    Shocking isn't it?! I am most surprised at that this season.... :confused: :)

    647 did it, and I still managed to pick a first round loser (thanks Jason Line!) so there is that.....

    Racer 12306, you called last week luck. I'm calling this week bad luck. Anyone have any idea what happened with Savoie? Of course we all know what happened with Courtney. Heck I feel lucky not to be in the 300's. Congrats to FlynVega.

    He pulled his entry at the last minute. "The two-bike team owner opted to stay home at Cutoff, La., to protect his alligator farm business and property in the wake of Tropical Storm Cindy and leave the racing to partner L.E. Tonglet."

    Which sucks because he was a pick of mine and I'm sure others. But that's the way this game goes sometimes.

    Got lucky there. Had Savoie picked and saw he wasn't going to be there in time to make that change.

    Definitely didn't see that he pulled from the event because of the storm. Realistically I probably would have picked Eddie in his place.

    So can we just count me as 589 for this week? :p

    Not a big improvement but an improvement.

    Well that was an interesting round.... :cool:

    We have tie, both racer12306 and z28camaro scored the top with 657 points, with racer12306 making his move in the standings, with Flyn Vega back in number 1.

    I'll have full stats posted later....

    And two reminders.

    Back at it this coming weekend in Seattle. Picks in this Friday...

    And second, make sure all of your picks register before you sign out of the game. One player made 7 picks, and this most certainly resulted in a loss of position in the standings.

    Good week for me for sure.

    I'm coming for #1, I would have been in the thick of it last year if it wasn't for forgetting to pick a few weeks.

    Congrats to z28 camaro too.

    We were #9 and 10 overall.

    We were #9 and 10 overall.

    At some point after the Round 15 results were first posted at the game webpage, the administrator there made corrections. From what I could gather, anyone that picked Tanner Gray in that round had another 10 points added as that pick was short 10 points.

    Also, "qualifying little points" were not correctly tallied on their initial count. As a consequence, nearly everyone had 1 or 5 points added to their Round totals.

    This had the effect of breaking our First place tie. It shows z28camaro (659) by 1 point over Racer12306 (658) . I apologize for their error....

    Been a lot of fun. I debated about joining this, but am glad I did.

    Has anybody made their picks for this week yet and had an issue? I went to look at some things and have the PSM for St. Louis popping in there and won't let me make a different selection for PA.

    I've made note of this and sent an inquiry to the game administrator. If you notice the inverse is true for the St. Louis round.

    I apologize for getting this posted so late. There are not enough hours in my day.....

    So...in the Maple Grove round big numbers were posted, with sf1972 bagging the most with an impressive 722. Great job Scott!

    And the upper half of the standings shuffles once again, with racer12306 moving up from 3rd to 1st.
