Scuba's NASCAR Pick 3: Week 18 Results

Wednesday, Jul, 9 2014

Our NASCAR Pick 3 is going strong!  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.

Ten July Predictions

Tuesday, Jul, 1 2014


New Month!  Let’s make some predications for July


1.) The United State will lose to Belgium and most people will go back to the same feeling they had about Soccer as a sport.

2.) Columbia wins the World Cup…from the little I have watched, they have impressed me most.

3.) Where ever Lebron James ends up, the haters will hate.  If he doesn’t go to Miami, then he will be blamed for breaking up the team and getting Bosh and Wade to opt out leaving lots of money on the table.  If he goes back to Miami, people will say he just wanted to be “wined and dined” and used this as a way to do that.  If he goes to Cleveland, it will be he should have never left in the first place.  The man can do no right.

4.) Carmelo Anthony ends up in Chicago.  The cleared room for him and have the best team to put around him.  Makes sense to me.  Kevin Love to Dallas.

5.) Giannis Antetokounmpo will be the MVP of Summer League…Bucks players have a history of shining in Vegas.

6.) The Brewers lead in the NL Central will be 3 or under heading into August.  Cincinnati is hot and St. Louis is finally healthy.  Don’t think the Brewers will tank, others will catch up.

7.) Milwaukee will be joined by Washington and Los Angeles as division leaders in the NL.  New York Yankees, Detroit and Oakland will lead in the AL.  Yankees would be the big change out of the bunch.

8.) Jermichael Finley will not be with a team when training camp begins late July.  If nothing has happened by now, I don’t think it does for Finley.

9.) An American wins the British Open…and it will be someone who has won a Major before!  If you are wondering, that gives me:  Jason Dufner, Webb Simpson, Bubba Watson, Keegan Bradley, Stewart Cink, Lucas Glover, Phil Mickelson and Tiger Woods…

10.) Matt Kenseth clinches his spot in the Chase for the Championship with a win…at some point this month.

Alright, have at it!  Email me your predictions (JHull@wincet.com) or tweet them to @JustinHullRadio using #WSCOPrediction.

The 2014 US Open is coming up this weekend.  So why not make some picks?  That's exactly the case here.  I brought together four great media minds (and J.P) to make some picks to compete for bragging rights!

The draft order was drawn by Cadorin.  It will be a snake style with each expert picking a total of four.  The total prize money will be added up to determine the winner so grabbing players that make the cut will be key!

The Order:

ROUND 2
1.) Felder - Jason Day
2.) Koob - Jim Furyk
3.) Woods - Keegan Bradley
4.) Cadorin - Dustin Johnson
5.) Hull - Henrik Stenson
6.) Worgull -  Charl Schwartzel

ROUND 3
1.) Worgull - Jason Dufner
2.) Hull - Jimmy Walker (pick made 2nd last because everyone skipped me)
3.) Cadorin - Martin Kaymer
4.) Woods - John Senden
5.) Koob - Hideki Matsuyama
6.) Felder -  Justin Rose

1.) Felder - Billy Horschel
