Mods, you can lock the Pocono thread.

P.S. This is just an idea, but what if next race we start something like we guess who gets the pole and who wins the race, and then we keep track of points by how many winners you picked, and how many polesitters you picked? Like 15 points if the driver you picked won, 10 pts if he finished 2-10, 8 pts if he finished 11-20, 6 pts if he finished 21-30, 4 pts if he finished 31-40, and 2 pts if he finished 41-43. And the same thing for poles too, but we'll have two separate standings for points and poles. What do you guys think about it?

What a surprise! Yeley got the pole! Truex, Mears, and Yeley have been doing good the last few weeks. Hopefully now we can get JJ into victory lane for another first time winner this year.  Smile

LOL

I see that Stephen Leicht got his first Busch series win, but the funny thing about that is, if you go to this link, http://www.nascar.com/2007/news/head...cky.busch.results.ap.ap/index.html , it shows his car with two cases of Busch beer on top, but he's only 20 y/o so he can't even drink it! LOL!

Here's the link for the Busch results: http://www.nascar.com/races/bg/2007/16/data/results_unofficial.html

Could someone clear this up for me please?... if you look at the results, it shows Mike Bliss finished 9th in the number 22 Supercuts car. But if you look at the 43rd finisher, you have Carlos Contreras who raced in the number 22 Supercuts car also. How does that work out????

Mark Martin may fill in for Jeff Gordon in the #24 if Jeff stays in NC, as he and the Mrs are expecting their daughter any day now.

Jeff can miss the race at Sears Point and will still have at least a 69 point lead heading into New Hampshire in two weeks, and that's assuming Denny Hamlin wins and leads the most laps.

I think he's driven the #4 Morgan-McClure car before, so that might be it.

Decent run by Edwards.

Interesting the hendricks cars didn't do as well this week. And Johnson ran out of fuel? WTF?

Mears was 4th, Kyle Busch was 6th, and Gordon was 9th, with Gordon and Johnson leading significant laps

That's not exactly awful...

That said, good runs for Truex (2nd), Junior (5th), Mikey Waltrip (10th!!!! HOLY SH*T), and Bill Elliott (11th)

Brian Vickers had another strong run ruined by the fact Jeff Green is a dumb ass who can't control his racecar if he tried... but Green took out Kenseth in the process so I can't complain too much

I found a typo I made, and just wanted to point it out so I don't confuse anyone. I accidentally put #99 P.J. Jones will be taking over for David Reutimann while it's supposed to be #00. I was thinking of Reutimann's Busch car.

Almost halfway through the season and his crew is just figuring out how to qualify for the race? Uh-oh. Good for Mikey anyway, that's just what he needed.

Missed the race yesterday as I was busy all afternoon. Caught the highlights on ESPN, though. Another top 10 for Gordon & a 3rd for Smoke, so I'm happy. Too bad my Yahoo fantasy team got killed. Some thoughts:

-Edwards' win was good for his coach driver...anybody see how nasty looking that beard had gotten? (The one he & Carl agreed that he would grow until he won another Cup race).

-I feel good for Mikey getting a top 10, but how did he pull that off? Pit strategy, or was the car decent all day?

-It looks like Rick Hendrick is going to have some sentimental issues if he decides to pick up the #8 for Jr- give up the #5 (which has been HMS's since their start), or the #25 (the number of the team owned by Rick's dad & after his death, given to Ricky, who also died).

Contreras ran the #44, which was a second Fitz Racing entry. Why NASCAR.com (or wherever you found the results) has him in the 22 is beyond me.

Sorry to bug you guys, but could you give me some feedback on my idea I stated in the thread opener? I think it would make these threads a little bit funner. Your opinions?


This is just an idea, but what if next race we start something like we guess who gets the pole and who wins the race, and then we keep track of points by how many winners you picked, and how many polesitters you picked? Like 15 points if the driver you picked won, 10 pts if he finished 2-10, 8 pts if he finished 11-20, 6 pts if he finished 21-30, 4 pts if he finished 31-40, and 2 pts if he finished 41-43. And the same thing for poles too, but we'll have two separate standings for points and poles. What do you guys think about it?

I think this is a great idea, Kreg, however I think it would work best if implemented at the beginning of the season, though it would work now as well. Separate threads form these NASCAR discussions should be used, which would make it that much easier, otherwise it would just be hard to keep track of.

Cheers

Can we wager?  Big grin

Seriously... if I can remember to get here every week [sarcasm](it's a HUGE effort)[/sarcasm], I'm in.

Format suggestion: All picks have to be in before qualifying. Pick one driver in the top 15 in points, one from 16-30, and one from 31st or worse. Add up their finishing positions from the race, low score wins. If your driver doesn't qualify, he's credited with finishing 44th. (TIEBREAKERS: Whoever has the highest finisher overall, then 3nd highest, 3rd highest, etc. If two picks are exactly the same, whoever picked it first wins)

Thanks for the ideas guys, I appreciate it. I'll be sure to add the info on the Infineon thread on Thursday.

Thanks to Duff44, we have an idea on how we're going to do the pole section, but what about the actual race? Should we choose two drivers then use the NASCAR points system to do the points? (i.e. You pick Edwards and Truex and they finish 1st and 2nd, which would mean for Edwards you would get 185 + 10 (bonus pts for leading the most laps) and 170 + 5 (bonus pts for leading at least one lap, but not the most) for Truex bringing your total to 370 points for that race)

Sounds good...let's start it for the second half of the year, though.

Should be a pretty easy week for those of you playing the Yahoo game. Not hard to pick the contenders on all 3 lists this week.  Wink

I meant that for the race, not qualifying (although I suppose it would work for both)... If somebody picks a go-or-go-homer for their 31+ pick, and they don't qualify, they are credited with a 44th place finish for the race.

Either that, or limit it to the top 35 (The chasers 1-12, 13-25, 26-35 or some split like that), so that everyone's drivers are guaranteed to be in...

I'm starting to think this will be REALLY complicated once everyone jumps in.... I'm still working on format ideas.

Updated list, normal driver in parentheses:

#00 P.J. Jones (David Reutimann)
#02 Brandon Ash
#23 Butch Leitzinger (Jeremy Mayfield), number changed from 36 to 23 & CAT will sponsor.
#37 Brian Simo
#49 Klaus Graf (Mike Bliss)
#55 Terry Labonte (Michael Waltrip)
#60 Boris Said
#91 Marc Goossens

The only drivers of this list guaranteed a start are Terry Labonte (Past Champ Provisional) & Ron Fellows (top 35 in owner points).

Marcos Ambrose voluntarily skips the race to focus on the Busch Series, will run at the Glen.

Scott Pruett has a schedule conflict and will not race.
