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 30 results:

Russell Wilson vs Rams 2013

The curse is alive and well!  Maybe I should start selling the #1 spot to opposing fans so their team can lose.  Sorry Cincy!  I still like you, but not in a big game...Oh, and Seattle will lose to Dallas

1.) Seattle (3-1) – Back where they belong...for now (+1)
2.) Denver (3-1) – Peyton Manning, soon to be TD king (+2)
3.) San Diego (4-1) – They beat Jacksonville, can’t move up for that (+3)
4.) Philadelphia (4-1) –  Like everyone else in the NFL...flawed...but winning (+1)
5.) Cincinnati (3-1) – Don't tell Cincinnati Tom Brady sucks (-4)
6.) Arizona (3-1) – Winning at Denver is tough with your starter...let alone 3rd stringer (-3)
7.) Dallas(4-1) – Everyone just waiting for them to drop...I am buying them (kiss of death) (+3)
8.) Indianapolis (3-2) – Andrew Luck is awesome...that is all (+3)
9.) Baltimore (3-2) – Tough loss to a good team...they'll be fine (-1)
10.) Green Bay (3-2) – found their running game, can they hold on to it? (+2)
11.) San Francisco (3-2) – 49er fans love me constantly picking against them (+2)
12.) Houston (3-2) – Thursday vs Indy will be big (-3)
13.) Carolina (3-2) – Good win, still questions with running game (+1)
14.) Detroit (3-2) – They let Jim Schwartz get carried off their field...they should drop more (-7)
15.) New England (3-2) – Tom Brady doesn't suck (+3)
16.) Buffalo (3-2) – neither does Kyle Orton! (+3)
17.) Kansas City  (2-3) – Loses at San Francisco and Denver...they'll bounce back (-2)

19.) NY Giants (3-2) – Probably waaaaaaaay to low (+2)
20.) New Orleans (2-3) – Maybe an OT win, at home, over Tampa will cure them...(+2)
21.) Atlanta (2-3) – Good at home, bad on the road. SEE: Dome Team...just like last week (-5)
22.) Chicago (2-3) – Cue Denny G. once again...(-5)
