2022 Event Summary: Racing

Status: Open

RULES: RACING

Q1: NASCAR Playoffs
The NASCAR Playoff is a 10 race series and comprises 16 drivers accumulating points based on their performance during and finish after each race. After 3 races, the bottom 4 racers are eliminated from the playoffs (altho they continue to race). This cycle happens three times until the 10th (championship) race has just 4 drivers left.

We have seeded the racers; your challenge is to pick 4 of them (non seeded drivers will participate in the races but are not available to pick) totaling 14 or more seed points. You will get points based on their finish in the Playoffs (not in individual races):
1st: 100
2nd: 75
3rd: 60
4th: 45
5th: 35
6th: 25
7th: 15
8th: 10
9th or worse: 0

Additionally, you will receive points if a driver you pick:
Wins an individual race: 20
Advances after Bristol: 7
Advances after Charlotte: 12
Advances to Phoenix: 15

Picks lock Sun 9/4 at 3p Pacific

Q2: Daytona 500
The bad news is that they don't race on the beach anymore, but the good news is that you can see it in HD from your own home. 40 racers are available and seeded according to pole position. Choose 5 which add up to 60 or more seed points.

Drivers who finish in the top 20 earn points:
1st...75 pts
2nd...65
3rd...57
4th...50
5th....46
6th....43
7th....40
increment down by 3 pts per place
19th....4
20th....1
21st and worse get 0 pts

Picks lock when the race starts (Sun Feb19, 1130a Pacific)
Reminder: no late picks for races

Q3: Kentucky Derby
20 horses are available and seeded. Choose 5 horses which add up to no more than 26 seed points. For example, you could choose horses with seed values of 10-10-2-2-2 (26 pts) but not horses with seed values of 10-6-6-4-2 (28 pts). You are responsible for knowing which horses are scratched from the race. Seeds are based roughly off the initial odds posted here

Picks will stay open until just before post time; Sat 5/6 3:55p Pacific. We know you like to watch the horses walk up to the gates... Any attempts to enter picks after this deadline will result in a severe decathlon penalty.

Points:
1st place... 100 points
2nd place... 80 points
3rd place... 65 points
4th place... 50 points
5th place... 40 points
6th place... 25 points
7th thru 10th place... 10 points
11th place or worse... 0 points
