NASCAR Fantasy game: Post-Darlington update

Take a look at this list of the nine people who correctly predicted Kevin Harvick would win the Southern 500:

dlschamp **
1kfox *
3dingo *
folimu *
HD388 *
hzirbel *
jvirgs *
kycasoup *
turbojunker *

Notice anything? Yep, that’s right — eight of the nine players hadn’t previously picked a winner correctly this season. Those eight new Fantasy Chase entrants bring the total number of players to 148 (out of 326) — and we’re still less than one-third through the regular season.

Here’s how the Fantasy Chase field looks as of now. We’ll get to your Richmond picks next week after Easter. Enjoy the break!

NASCAR Fantasy game: Post-Texas, pre-Darlington update

I wasn’t sure many people would have Joey Logano at Texas, but it turns out eight smarty-pants players picked the winner correctly last week. Three of those were first-time winners and are now in the Chase — @goofyfordfan, @nuggie99 and @richman43. But two others — @katiecole125 and @jay_wilkins17 — joined the exclusive three-time winner club (four people are tied for the most wins with three).

For those of us who haven’t won yet, it seems hard to believe that anyone could pick three winners in the first seven races in ANY kind of contest, let alone one where you can only use a driver one time all year. But they did!

Now let’s move on to your picks for Darlington. The top vote-getters are seven-time Darlington winner Jeff Gordon and zero-time Darlington winner Martin Truex Jr. with 34 picks each.

The Gordon selection is obvious. But why Truex? I’m not totally sure — he only has one top-five there — but my theory is people remember Furniture Row Racing winning there with Regan Smith, so they figure Truex might be able to do the same.

Here are all the Darlington picks:

NASCAR Fantasy Game: Post-Martinsville, pre-Texas update

Only five people out of 326 had Kurt Busch winning Sunday’s Martinsville race, which is the second-lowest total of the year (only two people picked Carl Edwards to win at Bristol).

Of those five, four players had not previously won a race. So welcome to the Fantasy Chase, @MrsDMVH, @s_a_markle, @ToeNailUrFace and @ZTsmiley. @DallasJuneBug picked up her second win of the year already (she also had Kevin Harvick winning at Phoenix).

The Martinsville winners:

Let’s move on to Texas. Unlike a place like Martinsville or Dover or Sonoma, there are no clear favorites at Texas. As a result, the picks are quite fractured.

Greg Biffle is the top selection (43 people), followed by Matt Kenseth (38), Austin Dillon (25) and Carl Edwards (24). The Dillon pick is surprising, but think about it in this sense: People are looking for someone aside from the major drivers who could at intermediate tracks, and Dillon is a decent darkhorse pick.

Miguel Cabrera sparks personal treasure hunt

This week’s news that baseball megastar Miguel Cabrera signed a record $292 million contract extension with the Detroit Tigers sent me on a treasure hunt of sorts.

It wasn’t the kind of treasure any of Cabrera’s millions could buy (though I certainly wouldn’t mind that), but just an old copy of the Rocky Mount (N.C.) Telegram stuck between the fading stacks of newspapers in my garage. After about 20 minutes of sifting through old stories about high school sports and college basketball, I found it: Cabrera waiting for the call from June 4, 2003.

The Telegram was my first full-time newspaper job, and I viewed living in rural eastern North Carolina as a training ground for what I hoped would be my eventual gig as a Major League Baseball writer. I was all about baseball at the time (I’d just finished a spring training internship for the Philadelphia Phillies) and I dreamed of traveling the country covering ballgames.

So the Double-A Carolina Mudcats, located in nearby Zebulon, seemed like a really huge deal to my 22-year-old self. It certainly didn’t hurt knowing the Mudcats were full of big-time Florida Marlins prospects in 2003 — and I was covering them about once a week.

Cabrera, an unbelievably talented 20-year-old, was the team’s top prospect along with pitcher Dontrelle Willis. Cabrera had already been labeled as a future star, and there was talk the Marlins might call him straight up from Double-A to the big leagues later that year.

