RFG's Eliminator 4.0 week 9

Add Denny Hamlin to that list of hot drivers, he got another win! And who took advantage? Only one person known as Section picked the winner this week, but don't fret the many that picked Jimmie and Greg, as they both got top 5s... again... and Jeff Gordon owners will feel some pain. Anyways, lets get right down to the standings and see who is eliminated:

PODIUM

1.) ILL55INI-             172 (79) (With the week he had last week, a 79 is more than enough to hold off charing competition.)

2.) Tigersman-          168 (81) (How do you follow up a 86 point performance, with another 80+ point race.)

Floridawhite-             168 (83)

NON-PODIUM 150 CLUB

4.) Fog-                    160 (82)

Bradman-                  160 (77)

6.) Roushfenwayguy-  157 (81) (The two most popular non handicap drivers this week both get in the top 5.)

D2Moo-                    157 (81) (The scary part is that we both had different lineups both weeks.)

8.) Foreplus-             156 (75)

130 CLUB

9.) Edwardsfan-          147 (71)

10.) Berlyn-               141 (58) (There's the bad luck again!)

11.) River Rat-            139 (65)

12.) Fsu1dogs-           138 (53) (Well your favorite driver isn't what he used to be.. but he was doing good before engine failure.)

13.) Beardawg-           135 (69) (Well, you only lost 2 points from the change, not bad.)

14.) Section-              133 (76) (Well... at least you got the winner, which will help greatly come chase time... if you make it...)

BASEMENT DWELLERS

15.) Sfrye-                  129 (68) (What a difference a segment can make in how you finish.)

16.) Tenacfan-            126 (70)

ELIMINATED

17.) Hoosierguy-           82 (32) (You picked the two worst drivers that were picked this week... add that to last week... and it was nice having you in this game, but the handicap game is risky business...)

So Hoosierguy, with the lowest score both weeks, and sorry to say but a pretty humiliated score leaves us this segment. This leaves only Beardawg as the sole survivor of newcomers to the game this year. 16 are still left, and there is a long season to go before we get to the end. Also I think Section probably scored the lowest ever in the overall standings after picking a winning driver, although he does know when to pick  Hamlin... just a note if people want to watch Section's picks... Also congratulations to ILL55INI, who broke his streak of two 6th place segment finishes with a win. ILL55INI knows the power of the save from last year... or the year before that... and he is setting himself up nicely for it.

Winning Drivers List:

Section-                  2 (Congratulations on being the first to pick Denny Hamlin during both of his wins!)

Tigersman-             1

RFG's Eliminator 4.0 week 8

Greg Biffle won! And now has a case for being a true championship contender that many didn't see coming, and only after 7 weeks. Looks like we had 2 hopefuls on the 3rd most common RFR driver, Tigersman and ILL55INI that will get a winning driver, as there are a lot of people with only 1 right now, but nobody with 2, but lets see how everyone else did:


ILL55INI-            93 (Surprising, even with the 1-2 punch, he didn't get the best possible lineup, dang Jeff Gordon and his +4.)

Tigersman-         87 (One heck of a RFR lineup, but can't compare to a 1-2 punch.)

Fsu1dogs-           85

Floridawhite-        85 (Following the doghouse has its benefits every now and then.)

Berlyn-                83

Bradman-            83 (Ummm... so Berlyn and Bradman picked the same drivers... and they both scored over 80 points... maybe two wrongs does make a right...)

Foreplus-             81

Fog-                   78

Roushfenwayguy- 76

Edwardsfan-         76

D2Moo-               76

River Rat-            74

Beardawg-           66 (Well, the Bayne pick did get you 24, but that's small compared to the other scores this week.)

Sfrye-                 61 (Thanks to that plus 3 bonus, you stayed in the 60s, there was no smoke in Texas.)

Section-              57 (Berlyn didn't even need to pick Jeff Burton this time, maybe she gave her luck to you.)

Tenacfan-           56 (Well, picking the same driver is going to have its ups and downs.)

