Scuba's NASCAR Pick 3: Week 1 Results

Monday, Feb, 24 2014

Another NASCAR Season is here which means the Pick 3 is back for 2014!  Scuba’s Bar and Grill in Appleton is on board this season challenging you to beat the experts!

Every Friday, on the Home Stretch, Alex Hayden of MRN Radio joins 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, 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 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 1 results:

1st place: My Dad
Matt Kenseth: 6
Kyle Busch: 19
Dale Jr: -5 (winner)
