Our NASCAR Pick 3 has reached the Chase of the Championship!  Scuba’s Bar and Grill in Appleton is on board this season challenging you to beat the experts!

Every week, on WSCO, Alex Hayden of MRN Radio & Ben Brust of the Badgers join Justin Hull to talk NASCAR.  At the end the conversation, one listener will be chosen to call in and pick 3 drivers for the Sprint Cup Race that weekend.  After that, our expert panel of Alex, Ben, Justin and Justin’s Dad will pick their 3 for the race.

It’s golf style scoring so the lower the scorer, the better.  You get points for whatever position each of your drivers finish.  If you pick the winning driver, we subtract 5-points from your total.  If the listener beats 3 of 4 or sweeps the panel, it’s a $25 Gift Card to Scuba’s.  If you beat just one, it’s a $10 Gift Card to Scuba’s.

Here are the week 27 results:

1st place: Dad
Brad Keslowski - -5
Joey Lagano - 4
Kevin Harvick – 5

PICKS BREAKDOWN:

Clean Sweep - Last Week, teams were 3-2 when everyone picked them.  San Francisco, Denver, Green Bay, New Orleans, Tampa Bay, and Seattle should all be on upset alert...

On an Island - Last week, teams were 0-3 when only one person picked them...Nobody faces that curse in week 2.

On an Island with a friend - When only two experts chose a team, those teams went 2-2 last week.  Flip a coin Philly, Oakland and Minnesota

Split Decision - Two split decisions (6-5) last week...both won.  That means Cincinnati will win. 

Winning Dogs - Both underdogs picked to win outright won in week 1...Pittsburgh and Miami (though some books have pick em) are the dogs picked this week.

Road Warriors - In week 1, just 5 of 16 road teams recieved the majority nod...In week 2, its split 8-8.

Matching Sheets - For the second straight week, Worgull has a matching sheet...this time its Rodig.  Both went 12-4 last week.

Enjoy Week 1! (that's what I wrote last week...its week 2, right Worgull?!?!?!)

If everyone else can do these, why not me?

1.) Seattle (1-0) – yup, hard not to pick them here
2.) Denver (1-0) – Peyton Manning is still Peyton Manning
3.) San Francisco (1-0) – Despite some personnel loses, defense looks good
4.) Cincinnati (1-0) – Defense looks good.  If they start scoring TDs, watch out!
5.) Philadelphia (1-0) – 2nd half team is a top-five team…1st half, bottom five
6.) Detroit (1-0) – Yes, a complete over reaction to Monday…but, justifiable
7.) Carolina (1-0) – Survived one game without Cam, get him back for Detroit
8.) Miami (1-0) – The most impressive upset win of week 1
9.) Atlanta (1-0) – Big win for a team prime for a rebound year
10.) Indianapolis (0-1) – Andrew Luck will be elite, soon…if he isn’t already
11.) Arizona (1-0) – Carson Palmer = Captain Comeback 2014
12.) New Orleans (0-1) – Their week 1 loss will look better come week 9
13.) Green Bay (0-1) – Seattle is that good…Packers should bounce back
14.) Buffalo (1-0) – For a team with no expectations, a great start to 2014
15.) New England Patriots (0-1) – Could this be the year they fall?
16.) Tennessee Titans (1-0) – My watch-out squad of 2014 starts well
17.) Pittsburgh Steelers (1-0) – Almost coughed it up in Cleveland…not good
18.) Houston Texans (1-0) – Fitzpatrick = Fitzcapable.  That defense is good
19.) Chicago Bears (0-1) – And 2014 begins how 2013 ended
20.) San Diego Chargers (0-1) – Top ten in 3-quarter games
21.) Kansas City Chiefs (0-1) – Injury dagger in week 1 for the defense
22.) Baltimore Ravens (0-1) – Bigger problems than football right now
23.) Dallas Cowboys (0-1) – How ‘bout them Cowboys?
24.) New York Jets (1-0) – Is beating the Raiders like kissing your sister?
25.) Minnesota Vikings (1-0) - 1st in the standings, 24th in reality
26.) Tampa Bucs (0-1) – Can’t beat Derek Andersen at home…ouch
27.) Washington (0-1) – RG-A for Accuracy…RG-L for losing
28.) Cleveland Browns (0-1) – Was almost Johnny Football time
29.) Oakland Raiders (0-1) – Another long year for future San Antonio fans
30.) New York Giants (0-1) – hard to find anything good from Monday
31.) Jacksonville (0-1) – 1st half team looked top five…2nd half bottom five
32.) St. Louis (0-1) – Starter and backup QBs hurt = not good things
