Driver Selections and Points
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:
Once these points are tallied, they will be divided by 2. After the points are divided, the following bonus points will be awarded/deducted:
+10 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.
+15 points for the race winner.
+3 points for each driver finishing the race ahead of MY DRIVER.
My selected driver for the Pure Michigan 400 is: KURT BUSCH
Contestants cannot choose KURT BUSCH as one of their drivers for this race.
