Dale Earnhardt Jr. was in position to pounce on Sunday, and pounce he did! By grabbing his second win of the season Junior has certainly punched his ticket to the Chase for the NASCAR Sprint Cup!
And as the prevailing feeling around NASCAR goes; “What is good for Junior is good for NASCAR”! Well once again, just like after the Daytona 500, all is well in NASCAR, Dale Earnhardt, Jr. has won another race!
With the Dale Jr.victory today at Pocono, “Jeremy The Coach” has been propelled into the lead by “the hair on his chinny, chin, chin”! (I used that analogyt because I can’t say by the hair on his head, he is challenged in that department!)
With just two races into the segment, the point spread between everyone throughout the standings is very tight with the exception of “Jason The Latent Tie Dye Hippie”! I will amplify later in the post!
Movers and Shakers
As I mentioned in the opening paragraph of this post, there is a new leader sitting on top of the ol totem pole this week. “Jeremy The Coach” has wedged himself into a one point lead with a great outing from Dale Earnhardt, Jr. Junior’s win not only gave “The Coach” 47 points this week, but “Doug The Former Mudslinger, Psychic, and now Kettle Corn Dude” also grabbed 47 points.
Marc faired very well this week as well, scoring a cool 44 points with “Blazing Bad” Brad Keselowski’s second place finish.
Coming in third this week on the scoreboard, via a Denny Hamlin fourth place finish, is both Doug, Jr. and “David The Mudslinging Throttle Jockey”, gathering in 41 points for the week.
There was a gaggle, six players in total, that grabbed 37 points at Pocono. Carole, Dawn, “Jerry the Buschwacker”, “Jim, aka Chiefy”, Brandon, and Lonna all were rooting for Jeff Gordon this week.
Rounding out the top five scorers this week are “Dan the Numbers Cruncher”, and yours truly, “Leon Your Most Humble Sheriff” logging a cool 32 points.
Even though the scoring results were fairly close, it did not preclude a wide range of movement this week throughout the entire spectrum of the standings!
Even though “Karen The Highly Opinionated Southern Belle” grabbed a mediocre 19 points, that score plummeted her ten (10) places this week, landing her at the front door of “The Outhouse”, solidly in 19th place!
“Jim, aka, Chiefy”, “Bernie The Bay Area Bandit”, and “A&M Aggie Sue” all dropped four (4) places this week landing in 8th, 10th, and 17th, respectively.
“Jason The Latent Tie Dye Hippie”, with his microscopic 4 points (more on that in this post), fell three (3) places securing his new position as “Governor of The Gashouse”
Lastly, both Lonna and Edie dropped two (2) places this week.
On the positive side of the house, “Doug The Former Mudslinger, Turned Psychic, And Kettle Corn Dude” rocketed up the ladder seven (7) places resting in seventh position.
“Jeremy The Coach”, Carole, and Marc, all climbed four (4) spots on the totem pole this week, while Doug, Jr. slithered up three positions.
Straight From The Crapper
The focus of this section of the post revolves around just one person, “Jason The Latent Tie Dye Hippie”! This week not only do we have a new contender for prestigious “The Outhouse Award”, but that same person wins, hands down, “the crappiest pick of the week” award! Yes, we are talking about one and the same person, “Jason The Tie Dye Dude”! “The Almost Jerry Garcia Look-Alike” finished the day with a paltry 4 points for the race! He now sits squarely on “the throne”!
Next week the show moves to the backyard of the American auto industry, Brooklyn, MI, the Michigan International Speedway!
TIL NEXT TIME, PULLL YOUR GLOVES UP, FLIP YOUR VISOR DOWN, AND LET’S GO RACIN”!
