    Nascar contest

    I get in a contest every year that is divided into 2 (18 races) each.
    You can only a driver once in each half. It's scored like golf. Lowest score wins. You get points based on finish only. For Daytona I took Ryan Newman and Ms Slick took Austin Dillon.
    In the first half I try to save the big drivers until I get behind. In the 2nd half I try to save all drivers in the chase until it starts.
    I'll use this thread all year for your all's help.

    We used to do a weekly draft at work, where we each picked 3 drivers per week and best combined finish won a Coke at break from the others. We each had one keeper and then drafted two more each week.

    I think Jr is the guy today barring bad luck. He looked really good in that duel, what little I watched of it.

    A buddy of mine runs it thru texts. You can join after first 18 races if interested.

    I got a decent score for using Austin Dillon but my other entry stunk with Newman. I hate to use the best drivers as this rave usually gets crazy with wrecks. The other guys I considered instead of Newman didn't do good either.

    Will be interesting to see if the Ford teams can do anything at Atlanta, now that spring racing is back there.

    My brother, dad, and I each pick one driver each week. Worst finisher picks first the next week, although I need to invoke some rule about picking the same driver as they both seem to be on the Hendrick wagon weekly. I had Truex last week.

    I got Denny Hamlin this week in our picks, we changed it up this year so that you have to pick by Monday the week prior to the race.

    I think he'd been in top 15 easy.
