This page shows the "WEEKLY" results, and Pay-outs.  When the file download look at the bottom and you'll also tabs that say "Segment" "Overall" "Super 7", and "Chase".
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


Hi Folks

THE WEEKLY RAP
WELL - Sadly the season has come to an end.... It seems it wasn't long ago we were anxiously awaiting the first green flag of the season at Daytona.  Where does the time go...??
I HOPE all of you have had fun playing this season.  
It is my GOAL to offer a game that is different than others; and apy out enough so folks have a shot to winning back their entry fee.  No one really "gets rich" amd even if you have an "off" year; it's not too terrible.
Not to mention things seem to run in cycles and if you had an off year this time; you'll probably do good next season.
It is some work for me; but I enjoy providing the game for all of you and hope you'll all come back in 2019 to give it another go.
Thanks again for playing - I hope you all had fun and will be back in 2019.  I don't anticipate any changes in the rules or entry fees.
Meanwhile in the off-season I plan to update (and add to) the web site to make it more comprehensive and informative.
PLEASE tell your friends about the site; and I hope you'll get some of your friends to come join us in the game next year.
Until then we'll all have to wait out the next months until once again we hear cars the roar of cars on the track and we once again see cars on the track
In the off season I know we will still see some drivers changes; along with the new Ford Mustang making it's appearance in the Cup Series.  It's no telling what other surprises we'll have before we race again.  I'll try to keep everyone updated as time goes on.
THANKS AGAIN for playing - I hope you all return for 2019. 

Driver Picks
A
We had Kyle Busch picked the most (58); Truex (54); and Logano (43); while Harvick was picked only 38.  But it appears people did ride the Big Three this last race and just hope for the best.  Most threw in Logano for good measure.  Seems that was the correct choices as these guys scored the most points for A drivers.  Logano scored 77 with Harvick getting 76; Truex 69 and Kyle Busch 63.  Larson had the next most picks (25) and scored fifth most points (62).  SO by and large we grabbed the right A group drivers.  It was a big drop back to next best as Keselowski only had 46 followed by Bowyer 39, Elliott 38, and Kurt Busch 37.  Blaney did the worst only getting 24 points.  If you didn't have Logano; it hurt your score.


B
I am thinking B drivers went a long way in determining who won the money.  Jones had the most picks with 60; but he must have had problems and finished 27th and only scored 17 points.  So we took a hit there.  Almirola had 58 picks and run well finishing ninth and scored 44.  It was a HUGE gap back to the next most picked as we had A Dillon (19); Newman (14); Bowman (11); and eight picks each went to Suarez, Kenseth and Johnson.  Bowman and Suarez killed peoples scores and they both scored 12 or less.  A Dillon and Kenseth were the other two best scoring B drivers.  Kenseth scored 40 and Dillon had 33.  Johnson scored 29 while Newman scored 26.  So you can see if you had Suarez or Bowman you took a big hit; while if you took Kenseth or A Dillon you got a nice boost.

C
Stenhouse had 55 picks while Menard got 45.  Allmendinger and Buescher both got 13 picks.  Stenhouse scored 25 points; while in a surprise Allmendinger scored 22.  Menard has been a disappointment (to me at least) the whole second half of the season.  He just scored 16 this week while Buescher scored 18.

D
D driver picks were split pretty even.  McDowell got 27 picks; while we saw Ragan get 26 picks.  Ragan was the best D scoring 21 while McDowell got 14.  T Dillon scored 19.  DiBenedetto scored 15 and Regan Smith only scored two.
Come back next year and we'll do this all over again  :-)



Weekly Winner -  GARY L
       Winning score - 454      MAX score - 470      Low To Cash - 432

CONGRATS to this weeks winner GARY L  He grabbed the final victory of the 2018 season.  His picks of Kenseth and Allmendinger put him over the top.  He beat Fred R and Justin B by six points.  Fourth went to Jackie G while Michael R and Skip H1 tied for fifth.  Tim T managed to hang on for last cash.

from the jaws of defeat by grabbing a win here in the last race before the cut to the Championship.  He beat out Stephanie B1 by just four points.  Gary was only and additional three points back in third.Shkip H2 and Tim C rounded out the Top 5.  Last cash went to Rick who had 392.  All the way down to 42nd was with 40 points of last cash.


Segment - Geoff M started with a bang this segment and has been back sliding the last several weeks and as we headed into this week he was just barely hanging on to a slim 12 point lead over Blaine S1.  Blaines scored 422 this week; while Geoff scored407.  When the dust settled Blaine had snatched away the win; while Michael R had a good enough week that he and Geoff tied for second.  Anita was fourth and Skip H2 rounded out the top five.  Last cash went to Terry J as he edged out Steve B by six points.  Rick K was eleventh last week and had a bad week.  He fell out of the money to 19th.


Overall
 - In the overall; Tim T used a great early season start  to parlay that into a big enough lead to hang on and win the overall.  Michael R had been catching him for several weeks; but in the end it was too much to over come.  Still second pays very well... as does all the top twelve spots.  Bobby W accidently picked Jones twice (as did Ray) and those two still managed to hang on to the final two cash spots.  Ray just beat out Terry J by three points.


THE CHASE -   It all came down to the final race for the four folks that made the final race.  I kind of felt behind the eight ball since I had no idea how drivers practiced on Saturday; but after looking over everything I think the only swap I might have made was taking A Dillon instead of Newman.  And that only would have gained me seven points; so I would have still finished second.  Randy S had Bowman that sort of torpedoed his efforts; while Nathan had Blaney / Bowyer who don't look to have run well.
The other four paying spots saw MIshael R; Anita; Skip H2 and Bobby W1 get the final four cash spots.  Ray only missed by 18; Steve B by 38 and Chris W and Terry J by 45.  Funny we had about 4000 points in the segment and for many it came down to a mere 45 points.

Super 7 --- MARTINSVILLE.  Well.... Martinsville saw a great battle in determining who won the money here.  Beating and banging and frammin' and bammin'.  It's the last race of the Super 7.  Geoff M managed to hang on and just barely edged out Tim T by five tiny little points.  Geoff will picks up the extra $25 handed out; while Tim got the ten bucks for second. 

The Rookie of the Year chase... To be honest it's STILL up in the air.  As I said a few weeks back; unless someone really sets up here the last few weeks I'm going to have a tough decision on who will win this.
Lets cover where our leading rookies stand.
1) - Randy S has three wins; while Scott E has two.  Tim T does not have a win yet.  It's hard to believe he has FOUR second place finishes
2) - Looking back I see that in segment one we had Scott E, Tim T and Terry J all finish in the money.  And in segment two we had David F, Scott E and Tim T in the money with Tim T winning the segment.  Finally in segment three Tim T, Randy S, and Scott E held down the top three spots in the money.
3) - In the overall we see Tim T with a big lead.  But Scott E is hanging right in there in fourth; and well within striking distance of second.  Terry J holds down the last Chase spot.  Randy S and David F are both within 130 points of the money.
4) - In the Super 7 we saw Tim T move up into second; while Scott E dropped to fifth.  Terry J ended up eighth,
5) - Finally, in the Chase we have Randy S, Tim T, and Scott E all have advanced to the third round of the Chase.  Tim and Randy currently lead; but Scott is easily within striking distance to advance to the final round at Homestead.
This could go a ways in helping to determine who earns this reward.  LOTS of things still up in the air.
