Thumbs up NASCAR Chase Survivor contest

Any interest in Chase competitors (16) Survivor pool. I don't mind running it and scoring. First race Sept.18. A little feedback on the following...

1) Buy in - how many RPts to play ?
2) Number of players/teams in contest 8 (w/2 drivers ea.) or 16 (1 driver per team)?
3) Selection of Drivers .... should be random, so I'm thinking either alphabetically per order of sign up/entry. Or, by entry ala "draft" type linear snake. (8 teams) First player (sign up) gets, #1 seed + 16th, 2nd player gets 2nd seed + 15th, etc. through 8th player receiving the 8th & 9th seeded drivers. With 16teams, we could go by order of sign ups but, there must be a minimum of spacing between your drivers... say 4 or 5 seed rankings.

If interested let's decide on rules/structure by Wed. Sept. 14 and entry fees paid by Fri. Sept.16. (I'll be travelling at the end of the week) : /

Open to any ideas so post your thinking here....
gl racefans :

PS. I think Dr. Jack or 1218 threw in some added incentives to last years end of season NASCAR contest! But, I could be wrong ...

Thanks Alv... we WILL have a Survivor contest. If less than 8 teams play, we will divide the drivers evenly among the number of teams that sign up,. We will use the linear snake selection process outlined above. 5K sounds a little steep but, I am game for whatever the consensus is. I would like to have all interested teams commit by Fri. Sept.16.

Would you like to be the first to officially sign up? If so, claim asap. Out of fairness, I will place myself somewhere between 4th and 8th to sign up (following rda's good example).

Post ALL comments or questions in this thread.
Come race time I will post a "clean" thread here to track Survivor progress ala Wayne's Big Brother contest.

Right now, most everyone seems good w/5k Rpts entry fee. T100 suggest 1500 - 2K (?) I can cover him up to 5k.

Also, on Payout.... Winner take all? Or, winner (85%) plus consolation prize to Runner Up (15%). Only Top 2 finishers or, should the first 4 teams eliminated in the Challenger Round, get 1500 pts ea., consolation prize?

Both.... DONE.
Looking like the 5K entry fee will stand but, let's give it a couple of more hours before finalized.

One more sign up and I'll get loseteeth in 8th spot.

If we should get much more interest... would you guys suggest starting a second game of 8 players or would you agree to increase this one to 16, by pairing down to a single driver, for each entry (same order by entry) thereby doubling the size of the pot?
