    Somebody find my calendar!
    Let me get this straight...the 'SpringNationals' are after the 'FallNationals'? And just one week before Daylight Savings Time ends?
    2020 has just been a disaster and extremely forgettable!

      I always felt if Alex Laughlin could get more money and a solid ride he might be someone to look out for.

        Congratulations to 'stroked340' (FABO) for winning the Covid-delayed, and very out-of-season, 2020 Mopar Express Lane SpringNationals 'Top Qualifier' title with an almost perfect total of 31.0 bonus points. He picked the #1 qualifiers in both Top Fuel and Pro Stock Motorcycle, and the #2 qualifiers in both Funny Car and Pro Stock. Way to go!
        'alsant' (FBBO), 'cuda20' (FABO), 'Duster79' (FABO) and 'R413' (FBBO) shared the #2 qualifier spot with 30.5 bonus points each.

        More great picks!

        We have 15 players for the 10th event of the 2020 NHRA "Pick 'Em game season and 13 different driver combos made up of:
        * 5 different Top Fuel drivers with no Round 1 head-to-head matchups. There could be two head-to-head matchups in the 2nd round of eliminations if all four drivers survive the opening round of competition.
        * Only 3 different Funny Car drivers with no Round 1 head-to-head matchups. The first possibility of a head-to-head matchup would be in the semi-final round of eliminations.
        * 5 different Pro Stock drivers with one Round 1 head-to-head matchup between #7 qualifier Jason Line (3 picks) and #10 qualifier Chris McGaha (1 pick). There could be two head-to-head matchups in the 2nd round of eliminations as all picks are in the bottom half of the bracket.

        * 5 different Pro Stock Motorcycle drivers with no Round 1 head-to-head matchups. There could be one head-to-head matchup in the 2nd round of eliminations.


        Good luck all in eliminations!

            Congratulations to 'Budnicks' (FBBO), 'Nick2317' (FBBO) and 'stroked340' (FABO) for sharing the 2020 Mopar Finals 'Top Qualifier' title with an outstanding total of 30.5 bonus points each. 'Budnicks' picked the #1 qualifier in Funny Car and the #2 qualifiers in Top Fuel, Pro Stock and Pro Stock Motorcycle. 'Nick2317' and 'stroked340' went a slightly different route by picking the #1 qualifier in Pro Stock Motorcycle and the #2 qualifiers in Top Fuel, Funny Car and Pro Stock. Way to go!
            'johnnycuda' (FABO) grabbed the runner-up spot with 27.5 bonus points.

            More great picks!

            We have 15 players for the final event of the 2020 NHRA "Pick 'Em game season and 13 different driver combos made up of:
            * 5 different Top Fuel drivers with no Round 1 head-to-head matchups. There could be one head-to-head matchup in the 2nd round of eliminations if both drivers survive the opening round of competition.
            * 4 different Funny Car drivers with no Round 1 head-to-head matchups. There could be one head-to-head matchup in the 2nd round of eliminations.
            * 4 different Pro Stock drivers with two Round 1 head-to-head matchups. One between #5 qualifier Alex Laughlin (1 pick) and #12 qualifier Erica Enders (4 picks). and the other between #8 qualifier Aaron Stanfield (1 pick) and #8 qualifier Jeg Coughlin Jr. (1 pick). There could be one head-to-head matchup in the 2nd round of eliminations as both drivers survive until then.

            * 6different Pro Stock Motorcycle drivers with one Round 1 head-to-head matchup between #2 qualifier Matt Smith (5 picks) and #15 qualifier Angelle Sampey (1 pick). There could be one head-to-head matchup in the 2nd round of eliminations.

            Now we have 18 weeks to rest up and get more done on our Mopars each weekend.
            The 2021 NHRA season kicks off with the AMALIE Motor Oil NHRA Gatornationals, March 12-14, at Gainesville Raceway in Gainesville, FL.
            I can't wait!
            Watch for the 2021 game notice post sometime in February.

            Thanks for playing and Happy Holidays all!

                My pleasure.
                I'm just glad y'all enjoy it. Get some of your FABO/FBBO buddies to climb on board next year. The more the merrier!

                    Congrats to Graham Rahal and Courtney Force on the birth of their daughter, Harlan Ann Rahal, on Nov. 2nd.
                    7 lbs. 13 oz. 21.25"
                    I wonder if John has the Jr. Dragster chassis started yet.


                    Congrats Graham and Courtney
