Hello and welcome to TMR Game Week 6.
This post accepts entries for the Las Vegas NASCAR Sprint Cup race which is the only event this week.
Thinking of joining in? If you place your first entry during the first 8 weeks of the game you will receive 80% of the lowest player’s score from any weeks you missed. That brings you into contention whilst applying a small penalty for lateness, the rest is up to you!
Each week you pick 10 drivers with a maximum of 7 from a single championship. This is the last of a run of three NASCAR-only weeks so I’m looking for 7 Cup drivers please.
See this page for the game rules.
Email reminders will be sent on Thursdays or Fridays by either myself or Sebastian. Please leave a valid email address in the comment form. If you do not wish to receive reminders please let us know, otherwise we’ll assume we’re okay to send them. Also let us know (privately if you prefer) if you would like to use a different address to the one you use here.
The deadline for entries is Saturday morning at 6am GMT / 1am ET. Read on for results..
Race Results – Top Ten
|Week 5||NASCAR Sprint Cup|
|20||Dale Earnhardt Jr|
After the ups and downs of Daytona it was back to some form of reality for the Cup regulars as the top drivers return to the front. Phoenix is a drivers circuit and Kyle Busch won the support races on Friday and Saturday, he wasn’t so dominant in the Cup race but was there when it mattered – until Gordon powered through for his first win in 2 years!
|Player||Sprint Cup||Week 5|
|14||*The Crooked Cap||126||126|
Well done Jackie and Maverick, a VivaF1.com sweep! Sebastian and I take up joint 3rd ahead of a closely-following Jay.
James and The Speedgeek bring up the rear of those who entered, the leader and the tailender both scoring the same proves that anyone can do it. Andy – you really need to start winning!
* The Crooked Cap was awarded 80% of the lowest score by a full-entry due to not submitting an entry.
Do see Sebastian’s recap of the scores to find out how you reached these totals. Jackie, Maverick and Jay correctly predicted the top four finishers.
|10||7||-3||The Crooked Cap||266||126||392||43|
James retains the lead. Jackie and The Crooked Cap switch places. Maverick regains ground lost to the field, and the midfield is very tightly packed. Let’s hope it stays nice and close for a little while longer!
NASCAR Sprint Cup (NSC): Kobalt Tools 400, Las Vegas Motor Speedway
This is a quick 1.5 mile tri-oval. Among the IndyCar $5m talk I learned Las Vegas is regarded as a fairly easy oval to drive, very much the opposite of last weekend’s Phoenix oval which requires hard driving. This makes the Nevada race a bit of a lottery.. Entry List.
After this week we have a gap in the schedule where the Bahrain GP used to be, which gives you all time to rest up ahead of the first multi-race weekend of the year the following week – we’ll see races for ALMS (ILMC), MotoGP and NASCAR.
