    Curious to see which "C" driver everyone will go with.

    A number of players have enough "A" and "B" group drivers left that they won't need to use another "C" group driver.

    Even tho it says I got Denny left, I know for sure I picked him, and same with Cody Ware. I'm not wanting to use my last A driver at this point. I started out doing good but fell off here at the end so I just will wait til I see the entry list to make a choice I guess.

    You're right about Denny Hamlin. You used him at the first Pocono race where he finished sixth.

    You picked Cody Ware for the Charlotte ROVAL but because JJ Yeley replaced him in the #51 car after the pick deadline you effectively had Yeley for the ROVAL (he finished 29th).

    So you still have Ware as an unused driver.

    That’s right on Cody lol. I been sick this week so I honestly forgot he was replaced. But yeah I remembered Denny and just been forgetting to point it out. This week I remembered to say something since all my B drivers are gone and my one A driver I’m saving. Tho I can’t win at this point lol. Hmm. But yeah thanks for the reminder on Cody.

    It's between Gaughan and Ragan who will be giving it his best in his last plate track race
    But leaning towards the former

    Dale Jr has always been good on plate tracks. Give him a shot...

    Part of me wants to take this Blake Jones guy since I had some luck with the #77 at Daytona, but another part of me says to go with Gaughan.

    I was told he couldn’t file an entry for the Talladega Cup race because his social security check didn’t arrive in time.

    Driver picks for the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series 1000Bulbs.com 500 at Talladega Superspeedway.

    Brendan Gaughan is the most popular pick having been selected by four players. Landon Cassill, Parker Kligerman, and Corey LaJoie were each selected by three.
    Thanks for participating, fellers. :cheers:

    With six A and B drivers left @SlicedBread22 picks Gaughan.
    Some strategy in play here

    I feel like I picked Suarez already somewhere.. brb lol

    Edit: Oops. Oh well ..in this race Gaughan could outrun Suarez (which is who I would have picked if I saw that.. I originally tried to pick McDowell but I already had used him).. it's possible.

    Still got 5 good ones for the last 5.. Chase may have screwed me at Dover though

    Indeed.

    Not only has @Johali never failed to make a pick, he's usually one of the first to get it in.

    Now that sports gambling is legal in Indiana, they've got @Clutch as a favorite to win this thing.

    Figures, they're new at this stuff. :D

    I'd say @pjmolo is in the catbird seat

    I need a good finish this weekend or my hopes are all but Gaughan :D

    I'd like to think so with three "A group" drivers left 'cept for the fact that the four "A group" drivers I've used so far have finish, on average, in 21st place. o_O

    Probably saving him for Homestead where he will come in second to Joey, your repeat champion.

    Oh that hurt :D In my defense, I never played the game before and did get some very poor results from my A drivers.
    Of course the chap who knocked me off the lead lives so far down-under he can read the results before they run the race.:rolleyes:

    My understanding is the will start at the end of first and begin by making pit stops .
