just so I understand (I know I am slow)
if we pick drivers in the top 3 but out of order we get zero points. Correct?

My picks:

#14- Tony.
#18- Kyle Busch
#88- Dale Jooner.

I can't think of a good name for this. Unless you call it the "G.G. Shootout Points Club".

Thanks for taking the time to run this! Now if I can only remember to make my picks every week.

If your are gonna make this limited to people who regularly post then why don't you just do it by private messages .
I usually don't post because of the drama that goes on here. Basically I am afraid to post in fear I will tic someone off or offend someone. I don't want any trouble from anyone, But I am afraid that some people will be offended by this limit and more drama will begin.
I think its cool of you JSW to come up with this for the regulars. I do not consider myself a regular but I do log in and read post that I am interest in. does that make me a lurker?

Mrs HH & I are going to wait to see some of the practices Friday before making our picks.

I see 2 possible problems with using PMs rather than posting (and don't be afraid to post, ojeinnob).

1. A small handfull of users have not been able to get PMs to work for them. It's a technical problem with the website that the folks from Animink haven't been able to fix. So, some users might not be able to participate.

2. By using PMs, we would lose transparancy to the other members' picks. By posting them, everone can see the other members selections.
