STEEM Cup Series Contest


Race Information


Apache Warrior 400 presented by Lucas Oil
Sunday, October 1, 2017 – 2:00pm ET
Dover International Speedway – Dover, Delaware

The Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series heads back to Dover this week for the Apache Warrior 400. The Dover International Speedway is 1-mile oval track. The race is scheduled for 400 laps, with two 120-lap stages and one final 160-lap stage to determine the race winner.

Martin Truex Jr. is still in the lead for the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series playoff, edging out Kyle Larson by 24 points after the first two races. Kyle Busch, Brad Keselowski, and Denny Hamlin round out the top five.

The current weather forecast for Sunday’s race time in Dover has temperatures in the upper-60s with light wind and no expected precipitation.

You can find the drivers’ updated qualifying times/positions prior to race time at the following link: NASCAR Race Center.



Driver Selections and Points


Please note the changes that have been made for the remainder of the season and the addition of the playoff format below.

Each contestant will choose three drivers for the weekly STEEM Cup Series from the field of qualifying drivers. Based on the number of drivers and the final results of the race, drivers will be assigned points as follows:


ResultsPoints Awarded
1st place40
2nd place39
3rd place38
......
38th place3
39th place2
40th place1


Once these points are tallied, they will be divided by 2. After the points are divided, the following bonus points will be awarded:

+15 points for unique driver combinations. If two or more contestants select the same drivers, then only the first contestant to post those selections will earn the bonus points. ENTRIES THAT ARE NOT UNIQUE DRIVER COMBINATIONS WILL NOT BE ELIGIBLE FOR ANY OF THE ADDITIONAL BONUS POINTS.

+20 points for the race winner.

+5 points for each driver finishing the race ahead of MY DRIVER.

My selected driver for the Apache Warrior 400 is: AUSTIN DILLON
Contestants cannot choose AUSTIN DILLON as one of their drivers for this race.



STEEM Cup Series Playoff Format


After the completion of the Apache Warrior 400 on October 1st (this week's race), the season points leader and all contestants within 400 points of the leader will have 100 bonus points applied to their season total.

All weekly and monthly contests will continue as scheduled with regular scoring and separate prize pools.
