We're reverting back to simpler times for the 2018 points season. Eliminating POPs altogether. Simply track/count regular points, including stage points, and number of wins.

At the end of the regular season reset the points (for all of those who played the majority of the year) as follows

1st..1000pts
2nd..980pts
3rd..970
4th..965
5th..960
6th..955
and -5pts per spot going down.

PLUS add 5pts per regular season win..
After the reset..

Pick one Playoff/Chase driver and one non Playoff/Chase driver, you get combined points PLUS 5pts for a win. Again, no POPs involved. You don't HAVE to pick a playoff driver, you can pick 2 non playoff drivers if you want.

Tie breakers..1) Most wins 2) Most points earned during the playoffs..if those don't work.....then we'll punt I guess..lol

*we start with the actual 500, no dual race points or anything like that.

* Everyone will get ONE drop during the regular season



Chase points after week 10:

Oasis - 1699 2 WINS
wingracer - 1669 1 WIN
racer1812 - 1664 2 WINS
jiml - 1662 1 WIN
Mrs. D - 1636
KA2AEV - 1629 3 WINS
chevyrat - 1628
Johnn27 - 1624
Golddust - 1609 3 WINS
Digit09 - 1577 1 WIN
Peter George - 1471

racer since your the current champ, would you like to set the rules for 2018? Maybe a bit early but you know we can start now and figure it out by at least 10 minutes before Daytona starts.

no way man, I bet 5 minutes before the 500 starts we decide retroactively to award points for the clash and duels. And then the winner of the chase is whoever remembered who they picked for the 24 hours.

Okay if you guys are looking for a good laugh, check out this guys YouTube channel
I stumbled on this at work the other evening by accident. He is one of those people who believe that the Earth is flat and he's gonna try and launch himself up a Mile or so in
a home made rocket from someplace in either California or Arizona! It was supposed to happen today, but I just read that the FAA and another Federal Group got involved and cancelled his launch, something about him launching from a Public place, so he's moving his Launching Pad, A Winabago with pipes on it to a Private site and he's now coming up with all sorts of excuses for him not to be able to launch!
This guy really must be wanting to win a Darwin award for himself!!!
Anyway here's the website

I was reading about this tool the other day. I still can't believe in this day and age there are people who still believe the Earth is flat, we never landed on the moon and rockets are fake and made from blimps. But his rocket is real, steam powered and flies into the atmosflat. My favorite quote from this toolbag was when he said he was still behind on the technology stuff. Crash in peace (pieces) dumbass.

Maybe the rules can be posted to a wiki like some of the other threads and then we don't have to "remember" who said what.

I figured this would fit best in the nascar realm. It's like 1979 Daytona all over again. Only its Brazil. And we saw how that helped the popularity of nascar..

I know in the past we've let the regular season winner set rules for the playoffs/chase but I would rather we set our rules/points for the ENTIRE season before we start this year. That way we all know from start to finish what's going on without any last minute issues or changes.

Anyone with any suggestions of proposals please post them in the next few days, I'll do so as well, and we'll go from there and get things set BEFORE Daytona.

Enjoy the holidays, Merry Christmas and have a safe and Happy New Year.
