The chase is winding down, and only two contestants really remain, Edwards and Stewart, and while there are only two left in that competition, we got more than that... at least I think, considering all the Edwards and Kenseth picks that both scored in the top 5. Also, not a single person has used Smoke... throughout the whole final segment... so how many will end up picking him during either Homestead or Pheonix? Anyways, lets see the scores everyone put up.:
Roushfenwayguy (ghost picks)- 232 (86)
Bored at Work- 229 (88) (+2 bonus)
Sfrye- 227 (87) (+2 bonus)
D2Moo- 207 (83 (+4 bonus)
Foreplus- 199 (67) (Denny Hamlin made Foreplus start to fade from the picture, with 4 total driver though, this game can be easily made up.)
ILL55INI- 198 (86)
So apart from Foreplus, there was a maximum of five points seperating each person in points for this week, but with many drivers that people can't use anymore, picks may start to get more different, and then we may see some differences in points, either that or everyone is getting rid of all the same drivers at the same times... also Foreplus had 2 points added to her score, I forgot to add +2 for her Biffle pick on the first week.
Roushfenwayguy (GHOST PICKS)- 146 (87)
Bored at Work- 141 (82)
Sfrye- 140 (81)
Foreplus- 132 (72)
D2Moo- 124 (85)
ILL55INI- 112 (70)
So the top 2 are extremely close, foreplus and D2Moo still are in the hunt, as 17 points can be made up pretty easily in 3 races, and ILL55... well he's gotta start making some good picks...
2 Handicap: 16th-22nd
Greg Biffle (replaces Kasey Kahne)
Juan Pablo Montoya
Paul Menard (from +4 to +2)
+4 Handicap: 23rd- 29th
Martin Truex Jr. (from +2 to +4)
+6 Handicap: 30th- 35th
J.J. Yeley (replaces Tony Raines)
+8 handicap: Anyone Below 35th
Just a heads up, since last week is the last week, there will be NO BONUS, because I want the last race to be fair...ish, anyways, its time to recycle ideas for this week, lead changes, which actually do not happen too much at Pheonix. +5 for the exact amount, +3 for 1-2 off, +1 for 3-5 off, and nothing for anything else.
For me this week, Tony Stewart sucks at Homestead, so I might as well go with him here. Also, its time to use Kurt Busch, since I can't use Edwards, Johnson or Gordon...
Roushfenwayguy (GHOST PICKS)- Tony Stewart, Kurt Busch (bonus= 10 laps) Carl Edwards Jimmie Johnson, Jeff Gordon Kevin Harvick, Brad Keselowski
Sfrye- Jimmie Johnson, Tony Stewart (19 laps) Greg Biffle Kevin Harvick Trevor Bayne,

Only Foreplus may use Dale Earnhardt Jr.
Nobody may use Matt Kenseth
Only Bored at Work can use Denny Hamlin
