14

The 14 and 9 are pretty much a "given" here, but I don't think Jamie has shown much this year, regardless of where he qualified. Too many others running well at the Glenn could be up there like the elf, Jeffie, JJ, Kyle, etc. Ugh, you can't count out JPM either although I would love to.

I think I read that the winner, in 21 out of 29 races has started from the top 10.

Time for me to fire up the spaghetti pot and see what the SNP has to say :D

Yeah Tony and Marcos unless something crazy happens will be contenders. I am hoping EGR is finally turning a corner. Jamie is a good road racer so maybe he can do something. I had Keselowski as my third place pick. But I was impressed with Jamie's qualifying run enough to put him there instead.

I am afraid that this is JPM's to lose at the moment. As much as I can't stand him he is a world class road racer.

Re: Weekly Picks & The 1 Point Club

Not that they're a deal breaker but the pit stall selections are:

Tony in stall 2 behind JPM and in front of the 24

Ryan in stall 7 with the 10 in front and the 98 behind

Marcos in stall 31 with the 93 in front and the 38 behind

Pitting on road courses can be so scattered, I don't think it matters much unless they're pitting together under caution.

Got to check on the spaghetti pot :D

OK, Mrs HH & I made our picks to avoid the dungeon. :|

Geez Beaver... the dungeon has been pretty empty this season. ;) :lol: :lol:

That pretty much sums up "How I Spent My Summer Vacation" :roll: even though I did have two weeks with 50+ points :D

The SNP was clear on 1st and 2nd place but somewhat unclear again on 3rd (seems to be becoming a habit with 2 weeks in a row). It kind of looked like a 42 which I could never in good conscience pick, but it turned out to be a 24... :mrgreen:

Re: Weekly Picks & The 1 Point Club

O.K., I went with 9/42/18 (14/24/2)

If you're wonderin' about the ones in parentheses, I always pick 6 drivers each race and wait till the last minute(usually around 11:55) to pick my final 3...btw, the only reason I didn't pick Tony is that every time I do...he goes on the crapper. But, I was CLOSE to puttin' him in...so, if he wins...you can thank me... ;) :lol:

Re: Weekly Picks & The 1 Point Club

I pleade insanity. I made picks ahead of time & then we went to Kings Island (Like 6 Flags) for the day & I wasn't home to make any changes.

Re: Weekly Picks & The 1 Point Club

Seems like every time I make changes I get nothing and the weeks I leave them alone I get something...so this week I made my picks and fought back the urge to change anything and went with:

16
18
14
There are two ways of doing things...the wrong way and my way.

What, don't want to do it my way, there is a fine for that.
