Join Leader Publications’ NASCAR contestPublished 9:51pm Thursday, February 23, 2012
The field is set for the Daytona 500 Sunday.
But have you joined the Leader Publications NASCAR contest yet?
There is still time to get in on the contest that could net you a $1,500 Amazon gift certificate if you win the national prize.
Each week the national leader will win a NASCAR Fathead wall graphic of their choice.
Locally, Leader Publications is giving $100 to its top score for the Daytona 500.
Second place in the Leader Publications group will win windshield wipers and a free complete vehicle inspection from Millin Automotive Repair.
Not only can you compete against the national an local fields, but you can get your friends and family together and create your own private or public group.
The Fireside Tap and Grill in Edwardsburg has created a public group and is encouraging others to join in the fun.
They are providing their winners a $10 gift card to the restaurant each week and a $100 gift card to the overall winner.
Here is how you play:
For each race, pick the drivers you think will finish in first through 10th place for the race.
Picks must be submitted 15 minutes before the race is scheduled to start.
Entrants will be awarded points depending on how the driver’s they select finish the race.
First place is worth 150 points, second place is worth 125 points, third place is worth 100 points, fourth place is worth 80 points and fifth place is worth 78 points.
The number of points are reduced by two points for each subsequent place from 6th place (76 points) to 43rd place (2 points). Drivers who finish in 44th place and beyond will not receive any points.
The total points for the 10 drivers you selected for the race becomes the team score.
There is a 25-point bonus for each driver that comes in the exact place you picked the driver to finish, e.g., if you picked a driver to finish in second place and the driver finishes in second, you will receive a 25 point bonus to the team score.
