LFN Results–Atlanta: With the playoffs approaching, top teams flex some muscle

Big thumbs up to the #24

Another race that no working person gets to see; I totally forgot about it until 3 pm this afternoon!  Good ol’ Jeff Gordon gets the win, pretty impressive with 85 wins, 3rd all-time.  Unfortunately for Yooper Drive, it still wasn’t enough to take down #1 Buzz.  Good news for Ol’ 2-Time: $30 in skins money this year.

  • FenderBenders def. Donnie Barqs, 134-128
  • Buzz def. Yooper Drive, 124-121
  • T-Bone def. Shake and Bake, 130-112
  • GMNY Racing def. Mike’s Bastards, 137-122
  • Pecos Flames def. Chandler Smoke, 128-108

Skin: Jeff Gordon (Yooper Drive), $5

The playoff field is shaping up; 4 teams have clinched: Buzz, GMNY Racing, Donnie Barqs, and T-Bone.  Several teams are fairly close in record, and when it comes to playoff seeding and who makes it, HEAD-TO-HEAD is the first tie-breaker!  KNOW THE RULES. 

In the Petty Division: If Shake and Bake wins this week, they clinch.  Even if they lose and either FenderBenders or Chandler Smoke win, it will go to a tiebreaker, of which the first tiebreaker is head-to-head, and Shake and Bake leads both teams in that category. 

In the Earnhardt division:  Buzz and GMNY Racing are tied in record and in head-to-head, but Buzz leads in points.  If they both lose and either Donnie Barqs and T-Bone win, goes to tie-breaker for head-to-head. Should make for an exciting week!

I will be setting up a loser’s bracket for those who don’t make the playoffs; teams #7 and #8 will get a bye, very similar to Toilet Bowl settings in Football.

  1. Buzz, 15-10-0, 3,221 pts
