-               1

Berlyn-                    1

River Rat-                1

Sfrye-                      1

Fsu1dogs-                1

I thought about just duplicating Tenacfans picks to guarantee I won't be eliminated, but decided against it.

Lets go with Matt Kenseth and Joey Logano
