Last Driver Standing


Congratulations to our 2013 Last Driver Standing Champion, Meesh Beer, who won after David Bolton's driver for Race 1 at Detroit finished outside the Top 10! What a fight by David and Meesh, but in the end there could be only one winner! Thanks to all who participated, and we'll do it again next year!

This season, IndyCar Advocate will again be hosting an inter-blog contest called Last Driver Standing. Basically, it’s pits IndyCar bloggers against one another, in a no-holds-barred quest for glory.

How does one win? Simple. Each race week, each participating blogger selects one driver they predict will finish in the Top 10 of that race. If their driver misses out on the Top 10, for whatever reason, they are eliminated from the contest. The blogger who has the longest uninterrupted streak of Top 10 finishers is the winner! And yes, they can only use each driver in the field once—and if they don’t submit a pick before the deadline (usually the Thursday/Friday before a race), they're out of the running.

Week 6 Results:

David Bolton, Open-Wheels: James Hinchcliffe/Justin Wilson

Meesh Beer, "So, Here's What I'm Thinking...": Dario Franchitti/Alex Tagliani


Note: Meesh and David AGAIN made the same pick, which means however the race shakes out, we'll have to go to Detroit to see if someone stumbles!
