    I'll take "sponsor woes" to mean a lack of a sponsor and "competitive surge" to mean a rise in the point standings but define for me:

    1) "a 1st tier team"
    2) "a premier sponsor"

    Final decision..

    At least 2 of "The Big 3" (Harvick, Kyle Busch and Truex) will not make the final four in 2019.

    And

    Martin Truex Jr. will finish the 2019 season with the lowest average finish of the JGR drivers.

    1) Yes, specifically the loss of a sponsor (I'm looking at you CGR, but it could happen to others).
    2) A substantial rise in the points standing, let's call it "top 15" (My own hopeful thinking, I'd like to see Bubba make some noise).

    The "sponsor woes" and the "competitive surge" parts of your prediction I can work with.

    However, I need clarification as to what "a 1st tier team" and "a premier sponsor" mean.

    Those terms are too vague.

    As somewhat vague predictions continue to be submitted, those that lack specificity will simply not be accepted.

    I'll respond to those unacceptable predictions with a simple post that includes the prognosticators name so as to trigger an "alert" in the upper right corner of his forum page. Without clarification, the vague prediction won't make the final list.

    If a prediction is judged to be acceptable you'll find that I "like" it.

    In addition to being specific, a prediction also must be something that can be "easily" verified.

    Last year's predictions included a very specific one related to pit stop times. It wasn't accepted, however, due to the lack of readily available information regarding the elapsed time of each and every pit stop.

    As stated in a previous post, if you make a prediction and then follow it up with another one, specify if the follow-up prediction is in place of, or in addition to, the earlier prediction.

    Finally, my original post stated that "predictions must concern events that happen from the time that the green flag flies at Daytona until the checkered flag flies at Homestead."

    Instead, so as to include NASCAR related shenanigans happening prior to racing at Daytona, I'll accept any prediction that concerns an event that happens anytime after the prediction is made up until the season champion is determined at the end of the season.

    @Brentford

    Unless you indicate otherwise, I'll take that to mean at least one race and at least one win in the Monster Energy Cup Series.

    @kkfan91

    By "National Series" I take that to mean any of the following: Gander Outdoors Truck, Xfinity, or Monster Energy Cup

    I'm going to leave it open-ended for any of the top 3 series so long as that will be allowed. If not, I'll say Xfinity.

    By "bumped" I'll take that to mean to a later date and not just a delayed start on the scheduled date.

    @kkfan91

    Upon further review it appears that you've made four predictions as "Kurt Busch misses the playoffs for CGR and announces his retirement" is actually two separate predictions.

    Something has gotta go . . . .

    I'd be just fine if Bruton Smith gave us all box seats for the Roval. I consider that one more likely.
