This weekend is the official start of the ten race Chase. Matt Kenseth starts out as the points leader by virtue of his five wins during the regular season. However, that could all change once the checkered flag falls at Chicagoland Sunday!
Our Chicagoland Picks
This week the driver with the biggest following, and the player’s choice to win the race, is a non-Chase participant! Now that The Chase has started this driver is what I call a pretender, However, you may know him as “Blazingly Bad” Brad Keselowski. There are four players, Dawn, “A&M Aggie Sue”, “Richard The NASCAR Picker”, and “Leon The Humble Sheriff”, who are riding with the driver of the Miller Lite beer wagon!
Additionally, there are three drivers that have two players rooting for them. “Jerry The Buschwacker” and “Jeremy The Coach” will be hanging by the Clydesdales and the Budweiser keg hoping that their driver, Kevin Harvick, pulls a victory out to start off the Chase with a bang!
Both Edie and “Bernie The Bay Area Bandit” are wanting their man, Jimmie Johnson, who drives the Lowe’s#48 Chevy, to create a little magic and break the bad luck streak that he has been riding on for the last three weeks.
Lastly, Carole and “Dan the Numbers Cruncher”, most likely, will be seen at the parking lot of their local NAPA auto parts store, securing a little “NAPA know how”, and quite possibly a win with Martin Truex, Jr.
Good luck to all!
Twelve drivers, ten races, one championship, who will be the last man standing?
