The deadline for submittal of picks for the next race is Friday, June 7th, noon Eastern time.
I'm still 34th. I thought that the check cleared.
But you aint 35th, so you got that going for you..
Harry Gant. I can deal with that.
Just realized I still need to use 11 "C" drivers, with only 2 wild card plate races left. This could be tough.
I'm in a similar boat.
Could be worse, the game's standings leader for the last six races has used only one "C group" driver to date, meaning he'll need to use 14 drivers from that list over the remaining 22 races.
Good thing for him he knows what he's doing . . . . .
Hope you didn't think that just one check was going to do the trick.
That's not how it works in Chicago . . . .
Maybe he knows something we don't. Tony Stewart, Jeff Gordon, Carl Edwards, Dale Jr might all be unretiring soon
But will it payoff when they're forced to climb into the #51 Petty Ware Racing machine.
Here's what I'm thinking ...... C drivers pretty much suck or they have cars that suck.
So I figure giving them and their crew chiefs more time to practice can only help improve their performance before I am forced to pick them.
We'll soon see how that works out.
Humph. Likely story.
That's one way to work the C list strategy.
I pick the no-hope C list guys early... before their one good car gets banged up... before their one good engine gets worn out...
Well, my plan was to get all the C drivers out of the way first , and we see how well that is working for me.
^ oh, ye of little faith.
I just jump between B and C for the most part, I only made 1 pick from the A group as of right now. So I don't know what I'm doing tbh besides just picking some of the lower drivers and saving the good ones.
That was my idea but as I picked the A drivers they didn't finish so well soooooooooooooooo.
@Ashstrodamus, your pick for Michigan is "ineligible."
29th and ready to pounce
At least I got a top 5 from McDowell to start the season. It's been a mixed bag ever since. The only pick I regret is Kurt @ Charlotte.
Driver picks for the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series FireKeepers Casino 400 at Michigan International Speedway are finally posted.
The most popular driver picks are Austin Dillon and Ricky Stenhouse Jr., each selected by five players.
Almirola, Hemric, and Menard were each selected by three players.
Thanks for participating, fellers.
Hmmmm......not a whole lot of Kurt Busch love.
@jws926 the only Lar20n pick
I was surprised to hear he had 3 wins at Michigan. I had to look them up. Didn't recall any of them.
Solid pick that I wanted until I realized I'd already used him.
It was random pick for him and this race.
i used my guy and he let be down.
Shout out to Garrett Smithley
Hoping he wins the last C Main of the season.
good news my guy menard is 200 to 1
So Vegas is backing him too!
Dixon 100% class
We need a Newgarden vs Rossi title fight. Unreal racing
Hitting the bottle Snappy? Me too.
Memo to The Commissioner ...

I've used 5 C-listers to date.
Only 10 more to go.
the best thing about a rain delay is my guy has not let me down yet.
