Creature vs. Creature Writers Pool: Results After Watkins Glen

Kelly CrandallSenior Writer IAugust 11, 2009

For the fifth straight race our Creatures showed they know their NASCAR by correctly picking the winner of the Heluva Good! Sour Cream Dips at the Glen.

After once again waiting out the rain the Sprint Cup Series put on one Heluva race at Watkins Glen with points leader Tony Stewart earning his third win of the season and his fifth at Watkins Glen.

Four of our Creatures picked Stewart this week, with three other Creatures picking Marcos Ambrose who chased Stewart to the checkered flag. That means our point standings and win totals have really tightened up after this week.

Here are the updated point standings and win totals for our Creatures after Monday’s race in Watkins Glen.

Ben Bomberger (3223) Juan Pablo Montoya Finished sixth (1)

Kelly Crandall (3127) Tony Stewart Won (2)

Next up is the two-mile oval, Michigan International Speedway, which will bring us within four races of the Chase for the Championship. Our Creatures have four more races to pick whomever they wish before being limited to only one driver in the Chase.

Will it be six straight races with a correct winner? Check back on Friday for our Creatures picks for the Carfax 400.
