The “regular season” has ended and now the beginning of “the playoffs’ are scheduled to crank up this weekend at Chicagoland Speedway in Joliet, IL. This is the time where the contenders will separate themselves for the pretenders!
Our Chicagoland Choices
As the headline states both Denny Hamlin is the favorite for the race at Chicagoland Speedway.
This week an unlikely quartet has unknowingly banded together to support “The Delivernator”, Denny Hamlin. That motley crew consists of Kathy The Church Forecloser, ol Skid-Marc, Linda The Cookie Mom, as well as Doug The Gandy Candy Man. These four are hoping that Hamlin will start off the playoffs by punching his ticket to round two of the playoffs.
There are three drivers with a rooting section of three players.
Carole, aka Rudy, Bernie The Bay Area Bandit, as well as Jeremy The Coach are banking heavily that “Freaky Fast” Kevin Harvick will be the first driver to earn a trip to round two of the playoffs.
Cole The Redneck Understudy, Bobby Blue Crush and Leon Your Most Humble Sheriff are all joining forces in order to get their man, Chase Elliott, into Victory Lane Sunday and on to round two.
While A&M Aggie Sue, Zee, aka Sissy and Dan The Numbers Cruncher are banking that one of the hottest drivers of the 2017, “Young Money” aka Kyle Larson, will continue where he left off last week and wheel his hot rod into Victory Lane at Chicagoland.
Both Jim, aka Chiefy and Carlton The Doorman are backing the other hot driver for 2017, Martin Truex, Jr. Truex has, week in and week out, been a dominate figure and in a position to win the race.
Rounding out the picks, Edie The Las Vegas Super Star and Snoopy Dawn are betting the farm that Joey Logano can play spoiler this week and steal a victory.
For all the math majors in the fantasy league, adding up the numbers makes it 18 players that have teamed up with others to support a driver. That means that we have three( 3) players who are in bidnez for themselves this week!
Good luck to all!
For all sixteen drivers who have made the playoffs, they definitely have “something to be proud of”!
