    The only highlight of my picks is that I got the pole winner correct, lol and every single one of my top 5 crashed. I'm excited to see how low the scores are this week, lmao.

    If NASCAR wouldn't have made that stupid call in the NXS race and if Chase Elliott wouldn't have won the pole, I'd had a good weekend.

    Just wanted to let everybody know that I have been sick the past two days (fever, throwing up, and quite a bit of coughing), hence why I didn't get around to posting the results for Chicagoland like I wanted to on Saturday (busy working two jobs) or Sunday (first day of being sick). I will, however, be getting the results up for Chicagoland tomorrow night (during my dinner break at work) along with the two threads for Kentucky (Race Weekend and SRD Pick' Em).

    Thank you for your understanding and patience. I am feeling somewhat better as of now but still not where I want to be quite yet.

    I wonder what the all time lowest score is. I got 21 points this week, and I’m not sure if I’ve ever seen lower.

    Since the beginning of the 1 point per position system in 2011, the all-time lowest score was 32 at the 2013 Daytona 500. More than 10% of this most recent Daytona field did worse. :(

    Just a heads up. I will be posting the results tonight for Daytona along with getting both the Kentucky threads up. I was going to put both Kentucky threads up last night, but I ended up having a lot more work than I was expecting and didn't get time to do so.

    Thirty-eight members of the SimRacing Design community stepped forward and submitted picks for the race weekend at Daytona International Speedway. As usually seen at the restrictor plate races here in the Pick' Em Series, scores were on the lower end of the scale this past weekend. With so many top drivers having terrible finishes in the Cup race on Saturday night, we had some historically awful scores for Daytona. How bad was it? Consider the following:

    • The all-time lowest score for a race weekend was set back in the 2013 Daytona 500 SRD Pick' Em event at 32 points. That record stood for five and a half years until...
    • Five members scored 32 points or less in the 2018 Coke Zero Sugar 400 at Daytona, including our newest record-setting low score of just 21 points (which two members managed to tie for last place with 21 points).
    • Only two members were able to surpass the 100 point mark, which equals out to just 5.26% of our field. The other thirty-six members failed to crack the 100 point mark, and a majority of the field didn't even make it to 75 points.
    • Last place. That is where our winning score from Daytona (108 points) would have finished last week at Chicagoland Speedway. The low score from Chicagoland (168 points) would have absolutely smoked the rest of the field this round at Daytona. @starscream24 (168 points at Chicagoland) would have taken home the win at Daytona by a sixty point margin over our winner this round!
    Of the thirty-eight members who submitted pick for this round, only twenty-four of them managed to make it past 50 points. From those remaining twenty-four contenders, just thirteen of them were able to score more than 75 points. Of those thirteen members left standing, only seven of them found themselves scoring more than 90 points. Here are the final seven contenders who survived enough of the chaos at Daytona to make it to the final cutoff (in A-Z order):

    Our final seven contenders submitted picks that were just good enough to survive the carnage and make it all the end. However, only one of them would be able to leave the junkyard that Daytona became on Saturday night as the winner of the 2018 Coke Zero Sugar 400 SRD Pick' Em event.

    We had two members tie for the win at Daytona this round. Both @nascarfan9 and @Virox6549 ended up at the top of the board with a total of 108 points. Ties for the win in the SRD Pick' Em Series are not a common occurrence, but they do happen from time to time. Walking away with a winning score of 108 points after securing the tie-breaker, please join me in congratulating @nascarfan9 on taking home the win in the 2018 Coke Zero Sugar 400 at Daytona SRD Pick' Em Series event! This win (according to the SRD Pick' Em All-Time Winners List) is the first career win for nascarfan9 in the Pick' Em Series. Virox6549 ends up finishing second (via tiebreaker) with his 108 points, and will also take home ten Bonus Points along with five Playoff Points for his tie with nascarfan9. @Saan Anguish takes home third with 97 points, @burtonbraves walks away in fourth with 95 points, and @2448fan4life & @Ryan81398 end up in a tie for fifth place with a total of 94 points. @BobbyRicky62 is our seventh place finisher with a final score of 91 points.


    With this win, nascarfan9 becomes eligible for the 2018 SRD Pick' Em Championship Playoffs that start in roughly two months with the running of the 2018 South Point Casino & Hotel 400 at Las Vegas Motor Speedway. He also takes home ten Bonus Points along with five Playoff Points for his triumph in the 2018 Coke Zero Sugar 400 at Daytona.

    On the rookie front, @HJimenez42 takes home the honors of being our highest finishing Rookie of the Year contender with his 10th place finish at Daytona. @Brandon Miller still maintains the top spot in the 2018 SRD Rookie of the Year standings with 3,271 points. @GambitJon sits in second with 3,041 points (-230 points), @Bradfan4ever remains in third with 2,916 points (-355 points), HJimenez42 stays in fourth with 2,823 points (-448 points), and the inactive @Wacky Racers rounds out our Top Five with 2,171 points (-1,100 points).

    For those who didn't participate at Daytona International Speedway, it's not too late to join in on the Pick' Em Series for 2018! You may not be eligible for the championship any more due to the 18-race minimum requirement, but you can still compete for bragging rights and to see if you can play the spoiler against potential championship favorites! The Pick' Em thread for the 2018 Quaker State 400 at Kentucky Speedway will be up shortly (in the next half hour or so), so be sure to get your picks in!

    Just be sure to submit your picks in this 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 your first-career Pick' Em victory in your first season of competition like our Daytona champion Bradfan4ever did or Bowman The Showman did at Bristol!
