    Gentlemen,
          Just a quick note , ,  Since they used points to start the race, that means that all the Top 16 will be at the front to start the race.  And since the "Little Big One" usually happens before the 1st segment ends, I'm predicting a lot of Top 12 cars will be out of the race.

    This has got to be the ugliest points race in Jack Cup history. Can't wait to see the points breakdown. I think everybody will be in negative territory.

    I know I am probably in negative numbers. Especially when my first out is the winner(darn rain) and my winner pick is near the bottom third. at least my longshot finished 3rd.

    Gentlemen,
          Welllll, just like I said.  UGLY.  And I really think the race should have been given to Kurt Busch.  The race was called under caution, he was in the lead.  They announced they were going to "one lap" BUT they never re-started the race.  He was leading the last time they crossed the start /finish. If they has thrown the green flag, and then immediately thrown the caution; without even completing a lap (happens with a wreck on a re-start) it would have been legit.
         Amazingly, no one was in the negative numbers (but I sure tried) and One of us had a good day. So now all we need to do is get thru the next road course and KY (this weekend).
         We had One person come closest to picking the winner. That was me (indsguiz)  picking: Kurt Busch,  We had two people pick the best Long Shot.  They were Fishin Coyote, and Timachro, both picking:  Jimmy Johnson. And we had two people come closest to picking the 1st Out.  They were Fishin' Coyote and Bigfoot, picking: Quinn Houff.
         And this weeks best picker, and NASCAR God of the Week is Fishin' Coyote, with an amazing 60 points! 23 points better than 2d place.  Congratulations!
         Here's How We Scored:
     
    1.  Fishin' Coyote ************************************** 60
    2.  Bigfoot ****************************************  37
    3.  Dano *****************************************  36
    4.  Hendey Lathe **********************************  29 t/b
    5.  Bloody Hand ***********************************  29
    6.  Indsguiz *************************************  15
    7.  Timachro ************************************  13
    8.  Wood Nickle *********************************  -31
    Again Congratulations to Fishin'  Coyote.  And thank You all for playing.
                 And Welcome Back BH!

    you get minus the long shots points. ( least I did when that happened to me )
    But Gase would have scored 10 points had he been scored.
    So Kyle +23, Eliott -15, Gase -10 = -2

    I copied from the rules...yep I blew it::

    Quote: Rules are the same this year as last. You pick a winner; You pick a Long Shot, and You pick a 1st Out. The scores are totaled: Winner + Long Shot - 1st Out, to give weekly scores. Scores will be tabulated all season long to determine a final "NASCAR God of the Week". Some additional Information: 1. If you pick a Long Shot who is in the Top 12 (after the 1st three races) you lose 43 points. If you pick a 1st out who doesn't qualify you lose 43 points. And with lower tier drivers changing cars we will use the car number for scoring. 1st three weeks there will be no Top 12. In the event of a tie, best winner will determine the higher placement, then earliest entry.

         Annnd I blew it again.
        Guys please check your picks.  I hate negative math.
       Should be:  Kyle Busch 23, Elliott (-40) {only 40 cars in Race} and then Gase (-14)  14 places up from last.  So Wood Nickle has (-31) for the day.
         And Thank You, John, for being so honest.
         I've got to stop scoring these races late at night or early in the morning.
