RULES & HOW TO PLAY FOR 2020 ARE LISTED BELOW
**MAKE SURE YOU CHECK YOUR POINTS**
POINTS BECOME FINAL ON FRIDAYS
**Update to rules posted below **
CHANGES TO RULES-
*Race segments- initial format included races that cup was off. Going try to keep it as close as possible with 13 cup races segment 1 and 2 and 10 for the playoffs. This might change if there is a double the last week and it would go to 14-12.
*Points- Will be added together for the week. For example 2 Darlington Cup Races and Xfinity race for May 17th-20th. And points for 2 Charlotte cup races, Xfinity, and Truck May 24th-27th will be added tighter.
*Atlanta- All picks for Atlanta will be scrapped. Initially not knowing how long this was going to last, I thought I would keep them, but since we do not know when we will go to Atlanta, I am scrapping those picks and we will repick Atlanta when we go back racing at Atlanta.
*Picks- Picks for ALL races at Darlington will be due by Midnight Saturday May 16th. Picks for both cup and Xfinity races will need to be submitted. Picks for ALL Charlotte races will be due by Midnight Saturday May 23rd. Picks for both cup, Xfinity, and truck will be due at that time.
*Matt Kenseth- No limit on the number of times you can use Matt Kenseth

*Send an email to email@example.com
*All new players must register to play, if you played in 2019 you are already registered, only new players will need to register.
*Make sure you include in the body of the email your first and last name, email, and twitter handle if you have one.
*New this year you can sign up throughout the season
*Picks must be submitted via email to firstname.lastname@example.org to be accepted.
*When you submit your picks please include your full name in the body of the email. Not everyone has their name in their email address and the spreadsheet has everyone full name, so please include your full name in the body of the email.
*Please include the full name and number of the driver you are selecting for each of the three series.
*All picks for the upcoming race weekend are due on Thursday by 5PM EST. Exceptions to this would be throughout the summer when Truck series run a mid-week race, those weeks, picks will be due by that date. Reminders will be sent out and communication will also be mentioned on the show. One weekly reminder will be sent out mid-week.
*If all 3 series are running, Cup, Xfinity, and Truck, you will pick 1 driver from each. If just Cup and Xfinity are running than you will just pick from Cup and Xfinity. If just Xfinity is running you will pick just an Xfinity driver.
*The final points earned by all your drivers for that week will be added together and that will be your points for the week.
*You can only select a cup driver who made the 2019 playoffs once in each segment. Example If you pick Joey Logano for the Daytona 500, you would not be able to select him again until Kansas 5-31 when segment 2 of the league starts.
*If a driver did not make the cup playoffs in 2019 you can select that driver as many times if you want.
*Xfinity & Truck series are all open for multiple picks and do not have a limit on the amount of times you can select a driver
*As long as a driver did not make the cup playoffs in 2019 they are eligible to be selected as drivers in other series. For example. Austin Dillon runs an Xfinity race you can select him as he did not make the 2019 cup playoffs.
*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
*Updates will be posted to the website typically Monday's sometimes it might stretch over to Tuesday's.
*To keep interest throughout the entire season, the season will be broken up into 3 stages.
Segment 1- 14 races Daytona-Charlotte including an All-Star race bonus (Pick winner of the All-Star race receive 15 bonus points-Does NOT count towards driver picks)
Segment 2- 15 races Kansas-Daytona
Segment 3- 10 race elimination playoff (must qualify)
*Only the top 16 players will qualify for the stage 3 10 race playoff. 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. Tiebreakers will be determined by the number of correctly guessed wins in the playoffs for all 3 series. If a second tiebreaker is needed will use number of correctly guessed wins in stage 2.
*The final 4 will have their points reset to 0 prior to Championship weekend. Final 4 will have an equal chance to win.
*Playoff bonus points will follow NASCAR’s awarding of playoff points for end of the season. 1st place once reseeded will receive an additional 15 points, 2nd place will receive 10, 3rd place 8, 4th place 7, 5th place 6, 6th place 5, 7th place 4, 8th place 3, 9th place 2, and 10th place 1 11-16 will not receive any additional playoff points.
Any discrepancies please let me know as soon as you notice them. If anything needs to change, I will try to give as much advance notice, so make sure you check your emails, twitter, and listen on the show!!
