It was an interesting weekend for our esteemed panel of NASCAR writers.

Of the seven picks, five writers' picks finished inside the top-15 (of course, three of those picks were Jeff Gordon), and David Phillips correctly picked Kyle Busch as the winner.

The points were shaken up as M.J. Buchanan took over the lead from SM Napier, who's pick of Kevin Harvick recorded the worst finish among the group. Adam Heasley jumped over yours truly (Ben Bomberger), and the bottom three stayed the same.

(Prior to this week, S.M. had chosen the top driver three times, and the second place driver the other week.)

Here are a look at the new standings:

MJ Buchanan—Jeff Gordon, finished fourth, 770 points.

S.M. Napier—Kevin Harvick, finished 30th, 768 points and one win.

Adam Heasley—Jeff Gordon, finished fourth, 710 points and one win.

Ben Bomberger—Brian Vickers, finished 29th, 673 points.

David Phillips—Kyle Busch, won the race, 626 points and one win.

Kelly Crandall—Jeff Gordon, finished fourth, 548 points.

LJ Burgess—Carl Edwards, finished 15th, 456 points.
