David The Mudslinging Throttle Jockey Wins Segment 3

Joey Logano

Joey Logano won his first Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series championship Sunday night, completing his late-season rise to title-winning form for the Team Penske No. 22 team at Homestead-Miami Speedway.

Logano outdistanced Kyle Busch, Kevin Harvick, and Martin Truex Jr. — 2018’s “Big 3” — in the season-ending Ford EcoBoost 400. The title marks the 28-year-old driver’s first crown in his 10th season of competition in NASCAR’s top division.

Logano’s triumph came as redemption after a heartbreaking absence from the playoff picture last season. Logano won just once in 2017, and that victory was obscured by a post-race penalty that negated an automatic championship berth.

“We did it! We won the championship! I can’t believe it,” Logano said after emerging from his car. “I don’t know what to say. This team, Roger Penske, Todd Gordon, the pit crew. Oh my God. They gave me the car I needed at the end to do my job. Put me in position to do my job. I couldn’t be more proud of them.”

 

The Fraternal Order of The Go Fast

 

Well, Zee, aka Sissy, saved up her Joey Logano pick to make it really count.  “Sliced Bread”, Joey Logano, won this race, won the 2018 MENCS championship and deposited 40 points into Sissy’s third segment totals.  As it happens from time to time, the winner of the race didn’t produce the most points for a player!

 

The Movers and The Shakers

 

For the last race of the season, Snoopy Dawn emerges as the weekly highest scorer.  Ol Snoopy was riding shotgun this weekend with the only dude that could run 400 miles within an inch of the fence, and not wad up his hot rod, “Young Money”, Kyle Larson!  The reward for Snoopy was a very cool 43 points and ten chewed up fingernails!

 

Following Sissy on the scoring pylon is a very mismatched quartet of players scoring 34 points from two different drivers!  Those four players include Leon Your Most Humble Sheriff, Bobby Blue Crush, David The Mudslinging Throttle Jockey, and Edie The Las Vegas Super StarYour Most Humble Sheriff, Blue Crush, and The Mudslinging Throttle Jockey all were letting it all ride on “Freaky Fast” Kevin Harvick, while The Las Vegas Super Star was betting the farm on “Blazingly Bad” Brad Keselowski.  All four players racked up 34 points to end the segment.

Meanwhile, a wacky duo was the fourth highest scorers, adding 33 points to their totals.  These two players are Jim, aka Chiefy and Jeremy The Coach putting all their marbles in the marble sack of “The Delivernator”, Denny Hamlin.

Rounding out the top five scorers this week is Karen The Highly Opinionated Southen Bell, Linda B. The Cookie Mom, and Doug The Gandy Candy Man, all adding 30 points to their 3rd segment totals.  The Cookie Mom and The Gandy Candy Man were supporting the young man from Dawsonville, GA, Chase Elliott.  But The Opinionate One was rooting for Clint Bowyer.

Because the leaderboard was fairly compact, in referencing the scores, nineteen of the twenty-two players swapped places to end the segment.  The only players who remained in their previous places were the 3rd segment winner, The Mudslinging Throttle Jockey.  Yep, everyone take notice that The Mudslinger finally broke through from his normal backmarker residence!  In fact, he was the very first winner of The Outhouse Award when this was first instituted a few years back and obviously felt much more comfortable trying to come from behind!  The other two players who did not change places were the two ladies who have hovered around The Outhouse all segment, Zee, aka Sissy and Edie The Las Vegas Super Star!

The biggest mover of the week is Bernie The Bay Area Bandit.  The Bandit had a really bad day at the races plummeting six (6) places to fall into 9th place.

The husband-wife duo of Snoopy Dawn and Carlton The Doorman moved four (4) spots this week.  Snoopy was moving in the right direction stepping up to the pay window in 2nd place!  The Doorman was not so fortunate, dropping like a hot potato four places to sit in 15th place.

Meanwhile, Amber The Extremely Lucky Cheddar Head, Lonna The Quilt Angel, and Jeremy The Coach moved three places.  The Quilt Angel and The Coach stepped their game up a notch, moving up three places to end the season in 10th and 11th, respectively,  However, The Cheddar Head ran out of talent and racetrack simultaneously and descended three places to land in a tie for 5th place with Chiefy.

Additionally, Dan The Numbers Dude and Carole, aka Rudy dropped two positions to sit in 12th and 20th, respectively.

