HOW TO PLAY:
The main object is broken down as follows:
» Build a team of ANY FIVE DRIVERS that you think will PLACE in the Top Ten. To receive credit, all your driver must do is place in the Top Ten.
» Each driver that places in the Top Ten will earn you ONE credit (correct choice). This accounts for ANY of your drivers. The best case is to have all FIVE of your selected drivers finishing in the Top Ten.
» You will earn points on HOW YOUR DRIVERS FINISH. (Each finishing place from 1 to 10 will have a corresponding point value). These points are tabulated and participants having drivers that place in the Top Ten will be credited with those points as determined by the scoring structure. For example, if you have three drivers that finish 1, 3, and 8 then your score would be (110 + 60 + 10 = 180 points). See scoring below for the complete scoring structure.
» You will be required to stay within a $1 Million "Fantasy" Salary Cap. Keep in mind that using the "lowest salary cap" possible may earn you a higher ranking (see scoring below).
» To assure that there are individual winners in the weekly races, we have incorporated the following Tiebreaker system which will be used in the event of ties.
TIEBREAKERS (in this order)
1. Closest to the Actual number of "Lead Changes" during the Race.
2. Closest to the Actual number of "Cautions" during the Race.
3. Whoever picked first (or the actual time your final list of drivers was compiled).
» Each driver will have a unique salary value (code) which players will be required to stay within the above-mentioned "fantasy" salary cap. Each race you will be assigned a $1,000,000 budget to be used as your salary cap.
» Each race, you will go to the LOGIN area where you will use a drop-down menu which includes a list of all drivers including their associated salary cap value. The screen has a real-time calculator to show where you stand while building your 5 driver racing team.
» Each race is a new contest with new cash prizes. You have the option of getting in on the initial race (February 15th / DAYTONA 500) or in any race thereafter. Once registered, unlike other contests, the registration fee covers the race at the time of entry plus all subsequent races. The best part of our contest is that we THROW OUT your 8 "worst races"! You are never out of it...How many other contests offer such a deal? As more players come aboard the individual race prizes will increase.
» "THROW OUT" RULES: In an effort to keep players actively competing all season long, we have increased the number of races for our "throw out" rule. This rule now allows "8 throw-away races". What this means is we will discard your 8 worst races throughout the season. In other words, we take your best 28 race results out of the 36 races during the Winston Cup season. This will be updated automatically by our system. The "throw-away races" begin with the first race. If a player registers after the start of the season, any race that they missed will count against your throw-away races...
» We have also teamed up with Cheap Car Insurance to give the winners car insurance discounts if they qualify. We have listed their requirements for each state in the left sidebar.
