Legends of Nascar Money League w/ Chase Elimination Playoffs!!!

Recommended Posts

Hey guys, I will be looking for people that would like to participate in a Fantasy Nascar league with entry fee of $40 paid through leaguesafe.com which is held on Nascar.com through the Fantasy Live game. Please read the details below. If you are interested in joining or have any further questions please email me at mjbnmr59755@gmail.com. This is a fun and exciting league to play in and I hope to hear from you! Thanks! 

 

 

Basics

 

Nascar Fantasy Live held on Nascar.com
30 Teams
26 Regular Season Weeks (Week 1 – Week 26)
10 Chase Weeks (Week 27 – Week 36), 12 Teams Make The Chase

4 Elimination Rounds (Just like the real Nascar Chase)

 

Brief League Info:

 

This league is designed to pretty much mirror the way the real Nascar goes. 30 teams participate for 26 regular season races. During this period if you win 2 races then you clinch a spot in the Chase. 12 teams make the Chase so if there are not 12 teams that win 2 races each during the regular season then the remaining spots in the Chase will be determined by total points. The Chase is a 10-race period with 4 elimination rounds. Each round of the Chase lasts 3 races except for the last round, which is the final race of the season (Homestead). Each round the bottom 3 teams get eliminated from the Chase. During the Chase if you win a race then you advance into the next round of the Chase. When you get down to the last race of the season (Homestead) there will be 3 teams fighting for the championship. The team, out of the 3 teams remaining, that finishes higher in the last and final race of the season will win the championship.

 

This is a very fun league going into its second year and I really love the concept! Just so everyone is aware, the league is held on Nascar.com through the Nascar Fantasy Live game. I do not have access to change or edit anything regarding scoring rules, or switching Nascar drivers for anyone during the season. There are very limited things I can do as a commish. I basically have control over the league fees, payouts, and I manually keep tract of the Chase Elimination Tournament Grid.

 

A little bit of background regarding me as a commissioner. I have been commishing fantasy leagues for the past 6 years now so I am very experienced. The main sports I run leagues with are football, baseball, & nascar. I use leaguesafe.com for all of my money leagues to collect fees and distribute winnings. League safe is easy to use and secure. When it comes to payouts at the end of the season, the majority of the league owners must approve the league payouts in league safe in order for the league to get paid out. It is secure this way and I have never had payouts not get approved.

 

Below is straight from the Nascar Fantasy Live game’s rules page.

 

How To Play

 

Game Play:

 

Manage one team of five (5) NASCAR Sprint Cup Series drivers against a $100 dollar salary cap while picking drivers with the best chance at scoring the most points each week. Players can add or remove drivers at their discretion as long as each team stays under the $100 cap for each Race (selections are locked during the Race window). Each Team Roster must have five different drivers on it. A player will earn points each week as described below based on the performance of the drivers on the player’s team for that week. Players can also earn bonus points each week by successfully predicting the winning driver and/or winning car manufacturer for a particular Race.

 

Driver Valuation:

 

A driver’s value will rise and fall throughout the Season based on performance but once a driver is on a team, their value stays locked in at the time of purchase until they are dropped from the roster or a salary is renegotiated as described below. Each driver’s value will be posted on the Website by 5:00 p.m. ET on each Tuesday of each Weekly Period.

 

Setting Your Team:

 

Participants will select five (5) drivers to make up a team of their predicted top-scoring drivers in that week’s Race. Participants will have until five (5) minutes before each Race’s official start time to select their Team. Official start time will be posted on the Game website and homepage for each League. In the event of any delay to the start of a Race, the roster lock time may be extended. Once a participant has selected his/her Team Roster, such Team Roster will carry over week-to-week unless the participant elects to change his/her Team Roster. Participants can make changes to their Team Rosters each Race week, but participants are not required to make changes. If a driver does not compete in a Race, he/she will not earn points for that Race week, but remains on participants’ Rosters until dropped. Regardless of what car they are in, the only Drivers who will receive points are those that actively start a Race. Inactive drivers on a team will not incur any additional penalty.

 

Bonus Points:

 

For bonus points, participants will need to select their Winning Driver and Car Manufacturer predictions each week. Failure to do so will not result in a penalty, but no additional bonus points will be earned. Pick for Winning Driver is not required to be on the active five-person roster. PICKS FOR WINNING DRIVER AND CAR MANUFACTURER DO NOT CARRY OVER WEEK TO WEEK.

Salary Renegotiation:

 

Should a driver’s value fall below the price originally purchased, a participant has the ability to Renegotiate Salary via the $$$ symbol located on the roster page. Renegotiating frees up cap space by applying the current value to any driver who has a lower value than when purchased. A participant may renegotiate salary at any time.

 

 

Scoring Format:

 

The drivers participating in each of the 36 Races of the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series schedule will be scored each week according to the categories below. Participants earn points each week for each of their teams based on the performance of the drivers on their team for that week. The total race points accumulated by each driver on a participant’s team, plus any Bonus Points earned, represent the participant’s Weekly Race Points for each team/entry. Weekly Race Points are used to rank participants within Leagues and Overall each week. Weekly Race Points are totaled for each team Race by Race to determine the Overall League Rankings. Weekly Race Points and respective Rankings will be considered Final and will be posted to the site within 24 hours of the time when Race Results from NASCAR become official. Any penalties or adjustments to NASCAR official scoring after Game scoring has been finalized will not be reflected.

 

Scoring Categories:

 

Drivers are scored across four (4) statistical categories, originating from NASCAR’s official Race scoring. If a Driver on a participant’s Team Roster does not compete in a Race, that Driver will be awarded zero (0) points for that Race.

 

Laps Led: 
Total number of laps led divided by 2. Example: If Carl Edwards lead 70 laps, he would earn 35 points. NASCAR Timing & Scoring will be the official source of this statistical category.

 

Fastest Laps: 
Total number of fastest laps divided by 2. Example: If Denny Hamlin recorded 50 fastest laps, he would earn 25 points. NASCAR Timing & Scoring will be the official source of this statistical category.

 

Place Differential: 
Starting position (based on official qualifying order) minus finish position, +/- 1 point for each driver’s place differential. Example: If Jimmie Johnson started 7th but finished 1st, his place differential would be +6, and he would earn 6 points. If Jeff Gordon started 6th and finished 10th, his place differential would be -4, earning him -4 points.

 

Finishing Position: 
1st place gets 46 points, 2nd place gets 42, 3rd place gets 41, 4th place gets 40 points and so on in decrements of one point per position, with 43rd place earning 1 point. The Game will be scored based on the final Race results tabulated by NASCAR Timing and Scoring

 

Bonus Points - Winning Driver: 
30-point bonus for picking the winning race driver for that week. Selection DOES NOT carry over from week to week; a new pick must be made each Race.

 

Bonus Points - Car Manufacturer: 
10-point bonus for picking the winning car manufacturer for that week. Selection DOES NOT carry over from week to week; a new pick must be made each Race.

 

 

Chase Elimination Tournament:

 

The Chase Elimination Tournament is run pretty much the same as the real Chase but there are just some minor adjustments. There are 26 regular season races before the Chase starts and there are only two ways that you can enter the Chase. If you win 2 races during the 26 race regular season then you will clinch a spot in the Chase. The other way to get into the Chase is by points if there is still a spot left open. The following applies to the Chase Elimination Tournament.

 

12 Chase Teams enter the Chase Elimination Tournament

 

Note: For Round 1 of the Chase, each team that won a race during the 26 race regular season will get 5 extra points per race won. So if a team won 6 races during the regular season then he will enter round 1 of the Chase with 30 points. If you did not win a race during the regular season then you will start with zero points in round 1 of the Chase. This same rule applies to rounds 2 & 3 of the Chase meaning that if a team won a race in the previous round then that team will receive 5 extra points per race won. In round 4 all three teams left in the Chase will be even in points and will come down to the last race.

 

Round 1           This round lasts for 3 races and the top 9 teams after these 3 races conclude advance to round 2. During this round if you win a race then you advance to the next round. The remaining teams that did not win a race during this round will be seeded by points and the last 3 teams with the least amount of points in this round will be eliminated from the Chase.

 

Round 2           This round lasts for 3 races and the top 6 teams after these 3 races conclude advance to round 3. During this round if you win a race then you advance to the next round. The remaining teams that did not win a race during this round will be seeded by points and the last 3 teams with the least amount of points in this round will be eliminated from the Chase.

 

Round 3           This round lasts for 3 races and the top 3 teams after these 3 races conclude advance to round 4 and the Championship Round. During this round if you win a race then you advance to the Championship Round. The remaining teams that did not win a race during this round will be seeded by points and the last 3 teams with the least amount of points in this round will be eliminated from the Chase.

 

Round 4           This is the Championship Round. This round lasts only 1 race. This round is pretty simple, the team that finishes higher out of the 3 remaining teams left in the Chase will win the league. 2nd place is the next highest team that finishes second out of the three remaining Chase teams. 3rd place is the team that finishes last out of the three remaining Chase teams.  

 

Tiebreakers:     Regular Season:

 

If two or more teams are tied to get into the Chase Elimination Tournament then the team with the best finishes during the regular season will advance into the Chase. For example 3 teams are tied for one spot in the Chase and neither team won a race during the season. Team 1 had one second place finish, Team 2 had two second place finishes, and Team 3 had two second place finishes. Team 1 would be eliminated and then we would look at 3rd place finishes between Team 2 and Team 3. Team 2 had three 3rd place finishes and Team 3 had four 3rd place finishes. Team 3 would advance into the Chase.

 

                        Chase:

                                   

                        Rounds 1 – 3 – If there are two or more teams tied for the final spot(s) in advancing into the next round in the chase or tied for a payout spot when they just got eliminated from the chase it will work as follows. When I say tied in this spot it means that the teams have the same amount of wins and/or the same amount of points. If this occurs then the tiebreaker will be the team that has the best average finish in the previous rounds in the chase. To calculate best average finish you add up all of the places you finished in each race in the chase then take that number you get and divide it by the number of races that were in your calculation. If still tied, then it goes to the team that won the most races during the regular season. If still tied after that then it will be the team that scored the most amount of points in the regular season. If still tied after all options are exhausted then the spots tied for will be added up and divided evenly amongst the teams tied. If the tie is for a spot to advance in the next round in the chase then all teams that remained tied after the tiebreakers are exhausted will advance into the next round of the chase.

 

Final Round (Round 4) – For the final round of the Chase (Round 4), if there are two or more teams tied for either 1st place or 2nd place then the team that had the most wins in the Chase in rounds 1-3 wins the tiebreaker. If still tied then the team that has the best average finish in the Chase in rounds 1-3 wins the tiebreaker. To calculate best average finish you add up all of the places you finished in each race in the chase then take that number you get and divide it by the number of races in the chase, which would be 9 because you don’t include the last race of the season because you are tied to begin with so it won’t make a difference. The team that comes out with the lowest number for best average finish wins the tiebreaker. If still tied, then it goes to the team that won the most races in the regular season. If still tied after that then it will be team that scored the most amount of points in the regular season.

 

 

                       

 

 

Chase:

                                   

                        Rounds 1 – 3 – If there are two or more teams tied for the final spot(s) in advancing into the next round in the chase or tied for a payout spot when they just got eliminated from the chase it will work as follows. When I say tied in this spot it means that the teams have the same amount of wins and/or the same amount of points. If this occurs then the tiebreaker will be the team that has the best average finish in the previous rounds in the chase. To calculate best average finish you add up all of the places you finished in each race in the chase then take that number you get and divide it by the number of races that were in your calculation. If still tied, then it goes to the team that won the most races during the regular season. If still tied after that then it will be the team that scored the most amount of points in the regular season. If still tied after all options are exhausted then the spots tied for will be added up and divided evenly amongst the teams tied. If the tie is for a spot to advance in the next round in the chase then all teams that remained tied after the tiebreakers are exhausted will advance into the next round of the chase.

 

Final Round (Round 4) – For the final round of the Chase (Round 4), if there are two or more teams tied for either 1st place or 2nd place then the team that has the best average finish in the Chase in rounds 1-3 wins the tiebreaker. To calculate best average finish you add up all of the places you finished in each race in the chase then take that number you get and divide it by the number of races in the chase, which would be 9 because you don’t include the last race of the season because you are tied to begin with so it won’t make a difference. The team that comes out with the lowest number for best average finish wins the tiebreaker. If still tied then the team that had the most wins in the Chase in rounds 1-3 wins the tiebreaker. If still tied, then it goes to the team that won the most races in the regular season. If still tied after that then it will be the team that scored the most amount of points in the regular season.
