    EDITOR'S NOTE
    So the plan is at the moment to get the Pick' Em results up later tonight after my shift ends. I work until 11:35 PM PST tonight, so it might be after 1:30 AM PST before I can get the results (graphics, other stuff) up. The Pick' Em thread for Atlanta will go up tomorrow night (before 8:30 PM PST) along with the race weekend thread for Atlanta (before 11 PM PST) after I get home from work around 7 PM PST.

    To make everybody aware of what is going on with me, I just got promoted to a full-time position at the TV station that I work at, so I will be working a ton of long shifts effective this week (started on Tuesday). This won't be stopping me from doing the Pick' Em or Race Weekend threads on here, but it will result in them being posted later than they usually are (they will be up by Wednesday night starting next week).

    EDITOR'S NOTE
    Since I am short for time (it's past midnight, and I really should be in bed since I have to get up early), this will be much shorter than what I usually post. Thank you in advance for bearing with me (since getting promoted to full-time at work came as a surprise and caught me off-guard.

    Forty-four members of the SimRacing Design community stepped forward and submitted picks for the season opening 2019 Speedweeks at Daytona International Speedway, which began with the 2019 Advance Auto Parts Clash at Daytona and came to a conclusion with the running of the 2019 Daytona 500. As usually seen at restrictor-plate races at Daytona or Talladega, scores were all over the scoring spectrum, from our low score of just 81 points all the way to our winning score of 189 points.

    Out of the forty-four members who entered picks for the race weeks at Daytona, just seven of them managed to surpass the 150 point mark. Here are the final seven members still in the running for the honor to hoist the hardware in victory lane after a hard-fought two weeks at Daytona (in A-Z order):

    4WideRacing (2016 SRD Pick Em Series Champion)
    DannyM (2009, 2017 SRD Pick' Em Series Champion)

    JeffJordan
    Johnnyk1990
    MonkeyWrenCh
    NAlt4
    starscream24


    All seven of our finalists had put down some solid picks, all that helped them score more than 150 points by the conclusion of the Daytona 500. However, only one of our contenders left standing can add the much sought after "Daytona 500 Champion" to their resume. Our winner this week not only takes home the Crown Jewel of NASCAR races, but they did it by a comfortable twenty-two point margin over our second-place finisher. With a winning score of 189 points, please join me in congratulating @4WideRacing on taking home the win in the 2019 Daytona 500 at Daytona International Speedway SRD Pick' Em event! @DannyM comes home in second place with a final score of 167 points, @NAlt4 finds himself in third place with 164 points, @JeffJordan takes home fourth with 161 points, and @starscream24 walks away in fifth with a total of 153 points. @MonkeyWrenCh just misses out on getting into the Top Five with 151 points, and @Johnnyk1990 takes home seventh place with a final score of 150 points.

    With this win, 4WideRacing becomes the first member of the new season to punch their ticket to the 2019 SimRacing Design Pick' Em Championship Playoffs, which start up in September with the running of the 2019 South Point Hotel & Casino 400 at Las Vegas Motor Speedway. He also picks up ten Bonus Points along with five Playoff Points for his victory at Daytona International Speedway.

    On the rookie front, we had five rookies step forward and submit picks for the 2019 Speedweeks at Daytona. With a score of 144 points, @Reza Maulana takes home the honors of being our highest-finishing SRD Pick' Em Rookie of the Year contender with his ninth-place tie with Pick' Em Commissioner MattSRD28! @WarMaKin just misses out on being our highest-finishing rookie with a total of 142 points, @Skyline takes home third in our rookie class with a total of 103 points, @MWick4 comes home in fourth with his score of 99 points, and @Keselowski2Wallace brings up the rear of our rookie class with his score of 83 points. However, there is speculation that Keselowski2Wallace is actually Bradfan4ever from last year (unconfirmed since I don't know if he actually got a name change or not approved), so that ends up being the case, MattSRD28 will remove him from the Rookie of the Year roster (since he is not a rookie).

    For those who didn't participate for Daytona, it's not too late to join in on the Pick' Em Series for the 2019 season! Just be sure to submit your picks in the 2019 Folds of Honor QuikTrip 500 at Atlanta Motor Speedway Pick' Em thread and you can 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 2018 Daytona 500 champion Bradfan4ever did!

    The Pick' Em and Race Weekend thread will be up for Atlanta later tonight (after I get home from work at 7:30 PM PST).

    Congrats @4WideRacing for the win! Also yay for me for winning the Rookie of the Race! Thank god I swapped Bubba for Logano, that really help increased my score there ;)

    Also, @ShadowKnight508 and @MattSRD28 I take a look back at last year's Daytona 500 Pick Em's thread and discovered that Keselowski2Wallace is indeed Bradfan4ever, so he's out of ROTY roster.

    I kind of wish I would have went with my original thought process for this. I probably would have been just inside the Top 20 in the results instead of the bottom of the barrel. Lol. Oh well.