Hoosierguy-        55 (45 points out of Mark Martin!... and then comes KEselowski...)


Winning Drivers List:

Tigersman-             1

ILL55INI-                1

Tenacfan-               1

Mikeyfan-                1

Section-                  1

RFG's Eliminator 4.0 week 6

Well, this is a big week, because as of now, the handicaps are revamped. That means all new handicaps for Martinsville. These handicaps will stay for the next 5 weeks... and there is one driver that will be impossible to resist at Martinsville considering his handicap... go and look at the list to find out. Also JOEpesci missed picks for the 3rd straight week, so he will start receiving zeroes. In other words, you guys can go crazy with your picks because he will be eliminated this segment unless he makes a miracle out of Martinsville (which implies making picks). Here are the standings to see who will get first, because that +3 bonus is still worth fighting for... oh and one more thing, Tenacfan is the only one to pick the winner, as his plan to pick Smoke virtually every race is paying off big time.

PODIUM

1.) Tenacfan-            87 (Tenacfan is doing spooky good, possibly the biggest surprise this season so far.)

2.) Fog-                    86 (A real bounce-back week after being the only one to pick Kyle, very close to that lead.)

3.) Sfrye-                  80 (Keeps on making good picks consistently, just starting where Sfrye finished off last season.)

PACK (70 CLUB)

4.) Section-               77

5.) River Rat-            76

Hoosierguy-              76

7.) Tigersman-          75

D2Moo-                    75

Fsu1dogs-                75

10.) Foreplus-           74 (+3 bonus)

ILL55INI-                 74

60 CLUB

12.) Roushfenwayguy- 68

Beardawg-                  68

14.) Floridawhite-        66

15.) Edwardsfan-         65

BASEMENT

16.) Bradman-            57

17.) Berlyn-                45 (The bad weeks just keep on coming for Berlyn)

INACTIVE

18.) JOEpesci-             0


So without further ado, here are the new handicap lists for the next five races:

+2 Handicap: 16th-22nd

Mark Martin

Juan Pablo Montoya

Regan Smith

Bobby LaBonte

Aric Almirola

RFG's Eliminator 4.0 week 5

Another race, another Keselowski win, and a lot of sobbing owners of Kyle Busch that will all be pulled down together. And although Keselowski 2-peated, nobody picked him at all. I'm sure that will change in future Bristol races, where Keselowski and Kyle Busch will be a dominant combination. Anyways, lets see how the standings went:

PODIUM

1.) Foreplus-           140 (80) (The only person to pick two drivers in the top 10 this week... pretty sad...)

2.) Bradman-           139 (68) (Plays the handicap game very wisely.)

3.) Tenacfan-           137 (66) (Well, his odd picks helped him avoid trouble.)

Sfrye-                     137 (57)

NON-PODIUM 125 CLUB

5.) D2Moo-              134 (55)

6.) ILL55INI-            132 (43)

7.) Tigersman-         129 (47)

8.) Edwardsfan-         126 (39)

100 CLUB

9.) River Rat-           122 (55)

10.) Section-              121 (45) (+3 bonus)

11.) Fsu1dogs-           112 (46)

12.) Roushfenwayguy- 111 (46)

13.) Fog-                   110 (45)

14.) Flordiawhite-        106 (39) (+3 bonus)

75 CLUB

15.) Beardawg-            91 (35)

16.) JOEpesci-             83 (41) (Needs to make picks next soon or these random picks will eventually bring the death of him.)

17.) Hoosierguy-          79 (46) (Barely avoids elimination after Selection Sunday.)

SAFE (barely)

18.) Berlyn-                 72 (19) (Following the Mikeyfan bandwagon is NEVER a good idea.)

FIRST ELIMINATED

19.) Mikeyfan-             71 (19) (+2 bonus) (Well ummm... it couldn't have gone much worse than this...)


Well after a great first two weeks, Mikeyfan suddenly fell down, and why is that? Well its actually because he let go in his faith of MWR drivers, who ALL finished in the top 5, unfortunately Mikeyfan found out his lesson the hard way, as his bonus from last session was not enough to save him, and he will be the first one to go.