The remaining 11 players all moved up or down one position this week.

 

Straight From The Crapper

 

With this race being the end of the season, The Crappiest PIck of The Week goes to Carole, aka Rudy.  When you can only gather up a single digit to add to your totals you can be assured that you are in the running for The Crappiest Pick of The Week award.  So Rudy could only muster up one itty-bitty point this week and she takes this award witrh her to ponder for the offseason!

To end the season Zee, aka Sissy, can take the next 93 days off and keep The Outhouse in good shape and ready for another inhabitant at the beginning of the 2019 season!

Harvick Is The Favorite For Homestead

DSC_2982

Well, the race season has finally wound down to the Championship Weekend at Homestead.  Where did the 38 weeks go?  The season started about 200 miles North of Homestead at “The World Center of Speed” at Daytona International Speedway back in mid-February, and here it is mid-November.

There is just one last chance for the Final Four to realize their dreams!  It all comes down to who will power through all the pressure and perform impeccably under the most pressure to date!

 

Our Homestead Picks

 

There are six drivers that have more than one rooter this week.  But the big fish this week is one of “The Big Three”, Kevin Harvick!  Supporting this big fish in the finale of 2018 is Bobby Blue Crush, David The Mudslinging Throttle Jockey, and of course, Leon Your Most Humbel Sheriff!  Two of the three players, Blue Crush, and Your Most Humble Sheriff could really use a win at Homestead.  The Mudslinger most likely could hang onto his lead, even if Harvick did poorly Sunday.

Linda B. The Cookie Mom and Doug The Gandy Candy Man are united in their support for William Clyde Elliott, Jr., aka Chase.  Could Chase be a race and championship spoiler at Homestead?  Stay tuned that could be a very interesting storyline Sunday!

However, Jim, aka Chiefy, and Jeremy The Coach has a very different take on the results that they are looking for on Sunday.  Both players are rooting for Denny Hamlin to be the darkhorse winner at Homestead.

But A&M Aggie Sue and Ol Skid-Marc have a very different view of what they want to see as the finality at Homestead.  Both players are staunchly behind their driver, Mr. Seven-Time, Jimmie Johnson.  They are hoping that ol JJ can end the season on a high note, a victory at Homestead!

Laying low and below the radar are Kathy The Church Forecloser and Bernie The Bay Area Bandit.  Both ladies are riding shotgun with “That Jones Boy”, Erk.

Lastly, Lonna The Quilt Angel and Snoopy Dawn are joining forces to back “Young Money”, Kyle Larson, for the win at the season finale.

Slightly more than one-third of The Redneck Fantasy League, nine players in total, are in bidnez for themselves for the last race!

Sunday evening there will be just one driver and team that will be fully engulfed in their “river of dreams”!

Good luck to all!

The Mudslinger Extends His Lead

Kyle Busch

Holding off Brad Keselowski after a restart with 12 laps left in Sunday’s Can-Am 500 at ISM Raceway, Kyle Busch claimed his eighth Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series victory of the season and led NASCAR’s Big Three into the Championship 4 race at Homestead-Miami Speedway.

After a wreck on Lap 269 of 312 ended the championship hopes of Kurt Busch and Chase Elliott—both of whom had been in the mix throughout the day—Busch grabbed the lead from Joe Gibbs Racing teammate Erik Jones on Lap 277 and held it the rest of the way, through two subsequent cautions and restarts.

Busch’s victory, the 51st of his career and his second at the one-mile track—coming 13 years after his first one—tied him for the series lead with Kevin Harvick, who had to overcome an early flat tire to join Busch, Martinsville winner Joey Logano and Martin Truex Jr. (14th on Sunday) in the Championship 4.

The Fraternal Order of The Go Fast

 

It seems like most everybody has used their Kyle Busch choice already.  Not a single player had KyBu at Phoenix, so this award goes back into the closet til the checkered flag flies next week at Homestead.

 

The Movers and The Shakers

 

The biggest scorer of the week is Karen The Highly Opinionated Southern Belle, racking up 45 pointsThe Highly Opinionated One was the only player riding shotgun with “Young Money”, Kyle Larson at the newly reconfigured ISM Raceway.

Scoring almost as many points as The Highly Opinionated One is a trio consisting of  Kathy The Church Forecloser, Carlton The Doorman, and Jim, aka Chiefy.  The slightly mismatched threesome added 39 points to their totals from Kevin Harvick’s fifth-place finish.

