Anyone that has any idea's on improving the contest or just opinions on things about it in general post here so we can discuss it.. New Season is gonna be here very soon.

DAYTONA is right around the corner. Just 48 days away..




I have a few things (Just tossin' out idea's) ..

1.) I think we should'nt be able to use the EXACT COMBO of Drivers in Back to Back weeks. Its ok to use 1 driver week after week but Not the Same 2 in Back to Back weeks.

2.) Points awarded for STAGE WINS.

3.) Re-Vamp the Scoring system. Maybe go back to using the official points Nascar gives out for Race & that way STAGE POINTS can be used.

We cant give a point for stage wins if a Race Winner (1st Place) gets 1pt. That doesnt make alot of sense to me. Keep Bonus Points for race wins & 1-2 finishes but lets try & come up w/a better scoring system.

Or do half point per Stage Win..

1) Maybe, we should just pick 1 driver instead of 2.

2) we could give a minus 1 point for each stage win.

3) If we use only 1 driver we could just award the points that they finished from 1 through 40.

I like the idea of awarding for stage wins.

I don’t like the idea of only picking 1 driver.

add some shit and make it exciting...

2 drivers... bonus points for picking the exact position 1st and 2nd...not just two drivers finishing any 1st and 2nd.....

then bonus points for the rounds....

Something to think about

1. Pick (1) Truck Winner Fri

1a. Pick (1) Top Sunday Qualifier Fri

2. Pick (1) Xfinity Winner Sat

3. Pick (2) Sunday Winners

Total of (5) opportunities all plays posted by Thursday Night

So you test your skills capping in each area of NASCAR Trucks, Qualifying, Xfinity, and (2) shots on Sunday

Steve

I would be down to pick 1 truck driver for the Camping World Series & Xfinity but i dont wanna get into selecting any Qualifying.

Selections could be made up until start times of Races, not by thursday nights. I'll post start times each week for whatever we decide on doing.

Just dont wanna complicate this to much & dont want guys missing start times of Friday, Saturday or Sundays event.

** IF WE ARE GONNA AWARD POINTS FOR STAGES THEN WE HAVE TO COME UP W/A DIFFERENT WAY OF SCORING THESE RACES.

CANT AWARD 1PT FOR A RACE WINNER & GIVE THE SAME FOR STAGES.


I like the idea of not being able to select the same driver on B2B weeks. Or maybe come up with a set # on how many times u can use each driver during the Legs cause we do 3 Legs, 1st 10 races, 2nd 10 races & final 16. Probably gonna tweak it so we have 3 equal Legs of 12 Races each.

Hmm if i may.it looked like there was a total of 8 players in last years contest.awhile back we used to do a Nascar contest by random sequence numbers draw 2 drivers per week.no handicapping involved just luck of draw like the baseball contest were you get 2 teams,and no handicapping.since there are only a limited amount of players for contest maybe each contestant can get four drivers per week etc.depending on the driver/race field now yes someone could get 4 crappy drivers,but maybe you can do random/sequence draw 3 times each race by doing top 10 pole postion 1st followed by 11-20,and 21-say 32.then just run contest for whole year.then you can I guess use a point system,and run it like a w/l record.might be easier for lots. IDK sorry goodluck my brothers!

Im not sure if ur jokin or serious so u can figure out what we'r doin. Just dont think guys should be able to use same driver combo every single week all year, if thats what u guys wanna do then just let me know. Make it more strategu based.

When i 1st started playing u could only use 1 driver per leg & we selected 2 drivers a week.

pick 2 drivers for every race but you can only use same driver twice. Same point scoring as the past where least points wins. So finishing 1st gives you 1 point 2nd 2 points etc. Person with lowest total end of half wins. boooooooooooom

It would be easy to track, il make a list & post it each week in Race Thread.

Or we just keep the same scoring but u have to pick who u want in 1st & who in 2nd, u dont get 15pts for any 1-2 finish, has to be posted.

Theres plenty of drivers to choose from so doing 1 driver per leg wouldnt be bad, makes u think a little bit instead of taking Kyle Busch or Truex every single week.

I'll do the thankless job of scoring the contest for all u great guys..

just checked out module and its set up like the survivor... but does have the option to pick same drivers more than once.....

and i can set up 3 legs to contest on module.....

what ever you guys want to do is fine with me... if philly wants to track it thats fine also....

just let me know if i need to set up module if we decide to use it....

If we can use Module i would rather do that, would save a lot of time.

Make 3 Legs of 12 races apiece.

Can only use drivers once a leg.. We'll get the points that the drivers get & do away with the Stage points.

If u guys really want to include stage points then I'll track it manually & we can add it to module points & I'll have a running leaderboard in a thread.

We could do 1-10 points for stages if we'r getting 1-41 pts for races, same as real nascar scoring.

If u guys are ok with that, if not then u decide how many times, shouldnt be unlimited in my opinion. 12 races per leg & if we pick 1 or 2 drivers/wk theres plenty of good drivers to choose from. Makes u think a little bit more.

^ Just decide on what u wanna do & you can run it. I try and make the contest better but in all honesty no one gives a shit around here.

U have guys commenting in thread that dont even participate in the damn pool. And guys that do play in pool dont say anything.

Seems like the more i try n make things better the more aggravation it causes so do whatever u want.

Me & my son will play but u can figure out what u wanna do as far as contest rules.

Just post rules so i can read them before i commit to pool.

Stang & Poi: it would be nice to have the 2 of u participate, more players the better. I never heard u guys mention or talk about Nascar so didnt think u were interested.

Last yr i scored contest & spent alot of time posting write-ups to try and make the contest better & a little more exciting. But to be honest its boring when every single week all 8 guys in pool have a combo of the same 4-6 drivers.


Its up to Bagz what he wants rules to be cause he said he isnt playing if we cant use same drivers, i sent him a text and got no response so I dont know if he was serious or not.

3 legs of 12 races each or we do 2 Legs of 13 races each & last 10 races the top 4 guys battle it out for The overall pot, last 10 races are Playoff Races for Nascar.

Philly, he was joking and even if he wasnt he would still play lol Same drivers is stupid. Im atleast in for first leg. Suicide style is best. I just tried to add flare to it with using same driver twice. Pick 2 per week and take the points as they finish. make it simple easy competitive. Bags said he allready has module setup for this so would be easy to track then as well.
