Sorry I'm a bit late, but welcome all again to the Daytona 500 picking ceremony! Anyways this first session is just for bragging rights, like I said, and any driver combinations are game, so I don't think I need to describe any rules. We do need to get to 19 people, but we can wait until week 3 to try and grab people. Just one bit of bonus stuff to take care of:

1st place this session gets +4 to the next session.

2nd place gets +3

3rd place gets +2

That should be good, now lets get to the handicap lists:

+3 handicap: 13th through 20th

Mark Martin

Jaime McMurray (no bonus at Daytona)

Ryan Newman

Joey Logano (+5 handicap Daytona only)

Juan Pablo Montoya 

David Reutimann

A.J. Allmendinger

Kasey Kahne

(Jeff Burton Daytona only)

+5 handicap: 21st through 28th

Dale Earnhardt Jr. (no bonus at Daytona)

Martin Truex Jr.

Paul Menard

David Ragan

Brad Kesolowski

Marcos Ambrose

Elliot Sadler

Regan Smith

+7 handicap: 29th through 35th

Sam Hornish Jr.

Scott Speed

Bobby LaBonte

Not a problem Edwardsfan, I've gotten accustomed to your last minuteness... and your bad spelling of driver names.

Not sure I understand the handicap part, but I'll figure it out as we go.  I'll play safe the first week.
River Rat, because this is Daytona, some people perform better here than most other tracks, and vice versa, so some of the handicaps may be off from the usual. However, the handicap list works where you get that handicap added to your total score, so say I used A.J. Allmendinger (+5) and Joey Logano (+3), I would add 8 points to your score after the end of the race, even if these two drivers finish last and/or first. And glad to see you in the game.
