~The race for AKB48♥’s giveaway starts here っo(*´∀`)o!!(Updated post)

Hirano Aya♥AKB1 48 Idol to koishitara LE first press edition psp game 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 two as there are 8 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 5 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!

Hirano Aya♥♥

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 =)!!

Hirano Aya♥♥♥

So how do you make it to victory lane? Here’s how…

~Game rules~

On the next four race~weekends which are: (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 16 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 16 listed below only once. So for example if you chose Jeff Gordon, Carl Edwards, Juan Montoya and Kasey Kahne for Oct. 24th’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 4 races upcoming you’ll eventually be choosing all 16 drivers once from the list below by Nov. 14th’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. 24th 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 four 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 (complete list of 16 drivers will be available again) 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. 24th at Martinsville 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 21st midnight (HST) =).

Please watch for upcoming posts after each race~day to choose your next four drivers for that weekend’s event and failure to enter your drivers by the Thursday midnight (HST) deadline will result in forfeiture =/.

If you have any questions or uncertainties please don’t hesitate to ask =).

~Your driver’s list~

1. Jimmie Johnson

2.  Denny Hamlin

  1. hydeo says:

    u forget one player no ??

    is not 9 entries ??

    and MB where u watch the race ??

    well i go think tomorrow in who chose :3


    • Oh no it’s 8 entries as I was thinking about it later and I think Risuzu’s was a comment only and not an actual entry….and lol omg! Hydeo :O!!!! you’ve left me 19 comments as I was just checking my mail hmm wish you could consolidate them into less entries as some I don’t think actually are related to those posts anymore =/.


    • I think there is online t.v.?….although I’m the last person you’d ask for help (._.;) I don’t know how to connect =/. The races are broadcast on ESPN/ABC but think there must be a way for you to watch or I hope~* =).


    • And Hydeo you showing interest~* in watching the race…..thank you that means the world~♥ to me arigatou~ o(*´∀`)o゛♥。


      • hydeo says:

        sorry about all the replyes so… dont need answer ^^
        is that why i ask for ur email too ^^”

        why ?? u like so much the races hehe ??
        i like nascar, but never thinked where watch hehe ^^

        so my entries…

        Denny Hamlin
        Jeff Gordon
        Kurt Busch
        Juan Montoya


        • No wait I just sent you most of them back to you (。ーωー。)。。。I just had a moment yesterday when I saw my inbox :O. Sorry (._.;).

          Hmm….I’m thinking Hydeo knows about the short~tracks =)….I like your choices. I used to not pay any attention to racing at all but the day you remember seeing Jeff♥Gordon for the very first time in victory lane by chance you just don’t forget and from then my ~♥~ of racing began (*´∀`) lol call me shallow but I needed to start somewhere (人∀`*)。。。


          • hydeo says:

            ahaha sometimes i has watched nascar, and play some games from ^^, but i thnk all the drivers are news from the time i has watched, i go take some infos about the times of the races and watch in the day that occours ^^

            humm thinking if go be the first time i win something heaheha


            • I hope~* you can find a broadcast to watch as it’ll be fun being able to see how your drivers choices are fairing during the race~♥. You can base your choices depending on which track their racing at and again I think you’ve chosen really well here…..hmm some guy named Hamlin is always great at Martinsville =)…..J.J. is too but not choosing them in the same week is good strategy too.


              • hydeo says:

                yah i go search in the weekend
                why u think i chose well ??


                • Oh did you find a broadcast to watch for this past weekend?

                  It’s in hindsight now but your choices of Hamlin and Gordon I thought were perfect~* for this short track as they both have a history of doing so well there =). And saving Jimmie Johnson and not choosing him and Hamlin in the same race was good too as I think you’d like to save him for the upcoming race @ Phoenix.

    Martinsville Entries…

    Denny Hamlin
    Jeff Gordon
    Clint Bowyer
    Ryan Newman

    By the way, I thank heaven we cancelled last week’s entries. Kahne and Newman ran in the toilet for me!



    • Hello~*, I’m thinking that you won’t even know that I’ve responded as without Vox we don’t receive notifications =(, but for what it’s worth I sooo soooo know what you mean!!!…and now with Kasey having more publicly stated issues with his team besides being sick to his stomach this past weekend and then his brake disaster issues >_<;…..so so bad. A~h Hamlin or the other short track specialist~*….well so great to keep them apart this week but then there is the wild~card Talladega (/∇\*)!、。。

      Hmm….I'm beginning to worry about the other entries but I know I've given ample time this time and I did say that there would be upcoming posts which would decide the winner so I'm a bit confused but more so saddened =(.


      • CK says:

        Actually, when I comment I can choose to have follow-ups emailed to me. So it IS possible (hehe). By the way, a bit off-topic but the first time I went to Hawaii the local ABC affiliate had these twin brothers as evening News Anchors. They looked like surfers, and I remember they wore the ABC blazers with board shorts. Do you have any idea who the hell I am talking about?

        That just popped into my head, so I wanted to ask you about it. 🙂


        • Mmm..I was wondering if there was a way to have notifications that way =). Hmm…..I don’t know them and that’s really embarrassing as I love board shorts on a guy and yet I have no idea (´⌒`。) !We do have our share of hot* newscasters now though….and I’m sure they know it too =).


  5. Muse says:
