The Monster Mile: Who Is Gonna Be Somebody?

Chase Elliott

This week NASCAR rolls into the Mid Atlantic States for the last time in 2018.  As you read this post the haulers will be pulling out of Charlotte, turning north on I-95, and driving to Dover, Delaware for a race at “The Monster Mile”.  Dover is the first race in the Round of 12 for this segment of the Playoffs.

 

Our Dover Choices

 

This week we have a three-way tie in the most popular choice for Dover!  The above photo would lead one to believe that the players have chosen Chase Elliott is the most popular driver this week.  Not totally true.  But the editor/publisher, yours truly, used his prerogative as the photo editor in photo selection this week!!  The complete truth this weekend is that Elliott, Joey Logano, as well as Kevin Harvick all have three players on their side at Dover.  The players who are rooting for Elliott are Kathy The Church Forecloser, A&M Aggie Sue, and Snoopy Dawn.  These three players are truly hoping that Chase can continue to make it to each successive round and is “gonne be somebody”!

Kevin Harvick, on the other hand, has Edie The Las Vegas Super Star, Jerry The Buschwacker, and Zee, aka Sissy, are hoping that he can be “Freaky Fast” “can be somebody” and lead the field to the checkered flag!

All the while Linda R. The Lemonade Lefty, Amber The Extremely Luck Cheddar Head, and Dan The Numbers Cruncher will be hooting and hollering for “Sliced Bread”, aka Joey Logano.  No doubt that these three want “Sliced Bread” to “be somebody”!

Additionally, we have three drivers that have cultivated a rooting section of two players each.  This week Aric Almirola has made some publicity, he is still in the playoffs and he has secured Lonna The Quilt Angel and Bobby Blue Crush in his rooting section, as well as riding in the copilot seat at the Monster Mile.

Meanwhile, Jeremy The Coach and Leon Your Most Humble Sheriff are jumping onboard with the Charlkotte Roval winner’s bandwagon, Ryan Blaney.  Both players could use a shot in their collective arms, reverse their downward slide, and get them back into a money paying position for the 3rd segment!

Finally, Carlton The Doorman and Carole, aka Rudy are rallying behind Mr. Seven-Time, Jimmie Johnson, even though he just raced himself completely out of the Playoffs last week!

One-third of The Redneck Fantasy League, seven players in total, make up the independent thinkers this week. That is a very large contingent of players who are in bidnez for themselves!

Who is gonna be somebody this week?

Good luck to all.

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