Hello and welcome to Dubs stalling because he wanted to get to certain challenges. Let's do this.
2/18/2013 10:57 AM
Final Three Challenge: Gears and Gowns

PART ONE: Daytona 500

Rank 10 racers from No. 1 to No. 10 that are in the field for the Daytona 500.

You will receive 10 times the points for the finish of the racer you but at No.1, nine times for 2, 8 for 3, etc., etc. 

So, if you choose Danica Patrick No. 1 and she finishes 12th, that's 120.

Lowest score wins.

Tiebreaker, we go line by line. Lowest score on line 1, line 2, line 3, etc.

Tiebreaker #2 First to get it to me.

If you win, you make the Final, and part two of this challenge for you will be ignored. There will be no advantage in the final.

Advantage on this challenge for arfy/knee, In the 5/6/7 slots of this challenge, your picks will be reordered to make sure you get the lowest possible totals out of those three picks.

I tell ya, what a great NASCAR mind!

With the Ang Lee win, it is tied. 

April and Rebel win the tiebreaker.

So, if Argo wins Best Picture then Ghutton and Horvie move on. If anything else wins, April and Rebel move on.
2/24/2013 11:57 PM
So with that, Ghutton and Horvie escape.
