Hey crew. I saw this mentioned on the roadside and thought it might be a good idea for us to take a look at since this is our 1st season of jumping to 3 man teams.  

One thing that the roadside of PRL has had more engagement than us on the oval side is the Team Championship. I know we don't have a lot of established racing teams in our league and that's totally fine, but I have noticed that it does seem to limit the amount of drivers forming teams that we have going for the Championship. So with this new teams of 3 rule, it got me thinking that maybe the new rule would discourage random pairings even more, and I personally dont want to see that and want to see more engagement from the league as a whole. 

So would I would like to pick your brains on is this proposal: while running teams of 3, only the highest 2 drivers per race would count towards the team championship. This would mean that if drivers are a team of 2, it doesn't mean they're automatically out of the championship and they can put up a fight, they just wouldn't have the 1 driver wiggle room that a team of 3 would have. What do you all think?

With a pretty favorable vote, we will try this system out for the first time this season. For any specific race, only the top 2 finishers out of a 3 driver team will count each week in the Team Championship. This will still allow for just 2 driver teams to be able to compete throughout the entire season.

Just to clarify, as this is the first time we will use this system and want to make sure it brings the most fair points standings to team with different sized rosters, I am planning on not factoring in any drop weeks that take place in the Drivers Standings. If I find that the math in it provides and unfair advantage one way or the other, than we can look at modifying this at a later date.
