This week NASCAR unloads their cars just West of the outskirts of the western suburbs of Kansas City, KS. When the race track was first built it was “centrally located”, out in the middle of nowhere! Now there is a huge shopping mall on the north side of the race track and a big casino just behind the back straight-away!
My how things have changed!
Our Kansas Picks
As the title suggests this week we have two drivers that are the co-favorites at Kansas, each have a rooting section of four players.
First on that list is “Cousin Carl” Edwards, who has Linda The Cookie Mom, Bernie The Bay Area Bandit, Lonna The Quilt Angel, as well as Bobby Blue Crush all betting the farm that he (Edwards) can drive his Joe Gibbs Racing Toyota into Victory Lane at Kansas.
Likewise, Snoopy Dawn, Cole The On Demand Baseball Player, Jason The Latent Tie Dye Hippie and All-Around Edgy Dude and his father, Leon Your Most Humble Sheriff are pooling their collective marbles and putting them in the marble sack of “Rowdy”, Kyle Busch this week.
Both Carlton The Doorman and Skid-Marc are hoping that Mr. Six-Pack, Jimmie Johnson, can go back-to-back in Sprint Cup victories this week!
The duo of Kathy The Church Forecloser and Dan the Numbers Cruncher are all in this week with the elder Busch Brother, Kurt, who in prior years was known as “The Outlaw”.
Wrapping up the collective popular driver choices this week is Matt Kenseth, who has Jim, aka Chiefy and Jerry The Buschwacker riding shotgun with him at Kansas.
After doing all the “add tos and take aways”, that leaves eight players this week that have individual choices, which could play in their favor if they sky rocket up the ol totem pole with a great race. Conversely, their individuality could cause them extreme discomfort and make them realize “that blue ain’t your color”, if they plummet to the bottom of the leaderboard after the checkered flag flies!
Good luck to all this week!
TIL NEXT TIME, PULL YOUR GLOVES UP, FLIP YOUR VISOR DOWN, AND LET’S GO RACIN’!
