Well, Tony Stewart finally tanked, and Jimmie did well, things are finally looking more normal, although Kurt Busch, he usually struggles at Dover to say the least and he won... nobody thought of this unthinkable result, including fan of Kurt, myself. Anyways lets see the standings that will go on for 3, not 2 weeks!
PODIUM (85 CLUB)
1.) ILL55INI- 89 (+3 bonus) (Well, the bonus broke the tie... but it went the wrong way in my opinion.)
2.) Roushfenwayguy- 88 (+2 bonus) (Couldn't do much better w/o Kurt Busch.)
3.) D2Moo- 87 (+3 bonus)
Sfrye- 87 (+2 bonus)
Bored at Work- 87 (+5 bonus) (Only one to hit the bonus right on the nose, and it was a nice even number.)
NON-PODIUM 80 CLUB
6.) Foreplus- 84 (+2 bonus)
7.) Fogducker- 83 (+4 bonus)
8.) River Rat- 82 (+3 bonus)
Well, a very good week to say the least, everything we could wish except for mixing up the standings, as in 7 points seperates first from last, therefore is no danger zone just yet, but maybe Kansas will be able to change that.
Segment Two will last 3 races, weeks 29-31, TWO people will be eliminated from the game at the end of the segment. You must use AT LEAST 4 different drivers, and you can't keep the same driver for all three races, meaning you only have to switch one driver out each week. (Refer to segment one rules for ties.)
Segment Three will last 5 races, week 32-36, THE WINNER will be declared, and so 5 people are virtually being eliminated. Every week you must pick different drivers, meaning you must choose 10 UNIQUE DRIVERS. (Incase of tie, the tiebreaker will be whoever got the most points through this segment WITHOUT HANDICAPS OR BONUSES, if there still is a tie, then the person who has the highest scoring most recent week will be declared the winner. If there still is a tie, then whoever made the picks first each week will win, because someone is obviously cheating .)
Bonuses will be given for each race.
And now for the bonuses:
Bored at Work, for picking 7 winning drivers will get a +3 bonus throughout the chase, congratulations!
Now for the newly revised handicap lists, these will last through the first five weeks of the chase.
2 Handicap: 16th-22nd
Martin Truex Jr.
Juan Pablo Montoya
+4 Handicap: 23rd- 29th
+6 Handicap: 30th- 35th
+8 handicap: Anyone Below 35th
Bonus for this week is very similar to last week's, just guess how many LEAD CHANGES there are throughout the race, this is not simply leaders, but all the lead changes from lap to lap. Scoring is as followed:
+5 exact amount, +4 within one of exact amount, +3 within 2-3 of amount, +2 within 4-5 of amount, +1 within 6-10 of amount. Lot of lenience here, so most people should get at least one point.
For me, I'm going to keep Johnson, and I'll also go with Jeff Gordon, who can't stop getting top 5s here.
