This weekend NASCAR makes its second trip to the Pocono Mountains of Pennsylvania. It is the last trip this year to the Tricky Triangle, aka Pocono Raceway. This will be the last time that the NASCAR schedule will have two separate Pocono races seven weeks apart. Next year, there will still be two Pocono races, however it will be in one weekend visit, a race on Saturday and a race on Sunday.
OUR POCONO CHOICES
As the accompanying photo at the top of the page suggests Kevin Harvick gets the most votes this week. Snoopy Dawn, Linda B. The Cookie Mom, as well as Bobby Blue Crush will be betting the farm that “Happy Harvick” can go back-to-back in Victory Lane!
Jeremy The Coach and Dan The Numbers Cruncher are hanging out with William Clyde Elliott, Jr., better known as Chase, this weekend. Both players are trying to find a way to stowaway inside the HMS No. 9 Chevy all race at Pocono.
Edie The Las Vegas Super Star and Linda R. The Lemonade Lefty must obviously be thinking that “Blazingly Bad” Brad Keselowski is on the cusp of logging another victory prior to the post season beginning.
Meanwhile, Lonna The Quilt Angel and Bernie The Bay Area Bandit are thinking that Ryan “No Neck” Newman will be there at the end contending for the victory!
Rounding out our choices this week is the unlikely duo of Amber The Extremely Lucky Cheddar Head and Wild Bill the Pretzel Man are teaming up this week supporting Ricky Stenhouse, Jr.
That leaves almost half of our fantasy league, seven (7) players in total, who are stepping out on the thin young limb to be proudly in bidnez for themselves!
As the regular season starts to wind down, the vise tightens, and some may have to crank it up a notch or two to run down their dreams of a Cup championship.
Good luck to all!
TIL NEXT TIME, PULL YOU BELTS TIGHT AND LETS GO RACIN’!
