Well you see, Bench. I put a lot of critical thinking and analysis into my selections. This is a serious game here. There are maybe 10 guys who will finish top 5, but I can only pick 5.
Alex and Jim have had about as good as a season that you could have. So they have to be in there. *but now I agree with mpr. Jim will probably suck. So I will add Buras or MC Hammer in. Truthfully, I didn't even see Michael Carter's name in there when I first looked but he has had a phenomenal year as well.
Todd Lamb: well...its Todd lamb. he can go fast literally anywhere and proves it every time.
Kicera: first time back in his car, and not a Flatout rental, so I think he will be in there. And have you seen that resume on mazdaracers? Impressive.
Pmoney Pardus. He is the real deal. The Truth. The legend. And he is just playing games with us, hustling us, and waiting for the right time to show us that we all suck. He is a good guy and doesn't want us to all quit and move to STL, but he will dominate soon at his choosing. So he will always be in my top 5.
Daniel Steyn: Reason I didn't pick Daniel is not because of any personal reason. But If you look at the stats: Finishes are 8,4,6,4,7,7,4,6 (not counting Road ATL cause there wasn't many people there where he finished P2 and P3). He is right on the cusp of top 5 in races with a lot of names. so I have him a solid P6 but maybe he will prove me wrong
