Legends Of Nascar Fantasy Money League - 30 Teams, Nascar Playoff Elimination Format, $40 entry fee paid through league safe


Recommended Posts

Hey guys, this is a very fun fantasy nascar league returning for its 3rd year. We ran with 27 teams last year but are looking to get a sold 30 owners. This league is pretty much a mirror of Nascar with its fun playoff format! Please email me at mjbnmr59755@gmail.com if you would like to join. Thanks!

 

Basics


27 Teams
26 Regular Season Races (Race 1 – Race 26)
10 Playoff Races (Race 27 – Race 36), 16 Teams Make The Playoffs

4 Elimination Rounds

Entry Fee: $40 / Paid through Leaguesafe.com

Held on Fantrax

 

Roster:

 

Pick 7 Drivers for each race based on a salary cap ($75K) and salary for each driver (minimum $4K) that is generated each race by Fantrax. Drivers not actively dropped/replaced will remain on team’s roster for the next race at the salary at which they were originally obtained.

 

Scoring System:

 

Each scoring category is for each driver in each race of the 36-race NASCAR season.

 

Points Based on Finishing Position = 40pts for 1st, 35pts for 2nd, decreasing 1 point per position to 1 point for 36th, with 1 point for 36th to 40th as in NASCAR

Each Laps Led = 0.25 points

Most Laps Led = 3 points

Positions Gained From Qualifying Spot = 0.75

Positions Lost From Qualifying Spot = - 0.75

Points For Finishing in Stages 1 and 2 = 10pts for 1st, 9pts for 2nd, 8pts for 3rd, ….. 1pt for 10th

 

The total points for each team’s 7 drivers are added up for each race. These are the “Fantrax points” referred to through the rest of these rules – they do not include playoff points. The team with the most Fantrax points wins the race. In case of a tie on points, the following tiebreakers apply:

 

1.     Race-winning driver on team

2.     Most finishing position points (Plc points) for the race 

3.     Most Fantrax points from single driver for the race

4.     Most Fantrax points accumulated for the season

5.     Most finishing position points (Plc points) accumulated for the season

6.     If a tie remains, fractional wins are awarded to each of the top tied teams

 

Playoff Points:

 

These are bonus points that are accumulated during the regular season and playoffs, giving teams who had success during the regular season an edge in the playoffs and giving teams who have success early in the playoffs an edge in future playoff rounds. Once the 26-race regular season has concluded all teams that made the playoffs will have their points reset and will start the playoffs with the amount of playoff points earned in the regular season (see playoff elimination bracket section for full details). Playoff points continue to be earned in the playoffs but only by teams that are participating in the Playoff Elimination Bracket. Once a team is eliminated from the playoffs, that team will no longer accumulate playoff points in the playoffs but does take up spots. So this means if a non-playoff team wins a stage or wins a race no playoff points will be awarded for that stage win or race win.

 

Playoff Points given out at each race:

 

Each Race Winner: 50 Playoff Points

Team with most accumulated stage 1 points – 10 Playoff Points

Team with most accumulated stage 2 points – 10 Playoff Points

 

*When awarding the playoff points for stages 1 & 2 other points calculated on Fantrax are not included – only stage points accumulated during that stage. If there are any ties the playoff points are added together then divided by the number of teams tied.

 

Playoff Points given out at the end of the 26-race regular season based exclusively on total Fantrax points accumulated by each team:

 

Regular Season Winner: 150 Playoff Points

Regular Season 2nd Place 100 Playoff Points

Regular Season 3rd Place 80 Playoff Points

Regular Season 4th Place: 70 Playoff Points

Regular Season 5th Place 60 Playoff Points

Regular Season 6th Place: 50 Playoff Points

Regular Season 7th Place: 40 Playoff Points

Regular Season 8th Place: 30 Playoff Points

Regular Season 9th Place: 20 Playoff Points

Regular Season 10th Place: 10 Playoff Points 

 

Please Note: If there are ties for any spots in the top 10 then the amount of points for the positions tied will be added up and then divided by the number of teams tied. For example, 3 teams are tied for 3rd place. We would add 3rd, 4th, and 5th place playoffs points given out (80 + 70 + 60 = 210) then divide the total by 3 (# of teams tied) to get 70. That means the 3 teams would each receive 70 playoff points.

Consolation Playoffs:

 

The teams that did not make the playoffs will compete in the consolation. All teams that didn’t make the playoffs will get their Fantrax points reset to zero and will start off with their playoff points accumulated in the regular season. There will be no elimination rounds so the team that scores the most Fantrax points from race 27 to race 36 with the accumulated playoff points from the regular season only will win the Consolation Prize.
