ms2_mencs_actionshot_10.29.17

Wow. What a race that was. Kyle Busch is locked into the Championship round but the SuperSpeedway Fantasy league battles on!

Thanks in part to Denny Hamlin’s boot of Chase Elliott and Kyle Larson stinking up the show for a second consecutive week, Eric has recaptured the lead 1,657 to 1,608.

James’ team was wounded badly following another issue for Larson. Also, the Elliott spin and Kurt Busch wreck at the end of the race were costly at this point in the playoffs.

Eric’s team was dominant again this week with 5 drivers going over 30 points. The Toyota’s came through for his team at an unlikely spot, a short track.

RULES

  • Eric and James each picked 8 playoff drivers, draft style.
  • The total points earned by a driver throughout the playoffs will contribute to the team’s total.
  • Most points earned wins.
