Thanks to a brief but wild Kansas spring storm, and the long delay it produced, Jimmie Johnson on Saturday night PDT/Sunday morning EDT became the first Sprint Cup driver to win a race on Mother’s Day since 2007!
Johnson, who is pursuing a record-tying seventh NASCAR Sprint Cup Series championship this season, held off Kevin Harvick over the final six laps to win Sunday morning’s SpongeBob SquarePants 400 at Kansas Speedway.
Movers and Shakers
There was only one player who had the foresight, and also keep their Jimmie Johnson pick until Kansas. Zee was the lucky player this week who grabbed the highest score, 47 points!
Once again Edie had a marvelous race. This week she also kept her Harvick pick close to her vest, and played it for the SpongeBob SquarePants 400!
Unlike most of the players in The Redneck Fantasy League who use their Dale Jr. pick at either Daytona or Talladega, Marc used his JUNIOR pick wisely at Kansas. That Dale Jr. pick brought Marc 41 crucial points.
Logging in fourth on the weekly highest scorers list are Jerry The Buschwacker, Brandon, and Jason The Latent Tie Dye Hippie, all adding 39 points to their tally sheet!
Rounding out the week’s top five scorers is David The Mudslinging Throttle Jockey with a cool 39 points!
There were only four players that had any significant movement this week. The single biggest mover was Dawn. Those microscopic three points this week really made Dawn drop in the standings like an extremely bad habit! This week she fell seven (7) spots to land in 11th place!
Likewise, Doug The Former Mudslinger and Pyschic, Turned Kettle Corn Dude plummeted five (5) places, now residing in 13th spot!
The two other significant movers were Jerry The Buschwacker and Edie, edging up just two (2) spots after Kansas.
While Jeremy The Coach, Karen The Highly Opinionated Southern Belle with A Broken Left Foot, Doug, Jr. The Crowned Prince of Kettle Corn, Linda The Cookie Mom, and David The Mudslinging Throttle Jockey and USAC Official all remained in the previous spots. The rest of the players not previously mentioned moved up or down one or two spots this week.
Straight From The Crapper
This week it was easy to pick the player with the crappiest pick of the week. That is not to say that there was not competition for this award at all. Quite to the contrary, Doug The Former Mudslinger and Psychic, Turned Kettle Corn Dude was out of the throttle and up on the K-rail in the closing segment of the race. However, Dawn crashed and burned with Denny Hamlin, and only scored 3 tiny points! Thus, it is with great pleasure that I give you Dawn as the crappiest pick of week number 11!
Now with just one week left in this segment one of our rookies, Cole The Natural resumes his position as “Prince of The Poophouse”, the sole controller of The Outhouse! Looking at the picks for our next race, Charlotte, and those that are close to Cole in the standings, it appears that Cole will not be able to extricate himself from being The Ogre of The Outhouse. Therefore, my projection is that we will have our youngest ever winner of that most prestigious Outhouse Award, Cole The Natural!
So with just one race left in segment, and there is some really tight races going on within the standings, there are some players that are just living on a prayer!
Next week NASCAR will have the Camping World Truck race, as well as the All-Star race. So in essence we get a week off before we have our final race of the segment!
Good luck to all!
TIL NEXT TIME, PULL YOUR GLOVES UP, FLIP YOUR VISOR DOWN, AND LET’S GO RACIN”!
