This week NASCAR begins its West Coast swing with races in Las Vegas, Phoenix, and Fontana over the next three weeks. First on the schedule is a weekend in “Sin City” where the bright lights gonna set my sol on fire! I got a whole lot of money that’s ready to burn, so get those stakes up higher!
Our Las Vegas Picks
This week almost one third of the fantasy league, six players in all, are like minded in their thought process. Linda The Cookie Mom, Carole, aka Rudy, Skid-Marc, Jerry The Buchwacker (go figure), Jeremy The Coach and Cole The Redneck Understudy are all putting their marbles in Kyle Busch’s marble sack this week.
One quarter of the fantasy league, 4 players, that includes David The Mudslinging Throttle Jockey, Lonna The Quilt Angel, Bobby Blue Crush and Karen The Highly Opinionated Southern Belle all are banding together in hopes that Kurt Busch can pull off his very first victory at his hometown track, Las Vegas Motor Speedway.
There are two drivers that have a rooting section of three players this week. Snoopy Dawn The Private investigator, Doug The Gandy Candy Man and Bernie The Bay Area Bandit will be riding shotgun with “Freak Fast’ Kevin Harvick.
Meanwhile, Jim, aka Chiefy, Edie The Las Vegas Super Star and Leon Your Most Humble Sheriff are hoping that “Blazing Bad” Brad Keselowski can back up his win last year and drive his Miller Lite Ford into Victory Lane Sunday.
Lastly, there are two drivers who have a pair of players in their rooting section.
Carlton The Doorman and Zee, aka Sissy are thinking that it is time for Martin Truex, Jr. to lead the pack to the checkered flag at Vegas. But neither Kathy The Church Forecloser nor Dan The Numbers Cruncher are buying into that theory. These two players hope that Joey Logano will be show them all the fast way around the race track.
For those counting there was only one player that is in bidnez for herself, A&M Aggie Sue! This is the first time in my recollection that there was only one player who was an independent thinker.
Good luck to all this weekend!
A fortune won and lost on ev’ry deal
