Could Truex Hoist The Hardware At His Home Track, Dover?

Martin Truex, Jr.

This week the NASCAR traveling circus rolls into the capital of Delaware, Dover, home to Dover AFB and the East Coast domicile of the C-5B Galaxy.  This weekend all three racing series, CWTS, NXS, and MENCS will be racing there.  The Cup boys will be racing in 49th Annual AAA”400″ Drive For Autism“The Monster Mile”, aka Dover International Speedway.

 

Our Dover Selections

 

As the above photo would suggest Martin Truex, Jr. is the overall choice of The Redneck Fantasy League this week at “The Monster Mile”.  Those players who will be supporting, and rooting, on The 2017 MENCS champion include Snoopy  Dawn, Linda R. The Lemonade Lefty, David The Mudslinging Throttle Jockey, as well as Ol Skid-Marc. All four players would really love to help celebrate a Truex victory at a race track that is the closest NASCAR track to his hometown of Bayetta, NJ.  It could be a really cool “hometown” celebration!

As this segment heads towards its conclusion in just two weeks, the previously mentioned quartet would love to add a huge total to their segment totals and bolster their position within the scoring pylon!

With a trio riding shotgun this week this the third generation driver, and Team Penske young gun, Ryan Blaney, is hoping to drive his hot rod into Victory Lane and hoist the hardware.  The trio carrying Blaney’s water is Jim, aka Chiefy, Carlton The Doorman, and Dan The Numbers Cruncher.  Since all three players are mid-pack in the standings, a great finish by Blaney would be a huge shot in the arms of all three players!

Next, up for discussion, there are three drivers that have a support system of two players each this week.  Alphabetically speaking, the first driver up on the list is “The Delivernator”, Denny Hamlin.  Both Lonna The Quilt Angel and Bobby Blue Crush will be tag-teaming their support for the Joe Gibbs Racing, FedEx No. 11 Camry this week.

Meanwhile, Carlton The Doorman and Jerry The Buschwacker will be focusing all their attention this week on “Mr. Seven-Time”, Jimmie Johnson.  Both are hoping that ol “JJ” can emerge at Dover from the longest losing streak in his NASCAR career.

Finally, Carole, aka Rudy and Don The Engine Builder are throwing all their chip up on the table and hoping that Ryan Newman can lead the field to the checkered flag at Dover.

Adding up the numbers this week, the above-named players total twelve players that have banded with other players in their weekly choices.  That leaves a very large number in The Redneck Fantasy League, ten players in total, who are independent thinkers, and therefore are in bidnez for themselves!

Good luck to all!

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

Kilimanjaro Bobby Retains His Lead After Talladega

Joey Logano

Joey Logano avoided a late, 14-car wreck and held off Kurt Busch on the final lap to win the GEICO 500 on Sunday at Talladega Superspeedway. Nearly a year since his last win at Richmond, Logano had just enough in the Team Penske Ford No. 22 to claim his 19th victory in the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series.

Logano led 70 laps of the 188-lap race en route to his third career victory on the high banks in Alabama. Busch came in second, followed by Chase Elliott, Kevin Harvick, and Ricky Stenhouse Jr. Fords made up six of the top seven finishers, but Logano’s teammate Brad Keselowski wasn’t one of them.

That’s because the “Big One” erupted on Lap 165 when Jimmie Johnson got loose in front of Hendrick Motorsports teammate William Byron. The wreck included the five-time Talladega winner Keselowski, who was knocked out of the race, along with Clint Bowyer, Paul Menard, and others.

 

The Fraternal Order of The Go Fast

 

Two of our players were fortunate enough to be riding shotgun with the GEICO 500 winner this week, Joey Logano.  Both Snoopy Dawn and Carole, aka Rudy, racked up an almost perfect score today, logging the highest scores for the race.  These ladies received a score of 58 points out of a possible 60 for any race!

 

The Movers and Shakers

 

Also fairing well this week is Doug The Gandy Candy Man.   After the checkered flag flew at Talladega, The Mongoose was able to squeeze out 41 points from Ricky Stenhouse, Jr’s 5th place finish in the GEICO 500.

