RACE #2 ATLANTA

 What a horrible start for my ShinySideUp team. Part is due to my forgetting  to set my drivers before they locked. But most of my misfortune is picking drivers who wreck late in the races. Overall it was a pretty good race after the rains went away. Jimmy J's Lowes Chevrolet was the winner and he will be in the chase.
  This weeks winner was Throwingarod with 306 points. He started Joey logano, Kasey Kahne, Martint Truex and David Gilland. The good showing moved him into 2nd place overall. Finishing second this week was Checkers or Wreckers with 303 points. There was a tie for 3rd between cantgetright and Zagnut Racing. Both had 301 points.

Next week we are in Phoenix. Don't be like me and get your line-ups set before the deadline.

RACE # 1 DAYTONA 500

   This was a race without Busch's and the big one. Perhaps the lack of  the first had to do with the latter. I always pick one strong driver and fill the rest of my lineup with so-so drivers. The 500 is always a crap shoot and why waste a good driver pick on a demolition derby.
   Well....things didn't turn out that way with no demolition of 20+ cars and my strong pick was looking good until Gordon got turned around on the last lap and finished 33rd. He led the most laps and that was my week in a nutshell.
   This weeks winner was Bigshows Machine with 310 points. He started Jimmy Johnson, Martin Truex, Kasey Kahne and David Ragan. Bigshows has been in this league since the start and he is making a statement by starting off strong. You can bet he wants to improve on his 12th place finish last year. In second this week was Joko Floko's Revenge with 306 points. Joko Flocko's owner has been racing in yahoo fantasy leagues for 3 years. And other than 2014 he has done quite well (92%, 86%,68%). Finishing 3rd was Golden Dog with 296 points. He has been racing in Yahoo since 2005 and has several trophy's in his case. Golden Dog will be a tough competitor this year .
  Looks like we have a great group of players this year who know a thing or two about Yahoo fantasy racing. Welcome to all the new members and the old timers. See ya in Phoenix.
