Hey Dave – That’s right buddy – Great minds think alike!!;)
And since you are a [COLOR=”DarkOrange”][B]#20 Tony Stewart[/B][/COLOR] fan, here is more to think about: Tony Stewart would lead the Chase by [U]35 points[/U] if he began the Chase playoff in 10th place. Stewart has five top-10 finishes and three wins in the last eight races.
But, at the same time, #17 Matt Kenseth would lead the standings over #48 Jimmie Johnson [U]by 35 points[/U] if there was no Chase format, and [U]No other driver would be mathematically eligible for the championship.[/U]
Take care, and may the racing gods watch over us. :rolleyes:
P.S. I see you picked Ryan Newman. I almost picked him too – don’t know what is going on with Crew Chief Matt Boreland, but I really don’t see how Newman can do much worse than what he has been doing. He had some really good practice runs, and a good qualifying run…he could finish in the top 10, because when he’s half right he does well on flat tracks like Phoenix – Probably a good pick that I didn’t take. Overall, there is something missing there…Newman should be running in the top 10 every race.
