Human Versus Cat Round 12

Yes, I've been slacking off posting Nascar results. If you don't know what this series is about, this post explains it.

Actually, the Michigan race picks were quite interesting. Here is how it all played out:

Gracie's picks:

31 (Jeff Burton) 68 points
27 (Paul Menard) 30 points
78 (Kurt Busch) 10 points
5 (Kasey Kahne) 7 points
18 (Kyle Busch) 40 points

Total: 155 points.

Now, while this total might not seem impressive, she actually picked four drivers who practiced in the top 5. Too bad the race played out a little differently, but all were pretty strong drivers.

Her point total of  1689 moved her up slightly in the standings (for all Nascar on Fox league players) to 41.6 percent. In the Brad Keselowski league that ranked her 747 out of 1211. Remember that her stats are skewed because I did not have her "play" the first 3 races of the season.

My picks:

5 (Kasey Kahne) 14 points
99 (Carl Edwards) 37 points
88 (Dale Earnhardt) 8 points
16 (Greg Biffle) 48 points
22 (Joey Logano) 36 points

Total: 143 points

Dale Jr. blowing a motor killed my points, even though I picked the race winner (Greg Biffle) and guess what: The cat beat me by 12 points!

After this race, I dropped to 67.5 percent for all Nascar on Fox players with a point total of 2570 for the season. In the Ryan Newman league I was ranked 148 out of 412, another drop over last week.
