After having the Father’s day weekend off, the NASCAR haulers are taking the long haul back out West to the heart of “Wine Country”, Sonoma Raceway. This is the first of two road course races during this stretch of summer.
Our Sonoma Choices
Many of our fantasy league players have very good memories. They remember that “Freaky Fast” Harvick was able to get to the front late in the race, leads the pack to the checkered flag, drink the Napa wine, hoist the trophy, and more importantly, cash the big check at the end of the day last year!
Siding with, and rooting for, Harvick this week are six players, slightly more than one-quarter of the fantasy league, include Karen The Highly Opinionated Southern Belle,Jerry The Buschwacker, Bobby Blue Crush, Edie The Las Vegas Super Star, Bernie The Bay Area Bandit, as well Amber The Cheddar Head. As the title indicates, these players believe that “The Closer” can go back to back at Sonoma!
Carole, aka Rudy, A&M Aggie Sue, Zee, aka Sissy, and Ol Skid-Marc are all in Kyle Busch’s corner this weekend. These four players are hoping and wishing that “Rowdy” will drive his Joe Gibbs Racing Toyota into the Winner’s Circle Sunday afternoon.
Additionally, Snoopy Dawn, David The Mudslinging Throttle Jockey, as well as Lonna The Quilt Angel think that the elder Busch, Kurt, will drive his SHR Ford into Victory Lane, drink the wine, and hoist the trophy.
Lastly, Doug The Gandy Candy Man and Leon Your Most Humble Sheriff are banding together thinking that Denny Hamlin can get his JGR Toyota to the front of the pack and be the first car to the checkered flag Sunday evening.
For those keeping score this week we have enumerated fifteen players and their choices. That leaves six players that have become independent thinkers this week. That is right, they have become in bidnez for themselves!
