One week is behind us and our seven NASCAR writers already have large gaps between them. Early in the race it appeared at least one of our Creatures would be celebrating in Victory Lane with their pick on Sunday, but in the end they all fell short.
Taking the B/R Championship lead following Week 1 is S.M. Napier. His pick of Kevin Harvick led the field (of the seven drivers selected) and collected the most points.
Here is a recap of Week 1:
S.M. Napier — Kevin Harvick, finished second, 170 points.
Ben Bomberger — Tony Stewart, finished eighth, 147 points.
MJ Buchanan — Jeff Gordon, finished 12th, 129 points.
David Phillips — Mark Martin, finished 15th, 120 points.
Adam Heasley — Dale Earnhardt Jr., finished 26th, 87 points.
LJ Burgess — Jamie McMurray, finished 37th, 52 points.
Kelly Crandall — Kyle Busch, finished 38th, 50 points.
Check back Friday before noon for California picks.
