Creature vs. Creature NASCAR Writers Pool: Results After Pocono 500

Ben BombergerSenior Writer IJune 8, 2009

The Tricky Triangle was tamed by Tony Stewart—wow that's a lot of T's in there?

Stewart picked up his first points paying win as an owner-driver on Sunday, and two of our newest additions to the Creature vs. Creature weekly NASCAR picks collected their first wins as well.

Both Kara Martin and Rob Tiongson correctly picked Stewart to bring home the checkered flag on Sunday, and each earned themselves 10 bonus points when the Chase starts in September.

At the top of the points, leader M.J. Buchanan's gap was closed to 38 points, as her selection of Brian Vickers finished 21st, and second-place Kelly Crandall's selection of Jimmie Johnson brought his No. 48 Lowe's Chevy home in seventh.

With the Pocono weekend behind us, our Bleacher Creatures look ahead to the two-mile track in the state of Michigan.

Here is a look at each writer's pick, where they finished, and the updated point standings (wins are in parenthesis):

M.J. Buchanan, (2040) Vickers finished 21st. (0)

Kelly Crandall, (2002) Johnson finished seventh. (1)

Ben Bomberger, (1971) Edwards finished second. (0)

Adam Heasley, (1924) Earnhardt Jr. finished 27th. (2)

S.M. Napier, (1775) Hamlin finished 38th. (2)

David Phillips, (1669) Vickers finished 21st. (1)

Kara Martin, (438) Stewart finished first. (1)

Mason Dunn, (437) Martin finished 19th. (0)

Rob Tiongson, (405) Stewart finished first. (1)

James Broomhead, (378) Hamlin finished 38th. (0)

Danielle Henderson, (330) Earnhardt Jr. finished 27th. (0)

Kyle Ocker, (329) Hamlin finished 38th. (0)

Jen Preston, (189) Hamlin finished 38th. (0)

Remember, during the regular season, our writers are trying to collect as many wins as possible.

After Richmond, points will be reset with each writer receiving 10 points for correctly picking a winner during the season.

For the final 10 races, the points will matter, and a Creature vs. Creature Champion will be crowned following the season finale in Homestead.

Check back on Friday for this weekend's picks.
