    Now that we've looked back, it's time to look ahead. It doesn't seem like it, but I've been the Commissioner for 5 full seasons now. Crazy, right? I know. Now, when I looked ahead to the next 5 years, I realized that I can't keep doing this all on my own anymore. Fortunately, I won't have to because one brave soul has stepped up to the plate and accepted basically everything I needed to offload in order to keep the series going and hopefully growing as time goes on.

    Ladies and Gentlemen, I am excited to announce that the SRD Pick'em Series now has its first ever Lieutenant Commissioner. Everybody please welcome @ShadowKnight508 as the new Pick'em Lt. Commissioner and please treat him with the same respect and appreciation that you've all shown both Mike and myself over the years.


    As Lt. Commish, ShadowKnight508 will primarily be in charge of presenting the SRD Pick'em Series to you all. You may recall that ShadowKnight508 creates the weekly Race Weekend Discussion threads. We have agreed that Pick'em will now become a part of those threads going forward. Think of it as a merger. Now every week, Pick'em will be included in your weekly race weekend discussions. So there will be free reign in that thread to shoot the breeze however you want about the real racing going on, and to make picks for Pick'em and later discuss how that went as well. As long as all picks are made before each week's posted deadline, it's all good. Once the races are over, scores will be tabulated by myself, and then ShadowKnight508 will present the Pick'em results, congratulate the winner, and whatever else he wants to include. Then the thread will be closed midweek same as it was most all last year.


    So things may look and feel a little bit different, but after the first few weeks I think everybody will adjust and be fine with it. I'm hoping this move will open the door for Pick'em to grow faster than we've ever seen before and have fields bigger than we've ever seen before. So let's all look forward to the new season and have a great time making our picks and sharing in the on track racing that has brought us together and keeps bringing us together over and over again through the years.


    Also, be sure to keep an eye on the Pick'em Rules, Info and History thread for some rule changes, including an overhaul of the Rookie of the Year points system, that will be announced for the upcoming 2018 season.


    Now that all that's out of the way, it's time to start your engines! The 12th season of the SRD Pick'em Series begins THIS WEEKEND! Watch for the first of the NEW Pick'em and Race Weekend Discussion threads to open hopefully tomorrow! GET EXCITED!!!

    @MattSRD28 I am truly honored to help out this fantastic Pick-Em Series that makes SimRacingDesign one of my favorite NASCAR-related sites on the entire internet. I look forward to creating each and every race weekend/Pick-Em thread this season and I can promise everybody here that I will craft up some great presentations once we get the results from Speedweeks!

    @BrendonH12 Thanks, bud. Looking forward to the upcoming season and putting on some of the best threads I have ever created!

    For everybody else on this fantastic site, the 2018 Speedweeks at Daytona Race Week(s)/Pick-Em Series thread will be up later tonight (around 9 to 11PM PST)!

    ****IGNORE - Posting this here due to 5-image limit on race weekend thread****
