Pick two drivers every week.
There is a “Regular Season” and the “Playoffs”. The Regular Season is the first 26 races of the actual NASCAR CUP season and the Playoffs are the last ten races of their season.
You can pick a driver a maximum of 7 times during the regular season.
Whatever positions your drivers finish, that’s the number of points they get for the week, so the lower your points the better! And if either of your drivers win a race, you will earn a -5 point bonus for that week! Example:
Driver #1 finishes in 6th place. That driver gets 6 points.
Driver #2 wins the race by finishing in 1st place. That driver gets -4 points (1 point for finishing 1st minus the 5 bonus points).
So, your total points for the week (both drivers points combined would be 2 points (6 – 4).
If you miss the deadline to make your picks (by start of each race), then you will be given either the HIGHER of the number of the points for that week’s last place player or 50 points.
To qualify for the Playoffs:
Only ten drivers make the playoffs.
Playoff positions are first determined by number of weekly wins during the regular season. Tie breakers are determined by the total number of points during the regular season.
Once the playoff seeds are determined, Regular Season wins and Regular Season Points no longer matter.
The #1 seed for the playoffs starts the last 10 races with 1 point.
2nd seed starts with 3 points.
3rd seed in regular season points starts with 5 points and so on…
During the playoffs, you can pick a driver a maximum of 3 times during the playoffs.
You can pick any driver who is racing in each week’s race, regardless of whether or not he was eliminated from the real-world playoffs. In other words, the real-life NASCAR Cup playoffs has NO impact on who you can pick each week in our Pool.
Whoever has the LEAST points at the end of the ten races that make up the Playoffs is our NASCAR Pool Champion for the year!
