... set up a NASCAR pot?

A NASCAR pot uses 1st and 2nd place car numbers to determine the winner of the pot.
 
To set up a NASCAR pot on the Host a Pot page:
  • Use 1st and 2nd place car numbers. - Instead of opposing football teams' scores, let 1st and 2nd place car numbers at the end of the race determine the pot's winning numbers.

  •  
  • Win Period should be "Final." - There are no quarter scores in a NASCAR race, so the Win Period should be "Final."

  •  
  • No Bad Tie Consolation - In a NASCAR race (or any race with a field of at least 10 competitors), it is equally likely for the 1st place and 2nd place car numbers to end in any digit between 0 and 9, so there are no "bad" numbers in a NASCAR race like 2&2 and 5&5 in a football pot.

  •  
  • Consider awarding two winners with "No Teams." - If you want to have two pot winners instead of one, use the "No Teams" option to apply winning numbers regardless of which car comes in 1st or 2nd place.
     
    NOTE: There can still be just one winner in a "No Teams" pot - if the winning numbers are tied.
TIP: Do yourself a favor: Once you set them up, save your NASCAR pot rules for quick and easy set up the next time around!
