    The points system rules that have been changed to parallel the announced changes to the scoring format for the 2017 Monster Energy Nascar Cup Series season, are in bold.





    If anyone needs to be refreshed on the weekly rules...

    Each week you select the top five finishers in the overall race results of that weekend's Monster Energy Nascar Cup Series race, as well as the pole sitter of the Monster Energy Nascar Cup Series race, and the winners of that weekend's Nascar Xfinity Series and Nascar Camping World Truck Series events, if they run.

    You will earn points based on where your five drivers finished in each Stage of each race.

    If you correctly pick the Monster Energy Nascar Cup Series race's Pole Winner, it's 4 points. A correct pick for the winner of the Nascar Camping World Truck Series and Nascar Xfinity Series races earns you 7 points for each.

    If any of your five drivers finish 1st-10th in Stage 1 and/or Stage 2 of a Monster Energy Nascar Cup Series race, the stage bonus points earned will carry forward into your total score.

    If any of your drivers finish in the top 5 overall, you'll get 1 point a piece. If any of your drivers finish where you predicted them to in the top 5 after the Final Stage, you earn 6 points a piece. A correct Cup winner earns you 9 extra points.

    The top 10 in the race results will be awarded season bonus points, with first receiving 10. Bonus points will then decrease by increments of 1, with 10th place getting 1 point. These points will be a part of your season points total all year, and are not subject to the best 20/25 race rule.

    The Pick'em winner each week will earn 5 playoff points that will carry forward into the playoffs. The 2nd and 3rd place finishers will also receive 1 playoff point each. In case of a tie for 1st, the player declared the race winner will receive 5 playoff points. The loser(s) of the tiebreaker will receive 1 playoff point. In the case of a tie for 2nd or 3rd, all players involved in the tie will receive 1 playoff point. The points leader at the end of the regular season will earn 15 playoff points, 2nd place 10, 3rd place 8, 4th place 7, 5th place 6, decreasing by 1 point per position through 10th place.









    Here's a sample weekly pick:

    These are jgegner's Pocono Race 1 picks from 2010...adjusted for the new 2017 system (***Note: Stage finishing positions below are meant as example only. No stage finishing records were kept before so nobody really knows what would have been the finishing outcomes of each stage.)

    Truck Winner: Ron Hornaday (NO GOOD...possible +7)

    Nationwide: Brad Keselowski (GOOD...+7)

    Cup Pole: Ryan Newman (NO GOOD...possible +4)

    1st: Jimmie Johnson (Finished 1st in Stage 1...+10, Finished 8th in Stage 2...+3, Finished 5th overall...+36...+1 point for putting him in the top 5)
    2nd: Kurt Busch (Finished 12th in Stage 1...+0, Finished 9th in Stage 2...+2, Finished 6th overall...+35)
    3rd: Denny Hamlin (Finished 5th in Stage 1...+5, Finished 2nd in Stage 2...+9, Finished 1st overall...+40...+1 point for putting him in the top 5)
    4th: Kevin Harvick (Finished 2nd in Stage 1...+9, Finished 10th in Stage 2...+1, Finished 4th overall ...+37...+1 point for putting him in the top 5...+6 points for picking him in his correct finishing position)
    5th: Tony Stewart (Finished 18th in Stage 1...+0, Finished 12th in Stage 2...+0, Finished 3rd overall...+38 points)

    TOTAL: 241




    Your Regular Season point total will be based on your best 20 of 26 races.

    The playoffs will be made up of 16 players who qualify based on relevant criteria described below. If you are outside of the playoffs, your best 25 of 36 races will count towards your point total, as you compete for 17th place in points.








    This is how the playoffs will work:

    The regular season champion plus the top 15 with the most wins will earn a spot in the SRD Pick'em Series Playoffs, provided they have entered 20+ races and are in the top 40 in the final regular season standings. Ties in amount of wins will be broken by overall points.

    If there are fewer than 16 race winners with 20+ starts in the top 40 of the regular season (first 26 races) standings, playoff positions will be awarded to those who are highest in points. If there is a tie in points, the player with more playoff points will be awarded the playoff position. If there is still a tie, bonus points will be the second tiebreaker.

    If there are more than 16 race winners with 20+ starts in the top 40 of the regular season (first 26 races) standings, playoff positions will be awarded to those with the most wins who are highest in points. If there is a tie in points, the player with more playoff points will be awarded the playoff position. If there is still a tie, bonus points will be the second tiebreaker.


    The points will be reset. Everyone will be set at 7000 points, with all of their playoff points and bonus points added to that total. Their weekly average will be added in, as well.

    Here are the other points added in:

    -To balance out the bonus points column (as people have more races than others), "buffer points" will be added.

    Buffer points are total bonus points over regular season races, divided by total weeks entered, multiplied by the number of weeks short of 26 races.



    Beginning playoff totals will be made up of...