Meanwhile, Bobby Blue Crush was rooting for the 2017 MENCS champ, Martin Truex, Jr.  For his support, Blue Crush pocketed 31 points from MTJ’s 14th place finish.

Additionally, Lonna The Quilt Angel and Carole, aka Rudy, were supporting “The Rocket Man”, Ryan Newman.  Both were hoping that Newman could have repeated his ISM Raceway victory in 2017.

Lastly, Leon Your Most Humble Sheriff and Ol Skid-Marc were rooting for “That Jones Boy”, Erik, at ISM Raceway.  On the last restart EJ started on the front row, but with old used up tires, he faded back to finish the race in 17th place.  Nevertheless, this pair added a nifty 23 points to their totals.

Once again almost everyone on the ol totem pole exchanged places when the Sun set in Phoenix.  The only players who remained in their previous places were our leader David The Mudslinging Throttle Jockey, Lonna The Quilt Angel, Edie The Las Vegas Super Star, as well as Zee, aka Sissy.

The biggest movers of the week are Jim, aka Chiefy, Karen The Highly Opinionated Southern Belle, Carlton The Doorman, and Jeremy The Coach., moving four (4) places this week.  Chiefy, The Highly Opinionated One, and The Doorman each scurried up the leaderboard four spots to sit in 7th, 8th, and 11th, respectively.  But The Coach was not so lucky this week, falling four spots to rest in 14th place.

The threesome of Snoopy Dawn, A&M Aggie Sue, as well as Doug The Gandy Candy Man all stumbled and fell three (3) positions to reside in 6th, 12th, and 14th places, respectively.

There is still another foursome who moved two (2) places on the scoring pylon.  Those four players include Amber The Extremely Lucky Cheddar Head, Jerry The Buschwacker,  Dan The Numbers Cruncher, and Kathy The Church Forecloser.  Both The Cheddar Head and the Church Forecloser stepped up their game moving up two spots to sit in 2nd and 15th places, respectively.  Conversely, The Buschwacker and The Numbers Dude tumbled two spots to park themselves in 9th and 10th, respectively.

The rest of the players either moved up or down one position this week.

 

Straight From The Crapper

 

This week Doug The Gandy Candy Man, with his microscopic one point, has earned “The Crappiest PIck of The Week” award singlehandedly!

Additionally, Zee, aka Sissy, remains firmly entrenched in “The Outhouse” this week!

So after the checkered flag flew at ISM Raceway Kyle Busch, Kevin Harvick, Martin Truex, Jr., and Joey Logano remain in the hunt for the 2018 MENCS championship this weekend at Homestead.  Those four can “dream on”!

Can Blaney Punch His Ticket At Phoenix?

Ryan Blaney

Well, this Sunday we will be getting the 2018 seasons white flag at Phoenix.  The Phoenix race is always a very exciting one to watch on TV, and even more fun to watch in person!  It looks like Ol Chiefy, The Buschwacker, and possibly A&M Aggie Sue will be in the grandstands to watch this race.  Additionally, Your Most Humble Sheriff will be roaming the media center, the garage area, pit road, and around the catchfence, looking to bring some good photo ops from ISM Raceway to The Redneck Fantasy League, and of course, Working On My Redneck.

 

Our Phoenix Picks

 

As the above photo suggests Ryan Blaney is the top voter-getter this week for Phoenix.  There are four players, Edie The Las Vegas Super Star, A&M Aggie Sue, Linda B. The Cookie Mom, as well as Dan The Numbers Cruncher who are solidly behind Blaney this week.

Next up for discussion are three drivers who have three players each in their corner at Phoenix. Alphabetically speaking, the first driver to be considered is the driver formally known as “The Outlaw”, but has shed that moniker (in light of his former girlfriend now on trial for embezzlement and fraud) for his given name, Kurt Busch. (I believe that was a smart mover for Kurt!)

Kathy The Church Forecloser, Carlton The Doorman, and Jim, aka Chiefy, are supporting probably the hottest driver at Phoenix over the past five years, Kevin Harvick.  While Harvick is an excellent choice at ISM Raceway, and he is surely gonna be the man to watch for the championship, this brave trio might have used their Harvick choice one race too soon!  (Just my most humble opinion!)

