Winners Picks points

Hi gang, our apologies on the miscalculation of points for the Daytona 500 Winner’s Picks. We have now corrected the issue, and re-issued points.

Be sure to make your picks for this week’s race!

Re: Winners Picks points

I'm hoping that maybe you screwed up in reverse and maybe granted me extra points, since I only earned 1 ;)

But thanks for fixing those who know how to make better picks!

Are you playing the coin game on the Home Page, but then you also get 5 points a day for logging in.

Re: Winners Picks points

So, as I understand it log-in points do not reflect in the SHR Weekly Pick game. Just the 3 picks, 1 point for playing and a bonus for a SHR driver finishing in the top 3. Right?

I never saw that coin game. What advantage do I have in playing it every day? Does it count for the points standings or some separate game?

Re: Winners Picks points

The coins and those points will be added to your daily login as well as race point total under your avatar. This total is where it will be important because, unless things change, only the top 1000 scorers will be in the points race at the end of the season for the last 10 races for the season.

So you have the top 1000 scorers by points just under the avatar then you have the points scorers for those in the weekly picks and this season, if things are going as was discussed at the end of last season, those points are going to be calculated way differently. Those are going to be done as more of a bonus point system. Like if you pick drivers for each of the first 26 points races, then you would receive so many points representing each week that you made picks. Like lets say you made picks for 20 of the races and they hand out 2 points for each race as bonus points. That would be a bonus of 40 points.

Okay that said for a moment, we always start off each Race for the Chase with 5000 points, so using this bonus method it would give you 5040 points to start the chase with.

I know this sounds confusing. But there are a lot of changes this season and not all of them have been revealed yet. Some I am only stating as those that were discussed last fall as examples.

Re: Winners Picks points

In short:
1. Log in every day; :D
2. Play the coin game every day; :o
3. Play the SHR Weekly Picks game every week; :x
4. Hopefully pick the right drivers every once in awhile in the before mentioned game; :cry:
and I should be all right, theoretically speaking of course. :roll:

Anything else :?: :?: :?:

Hey, good question. I almost forgot about that thing. How much is in there, anyway? ;) Enough to buy something nice for the tree house?

Re: Winners Picks points

So I went from 31 points last week to 27 this week. Is it race by race or are you supposed to accrue points throughout the season?

Re: Winners Picks points

They show you how many points you get from week to week. Like one week you might only get 1 point for only making picks and not getting any drivers correct. Other weeks you might get all of them correct, but in the wrong order and that would get you 50 points if memory serves correct. If you get all three in the correct order, then you would get 100 points if I remember correctly.

Over on the far right is a list of the top 100 in points picks. This is for the whole season, but it only is the weekly picks...it does not include any of the games or daily login points.

Re: Winners Picks points

Just checked the breakdown of my points and all is good. I forgot it was a little off after Daytona and they adjusted the points. All is right now. :D
