Hello~*! Okay I originally had in mind to hold a sort of Idol♥quiz tournament for this giveaway to have something a bit out there :P! and new…..however it would have required 10 entries to play and it missed by one as there are 9 eligible entries for this giveaway making the October 9th deadline. Original entry post can be found here. So when in doubt, I always turn to racing♥ and this is really perfect actually as it’s the final 6 races of the season upcoming which will crown a champion at Homestead Miami!
~Eligible entries are….
Johpan, CK, Mina, Cat, Kitsy, Hydeo, Mousoufest, & Muse!
Firstly you may be thinking…..Hmm….racing that may be difficult for me to play along with as I’m not familiar with any of the drivers or tracks or racing in general =/. But here there are so many variables to this sport which will make the playing~field I think most even for everyone =D!
Like no matter how knowledgeable or unfamiliar you are with racing so much of the results are in the winds of luck and chance as in unforeseeable things like tires suddenly exploding due to over~wear or faults in them or like engines going bad or like speeding penalties on pit road or a slow pit stop or even David Reutimann sliding into your driver and destroying his car into the outside wall =O!…..so so many things can occur both good and bad during so many miles of racing~ =O!! So everyone has a good chance =)!!
So how do you make it to victory lane? Here’s how…
On the next five race~weekends which are: (Oct. 16th, Oct. 24th, Oct. 31th, Nov. 7th & Nov. 14th) each entry will choose 4 drivers to represent their team by each preceding Thursday. You may choose any drivers out of the current top 20 which will be listed at the ending of this post and the same list will be used for each upcoming week. And here’s the fun catch will will also serve as an equalizer =)……you may use each driver out of the 20 listed below only once. So for example if you chose Jeff Gordon, Carl Edwards, Juan Montoya and Kasey Kahne for Oct. 16th’s race you wouldn’t be able to use any of them for any of the remaining races and so on. So in summary by choosing 4 drivers per race and with 5 races upcoming you’ll eventually be choosing all 20 drivers once from the list below by Nov. 7th’s race. So you may want to mix them up ranking wise amongst every race or not as it’s totally up to you and just keep in mind that even though drivers are ranked really high in this list it doesn’t necessarily equate to great results come race~day as again….anything can happen!..and you may need to watch out for David Reutimann :P! I’m just kidding….although he did crash Kyle Busch into the wall recently =O.
After each race is finished your four drivers you chose for that day will then have their finishing spots added together to equal their average finish. So for example if your drivers finished in 5th, 19th, 3rd and 10th…..your average finishing score would be 9.25.
Your average finishing score which will be added together each week from Oct. 16th to Nov. 14th will determine your seeding for the finale on Nov. 21st. So think golf, as in the lower your score the better!
On the week of Nov. 21st (the finale to decide the winner~*) everyone’s average finishing score will all be set back to zero! And here’s where your seeding comes into most important play. The entry who’s seated 1st (has the lowest combined average finishing score over the previous five weeks) gets to choose their drivers first with the second seed choosing second and so on. For the finale only 2 drivers will be chosen by each entry and the team which has the best (lowest) combined average finish by their 2 drivers will win AKB48’s “AKB1/48 Idol to Koishitara” ＼(^o^)／☆！！！
Okay, so for race #1 which will occur on Oct. 16th at Charlotte Motor Speedway (psst…there’s lots of resources online to check to see which drivers have faired much better at each race track and by clicking~* on the driver name links below you’ll get to see an average stat for the upcoming race track =) ) please choose your 4 drivers for this event by posting your 4 driver choices here by Thursday the 14th midnight (HST) =). Sorry for the late posting and I’ll do my best to have the upcoming week’s giveaway postings up much earlier along with everyone’s up to date seed rankings.
If you have any questions or uncertainties please don’t hesitate to ask =).
