*Xfinity Picks- Based on 2022 owners’ points if a car is fielded in 2023 along w/ Cole Custer, limited to two picks per segment.

*If a driver did not make the cup playoffs in 2022 you can select that driver as many times if you want in any series.
*Please keep track of your picks or refer back to the website to know what drivers you have available. If a driver’s number is in red that means you have already used them for that segment and will not be able to use again until next segment. If you accidently try to use a driver twice in one segment it will result in 0 points for that race.
Example on website
*The final points earned by all your drivers for that week will be added together and that will be your points for the week.
*If a penalty is given to a selected driver and that penalty is announced after the race on race day, the penalty will apply to your pick
*Bonus Point- For every race winner picked you will get one bonus point, that will carry over to playoffs if you make the playoffs.
*Bonus Point- Each week’s weekly high winner will also earn one playoff point, that will carry over to the playoffs if you make the playoffs, if there are ties for weekly high, each player will earn the bonus point.
*Bonus Points- Winners of segment 1 & 2 will each earn 5 bonus points that will carry over to the playoffs.
*To keep interest throughout the entire season, the season will be broken up into 3 segments.
Segment 1- 13 cup races Daytona-Darlington (Plus all Xfinity & Truck races). (Winner will be total points earner)
Segment 2- 13 cup races Charlotte-Daytona (Plus all Xfinity & Truck races). (Winner will be total points earner)

*Only the top 24 players from cumulative points earned from segments 1 and 2 will qualify for segment 3- 10 race playoff.
*Winners of segment 1 and 2 automatically make playoffs if they do not make it in on cumulative points, if either of the winners of segment 1 or 2 are outside the top 16 they would knock out players on points
*Eliminations will follow just like they do for the cup playoffs, bottom 4 players after each 3 race round of the playoffs will be eliminated. With the exception of round 1 which will go from 24 to 12 players.
