  • Soup Bowl picks due Friday the 22nd @ 1:30 TFT

    It's time for the Bristol race. The deadline to post your picks is Friday, August 22nd, at 2:30 ET, 1:30 TFT (TrackForum Time). LATE ENTRIES WILL NOT BE ACCEPTED.

    Here's how to play: post your picks for the drivers finishing in positions 1-5, leading the most laps, and winning the pole. You may also post picks for others you know (spouse, child, s.o., etc), who are not TF members but wish to play. If you do this, however, please make it clear whose picks are whose.

    Be clear when you post. Distinguish between Jeff and Robby Gordon, Ward and Jeff Burton, Bobby and Terry Labonte, Jeff Burton and Jeff Gordon and Jeff Green, Elliott Sadler and Bill Elliott, or anywhere else where there is a chance for confusion!

    Point distribution is as follows:
    correct pole position - 1 point
    correct lap leader - 1 point
    correct 1st place - 5 points
    correct 2nd place - 4 points
    correct 3rd place - 3 points
    correct 4th place - 2 points
    correct 5th place - 1 point

    Here's how scoring is done: If the driver finishes at or higher than where you picked him, you get the points for the position you picked him to finish in. Example: you pick Tony Stewart to finish 3rd and he wins - you get 3 points for picking him third. If the driver finishes lower than where you picked him, you get nothing. Example: you pick Kevin Harvick to finish 4th, but he finishes 5th - you get no points for that pick.

    If two drivers lead an equal number of laps, more than any other drivers, you get points if you picked either one. When time trials are rained out or otherwise cancelled, no points are awarded for the pole.

    You may only pick drivers, not cars, and no alternates allowed. E.g. "Whoever is driving the #27 car" and "Ryan Newman, but if he doesn't make the field I pick Jimmy Spencer" are unacceptable. Also, picking the same driver for multiple finishing positions is not allowed.

    After the end of the season, the person with the most points will be named the winner. Prize will be the same as before: adoration and renown!

    If there is a tie at the end of the season for 1st place, the tiebreaker will be the number of races won. If there is still a tie, the winner will be the poster who won the most races as the sole winner, rather than simply tying for the win. If there is still a tie after that, there will be co-champions.

    Attempts will be made to notify anyone needing to edit their entry, but it is you who is responsible for your pick. Don't blame anybody else if you mess it up or neglect to correct your picks.

    In event of a dispute over scoring/disqualification of picks, notify the Pick 5 Commissioner (P5C). All decisions made by the P5C are final.

    Good luck,

    P.S. Scores from Michigan will be released tomorrow.