Remember that now all the score reset, so everyone has a fresh zero points except for the segment winner, Foreplus, which will get a 3 point bonus.



Also remember that the handicap lists will be REVAMPED after Fontana, so take advantage of handicaps you still want to use now.

2 Handicap: 16th-22nd

Greg Biffle

Paul Menard

Martin Truex Jr.

Marcos Ambrose

Jeff Burton

Juan Pablo Montoya

Mark Martin

+4 Handicap: 23rd- 29th

David Ragan 

Joey Logano

Brian Vickers

Regan Smith

David Reutimann

Jamie McMurray

Bobby LaBonte

+6 Handicap: 30th- 35th

David Gilliland

Casey Mears

Dave Blaney

Andy Lally

Robby Gordon

J.J. Yeley

+8 handicap: Anyone Below 35th


So Jimmie and Matt have run well recently, and they both are great here, makes my decision easy.

RFG's Eliminator 4.0 week 4

PODIUM

1.) ILL55INI-           89 (Who needs winners to get the high score of the week anyway?)

2.) Edwardsfan-        87 (Why not use the two that were tied for the championship last year?)

3.) Tigersman-         82 (Possibly considered the two best drivers, they both got top 5s.)

THE FRONT PACK

Sfrye-                      82

5.) D2Moo-              79

6.) Section-             73

7.) Tenacfan-           71 (Uses his favorite driver to his advantage, unfortunately Kyle ruined the fun.)

Bradman-                71

THE FIELD

9.) River Rat-           67

10.) Fsu1dogs-           66

11.) Roushfenwayguy- 65

13.) Foreplus-             64

15.) Beardawg-           56

DANGER ZONE

16.) Berlyn-                53

17.) Mikeyfan-            50

18.) JOEpesci-            42

19.) Hoosierguy-         33 (Could be finding his way out if he doesn't make picks next time.)


Weeks 3-14: Each week, you must just change your lineup, in other words, you can keep one of your two drivers the same, as long as you change the other one, (Ex.= Week 3: J.J. and Jeff Gordon... Week 4: J.J. and Mark Matin is acceptable) now the only exception is that if you use the same driver for 4 consectutive races, I will make you switch him out, just don't want someone picking J.J. for all 12 races.

Winning Drivers List:

Mikeyfan-                1

Section-                  1

Floridawhite-            1

RFG's Eliminator 4.0 week 3

Well, the first two weeks are in the books, and as I said nobody would be eliminated so long as they made picks, everyone made at least one pick, however, Bradman just joined, and needs to make sure he makes a pick this week, and Tenacfan missed picking this week, and needs to make sure he doesn't miss it from here on out or he could have a quick exit. Anyways, lets find out the standings:


PODIUM

1.) Floridawhite-        158 (80) (+1) (Flordia gets off to the amazing starts that we are used to by now.)

Section-                   158 (84) (+3) (Spoils Florida's fun with the winner and a share of first place.)

3.) Mikeyfan-            153 (89) (+5) (The only person to actually pick the winner, oh wait Section did too... apocalypse time?)

NON-PODIUM 130 CLUB

4.) Fsu1dogs-           150 (77) (+1) (Two consistent weeks puts him right off the podium... tough podium to get to this session.)

5.) Edwardsfan-         148 (70) (-2)

6.) Berlyn-                147 (68) (-5) (Was first after Daytona, but a decent 68 won't cut it.)

7.) Roushfenwayguy- 137 (73) (0)

100 CLUB

8.) Fog-                   124 (78) (+4)

9.) Tenacfan-           122 (77) (+4) (He used RFG autopicks to get the winner, so it doesn't count to the winning drivers chosen.)

10.) Sfrye-                120 (71) (+1)

11.) Foreplus-            113 (41) (-5) (Both the women fell the most positions this week...)

