This week the NASCAR circus caravans into the heartland of America, Kansas City, KS, for the Hollywood Casino 400. After this race, race #4 in the Chase, I believe that there will be an obvious schism displayed delineating the contenders, from the pretenders!
Our Kansas Picks
For the first time in The Redneck Fantasy League history, we have a really even split in player’s choices to win the race. This week we have seven different drivers each having two players in their corner for Sunday! I don’t recall ever having this even split for a NASCAR race.
The 2013 Sprint Cup champ, “Blazingly Bad” Brad Keselowski, has “Dan The Numbers Cruncher” and “Karen The Highly Opinionated Southern Belle” are rolling the dice, and hoping that “Bad Brad” K. will deliver for them a victory.
Meanwhile, the current Chase points leader, Matt Kenseth, will have Dawn and “Leon Your Most Humble Sheriff” pulling for him to log his third Chase race win!
Kenseth’s former team mate, Carl Edwards, has “David The Mudslinging Throttle Jockey” and “Jeremy The Coach” in his corner Sunday.
“Richard The NASCAR Picker” and Carlton will be hanging around the NAPA store, refreshing their car parts inventory, as well as hoping Martin Truex, Jr. can bring home the trophy.
“Jerry The Buschwacker” and “Bernie the Bay Area Bandit”, our current points leader, both appear to shopping insurance companies. In this particular case, they both will be online checking out the Farmer’s Insurance web site, as well as rooting for Kasey Kahne this week.
All the while, “Jim, aka Chiefy” and his better half, Edie, will be hoping the “semi home town boy”, Clint Bowyer, can grab his very first win of the 2013 season.
Lastly, both Carole and Zee will be rooting for TLVW (Kyle Busch), munching on the M&M’s, and as we all know that they (M&M’s) melt in your mouth – not in your hand!
The State of The Standings
As I have alluded to after the race at Dover, there is a portion of the standings, the middle portion in particular, that is oh so very close. There are six players in positions six through eleven that are only separated by thirteen points. Additionally there are three players that ares tied for second place.
Nearer the bottom of the totem pole, there are four players that are vying for positions twelfth through fifteen.
But the tightest race of all is the race for, what apparently is a prestigious place to be, “the Outhouse”! The race between Marc and “David the Mudslinging Throttle Jockey” is only separated by a microscopic one point! Quite possibly we could have a “Governor of The Gas House” when the dust, and smell, settles this Sunday!
Good luck to all this week!
TIL NEXT TIME, PULL YOUR GLOVES UP, FLIP YOUR VISOR DOWN, AND LET;S GO RACIN’!