Even though he has had a very quiet season, Mr. Seven-Time, Jimmie Johnson, has recruited a very odd mixture of supporters this week.  The three players who are rallying behind Ol JJ are Linda R. The Lemonade Lefty, Jerry The Buschwacker, as well as Amber The Extremely Lucky Cheddar Head.

Additionally, we have two drivers who will have two players riding shotgun with them as the green rag is waved at ISM Raceway.  It appears that Ol Skid-Marc will be teaming with his older and much wiser uncle, Leon Your Most Humble Sheriff, in supporting “that Jones Boy”, Erik.  Both are hoping that EJ can pull off an underdog victory this weekend in The Valley of The Sun.

Rounding out our choices this week will conclude with Lonna The Quilt Angel and Carole, aka Rudy putting all their marbles into the marble sack of “Rocket Man” Ryan Newman.

When the checkered flag falls late Sunday afternoon there will be two emotions that will prevail.  For the four drivers who will proceed on to Homestead to challenge for the 2018  MENCS championship, their dreams will be one step closer to fulfillment.  For the four drivers who will be eliminated from the championship fight, their dreams will come crashing down and will have to wait for another year to see them come to fruition.

These dreams go on when I close my eyes
Every second of the night I live another life
These dreams that sleep when it’s cold outside
Every moment I’m awake the further I’m away

Eight drivers, two races, one championship, who will be the last man standing at Homestead?

David The Mudslinger Slips Back Into The Lead

Kevin Harvick

This time, there was no late-race glitch to interrupt Kevin Harvick’s domination of a Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series race.

Streaking away from pole winner Ryan Blaney during an overtime restart on Lap 336, Harvick won Sunday’s AAA Texas 500 at Texas Motor Speedway with the utmost of authority, sweeping the stages and leading a race-high 177 laps on the way to his series-best eighth victory of the season and a guaranteed spot in the Nov. 18 Championship 4 race at Homestead-Miami Speedway.

The victory was Harvick’s first since Michigan in August, and it broke a streak of bad luck during which the driver of the No. 4 Stewart-Haas Racing Ford led laps but failed to find Victory Lane, thanks to mechanical issues or pit road mistakes.

 

The Fraternal Order of The Go Fast

 

Lonna The Quilt Angel is the only player to be onboard with the race winner, Kevin Harvick, this week.  Since Harvick won both stages and the race, The Quilt Angel racked up a very cool 60 points this week.

 

The Movers and The Shakers

 

Scoring the second most points this week was David The Mudslinging Throttle Jockey.  The Mudslinger was riding shotgun with Ryan Blaney at Texas, racked up 51 points, and climbed up into the lead with just two races remaining this year!

Also having a good day at Texas was Bernie The Bay Area Bandit.  The Bandit stowed away inside Ryan Blaney’s hot rod for the duration of the AAA Texas 500, scored 45 points, and only surfaced during the Victory Lane celebration!

Meanwhile, a trio of players, Edie The Las Vegas Super Star, Amber The Extremely Lucky Cheddar Head, as well as Doug The Gandy Candy Man, all racked up 42 points this week

Rounding out the top five scorers this week is a twosome consisting of Linda R. The Lemonade Lefty and Jerry The Buschwacker.  Both players were supporting Aric Almirola this week and added 35 points to their segment totals.

There was widespread movement throughout the leaderboard this week.  In fact, the only players that remained in their previous places were Karen The Highly Opinionated Southern Belle, Edie The Las Vegas Super Star, and Zee, aka Sissy.

The largest mover of the week was Jim, aka Chiefy who dropped like a bad habit six (6) places to land in 11th place.

Not too far behind Chiefy was Lonna The Quilt Angel and Carole, aka Rudy moving four (4) places this week.  The Quilt Angel is making her late segment surge towards the middle of the pack, landing this week in 14th place, whereas Rudy is dropping like a hot potato, landing in 19th place.

The foursome consisting of Amber The Cheddar Head, Bobby Blue Crush, Jerry The Buschwacker, and Linda B. The Cookie Mom all moved three (3) spots when the checkered flag fell at Texas.  The Cheddar Head, Blue Crush, as well as The Buschwacker all stepped up their game and their positions three places to sit in 4th, 6th, and 7th, respectively.  Conversely, The Cookie Mom tumbled three places to land in 16th place.

