Alright, now we have a week off, try to remember to make your picks please, I will bump up this thing from time to time to keep it on the front page. As for this race, Kurt Busch finally got a long waiting win, as he did an absolutely fantastic job. Nice job Floridawhite and Chicagolaw for picking the winner. (And lucky sford for getting him as an autopick) Anyway, my bad Fantasy week had a rebound, with Matt, Carl, and Kurt all doing good this week, things are looking up again. Anyway, here are the standings:
1.) Berlyn- 345
2.) Fsu1dogs- 333
3.) Chicagolaw- 330
4.) Plaid- 298
5.) Sford + Floridawhite- 296
7.) Tabasco- 297
8.) Bearthumb- 281 (Being Replaced)
9.) Tigersman- 274
10.) M56nascar + Uscfannv- 271
12.) Bradman- 260
13.) Justgreat- 245 (Being Replaced)
14.) Section- 240
15.) Mikeyfan- 226
16.) Bondkbond- 214
17.) RoushFenwayGuy- 204
18.) Tenacfan- 194
19.) Edwardsfan- 178
20.) Sfrye- 146 (Eliminated)
21.) Superjags- 143 (Replacing Bearthumb)
22.) Spikesgator- 109 (Replacing Justgreat)
So after this week, Sfrye is eliminated, due to bad autopicks, with Edwardsfan being close to eliminated from 8th place, a great week for everyone except him and Sfrye, as nobody had a person who finished below 18th. (Kyle Busch finsihing 18th), and this just goes to show that one decent pick can be blown away by one bad pick.
But this means that only 1 autopicker is left, Sford, since he got Kurt as an autopick he stays unless someone else wants to join the game then he will be replaced.
Also congratulations to Berlyn, her 2nd here, and 3rd at Las Vegas got her the 10 bonus points, barely over Fsu with a winner and an 8th, and also Chicago with a winner and a guy around 10th I think.
Also remember, the bonus for who finishes 30th or below will be accounted for after Bristol, of them being in the top 20, I will check to see who has what picks if any end in this area, here is who is close to the mark, being unofficial standings of course : (John Andretti is in 30th at 336). David Ragan- 22nd- 405 (+69) Dale Earnhardt Jr.- 24th- 397- (+61) Ryan Newman- 32st - 324 (-12) So pretty much Ryan Newman is the only way you can get this award. Ryan Newman will have to catch up to Robby Gordon, 18 points ahead of him, in order to get back up above 30th. Points will be added, if this comes in play, during week 6 at Martinsville.
And the handicap list WILL be reset starting after Bristol, meaning that many good drivers may go on the handicap list, and I only update it once every 5 weeks, so watch Dale Earnhardt Jr., Mark Martin, and Ryan Newman, among other good names, to be on the handicap list.
Here is the list for picks, I will go with my favorite driver, Kurt Busch, to strike twice, winning at pretty much his best track.
1.) Berlyn- ??? (??? indicates Private posted pick) (+10 on any pick)
2.) Fsu1dogs- Carl Edwards
3.) Chicagolaw- Jimmie Johnson (random autopick)
4.) Plaid- Ryan Newman
5.) Sford- Clint Bowyer (random autopick)
6.) Floridawhite- Jimmie Johnson
7.) Tabasco- Denny Hamlin
8.) Tigersman- Tony Stewart
9.) M56nascar- Kevin Harvick
10.) Uscfannv- Jimmie Johnson
11.) Bradman- Carl Edwards
12.) Section- Kevin Harvick
13.) Mikeyfan- Jeff Gordon
14.) Bondkbond- Jeff Gordon (RFG autopick)
15.) RoushFenwayGuy- Kurt Busch
16.) Tenacfan- Carl Edwards

Common drivers (This list will tell people common drivers and how many people chose them, it might help you decide to try another driver to break out of the pack, or pick the same to avoid losing the pack. Also keep in mind that ??? votes will not be shown as selecting a common driver.)
Carl Edwards- 5 selections
Kevin Harvick- 2 selections
Jeff Gordon- 2 selections (1 RFG pick)
Jimmie Johnson- 3 selections (1 random)
Man, and Dale Earnhardt Jr., Jimmie Johnson, and Clint Bowyer for autopicks, at Bristol, lucky randoms this week I guess, plaid, bondkbond, and chicago can change if they get their real choice in by the start of the race.
