        These picks let me down at Pomona. Could they let me down two events in a row?
        I'm picking them so they sure could!

          Congratulations to 'Back in Time' (FABO) for winning the 'Top Qualifier' title for the Menards Nationals with a very nice total of 22.0 bonus points.
          He picked the #1 qualifier in Top Fuel, the #2 qualifier in Pro Stock and the #4 qualifier in Funny Car.
          'johnnycuda' (FABO) grabbed the runner-up qualifier spot with 21.0 bonus points.
          'Budnicks' was the top FBBO qualifier with 18.0 bonus points.
          Great picks all!

          We have 14 players this week and 10 different driver combos made up of:
          * 3 different Top Fuel drivers with no head-to-head matchup in opening round of eliminations. The earliest possibility of a head-to-head matchup is in the semi-final round of eliminations if both drivers survive the first two rounds.
          * 4 different Funny Car drivers with no head-to-head matchups in the opening round of eliminations. There is a possibility of a head-to-head matchup in the 2nd round of eliminations if both drivers survive Round 1.
          * 3 different Pro Stock drivers. The earliest possibility of a head-to-head matchup would be the second round of eliminations if the drivers survive that long.

          Good luck all!

                  Live coverage of Q1 qualifying at Brainerd is scheduled to be shown on FOX Sports 1 at 7pm EDT (4pm PDT) today.
                  The current weather forecast for the start of Q1 is for 83F and partly sunny.
                  The forecast for Q2 is for much cooler temps of 68F and partly sunny, and Q3 forecast is for 69F and sunny.
                  The forecast for Sunday eliminations is just a few degrees warmer than Saturday and sunny.
                  Should be a good racing weekend.
