IRL Fantasy League Update:

This weekend's race is at the Michigan International Speedway on Sunday. That means driver lineups are due by tomorrow (Saturday). For the first time in over 5 years, I will not be able to attend this race. My niece is being baptized on Sunday, so we all know which is more important. As a consolation, it looks as though I'll be going to the August NASCAR race. So things aren't so bad.

IRL Fantasy League Update:

I know it's been a whole week since the race ran and results were posted, but the podium for last week's race in Kansas looked like this:

1. Lambros Entry
2. Mean Machine
3. Whizzing Wheels

Lambros Entry posted its first victory, last week, largely due to strong finishes from the entire team, including a 2nd place finish from Helio Castroneves. Mean Machine suffered a setback due to some early retirements and troubles from some of the more promising drivers. Kanaan and Dixon finished 4th and 6th, but the other 3 drivers failed to crack the top 15. Whizzing Wheels posted good results with drivers averaging a finish just over 9th place.

With a strong run of results over the last couple of weeks the overall season standings are changing. The current season podium looks like this:
1. Mean Machine
2. Lambros Entry
3. Whizzing Wheels

The season is now in the heart of summer, and just past the halfway point, so look for the points battle to really heat up. Good luck.

Note: This week's race is on Saturday. If you haven't already done so, go to the Fantasy site to make lineup changes, now. Today is the deadline for this week!!