Since Cabrera was starting to get attention, the team scheduled a media event at the North Raleigh Hilton’s Skybox Grill. I was dying to go, so I made a deal with sports editor Ted Newman: Let me go talk to Cabrera and I’d promise to get back to Rocky Mount in time to cover the city’s 8-year-old girls softball championship game that night.

Ted gave me the green light, so I drove to Raleigh (about an hour away) and waited my turn to sit with Cabrera on bar stools at a high-top table.

I don’t remember that much about the interview, other than it mostly sucked. Cabrera spoke broken English and I asked him broken questions. He brought his then-girlfriend Rosangel with him (they later married) but she didn’t speak much English, either.

The result was a ho-hum article about a future star who said he was “very excited” about the opportunity to play in the big leagues someday (breaking news!) and said it would be “the best day in my life” when it happened.

It wasn’t very good, but the Cabrera interview was still better than one I did for our big sports story of the day. An 8-year-old girl ran away from me crying when I tried to interview her after the softball championship game, so I settled for interviewing the coaches instead.

The June 4, 2003 sports section of the Rocky Mount Telegram.

Anyway, I would have never guessed that just two weeks later, Cabrera would be called up to the Marlins. The game where he made his MLB debut was somehow on TV, and we all watched in the newsroom that night while we put out the paper.

It was surreal for me, almost magical. I wasn’t experienced enough at the time to wrap my head around suddenly seeing someone on TV who had just been playing in front of a few hundred fans at a middle-of-nowhere ballpark.

And then this happened:

Yes, Cabrera had arrived. Baseball fans might already know the rest of story. Cabrera and the Marlins went on to beat the Chicago Cubs in the playoffs (the Bartman game!), then toppled the New York Yankees to win the World Series.

I figured I’d interview Cabrera again someday if I made it to the big leagues myself. But instead, I discovered NASCAR, became a racing writer and ultimately lost interest in baseball altogether.

Somehow, that change of plans has turned old articles like the Cabrera one into personal treasures. It might be just an average story on a piece of newsprint to anyone else, but it’s a souvenir from a past life to me.

NASCAR Fantasy game update: Post-Fontana, pre-Martinsville update

Only 21 people picked Kyle Busch to win the Fontana race, which was a bit surprising given he won last year there.

Anyway, it turned out to be a good decision. And it was particularly impressive for @Adam_Huth and @dwilwer, who picked up their THIRD WINS OF THE SEASON in just five races! Keep in mind there are probably many people who won’t win one time all year (me, probably).

Here are the people who picked Kyle Busch at Fontana:

As a side note, you might be wondering which unfortunate players spent their one Denny Hamlin pick for the year on a race he turned out not to be part of. Those 14 people were:

KABenn1616

Not surprisingly, Adam_Huth and dwilwer are leading the overall standings. What do they know that we don’t? Crazy! Eight more people were added to the Fantasy Chase thanks to their Kyle Busch pick, bringing the total to 133 out of 326 entries.

Now let’s turn our attention to Martinsville. It’s no shock the trendy picks focused on three drivers: Jeff Gordon (100 people), Jimmie Johnson (73) and Denny Hamlin (65). That’s 73 percent of all the picks spent on just three guys.

Fantasy NASCAR game: Post-Bristol, pre-Fontana update

There weren’t many takers for Concrete Carl’s win at Bristol Motor Speedway on Sunday night — a season-low two people had Edwards.

Sunday’s winners:

fnmetal *
jeffamos65 *

As you can see from the stars next to their names, that was the first win of the season for both. Bristol brings the total number of people in the Fantasy Chase to 125 (out of 326) . Here is everyone who has made it so far, plus the number of wins they have (again, indicated by a star):

Let’s move on to Fontana. Joey Logano is the favorite with 64 people picking him to win (they likely remember how he almost won last year and were looking for a good value track to use the No. 22 car). Jimmie Johnson got 43 votes to become the second-most picked driver this week.
