This weekend the Sprint Cup moves to upstate New York. More specifically, the race track is in the little hamlet known as Watkins Glen, which is located in the finger lakes area about 30 miles to the West of Ithaca, and to the Southeast of Rochester. For some of the beer drinkers in The Redneck Fantasy League this is the area best known for Genesee beer, which is brewed in Rochester! (I might have been known to consume one or two during my days living in NYC!)
Our Watkins Glen Picks
This week one quarter of the players are riding shotgun with just one driver. “Karen The Highly Opinionated Southern Belle”, Dawn, Brandon, Lonna, and “Jason The Latent Tie Dye Hippie” all are going to be getting down with several boxes of either Kellogg’s cereals or Chez-Its, all the while hoping that Carl Edwards can win one more race for his soon to be ex-employer, Roush-Fenway Racing.
Another favorite this week is “Mr. Six-Pack”, Jimmie Johnson, who has three followers, “A&M Aggie Sue”, “Jim, aka Chiefy”, and “Bernie The Bay Area Bandit”.
Both “Doug The Former Mudslinger and Psychic, Turned Kettle Corn Dude”, and Zee are volunteering with Jeff Gordon in “his drive to end hunger”!
Meanwhile, Edie and Doug, Jr. have been seen scouting out parking places at their local Dollar General Store, buying products in support of their pick this week, Matt Kenseth!
Lastly, “Carlton The Doorman” and “Leon The Retired Airline Captain, Former Elelphant Driver, Part-Time Cardiologist and Strawberry Picker, and Your Most Humble Sheriff” have loaded up with cases of 5Hour Energy Drink, trying to stay calm, while rooting for Clint Bowyer.
And as always, the six players not named above have individual picks, and thus, are “in bidnez” for themselves!
With just three races left in segment, time is running out for many to try to make a run at the big second segment money! Additionally, as if nobody needs to be reminded this week, the top five players that are positioned in the money paying positions, which includes our leader, “A&M Aggie Sue”, have a bullseye painted on their backs, and they are “wanted dead or alive”!
TIL NEXT TIME, PULL YOUR GLOVES UP, FLIP YOUR VISOR DOWN, AND LET’S GO RACIN’!
