This week, NASCAR rolls into the Irish Hills of southwestern Michigan, more accurately into the suburbs of Brooklyn, MI! This high speed, medium banked facility, Michigan International Speedway, produces some of the fastest lap times of any race track on the NASCAR schedule. As you will find out by reading all about this race track following the above provided link, Roger Penske was once the owner of MIS before selling it and Auto Club Speedway to the France family about a decade ago.
OUR MICHIGAN CHOICES
This week we have an interesting spread of choices by our players, two drivers have a rooting section of three players and three drivers have support form two players each. That is kind an interesting numerology for those that are into those things!
Leading us off this week is a mismatched trio consisting of Kathy The Church Forecloser, Carole, aka Rudy, as well as Wild Bill The Pretzel Man putting it all on the line for ol Rowdy this week. This unconventional trio of Kyle Busch supporters are really hoping that the Las Vegas native can put another whooping on the field at the end of the race Sunday!
However, Bernie The European Touring Bandit, Bobby Blue Crush, and Leon Your Most Humble Sheriff could really use some attitude and an extremely fast race car from “Blazingly Bad” Brad Keselowski. All three are hoping that this is the week that Team Penske, and in particular BK has the field covered in the Irish Hills! Even though it is not Memorial Day weekend nor Veterans Day weekend, these three really want to see Old Glory waving out of the drivers window of the No. 2 Ford Sunday and a cloud of smoke pouring off of BK’s rear wheels!
Edie the Las Vegas Super Star and Lonna The Quilt Angel are betting heavily on YRB this week. Both ladies are in full support mode for another Team Penske driver, Young Ryan Blaney. It would appear that these two players are thinking that it is about time for YRB to bust out of his season long slump and into the donut contest that Sliced Bread, Blazingly Bad Brad, MTJ (Martin Truex, Jr), and Ol Rowdy have been dominating so far this season!
Meanwhile, Dan The Numbers Cruncher and Karen the Highly Opinionated Southern Belle are fully backing Freaky Fast Kevin Harvick this week. Both The Numbers Dude and The Extremely Opinionated One are rolling the dice that this will be the week that Harvick will be triumphant, and punch his ticket into the playoffs for 2019.
Lastly, Jim, aka Chiefy and Jeremy The Coach think that Young Money, can relight his team and pull off the win, much like he did a couple of weeks ago in the All-Star race at Charlotte. Could this be the week that Kyle Larson joins the playoffs?
This week one third of our players, six in total, are independent thinkers and thusly are in bidnez for themselves!
As we have come to learn from playing in The Redneck Fantasy League, some days you are the bug and some days you are the windshield. If your driver wins the race it is a glorius race day. However your man “eats it” it can be a huge heartache!
Good luck to all!
TIL NEXT TIME, PULL YOUR BELTS TIGHT AND LET’S GO RACIN”!
