This week, racing at Charlotte Motor Speedway, is basically a “home game” for almost all of the race teams, with the exception of Barney Visser’s Furniture Row Racing, who’s home base is Denver, CO. With just six races to go in this segment, and for that matter this season, business is about to pick up! There are just two races left in this, The Contender Round. That can only mean that there are four drivers that find themselves in a desperate place in the standings,l and their future in The Chase is in jeopardy.
Just remember: Desperate people will do desperate things in desperate times!
Our Charlotte Picks
Even though Jeff Gordon did not fair all too well last week at Kansas, he is the majority choice this week at Charlotte. Carole, “Doug The Former Mudslinger and Psychic, Turned Kettle Corn Dude”, “Jeremy The Coach”, and “David The Mudslinging Throttle Jockey” all are feeling very philanthropic this week, and are avid proponents in helping Jeff Gordon, and AARP, meet their end goal of ending world hunger!
This week new daddy, Clint Bowyer, is receiving a little Redneck Fantasy League love! “Karen The Highly Opinionated Southern Belle“, Brandon, and “Jason The Latent Tie Dye Hippie” all have confidence that he, Bowyer, can get the job done at Charlotte.
For those who are keeping track of our two “tail-gun Charlies” who are staging a raging battle for the prestigious “Outhouse Award”, this week there will be change in who is in firm control of that place in the standings! Both Edie and “Carlton The Doorman” are riding high, wide, and handsome with “Sliced Bread”, Joey Logano, this weekend.
Additionally, “Bernie The Bay Area Bandit and Password Queen” and “Jim, aka Chiefy” are truly hoping that their man, Jimmie Johnson, can win this race because it may be the only way that Johnson will be able to move to the next round in The Chase!
Lastly, “Doug, Jr. The Crown Prince Of Kettle Corn” and “Leon The Retired Airline Captain, Current Outhouse Award Holder, and Your Most Humble Sheriff” was seen purchasing a voodoo doll from Miss Fatima down on the corner of Maple and Butler in Fresno. Word on the street is that the voodoo doll is about the only hope that these two players have in helping Kasey Kahne win the race, and thus make it into the next phase of The Chase!
Once again there are a number of players, seven in total, that have individual choices, and as such, they are independent contractors. That is another way of say that this week those seven players are “in bidnez” for themselves!
Good luck to all!
Just a note to self: With Kasey Kahne, Brad Keselowski, Dale, Jr., and Jimmie Johnson now being the bottom four, and in jeopardy of being eliminated from The Chase after Talladega, ol “Mr. Six-Pack”, J.J., may be feeling like kyptonite is all around him these day, and therefore, he may be singing this Five For Fighting tune to himself these days!
TIL NEXT TIME, PULL YOUR GLOVES UP, FLIP YOUR VISOR DOWN, AND LET’S GO RACIN’!
