Scuba's NASCAR Pick 3: Week 17 Results

Monday, Jun, 30 2014

Our NASCAR Pick 3 is off and rolling for 2014!  Scuba’s Bar and Grill in Appleton is on board this season challenging you to beat the experts!

Every Thursday, on the Home Stretch, Alex Hayden of MRN Radio & Ben Brust of the Badgers join Justin Hull to talk NASCAR.  At the end the conversation, one listener will be chosen to call in and pick 3 drivers for the Sprint Cup Race that weekend.  After that, our expert panel of Alex, Ben, Justin and Justin’s Dad will pick their 3 for the race.

It’s golf style scoring so the lower the scorer, the better.  You get points for whatever position each of your drivers finish.  If you pick the winning driver, we subtract 5-points from your total.  If the listener beats 3 of 4 or sweeps the panel, it’s a $25 Gift Card to Scuba’s.  If you beat just one, it’s a $10 Gift Card to Scuba’s.

Here are the week 17 results:

1st place: Alex

Wednesday, Jun, 11 2014

The 2014 US Open is coming up this weekend.  So why not make some picks?  That's exactly the case here.  I brought together four great media minds (and J.P) to make some picks to compete for bragging rights!

The draft order was drawn by Cadorin.  It will be a snake style with each expert picking a total of four.  The total prize money will be added up to determine the winner so grabbing players that make the cut will be key!

The Order:

2.) Justin Hull - that's me!
3.) J.P Cadorin - Time Warner Cable Sports Channel

2.) Hull - Jordan Spieth
3.) Cadorin (who also tried to pick Adam Scott) - Bubba Watson
4.) Woods - Matt Kuchar
5.) Koob - Rory McIlory
6.) Felder - Phil Mickelson

ROUND 2
1.) Felder - Jason Day
2.) Koob - Jim Furyk
3.) Woods - Keegan Bradley
4.) Cadorin - Dustin Johnson
5.) Hull - Henrik Stenson
6.) Worgull -  Charl Schwartzel

ROUND 3
1.) Worgull - Jason Dufner
2.) Hull - Jimmy Walker (pick made 2nd last because everyone skipped me)
3.) Cadorin - Martin Kaymer
4.) Woods - John Senden
5.) Koob - Hideki Matsuyama
6.) Felder -  Justin Rose

ROUND 4
1.) Felder - Billy Horschel
2.) Koob - Steve Stricker
3.) Woods - Bill Haas
