Wait... you can't have two #1's can you??? I don't remember that in the new rules.
I believe Calvcopf MAY have found a LOOPHOLE/GRAY AREA in the rules:yikes::nono: !!! By selecting 2 #1 picks , IF 1 WINS the other pick would get only 1point, IF in top 5 .( same as a #5 pick) Selecting MORE than 3 #1 picks means you give up bonus points for 2nd 3rd or 4th finishes . Like in NASCAR , when a racing team finds a loophole , it is changed OR everyone else uses that loophole also !

There is a provision that allows the picks ( if not posted) from the last race to be used, but I believe that is for the CURRENT season , not from the last season . IF I am wrong and every one agrees , CORRECT the standing :buddies:

I'm OK with not getting any points for a race where I didn't pick any drivers. It's early with plenty of season to make up points.

Nice start your engines by the Marines and Navy in Afganistan.

Is it my imagination or is there always Air Force personnel available to go to these sporting events? Many times you see the Army. Sometimes you see Marines, and occassionally Navy personnel. As a Coastie, the last time I remember seeing fellow Coasties at a NASCAR event was when they sponsored a Nationwide series car.

OK, here's my dumb nascar question. Why do they have stages for the race? Why not just have all the laps done in 1 race, like it was done years ago? Use small words if possible. TIA

Points are awarded after each stage. It is meant to create a sense or urgency to battle for the lead early to keep getting more points.

Many fans do not like the stages because of the artificial caution flags generated. For me, they keep me from falling asleep after lap 30 and waking up 20 laps before the end.
