Hear ye, Hear ye !!!

The racing-forums.com BOLD PREDICTION game is back for the 14th consecutive year.

Board users are invited to submit one, and only one, prediction that concerns the upcoming NASCAR 2024 racing season.

Predictions can concern virtually anything related to one of the three premier NASCAR series (Cup, Xfinity, Craftsman Truck).

The predicted event must occur sometime after the prediction is made and before the end of the day of the last race of the 2024 season.

All predictions, to be posted to this thread, must be as specific as possible (especially numeric predictions) and something that can be easily verified.

Game management reserves the right to reject any prediction that is considered to be something that cannot be easily verified.

Before making a prediction, check the thread to avoid duplicating one that's been previously posted.

If identical predictions are made, only the first one to be posted will be accepted.

The deadline for prediction submittals is set at noon eastern time, Sunday, February 18th, 2024, the scheduled date of the 2024 Daytona 500.

A spreadsheet listing all accepted predictions will be compiled and then posted prior to the start of the Daytona 500.

At the end of the racing season all predictions will be evaluated and an updated spreadsheet will be posted showing the accuracy, or inaccuracy, of each prediction.

A list of the predictions proven to be true will be posted on a new, separate thread for all to vote on as to which prediction proven to be true was the MOST BOLD.

A list of predictions that gathered the greatest percentage of votes each year is as follows:

2023 - 71.4% - @Zerkfitting - Two drivers will be suspended by NASCAR for a least one race during the 2023 season

2022 - 41.3% - @hmmm298 - There will be at least 5 wins by drivers who have never won a Cup series race before this season

2021 - 55.3% - @Zerkfitting - A non-charter team wins a (Cup) race

2020 - 37.5% - @be9ak7ts16 - Chase Elliott wins his first Cup title

2019 - 37.2% - @LewTheShoe - At least one 2019 Cup winner will fail to make the playoff field

2018 - 47.6% - @Snappy D - Matt Kenseth is driver of the #6 car by the 2nd half of the year

2017 - 56.1% - @SlicedBread22 - No Chevy's in the Final (Championship) Four

2016 - 43.5% - @Zerkfitting - Tony Stewart will win a race this (2016) season

2015 - game thread lost

2014 - 72.5% - @Wrangler1 - HMS (#5, #24, #48, and #88) WILL NOT be among the final four eligible for the title

2013 - 47.2% - @BobbyFord - Matt Kenseth will get 5 wins in the JGR #20

2012 - 50.0% - @FenderBumper - Brad Keselowski wins 5 or more races

2011 - 46.2% - @dpkimmel2001 - Paul Menard will win his first Cup race with RCR in 2011


GOOD LUCK TO ALL !!!!
 
Chase Elliot will get caught racing with Tungsten dental implants on all of his left side teeth and be suspended for several races. Nascar doesn't tech the teeth and the plan was to use the advantage to help with more left side wight on the ovals.

The diabolical plan will also include RF's own @Dr_B_UNC being named as the Dr that installed the implants.
 
Every test at the most random tunes I’ll think of f an awesome idea for this thread Abe when it gets posted I totally can’t receiver any of them. Gina give it a bit before I make my prediction

SHR wins more Cup races than Penske and Ryan Blaney goes winless
 
Game management memo to all interested in playing:

If a prediction receives a "like" from pjmolo, then that prediction has been accepted as submitted.

A prediction such as "Brad K wins 2 races in 2024" will be interpreted as "2 or more" unless otherwise specified by the prognosticator.

Posts submitting a prediction that 1) contain multiple unrelated components, 2) is considered to be overly vague, or 3) is something considered to be not easily verified, will receive a reply that rejects the prediction or asks for clarification.
In other words, the beatings will continue until the moral improves. :owquitit:
 
A driver will win 8 poles in the Cup series.

I thought I'd do a little bragging:

Bold Prediction 3.jpg
 
Chase Elliott gets a new crew chief sometime in 2024 and/or before the game vote ends.
The predicted event must occur sometime after the prediction is made and before the end of the day of the last race of the 2024 season.

The prediction that "Chase Elliott gets a new crew chief sometime in 2024" is accepted.

As indicated in the game's rules, "and/or before the game vote ends" is considered to be irrelevant and not part of the prediction.
 
That's the type of prediction I usually wind up making. A good chance of coming true but not at all likely to be voted Bold.

See I’m of the opposite, I find the odds & past data of Denny Hamlin to be a champion to be quite low, however if it does happen, it will be a BOLD prediction.
