LFN Results – Richmond: The playoff field is set! And the final 6 are…?

Matt-Kenseth

The NASCAR regular season is over, and the Chase is on!  We all watched the race…right?  Actually, I did, and the late passes by JR and Menard doomed me.  Collecting yet another skin, Yooper Drive, as Kenseth rolls to victory:

  • Fender Benders def. Newmanium, 78.00-75.50
  • T-Bone def. Up In Dillon, 66.25-64.50
  • Shake and Bake def. Barqs Motorsports, 68.00-54.75
  • Yooper Drive def. Buschlouseski Racing, 90.50-84.25
  • Buzz def. TRiM, 95.25-71.75

Skin:  Matt Kenseth (Yooper Drive, $5)

Now…it’s time for the math.  Thankfully for me, this part will be going away next year as we will be moving to a different format/website.  For this year, here we go; we have a tie for the Petty Division, Yooper Drive and Newmanium at 15-11.  First tiebreaker for everything is head-to-head:

  • Yooper Driver def. Newmanium, 3-1

This gives the division title and first round bye to Yooper Drive, congrats!  Now to the final two spots of the playoff field.  We have 4 teams tied at 12-14.  We go to the head-to-head between all four teams:

  • Fender Benders: 5-3
  • T-Bone: 4-4
  • Buzz: 4-4
  • Up In Dillon: 3-5

Fender Benders gets the 5th seed. Now we look at the head to head between T-Bone and Buzz:

  • T-Bone def. Buzz, 3-1

T-Bone advances as the 6th seed.  Incredible run by Buzz once Kyle Busch came back, but the early head-to-head matchups hurt in this case.  Too much math.  Plus, Shake and Bake takes Barqs Motorsports in head-to-head as well.  TRiM and Yooper Drive with the byes, everyone else plays (including non-playoff teams) for the next 3 weeks.
