    Big atta boy to Flyn Vega for taking the Vegas 1 round with a 585. Great job in a challenging week.

    Props to Sf1972 for climbing to #2 in the game's overall standings and keeping our #1 spot....

    Quick facts about this round....

    Our winner for the round, Flyn Vega, had no first place finisher. But won by virtue of having only one pick ousted in the opening round...

    The game's overall round winner picked only 1 category winner. And in fact out of the top 10 only one (8th place) picked two. 1-7 & 9 picked one winner, 10 (Flyn Vega) had none.

    Near as I can tell no one picked the winners in all three categories....

    No one on our league picked more than one category winner...

    The Springnationals round is in the books, and it was another tough week with solid picks going out early, and that resulted in another low scoring round....

    This week it was yours truly, Willy Racing at the top with a sorry ass 517. Overall game high was 580.

    This low scoring round also shook up the top places on the sheet, with Suzukiray taking over the top spot.

    Can't pick winners for anything this year. The top dogs are going out early.

    Don't even want to look at my total, but I'm on my way to do that now.

    Yep.... SlicksChick with 588, and man did she get lucky.

    In other news, Sf1972 goes around Suzukiray to head our list, and not only that takes over the top spot in the entire game.

    Good job to both of you!

    Points have been corrected and here are the results.

    For Round 7 it's Flyn Vega on top with 552.

    Great job in another race with several early round upsets. This unpredictable season has tightened the gaps throughout the standings. No clear favorite a quarter of the way in....

    I also got super analytical. It worked the season I won. And it failed me miserably the next two.... :confused:

    ...since then I spend about 5 minutes selecting my picks and I've elevated my game enough that I'm now a solid mid-pack player. :D

    Best of luck Champ! ;)

    Willy,

    Has anyone from this forum ended the season in 1st place in the overall game? I have been following the results for a few years and it is very interesting. I'd play if I felt I could remember to submit picks even half the weeks.

    No, Stocker, but some have finished in the top 5.

    As for playing and reminders, the Commish from FMFL emails reminders the Wednesday before a race weekend. We'll post them here also. Sign up! We'll be happy to have you.

    Well, that was something!

    Sf1972 wins for the second week in a row, by a big margin with a 690.

    He not only did that, but also was the top scorer in the overall game, and is gapping the rest our field while climbing back up to 3 in the game's season standings.... Great pickin' Scott!

    The Mile High Nationals is complete, and in Round 14 the big winner is Stealth Racing. Bobby had a well picked 552 points to take the round and moves up to 5th in the standings.

    Speaking of the standings....It's tighter than ever. 506 points separates 1-8. With 10 races to go, and given the unpredictable nature of this season, any one of these players has a realistic shot at the season title.

    Resolved....

    Kalitta was the only error. Points added for players who picked him.

    As for the rest of this round, Willy Racing somehow put some above average numbers on the board. 624 does it....
