This week NASCAR makes its last visit to the Lone Star State. The fall race in Texas caries a lot more weight and drama in relation to the 2017 championships.
Our Texas Selections
The choices that our players have this week at the Texas Motor Speedway are almost evenly distributed over six different drivers. The one exception is Jimmie Johnson. Mr Seven-Time has three supporters, Doug The Gandy Candy Man, Snoopy Dawn and Leon Your Most Humble Sheriff, all are hoping that he (Johnson) can punch his ticket to Homestead with a victory at Fort Worth.
There are five drivers this week that have two rooters firmly in their corner. The first driver, alphabetically, to talk about is Ryan Blaney. Backing Blaney this week is a the sneaky duo of Jerry The Buschwacker and A&M Aggie Sue.
Carole, aka Rudy and Linda The Cookie Mom are banking heavily upon the ability of Clint Bowyer to engage in the roll of the race spoiler this week. If Bowyer were to drive his hot rod into Victory Lane at Texas that would throw the race to Homestead into a quagmire and put a few drivers into hospice care!
Riding with driver formally known as “The Outlaw”, Kurt Busch, this week is Jim, aka Chiefy and Cole The Redneck Understudy.
Both Karen The Highly Opinionated Southern Belle and Zee, aka Sissy are riding shotgun with “The Shrub”, aka Kyle Busch.
Lastly, both Edie The Las Vegas Super Star and Jeremy The Coach are betting the farm that “Blazingly Bad” Brad Keselowski can drive his machine into Victory Lane and punch his ticket through to Homestead.
All thirteen of these players are hoping that they can sit atop the list of top scorers this Sunday. If Johnson, KyBu, “Blazingly Bad” Brad or Blaney win at Texas they will punch their ticket to Homestead. Additionally, the players who have picked the winner will, most likely, leap frog up on the leaderboard. If that happens then both groups will be realizing some of “their dreams”!
Just an FYI, we have a large group of independent thinkers, eight players in total. This may be the largest group of players that are in bidnez for themselves this year!
With just three races left in this segment the leaderboard reflects a few tightly grouped pockets of players that could move and leap frog others on the ol scoring pylon when the checkered flag flies at Homestead.
Good luck to all!
TIL NEXT TIME, PULL YOUR GLOVES UP, FLIP YOUR VISOR DOWN, AND LET’S GO RACIN’!
