  11. ?? Tez looks to have completed all his races and wins??

    On another note - whoohoo Helio my love!!

  12. it's about time he won for you, Kristen :P

  13. Kristen-

    Don't start counting your chickens, yet. Yes, tez has completed all his races, but the Trifecta win is far from being his. It all depends on how Kyle, Jamie, Biffle, and Kurt do tonight. If Kurt wins, you beat tez.

  14. You mean that cheater from BC is gonna win again??? LOL

    Don't think I'll be bettin' on Kahne again anytime soon...

    If it continues to stand this way... Congrats to tez!

  15. It's happy dance time!!!!!

    As for the Trifecta, both Kyle and Kurt put forth a valliant effort to try and topple tez from the top of the leaderboard, but they came up just a little bit short. By virtue of posting first, the win goes to tez. He ties CR in the overall standongs with 4 wins.

    Congrats, tez!!

    The final standings:

    tez 13
    hanny 13
    klv 17
    sb 18
    moseby 24
    athens 25
    jon 31
    dwindy 41
    cr 47

  16. Wow, 2 weeks in a row that I've finished in the basement. I'm just doing some testing, and will be back strong for the Chase.

    Congrats to tez! ...and thank you SB!

  17. Congrats, Tez! Setting the bar high

  18. WTG Tez!

    I now have two ties for 1st place, and lost both of them. I need a Beagle Beacon to signal me when the Tri is posted each week to get my picks in faster. LOL

  19. Congrats Tez!! Hey I am just happy Helio won for me and Kurt managed to salvage a top 10 finish...I feel like a winner...LOL

  20. I lucked out by picking first me thinks...although I was swapping between Andretti and Wheldon so if I'd gone with Dan, Gene probably wouldn't be feeling as bummed out.