Additionally, there is a huge group, a group of seven players in total, that added 38 points to their first segment totals.  Those seven players include Dan The Numbers CruncherZee, aka SissyBernie The Bay Area BanditBobby Blue CrushLinda B. The Cookie MomEdie The Las Vegas Super Star, as well as Leon Your Most Humble Sheriff.  All seven players had pushed in all of their chips in total support for The Outlaw, aka Kurt Busch.

Meanwhile, Carlton The Doorman was the only player to pick William Clyde Elliott, Jr., better known as Chase this week.  The Doorman gathered 34 points from Elliott’s third-place finish.

Rounding out the list of top five scorers is Kathy The Church Forecloser The Church Forecloser added 32 points to her totals via Kyle Busch’s 13th place finish.

This week there were only three players that remained in their previous places as the Sunset cast itself over the Talladega Superspeedway, Bobby Blue Crush, A&M Aggie Sue, and our resident “Princess of The Poophouse”, Linda R. The Lemonade Lefty!

The three players who moved the most on the leaderboard this week is Snoopy DawnOl Skid-Marc and Jeremy The CoachSnoopy had a very good week because she climbed up the totem pole five places to sit now in 15th place.  Conversely, Skid-Marc and The Coach did not fare so well and plummeted five places to rest now in 16th and 21st places, respectively.

Prior to the Talladega race Carole, aka Rudy, was knocking on the door at “The Outhouse”, however this week she propelled herself up four spots to sit now in 17th place.

Both Jerry The Buschwacker and Dan The Engine Builder slithered down the leaderboard three places to sit in 8th and 20th, respectively.

However, Doug The Gandy Candy Man and Dan The Numbers Dude kept their heads above water and stepped up two places to own 2nd and 13th place, respectively.

Rounding out the top five movers of the week is a group of players that number ten players, nearly half of this fantasy league.  Those ten players moved one position up or down when all the dust settled.

 

Straight From The Crapper

 

This week “The Crappiest Pick of The Week” award is handed out, and shared by two players.  Those two players, Ol Skid-Marc and Jeremy The Coach, each scored just one (1) microscopic point this week.

Lastly, “The Outhouse Award” once again is bestowed upon Linda R. The Lemonade Lefty.  I believe that she has never been observed outside of “The Outhouse” so far this segment!

For the entire duration of the GEICO 500, 188 laps, it would not be a big stretch to think that many of the drivers were thinking, man these guys are nuts!  “I have clowns to the left of me and joker to the right, here I am……stuck in the middle with you”!

Check out the results from the GEICO 500 from Talladega.

Kurt Busch Is The Overwhelming Favorite For Talladega

Kurt Busch

This week the NASCAR circus will be heading South and slightly West from Charlotte to the biggest, badest, widest, high-banked racing facility known as Talladega SuperspeedwayThis race track, as well as Daytona, are really the only two racing facilities that can claim to totally level the playing field.  It is widely believed by those that are knowledgeable that, if you can put your car into “the show”, then you have an equal chance of winning this race.

 

Our Talladega Picks

 

As the accompanying photo would lead you to believe, the darling of Talladega this week is Kurt Busch!  This week nearly one third, seven players in total, are in Kurt’s corner.  Those seven players include Leon Your Most Humble Sheriff, Edie The Las Vegas Super Star, Linda B. The Cookie Mom, Bobby Blue Crush, Bernie The Bay Area Bandit, Zee, aka Sissy, and Dan The Numbers Cruncher.  All of these players are hoping that “The Outlaw” will be able to drive his car not only into the hauler but also into Victory Lane, as well!

Karen The Highly Opinionated Southern Belle, A&M Aggie Sue, and David The Mudslinging Throttle Jockey are all in with their unconditional support for “The Delivernator”, Denny Hamlin.

Meanwhile, Snoopy Dawn and Carole, aka Rudy, are riding shotgun with “Sliced Bread”, Joey Logano, and hoping that he will produce a hefty score for them when the checkered flag flies.

Lastly, Ol Skid-Marc and Jeremy The Coach are steadfastly rooting for the Elk Grove CA, native, “Young Money”, aka Kyle Larson.

This week we have a large group of “individual thinkers”.  Yep, we have eight (8) players who are completely and totally in bidnez for themselves this week!

