NSCAR Picks of the Week - 2021 - Martinsville

Gentlemen,
     This week the racers Head to Martinsville for a SATURDAY NIGHT RACE,  It's a classic Short track, Night race.  Brakes and tires (as always) will be big events at this track.
      I have some thoughts on the season so far.  The 1st being that we have 7 different winners in 7 races so far.  And the Points Leader doesn't have a win.  Only 16 drivers will be in the playoffs, so some people better start winning more races, or people won't be able to "Point in" to the playoffs and some winners may be left out.  TIRES:  Yes new tires can help with a win.  But personally I'd like to see them bring a harder compound tire, that would fall off less quickly, so there would be more driver skill involved.  And finally,,, late race cautions?  Doesn't it seem odd that late in a race, when a driver has a BIG lead, some back marker loses an engine, or has a flat and that bunches up the field for an exciting finish?  If the guy drove 388 miles, and then blew an engine, or spun and hit the wall? Well enough of my rant.
      Here's your Top 12:  And $ indicates a race winner.
 
1.  Denny Hamlin                                                     7.  Ryan Blaney $
2.  Joey Logano $                                                     8.  Kevin Harvick
3.  Martin Truex, Jr. $                                                9.  Chase Elliott
4.  Kyle Larson $                                                     10.  Christopher Bell $
5.  Brad Keselowski                                                 11.  Austin Dillion
6.  William Byron $                                                  12.  Michael Mc Dowell $
 
           THIS IS A SATURDAY NIGHT RACE.
 
     Here's my picks:
               Winner:  Christopher Bell
                       Long Shot:  Kurt Busch
                               1st Out:  James Davison
 
                      Good Luck!  And Thank You for playing.

    Gentlemen,
          Well, we have our 1st 2 time winner.  Martin Truex with a true come-from-behind victory. we also had James Davison have his best ride of the year; which really hurt some of our 1st Out picks.  It was short track racing at it's best.  AND if we had a "best 3d Place" pick it would go to Denny Hamlin,,, alll year. LOL
         We had two people pick the actual winner of the race.  They were: Bigfoot and wood Nickle, both picking: Martin Truex, jr.
         We had three people pick the best Long Shot.  They were: Fishin' Coyote, Bigfoot and Timachro, all picking:  Kyle Busch.
         And we had one person come closest to picking the actual 1st Out.  That was Timachro; Picking: Justin Haley.
         So congratulations go out to this weeks'  Best Picker and NASCAR God of the Week:  Timachro with a fine 78 points!  Congratulations!  
     
         Here's How We Scored"
    1.  Timachro ******************************************  78
    2.  Bigfoot *******************************************  75
    3.  Wood Nickle ***********************************  54
    4.  Hendey Lathe *********************************  52
    5.  Porktown ***********************************  48
    6.  Dano ************************************  44
    7.  Fishin' Coyote ****************************  43
    8.  Indsguiz ***************************  33
    9.  Bloody Hand ******************  22
     
       Congratulations again to Timachro!  And Thank You for playing.
