With the season getting it's "official" start this weekend, I wanted to invite anyone interested to join us in a very fun game during the Nascar season.

The name of the thread is "2012 Pick Three", and you'll find it in the "Nascar is the game ..who is your driver?" Sparkteam under the general team discussion forum.

It's very simple: each week before qualifying you simply post the three drivers you want to pick that you think will do well that week. That's all there is to it!

Scoring: each of your picks will score the same number of points as the driver actually does for that week's race. In addition to these points, anyone who happens to pick the pole winner will receive 5 bonus points, as well as anyone who happens to pick the race winner.

I've participated in this game for 3 years now, and I can tell you that it becomes a very fun & competitive game. There are 3 of us that have done it all 3 yrs that I have, and we gained a few more last year that really made the game enjoyable. We have a lot of fun chatting about the races on the thread, and of course, a little smack talk every now & then too! LoL

We'd love to have anyone join us who would like to... last year's winner actually joined us after the Daytona and still managed to pull out the season championship!

(BTW - this week, there is an exception to the "before qualifying" rule since the 500's qualifying is a little complicated, so don't think that you'll be starting late... and for this reason, there are no pole points for this week either)

    Hi, I don't have tv anymore, so not sure I would even be able to name 3 racers. Anyway I will check out the thread. Which team is it on? Thanks for letting me know. Angie

    Glad that you joined us... it's always good to have more Nascar fans in the game... esp. when they are fellow HMS fans!

    Funny, my license plate is NSCRCHK... and it's on my Jeff Gordon edition Monte Carlo!

    I'm coming on board for the Pick Three. Thanks, I'm sure my boy will make one of the Top three. I see you are a Jeff Gordon fan, well at least we are on the same team. I'm Junior all the way. My license plate is "EARNH88" Got it for my birthday 3 years ago.
    God luck on Sunday to all our drivers.

    JSALERNO - if you have trouble finding it, post on my page and I'll send you a link.

    ANGIEN9 - the races are on Sat eve or Sun afternoons... you don't have to watch the races to participate... you just have to pick 3 drivers before qualifying (and I always post what time that deadline is), and you can do that from the Nascar webpage. If you'd like to join us, we'd love to have you.

    I have a couple friends that are Nascar fans. Me, not much. Not sure I follow exactly how to do the game. Guess it must be the time...I only had 4 hours sleep and it is 2:36 in the morning now.

    When are the races?? If they are on Sunday I probably wouldn't watch. I don't usually turn on the tv on Sundays.

    I.wish you the best of luck during this nascar season!!
