2nd place - 9 points
3rd place - 8 points
4th place - 7 points
5th place - 6 points
6th place - 5 points
7th place - 4 points
8th place - 3 points
9th place - 2 points

RE: Memorial Day Triple Header
Ooh, this year's going to be tough. I really want to see Ham win again and start taking a commanding lead for his 6th title and I'd like to see any of the Penskes win the 500, but I honestly don't see either of those happening Sunday.

1. Monaco - I'm going to go with Bottas. Not sure if Ferrari will have the ability to match the Mercedes, and surprisingly Bottas has been stronger than Ham in qualifying this year. Monaco doesn't have many opportunities to pass, so I predict he'll get out front and stay out front.

2. Indy - I hate to do it but going with Ed Carpenter. Yeah, I know he's the local boy and hometown hero, but he's also the whiniest thing I've ever seen next to the new addition to the booth (thanks for nothing NBC). I'd really like to see Helio join the #4 club, but I like all of the other Penske drivers.

3. Nascar - I don't follow it, so I don't even know who races in the series. If Kyle Busch is in the series still I'll take him. Not that I like him, it's just the only name I know off the top of my head.

F-1 should be an easy pick as Mercedes has run the table so far this year. Head and shoulders over all the others. Bottas or Hamilton are very safe picks. Ferrari is too scared to let their two drivers battle it out as their #2 LeClerc has been faster than Vettel a number of times this year.
