Brief League Info:

The league will consist 16 regular season races and 10 playoff races. Each race of the regular season the team that wins a race gets a win. This league has a unique strategy where you need to set a roster of 5 drivers each week and also need to pick the pole winner, race winner, and stage winners to get extra bonus points. The catch to your driver lineup is that you can only start each driver 10 X during the game. At the end of the 16 regular season races the playoffs will be set to begin. The 12 playoff teams that make the playoffs are determined by this order of criteria; most # of race wins during the regular season and then total amount of points scored during the regular season. Similar to the real nascar playoffs, after the first 3 races of the playoffs, the bottom 3 teams get eliminated. 9 teams remain and then we go 3 more races and then the bottom 3 teams in round 2 get eliminated. 6 teams remain and then we go 3 more races and then the bottom 3 teams in round 3 get eliminated. At the end of each of those first three rounds, all remaining playoff teams are ranked by this criteria; most # of race wins during that round and then total amount of points scored held at the end of that round (Playoff Points brought into that round + Championship Points earned during that round + Playoff Points earned during that round), to determine which three are the bottom teams that are eliminated. The final round consists of 3 teams left and they compete at Indianapolis to determine the Legends of Nascar Champion!

How the “Nascar Fantasy Live” game works

I keep track of the Elimination Playoff Bracket on my website and try to send out updates every week.

Playoff Points:

The points below are given out for each of the 16 regular season races. These points are called “Playoff Points” mainly because these are the only points that carry over into the playoffs. When the playoffs start each team’s playoff points are added up and will start the first race of the playoffs with their playoff points total. These playoff points carry over into round 2 and round 3 if you make it there. These points do not carry over into the final round which is the Indy race.

1st Place – 30 Playoff Points

2nd Place – 9 Playoff Points

3rd Place – 8 Playoff Points

4th Place – 7 Playoff Points

5th Place – 6 Playoff Points

6th Place – 5 Playoffs Points

7th Place – 4 Playoffs Points

Please Note: If there are ties to any spots in the top 7 for one of the races then the amount of 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 (8 + 7 + 6 = 21) then divide it by 3 (# of teams tied) to get 7. That means the 3 teams would each receive 7 playoff points.