The quintet, Snoopy Dawn, Dan the Numbers Cruncher, A&M Aggie Sue, Jeremy The Coach, and Kathy The Church Forecloser moved just two (2) places at the end of the race.  Aggie Sue and The Church Forecloser moved up two places to reside in 9th and 18th, respectively.  However, Snoopy Dawn, The Numbers Dude, and The Coach stumbled down the scoring pu=ylon to rest in 3rd, 8th, and 10th, respectively.

The remaining six players all moved up or down one spot when the dust settled.

 

Straight From The Crapper

 

The Crappiest Pick of The Week goes to Carole, aka Rudy, this week who racked up a single digit, just 7 points total.

For the second week in a row Zee, aka Sissy, is in total control of The Outhouse, with just a very small challenge from The Las Vegas Super Star!

Next week all three series travel one last time out the Valley of The Sun, Phoenix, AZ and the brand new reconfigured ISM Raceway!  With the new reconfiguration, the front straight becomes the back straight. The start/finish line is now near of back dogleg and the race track will really race very differently!  Even though ISM Raceway will race like a brand new track it will continue to do what it has always done, shatter some racer’s championship dreams!

Chase, Kurt, and Jimmie Share The Wealth At Texas

Jimmie Johnson

This week NASCAR rolls Southwest to the great state of Texas to race at the Texas Motor Speedway.  For those who have never been in this part of the country, the race trace sits approximately 15 miles to the Northwest of DFW airport.  With this race being the penultimate of the 2018 season, action will be heating up this week.  Several drivers are in a must-win situation, which now puts them in desperate times.  Remember that there is a saying that desperate people will desperate things in desperate times!

 

OUR TEXAS CHOICES

 

This week we have three drivers headlining our choices for the AAA Texas 500 that have amassed a rooting section of three players each.  Could this be the race where Kurt Busch punches his ticket through to the championship race at Homestead?  Well, three players, Kathy The Church Forecloser, Edie The Las Vegas Super Star, as well as Amber The Extremely Lucky Cheddar Head are 100% behind Kurt this week at Texas.

Meanwhile, Kilimanjaro Bobby, Carlton The Doorman, as well as Leon Your Most Humble Sheriff are locking arms and hoping that they can hear the siren sound atop of the Dawsonville pool hall in Dawsonville, GA, sound when “Awesome Bill From Dawsonville’s” kid, Chase Elliott, takes the checkered flag at TMS.

Jeremy The Coach, Zee, aka Sissy, as well as Dan The Numbers Cruncher are firmly behind Mr. Seven-Time, Jimmie Johnson, this week.

Additionally, there are three drivers who have a pair of rooters each at Texas.  To begin with Linda R. The Lemonade Lefty and Jerry The Buschwacker are pairing up in their support for a huge underdog in the Playoffs, Aric Almirola.

Likewise, Snoopy Dawn and Jim, aka Chiefy are joining forces this week to root for the zany Clint Bowyer.

Lastly Karen The Highly Opinionated Southern Belle and Ol Skid-Marc will be riding shotgun at Texas with “Blazingly Bad” Brad Keselowski.

This week we have six players that are in bidnez for themselves!

Good luck to all!

Snoopy Dawn Clings To Her Small Lead

Joey Logano

Joey Logano secured his spot in the NASCAR Playoffs’ Championship 4 when he held off Martin Truex Jr. in a frantic final lap and took the checkered flag in the First Data 500 at Martinsville Speedway on Sunday.

Logano’s first career Monster Energy Series win in Martinsville came on a dominant day when he led a race-high 309 laps.

Logano had taken the lead for what appeared the final time for good off pit road on Lap 460 of 500, starting from the top spot after his No. 22 Team Penske pit crew helped him off pit road first.

But Truex fought his way back to the front after starting at the rear when his No. 78 Furniture Row Racing Toyota failed pre-race inspection.  Truex finally drove his way to the front and battled with Logano for the last 30 laps.  For the last six laps, those two were door handle to door handle battling for the lead.  Truex cleanly took the lead with one lap remaining.  Logano got back to Truex’s bumper going into turn three on the last lap and dropped kicked Truex coming out of four heading to the checkered flag.  As they crossed the finish line with their motors on the rev limiter, it was Logano narrowly in the lead for the win.  Is there a payback coming back to Logano?  In other words, is Logano “flirting with disaster”?

Denny Hamlin managed to sneak past Truex to finish second. Truex, who now has not won in 78 starts on short tracks, finished third. Kyle Busch and Brad Keselowski rounded out the top five.

