Oops sorry forgot to make the blog, well better late than never right?
So the last week until the chase is upon us? Could Denny Hamlin score another win? Could we have nobody pick him for a third time? Its all possible at Richmond, the last make it or break it point to stay in this game to at least say you made it into the chase. So lets check out the standings:
1.) Tenacfan- 82 (Starting to really build up momentum at the right time.)
2.) Floridawhite- 75
3.) Beardawg- 67
NON-PODIUM 50 CLUB
4.) River Rat- 58 (Well, the tie-breaker sure didn't dissapoint.)
Tigersman- 57 (ELIMINATED)
Roushfenwayguy (ghost picks)- 55
5.) Fsu1dogs- 45
6.) ILL55INI- 40
7.) Sfrye- 18 (WOW! Well good thing you have that safety net right?)
Bradman- 18 (Alright, so you don't have that safety net that Sfrye does...)
Winning Drivers List:
River Rat- 1
River Rat, Fsu and Bradman are eliminated from any bonus contention.
All others have a chance to receive +3 for the first two segments except Beardawg, who has clinched the +3 bonus throughout the chase.
Mark Martin, by average, would currently be 14th in the standing were he race all races, so 15th is now 16th, etc.
A side note that the handicap lists will not reset until the chase (week 27), so these will stick around an extra week... and more non-chase drivers could be added to the handicap lists.
+2 Handicap: 16th-22nd
Paul Menard (new to handicap list)
Juan Pablo Montoya
+4 Handicap: 23rd- 29th
Aric Almirola (+2 to +4 handicap)
+6 Handicap: 30th- 35th
(Sam Hornish Jr. will now reside a +6 handicap until A.J. goes down more in the standings)
David Stremme (new to handicap list)
+8 handicap: Anyone Below 35th
Kyle Busch, Denny Hamlin, this seems like a pretty easy pick week.