You know I have been somewhat sentimental when writing this Talladega preview.  I have made three or four Fall Talladega races with Jim, aka Chiefy.  But I remember the first day that we drove onto the Talladega property and I was really awe-struck.  I thought to myself, “Man this is really cool.  I am really gonna watch this race in person”!

Good luck to all!

I hope that your driver can drive his hot rod back into the hauler when the Sun sets on Talladega!  That means that he missed “The Big One”!!

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

Bobby Blue Crush Resumes The Leader Position

Kyle Busch


Kyle Busch motored away on the final restart to win his third straight Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series race of the season, winning in dramatic fashion in a green-white-checkered finish at Richmond Raceway in Saturday’s Toyota Owners 400.

Busch grabbed the 46th win of his Monster Energy Series career, building upon victories at Texas and Bristol. Busch had to come from back in the field, 32nd place, to win, besting Chase Elliott by 0.511 seconds after the final restart. For Elliott, it was his eighth second-place finish.

 

The Fraternal Order of The Go Fast

 

Nobody was onboard with “The Shrub” this week at Richmond, therefore, this weekly award will go back into the vault til next Sunday at Talladega Superspeedway.

 

The Movers and Shakers

 

This week Kilimanjaro Bobby resumes the role as the leader of The Redneck Fantasy League!

The biggest scorers this week is a quintet of players. Those five players include Kathy The Church Forecloser, Linda B. The Cookie Mom, Bobby Blue Crush, Bernie The Bay Area Bandit, as well as Doug The Gandy Candy Man. All five players racked up 53 points from the 4th place finish of Joey Logano.

Additionally, Linda R, The Lemonade Lefty and Carole, aka Rudy, had a fantastic race at Richmond adding 43 points to their 1st segment totals from the 9th place finish of Clint Bowyer.

Meanwhile, Karen The Highly Opinionated Southern Belle secured a nifty 41 points via The Outlaw, aka Kurt Busch, finishing in 11th place in the Toyota Owners 400.

Also having a good race weekend is Jim, aka Chiefy, A&M Aggie Sue, and David The Mudslinging Throttle Jockey. This trio added 39 points to their total score from Chase Elliott’s eighth career 2nd place finish.

Rounding out the top five scorers this week is a quartet of mismatched players. This group consists of Dan The Numbers Cruncher, Lonna The Quilt Angel, Carlton The Doorman, as well as Leon Your Most humble Sheriff. They all added a cool 34 points to their totals from the 3rd place finish of Denny Hamlin.

The single biggest mover of the week is Don The Engine Builder. Ol Cubic Dollars Don went from flying high and being our weekly leader to stumbling and falling four (4) spots to now sit in 5th place.

Five players, Bernie The Bay Area Bandit, Doug The Mongoose, David The Mudslinging Throttle Jockey, Zee, aka Sissy, and Snoopy Dawn, all moved two (2) positions this week. Both The Bay Area Bandit and The Mongoose, climbed up in the standings sitting in 3rd and 4th, respectively. Unfortunately, The Mudslinger, Sissy, and Snoopy all dropped two positions to reside in 6th, 12th, and 20th, respectively.

The following ten players, Bobby Blue Crush, Leon Your Most Humble Sheriff, Karen The Highly Opinionated Southern Belle, Lonna The Quilt Angel, Carlton The Doorman, Ol Skid-Marc, A&M Aggie Sue, Dan The Numbers Cruncher, Kathy The Church Forecloser, and Linda B. The Cookie Mom, all moved just one position this week.

 

Straight From The Crapper

 

This week only one player could muster up just a single digit score. This week “The Crappiest Pick of The Week” award goes to the person who racked up a microscopic 8 points, Zee, aka Sissy.

Stop me if you may heard or read this recently! This week “The Outhouse” award goes to (drum roll please) Linda R. The Lemonade Lefty! Once again she is in sole control!

Next week NASCAR heads down to the deep South, Sweet Home Alabama!

Many Think Logano Can Punch His Ticket At Richmond

Joey Logano

Well, it’s a long way to Richmond rolling North on 95

With a redhead riding shotgun

and a pistol by my side!

