May 20, 2017

Congratulations To Frank Page, the 2016 All-Star Winner!

The fourteenth annual Lucky Dog All-Star Race will take place on May 20, 2017. To be eligible for the race you must have met at least these criteria:

1. Having won a race between the 2016 All-Star Race and 2017 All-Star Race.

2. Be an active member of the Cup series.

3. If not having won, then be a previous winner of the All-Star Race.

For those Cup members that are not eligible, they can still participate in the race. However, they will be grouped into a separate pool called the Lucky Dog Showdown. The member that scores the most points in that pool will be considered the Lucky Dog Showdown winner. The winner will advance to the All-Star Race.

How To Play

The All-Star race is a non-points event. Those points that you receive will not be added into the standings. The All-Star race is mainly about pride and prestige, since only race winners are invited to participate in it. The winner of this race will not have it count towards their total wins. The only time this race was counted in total wins was in the first year of the league, when this was run as a points race. This is also a separate race where you can wager money. See the All-Star Cash challenge below.

You will pick the Top 10 Finishers of the Sprint Cup All-Star Race. The point breakdown is as follows:

Top 10 prediction points: If you correctly predict a driver to finish somewhere in the top 10, you will receive 10 points for each driver that does.

On the Mark Bonus Points: If you correctly pick a driver's spot in the 10, you will receive 25 points plus bonus points depending on the position.

1st place: 25 points + 50 bonus points: 75 total points

2nd place: 25 points + 45 bonus points: 70 total points

3rd place: 25 points + 40 bonus points: 65 total points

4th place: 25 points + 35 bonus points: 60 total points

5th place: 25 points + 30 bonus points: 55 total points

6th place: 25 points + 25 bonus points: 50 total points

7th place: 25 points + 20 bonus points: 45 total points

8th place: 25 points + 15 bonus points: 40 total points

9th place: 25 points + 10 bonus points: 35 total points

10th place: 25 points + 5 bonus points: 30 total points

Winner Bonus: If you correctly pick the winner anywhere inside the top 10 you will receive an additional 15 bonus points.

1-2 Spot Bonus Points: If you don't pick a driver's exact finish, you can get points if you are near the spot where he finishes. If you correctly predict a driver within two spots of where he finishes, you will receive 10 bonus points. If you correctly predict a driver within one spot of where he finishes, you will receive 15 bonus points. The driver must finish in the top 10 though. (You won't get points for a driver if he finishes 11th and you picked him 10th).

Sprint Showdown Bonus: Correctly pick which driver will advance from the All-Star Showdown race to the All-Star race: There are three segments in the All-Star race. If your pick wins one of the segments then you will receive 25 points. If your pick advances from the fan vote then you will receive 15 points.

Therefore, If you correctly pick the winner you will receive a total of 100 points for that driver. 15 points for picking the winner, 75 points for the on the mark bonus and 10 points for placing in the top 10. If you correctly choose the 2nd place finisher you will receive a total of 80 points... 70 points for on the mark bonus, and 10 points for placing within the top 10.

Tiebreakers: In case of a tie in points between two or more teams, ties will be broken via the following criteria:

1. The team with the most top 10 placings

2. The team with the most exact placings

3. The team that has picked the most highest finishing driver that the other team does not have

IMPORTANT - Since this is a different format from normal races, your picks can not be carried over from the previous week. You must submit new picks for the All Star Challenge.

You can not select a driver more than once in your picks. If you do, only the highest driver will be counted. You will receive no credit for the same driver selected further down your lineup.

All-Star Cash Challenge: You have the opportunity to wager money on this race. The entry fee is $5 per member. The fee must be paid before the race, if it is not received, you will not be eligible to play for cash. The race winner (or highest finisher in the Cash Challenge) will get the whole pot. You do not have to be in the All-Star field to play the Cash Challenge. The teams competing in the Cash challenge will be grouped among themselves. Please visit the Money Pit page for payment options.