The Fraternal Order of The Go Fast

 

Joey Logano had three players stowed away riding shotgun this week.  Those three players rooting on “Sliced Bread” include Karen The Highly Opinionated Southern Belle, Linda B. The Cookie Mom, as well as Ol Skid-Marc.  All three picked up a really cool 59 points to add to their 3rd segment totals.

 

The Movers and The Shakers

 

Following the three players who were riding with the race winner, the second biggest scorer of the week is David The Mudslinging Throttle Jockey.  The Throttle Jockey racked up a nifty 56 points for Denny Hamlin’s second-place finish.

Also fairing very well this week is Lonna The Quilt Angel, Bobby Blue Crush, as well as Amber The Extremely Lucky Cheddar Head.  This unlikely and very motley crew were riding tall with Kyle Busch and for their support received a much-needed score of 49 points.

Meanwhile, Linda R. The Lemonade Lefty was jumping up and down with excitement when Chase Elliott rolled across the finish line in 7th place gathering up 34 points for the afternoon.

Rounding out the top five scorers this week is Carlton The Doorman, Bernie The Bay Area Bandit, as well as Dan The Numbers Cruncher.  These characters had all of her marbles in the marble sack of “Blazingly Bad” Brad Keselowski and were rewarded 33 points.

Only four players, Snoopy Dawn, Jim, aka Chiefy, Jeremy The Coach, and Edie The Las Vegas Super Star remained in their previous resting spots.  The remaining eighteen players, however, all changed zip codes this week!

The largest mover of the week is Jerry The BuschwackerThe Buschwacker had a terrible race, scoring only 1 point, dropping him like a bad habit eight (8) places to sit now in 10th place.

Having a very race at Martinsville is Linda B. The Cookie Mom stepping up five (5) positions to sit in 13th place at the end of the day.

Likewise, David The Mudslinging Throttle Jockey has had a change of fortune climbing up four (4) places to be back in the money sitting in 2nd place this week.

This next quartet of players, Amber The Extremely Lucky Cheddar Head, Karen The Highly Opinionated Southern Belle, Ol Skid-Marc, and well as Kathy The Church Forecloser had a very mixed result when the checkered flag waved.  The Cheddar Head, The Highly Opinionated One, and Ol Skidz stepped up their game and stepped up their place of residence three (3) places this week to 7th, 12th, and 19th, respectively.  Conversely, The Church Forecloser dropped like a bad habit three spots to sit now in 20th position.

Six players moved two (2) positions at the end of the Martinsville race.  Those six players include Kilimanjaro Bobby, A&M Aggie Sue, Linda R. The Lemonade Lefty, Carole, aka Rudy, Lonna The Quilt Angel, Doug The Gandy Candy Man, and Zee, aka SissyKilimanjaro Bobby and  The Quilt Angel moved up two places to sit in 8th and 17th, respectively.  Meanwhile, Aggie Sue, The Lemonade Lefty, Rudy, and Sissy all dropped two places to sit in 1th, 14th, 15th, 16th, and 22nd, respectively.

 

Straight From The Crapper

 

This week “The Crappiest Pick of The Week” goes to Jerry The Buschwacker who could only manage to add just one (1) point to his totals this week.

We have a new Princess of The Poophouse this week!  Sissy has evicted The Las Vegas Super Star this week and has taken over sole control of “The Outhouse”.

Check out the results of the First Data 500 at Martinsville.

It’s A Mixed Bag At Martinsville

Joey Logano

This week the NASCAR haulers are heading 114 miles Northeast from Charlotte to Martinsville Speedway this week.  It is the smallest track on the NASCAR schedule.  Since Martinsville is the race track with the slowest speeds, it would be fair to say that there may be some retribution handed out this weekend!  It usually is a place where some scores get settled!

That being said, Martinsville usually has some very good, hard, close, door-to-door racing during the 500 lap race.

 

Our Martinsville Choices

 

This week at Martinsville we have three drivers, Kyle Busch, Brad Keselowski, and Joey Logano, getting the lion’s share of the votes from our players.

Our recently evicted “Outhouse” resident, Lonna The Quilt Angel, as well as Bobby Blue Crush, and Amber the Extremely Lucky Cheddar Head are in the VIP rooting section of Kyle Busch.

