For the first time this season, two users picked the winner of the race. Ed Carpenter's first triumph of the season gives us the first split of first-place points since Long Beach. NeverNeutral adds to his already large haul with another 45 points, while RandomClassic's 45 points puts him on the board. Will Power's second-place finish nets Nelson a full 60 points since he was the only user to pick the Aussie, so, although NeverNeutral added to his point total, Nelson actually gained some ground in the standings. No one picked third-place finisher Juan Pablo Montoya or fourth-place finisher Simon Pagenaud, so, we skip to fifth-place finisher Scott Dixon, whom Packer picked, and Packer picks up the full 30 points for third, his first since Alabama.

The standings after Texas:

1. NeverNeutral - 315
2. Spannerhead29 (Nelson) - 195
3. BWardboy88 & PackerMan71 - 135
4. CRL & flyingturns89 - 120
5. f1fan12 - 105
6. Ben Atkins - 90
7. navycook75 & bsouyz - 60
8. RandomClassic - 45
9. Alta, racer612008, & FlashRod4 - 30

Picks for Houston open Monday, June 23.

More YEEHAW! as Houston plays host to what will be a doubleheader held in the extreme Texas Summer heat. Again, since it's a doubleheader, average finishes will determine who gets the points.

Scott Dixon

Well, it was not a pretty weekend for our picks. Only one of the five drivers picked actually finished in the Top 5 in one of the two races (Simon Pagenaud winning Race 2). Anyway, Packer's pick, Ryan Hunter-Reay, had the best average finish of the selected drivers, so, he collects the full 90 points for first-place. Ben gets the full 60 points for second, as his pick, Simon Pagenaud, had an average finish on the weekend of 8.5. Nelson and Barney's pick, Will Power, had the third-best average finish on the weekend of all drivers picked with 12.5, so Barney and Rubbut will split the third-place points for 15 each. The other two drivers picked, Helio Castroneves and Scott Dixon, had average finishes of 15th and 18.5, respectively. Here are the standings after 10 races:

1. NeverNeutral - 315
2. PackerMan71 - 225
3. Spannerhead29 (Nelson) - 210
4. BWardboy88 & Ben Atkins - 150
5. CRL & flyingturns89 - 120
6. f1fan12 - 105
7. navycook75 & bsouyz - 60
8. RandomClassic - 45
9. Alta, racer612008, & FlashRod4 - 30


Picks for Pocono are open in the next post.

Race 2 in IndyCar's Triple Crown is this weekend in Pocono. Last year, Scott Dixon's official run to the title started with a win here. Remember, since this is one of the Triple Crown races, points this weekend are doubled, and, once again, there is a bonus point opportunity, which this time, will be worth 60 points.

Use this form in your post:

Driver you're picking this weekend:
Who will win the Indy Lights race on Saturday?:
How many cautions will we have on Sunday?:

The second question is the bonus point opportunity. The third question will be used as a tiebreaker for the bonus point opportunity.

Driver you're picking this weekend: Carlos Munoz
Who will win the Indy Lights race on Saturday?: Matthew Brabham
How many cautions will we have on Sunday?: 7

Well, I'd say this is the wildest weekend yet. We've had a change at the top. No one selected the race winner, Juan Pablo Montoya, so, Packer picks up 180 points for first as his pick, Helio Castroneves, and, he takes back the lead in the standings, the first change at the top since after the Indy 500. I was the only one to pick third-place finisher Carlos Munoz, so, that's 120 points to me, my first time scoring points since the Indy 500, where my pick there (Helio) also finished second. Now, to award third-place points, we've got to go down quite a ways in the Top 10. No one picked any of the drivers who finished in positions 4-8 (Ryan Briscoe, Scott Dixon, Simon Pagenaud, Mikhail Aleshin, and Josef Newgarden), so Ben picks up 60 points for third since his pick, Marco Andretti, finished ninth.

Now, for the bonus points. Despite losing the points lead, NeverNeutral still has a good-scoring weekend, as he collects the 60 points for correctly picking Gabby Chaves to win the Indy Lights race on Saturday. Packer also picked Chaves, but, the bonus points only go to one person. The tiebreaker for the bonus points was guessing how many cautions there would be in the big show. There was only one, and NeverNeutral said there would be two, thus, he gets the 60 bonus points.

