Here are the rules:
  • Each week, for the first 26 weeks, you will pick one driver.
  • If you fail to make a pick before the Green Flag drops, you will automatically be given the top-qualifying driver that is still available on your roster. You will also be penalized up to 5 points for the late pick. (The minimum race score is 0, so you won't ever lose points on a week.)
  • Through the first 26 weeks, you can not pick the same driver twice.
  • You will be rewarded the same number of points as the driver receives in the race. (based on NASCAR's new scoring system)
  • Along with the human players, an automatic pick will be given to a competitor called "Racer X". This automatic pick will always be based on the highest qualifying driver that has not been used on its roster.
  • After 26 weeks, any players ranked below "Racer X" will be eliminated from competition.
  • All postseason-eligible drivers will have their regular season points totals reduced by 2/3rds. This will tighten the field for the Chase run.
  • In the Chase, the driver roster will reset, so you can use any driver one more time.
  • Top score after the last ten races wins the championship.
If you want to play, feel free to make your Daytona 500 pick any time before the green flag drops.

It sounds great !!  I'm in again, and Mr. blues is in as well.  It was a lot of fun last year, and should be interesting this year with the new format.  Let the racing begin !!

2017 breakout of the year: Clint Bowyer.

Chase Elliott will step up to a week in week out contender.

I am glad you are going to be in the race!  I've gotta make my pick still.  Ken would be better at explaining it, but two people can pick the same driver in the same week; if that driver wins, you both just get the same number of points for that week.  So if you want to switch back to Austin Dillon you still can; you can make changes until the race starts.  Welcome!

You can pick whoever got like, but once you use them, they're done for the regular season. Feel free to change if you like any time before green flag Sunday.

I will stick with Bowyer.

Anyone watching this Truck series race? This segment system may actually have some merits at normal tracks. At Daytona, it's just chaos.

Blueschica-  going with Brad Keselowski as well  !         Mr. blues is believing that this is Danica's best shot, so Danica Patrick for him.

Come on, folks! Let's get another entry or two.

Even if you miss the green flag, you can still get on with Chase Elliott as your default pick.

I don't think so. She'll improve, but it will take lot of luck to get a W.