Still Carlton The Doorman, Bernie The Bay Area Bandit, and Dan The Numbers Cruncher are putting all their marbles into the marble sack of “Blazingly Bad” Brad Keselowski.

Karen The Highly Opinionated Southern Belle, Linda B. The Cookie Mom, and Ol Skid-Marc are pushing all their chips in supporting Joey Logano’s attempt to punch his ticket through to the championship four at Homestead.

Additionally, we have four drivers who have amassed a support system of two players this week.  The first driver to discuss is Ryan Blaney.  Both Kathy The Church Forecloser and Jim, aka Chiefy are firmly behind the third-generation race car driver this week.

But  A&M Aggie Sue and Jeremy The Coach have a different outlook at Martinsville.  Aggie Sue and The Coach are firmly ensconced with the SHR driver, Clint Bowyer this week.

Meanwhile, Linda R. The Lemonade Lefty and Carole, aka Rudy are riding shotgun with the hottest young driver over the last month, Awesome Bill’s kid, Chase Elliott!.

After doing my basic add to’s, I have mentioned 15 players above.  That means there are six players that are individual thinkers or more aptly, in bidnez for themselves!

As I alluded to in the opening paragraph of this post, Martinsville has always been a place to exercise retribution!  Martinsville also has always been a place where egos get bruised, tempers get lost, and sheet metal gets crumpled.  Additionally, because of the size of the track either someone is in your way or you are in someone’s way, which is one reason that tempers flare here.

Editor’s Note:  All crewmembers should check their egos, their emotions, and all weapons at the pit gate.  Most importantly, keep your hands to yourself!

Good luck to all.!

Snoopy Dawn Slips Into The Lead After Kansas

Chase Elliott

Chase Elliott powered to victory Sunday at Kansas Speedway, as the Round of 8 was set in the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series Playoffs.

Elliott led the final 44 of 267 laps in Sunday’s Hollywood Casino 400. His Hendrick Motorsports No. 9 Chevrolet was .903 seconds ahead of Kyle Busch at the drop of the checkered flag as Elliott claimed his third win of the season and the third of his premier-series career. The win was also Elliott’s second in the last three weeks.

“I didn’t see why not,” Elliott said of his chances at claiming two of the three races in the postseason’s Round of 12. “I thought last year we had a pretty solid run at it and didn’t win any obviously, but had some really good runs. Just so proud of my race team and the pit stops we had today. Alan (Gustafson, crew chief) made some great calls. We just can’t get complacent. This is a huge time of year. We have a lot of work to do and a long way to go.”

Busch held on for second place in the Joe Gibbs Racing No. 18 Toyota. Kyle Larson snagged third place with Erik Jones fourth and defending series champion Martin Truex Jr. fifth.

 

The Fraternal Order Of The Go Fast

 

Can you hear the siren blaring above the pool hall in Dawsonville, GA?  Well, rest assured that it has been wailing ever since the checkered flag flew at the Kansas Speedway!  There are two players who are loving that siren sound!   Riding shotgun with William Clyde Elliott, Jr., aka Chase Elliott is unlikely duo of Jim, aka Chiefy and his nephew, Jeremy The Coach.  Both players racked up a very nice 48 points to add to their late 3rd segment totals.

 

The Movers and The Shakers

 

It was not only Chiefy and The Coach who racked up 48 points this week, but Snoopy Dawn and Leon Your Most Humble Sheriff added that same point total to their segment.  Unlike Chiefy and The Coach, Snoopy and The Sheriff were rooting for Kyle Busch this week who also put 48 points up on the board via stage and race points.

Both Lonna The Quilt Angel and Carole, aka Rudy, logged a nifty 47 points this week from different drivers.  The Quilt Angel was rooting and hollering for Ryan Blaney, while Rudy was putting all her marbles in the sack of Joey Logano.

Meanwhile, Amber The Extremely Lucky Cheddar Head was just that this week, extremely lucky!  She hooked her wagon the that of “That Jones Boy”, Erik.  Jones had a really good afternoon, bringing it home in fourth place at Kansas and giving her 40 points.

Also having a good race this week is Bernie The Bay Area Bandit.  The Bandit was buckled in securely in the Chip Ganassi Racing number 42 driven by “Young Money”, Kyle Larson.  Young Money paid the Bandit 39 points for all his hard work at Kansas

Rounding out the top five scorers this week is a trio of players who were backing Martin Truex, Jr.  That trio consists of Kathy The Church Forecloser, A&M Aggie Sue, and Zee, aka Sissy.  All three ladies added 33 much-needed points this week.

