Here we go again. Here is a link to last year's even: http://www.cigargeeks.com/community/forums/thread-view.asp?tid=4671...

Once again it is the month of May (almost) and being originally an Indiana guy I figured that I would start another Indy 500 contest.

I am looking for 11 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 25th.

Here is the skinny on how I will do this:

There are 33 starters in the race. Qualifying days are May 19th and 20th. On the night of May 20th the starting field is locked in so we will know starters 1-33. On Saturday morning, May 26th, 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 27th 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.

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

I am looking for CONUS or GWN players, who are active on the site or semi regulars here preferably Vet status or better or with a rec from an established Geek (doing this one in response to some crazy spam lately). I reserve the right to refuse service to anyone or to modify the contest but will do everything I can to get everyone in.

We had 2 fields last year with a great turn out and our 2 winners received a sampling of 5 that we enjoyed on race day and a 100th Running Special Edition Diecast Pace-Car Model. Last year, winners were announced on Sunday night after the race.

Alright, who's in???

I am usually in the Penthouse Paddock area at the Start/Finish Line on the outside of the track. Heck of a view of the whole front straight from there. There were several year in the pit area though.

Okay, we have a full field of 11 with Nirab getting his entry in.

I would be willing to open up a second field of entries but I will have to have the full 11 for that.

Thanks for the support everybody.
