Even though Summer has come and gone, Fall is here and the weather is suppose to cool down. However, the thermometer in NASCAR is moving in just the opposite direction! This three race segment in The Contender Round has set a fire underneath several drivers in their quest to move on to The Eliminator Round!
Our Kansas Picks
It seems like the majority of the players have jumped onboard the Joe Gibbs Racing bandwagon this week! More than one third of the players have decided to vote/root for three of the four drivers in the JGR stable!
Leading the vote in Kansas is one of the hottest drivers of the summer months, Matt Kenseth. This week Carlton The Doorman, Lonna The Quilt Angel, Jim, aka Chiefy, and Cole The On Demand Baseball Player have all put their collective marbles in the sack of Kenseth! After his dismal showing at Charlotte, Kenseth is over in the must win column!
The Former Outlaw, known these days as Kurt Busch, has a stable of three players, Jerry The Buschwacker, Dan The Numbers Cruncher, and Brandon who are rooting him on for a victory that would allow KuBu to move on to the next round of The Chase.
There are four drivers that have two players each on their bandwagon for Kansas.
Both Karen The Highly Opinionated Southern Belle, and A&M Aggie Sue have high hopes that The Delivernator, Denny Hamlin, will come through with a win. If he is successful he would help both of those ladies march back up towards the top, and/or maintain their positions on the scoring pylon.
Equally as hopeful are Dawn and Jason The Latent Tie Dye Hippie and All Around Edgy Dude that Mr. Four-Time, Jeff Gordon can garner at least one more win before retiring at seasons end.
Edie and Jeremy The Coach are really wishing that they will not be a day late and a dollar short this week, in light of Logano’s victory last week! Both of them are hanging out in the Joey Logano camp for this race.
And lastly, Bernie The Bay Area Bandit and Password Queen as well as Linda The Cookie Mom have all the confidence in the world that Carl Edwards can bring the bacon home on Sunday.
Good luck to all this week from the land of John Cougar, John Deere and John 3:16, better known as Kansas Speedway!
TIL NEXT TIME, PULL YOUR GLOVES UP, FLIP YOUR VISOR DOWN, AND LET’ GO RACIN’!