This week both the Cup and the Xfinity haulers are rolling North on 95 to Richmond, VA, for racing on Friday and Saturday evenings.  After a weekend at “The Last Great Colosseum”, Bristol, you can bet that there are some bruised egos and some drivers may feel that they were rubbed wrongly, roughed up a bit, there.  So I am predicting that there may be some lost tempers, some egos that may get trampled on, as well as maybe a little crumpled sheet metal this week at Richmond!

 

Our Richmond Selections

 

As the accompanying photo will suggest, this week five of the fantasy league players have banded together in support of Joey Logano.  Those five players are Kathy The Church Forecloser, Linda B. The Cookie Mom, Bobby Blue Crush, Bernie The Bay Area Bandit, as well as Doug The Gandy Candy Man.

Dan The Numbers Cruncher, Lonna The Quilt Angel, Carlton The Doorman, and Leon Your Most Humble Sheriff are all backing Denny Hamlin, who has been rated as most likely the best active short-track racer in the Cup series.

Meanwhile, Jim, aka Chiefy, David The Mudslinging Throttle Jockey, and A&M Aggie Sue are all putting their marbles into the marble sack of Chase Elliott this week.

Linda R. The Lemonade Lefty and Carole, aka Rudy, are hoping that Clint Bowyer can add another victory to his resume this week.

Lastly, Jerry The Buschwacker and Ol Skid-Marc will be rooting loudly for “Blazingly Bad” Brad Keselowski at Richmond.

that leaves six players who are independent thinkers this week.  Or another way to put it, they are in bidnez for themselves!

Good luck to all!

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

Cubic Dollars Don Takes Over The Lead After Bristol

Kyle Busch

Everyone knows Kyle Busch as “Rowdy,” but you could also call him “The Postman,” given that neither rain, snow, sleet nor hail could keep him from completing his appointed rounds at Bristol Motor Speedway.

Executing a textbook bump-and-run against runner-up Kyle Larson on Lap 495 of 500, Kyle Busch pulled away to win Monday’s weather-delayed Food City 500, claiming his second straight victory of 2018 and his seventh win at Thunder Valley, most among active drivers.

In a race delayed by rain after 204 laps on Sunday—then prefaced by sleet on Monday—Busch, the pole winner, claimed the 45th Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series victory of his career, breaking a tie with NASCAR Hall of Famer Bill Elliott for 16th on the all-time win list.

Larson, who led a race-high 200 laps, held the top spot after a restart on Lap 479, following the 13th caution of the race for Brad Keselowski’s contact with the outside wall off Turn 2. Busch charged past eventual fourth-place finisher Ricky Stenhouse Jr. on Lap 485 and took off in pursuit of Larson.

As the drivers worked traffic, Busch got to Larson’s bumper and nudged the No. 42 Chevrolet in Turns 1 and 2. The coup de grace came in Turns 3 and 4, where Busch’s No. 18 Toyota pushed Larson’s Chevy up the track, with Busch diving underneath for the lead.

The final caution was a godsend for Busch, who thought he had a tire going flat and was preparing to pit.

“We weren’t quite as good as the 42 (Larson) on that long run before that last caution came out,” said Busch, who led 117 laps in the two-day affair. “I actually thought I had a tire going down, but we were able to get some tires on it and go give it everything we had.

“We had a 20-lap shootout, and that was everything it was about right there, just chasing down that 42 and being able to get there.”

The final pit stop proved critical because Busch had the superior car after the final restart.

The Fraternal Order of The Go Fast

 

This week we have four players who get to share this prestigious award.  Those four players include Snoopy Dawn, Lonna The Quilt Angel, and both of the  Lindas, ie, The Cookie Mom and Lemonade Lefty.  Each of these ladies racked up a very the weekly high score, a very cool 49 points!

 

The Movers and Shakers

 

This week we had two players who deposited a very much needed 47 points from “Young Money”, Kyle Larson’s, second place finish.  Karen The Highly Opinionated Southern Belle, as well as Carlton The Doorman had a vice tally added to their 1st segment totals at Bristol.  Additionally, it has been reported, and I have reason to believe that this tidbit of info to be factual, The Doorman just turned 81 years old this week!

Happy Birthday, my friend!!!!

