Our Creatures are back to their wining ways this week after two of them correctly picked Kyle Busch to concur the Bristol Motor Speedway on Saturday night. Busch held off Mark Martin for his fourth win of the year and moved closer to making the Chase for the Championship.
Our other Creatures were split between having decent nights and having a night to forget but the only thing that matters is winning and racking up the bonus points. Here’s how our Creatures stack up after the Sharpie 500 at Bristol.
Ben Bomberger (3,578) Kyle Busch won (2)
Kelly Crandall (3,376) Kurt Busch finished seventh (2)
Mary Jo Buchanan (3,238) Jeff Gordon finished 23rd (0)
SM Napier (3,156) Kevin Harvick finished 38th (2)
Adam Heasley (3,087) Dale Earnhardt Jr. finished ninth (3)
David Phillips (2,732) Jimmie Johnson finished eighth (2)
Kara Martin (1,982) Kyle Busch won (3)
James Broomhead (1,858) Kurt Busch finished seventh (2)
Mason Dunn (1,557) Mark Martin finished second (0)
Rob Tiongson (1,546) Clint Bowyer finished 21st (1)
Danielle Henderson (1,516) No pick sent (2)
Jen Preston (1,458) No pick sent (1)
Kyle Ocker (1,043) No pick sent (1)
The Sprint Cup Series takes their final weekend off for the 2009 season before heading to Atlanta Motor Speedway on Labor Day weekend. That gives our Creatures an extra week to decide whom they will be picking for the first ever night race in the Peach State.
There will also be two races remaining before the Chase, meaning our Creatures will only get to pick a driver once through the final ten races. Check back on Friday September 4 for our Creatures picks for the Pep Boys Auto 500 in Atlanta.
