NASCAR Picks of the Week 2021 - Talladega 1st Race

Gentlemen,
      1st of all let me apologize for this late posting.  My wife had eye surgery and I was a bit busy.
      This week the NASCAR Boys go to Talladega for a plate race, and it's a superspeedway so the picks should be interesting.  There will be a "Big One" (or two).  Where will it hit?  Front runners?  Mid-pack?  the pits? Makes pcking difficult.
      Tires should not be a consideration, but fuel will definitely play into the equation.  Will the Old dogs prevail?  Or, will some young gun find a way to win?
 
     Here's Your Top Twelve:
 
1.  Denny Hamlin                                                             7.  Chase Elliott
2.  Martin Truex, Jr **                                                      8.  Kevin Harvick
3.  Joey Logano *                                                             9.  Brad Keselowski
4.  William Byron *                                                          10.  Christopher Bell*
5.  Ryan Blaney *                                                            11.  Kyle Busch
6.  Kyle Larson *                                                             12.  Austin Dillion
 
            Here's My Picks:
                    Winner: Denny Hamlin (So long as he isn't around Joey Logano)
                            Long Shot:  Matt DiBenedetto
                                     1st Out:  Timmy Hill
 
       Good Luck!  And Thank You for playing.

    Gentlemen,
         And that was a typical plate race.   Favorites go out early (Logano),  and 1st Outs have a great day (Garla).  We had one person whose 1st Out beat his winner and 3 where they tied.  
         We had one person correctly pick the actual winner of the race.  That was Bigfoot; picking:  Brad Keselowski.
          We had one person pick the best 1st Out.  That was me; picking: Matt DiBenedetto.
         And we had four people pick the closest 1st Out.  They were:  Me, Bloody Hand, Porktown, and Timachro; all picking:  Timmy Hill.  Interestingly enough 3 of us also picked Denny Hamlin to win, so that was a wash.
          And congratulations go out to this weeks' Best Picker, and NASCAR God of the Week; With a tie breaker win over Fishin' Coyote; Bigfoot with a good (for a plate race) 50 points.  Congratulations!  I don't have an emoji for "one hand clapping"  LOL   Congratulations.
     
    Here's how We Scored:
     
    1.  Bigfoot ******************************************  50 t/b
    2.  Fishin Coyote *************************************  50
    3.  Indsguiz *************************************** 42
    4.  Dano **************************************  31
    5.  Hendey Lathe ******************************  28
    6.  Pork Town **************************  17
    7.  Wood Nickle ************************  16
    8.  Bloody Hand *************  7
    9.  Timachro **************  5
     
           Congratulations again to Bigfoot.  And Thank You for playing.

    Brad only lead one lap but it was the one that counted the most.
