First off Congratz to ArceusX on another big win and retaking the point lead (its ironic that he is my brother and we are the two that are battling it out for the point lead now). This is his third win which ties him with Spanimal and Boog7 which means the 3 rookies who made their first start at Daytona this year have combined to win 9 of the first 11 races this year and overall Rookies have won 10 of the 11.
Speaking of Rookies, we have a new player this week in 24over48, so lets all offer him a warm welcome. Also, coincidentally 24over48 runs his own Fantasy Game(s) right here on Racing Reference, I myself participated in his games this week and they are as much fun as the one we run here (albeit a little harder) So check his games out too if you get the chance.
Spanimal had a bad week and has slipped to 5th in the points while Boog7 and Dodge moved up to 3rd and 4th respectivly. AnthonyB jumped over Jr88Fan after he has another strong week to back up his win last week. And ShakeNBake had a good week with his first top 3 finish in quite a while despite losing a single point to the leader.
And finally tonight I want to make a small announcement:
We will be doing picks for the All Star Race this week for the first time ever!
Picking will be a little different for this, I want you to pick 2 drivers for the Sprint Open and 2 Drivers for the All Star Race as well as 1 Driver for the Fan Vote.
The rewards will not impact our regular point standings but the points you can earn will be added to your chase seeding points. Here is how the points will shake out:
Correctly picking Fan Vote winner: 1 point
Correctly picking Open Winner: 5 points
Correctly picking Open 2nd place: 1 point
Correctly picking Open 1st & 2nd: 10 points
Correctly picking All Star Winner: 10 points
Correctly picking All Star 1st & 2nd: 20 points
Perfect Picks: 50 points (correctly picking Open 1st and 2nd, All Star 1st & 2nd, and fan vote winner)
If you have any questions about this or you want to critique it please let me know in the posts.
