Kansas Predictions

I did this back before the 'Dega race. I figured I would try the same thing for Kansas. This list only goes back two races because those two are the only ones where there were head-to-head matches between all of the drivers. It takes the average finishes over that period. Frankly, I was surprised at how accurate it turned out to be. Between 8 of the 10 drivers the standing was the same or off by only one. Only two drivers, Johnson and Kenseth, had a large jump - or drop.

Of course, "the curse" changed things as well...

IF the drivers finish with their average. Earnhardt comes out of Kansas leading Gordon by 1 point in the standings. Ryan Newman will move within 100 points of the leader. Jeremy Mayfield will fall to 236 points back.

We'll see what actually happens. That is why they race the race.

Sorry for the non-sequitor but I am writing to others that have mentioned this "group" in the past to see if you can help me find out the truth here...

It seems that is now taking donations and running their ads. OR so they say. I don't believe it for one second.

Plus, I think they are fraudulently taking money from the knotheads who might think the ads would be a good idea. (Maybe poetic justice, but still not good.)

I'm just looking for one person who has actually seen one of the ads on T.V. (Fat chance.)