Meanwhile, we have an undercover trio, Bernie The Bay Area Bandit, Zee, aka Sissy, and Don The Engine Builder, all were on the Mr. Seven-Time, Jimmie Johnson, bandwagon at Bristol.  Each of these players was rewarded with 46 points from Johnson’s third-place finish.

Ol Skid-Marc had a very good race at Bristol as well.  He was able to rack up 37 points from Clint Bowyer’s eighth-place finish.

Rounding out the top five scorers this week is Leon Your Most Humble SheriffThe Former Air Force Jet Jockey brazenly went out on a limb with Dale Jr’s replacement driver, Alex Bowman at Bristol.  Bowman The Showman had his best Cup finish since buckling into the HMS 88 Nationwide Chevy slipping Your Most Humble Sheriff 36 points.

This week twenty one out of twenty-two players changed positions on the weekly leaderboard!  I will address the lone player who has burrowed into her comfortable place later in this post.

The biggest movers this week is an unlikely female duo of Edie The Las Vegas Super Star and A&M Aggie Sue.  Both of these ladies plummeted six (6) positions after the checkered flag at Bristol, residing in  13th and 15 positions, respectively.

Not to be outdone, Lonna The Quilt Angel, Carlton The Doorman, as well as Jerry The Buschwacker all moved four (4) spots this week.  Both The Quilt Angel and The Doorman climbed up four places to sit now in 7th and 11th, respectively.  Conversely, The Buschwacker, slid down the leaderboard four places to rest in 17th position.

Both Bernie The Bay Area Bandit and Jim, aka Chiefy moved three (3) places.  The Bay Area Bandit climbed up three positions to own the 5th spot, while Chiefy stumbled down to rest in the 9th place.

We have a quintet of players who have moved two (2) positions after Bristol.  Those five players include Karen The Highly Opinionated Southern Belle, Zee, aka Sissy, Ol Skid-Marc, Dan The Numbers Cruncher, Snoopy Dawn, as well as Carol, aka RudyThe Highly Opinionate One, Sissy, Skid-Marc, The Numbers Dude, and Snoopy Dawn, all stepped up two places to position themselves in 8th, 10th, 12th, and 14th spots, respectively.

Wrapping up the top five movers this week is a large gaggle of players, eight in total, who moved one place.  Those players that were fortunate enough to move up one place include our new leader, Cubic Dollars Don, Leon Your Most Humble Sheriff, Jeremy The Coach, and who now resides in 1st, 3rd, 16th, and 20th, respectively.  Conversely, Kilimanjaro Bobby, David The Mudslinging Throttle Jockey, Doug The Mongoose, and Kathy The Church Forecloser are holding down 2nd, 4th, 6th, 19th, respectively.

 

Straight From The Crapper

 

Once again we have two players who will be sharing “The Crappiest Pick of The Week” award.  Both Edie The Las Vegas Super Star and Jerry The Buschwacker were only able to muster up 2 points this week, thereby staking their claim to this prestigious weekly award!

Once again Linda R, Lemonade Lefty is still hold down the fort in “The Outhouse”.  However, this week Rudy made a valiant effort to try to evict the Lemonade Lefty, but failed.

This week NASCAR will leave Tennessee and invade another short track, Richmond Raceway.

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

Kyle Busch Leads The Way Into Bristol

Kyle Busch

This week NASCAR travels North to “The World’s Fastest Half Mile”, “Thunder Valley”, “The Last Colosseum”, aka Bristol Motor Speedway.  For those who are unaware, the town of Bristol is evenly divided between the state of Virginia and Tennessee!  The state line runs right down the middle of Main Street!

 

Our Bristol Picks

 

One-fifth of the Fantasy league, four players in total, are banding together supporting “The Shrub”, aka Kyle Busch.  Those four players backing “Rowdy” at Bristol include Snoopy Dawn, Lonna The Quilt Angel, Linda B. The Cookie Mom, as well as Linda R., better known as Lemonade Lefty.  Is it just me or is there something odd about this group supporting KyBu being all female?  I’m just saying…….  Maybe The Redneck Fantasy League P.I. may have to be re-engaged and put out on assignment again this year for some sleuth work!

This week we have a long list, six drivers in all, that have a cheering section of, two players each.  Alphabetically speaking the first driver to discuss will be Ryan Blaney.  This week Edie The Las Vegas Super Star and  Jerry The Buschwacker, a mismatched pair if there ever was one, are joining forces in hopes that this third-generation race car driver can log his first Cup win for Team Penske in 2018 at Bristol.

