2008 Sprint Cup Championship

Welcome to the 2008 Sprint Cup Series Championship! 32 players will be racing their way around the tracks of the Sprint Cup Series to determine who will be the 2008 Sprint Cup Champion! This tournament will follow the real life schedule for the Sprint Cup Series, and each player will choose to represent a single driver for the duration of the season. PREMIUM MEMBERSHIP IS REQUIRED FOR THIS TOURNAMENT.

Gameplay Details:
To begin the season, the 32 players will be divided into 4 separate race groups by their current CC score. These groups will then be given the first 5 races of the season to play simultaneously. All games will feature 8 players. When all 5 games for each group are complete, the groups will be reseeded according to the player's position in the Sprint Cup Standings. This will happen after every 5 games until the regular season is complete. Once the regular season is complete, we will move on to the Chase for the Sprint Cup as detailed below.

Players will earn points towards the standings as outlined in the scoring section below. These points will be used to determine the top 8 players who will advance to the final 10 races of the season.

NOTE: Nearly all of the tracks are set up with Escalating cards, but there are a couple that have Flat Rate. Also, almost every track is set up with sunny skies, but there are 2 or 3 with some cloudy weather as well. ;) This is to provide just a little bit of mixture to the tournament while still allowing the games to finish in a timely manner.

All games have a 50 round cap. After 50 rounds I will determine finishing order using total armies via BOB. I would strongly suggest that you don't let your game go to 50 rounds.

Chase for the Sprint Cup Details
The top 8 players in the standings will advance to the "Chase for the Sprint Cup" after the first 26 races have been played. The top player will have their points adjusted to 5000, and each player below them will have 10 less points for each place down the list. Also, each player in the top 8 will receive an additional 10 bonus points added on for each win they have had thus far. Only these 8 players will be able to have a chance at the tournament title. All other players will be eliminated at that point. The players in the Chase will then be scored as normal for the final 10 races of the season. The player with the most points at the end of the Chase will be crowned champion.

Scoring:
1st Place: 185 pts
2nd Place: 170 pts
3rd Place: 160 pts
4th Place: 150 pts
5th Place: 144 pts
6th Place: 138 pts
7th Place: 132 pts
8th Place: 129 pts

NOTE: Failure to show up for a race will result in the race being recreated as a 7-player game and the offending player will receive a 25 point penalty to their score. If you miss 3 races during the course of the season you will be replaced by a substitute driver.

That's because Scott Dixon isn't a Sprint Cup driver. ;)

Everyone has been added to the list. :)
