Kevin Harvick passed Dale Earnhardt Jr. on the next-to-last lap of the second attempt at a green-white-checkered-flag finish and went on to win Saturday night’s Bojangles’ Southern 500. The win at Darlington was Harvick’s second win in eight races in 2014.
The Movers and Shakers
We have a new name at the top of the totem pole this week! Not only was Carlton the biggest scorer of the week, grabbing 48 points for the Kevin Harvick win, but now he is the new Redneck Fantasy League points leader!
The second biggest score of the week was “A&M Aggie Sue” with a total of 43 points. “A&M Aggie Sue’s” great fortunes comes from the second place finish of Dale Earnhardt, Jr.
Marc puts further distance between himself and “The Outhouse Award” this week by logging 42 points in his total points collection. He can thank ol “Six-Pack”, Jimmie Johnson for a good race!
Matt Kenseth was very kind to both “David The Mudslinging Throttle Jockey”,as well as “Dan The Numbers Cruncher”, giving them a cool 41 points each at Darlington.
Rounding out the top five scorers this week is Edie, “Jim, aka Chiefy”, and “Karen The Highly Opinionated Southern Belle” who all put 38 points up on the board this week.
There were two players who share the spotlight as the biggest movers of the week. Carlton climbed up four (4) spots this week to perch himself atop of the standings. Conversely, “Jason The Latent Tie Dye Hippie”, dropped like a hot potato an equal amount, four (4) spots to in 8th place this week.
There were two players who climbed up two positions this week, “A&M Aggie Sue” and “David The Mudslinging Throttle Jockey”, landing respectively in 9th and 10th place.
On the negative side, Dawn, “Bernie The Bay Area Bandit”, and Carole, each slid two spots in the standings, landing in 3rd, 11th, and 12th place, respectively.
Straight From The Crapper
This week one of “the Hammack clan” successfully snagged the “crappiest pick of the week” award. “Jason The Latent Tie Dye Hippie” picked Kasey Kahne and was rewarded a score in the dingle digits, 8 crappy points!
For the second week in a row we have a new “Guardian of The Gashouse”! It seems that “The Numbers Dude” cooked the numbers, grabbed a cool 41 points, rocketed himself all the way to 15th place, and transferred occupancy of “the Throne” to his second favorite uncle “Jerry The Buschwacker”!
Next week NASCAR moves to the short track that thinks it is a superspeedway, the Henrico County Fairgrounds, better known as Richmond International Raceway.
“Well it’s a long way to Richmond rolling North on 95, with a redhead riding shotgun, and pistol by my side”.
TIL NEXT TIME, PULL YOUR GLOVES UP, FLIP YOUR VISOR DOWN, AND LET’S GO RACIN’!