However, Bobby Blue Crush and Doug The Gandy Candy Man are thinking very differently.  This two are thinking that “Freaky Fast” Kevin Harvick will return to his 2018 winning ways at “Thunder Valley”.

Mr. Seven-Time, Jimmie Johnson, this week has Zee, aka Sissy and Cubic Dollars Don hoping that he can punch his ticket early in the season to the Playoff Round of 16.

Meanwhile, “Young Money”, aka Kyle Larson, will have Carlton The Doorman and Karen The Highly Opinionated Southern Belle in his corner all weekend.  Both would love to receive The Fraternal Order of The Go Fast award Sunday!

It appears that both Jim, aka Chiefy, and Jeremy The Coach are backing the 2016 NXS champion, Daniel Suarez this week.

Lastly, Kathy The Church Forecloser and Carole, aka Rudy are full throatedly backing Martin Truex, Jr. this week in “Thunder Valley”.

Now that we have moved into the second half of this segment, many of the players that are in the bottom half of the leaderboard are looking at their remaining picks, analyzing their possibilities, and ultimately thinking to themselves that they hope that their remaining choices will not “let them down” and thereby becoming a first segment “also-ran”!

Good luck to all!

TIL NEXT TIME, I AM STILL WORKING ON MY REDNECK!

Bobby Blue Crush Holds A Very Slim Lead After Texas

Kyle Busch

 In a race that saw two of the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series’ elite drivers play chase to the checkered flag, Kyle Busch held off Kevin Harvick to win Sunday’s O’Reilly Auto Parts 500 at Texas Motor Speedway.

Harried by Harvick for 23 laps after a restart on Lap 312 of 334, Busch powered his No. 18 Joe Gibbs Racing Toyota across the finish line .300 seconds ahead of the driver of the No. 4 Stewart-Haas Racing Ford. The key to Busch’s victory was a mistake-free run over the final laps.

“(Harvick was) probably just a tick faster overall, but I just had to make sure to do everything I could to hit all my marks and everything to focus on making sure that I did the right things to block his air a little bit,” Busch said.

Harvick acknowledged that Busch did a good job of protecting the bottom lane and avoiding errors over the closing laps.

The Fraternal Order of The Go Fast

 

This week nobody had Ol Rowdy, The Shrub, aka Kyle Busch, as their choice to win the O’Reilly Auto Parts 500.  Therefore, this weekly award will be put back on the shelf till the checkered flag flies next week at “The Last Colosseum”, Bristol Motor Speedway.

 

The Movers and Shakers

 

This week’s scores are quite amusing.  Ten out of the twenty-two players were only able to add a single digit to their totals this week, resulting in large-scale movement this week!

This week Jim, aka Chiefy, hit the jackpot, was our highest scorer and banked a very cool 47 points for Kurt Busch’s 7th place finish.

Both Zee, aka Sissy and Don The Engine Builder were stowaways into the copilot’s seat of Kevin Harvick’s Busch Light Ford for the 500 miles at Texas.  In return for their vote of confidence, Harvick awarded these two players with 45 points!

Meanwhile, Bernie The Recovering Bay Area Bandit and Leon The Retired Airline Captain, Part-Time Cardiologist, Elephant Driver and Strawberry Picker, as well as Your Most Humble Sheriff each received 33 points for Chase Elliott’s 11th place finish.

Jeremy The Coach rallied this week garnering 27 points.  This was a good week to choose the “Young Gun from HMS”, William Byron.  Byron pulled off his first top ten finish of his rookie season, and The Coach timed it perfectly.

Lemonade Lefty, aka Linda R., rounded out the top five scorers this week.  Lemonade Lefty went deep into the wishing well and selected Trevor Bayne at Texas.  Showing gratitude Bayne rewarded her with a 12th place finish and 25 points.

Because so many, ten players in all did so poorly, the scoring pylon looked as if someone dropped it into a blender, pushed puree and then poured out the results!  Fifteen of the twenty-two players moved up or down on the leaderboard.

