I was a slacker last week and didn’t post my results for Bristol or my picks for Atlanta. So here is a bit of a recap!
Bristol wasn’t a good night for me. I had Brad Keselowski picked to win, along with a supporting cast of Kyle Busch, Kurt Busch, and Ricky Stenhouse Jr. That crew brought me home a 30th, 11th, 31st, and 18th. Anyway you shape that, it wasn’t good! Brad’s 30th place finish brought my average finish down to 13.88 for the year.
At Atlanta I picked Kasey Kahne to win the race. My B team had Juan Pablo Montoya and Carl Edwards on it. I had David Ragan on my C team. This lineup netted me a 36th, 7th, 18th, and 23rd place finishes. Again, not a real good week. Khane’s 36th place finish brought my average finish down to 14.76, that’s the worst its been since Martinsville early in the season! But with one race to go before the chase I’m looking to rebound! I’ve still got a top ten finish on that average in site and at least one overall championship in site on my Yahoo Fantasy Sports Picks!
To start that rebound this weekend at Richmond I am going with Clint Bowyer. He had the race one last week at Atlanta had not that hot power plant have blown up, he can get the job done at Richmond and should be considered a chase favorite. I’m just hoping he doesn’t have another one of those ticking time bomb Toyota’s under the hood this week! To see all my picks and averages for the year, CLICK HERE

A summer segment that started out so strong for me in both my leagues has dwindled to average at best. For the summer segment I sit 4th in my small league and 21st in my big league. Overall for the year I’m 3rd in my small league and 7th in my big league. With a little luck, I still might be able to pull them both off!
But first I need to finish the summer segment strong at Richmond! As I mentioned above my A team driver is Clint Bowyer, I haven’t picked him much this year, which is a good thing especially if he gets hot in the chase, heck if he just stays as consistent has he’s been he should score me a lot of points! With 6 starts left after Richmond look for Clint Bowyer’s name to appear a lot at the top of my picks!
On my B team I’m going with Kyle Busch and Dale Earnhardt Jr. This will be my final start for Kyle Busch of the year and with momentum on his side and 4 Richmond wins in the past what better place to use it? This is my second to last start for Dale Jr., I figure with the team needing a top ten to insure they stay in the chase he is a nice top 5 pick and at this point that’s what I need, a whole team of solid finishes.
On the C team I’m going with Ricky Stenhouse Jr. He ran good here in the spring and hopefully can repeat!
