Charlotte Pick 3 Contest-Coca Cola 600

********Currently updating the Charlotte Pick 3 while watching hockey game.....posting pieces at a time********

On to Charlotte we go for the Coca-Cola 600. The Coca-Cola 600 is Race 13 of 36 and will conclude the Spring Segment. For our Pick 3 Contest, that means after the Charlotte race, points will be tabulated to show who won 1st, 2nd & 3rd. For the record, if there are any ties for winning positions, a tie breaker will happen in Race 14.

***Also, make sure you have your roster set by Wednesday Night. Qualifying is always early at Charlotte and done on Thursday Night***

As for the prizes, $50 gift card goes to 1st place. 2nd & 3rd receive $25 gift cards each. Now, to make it easier for everyone, I decided that gift cards that can be sent to someone via email would be the best & fastest. Right now, I really only know of Amazon email gift cards. If you win, you can have anything you want in the form of a gift card & choose how you want it delivered to you….via email or to your home. We can work that out one-on-one after Charlotte. However, y’all should know I will be gone over Memorial Day Weekend so y’all will have to wait on me posting till Monday or Tuesday. I will try very hard to be prompt with everything since we are concluding the Spring Segment.

The Coca-Cola 600 is always a great race & so patriotic over the memorial day weekend. Charlotte really does it up right with the military. I’ve been to the race 5 times and it is always great but very long & very hot for the drivers. So time to come up with the random numbers.

The Random numbers for the Charlotte Coca-Cola 600 are 6th, 18th & 26th place. If you guess the driver correctly, you will receive 15 points. If no one guesses correctly, the closest without going over will win & you will receive 5 points.

6th place was picked in honor of it being the Coca-Cola 600.

18th place was picked in honor of the 2018 winner, #18 Kyle Busch.

26th place was picked because the Coca-Cola 600 will be on May 26th.

As for the bonus, we will continue playing the "Talking in Lyrics" game. Everyone should know how to play it by now but if you need a refresher you can look back at Dover & Kansas for instructions. Its ok if you also want to talk within the Pick 3 contest but just make sure you respond to the previous song posted before you post your song. You need to hit reply to indicate that you are replying to the song posted before you. If someone else posts/gets to the song first before you post, you need to delete your song. Sometimes the songs go very fast & this just happens. It is first come first serve sort of thing. As long as people are hitting reply to the song, it is perfectly OK for anyone to chat outside the music. This week we will be able to earn 5 points in bonus. 1 point for each lyric posted. posting the video is optional. Also, the object is to post a excerpt of the song/refrain/lyric....please dont post the entire song. Also, you must post the title of the song & artist. Additionally, it would be really nice if you would number your song posts too. I just makes it easier for me.

Happy posting to everyone & Good luck :)

Mack The Knife by Bobby Darin .... Dedicated to tonights Game of Sharks vs. Blues. What a mess of controversy but still a win for the Sharks

"Oh, the shark, babe, has such teeth, dear
And it shows them pearly white
Just a jackknife has old MacHeath, babe
And he keeps it, ah, out of sight
Ya know when that shark bites with his teeth, babe
Scarlet billows start to spread
Fancy gloves, oh, wears old MacHeath, babe
So there's never, never a trace of red"

Song 1
I want you. Third eye Blind


No apologies because my love is genuine
And the mystery of your rythem is so feminine
Here I am and a want to take a hit of your scent ‘cause it gets deep into my soul
You make me want you
Send me all your vampires

song#1
Free Fallin' - Tom Petty
And all the vampires walkin' through the valley
Move west down Ventura Boulevard
And all the bad boys are standing in the shadows
And the good girls are home with broken hearts
And I'm free
Free fallin'
Yeah I'm free
Free fallin'

I could of used this song but crash stole it. The blues are free falling. Lol. Sorry pritzi ill shut up. 😋

there's no crying in hockey
"this is us fans" jack makes an appearance at 2:19
song#2
Big girls don't cry - Fergie

The path that I'm walking I must go alone.
I must take the baby steps 'til I'm full-grown, full-grown.
Fairytales don't always have a happy ending, do they?
And I foresee the dark ahead if I stay?

I hope you know, I hope you know
That this has nothing to do with you.
It's personal: myself and I.
We've got some straightenin' out to do.
And I'm gonna miss you like a child misses their blanket,
But I've got to get a move on with my life.
It's time to be a big girl now.
And big girls don't cry.

Just trust me I'll be fine
And hey yeah

And hey yeah
Before I lose my mind

This is for the actual Race...Right? Not the All-Star Charlotte Race.

Trust I seek and I find in you

For living with a fat one trying to be a skinny one
And DIFFERENT strokes for different folks
And so on and so on and scooby doo"

SONG #2...CHARLOTTE RACE

Has it always been hard for you?
Are you scared of the truth?
Is the wrong way just right for you?
'Cause I'm losing my mind sitting here watching you cry
Don't let the music die
We're playing songs from DIFFERENT times
I'll let you say goodbye on another day but not today

Ain't got no trouble in my life,
No foolish DREAM to make me cry.
I'm never frightened I'm never worried,
I know, I know I'll always get by.
I got the music in me
I got the music in me
I got the music in me


I've Got the Music in Me by Kiki Dee
SONG #4 FOR CHARLOTTE
Yeah, sing with me, sing for the year
Sing for the laughter, sing for the tear
Sing with me, just for today
Maybe tomorrow, the good Lord will take you away
DREAM on
DREAM on
DREAM on
DREAM until your DREAMS come true

Is it Tuesday? Is it Wednesday?
They're runnin' into each other
Somebody tell me, when is my day
Man, this life is sure bein' a mother
So TOMORROW I'm takin' me fishin'
Hang a sign on the door of my life
Tell the world that I've gone missin'
An' I won't be back for a while

Eric Church- Livin' Part Of Life
SONG #5 FOR CHARLOTTE
Barkeep gimme a drink, that's when she caught my eye
She turned to give me a wink, that'd make a grown man cry
I'm BACK in the saddle again

Song 2
Wanted Man Going western theme here


You cross me
You will realize.....your
Your hot in weather
Your cold still
You make a move, I’ll make you feel
Like a
You been talking...in my eyes
I got you in my sights
By the road, you will hang
It’s your neck in this rat cage!

Renegade by Styx.......Song 1

Hangman is comin' down from the gallows, and I don't have very long.
The jig is up!
The news is out!
They've finally found me!
The renegade
Who had it made,
Retrieved for a bounty,
Never more to go astray.
This'll be the end today
Of the wanted man.

A Horse with no Name by America ....Song 2


"I've been through the desert on a horse with no name
It felt good to be out of the rain
In the desert you can remember your name
'Cause there ain't no one for to give you no pain"



some of us are hitting on all cylinders right now :);):p:cool:

It never rains in California, but girl, don't they warn ya?
It pours, man, it pours

It Never Rains in Southern California
Albert Hammond
Song 5
Desperado by the Eagles

"Desperado, why don't you come to your senses?
Come down from your fences, open the gate
It may be rainin', but there's a rainbow above you
You better let somebody love you (let somebody love you)
You better let somebody love you
Before it's too late"


And just to show off, I'll post this version. Anyone remember when Linda was a Stone Poneys ? :cool:
