The “Blue Deuce”, however, today it was the red deuce, was the dominate race car at New Hampshire Motor Speedway. “Blazingly Bad” Brad Keselowski led a race high of 138 of the 304 laps in the Camping World RV Sales 301 (the race went into a green-white-checkered overtime).
Movers and Shakers
This week was a watershed weekend for the standings! “Jeremy the Coach” finally had a bad race, scoring a microscopic two (2) points with his selection of Jimmie Johnson, and plummeted out of the top spot!
The new point person this week, scoring 37 points, thanks to Tony Stewart’s emergence from his extremely long hibernation, is “Bernie the Bay Area Bandit”!
With just five races left in this segment, and having the next weekend off, it appears that Carole is making a huge push to get herself into a money paying position before the Bristol race concludes! She was the only player who had the foresight to pick “Blazingly Bad” Brad Keselowski as her winner, grabbing 48 points at Louden this week.
Both Zee and “Doug The Former Mudslinger and Psychic, Turned Kettle Corn Dude” were the second highest scorers for this weekend. “The Las Vegas Weasel” (TLVW) ,ol Kylie Busch, could not run down “Blazingly Bad” Brad and had to settle for second place, giving these two players 43 points for the race.
Also having a good weekend was “Jerry The Buschwacker”. He had put all his marbles in bag of Matt Kenseth, and for that he gathered up 41 points.
Likewise, “A&M Aggie Sue”, with her choice of Clint Bowyer faired very well, logging 39 points for the race.
Rounding out the top five scorers are Lonna and “Bernie The Bay Area Bandit”, each lady accumulated 37 points on the back of “Smoke’s” seventh place finish.
After the race at Louden there was not a single player who was able to keep his/her place in the standings!
There were two players who dropped like a bad habit in the standings, this week! Both Edie and “Carlton The Doorman” plummeted eight (8) places this week.
Following suit, “Leon The Retired Airline Captain, Part-time Cardiologist and Cotton Picker, Former Elephant Driver, and Your Most Humble Sheriff” is staging one heck of a run towards “The Outhouse”, advancing rearward with great speed, and bypassing seven players! Additionally, our former leader, too, had a rotten race! As I mentioned earlier, “Jeremy The Coach” only received 2 points, thereby tumbling seven (7) places in the standings, as well.
Concluding the negative movement list, “Jim, aka Chiefy”, Doug, Jr., and “David The Mudslinging Throttle Jockey” all slipped down two places on the totem pole.
The award for greatest upward movement by a player this week goes to “Jerry The Buschwacker”! “The Buschwacker” climbed up six (6) places this week.
Zee, “Dan the Numbers Cruncher”, and “Jason The Latent Tie Dye Hippie”, all stepped up five (5) places this week.
Carole, “A&M Aggie Sue”, “Doug The Former Mudslinger and Psychic, Turned Kettle Corn Dude”, Lonna, Dawn, and Brandon, all moved up two (2) spots in the standings this week.
Lastly, Marc, “Bernie The Bay Area Bandit”, and “Karen The Highly Opinionated Southern Belle” each slipped up one spot.
Straight From The Crapper
There is a four-way tie for this week’s “crappiest pick of the week” title. “Jeremy The Coach”, Edie, “Carlton The Doorman”, and yours truly, “Leon Your Most Humble Sheriff”, all appeared to be reading braille when selecting their winner for the Louden race! This somewhat odd quartet of players all were awarded with a very myopically small score of just two (2) points!
And finally the last nugget of news from The Redneck Fantasy League!
We have a new person that is controlling the “executive washroom”! Edie has extricated “Karen The Highly Opinionted Southern Belle” from control of the throne.
With just five races left in this segment, Edie is the new “Princess of The Poophouse”!
With next week off, the Sprint Cup teams can take a rest from their hectic schedule of “traveling at eight miles a minute for months at a time”!
TIL NEXT TIME, PULL YOUR GLOVES UP, FLIP YOUR VISOR DOWN, AND LET’S GO RACIN’!
