Same here. I know they don't race on Easter, but every year I still end up being 'surprised'. "Oh...right...no race this weekend... :cry: " :lol:

Yea, I know what you guys mean. I don't know what to do with myself. There isn't even Supercross racing either this week. I already feel the shakes comming on now too. Looking at the weathere this weekend it might be 55 on Sat here. Hmmmm Maybe I should pull out the old crooked sticks and go golfing. Now that's a way to kill off the first nice day around here in a long time.

Here is from the page. You get the best of one not both.
You can only fall into one of 2 categories:
Category A: picks in correct order
Category B: picks in incorrect order

The system will first check to see if you fall into "Category A" by seeing how many you have in the correct order. It then checks to see if you fall into "Category B" (how many you have in the incorrect order). If you fall into both categories, it will award you the one with more points.

For example, if you picked:
1st Place: Jimmie Johnson
2nd Place: Tony Stewart
3rd Place: Ryan Newman

And the real winners are:
1st Place: Jimmie Johnson
2nd Place: Ryan Newman
3rd Place: Tony Stewart

...you would be awarded 50 points for getting 3 right in the incorrect order (Category B) since it is more then what you would get for Category A which is 30 points for getting 1 in the correct order.

I was wondering how it would work...couldn't remember... looking at my points, it did work this way for me. My picks were 88, 48, 24 and I was awarded 31.

My gut instinct continues to be...interesting. My picks are usually educated guesses based on past performance, blah blah, but I always listen to my gut if I have a strong feeling about someone (even if it seems nuts, which is often the case).

It never fails as a predictor of who will have a "significant" day, but half the time this turns out to be "significant" in a bad way. My gut picks either win or have awful days, nothing in between. Sure enough, Gut told me Dale Jr. would find victory lane... instead he had his first bad day of the year. :x :lol: The payoff when Gut is right is too good to stop listening to it.... I think. At least Gut's radar is partially in tune...can recognize that "something" is gonna happen. :lol:

Please don't shoot the messenger. :( I just copied and pasted. I got my points right. I hope all others will soon figure it out and be happy. :D
