So, these are the results of the 2012 IndyCar Series:

o- Winner: Hunter-Reay (2 to 1)
o- Top 3: Hunter-Reay (2 to 1), Power (3 to 1), Dixon (6 to 1)
o- Top 5: Hunter-Reay (2 to 1), Power (3 to 1), Dixon (6 to 1), Castroneves (3 to 1), Pagenaud (10 to 1)
o- Top 10: Hunter-Reay (2 to 1), Power (3 to 1), Dixon (6 to 1), Castroneves (3 to 1), Pagenaud (10 to 1), Briscoe (20 to 1), Franchitti (10 to 1), Hinchcliffe (10 to 1), Kanaan (10 to 1), Rahal (20 to 1)
o- Top 15: Hunter-Reay (2 to 1), Power (3 to 1), Dixon (6 to 1), Castroneves (3 to 1), Pagenaud (10 to 1), Briscoe (20 to 1), Franchitti (10 to 1), Hinchcliffe (10 to 1), Kanaan (10 to 1), Rahal (20 to 1), Hildebrand (40 to 1), Barrichello (40 to 1), Serviŗ (20 to 1), Sato (40 to 1), Wilson (20 to 1)

Daisy and Marcostraz chose Hunter-Reay for the championship and earned $ 6,000. WAT got $ 1,600 for picking him for the top 3; Daisy, NaBUru3$8 and Marcostraz got $ 2,400 for picking Power, and Mythoughts got $ 4,800 for picking Dixon.

Marcostraz and Mythoughts earned $ 600 for choosing Castroneves for the top 5, whereas WAT and NaBUru38 got $ 1,200 for choosing Dixon. Marcostraz cashed $ 1,000 for picking Franchitti for the top 10, WAT and Mythoughts got $ 2,000 for picking Briscoe, and Daisy also got $ 2,000 for picking Rahal. Marcostraz earned $ 1,000 for picking Wilson for the top 15, whereas WAT, Daisy and Mythoughts got $ 2,000 for picking Sato.

These are the results of the 2012 Bet 'Em IndyContest championship fight special stage:

1st - Daisy: 6,000 + 2,400 + 0 + 2,000 + 2,000 = 12,400
2nd - Marcostraz: 6,000 + 2,400 + 600 + 1,000 + 2,000 = 12,000
3rd - Mythoughts: 0 + 4,800 + 600 + 2,000 + 1,000 = 8,400
4th - WAT: 0 + 1,600 + 1,200 + 2,000 + 2,000 = 6,800
5th - NaBUru38: 0 + 2,400 + 1,200 + 0 + 0 = 3,600

Marcostraz nearly beat Daisy. WAT lagged a bit in 4th, although still cashing well above the $ 4,150 we betted - I didn't.

These are the final results of the 2012 Bet 'Em IndyContest:

1st - Daisy: $ 77,800
2nd - WAT: $ 72,850
3rd - Mythoughts: $ 58,390
4th - NaBUru38: $ 43,850
5th - Marcostraz: $ 37,170
6th - Eizox: $ 11,800
7th - Chiana: $ 6,000
8th - Beetle: $ 5,800
9th - Flyin Ryan: $ 2,900
10th - HaydenFan: $ 2,500
11th - Barnett: $ 2,400
12th - Gameofguts21: $ 500

Congratulations to all betters, and especially Daisy, the first winner of a Ten-Tenths Bet 'Em contest.

If good winds blow, I'll check if the earnings additions are correct and will add some statistics, like which driver was the best choice for each bet. You can tell me which data you would like to know, and I'll try to calculate it.

If you want revenge, you can join the Bet 'Em CupContest right now in the Nascar subforum. Have fun!

Grats Daisy.

I really regret not picking Legge for the top 10 of the Fontana race. I was going to do it, but in last minute I decided to be more conservative and pick Jakes. She was worth $6.000, would've won the whole thing if I picked her...

Whoho , that was a close call and a lucky guess with RHR for the championship. But my biggest earn came in round one with a last minute pick for Castroneves as the winner, without that one, I never would have won.

WAT, well played and NaBUru38, thanks for the organisation, I'll be back for next season, great game!

Looks like we were both very inspired that race. I had picked Helio for the win too. And also Viso for the top 10, which was quite a gutsy call considering of how much he struggled to finish races last year.

Thanks to NaBuRu for the game. Love the concept, the stake system is a good incentive for gambling with dark horses instead of just picking the favorites all the time, and this makes the whole thing very interesting.

Thank you, folks! I'm studying to become a video game programmer, but I love designing games too. This format seems to have worked, as WAT says. Thank you folks for playing!

I'll see if I add one or two more bets next year. How about this?

o- Winning brand (all races)
o- Most laps led (ovals)
o- Best mover (road/street)