Only two players, Bernie The Bay Area Bandit and Zee, aka Sissy remained in their previous positions.  There was large scale movement from within, but the number of places moved were very small this week.

The largest movers of the week was a quartet of players, Leon Your Most Humble Sheriff, David The Mudslinging Throttle Jockey, Carole, aka Rudy, and Lonna The Quilt Angel, all moving three places.  Your Most Humble Sheriff, Rudy, and The Quilt Angel all stepped up three (3) spots to sit in 3rd, 13th, and 19th, respectively.  Conversely, The Mudslinging Throttle Jockey slipped down to 6th place.

Moving two places this week is a foursome consisting of Jim, aka Chiefy, Dan The Numbers Cruncher, Carlton The Doorman, and Edie The Las Vegas Super Star Chiefy motored up two places to sit in 5th place.  Unfortunately, The Numbers Dude, The Doorman, and The Las Vegas Super Star all stumbled and fell down two spots to rest now in 7th, 14th, and 21st positions, respectively.

 

Straight From The Crapper

 

 

This week Edie The Las Vegas Super Star was only able to gather up 13 points from her choice, Daniel Suarez.  Those 13 points set he apart from the rest of the players this week and give her the rights to “The Crappiest PIck of The Week” award all by herself.

We finally have a new player in “The Outhouse”!  It took eight races to finally evict The Quilt Angel from her segment long resting place!  It took a wiley and grizzled veteran like Ol Skid-Marc to make a strong run at “The Outhouse”  This is not Ol Skidz first rodeo!  No, he has spent many-a-moon inside the confines of The Outhouse over the years!

With four drivers just eliminated from the Playoffs at Kansas, their dreams have been shattered.

Dream on!

Dream on!

Dream until your dreams come true.

Next week NASCAR will feature the last short track race of the year from the smallest track on the circuit, Martinsville.

Check out the results of the Hollywood Casino 400 at Kansas.

The Kansas Homeboy Has The Votes This Week

Clint Bowyer

This week the NASCAR haulers are making one final trip to the heartland of the US, the Kansas Speedway.  This week is an elimination race and four more drivers will have their dreams destroyed when the checkered flag flies in the Hollywood Casino 400.

 

Our Kansas Choices

 

As you can tell by the accompanying photo, the Kansas farm boy, Clint Bowyer, is the apple of many of the eyes in The Redneck Fantasy League this week.  Is it because he ran really strong last week at Talladega, or is it because he grew up about 110 miles from the Kansas Speedway?  Well, who knows for sure?  Notwithstanding those two questions, he has slightly more than one-fourth of the players on his side this Sunday.  The six players that are all in with Bowyer include Bobby Blue Crush, Linda R. The Lemonade Lefty, Jerry The Buschwacker, Linda B. The Cookie Mom, Ol Skid-Marc, as well as Dan The Numbers Cruncher.

Meanwhile, Kathy The Church Forecloser, A&M Aggie Sue, and Zee, aka Sissy, are solidly supporting the 2017 Cup champion and soon to be minimally unemployed and shortly to be hired by JGR , Martin Truex, Jr. this week. (Was my logic hard to follow in the previous sentence?  The point that I am trying to make is that more than likely Truex and his crew chief will be employed by JGR for 2019)

Next, we have three drivers who have hijacked a pair of players each to play the part of their cheering section for the upcoming race at Kansas.  Snoopy Dawn is teaming up with Leon Your Most Humble Sheriff and they are putting their all into rooting for Kyle Busch at Kansas.

However, Jim, aka Chiefy and Jeremy The Coach see things vastly different this week.  Both are hanging with the young second-generation driver from Dawsonville, GA, Awesome Bill’s kid, Chase Elliott.

Lastly, Karen The Highly Opinionated Southern Belle and Carlton The Doorman are betting the farm that “The Delivernator”, Denny Hamlin, can lead the field to the checkered flag, drive his hot rod to Victory Lane, and hoist the hardware.

As I mentioned in the opening paragraph, this is an elimination race where names are made and dreams are broken–all in the same event!

Good luck to all!

TIL NEXT TIME, PULL YOUR GLOVES UP, FLIP YOUR VISOR DOWN, AND LET’ GO RACIN’!
