Nascar Fantasy Racing League - ChrisD - 02-06-2013 12:55 PM
I know there are a few NASCAR fans on these forums so I just thought I would share this with you guys. I'm going to run a Fantasy Live league for the 2013 season. We only have 4 members right now (I think I have a few other friends on facebook that are going to sign up but haven't yet) and we would like to get to at least 16 so we become eligible for free Nascar.com prizes.
League name: No Luck Fantasy Racing League
***Because of the way they configured the new Nascar.com website, you have to register a new account (With a new email) to join up right now. Not sure if they are going to fix it before the beginning of the season, so it's probably better just to re-register. They may have fixed the issue, not sure because I haven't needed to log in yet - my stuff is all saved.
If we can get AT LEAST 16 Members, we will become eligible for prizes (Free) to the winners/runner ups of the league. If you have people to invite, feel free! Should be fun.
Also it is fair to note to you guys on here - if this seasons league goes relatively well and we all enjoy it to some extent, I have all intentions on doing it again for 2014 and doing perhaps a $50 to $60 dollar entry fee league with pay outs via nascar.com.

Cool. I have never done a NASCAR fantasy league before. I don't know anything how how it works.
I do I go about signing up. I was able to sign into my old NASCAR.com account but I click on Fantasy Live and how do I find your league?
EDIT: Ok I'm in now. How does this work?

In this version of the fantasy game you pick five drivers a week got each track. You can set them up to like a few minutes before the race I think.
This is the first time I've played a non draft league for Nascar where you pick guys every week., scoring seems awesome and is on the site.
If you know anyone, invite them!

Ugh, it's going to be a long offseason.

Why? Because there are people who watch sports other than Falcons Football? My apologies.

I wasn't aware that Nascar was a sport.

Oh, one of those people. Right.
Sport - An activity involving physical exertion and skill in which an individual or team competes against another or others.
Seeing how drivers are usually more exerted than a football player would be after playing back to back football games, I'd say it qualifies as a sport. I love your type. "Oh, driving a car isn't a sport, hurrrdurr". Yeah, that's just the regular old lip-head reply.

Dude, chill out. I'm aware that it's difficult to interpret tone over the written word, but that was a joke. I don't care either way, man. To each their own.

Cnasty, while I, too, begrudge no one what they find entertaining, be it Nascar or Soccer, I agree it's going to be a long offseason.
