    A little late to the party this year, but time to get going with our 2020 NASCAR "Pick 'Em" game.......

    Oh yeah, we're starting on Sunday, February 9th, with both Daytona 500 qualifying a pre-season bonus event just like in past years. So get your picks posted for the Busch Clash at Daytona. See the post about the race.

    As far as the regular season, we're going with the same rules as the past and they again will stay the same all year including bonus points.

    1- Pick 2 Drivers each race!{place divided by 2}
    ex. 3rd and 9th place =12/2=6----your score for race

    2- Bonus pick winning driver.{-5}
    ex. your score {6} -5 = 1 score with bonus

    3- Bonus pick 2nd place driver.{-3}
    ex. your score {6} -3 = 3 score with bonus

    4- Picks must be in by drop of green flag.
    ex. the sticks with green material waving in air, if no pick avg is 43

    5- No picks for 3 straight races and you will be sent to pits for the remainder of the season.
    ex. out of competition - lost your team sponsor

    6- You may make your picks permanent for the entire season so you don't run the risk of getting the dreaded last place-point race result by forgetting to post your weekly picks. Just let me know in your initial pick post that you want your picks to be permanent for the year. Of course, you can always make a change to your permanent picks if one, or both, of your drivers gets sick, injured or loses his ride.


    Let me know who is in so I can get your names on my Excel spreadsheet. It's gonna be another great year!!!

    Please make your picks by driver name or car number and driver name. Driver name will always take precedence over car number.
    If you make your pick by car number only you're going to be locked in to that car number no matter who the driver is; and if you pick a car number not in that weeks race, you'll end up with 'last place' points as your score for that car.
    ..............If you have any questions just ask............

    Here we go for 2020!

    The Daytona 500 is Feb. 16th, but we're going to get started earlier with the Busch Clash at Daytona on Sunday, Feb. 9th.
    Each player participating in the Clash will get a -2 point bonus. Also, pick 3 drivers and tell me the order they will finish in the Clash. Pick the trifecta correctly and you'll get an additional -5 bonus. It doesn't matter if they finish 1st-2nd-3rd, or 5th-8th-last, just as long as you pick the correct order of finish for your 3 drivers.
    The Busch Clash at Daytona is scheduled for 3:00PM EST (Noon PST) on February 9th so your picks need to be posted to this thread before that.


    The only drivers eligible to compete are:
    2019 Busch Pole Winners
    Former Daytona 500 Winners who competed full-time in the 2019 season
    Former Daytona 500 Busch Pole Award Winners who competed full-time in the 2019 season
    2019 Playoff Drivers


    The drivers in the 2020 Busch Clash are: Aric Almirola, Ryan Blaney, Alex Bowman, Clint Bowyer, Kurt Busch, Kyle Busch, William Byron, Austin Dillon, Chase Elliott, Denny Hamlin, Kevin Harvick, Jimmie Johnson, Erik Jones, Brad Keselowki, Kyle Larson, Joey Logano, Ryan Newman and Martin Truex Jr.
    Daniel Suarez and Daniel Hemric are also eligible but will not be competing. Suarez team announced it will not run the Clash and Hemric is driving in the Xfinity this season.

    Check to make sure your 3 driver picks are eligible and planning to race in the Clash at Daytona. All 3 of your driver picks must start the race in order for you to be eligible for the additional -5 bonus.

    Make sure to get your 3 driver picks (in your projected finishing order) before 3:00PM EST (Noon PST) on February 9th
    .


    Good luck all!!!

                  7 players for the Busch Clash today. Everybody picked up -2 bonus points just for playing.
                  New player 'Avispa' (FABO) was the only one to pick drivers in the correct order of finish and pick up an additional -5 bonus points.

                  Congratulations!

                  Here are the current point standings following the 2020 Busch Clash:
                  Avispa (FABO) -7.0
                  71dartswinger (FABO) -2.0
                  Back in Time (FABO) -2.0
                  cuda20 (FABO) -2.0
                  fishmens67 (FABO) -2.0
                  ocdart (FABO) -2.0
                  Snake (FABO) -2.0
                  Yunick13 (FABO) -2.0


                  I have not yet seen any interest from other prior year players in the 2020 NASCAR "Pick 'Em" game.
                  I received notice from one of the prior years FBBO players that none of the FBBO players from prior years will be playing this year. What did you guys say to them? LOL
                  If we don't get more players then 2020 will be the final year of the NASCAR "Pick 'Em" game.

                      Glad you made it back again, Mike. This game wouldn't be the same without you. After all, it was your son that originally started this game!

                        Daytona 500 race picks:

                        #4 Kevin Harvick
                        #18 Kyle Busch


                        Let's see how these guys start the season. Daytona and Talladega are always a crapshoot, all you want is for your picks to survive to the finish and not get caught up in the 'BIG ONE'.

                            48 and 9 for Daytona. I'm thinking Johnson is going to have a great final year. I guess the first race will set the tone for JJ.
