The top six in our fantasy league standings remained unchanged after the race at Martinsville. However, the differences from positions one through six got a little tighter. Each of the the five players who are chasing Edie in the standings picked up just a few points each on her after the race concluded at Martinsville.
Although none of us picked Ryan Newman to win at Martinsville, Jerry did pick Dale Earnhardt, Jr. Throughout the entire race, Dale, Jr. was positioned in the top five, led some laps, and was in a position to win in the closing stages of The Goody’s Fast Relief 500. For his selection of Junior, Jerry received the most points, and was rewarded with the high score of the race, 43 points. The 43 points kept Jerry in third place by the narrow margin, just 4 points.
Receiving the second highest amount of points for this race was Marc. He selected “Blazingly Bad” Brad Keselowsi as his choice and scored 41 big points for his efforts. That great pick allowed Marc to keep his fourth place secure by 10 points ahead of yours truly.
Jeremy had a very good Sunday, however, not as good as it was looking with just two laps to go!l. He picked Jeff Gordon as the winner of the race. Gordon was the dominate car all day, leading a cool 322 laps Sunday afternoon! However, Clint Bowyer had a shot at the inside lane on the first green-white-checker restart. Bowyer’s bonsai move almost took him into the lead. Instead, He was testing the theory that 12 wheels are better than 4 wheels when cornering. After further review. that theory needs a little more testing to get it right! The net results was that Bowyer took out Jeff Gordon, Jimmie Johnson, and himself, as well!
Next week is Easter and NASCAR takes the week off.
This marks the halfway point in segment one. This serves a reminder that you all need to be getting your second segment picks in some semblance of order!
TIL NEXT TIME, PULL YOUR GLOVES UP, FLIP YOUR VISOR DOWN, AND LET’S GO RACIN’!
For some of the players who are languishing at the bottom of the heap, here is a video just for you!
