    Another SCARTS Shootout is in the books and Dore goes two straight winning a thriller at Daytona.  He joins polesitter Delux on the front row for the Daytona 500 on March 15th.  The rest of the finishing order sets the grid for next Wednesday plus Jordan's qualifying run guarantees him an 11th place start (even though he didn't race the Shootout) should more players join us then.
    The others will lineup based on practice session speeds behind Jordan.  Jordan left prior to pitstall selections so he will choose first before the new players.

    Bonus points were scored for the Top 5 - 10 points for Dore, 6 for Burnout, 4 for JonnO, 2 for Szymek and 1 for Charter.  Those points will be added into the points scored in the Daytona 500.

    The Daytona 500 will be 125 laps (500 km) and given the action we've seen from the Shootout, this should be a barnburner.  A practice session will precede the race, likely a 25 lap run and then we will jump straight to the race since the grid is already set.

    As a reminder, this is the first Cup season using the new points structure in which we used during the Racin' Edge Truck Series:  the winner scores 30 points, 2nd - 25, 3rd - 22, 4th - 19, 5th - 17, 6th - 15, down to 20th - 1.  Top 5 runs are favorable now and have more weight than finishes 6th and lower.  We saw this new structure come to life with Burnout being able to catch Dore for the truck title having large point gains to eat into Dore's lead much quicker.

    However during the truck series, we upped the bonus points for leading 10% to +2 points and +4 for leading the most laps.  That change was due to the higher point totals being possible now but it led to four impossible point values.  We are changing that to +1 bonuses for EVERY 10% of the race led so 10% has a little less weight but you can score up to a +5 for leading half of the race distance.  This opens up all point values and variable points earned per race.  As a result, no more most lap led bonus - so its worth it to race hard to hit that next 10% led bracket even if you know you can't lead the most laps.  This should create some good racing all race long!

    I hope to see you all on Wednesday to kick off another great season of SCARTS!!
