Well, another day, another Jimmie Johnson win, and we had 5 people take advantage of that winner. The big crash also did not do too big of damage to our crew... well... those that chose Kyle, Tony or Carl will feel the pain, so lets see how consistent the group is this time:


1.) Sfrye-                 92 (Shares a tie with the highest possible scoring lineup.)

2.) Roushfenwayguy- 87

3.) Beardawg-           86

Floridawhite-             86


5.) D2Moo-               85

6.) Tigersman-          81

7.) Edwardsfan-         79

8.) Fsu1dogs-           77

ILL55INI-                  77 (A pretty good day for the top 2 RFR drivers right now.)

10.) Tenacfan-          75


11.) River Rat-          62

12.) Bradman-          54

13.) Berlyn-              50 (Berlyn strikes bad luck... again... this time with Kyle Busch.)

Fogducker-               50 (Follows Berlyn's bad luck train.)

Well, the distance from 1st to 10th is 17, while the distance from 1st to 13th is 42... that's a large gap, so it seems like the bottom four will likely fight for elimination, so Pocono is going to be a huge race for the premere of NASCAR on TNT for those in that danger zone.

Winning Drivers List:

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

Beardawg-               3 (Tigers and Bears with 3 wins, where are the lions?)

ILL55INI-                2

Tenacfan-                2

Roushfenwayguy-      2

Sfrye-                      2

Floridawhite-             2

Mikeyfan-                1

Berlyn-                    1

River Rat-                1

Fsu1dogs-                1

Bradman-                 1

D2Moo-                    1
Edwardsfan-              0 (Is now the only person in this game yet to pick a winner.)

+2 Handicap: 16th-22nd

Jamie McMurray

Juan Pablo Montoya

Jeff Burton (new to handicap list)

Kasey Kahne (+4 handicap to +2 handicap)

A.J. Allmendinger (+4 handicap to +2 handicap)

Marcos Ambrose (+4 handicap to +2 handicap)

Aric Almirola

+4 Handicap: 23rd- 29th

Jeff Gordon (Chaser last year... bargain hunters look here)

Mark Martin (+2 to +4 handicap)

Kurt Busch (Chaser last year)

Bobby LaBonte (+2 to +4 handicap)

Regan Smith (+2 to +4 handicap)

Casey Mears

David Ragan (+6 to +4 handicap)

+6 Handicap: 30th- 35th

David Gilliland

David Reutimann (the three Davids are still right next to eachother in the standings.)

Travis Kvapil

Dave Blaney (+4 to +6 handicap)

Landon Cassill

David Stremme (+8 to +6 handicap)

+8 handicap: Anyone Below 35th


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.)

So for this race, I'll stay away from Johnson and go with Smoke to bounce back at one of his best tracks. I'll also go with Denny Hamlin, as he is the leader in laps lead the last 5 years here... and 2 wins to boot with that... and he's doing good this season...

Roushfenwayguy- Denny Hamlin, Tony Stewart

D2Moo- Denny Hamlin, Greg Biffle


Beardawg- Denny Hamlin, Kasey Kahne


Fsu1dogs- Tony Stewart, Marcos Ambrose (+2 handicap)

River Rat- Kyle Busch, Jimmie Johnson


Sfrye- Denny Hamlin, Jeff Gordon (+4 handicap)

Tenacfan- Tony Stewart, Kyle Busch

Edwardsfan- Mark Martin (+4 handicap), Denny Hamlin



Bradman- Jeff Gordon (+4 handicap), Denny Hamlin

Common Picks:

Denny Hamlin-  6

Jeff Gordon-      2

Tony Stewart-    2

Kyle Busch-       2

Based on what I've seen in the test sessions and practices, I'm going to change my picks around to try and capitalize on the handicaps (hope it doesn't come back to bite me in the a$$!!)