12.) D2Moo-              111 (50) (-3)

Tigersman-                111 (51) (-2) (Well, Kyle Busch did good...)

GLAD THIS ISNT FOR ELIMINATION CLUB

14.) Hoosierguy-          84 (53) (+2) (Well, he got out of the cellar, but he's still in the basement.)

15.) River Rat-             69 (35) (0) (Misery loves company, in this case its Kasey Kahne taking down all the Daytona losers to new lows.)

ILL55INI-                    69* (Yaaaa.... this is with one week...)

16.) Metrojethro-          66 (24) (0) (Follows up his bad Daytona outing with a score lower than any other Daytona score... ouch...)

JOEpesci-                    62* (Almost caught up to last place with only 1 week of picks.)

Bradman-             N/A


So we learned that JOE may have what it takes to stick with this game, as he is learning it quickly... as for Hoosier and especially Metro, they need to learn that experimenting may not be the best idea when we go to actual eliminations starting this segment... and I don't really know if the Pheonix one was an experiment...

Weeks 3-14: Each week, you must just change your lineup, in other words, you can keep one of your two drivers the same, as long as you change the other one, (Ex.= Week 3: J.J. and Jeff Gordon... Week 4: J.J. and Mark Matin is acceptable) now the only exception is that if you use the same driver for 4 consectutive races, I will make you switch him out, just don't want someone picking J.J. for all 12 races.

RFG's Eliminator 4.0 week 2

OK, so after last week, we still have 17/18 people, since everyone has made picks, none of these people will be eliminated, yet we still need 1 more person in order to keep this game going for the rest of the season, so get someone to come on to this game. I'm also keeping registration open for this game until week 3 WHEN THE GREEN FLAG DROPS, not some stupid stuff where I lock everything before the scheduled start when you don't even know what's going to happen, only when the green flag drops since making picks anytime after that would give an unfair advantage. Anyways, lets get to the standings to see how people did week 1:


PODIUM

1.) Berlyn-               79 (Well, her RCR faith certainly paid off this race.)

2.) Floridawhte-        78 (The only one to pick the winner, but still not first... winning drivers are more important if you make it to the chase anyways...)

3.) Edwardsfan-        78

CHASING THE PODIUM

4.) Section-              74

5.) Fsu1dogs-           73

6.) Foreplus-            72

STILL HAS A CHANCE CLUB

7.) Roushfenwayguy- 64

8.) Mikeyfan-            64

9.) D2Moo-               61 (Well, the handicaps sure do help, second place helps too.)

10.) Tigersman-          60

VICTIMS OF DAYTONA

11.) Sfrye-                 49 (Going out on a limb because these two weeks don't count... well lets just leave at they don't count.)

12.) Fog-                   46 (Picked the lowest possible scoring driver.. which is Jimmie Johnson? What's going on???)

13.) Tenacfan-           45

14.) Metrojethro-         42 (Tough trying to learn this game on a track like Daytona.)

15.) River Rat-            34 (Jeff Gordon seemed like a good pick...)

16.) Hoosierguy-          31 (He got more points off handicap bonuses than race finishing points.)

17.) JOEpesci-              0 (Starting week 2)

So as excepted, there were some that did good, and some that got hit by Daytona's return to pack racing. Remember that there are bonus points in the next segment to whoever wins this one, so it is definetely worth trying if you still stand a chance to at least get into the top 3. It also looks like those handicap drivers (cough, Patrick and Bayne) didn't really pay off too much, we will have to wait and see if any handicap drivers start to become viable as Pheonix is a much better indicator.

RULES ON WINNING DRIVERS LIST: Whoever gets the most winning drivers (that makes the chase) will get a +3 bonus throughout all 3 segments, which could really make the difference between someone getting eliminated or saved. The second most will get +3 through the first 2 segments, and third gets the bonus for only the first segment. Remember that ties get rounded down, so if there is a 2 way tie for second, both people get treated as if they got 3rd, and if there is a 3 way tie for second, all of them get treated as if they got 4th, or in other words all of them get no bonuses.
