Kevin Harvick finally came to the Chase party in 2013. Harvick dominated the Hollywood Casino 400 in Kansas Sunday. The RCR driver led 138 laps of the 267 laps, secured his first win in the Chase fro him, and ultimately moved up one place in the Chase, landing in third place.
Movers and Shakers
This week nobody picked Kevin Harvick to win the race, therefore nobody scored maximum points.
However, Marc did have Joey Logano as his pick, and that gave him a total of 41 points for the Hollywood Casino 400.
There was a lucky pair of players where the second highest scorers Sunday. “Jeremy the Coach” and our nearly permanent resident “Governor of The Gas House” “David The Mudslinging Throttle Jockey” both racked up the second largest scores of the group. Each gathered up 39 points from Carl Edwards’ fifth place finish.
Dawn and “Leon Your Most Humble Sheriff” each pocketed a nice 34 point day for Matt Kenseth’s eleventh place finish.
“Jason The Latent Tie Dye Hippie” was all by himself this week in his pick, and was “sticking with The Biff”! Nevertheless, ol Jason was the third highest scorer, and was rewarded with 31 points.
Edie and “Jim, aka Chiefy” took home 30 points from their choice of Clint “I didn’t spin out this week” Bowyer.
“Bernie The Bay Area Bandit” and “Jerry The Buschwacker” grabbed up 29 points from Kasey Kahne’s 15th place finish.
“Karen The Highly Opinionated Southern Belle” and “Dan the Numbers Cruncher” round out the list of players that had a good Sunday, scoring 28 points via “Blazingly Bad” Brad Keselowski.
This week the movement was minimal, that is to say that there were not any big swings in positions. Nevertheless, there were small slips and slides on the totem pole! The three players who moved the most were, Zee, Carole, and Marc. Marc moved up three places, escaping from “the Outhouse” this week.
On the contrary, both Zee and Carole fell the most spots, three. Since Marc gave up his title as “Governor of The Gas House, that means that we have a new looser. Zee has taken over as “The Princess of The Poop House” this week!
“A&M Aggie Sue” dropped two spots, meanwhile, Dawn, “Jim, aka Chiefy”, “Jeremy The Coach”, and “David the Mudslinging Throttle Jockey” all climbed up just two spots this week.
Straight From The Crapper
This week there was a tie for “the crappiest picks of the week” award. Both Carole and Zee were caught with their hand in the M&M’s cookie jar! Because ol Kylie Busch (TLVW) crashed out of the race, both of these ladies were only able to get 11 points for the race!
In light of Zee’s “crappy pick” of TLVW this week, that single incident enabled her to go straight to “the Outhouse”, do not pass go, and do not collect $200!
Half Way Home
We are now half way through this, the last segment of the year.
Thirteen drivers, six races, one championship, who will be the last man standing?
