TCM Most Popular Driver Voting Format:

Round One – All of the 112 nominated drivers are placed on the same ballot. After Round One of voting, the field will be trimmed to the top 25 drivers for the second round of voting. Voting closes for Round One on Wednesday, November 10th at Noon Atlantic.

BACK FOR 2021 – for the first round only, because there are so many drivers on the ballot, you can select up to three drivers in the first round. You can select one if you wish but the option is open to select up to three from the list. This choice will be in play for the first round only. Team up with other drivers on your campaigns, get your fans and theirs to help out to get to the second round!

The Round Two Ballot for the TCM Best of 2021 Awards runs from Thursday, November 11th to Wednesday, November 24th at Noon Atlantic.

Kings County Performance Best Looking Car Award

The nominees for this years award were placed into a Facebook photo album on our Facebook page. A panel of 14 from outside the region whom are seeing the cars for the first time, had the chance to pick their favorite five cars, in no particular order. Each car they selected received one panel vote. The five cars that received the most panel votes are placed into the Fan Vote portion of the award.

As in previous years, the fan vote is worth 50% of scoring for this award. The panel’s final overall tally will count for the other half. The car which scores the most points over the two halves will win the award.

Ties are broken by the car who finished higher in the panel vote.

SCORING EXPLANATION – Breakout Performer of the Year/Kings County Performance Rookie of the Year Award

Our panel was presented with a list of potential finalists for both the Breakout Performer and Kings County Performance Rookie of the Year Awards. Our six panelists will rank the finalists on their ballot. Their top picks of the finalists each received five points, second pick received four points, third received three, fourth got two points and their last pick got one point.

The fan vote winner will be awarded ten points, second on the fan vote will receive eight points, third will get six and so on with sixth place on back receiving zero from the fan vote. The fan vote essentially carries 25% weight on the overall ballot.

A perfect score is 40 points (five from each panelist plus ten from the fans).

Ties are broken by the amount of ballots a driver appears on, followed by the amount of top votes they received. Should drivers still be tied following that, the combined panel score will determine a winner.