The standings, where things are getting interesting at the top:

1. PackerMan71 - 385
2. NeverNeutral - 375
3. CRL - 240
4. Spannerhead29 (Nelson) & Ben Atkins - 210
5. BWardboy88 - 150
6. flyingturns89 - 120
7. f1fan12 - 105
8. navycook75 & bsouyz - 60
9. RandomClassic - 45
10. Alta, racer612008, & FlashRod4 - 30


Picks for Saturday night's race at Iowa will open later tonight. Remember, there's one more double points round this season, our season finale in Fontana.

Well, much like RHR and Josef tonight, two people who badly needed a result in this game got one. Leckliter wins the week, as his pick, RHR, stormed through the field on fresh rubber to pick up his third win of the season. Dan gets the full 90 points, as he was the only one to pick Hunter-Reay. f1fan12 went out on a limb in picking Josef Newgarden, and it paid off, as he gets the full 60 points for second. Unfortunately for everyone, Packer was the only one to pick third-place finisher Tony Kanaan, netting him the full 30 points for third, extending his lead in the points. The season is not over yet, though.

The standings after Iowa:

1. PackerMan71 - 415
2. NeverNeutral - 375
3. CRL - 240
4. Spannerhead29 (Nelson) & Ben Atkins - 210
5. f1fan12 - 165
6. BWardboy88 & navycook75 - 150
7. flyingturns89 - 120
8. bsouyz - 60
9. RandomClassic - 45
10. Alta, racer612008, & FlashRod4 - 30

The picks for Toronto, the last doubleheader of the year, meaning the last weekend of the year where average finish will decide who gets the points, open on Monday night.

Time for the last doubleheader of the season in Toronto. When this weekend is over, there will be four races remaining. Again, your pick's average finish determines who gets the points for the weekend.

Well, going on a limb helped me out last time... But this time I'll be a bit more conservative.

Well, something unprecedented happened this weekend - we had a tie between two different drivers based on average position. We'll get to that in a second. Alta wins the weekend, scoring his first points since Long Beach, as his pick, Tony Kanaan, had the best average finish of all drivers who were selected with a 2.5 (3rd in Race 1, 2nd in Race 2), so, Eric gets the full 90. 

Now, here's our unique situation: both Will Power (picked by NeverNeutral and Nelson) and Scott Dixon (picked by Packer) had an average finish of 6th on the weekend (Power finished 9th in Race 1, and 3rd in Race 2; Dixon finished 5th in Race 1, and 7th in Race 2). I have decided to break the tie by awarding the points to the user(s) whose driver had the best finish in either of the two races, meaning Power's podium in Race 2 nets NeverNeutral and Nelson 30 points each, tightening things up at the top again.

Helio Castroneves had the third best average finish on the weekend of 7th (2nd in Race 1, 12th in Race 2), meaning Gabe gets his first points since the Indy GP, as he gets the full 30 for third.

The standings with four races to go:

1. PackerMan71 - 415
2. NeverNeutral - 405
3. CRL & Spannerhead29 (Nelson) - 240
4. Ben Atkins - 210
5. f1fan12 - 165
6. BWardboy88 & navycook75 - 150
7. flyingturns89 & Alta - 120
8. bsouyz - 90
9. RandomClassic - 45
10. racer612008, & FlashRod4 - 30

Picks for Mid-Ohio open up a week from tomorrow night.

There are, that I know of, 540 maximum points left to be scored in this game (three regular rounds, plus double points in Fontana, plus a 90-points bonus opportunity for Fontana, plus, I may throw out a bonus point opportunity before Fontana). Every single person who has played this game is still in contention for the championship, so, keep playing, and if you haven't played yet and have been thinking about it, well, you, too, can still win the title going into Mid-Ohio.

BTW, the average finishers for the other drivers picked by you guys:
Justin Wilson - 10th (JW finished 10th in both races)
Marco Andretti - 12th (16th in Race 1, 8th in Race 2)
Takuma Sato - 14th (23rd in Race 1, 5th in Race 2)
Luca Filippi - 19th (22nd in Race 1, 16th in Race 2) No
