With just three races left this year for NASCAR, the road warriors are hauling the cars to Fort Worth, Texas, this week, more specifically it is the Bruton Smith owned Texas Motor Speedway. This high banked, high speed, race track will be a major challenge for the bottom four trying to grab one of the top fours places in The Eliminator segment that would catapult them into the final four that would allow them to race for the championship at Homestead.
Our Texas Picks
Obviously you can guess, by the picture that accompanies this post, that Greg Biffle must be The Redneck Fantasy League favorite this week. Well, that is a partially correct statement! This week there are three players who are “sticking with The Biff”, Brandon, “Doug, Jr. The Crowned Prince of Kettle Corn”, and “Leon The Current Outhouse Award Recipient, and Your Most Humble Sheriff” are banking that The Biff grabs a last season victory!
Additionally, there are three players, Dawn, “Carlton The Doorman”, and “Bernie The Bay Area Bandit and Password Queen” that have ordered up a few kegs of Bud to go with their nachos and other snacks, while they watch Kevin Harvick at the AAA Texas 500 Sunday.
Speaking about beer-wagons, this week Zee and “Jeremy The Coach” were observed loading up their cars with some hops and barley of their own, Miller LIte! There was an argumentative conversation that was over heard by the omniscient Redneck Fantasy League P.I., who if the truth be known, was also loading up his van with some weekend libation. The argument that was overheard between two players went something like this, “less filling, no tastes great!”
With Halloween being this weekend, it was also noticed that both “Jerry The Buschwacker” and Marc were seen with a huge grocery cart stuffed to the brim with bags of M&M’s! Was that a coincidence or are they really backing Kyle Busch this weekend at Texas????
Carole and “David The Mudslinging Throttle Jockey” are really hoping that Tony Stewart can keep his 15 year streak alive of winning at least one race per year! That streak is in serious jeopardy!
It was also observed this week that both “Jim, aka Chiefy” and “Doug The Former Mudslinger and Psychic, Turned Kettle Corn Dude” were conferring with Gene Haas, the owner of Kurt Busch’s #41 Haas Automation Chevy. Do you think that both of them were trying to get some of Haas’ brilliant tax deferring strategies? Hmmmmmmmm….
Lastly, “Dan The Numbers Dude” and “Jason The Latent Tie Dye Hippie” are rooting for, possibly the favorite to win the championship, Joey Logano, this Sunday.
For the remaining four players, they are all “in bidnez” for themselves this week.
A NOTE TO SELF: Since Edwards, Harvick and Keselowski are at the bottom of The Eliminator standings, and outside the cutoff to transfer to the championship segment by more than 20 points, to get into the “final four”, they will need a little help from their friends!
TI NEXT WEEK, PULL YOUR GLOVES UP, FLIP YOUR VISOR DOWN, AND LET’S GO RACIN’!