    - 7000 points
    - Playoff points accrued during the regular season
    - Bonus points accrued during the regular season
    - The value of the weekly average after Race 26
    - Buffer points, if any




    Races 27-29: Round of 16
    Should anyone in the playoffs win a Round of 16 race, the win earns an automatic advancement to the next round. After those in the playoffs who've won a Round of 16 race, those in the playoffs highest in points will be used to make up a field of 12 who will advance to the next round. Playoff points will be the first tiebreaker. Bonus points will be the second tiebreaker. Weekly average will be a third tiebreaker if necessary. The field of 12 who advance will have their points reset to 8,000, plus playoff points, bonus points, weekly average, and buffer points.

    Those who made the playoffs but did not advance to the next round will simply continue to earn points for the remainder of the playoffs. Their final point total will be based on their best 7 of 10 playoff races.





    Races 30-32: Round of 12
    Should anyone in the top 12 win a Round of 12 race, the win earns an automatic advancement to the next round. After those in the top 12 who've won a Round of 12 race, those in the playoffs highest in points will be used to make up a field of 8 who will advance to the next round. Playoff points will be the first tiebreaker. Bonus points will be the second tiebreaker. Weekly average will be a third tiebreaker if necessary. The field of 8 who advance will have their points reset to 9,000, plus playoff points, bonus points, weekly average, and buffer points.

    Those eliminated after the Round of 12 will have their points reverted back to their original playoff reset total plus points earned in the first 6 playoff races, and will continue to earn points for the remainder of the playoffs. Their final point total will be based on their best 7 of 10 playoff races.





    Races 33-35: Round of 8
    Should anyone in the top 8 win a Round of 8 race, the win earns an automatic advancement to the next round. After those in the top 8 who've won a Round of 8 race, those in the playoffs highest in points will be used to make up a field of 4 who will advance to the next round. Playoff points will be the first tiebreaker. Bonus points will be the second tiebreaker. Weekly average will be a third tiebreaker if necessary. The field of 4 who advance will have their points reset to 10,000. No additional points will be awarded.

    Those eliminated after the Round of 8 will have their points reverted back to their original playoff reset total plus points earned in the first 9 playoff races, and will continue to earn points for the remainder of the playoffs. They will also have their lowest 2 playoff race scores dropped to align them with the rest who've been eliminated from the playoffs and are now competing for 5th-16th place. Their final score will be based on their best 7 of 10 playoff races.





    Race 36: Championship Four
    The results from this race will determine the SRD Pick'em Series Champion. The highest finisher of the remaining 4 championship eligible players will be the SRD Pick'em Series Champion. Subsequently, 2nd-4th of the remaining 4 championship eligible players will finish 2nd-4th in the final SRD Pick'em standings.

    5th-16th place will be determined by all points earned during the playoffs, will the best 7 of 10 races making up the final point total. Playoff points will be the first tiebreaker. Bonus points will be the second tiebreaker. Weekly average will be a third tiebreaker if necessary.





    Rookie points will remain the same. 20 points will go to top finishing rookie in a week's race results. The 2nd - 10th best rookies in a week's race results will also receive points, decreasing in increments of 2 points, down to the 10th best rookie who gets 2 points. From there on, each rookie will get 1 point.

    SRD Pick'em will continue in 2009, starting with Daytona.

    After the success of the 2008 season's game, I hope everyone looks forward to 2009. :)

    The game is still open to rule changes before the season, so if anyone has any reccomendations, please leave your suggestions here.

    2008 - DE3
    2007 - John Gregorio

    The SRD Pick'em Series will continue in 2010, starting with the events at Daytona in February.

    As the SRD Pick'em Series heads into its 4th season (3rd full), I wish everyone luck in 2010, and hope that the 2010 season will be yet another successful year for everyone involved. I'm looking forward to it. :)

    The game is still open to rule changes before the season starts, so if anyone has any recommendations, please leave your suggestions here.


    Series information and rules can be found on the first page of this thread. :)

    I love this game!

    Good to see you are running it for another year. I'm ready for another chase appearance, maybe a win or two.

    I actually cost myself two wins in 2009 because of bad preliminary picks.

    The only thing I would reccomend for 2010 is to make the Shootout kind of like Pick 'Em for Cup, maybe guessing the top three, give the duels two picks. That's all I reccomend.

    Mike, I don't have a rules change suggestion, but I was wondering if a top 5's and/or top 10's column could be placed on the point standing stats...if it's time consuming, then don't worry about it.

    How do we make our picks each week, through forum posts or something different?

    The non-points events at Daytona work like how the All-Star Race works with the 600. The points earned from those events apply to the weekend total for the 500. :)




    It wouldn't be too hard to do. And not very time consuming, at all.

    I'll just have to see if it would over clutter/complicate how the standings look, with the additional columns and numbers.


    For every week there is a Cup Series race, I will post a thread for the coming race weekend. In that thread you will post your picks for the week.


    Look through some of the old Pick'em threads, and read the first post of this thread for the rules. It's pretty self explanatory. :)
