    Okay guys, sorry for the lateness but i was well out of it on my medication last night, not that it is working!

    c - 7pts
    e - 5pts
    b - 3pts
    a - 3pts
    d - 0pts

    And once again, congrats to The Mars, he wins again! Got to admit that I was a little diswappointed that my caption didnt get anything but, obviously there were better captions out there.

    Just an update on the last spot in the Chase because it is really close between Justin and 01GTP, only half a point between it and only the Richmond round to go before The Chase starts.

    So far, just to remind you all, confirmed into the Chase are:

    So this is going to go down to the wire again between 01GTP and Justin and who wins and gets into The Chase will be up to you guys.

    Mars, look forward to getting the picture from you!

    Tony looks just like Tony after winning a race, while Darian looks just like he got his prostate examined.

    Kinda had a feeling that that might happen, a three way tie!

    So myself, TS and 01GTP have won this round which means, just like Brian Vickers last year, 01GTP squeaks into The Chase!

    Now, the rules for The Chase are as follows:

    Only the top six are eligible to take part in The Chase but everyone can still take part in the competition because there are still places in next year's All-Star Caption to go for!

    The points for The Chase have been reset to 200 points and the normal rules still apply.

    All participants in The Chase are required to caption and vote!

    What I have also done is added points on for wins as you will see because someone, mentioning no names Jimmie Johnson, does have a big points leads because he won seven times during the off season!

    So, here are the final standings:

    Here is the Chase only bracket:

    And here is the first Chase caption as chosen by myself because of the triple dead heat!:

    Get captioning everyone and the closing date is this Friday at 1800GMT

    Josh Wise just before he attempted to place his hand on his hand rest on the car before realizing, "Whoa, there is no hand rest guys".

    (Fumbling around in pocket,digging for change)

    Ha,the nerve of that concessions employee telling me I have to pay for my Powerade because I'm no star of the sport.

    (Realizes he has no money)

    Hey Danica,could you loan me two bucks ?

    Oh, how I wish my hand was on Danica's C-pillar right now.

    just to let all you guys knows that you have 24 hours left to get your votes in

    Also letting you know that i got a message from mafia_boy that he is having to pull out of the competition due to reasons which I will not go into. So it is now down to five people in the chase
