    Just so everyone knows, on the confirmation page after you submitted your selections there will be a link so you can see or edit your submission after you submit it.:tup:

    [​IMG]

    There is also a link to see who has made picks and who they picked for the non-points rounds.:cheers:

    I would remove the ability to see who picked who. Being able to see who they picked would ruin close points battles because the leader could pick the same drivers as the person behind him and guarantee a win.

    Just my 2 cents.

    I plan on doing it for the 2 non-points rounds, the normal races will just be the usual page saying how much a certain driver has been picked but not by who.:tup:

    Coming in as a rookie. I may not be the most knowledgeable NASCAR fan out here, but will go by the instincts when making picks. :)

    can't believe this is already upon us once again. time flies by

    just a quick question so that i am clear on this:
    consecutive picks points will be applied at the end of the regular season, before the bracket rounds begin correct?

    My pick isn't on there (Terry)
    I changed my picks and everything just to include him too :( I had to go with other 3 best in the field.

    We all are for the first couple rounds.:lol::tup:

    They are applied after Homestead, they also have no effect on the bracket.

    Sorry, didn't think anyone would want to pick him so I didn't go back and change it.

    If you would like to pick him just post your 3 drivers in this thread and I will cound him.:cheers:

    Yes, tonight's race is just to get a head start on consecutive picks.

    Here is the first update of the year. You'll probably notice some people on there that didn't submit any selections, these are people who finished in the top-10 last year, they will be removed if they don't make any selections in round 2.

    [​IMG]

    Next is the first points race, which is also the Daytona 500.

    A few things I have to point out as well.

    1) The drivers you selected are available for round 2 as round 1 was a non-points event.

    2) I have taken away the ability to edit selections using the same form as Google doesn't update then timestamp when the form submission is edited. If you want to change selections you will have to fill out a new form.

    3) Don't expect standings to always be up this fast, Tuesday will probably be the norm, especially when BTCC and F1 start.

    Thanks to everyone who is already participating, glad to be back running this and hope it's a great season(both in the real and fantasy competitions).

    I am pleased to announce in advance that my top pick to win the 500 will be Joe Nemechek.
    If he magically somehow misses the race (And I really doubt that), Terry Labonte will be it again (And he's clinched to be in thanks to the PCP).

    Just my luck, non scoring round and two of my picks came 1st & 2nd. :lol:
    Ah, cool. I was just about to ask about that. :tup:

    And with your luck, he will S&P again.

    PSN:ganon83

    Actually no, nobody has ever parked in the 500 (With a quarter million just for starting, there is no reason to because you are making good money regardless).
    Labonte was a bit more understandable (Small team with no chance of winning in the first place with at the very most two Gen 6 cars).

    I'm going out on a limb with 2 of my 500 picks:

    1. #10 Danica Patrick
    2. #20 Matt Kenseth
    3. #33 Austin Dillon
