  2. CW -Kyle Busch

  3. Can we still not pick the same driver more than once? If so, or if not.....

  5. CWTS- Kevin Harvick

    NNS- Kyle Busch

    Cup- Jeff Gordon

  6. TsFan... Neither Joey or Denny are in the 20 car. The driver is Matt DiBenedetto. Who??? lol

  7. Beverly-

    There are no restrictions on driver selection this week(other than the driver you pick for a certain race actually needs to be entered for that race). Kyle is not running the CWTS race this week; he'll be in Memphis for the NW race. I have you down for Kyle, Kyle, and Hornaday.

    Tsfan- CR pretty much covered it. If I don't hear back from you, I'll just assign you the #20 car no matter who's driving.

    F2- Likewise with Kyle in the truck race. Denny is driving that truck this week, so if I don't hear anything, I'll just put you down for Denny in the truck race.

  8. CWTS....T Bodine



  9. Trucks - Ron Hornaday
    NW - Carl Edwards
    Cup - I'm with Forensic as anyone who read my 'curse of the fans' thing I posted ages ago on that strange other site would know, this is practically the kiss of death...Jimmie Johnson

    Cup - VIVA MONTOYA!!!! Damn it, Juan! Win a race!

  11. And the Beagle will go with:

    Trucks: Colin Braun

    NW: Brad Keselowski

    Cup: Mark Martin

    I have a very busy day tomorrow, so I may not be able to get to post updates until late tomorrow.
