    Those who scored below around 130-135 keep in mind you get to drop your lowest score, and that was approximately the level of scores that were dropped last year. Anyone who missed this race can still enter and be in contention for the overall win by dropping Daytona as a zero score. Next up - Phoenix, a totally different venue where some skill comes into play making your picks. Tip: Smoke gets in your eyes.

    Hee. Smoke. That's a racer's nickname.

    Earl Cadwards and Katt Menseth usually do well in Phoenix also.

    I think he just did that so you could grammatically say the name that way.

    An audit of scores made while sober has turned up one error, MaconVol's score was five points too high. Sorry man, but you will most likely be dropping this score anyway.

    Thoughts and comments: two of you picked a driver who didn't make the race. Always check your picks against the final race lineup which I post. Exactly half (11) of you picked the last place finisher, David Ragan. Only three picked the winner, Matt Kenseth, only one picked him to win, yours truly. David Ragan and Tony Stewart were the most picked drivers with eleven choosing each.

    The highest possible score for this race is 245 points which would have been earned by making these picks in this order:
    Pole - Carl Edwards
    1. Kenseth
    2. Earnhardt, Jr. or Biffle or Hamlin
    3. Burton
    4. Menard
    5. Blaney
    6. T. Labonte
    In last years contest it normally took a score of around 200 to win, many times over 200, so, you can see this was a low average score race, which is not unusual for Daytona.

    Earl Cdwards looked Slovakian or something. We're talking NASCAR, not NHL. :)

    I think I should get bonus points for picking montoya and him having the accuracy to hit the tanker.

    If you had called for him to hit the jet dryer in advance, you would have deserved bonus points.
