LFN Results–Atlanta: One week to go until the playoffs

Uh oh 5-time

Happy Labor Day to all!  A fairly exciting race last night sets the stage for the final week of the regular season.  Let’s get right into the results and lay out the playoff/division scenarios.

  • Busch Whackers def. Pecos Flames, 104.50-71.00
  • Buzz def. Shake and Bake, 68.50-54.00
  • Fender Benders def. Conn’s Bastards, 100.50-64.75
  • Barqs Motorsports def. T-Bone, 71.25-52.50
  • Yooper Drive def. Chandler Smoke, 83.25-82.50

Skin: Kyle Busch (Busch Whackers), $5

Good news if you have 13 wins because you are in the playoffs!  The 5 teams with 13 wins are in: Busch Whackers, Yooper Drive, T-Bone, Chandler Smoke, and Fender Benders.  Holding on to the 6th and final spot is Barqs Motorsports with 3 teams at 11 wins.  So…here are some scenarios:

  • Fender Benders holds the current division lead as they hold a 3-1 head to head advantage over Yooper Drive; if they win this week against Chandler Smoke they clinch division and #2 seed/bye.
  • If Yooper Drive wins with a FB loss, they win the division and get the bye
  • Barqs plays BW this week; if they win they are in.  They can’t win the division as FB holds a 3-1 head to head advantage over them.  If they lose, the only 11 win team that has a chance is Conn’s Bastards; they are 1-1 vs. Barqs, but would need to score a ton of points to outscore Barqs.  Shake and Bake are too far back on points to have a chance.
  • Chandler Smoke holds a 3-1 head to head over T-Bone
  • Yooper Drive holds a 2-0 head to head over Chandler Smoke and is 1-1 with T-Bone

Confused yet?  Me too!
