A true series NASCAR, PGA, PSP is a collection of tournaments to which the winners of each of these events earn points based on their placement for that particular day. The finality of each day’s winner always leaves hope for the next event and leaves everyone in the hunt for the season and each event prizes.
Per Event CASH Prizes:
Opt In for Prizes: $300 per team (Optional)
The initial basic Franchise Fee is designed to allow teams to play the format they choose at the most minimal of cost while allowing them the ability to ante up to play for the Cash each Event. Teams that ante up are essentially betting on their chances of finishing in the top 2 for that event. Knowing your schedule for each event in advance allows teams the choice of playing for a prize or playing for fun that day. The $300 opt in would be collected from each team that chooses to participate the morning of the each event.
Example 1: If 8 teams were in D3 Division start of the season and all 8 wanted to ante for the first event then $2400 would be in the Cash Pool for that division for that particular day. Because all 8 teams put into the Cash prize pool (8 x $300) - payout would works as follows:
1st - $1600 2nd - $800
Example 2: Again 8 teams in division but only 6 teams want to ante up for that event (Team 7 & 8 decide to not play for cash prizes) The prize pool is then $1800. (6 x $300) Team 1 wins the Event, Team 7 comes in 2nd and Team 2 comes in third. Team 1 receives $1200 and Team 2 who technically came in 3rd wins $600 because Team 7 chose to play without the Ante for fun and season ending prizes forfeiting any cash to the next highest team to ante up.
Series Ending Prize:
ALL teams are in the running for the Series Ending Prize which will be determined with seed points awarded to each team at each event. Teams do NOT need to ever participate in the Cash Pool option in order to win the Series Prize.
