Woo Hoo….On to Talladega we go for the Geico 500. This is race 10 of 36 with the spring segment ending after race 13. Which means you have 4 more chances (including this race) to move up in points before we close out the spring segment. Hopefully we will see some good racing after having a break last week for Easter.

The Random Numbers to pick for were drivers will finish are 9th, 17th and 22nd……see if you can keep up with repeating numbers.

9th place was picked because Talladega has 9 letters in it & sounded good. Also, it was in 2009 that Brad Keslowski won his first cup race. To play with the numbers even more, Brad was racing the #9 car and he started from the 9th position. It was a massive race were Brad stole the win from Edwards in the #99 car. The end result of that race was Edwards up in the catch all fence due to that new “car of tomorrow”. It was a chain reaction of events.

17th place was picked for all you Stenhouse “fans”. It was at Talladega in 2017 that #17 got his first cup win in the fall race.

22nd place was picked for last years winner #Joey Logano of the Spring race. Interesting that 22 drivers finished on the lead lap of that race too. And if we want to tie it back to #2 Brad K, the #22 finished in 2nd at previous race at Richmond.

As always, exact picks get 15 points & closest without going over gets 5 points.


As for the bonus, since everyone is always waiting for the BIG 1 to happen at Talladega, we will be honoring 1 hit wonders (songs). You can post up to 3 songs for a total of 3 points. You can post 1 song with your race picks but your other 2 songs must be posted separately . If you can’t post a video, just post the song & we will do it for you.

Below are the point standings of everyone going into Talladega & good luck.

I'm posting my first one hit wonder that is one of the funniest things to ever happen.....

"One Toke Over The Line" by Brewer & Shipley was a huge hit in 1970.....BUT.....somehow a spiritual duo Gail & Dail thought it was all about Jesus & Actually sang it on the Lawerence Welk Show. Oh sweet Jesus, how did they not catch this one.....I still laugh myself silly with this "cover"
