Howdy Geeks!

It is the month of May and being originally an Indiana guy (and having worked for some teams that ran the 500) I figured that I would start an Indy 500 contest.

I am looking for 11 willing participants for a free 5'er and some souvenirs from this year's race. May even throw in something special. Just respond to the thread and I will put you on the list. The deadline for entry is 11:59 pm Eastern, Friday, May 26th.

Here is the skinny on how I will do this:

There are 33 starters in the race. Qualifying days are May 20th and 21st. On the night of May 21st the starting field is locked in so we will know starters 1-33. On Saturday morning, May 27th, I will do a random draw of our participants starting with the driver in the 33rd position all the way up to 1st. Each Geek will get 3 drivers in the race for scoring.

Scoring: The race will begin on Sunday, May 28th at around 12:12 pm Eastern time (scheduled). Each driver will be assigned points based on his or her official finishing position. For example, your driver starts 12th, but has an incident on lap 1 and is out has an official finishing position of 33, then you get 1 point for that driver, 32 - 2 points, 31 - 3 points all the way to the winner who gets 33 points. I will tally up the points for your 3 drivers and then rank each Geek from 1-11. The contestant who has the most points will be our big winner.

In the event of a tie for 1st for our Geeks, (1) I will award a bonus point to the 3 driver team that led the most laps. (2) In the event of tie there, then I will average out the starting positions of your 3 drivers versus the other person's 3 drivers and award a bonus point to the lowest starting average starting positioned team of 3 drivers.

In the event we don't get a full field of 11 (I hope this isn't the case) then this might just become a drawing.

If we get a good response very early on, I would be open to a second field.

Alright, who's in???

I'm not that into racing but my brother is a big fan so I'll play and give him the gear if I win. If you think that works ok and there's room I'll play. Thanks for the contest regardless, cool idea.

Welp, we are all full, just a mere 6 hours after I hatched this one.

What do you guys think, should I open a second list- same contest just a second round of fun? Same exact rules and stuff as the first.

Let me know. I'd be totally cool with running a second showdown.

No worries, you are in. I was going to do it that way with the prizes but with the Indy GP coming up this weekend, quals next and the race just 2 1/2 weeks away, my travel schedule and lack of planning here put the kibosh on that one. Next year, I will have a bit more time on my hands to pull it together if I can start this in mid April. I was almost in the Superbowl squares thing here this year and saw how that was done, so I see what that looks like.

Tons of ideas on how make this a big one next year. Would love to add something for the Derby (next year), the US Open (golf), the British Open, and the Masters (next year) also. Just think this is a way to add some excitement.
