Remember, during the regular season, our writers are trying to collect as many wins as possible.
After Richmond, points will be reset with each writer receiving 10 points for correctly picking a winner during the season.
For the final 10 races, the points will matter, and a Creature vs. Creature Champion will be crowned following the season finale in Homestead.
SIDE NOTE: When the Chase starts, our writer's will really have to put on their creative hats, as they will only be able to select a driver one time during the final 10 races.
In other words, each writer will have to be careful with the likes of Johnson, Gordon, Stewart and Busch, because they only get to use each once.
