Well done Jon! Andy and Sebastian came close, but no cigar.

James’ was a carryover but it was a full entry for the events happening this week, although it didn’t serve him too well.

Check out Sebastian’s break-down of the scores to see how you got there.

A change for the 3rd position spot with just two rounds remaining! Well-played Sean and hard luck Ryan, there are 7 points in it and two individual events in the coming fortnight which means some tight scores – which way will it go?

Jon’s win opens his lead over Startledbunny from 42 to 57 points.

The fight between Burwellian, Jackie and James is still tight with the three covered only by 52 points, I was slightly mystified by Jackie’s pick of Kobayashi!

Coming Up – Week 43

Sprint Cup – The season finale is at the Homestead-Miami Speedway in Florida.

This is the penultimate week. Enjoy the race and please do leave your feedback here!

  5. Cup: Biffle, Ku. Busch, Ky. Busch, Edwards, Hamlin, Johnson, Kenseth

    I almost picked Joey Logano due to his recent hot streak, but that would still be risky…

    I’m going to pick for DTM next week also. I’m as ignorant about DTM as the Eurofans are about NASCAR, so I’m going to pick the DTM top seven in points in kind:

    DTM: di Resta, Ekström, Green, Paffett, Rockenfeller, Scheider, Spengler

  6. Well, you can’t make up any ground by picking all the same guys as everybody else, so…

    Cup:
    Jimmie Johnson
    Kevin Harvick
    Greg Biffle
    Juan Montoya
    Clint Bowyer
    Joey Logano (thanks, Sean!)
    Jamie McMurray

    And for next week’s DTM:
    Paul di Resta
    Timo Scheider
    Bruno Spengler
    Mike Rockenfeller
    Mattias Ekstrom
    Oliver Jarvis
    Markus Winklehock

    Thanks, Pat!
