Points Awarded – Week 38
Well done Jackie! Also to Sebastian just two points behind.
The closest battle on the table is Jackie vs Burwellian and here they are finishing 1st and 3rd this week, brilliant!
Sean and RG were hit by two of their Cup picks only scoring a point apiece, similarly Speedgeek only picked up three points from two drivers. Normally you’d expect Kahne, Newman and Kurt Busch to reach the top fifteen at least.
Check out Sebastian’s break-down of the scores per pick.
Overall Standings – Week 38
Jackie is now just 35 points behind Burwellian following this week’s high scores from the pair. The other one to watch is Jon who is now 48 points behind The Speedgeek, and closing almost every week.
The only other pair less than 100 points apart are RG and Sean with a gap which widened to 99 points this week.
Results sheets are now available on the TMR drop.io.
Coming Up – Week 39
F1 – The all-new venue in South Korea has famously struggled to finish construction on time, at the time of writing it seems as though the track itself is ready and little else is. I’m not expecting a lot of fans even if the grandstands are finished. The track layout itself looks, frankly, awful. I really hope this race is better than it looks like it will be.
Sprint Cup – Another visit to Martinsville, the little ‘paperclip’ oval.
WRC – The penultimate round of the WRC is a fast asphalt rally based near Barcelona.. so just let me know who other than Loeb you’ll be picking.
Enjoy the races!
