I haven't been able to find a decent explanation of the rules for Yahoo fantasy NASCAR racing? What's the purpose of the "bench"? Can someone point me to the rules page? Thanks!
BENCH Players meaningless TODAY ONLY.
Next week you pick 8 players BEFORE deadline (Thursdays or Friday night)
After that dealine your 8 players a locked and then you wait for qualifying...
AFTER qualifying up until race time you can pick the 4 active players for week.
Hope that explains it.

Each 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.
Bonus points are awarded to each of the drivers with the four best starting positions after qualifying. The pole winner (top qualifier) receives 10 bonus points, the second receives 5, the third receives 3, and the fourth receives 1. These points are awarded to any bench drivers as well as active drivers on your team for the current race.
Note: Because qualifying for the Daytona 500 is broken up over two days, qualifying bonus points are not awarded for the Daytona 500
At the bottom of your Team Page there are some pop ups. However, if you go to the right corner you will see a sprocket looking thing. Click on that, then click on Help. Type in Fantasy Nascar Rules. Tada! Anything you need to know is under that lil sprocket under HELP. Good Luck.
