While I know there are only a few of us, with the Daytona 500 coming up this weekend, I figured now would be a good time to ask whether the stock car racing fans here would like to join an EDSBS Fantasy Nascar group on Yahoo Sports. It's set up where you have 1 A-list driver, 2 B-list drivers, and 1 C-list driver, with a bench of the same. If you're interested, post in the comments with preferred e-mail and I'll send you an invite, or just join up at http://racing.fantasysports.yahoo.com/. Group name is EveryDayShouldBeSaturday, group ID# is 15494, and password is circlevroom.
Scoring DetailsEach driver can receive a maximum of 90 fantasy points during each race. The top 45 finishers receive points, with the winning driver getting the maximum 90 and other drivers receiving two fewer points for every spot they finish behind the leader - i.e. the second-place driver 88 points, the third-place driver gets 86. You receive the total points earned by all active drivers on your team provided that they have not already been active in nine races ( see the Maximum Starts section for more information). Bonus points are awarded to each of the drivers with the four best starting positions after qualifying. The top qualifier receives 10 bonus points, the second receives five, the third receives three and the fourth receives one. Because qualifying for Daytona 500 is broken up over two days, these bonus points will NOT be awarded for the Daytona 500. An additional 10 bonus points are awarded to each driver who leads at least one lap during a race. The driver leading the most laps during a race will also earn another 10 bonus points. To earn these bonus points for your fantasy team, a driver must be on your team and active during the race. If a race is officially cancelled, no fantasy team will receive any points for that race. All other scoring rules stay the same. If qualifying or a race is delayed or postponed, no points will be awarded until it is completed.
