Well, Jimmie Johnson fell short of being the superstar at Lowe's due to some issues, and apart from a pretty boring Lowe's, Kasey Kahne stood out as the driver that is making one heck of a comeback. We also had 5 people that chose Kahne in thier lineups, so we should get a few more winners. But lets see what everyone is really concerned about... that is who got eliminated:

1.) Fsu1dogs-           168 (77) (+1) (Reclaims the top dog poisition thanks to the mediocre performance of ILL55.)

2.) Beardawg-           164 (84) (+1)

3.) Tigersman-          161 (82) (+1)

4.) ILL55INI-             160 (67) (-3) (Falls out of the podium after a week with two perfect picks.)

5.) Roushfenwayguy- 154 (82) (+5) (The two most common picks did fine thanks to Kasey Kahne controlling part 2 over the Biff.)
 
6.) River Rat-            151 (78) (+3)

7.) D2Moo-               150 (72) (-2)

8.) Sfrye-                 146 (70) (-2)

9.) Berlyn-                144 (71) (-1)

10.) Edwardsfan-        142 (68) (-3)

11.) Bradman-           139 (82) (+1)

12.) Floridawhite-       133 (75) (-1)

13.) Fogducker-         125 (69) (+1)

14.) Tenacfan-          122 (68) (+1) (Oh how a winner can keep you away from elimination.)

15.) Section-             113 (57) (+1) (Joey Logano did not cut Section a break, and sends the person with the most winning drivers chosen packing.)

So Section loses that high standing in this game with his most winning drivers chosen thanks to Denny Hamlin, but he couldn't avoid the trouble of many other drivers, such as Jeff Gordon, which ultimately brought his downfall. We now have only 14 contestants, and we only have one more segment of running in this currect stature, so lets go over the rules for the next segment.

SEGMENT 2: Weeks 15-26(pre-chase): All players must have unique lineups every week in each session (REMEMBER that a session consists of two weeks, an odd week followed by an even week.) Here are some examples to clarify this:

EXAMPLE 1: Week 15: RFG chooses Jimmie Johnson and Carl Edwards

Week 16: RFG chooses Matt Kenseth and Carl Edwards = ILLEGAL PICKS

EXAMPLE 2: Week 16: RFG chooses Jimmie Johnson and Carl Edwards

Week 17: RFG chooses Jimmie Johnson and Greg Biffle

Week 18: RFG chooses Carl Edwards and Matt Kenseth = LEGAL PICKS

All in all, if its an EVEN numbered week, check your picks from the previous week, if it is an odd numbered week, then don't worry your head about a thing. Illegal picks will result in a -8 penalty, the maximum handicap, except subtracted. (Picking the exact same lineup will still result in -8, NOT -16.)

Winning Drivers List:

Tigersman-                 3 (Takes sole posession of the top spot with Section leaving this game.)

ILL55INI-                2
