For what its worth, you should give people 5 points for one of the three (Tony, Ryan, Danica)
If two of them come in the top 3, then give people 10 points
If all three of them in the top 3, then give them 15 points...like that will ever happen.

Annalee, I wish you could be at the Chili Bowl with me. I have three days of packing left. Baked cookies all day yesterday to take.

Since you so magnanimously changed a rule just for me, I shall make my picks for the first race right now!

1st #14 Tony Stewart (just in case you don't know driver numbers)
2nd #39 Ryan Newman
3rd #88 Dale Earnabuck, Jr.

Just in case I meet a driver in Tulsa who wisks me away, I'll have my picks turned in! LOL Let's have lots of fun this season!

Annalee, can I brag a little? Six or seven years ago, my grandson was Dale Jr. (his favorite driver) for Holloween. We used a bike helmet for his driving helmet, so I wrote Earnabuck Jr. on the front of the helmet. There aren't many Nascar fans in our little town, but most of them have heard about Dale Jr. Anyway, I came up with the Earnabuck thing. To the best of my knowledge I have never seen it before, or since. It got a few laughs as my grandson made his rounds.

If someone knows of another source for the name, please let me know. :twisted:

Could one of the rules be that if one of your 3 picks gets the Pole Position then you get maybe 2 or 3 points? Just a suggestion, if it don't make sense then that's ok.

with the deadline for making picks being midnight before the race, we will already know who is sitting on the pole.

Just an observation, it happened once or twice last season...the person on the pole crashed in practice, ended up in a backup car, and was forced to the back of the field. However, they did still get credit for their pole position and the money to go with it.

I agree with HT...> No points for Pole Winner.....

Usually the pole winner is determined on Friday a for Sunday race. If you allow picks up to midnight on Saturday. You will already know who the pole winner is...so I agree, no points for pole position winner.

Could shut off picks on Thursday midnight or Friday morning. Might make things a little interesting.
