    The league is also publicly listed at Fantrax. Just go to the Fantrax website, hover over “join a league” (on the menu on the right side), click on “listed commissioner league,” click on the “NASCAR” menu tab along the top, find our league by name (Black and Red #3), and click on the “Join” button at the right.

    Scoring setup: basically the scoring setup gives about 46% of the points based on finishing position, about 24% to laps lead, 18% to qualifying, and about 10% is taken away from teams whose drivers DNF and/or don’t qualify.

    The scoring is category based, so your "points" are actually "wins" that count towards the standings. If you win 65-35, you get 65 wins and 35 losses in the standings—NOT the usual one win in the standings. This rewards you for dominating victories and gives a true representation of your team's quality.

  • This is the RARE H2H category based league. This rewards you for dominating your opponents. Each category win counts in the season stats as an individual win, so it's much fairer than the usual winner-takes-all points or most-categories-is-a-win leagues. Modified-snake draft makes draft much fairer for teams picking #4-#10. Scoring breakdown is about 46% for results, 24% for laps lead, 18% for qualifying, and 10% lost for DNF and DNQ. You get 4 drivers, and all four start every week.

    Basics: this is a free, H2H redraft league (no keepers, no dynasty) that’s going to have about 10 teams. Every team plays two matchups a week, every week of the season with the top 4 playing for the championship at the end of the season. Our live draft is Saturday, Feb. 20 at 10:00 AM EDT. Be sure to read below for all the details about our rules, the setup, scoring, playoffs, draft, rules, etc. Each team will draft four drivers, and there will be NO duplicate drivers. (If the league grows quickly, I might add other divisions that do have duplicate drivers, but they wouldn’t play teams with the same drivers until the playoffs.)

    One key point is that we DON’T use the usual fantasy snaking draft. Our draft snakes for the first two rounds and then locks for rounds 2-10. In other words, the 2nd round will be the opposite of the first, but then the draft order is going to be the same as the 2nd round until the end. Based on a 10-team league, this means that the team that picks 1st overall is going to pick 20th, 30th, and 40th, and the team picking 10th is going to pick 11th, 21st, and 31st. (This balances the league.)

    Scoring setup: basically the scoring setup gives about 46% of the points based on finishing position, about 24% to laps lead, 18% to qualifying, and about 10% is taken away from teams whose drivers DNF and/or don’t qualify.

    Did Not Qualify (DNQ) 4.1
    Place (Plc) 4.
