    Thirty-two members of the SimRacing Design community ventured out into the great unknown at the brand new Charlotte Roval and submitted their picks for the race weekend at NASCAR's first "Roval" layout. Scores this week were all over the board, from our lowest score of 67 points all the way to our winning score of 217 points. Of our thirty-two members who submitted entry forms for the race weekend at Charlotte, just fifteen of them managed to score more than 150 points. From the fifteen entrants still standing, just five of them were able to score more than 180 points. Here are our five finalists who will duke it out for the rights to walk away from the Roval as it's first-ever winner (in A-Z order):

    Bradfan4ever (R)
    Fishtail (2014 SRD Pick' Em Series Champion)
    MattSRD28 (SRD Pick' Em Series Commissioner)

    All five of our finalists had submitted some quality picks for the Roval race weekend, where most of their drivers enjoyed good finishes and were able to rack up the points while others struggled with their picks. However, only one man could be left standing atop of the towering pile of carnage after the smoke cleared and the checkered flag had waived this past Sunday. Our winner this week picks up his tenth career Pick' Em Series victory and makes his move towards seventeenth place in the overall standings.

    With a winning score of 217 points
    , please join me in congratulating Pick' Em commissioner @MattSRD28 in taking home the inaugural win in the 2018 Bank of America ROVAL 400 at Charlotte Motor Speedway SRD Pick' Em Series event! This is the first win of the season for MattSRD28, and it moves him up to twentieth in the overall standings, just 55 points back from @Tim2488 in the battle for seventeenth place. Rookie of the Year contender @Bradfan4ever takes home second with a score of 209 points, @matheus357 walks away in third with 204 points, former Pick' Em Series Champion @Fishtail ends up in fourth with 199 points, and @Ryan597 rounds out our Top Five with a final score of 186 points.


    2018 Bank of America ROVAL 400 at Charlotte Motor Speedway Full Results

    With this victory, MattSRD28 picks up ten Bonus Points but since he is not in the Championship Playoffs, he will not receive any Playoff Points. Both Bradfan4ever and matheus357 take home a single Playoff Point for their Top Three finish at Charlotte.

    After three races, we have reached the cutoff point in the Championship Playoffs where we must eliminate the bottom four in the standings (positions 13th thu 16th). Here are the final standings for the Championship Playoffs (after the checkered flag waived at Charlotte):


    Due to poor finishes at the Charlotte Roval, @ShadowKnight508 (7,711 points) and @4WideRacing (7,669 points) have been eliminated from the Playoffs. Even with a fourteenth place finish, @nascarfan9 (7,710 points) fails to make it out of the bottom four by just eight points. @Johnnyk1990 was pretty much a no show in the opening round of the playoffs, and ends up in the sixteenth and final position with a total of 7,232 points. @starscream24 can breathe a sigh of relief, knowing that his twenty-first place finish was just good enough to stay in the twelfth and final championship-eligible place.

    Here is the final overall standings for the Round of Sixteen for both our Playoff drivers and non-championship contenders:


    With the bottom four drivers eliminated from championship contention, our Top Twelve members who moved onto the Round of 12 have had their points adjusted for the second round. The updated standings (post-elimination) are below:


    Ryan597, thanks in part to his fantastic performance during the regular season (four wins), once again retakes the top spot in the standings after the second round reset with 8,307 points. @Saan Anguish slots in at second place (Ryan597 takes the tie-breaker via having more wins), Fishtail sits in third (8,294 points), matheus357 is in fourth (8,278 points), @John Gregorio is now in fifth (8,272 points), @DannyM sits in sixth (7,257 points), @db512 is in seventh (7,257 points), and @Ryan81398 is the man on the cutoff bubble with a total of 8,253 points. @NAlt4 (8,245 points) is in ninth, Bradfan4ever (8,239 points) sits in tenth, @ahspencer01 (8237 points) is in eleventh, and starscream24 (8,218 points) rounds out our Top Twelve.


    Here is the updated Championship Playoffs graphic, updated to reflect our Top Twelve contenders and those four eliminated after the Roval race:


    Here are the low scores for our non-championship contenders in their fight for seventeenth place in the standings:


    On the rookie front, Bradfan4ever takes home the honors of being our highest-finishing rookie with his runner up finish. @Brandon Miller (5,228 points) still holds the top spot in the overall Rookie of the Year standings, with his lead over now second place Bradfan4ever (4,926 points) expanding to 302 points. @GambitJon drops down to third place with 4,889 points, and @HJimenez42 rounds out our still-active rookie contenders in fourth with 4,518 points.
