If 2 people have the same person, what's the tie breaker?

Try this:

The top 4 pick one of the Champ 4. Each person has to pick a different racer. Picks are made in points order, so Johnn27 picks first and so on.

Now let's make it interesting. The top 4 must also pick someone outside the chase. Again, each person has to pick someone different. But this time, we do it in reverse order! Wing picks first, and up from there.

This way you don't have everyone picking Truex.

For the rest of us bottom feeders, same rules as before, 1 from the chase, 1 from the rest.

My thinking was you could not pick the same person, 1st gets first pick, 4th gets what ever racer is left, pretty much 1 and 4 chance of winning. If I dont make picks this week I'm happy with that.

Points after Phoenix with POP's separate...

racer1812-2668 10 P.O.P's 2 WINS
Johnn27 -2655 29 P.O.P's 5 WINS
Seether -2650 17 P.O.P's 3 WINS
wingracer-2638 26 P.O.P's 4 WINS

Mrs.D -2636 18 P.O.P's 3 WINS
Digit09 -2632 19 P.O.P's 3 WINS
RacerX11 -2614 16 P.O.P's 3 WINS
chevyrat -2610 20 P.O.P's 3 WINS
roadrashracing -2540 17 P.O.P.'s 3 WINS
jiml -2569 12 P.O.P's 2 WINS
KA2AEV -2390 6 P.O.P's 1 WIN
Golddust -2375 6 P.O.P's 1WIN
*peter george - 684 6 P.O.P.'s 1 WIN

Johnnyappleseed needs to decide what he wants to do with the POP's we've earned, how he wants to seed the top 4, and what to do for picks the last race..

If you seed the top 4 by POP's with a 5 pt. drop per spot like I suggested earlier you get...

Johnn27 5015 pts
wingracer 5010 pts
Seether 5005 pts
racer1812 5000 pts

..and the best of the rest with 5th on down

I don't care how we do it, just someone make a decision before it's too late.

I make decisions here all the time Jim. They're just not always favorable People learn to adapt and accept change over time..such as the racing forum..right Jim

I'm in the top 4 regardless I'm simply offering Johnny Walker Gold label a suggestion

Nope, you made yourself do the points but hey I'll take the blame I guess. But I see why you would want to keep the POPs separate now. Since we are following NASCARs lead and they add the POPs in every week and we don't its just time to roll them in and resort the standings accordingly. Otherwise its a waste of time tracking them.

How does this sound -

Top 4 pick 1 championship driver, 1 non-championship driver then get a 3rd driver assigned by qualifying order. Meaning John will get who ever wins the pole, racer gets second and so on. The odds on a tie would be slim but we would use total wins as the tie breaker as usual.

If we have learned anything we now know next year we need to get our act together with the new points system. But at least we have a year under our belt to refer to and have all this in place before Daytona of at least 2025 or maybe 2026. Either way its all in fun.

Talking Points / Championship weekend etc.

Don't u people work?!!?? I like Digits calculations regarding pops and drops , this week the top four are racing heads up for the championship!!!!!

1. Top 4 pick a Playoff driver

2. Top 4 pick and out side the playoff driver

He who scores the most points wins , Top 4 send picks to Digit. Digit will then post picks at race start or soon after
if he is available.

If we need a tie breaker I would then revert to points or wins or we can either pick another car? or pole thing ?
I am open to debate on this item.
