2013 SHR VIP Garage Chase Format Begins!

Mon Sep 16, 2013 10:14 am

VIP Garage Members! It’s that time of year again when the competition gets fierce! The same can be said for the VIP Garage as this year’s Grand Prize is nothing short of INCREDIBLE!

As you have probably already noticed, the top 1000 point scorers have been reset and the field has been leveled. You’ll have the next 10 weeks to earn as many points as you can. The Winner’s Picks area now awards more points than ever! At the end of the season, we’ll randomly pick one lucky winner from the top 25 scorers.

This year’s grand prize is an autographed piece of sheet metal. Details coming soon, but it’s guaranteed to be signed by all 3 SHR drivers, Tony, Ryan, and Danica.

Ladies and Gentlemen, Start Your Engines!

How is it that the first 17 people have 5 pts more than everyone else? I have been logging on everyday to get my 5 points and I went from 9th to 125th. Now if everyone is reset to 5000 how do those few already have extra points. If its because they logged on after you reset the field then everyone who logged in this morning before you reset the field should get the same opportunity.

It happens every year like this. I have learned it ain't worth getting upset over. This weekend was the first time I actually played the points game. Now things should get interesting as it is about daily login and weekly scoring. All I have done is logged on almost every day of the season and I had over 1100 points.

Edit: I think I figured out why some people have 5005. When the moderators updated the totals, not everybody had logged in yet today. I noticed it when my daughter and wife both made posts this afternoon and their points were at 5005, but because I posted and logged in so early this morning the website knew I had already been here so it would not give me another 5 points again. That is as near as I can tell.

I hope this explanation helps.

oh I got my points but if you logged in before the reset you don't get to keep them I guess.

For at least the second year in a row, I wasn't given the extra Chase points even though the last time I checked about a month ago, I was in the top 150 so this makes no sense. This year, I wrote Animink a message so I'll see if they're awarded to me. It's not a big deal, but for the second year in a row, it's getting a little annoying. I think I may have written too many pro-Brad K. posts! LOL

I just joined the garage (and clearly joined after the Chase points had been set), but I can't wait until next year! This looks like a lot of fun! Good luck to you all! :)

They only allow the top 1000 points holders in on the forums Chase Race and there are 4849 registered members now. Big increase from a month ago when it was around 3400.

Well, I was clearly in the top few hundred at least and they didn't add any points to me. I just checked and last year I DID send Animink an email asking why with no response. So far, no response again this year. Guess I'm the red-headed step child, only my hair isn't red. :D

Glad to see all the new members though. That keeps things interesting.

All I did was login almost everyday and had close to 1200 points for my efforts and there was one week that I missed because of being on vacation.

I did check out a thread here and there and sometimes several a day. I posted at least once a day and sometimes a few times a day or more...so maybe that is how I got into the top 1000.

My daughter and wife do not login everyday, but they did play the weekly picks game every week. Some weeks better than others. Both of them over a 1100 points and I do know that Mrs B had more points than myself from playing the game. My daughter was close behind her.

I am now playing the weekly picks game for the first time all season.

Thanks, but it depends where you look. Points Leaderboard, yes. Points Standing, no. Should I pick Matt 3 weeks in a row? Hmmmmm...

You'll have to clue me in...where do you see the points standings? Are you referring to the points we have listed on our avatar, which includes the daily log-ins?

Yes, those would be the ones...
