Default Bonneville Club Nascar Racing Challenge

I know we're 3 races into it already but there are still 33 races to go so I started a Fantasy racing challenge over at 3M

The way it works.
Each race you pick who the top 5 racers will be based on points.
Its free http://www.3mfantasyracing.com/home.asp
You could win a free trip to a Nascar race next year.
You sign up and choose Bonneville Club as the League.
Enter League code. UB542BO
Use the same ID to register as you use here at the Club so we know who you are.
Go to Race tab and make your 5 picks for the race and guess how many points you will gain that week.

To help understand the points and Nascar stuff in general I've included a Fan Guide.

Good luck to all that join

This is a good way to learn about the sport and have a little fun.
www.nascar.com for stats and race schedules etc.

Not bad for my first week.
Picked 4 out of 5 for the drivers for a total of 767 points. I had guessed 762
My Picks were:
Tony Stewart
Kyle Busch
Kasey Kahne
Dale Earnhardt jr.
Matt Kenseth

Next week is Bristol Baby

It wouldn't let me pick this morning, even though the race hadn't started.

I dropped Casey Kane this week for Jeff Gordon.
I figure he'* due and with the short track his car should hold together to the finish

Hope the weather holds for tomorrows race, qualifying was a wash out
