BELOW this I write a blurb about that weeks race; and also which players did what, what drivers did well (or poorly) etc.  Folks say they love this as it is interesting and often funny



Congrats to   Steve B  -  Score 409      Max score  428
       Last cash 394

Well this was another unusual week.  many many of us picked the same drivers and we looked all race long to be having some large scores - However the late race yellows hurt many of our drivers and drove scores down.  Pick errors were way down from last week - I only saw one person accidently pick Wallace as a D driver.  Since so many of us picked the same drivers scores didn't do much.  I look for that to be different at the road course next weekend.  SO with that; lets get into the picks and their finish positions

A drivers saw just five drivers get most of the picks. Every driver was pickedLarson (55); Truex (46); Harvick (44);  Keselowski (35); and Kyle Busch (30).  Anita and I only had one driver different (she had Kyle Busch and I had Keselowski - She finished in the money and I missed by 32....  hhuumm
The rest of the picks played out like this with a big drop off - Logano (12); Hamlin (8); Elliott (7); Johnson and Kenseth (4 each); Earnhardt (2) and McMurray).  Hendrick Motorsports had a good showing posting three drivers inside the top 10.  The highest scoring drivers were Larson (85); Truex (70); Kyle Busch (59) and Elliott (52).  So those that took Elliott got some extra points.  Harvick only scored 32; and Keselowski 27.

B drivers we saw mostly picked were Blaney (53);  Bowyer (51) and rookie Jones (47).  Looks like folks decided the time was right to pick a rookie.  The rest of the picks was a big drop back to Kurt Busch (19); Suarez (7); Kahne and Newman (3 each); A Dillon (2) and Allmendinger (1).  Every B driver was picked also.  Kurt Busch scored the most points (33) and Jones and Bowyer were the next best,  Blaney hurt a lot of folks only scoring 20.

C drivers were ALL also picked this week again.  Stenhouse was picked by far the most (49); followed by Bayne (33) - The rest was a big drop off to McDowell, Menard, wallace, and Patrick (8 each); and Buescher and T Dillon (5 each).  Stenhouse scored the most; Bayne scored 24 and just eeked out Wallace with 22, T Dillon 23, Menard 19, and McDowell 18,

SIX D drivers were picked in the D group.  Only 37 drivers started the race this weekend; and we had 35 different drivers picked - I beleive this is the most different drivers (even when we had 40 drivers start).  Ragan was picked 37 time and DiBenedetto only 16.  we also had picks for Sieg, LaJoie, Whitt and Cassill.  Dibenedetto out-scored Ragan by one point.  All the D drivers finished 28th through 35th.

As stated above Steve B won this week,  Steve just edged out Fred R by a single point.  Bill H finished third only 5 points behind steve followed by Peggy D.  Another good showing for the gals this weekend.  Both Anita and Peggy D finished in the money.  we had three 'rookies' cahs also.  Michael R, Bill H and Tim C.  Congrats to all you folks too.

In Segment #2 we see that Michael R has increased his lead from 63 to now being 64 over Stephanie B.  Anita has moved up to third 80 back followed by Steve H2 and ed P1.  Last cash is Stebe B 128 out of the lead.  I'm looking for LOTS of points to swap around these next two weeks; so 100 points aren't much...  30th is only 100 points out of the cash; and I think folks can make up that much before the segment ends.

Jordan M1 still leads the overall; but Michael R has closedthe gap from 84 points back to now just 52 behind.  Chris T remains in third but has now fallen 105 back.  Ron C2 is last cash 234 back.

I had someone ask about a "Rookie of the Year" award.  I had never thought about that; but I think that's kinda cool.  Probably no cash award for it (this year); but it'd be fun to see how the first year players all matched up against each other. 

OH I almost forgot to cover the CHASE>  Another week another new winner - Steve B's win got him in the Chase.  Michael R is leading the points for non-winners... followed by Ed P1 and Bobby W2.  Last spot to advance currently is Ron C2with 5451.  Geoff is still the first guy outside looking in and is just 12 points back.  ELEVEN races to go and we have lots of people that can get in via points yet (of course there's always that automatic berth if you win)

I still haven't decided about adding bonus points this season (for second; thirds, etc) but I am leaning toward it just to give it a trial run and see if I run into any unexpected probelms I hadn't anticipated.  Probably would be a smart move before rolling it out as a new feature next season.  I AM leaning more and more toward it because it'd be smart to give it a trial run.
