    Ok guys and gals, time to get going with our 2019 NASCAR "Pick 'Em" game.......

    Oh yeah, we're starting on Sunday, February 10th, with a pre-season bonus event just like in past years. So get your picks posted for the Advance Auto Parts Clash at Daytona. See the post about the race.

    As far as the regular season, we're going with the same rules as the past and they again will stay the same all year including bonus points.

    1- Pick 2 Drivers each race!{place divided by 2}
    ex. 3rd and 9th place =12/2=6----your score for race

    2- Bonus pick winning driver.{-5}
    ex. your score {6} -5 = 1 score with bonus

    3- Bonus pick 2nd place driver.{-3}
    ex. your score {6} -3 = 3 score with bonus

    4- Picks must be in by drop of green flag.
    ex. the sticks with green material waving in air, if no pick avg is 43

    5- No picks for 3 straight races and you will be sent to pits for the remainder of the season.
    ex. out of competition - lost your team sponsor

    6- You may make your picks permanent for the entire season so you don't run the risk of getting the dreaded last place-point race result by forgetting to post your weekly picks. Just let me know in your initial pick post that you want your picks to be permanent for the year. Of course, you can always make a change to your permanent picks if one, or both, of your drivers gets sick, injured or loses his ride.


    Let me know who is in so I can get your names on my Excel spreadsheet. It's gonna be another great year!!!

    Please make your picks by driver name or car number and driver name. Driver name will always take precedence over car number.
    If you make your pick by car number only you're going to be locked in to that car number no matter who the driver is; and if you pick a car number not in that weeks race, you'll end up with 'last place' points as your score for that car.
    ..............If you have any questions just ask............

    Here we go for 2019!

    The Daytona 500 is Feb. 17th, but we're going to get started earlier with the Advance Auto Parts Clash at Daytona on Sunday, Feb. 10th.
    Each player participating in The Clash will get a -2 point bonus. Also, pick 3 drivers and tell me the order they will finish in the Clash. Pick the trifecta correctly and you'll get an additional -5 bonus. It doesn't matter if they finish 1st-2nd-3rd, or 5th-8th-last, just as long as you pick the correct order of finish for your 3 drivers.
    The Advance Auto Parts Clash at Daytona is scheduled for 3:00PM EST (Noon PST) on February 10th so your picks need to be posted to this thread before that.


    The only drivers eligible to compete are:
    2017 Pole Winners: Ryan Blaney, Alex Bowman, Kurt Busch, Kyle Busch, Chase Elliott, Denny Hamlin, Kevin Harvick, Eric Jones, Kyle Larson, Joey Logano, Paul Menard, Daniel Suarez and Martin Truex Jr.
    Former Daytona 500 Winners: Jamie McMurray and Ryan Newman

    Former Daytona 500 Busch Pole Award Winners: Austin Dillon and Jimmie Johnson
    2018 Playoff Drivers: Aric Almirola, Clint Bowyer and Brad Keselowski


    Check to make sure your 3 driver picks are eligible and planning to race in the Clash at Daytona. All 3 of your driver picks must start the race in order for you to be eligible for the additional -5 bonus.
    Make sure to get your 3 driver picks (in your projected finishing order) before 3:00PM EST (Noon PST) on February 10th
    .


    Good luck all!!!

    Hey ddpsnake -
    William Byron, the #24 driver, is not eligible to drive in The Clash this year.
    You need to pick another driver for your third driver.

    Thanks to Jimmie Johnson (IMO), nobody won -5 bonus points for their 3 Clash picks finishing in the correct order.
    But -2 participation bonus points to the following players for making 2019 Clash picks: 71dartswinger (FABO), 44070dart (FABO), Back in Time (FABO), Budnicks (FBBO), cuda20 (FABO), ddpsnake (FBBO), fishmens67 (FABO), JB400 (FBBO), memike (FABO)and ocdart (FABO).

        Your post is for Pole pick and driver picks for the Daytona 500, right?
        I haven't posted anything regarding the Pole pick yet. But I will.
