    EDITOR'S NOTE: Since I don't have a lot of time at the moment (have to get up early in the morning), this will be somewhat shorter than it usually would be. Thank you for your understanding.

    Forty-two members of the SimRacing Design community stepped forward and submitted their picks for the big triple-header NASCAR race weekend at Las Vegas Motor Speedway. Scores this week were rather impressive, with over half of the field managing to score more than 200 points. The low score this round was 148, and our winning score was an astronomical 262 points!

    Of the forty-two members who entered the event at Las Vegas, thirty-one of them blew past the lofty 200 point mark, which is quite the impressive feat considering the unpredictability we tend to see in some NASCAR races. From those thirty-one still in the hunt for the win, twenty-three of them were able to amass more than 220 points. Of those twenty-three contenders left standing, seventeen of them managed to take home more than 230 points, which is something you don't see too often. From those seventeen members who remain, eight of them managed to score more than 240 points. Here are the eight finalists who will fight it out between themselves for the right to walk out of Las Vegas Motor Speedway with the win (in A-Z order):

    antknee10 (2013 SimRacing Design Pick' Em Series Champion)
    Fishtail (2014 SimRacing Design Pick' Em Series Champion)

    Gravite (2019 SimRacing Design Rookie of the Year Contender)
    Hendrick4life
    Johnnyk1990
    Ryan597
    TheOutlaw1272 (2019 SimRacing Design Rookie of the Year Contender)
    WarMaKin (2019 SimRacing Design Rookie of the Year Contender)


    Two past Pick' Em Series champions, three aspiring rookies, and three veterans left standing to battle it out for the win in the desert. All eight of our finalists had submitted absolutely fantastic picks for the race weekend at Las Vegas, but as with all past Pick' Em events, only one of them would be able to come out on top and hoist the hardware in Gatorade Victory Lane. Our winner this week picks up their third career Pick' Em Series win along with their first win of the young 2019 season. With an impressive winning score of 262 points, please join me in congratulating @Hendrick4life on taking home the win in the 2019 Pennzoil 400 at Las Vegas Motor Speedway SRD Pick' Em Series event! Rookie of the Year contenders @Gravite and Atlanta winner @TheOutlaw1272 end up in a tie for second place with 255 points, 2014 Series champion @Fishtail takes home fourth with 248 points, and our third rookie @WarMaKin rounds out the Top-Five with a final score of 247 points.

    @Ryan597 ends up in sixth place with a total of 243 points, 2013 Series champion @antknee10 comes home in seventh with 241 points, and @Johnnyk1990 walks away with 240 points.

    With this win, Hendrick4life becomes our third member of the 2019 season to punch their golden ticket to the 2019 SimRacing Design Pick' Em Series Championship Playoffs that start when we make our return trip to Las Vegas Motor Speedway in September for the running of the 2019 South Point Hotel & Casino 400 race weekend. He also picks up ten Bonus Points for the win at Las Vegas along with securing five Playoff Points.

    On the rookie front, we had three of our five active rookie contenders in the fight for the win at Las Vegas Motor Speedway. Gravite and TheOutlaw1272 both take home the honors of being our highest-finishing rookie at Las Vegas with their tie for second place! WarMaKin, with his fifth-place finish at LVMS, takes the lead in the Rookie of the Year standings after the third race of the season. @Reza Maulana, who didn't have a terrible finish at Las Vegas (17th place with 231 points), drops down to second place. TheOutlaw1272 sits in third place, Gravite sits in fourth, and @TheSpeedanator moves up to fifth place in the standings. @MWick4 and @Skyline did not enter picks for the race weekend, so they both have fallen farther behind in the standings.

    The SimRacing Pick' Em Series makes the trek from Las Vegas down to ISM Raceway, our other (yet smaller) diamond in the desert located in Arizona. Who will take home the win after the checkered flag waives on Sunday afternoon? Just be sure to submit your picks in the 2019 TicketGuardian 500(k) at ISM Raceway thread that will be up in roughly an hour from now and see how your picks stack up against the competition! It does not matter if you have been a SRD member for years or if you are brand new to this wonderful community! It's free to compete in and you might just find yourself taking home the victory in your first season of competition like our most recent winner TheOutlaw1272 achieved at Atlanta!
