Jimmie Johnson

Just in case anyone thought that the Hendrick Motorsports #48 Lowe’s Chevy was down and out, perish the thought!  Johnson has now won three of the last four races, the All-Star race included.  His HMS teammate, Kasey Kahne won the other race that Johnson did not!

With the results of the FedEx 400 Benefiting Autism Speaks now tabulated, it has given the players a wide array of scores, ranging from the maximum points of 48 for the race winner, to a lowly score of 7!

We have two winners!

Today two players jumped out to big league having picked the winner of the race.  The two lucky players who had Jimmie Johnson for their picks were Jason and Dawn.  For their endeavors they were rewarded maximum points for the day, 48 big ones!  So after the first race in segment #2, we have two new people tied at the head of the list.  Just six points behind our co-leaders, Jason and Dawn, are rookie Dan and first segment winner Jerry, each receiving 42 points for their choice of Kenseth at Dover.  Just one point behind the previous duo are Zee and Marc, checking in with 41 points, courtesy of Dale Earnhardt, Jr.  Next in the standings, also in a tie wit 37 points, are Edie and Jeremy.  Both of these players selected Martin Truex, Jr. as their Dover choice.

And we also have the tail-gunner…..

Let me preface my announcement with a quote from David’s Facebook post this afternoon:

“Had a horrible nightmare that I was leading at my favorite track Placerville Speedway and let it slip away at the end…oh wait that really happened!!!”

This great sense of humor comes from our mud slinging, hard charging, midget driver, David, regarding his performance last night at Placerville.  According to David, he led the race for about 16 laps, and then lost the lead with about 3 laps to go in the race.  That had to be hard to swallow!  Better luck on your next race at Victorville!

So once again, David rockets into the basement with his choice of Scott Riggs, and a huge 7 points today!

Next week NASCAR  travels to “the tricky triangle” of Pocono.

TIL THEN, PULL YOUR GLOVES TIGHT, FLIP YOUR VISOR DOWN, AND LET’S GO RACIN’!