The single biggest mover after the checkered flew at Texas is Jim, aka ChiefyChiefy rocketed right up the totem pole seven (7) places to sit in 6th place.

Just behind Ol Chiefy in the scale of movement is Zee, aka Sissy.  Sissy, likewise, stepped up her game this week and launched up six (6) positions to reside in 12th place.

Next up for discussion is a quartet of players that includes Lonna The Quilt Angel, Jerry The Buschwacker, Ol Skid-Marc, as well as Dan The Numbers Cruncher who moved four places.  The Quilt Angel tip-toed positions to rest in 11th place.  Unfortunately, The Buschwacker, Skid-Marc, and The Numbers Dude all plummeted four spots to rest in 13th, 14th, and 16th, respectively.

There were two players who moved three (3) places this week.  The Bay Area Bandit stepped up three spots to sit in 8th place, while The Highly Opinionated One slid down three spots to land in 10th place.

Both Doug The Gandy Candy Dude and Edie The Las Vegas Super Star tripped and fell two (2) place to reside in 5th and 7th, respectively.

 

Straight From The Crapper

 

This week there was lots of fodder from which to decipher through to get to “The Crappiest Pick of The Week”!  I believe that this week we have the largest tie in the history of The Redneck Fantasy League.  We have not had six people do so “Crappy” in one week, and thus have to share this award with so many players!  This week Karen The Highly Opinionated Southern Bell, Snoopy Dawn, Carole, aka Rudy, Doug The Gandy Candy Man, David The Mudslinging Throttle Jockey, as well as Dan The Numbers Dude all scored a microscopic 2 points, and thus are co-winners this week!

Once again, for the six straight week, Lemonade Lefty will remain in sole control of “The Outhouse”.  However, it must be noted that The Cookie Mom is making a run on trying to evict Lemonade Lefty out of her familiar digs!

Next week, NASCAR travels Northeast of Charlotte where they will unload at “The Last Colosseum” in Bristol, TN.  Not only does Bristol Motor Speedway make Tennesse famous but there a couple of companies from that state that are famous as well, like Jim and Jack!

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

Jimmie Johnson Has The Support This Week At Texas

Jimmie Johnson

This week the NASCAR haulers are caravaning down to the Dallas-Ft. Worth metroplex, more accurately, just Northeast of the Alliance Airport to the Texas Motor Speedway for the O’Reilly Auto Parts 500. (Alliance Airport is owned by a poor little guy that you may have heard of, Ross Perot!)

 

Our O’Reilly Auto Parts 500 Choices

 

Leading the way this week is Jimmie JohnsonMr. Seven-Time has six fantasy league players, almost one third of the fantasy league, those six includes Karen The Highly Opinionated Southern Belle, Snoopy Dawn, Carole, aka Rudy, Doug The Gandy Candy Man, David The Mudslinging Throttle Jockey, as well as Dan the Numbers Cruncher all betting the farm that Johnson will erupt from his season-long slump and drive his No. 48 Lowe’s Chevy into Victory lane Sunday.

Kevin Harvick is doing quite well this week in the fantasy league with the support of a very unlikely trio.  The three players rooting got “Freaky Fast” Harvick includes Lonna The Quilt Angel, Zee, aka Sissy, and Don The Engine Builder.  Two out of those three, The Quilt Angel and Sissy could really use some big numbers this week at Texas!

There are three drivers that have a rooting section of two players each.

Still looking for his very first MENCS victory is Chase Elliott.  He has been so very close so many times over the last two years, finishing second, being the bridesmaid more times than he really cares to count.  However, that has deterred Bernie The Bay Area Bandit and Leon Your Most Humble Sheriff from putting all their marbles into the marble sack of Elliott at Texas.

Both Kathy The Church Forecloser and Edie The Las Vegas Super Star are banding together in their support for “Blazingly Bad” Brad Keselowski this week.  Both are hoping that “Bad Brad” can outmaneuver the field and take the checkered flag Sunday.

Lastly, Bobby Blue Crush and A&M Aggie Sue are backing “Young Money”, Kyle Larson, at Texas dearly hoping that Larson will be placing his hot rod in Victory Lane at the end of the afternoon.

Good luck to all!

