Matt Kenseth captured his fourth victory of the 2013 season, by winning the Quaker State 400 the Kentucky Speedway.
Movers and Shakers
Carole, Marc, Jerry, and Karen, all picked the winner at Kentucky, Matt Kenseth. And for their efforts, they each scored 47 points. Dawn and Zee chose ol Kylie Busch to win the race, nevertheless, KyBu’s 5th place finish supplied Zee and Dawn 39 points.
Edie’s choice of Kevin Harvick produced, for her, 34 points.
Additionally, “Jason The Latent Tie Dyed Hippie” and “Dan The Numbers Cruncher” scored 33 points with Kasey Kahne’s 11th place finish.
Once again this week, there was large scale movement. The single biggest mover was Karen. With her pick of the race winner, Matt Kenseth, and grabbing 47 points, she rocketed seven positions in the standings! Both Jeremy and Carlton had significant movement from their previous week’s position, each climbing up five spots in the standings.
Likewise, Zee has started to make a run for the top, now moving up four places in the standings.
Even though Marc only moved up three spots this week, that movement was plenty enough to put him now at the top of the totem pole for the first time this year!
On the opposite side of the movement scale, “Leon The Humble Sheriff” plummeted six places, falling out of the money precipitously! Both “Richard The NASCAR Picker”, Jim, and “Jeremy The Coach” had a bad week falling five spots after the Quaker State 400. Closely following the previously mentioned duo’s catastrophic plunge is “Bernie The Bay Area Bandit”. Bernie dropped four critical spots.
Straight From The Crapper
This week we need to highlight the three players that had the crappiest picks of the week. Both Jim and “Leon The Humble Sheriff” completely embarrassed themselves with the 11 points that they received from “Blazingly Bad” Brad Keselowski at the Quaker State 400.
However, the stinkiest, and crappiest pick of the weekend comes from “Jeremy The Coach”. Jeremy had the total misfortunes to have selected Denny Hamlin, who finished 35th, after being involved in an accident.
This week NASCAR returns to Daytona for the Pepsi 400, a Saturday night race.
Good luck to all!
