Creature Vs. Creature Writers Pool: Results After Pocono

Kelly CrandallSenior Writer IAugust 4, 2009

The Sprint Cup Series was in Pocono this weekend for the Sunoco Red Cross Pennsylvania 500 for a race as long as it's name. 

Three of our creature writers correctly predicted the winner of the race, leaving just three other writers without a win.

After waiting out the rain for an extra day and after 500 long miles at Pocono, there were a few shake-ups in the standings. 

Here are the results and points after this weekend's race with the writer's points and wins in parenthesis. 

Ben Bomberger (3073) Juan Pablo Montoya finished second (1).

Kelly Crandall (2932) Mark Martin finished seventh (1).

M.J. Buchanan (2891) Kasey Kahne finished fifth (0).

S.M. Napier (2829) Tony Stewart finished tenth (2). 

Adam Heasley (2774) No pick sent (3).

David Phillips (2379) Jimmie Johnson finished 13th (2).

James Broomhead (1537) Denny Hamlin won (2).

Kara Martin (1432) Tony Stewart finished 10th (1).

Mason Dunn (1377) Tony Stewart finished 10th (0).

Danielle Henderson (1321) Denny Hamlin won (1).

Rob Tiongson (1320) Jimmie Johnson finished 13th (1).

Jen Preston (1143) Denny Hamlin won (1).

Kyle Ocker (848) No Pick Sent (0).

Next up comes the second and final road course of the season, Watkins Glen, leaving just four races until the cutoff for the Chase to the Championship. 

Once the Chase starts our writers will get an extra 10 bonus points for each win they have but they will be forced to pick a different driver for each of the final ten Chase races. 


Remember, all writers that usually send their picks to Ben Bomberger: starting this week they should now be sent to me.