Bobby Blue Crush Stretches Out His Lead After Martinsville

Clint Bowyer

Clint Bowyer snapped a 190-race losing streak Monday, riding a second-half surge to victory in the STP 500 at Martinsville Speedway.

Bowyer led a race-high 215 of 500 laps in the Stewart-Haas Racing No. 14 Ford, holding a 1.146-second edge at the checkered flag. His first win for SHR was his first on the .526-mile track and the ninth of his Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series career.

Before Monday, Bowyer’s most recent win came Oct. 13, 2012 at Charlotte Motor Speedway.

“Finally to get the 14 in Victory Lane is just a weight off the shoulders,” Bowyer said. “It’s been a long time. You start to question if you can get it done or not. To have it come at this place meant a lot.”

 

The Fraternal Order of The Go Fast

 

This week none of our players had selected Clint Bowyer, a driver who had not a race in 5 1/2 years,  He had lost 190 races in a row.  However, that will not stop the inevitable.  As people close the Bowyer, and know him very well, have stated many times Clint Bowyer has NEVER EVER lost a party!  There is no doubt that, with next week off for Easter, there is going to be one heck of a party back at Clint’s place!

 

The Movers and Shakers

 

The largest scorers this week includes an unlikely quartet of Carlton The Doorman, Bobby Blue Crush, Doug The Mongoose (his racing moniker), as well as David The Mudslinging Throttle Jockey.  All four players were rewarded with a very much needed 50 points from still another second-place finish from Kyle Busch!

Karen The Highly Opinionated Southern Belle ranked second on the weekly scoring pylon.  The Highly Opinionated One was rooting for one of her favorite drivers, “Blazingly Bad” Brad Keselowski.  The 10th place finish by “Blazingly Bad” Brad gave her 43 points.

Meanwhile, there is another quartet that banded together to support “Freaky Fast” Kevin Harvick at Martinsville,  That quartet is comprised of Carole, aka Rudy, Ol Skid-Marc, A&M Aggie Sue, and Dan The Numbers Cruncher.  Harvick’s 5th place finish put 42 points into the scoring buckets of each of those four players.

Also doing very well is a trio consisting of Jim, aka Chiefy, Snoopy Dawn, and Linda R. The Leomande Lefty.  All three of these players were riding with Denny Hamlin and racked up a score of 41 points.

Rounding out the list of top five scorers is Jerry The Buschwacker, who was all in supporting “Sliced Bread”, Joey LoganoThe Buschwacker added 35 much-needed points to his 1st segment tally.

Now that we are half-way through the first segment one would think that this week there would have been another large shake-up in the standings.  However, after a close examination of the stats for this week, the scoring pylon did not display much volatility!

The single biggest mover of the week is Carlton The DoormanThe Doorman rocketed up the leaderboard four (4) places to sit in 14th position this week.

Conversely, Lonna The Quilt Angel did not fair nearly a great at The DoormanThe Quilt Angel plummeted down three (3) places to land in 15th place this week.

The next group to talk about is the duo that encompasses Doug The Gandy Candy Man and Kathy The Church Forecloser.  The Candy Man ascended up the totem pole two (2) spots this week.  However, The Church Forecloser feel down two positions and ends up in 17th place.

Rounding out the top movers, there are seven players, Leon Your Most Humble Sheriff, Edie The Las Vegas Super Star, Ol Skid-Marc, Bernie The Bay Area Bandit, Dan The Numbers Dude, Jim, aka Chiefy, as well as Zee, aka Sissy, who only moved up or down just one place when the checkered flag flew at Martinsville.

 

Straight From The Crapper

 

This week “The Crappiest Pick of The Week” award winner really did not have a bad race.  On any other week Lonna The Quilt Angel’s 18 points would have been a mid-range score.  However, that was not the case at Martinsville this week.

Even though Linda R. The Lemonade Lefty scored a very nice 41 points, it is still not enough for her to get evicted from “The Outhouse” this week!

Since next weekend is Easter, the Cup boys get next week off!

Today Clint Bowyer was able to put to bed a 190 race losing streak!  It wasn’t that Clint Bowyer was a lousy race car driver.  He didn’t forget how to win races.  There is no doubt that Clint Bowyer was fighting all these years of adversity hoping to win races, and all the while he was telling himself man “I’m trying”!

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