Hey guys, It's time for the new season of fantasy racing. Last years league went well, with positions only being finalized on the last race of the year. Hope for another good season. Hope staff leaves this one up for at least long enough to get everyone joined up who want to - and the ones from last year.
One change to this year - Every week counts. Last year each segment would drop your lowest score. This year it sets up to count each week. Everything else seems exactly the same as always.

Don't know about joining yall this year, but I am excited for the season to start. We trading the day race at Bristol this year and gonna do the night race. Looking forward to it.
No problem. Should be a good year this year with some of the drivers changing teams and the new car. I'm ready to see how it goes. I hope to make a race at Bristol one of these days. The Night race has to be cool.

Last chances to join if anyone else wishes to play.
I'm in! Thank you!
Now that's a entrance....
I watch racing all of the time but I got to read the rules. So, each driver can only have 9 starts before they stop getting your team fantasy points?
You can use each driver 9 times. It's not as hard as that seems just thinking about it. You will find you will switch drivers weekly - except in the B area where many times there will be only 5, 6, 7 guys truly doing well. What you do is pick 2 A list drivers - 4 B List Drivers - and 2 C list Drivers before each race. Look weekly because the deadline to pick drivers each week changes depending on when qualifying is each week. For the first race - we don't have qualifying points so we don't pick our drivers, or we don't have to have our drivers chosen until the day of the race. That's not normal unless qualifying gets canceled for whatever reasons during the weeks.
So, you have a total of 8 drivers which can earn points by qualifying in spots 1-3 10 for the poll, 5 for 2cd, 1 point for 3rd starting position. Then, after qualifying, you can swap your drivers around before the actual race starts to get the best 4. You will start each week only 1 A driver, 2 B drivers, and 1 C driver - these are the ones who will count towards your 9 total. The other drivers only earn qualifying points and are bench drivers once the race starts. You only earn points each week once the race starts - from the 4 drivers you chose to start.
LOL ok simply....you pick all 8 drivers each week before qualifying for that...once qualifying is done you can swap your drivers around (only the 8 of course) to get your best 4 for the actual race itself.
All points earned each week count towards your total - qualifying points and driver points from the race.
Its addicting and will change how you watch a race. Seriously. You will find yourself rooting for your 4 drivers in the race, getting mad if a racer is messing up one of your guys, and many other things. It totally changes how races play out for me now (g)

Ah, ok. Gotcha Should be fun.
Way to go Harvick!! 29 is my car
Nice way to start the year for him. This BUD's for you (g)
We start scoring next Sunday in our Fantasy league. Drivers must be picked by at 12:25c as of right now on 2/24. We might want to make sure we have our starters chosen at least early on Sunday in case that deadline moves up at all. Probably won;t, but can't be too careful to start.
Well, I've been away from BOL for a few and looks like I'm gonna start the NASCAR fantasy league in the hole
EDIT: Oh wow, not dropping the lowest week score is really gonna burn me this year since I missed the opening weekend. Welp, gonna try it anyway
