Official G.G. Raceday Points Club

Mon Feb 11, 2013 10:24 am

This is the Brand New Point's Club for 2013. If U have a better name for this club Post ur suggestions here. If ur New name is picked for this new thread, U will get 10 extra point's to be leading in point's at the start of the race season!!! First race to Pick ur drivers for points is>Sprint Unlimited and Bud Duels! I'm goin to make this as simple as possible. Deadline for names to change the name of this Thread will be before Midnight 2/15/2013!! Plus, U need to have ur pick's posted by 2/15/13 before midnight too!!!!

RULE's............
Each race week (starting 2/16/13 with Sprint Unlimited and Bud Duels) when U pick ur Top 3 drivers (1st, 2nd, 3rd) for that race, U MUST POST THEM ON THIS THREAD TO GET UR POINT'S!!

Example;
A- 14
B- 39
C- 10

Point System,
A. 100 points - for correctly picking first place
B. 50 points - for correctly picking 2nd place
C. 25 points - for correctly picking 3rd place
"200 Point's for haveing All 3 picks in Order"....!!!!!

D. 5 points bonus - If one of the 3 SHR driver's is in the Top (5) for that race,Tony, Ryan, or Danica. If Two SHR driver's are in the top (5) 10 Bonus point's. If All three SHR driver's in are in the top (5) 15 Bonus point's. U can't get more then 215 point's per-race.....
The point's will only be added-up for ur race pick's each week. Your Log-in point's will NOT be added-in ur score.!There is NO limit on picking the same drivers each week.

If U fail to post ur pick's before 12:00 midnight before the race, (or edit them in any way after midnight) your picks & points will NOT count for that race ONLY. U can still pick ur drivers for the next week's race IF U post-em on time.The Key is> post ur picks correctly in Order on time every week too get ur points!!!!

The Deadline for picking ur driver's is> 12:00 Midnight Eastern Time...

HTower will keep score on a Excel Spread Sheet. Annalee will be the Back-up Score keeper. It is wise to keep track of ur score yourself. Remember, NO Point's for Log-in every day will be counted!!! This Game is for Race-Point's Only! I (jsw14) will supply the 2013 Winner with this Prize after the last race at Miami-Homestead with the Most Point's for the year! The prize will be shipped at NO cost to U!!! We will announce the Winner after point's have been totaled. I will PM the Winner to get there address.

Good Luck Pickin ur Driver's for the 2013 Season!!!!

I'm NOT Eligible to Win the Prize. If I come in First with the most point's, the Prize Will go to 2nd place. I will have the "Braggin Right's for 1st place" :)

GO SHR

So, pretty much like the one that's already here? :lol: BTW, what's with the midnight deadline? Since there's NO computer involved, I think it should be up to race time. That way you could change if there's a rain out or somethin'...maybe you'll feel different about picks for a Sunday afternoon race in the sun as opposed to what woulda' been a Saturday night race on a cooler track? Just a thought. ;)

OTHER IDEAS
-Make picks for the Indy 500
-first car out of race
-lap of first caution
-number of cautions
-number of cars on lead lap at the end of race.


Each player is Responsible for their own picks & posting. When U post ur picks U should "Double Check" ur post, (I do that every week) to make sure it's posted & in before the deadline..........



Mudsummer classic thread:
viewtopic.php?f=8&t=5847
more points for picking heat winners. Pick the first nationwide driver to finish, first Sprint Car driver to finish, first Camping Truck series driver. First Dirt track racer to finish.

not that im doin this but it should be open to all, or nothing at all, this is why new people feel alienated and its the same 20 people that post everyday, there is always some kinda rules around here that excludes others.

Wow J, you are so talented and a nice guy to give the prize for this year...thanks a million.

Thanks also must go to our scorekeeper HTower and our sweet back up Annalee.

Rulez....now you know nothing good happens after midnight....at least you should if your momma raised you right.

One thing I'm just a little curious about......I think this contest, which is truly fun among friends is a great idea. I think the premise of having it stand for those of us who are active posters and interact freely among members is a good one...but what if some of these non-posters play this game as well?
I guess I just feel like some members here may not contribute alot in writing but may come here to "lurk" as some would say and are they NOT eligible? Just asking....

Re: Official G.G. Raceday Points Club

I am imagine if you post in this thread to make your picks your not lurking. you are participating. Dont see how anyone would feel alienated, unless they want to be alienated, but not posting with people.

BTW midnight what timezone? (PST.)?

Image Doc, Thats what SHR is for "Friends & Fun" :) Ur a active poster, I'm sure HT will add ur name to the game if U play this year... :mrgreen: Come-on-in & join the FUN!!! :D

I don't think active members want to see a "Lurk'er" (or a inactive member) to play the points game & Win the Prize & Leave!!!!! Do U?

I'm Pick'in & Grin'in :lol: :lol: :lol:

If you write down "Kezlowski" and mean "Keselowski", you'll be fine. If you choose "Bifle", but mean "Bowyer" you won't be getting who you wanted :mrgreen:
