4 Elimination Rounds (Just like the real Nascar Playoffs)

 

Entry Fee: $40 / Paid through Leaguesafe.com

 

 

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 playoffs. 12 teams make the playoffs so if there are not 12 teams that win 2 races each during the regular season then the remaining spots in the playoffs will be determined by total points. The playoffs are a 10-race period with 4 elimination rounds. Each round of the playoffs 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 playoffs. During the playoffs if you win a race then you advance into the next round of the playoffs. 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 third 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 Playoff Elimination Tournament Grid.

 

A little bit of background regarding me as a commissioner. I have been commishing fantasy leagues for the past 8 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.

 

HOW TO PLAY

 

NASCAR® Fantasy Live 2017 Game

 

A.   Creating an Entry:

 

Participants must log on and register with NASCAR.COM, then access the Fantasy Games homepage for NASCAR® Fantasy Live located at http://fantasygames.nascar.com/live . To participate, create an entry by clicking PLAY NOW and then following the steps to create a single entry. A single email account registration can have up to five (5) entries.

 

B.    Joining a League:

 

Once an entry has been created, you may choose to join or create a League. Leagues can be established by anyone at any time throughout the Season. There is no minimum number of teams that may participate in a given League, but the Leagues have a maximum of one-hundred (100) teams. Leagues can be Public or Private. Public Leagues can be joined by anyone, provided the League has not reached its maximum number of teams. Private Leagues require the password of the League commissioner. In order for participants to be eligible for prizes, they must compete in a League of at least 6 teams, either Public or Private. Participants in Leagues with fewer than 6 teams will still earn points, but the winners of such Leagues will not be eligible for Weekly prizes or the Overall Prizes. League eligibility for prizes will be determined at the time winners are determined. For example, participants in a League with only 4 teams will not be eligible for Weekly prizes, but if that League gains two teams and reaches 6 teams during Week 15, then the winners of that League for weeks 15 through 36 will be eligible for the Weekly prizes, so long as the League remains at six teams or more. However, if a League with six (6) members is reduced to four (4) during week 12, those teams will no longer be eligible for Weekly and Overall prizes until they gain two (2) more members. Participants in Leagues with at least 6 teams at the end of the Game Period will be eligible for the Overall Prizes. Any registered participant can have up to five (5) active teams in up to five (5) different Leagues (maximum one team per League). A player can move a team from one League to another League at any time. A player may also remove a team from any League and continue playing, but any teams that are not in a prize-eligible League with at least six teams in it at the time prizes are being determined will not be eligible to receive any Weekly or Overall Prizes.

 

C.    Game Play:

 

Manage one or more teams of five (5) Monster Energy NASCAR 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; however, a participant may place the same driver on one or more of his or her five teams. Teams must fill the full roster of five drivers to be scored. Teams with four or fewer drivers selected will receive zero points for the week. A player will earn points each week as described below based on the performance of the drivers on the player’s team(s) 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.

 

D.   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 Tuesday of each Weekly Period, unless otherwise noted.

 

E.    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 must have a full roster of five drivers to receive points. Those with four or fewer drivers selected for the week will not receive points. 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.

 

F.    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. A pick for Winning Driver is not required to be on the active five person roster. If your team roster is not full with five (5) selected drivers for a given Week so that you do not receive any scoring points for that Week, you also may not earn any bonus points for that week. PICKS FOR WINNING DRIVER AND CAR MANUFACTURER DO NOT CARRY OVER WEEK TO WEEK.

 

G.   Salary Refund:

 

Should a driver’s value fall below the price originally purchased, a participant has the ability to Refund Salary via the circular arrow symbol located on the roster page. The Salary Refund tool frees up cap space by applying the current value to any driver who has a lower value than when purchased. A participant may refund salary at any time before the rosters lock for the current Race.

 

H.   Scoring Format:

 

The drivers participating in each of the 36 Races of the Monster Energy NASCAR 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 and Game (All Participants) 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.

 

I.      Scoring Categories:

 

Drivers are scored across five (5) 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 Kevin Harvick started 6th and finished 10th, his place differential would be -4, earning him -4 points.

 

REVISED! Finishing Position: 
1st place gets 40 points, 2nd place gets 35, 3rd place gets 34, 4th place gets 33 points and so on in decrements of one point per position, with 36th-40th place earning 1 point. The Game will be scored based on the final Race results tabulated by NASCAR Timing and Scoring.

 

 

NEW! Stage Points:
Drivers who are running 1st through 10th at the conclusion of Stage One (1) of the Race will receive stage points, starting with 10 points for 1st place, nine points for 2nd place, down to one point for 10th place. Drivers who are running 1st through 10th at the conclusion of Stage Two (2) of the Race will also receive Stage Points, starting with 10 points for 1st place, nine points for 2nd place, down to one point for 10th place. A driver’s Stage One (1) and Stage Two (2) points will then be added together for their Total Stage Points for that Race.

 

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.

 

 

Playoff Elimination Tournament:

 

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

 

12 Playoff Teams enter the Playoff Elimination Tournament

 

Playoff Points:

 

The following categories below are points awarded to teams based on certain things they did in the 26-race regular season. These points are what determines what each team will enter the Playoff Elimination Tournament with to start race #27, which kicks off round 1 of the Playoff Elimination Tournament.

 

5pts – awarded per race won in the final stage of each race

1pt – awarded per stage win (Only for Stages 1 & 2) in each race

 

Playoff Bonus Points: In addition to the points above, additional points will be awarded to the top 8 finishers in the regular season at the conclusion of race 26. Below are bonus points given out per position.

 

1st place – 12 points

2nd place – 8 points

3rd place – 6 points

4th place – 5 points

5th place – 4 points

6th place – 3 points

7th place – 2 points

8th place – 1 point

 

Example: Daytona 500: you come in 1st at the conclusion of stage 1, 5th at the conclusion of stage 2, and 1st at the conclusion of the final stage to win the race. In this scenario you would receive 1pt for your stage 1 victory, no points for finishing 5th in stage 2, and 5pts for finishing 1st in the final stage to win the race. You would receive a win (you need 2 wins to advance into the playoffs) and 6pts towards the playoffs (if you end up making the playoffs).

 

Please Note: The playoff points earned during the regular season will now advance through the third round of the playoffs. For further detail please read below.

 

The following is how the rounds in the Playoffs Elimination Tournament work.

 

 

Round 1           At the start of this round, all the playoff points earned in the regular season are added up and the teams that made the playoffs will start with their accumulated playoff point total. 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 and earn an additional 5 playoff points (per race won) towards the next round. Also if you earn a stage win you get 1 playoff point towards the next round in the playoffs. 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 playoffs. The remaining 9 teams that advance to round 2 will carry over their playoff point total to round 2.

 

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 and earn an additional 5 playoff points (per race won) towards the next round. Also if you earn a stage win you get 1 playoff point towards the next round in the playoffs.  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 playoffs. The remaining 6 teams that advance to round 3 will carry over their playoff point total to round 3.

 

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. Unlike previous rounds in the playoffs, if you win a race in round 3 you will not carry any points into 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 playoffs. The remaining 3 teams that advance to the Championship Round do not carry over any points.

 

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 playoffs will win the league. 2nd place is the next highest team that finishes second out of the three remaining playoff teams. 3rd place is the team that finishes last out of the three remaining playoff teams.
