As we celebrate the beginning of summer, the Memorial Day weekend, it also signals a couple of more things. This race is also the last race in the first segment of our fantasy league, as well as a weekend of remembrance of those who lost their lives protecting our freedom.
Our Charlotte Picks
In this final week of the first segment we have two drivers that have a rooting section of four players. Mr. Seven-Time, Jimmie Johnson, has the support of Lonna The Quilt Angel, Bobby Blue Crush, Jerry The Buschwacker, as well as Jim, aka Chiefy are hoping that Johnson can deliver one more victory for this quartet to finish off the first segment.
Likewise, Bernie The Bay Area Bandit, Doug The Gandy Candy Man, Carole, aka Rudy and Leon Your Most Humble Sheriff are betting the farm that Martin Truex, Jr. can repeat history from last year’s race with one very important exception, he drives his hot rod into Victory Lane!
There are three drivers that have a pair of cheerleaders backing them. Alphabetically, the first driver to discuss is Chase Elliott. Both Carlton The Doorman and Karen The Highly Opinionated Southern Belle have a vested interest in Elliott’s results at Charlotte.
Both A&M Aggie Sue and Cole The Redneck Understudy feel that “Young Money”, Kyle Larson, will grab his second victory of the season.
Lastly, Edie The Las Vegas Super Star and Zee, aka Sissy, are pulling for “Slice Bread”, Joey Logano, to be celebrating in Victory Lane when the checkered flag flies on NASCAR’s longest race of the year.
This week one third, seven players, were independent thinkers and as thus will be in bidnez for themselves!
Good luck to all this weekend.
As you watch the Indy 500 and/or the Coca Cola 600, or while you are having a family outing to celebrate this weekend, in the back of your mind be aware that this is the one weekend out of 52 that we take time to remember and honor our fallen comrades, our brothers, sisters, fathers, mothers, husbands, wives, aunts and uncles. Our fallen heroes paid the ultimate price and were only given a one way ticket when they enlisted in the military.
Say a prayer for peace!
TIL NEXT TIME, PULL YOUR GLOVES UP, FLIP YOUR VISOR DOWN, AND LET’S GO RACIN’!
