“Blazingly Bad” Brad Keselowski won his second Chase race out of three. Keselowski took the lead when the two driver in front of him, Joe Gibbs Racing teammates Kyle Busch and Denny Hamlin, had to pit for fuel with 10 laps to go and went on to win the AAA 400 Sprint Cup race at Dover International Speedway. Once again, the AAA 400 from Dover International Speedway, illustrated that the fastest, or the most dominate race, car did not emerge as the race winner.
The Movers and Shakers
Carolyn was able to maintain a very slim lead, one point, after the AAA 400 at Dover Sunday.
For the main, most all of the players had a relatively good scoring weekend. However, there were three players who suffered magnificently! The largest movement in the standings was Edie. Edie had the misfortunes of having Matt Kenseth as her choice for the AAA 400. For that she was rewarded a mere 9 points. And because Edie was hanging out in fifth place before the race, those miniscule 9 points plummeted here eight (8) places, landing her into 13th place!
The next largest shuffle in the standings happened to Bernie. Her choice of Ryan Newman garnered her 23 points for Sunday. But because of her third place position prior to the race, those 29 points dropped her seven (7) places, like a bad habit, resting her now in tenth place.
Still one more mega-mover Sunday was yours truly, Leon. I, too, had a bad day at the track with Matt Kenseth for the the AAA 400. Those skimpy 9 points that I earned, rocketed me down the standings five (5) place putting me in 16th place! I coming for you David!!
There were four players, Carolyn, Jim, Carole, and of course, David, that retained their previous positions after Sunday’s race. With the exception of the four that did not move, and the three players previously mentioned that fell in the standings like a ton of streamlined crap, the remaining eleven players all moved positively one or two places.
Looking at the standings, it is not surprising that there are many very close battles, up and down the standings.
Next week NASCAR, Jim and yours truly, all will roll down to the deep south, Talladega I can’t wait to get into my seat high up in the OV Hill Tower, just past the tri-oval, and just prior to the start-finish line, watch Dale Earnhardt, Jr. pull off one of his storied plate victories! GO #88!
After all, this is not just another race track, THIS IS TALLADEGA!
Good luck to all!
TIL THEN, PULL YOUR GLOVES UP, FLIP YOUR VISOR DOWN, AND LET’S GO RACIN’!
I don’t know about you, but in the distance I can hear Lynard Skynard warming up with a little “Sweet Home Alabama”!
