RFG's Eliminator THE CHASE Week 9

Posted on: November 8, 2012 2:56 pm

Well, we are now getting into crunch time in the chase, and we can see that with both Jimmie and Brad fighting hard for the title. The question is, will we see Jimmie and Brad at the top of the pack again, and will they take eachother out? Only time will tell, but for now, lets check our standings:

Roushfenwayguy (GHOST PICKS)- 224 (85) (+13)

Floridawhite-                               202 (82) (+15)

ILL55INI-                                   199 (88) (+10)

Bradman-                                   181 (74) (+8)

Fsu1dogs-                                  173 (87) (+6) (More than doubled his score that was from a combined two weeks.)

So it looks like we are starting to see three different groups, the Ghost pick group, which is proving that if he wasn't eliminated he may have won this whole thing... Florida and ILL55, where they are seperated by only 3 points! And then Bradman and FSU, but even they are 21 and 29 points off the lead, respectively, just avoiding a bad driver that everyone chooses could be the difference for them.

Using a recycled bonus, once again you must choose a third driver (this can be a driver that you used previously in this segment, just not one you are using this race) and predict their exact position of finish.

(I.E. Jeff Gordon (5th), finishes 7th= 3 points)

+5 for the exact answer, +3 for 1-2 off, +2 for 3-5 off, +1 for 6-10 off.

(Drivers crossed out indicate drivers you can no longer use.)
(AT THE BOTTOM OF THE PICKS, drivers will be named that one person or nobody can use, so make sure to check the bottom as well as next to your name to know who you can't pick.)
