Joey Logano is between the benches with Brian Boucher for tonight's Flyers/Capitals game, which is apparently a Daytona 500 promotion.

The game is on NBC, which doesn't cover the 500. I don't think I've ever seen that sort of cooperation in NASCAR- you didn't even see that in the NFL until a couple years ago.

In case you missed it, Yahoo's fantasy NASCAR game is history. Searching for alternatives, I've found two:

NASCAR Fantasy Live Much like we've been playing with a set number of starts for drivers each season. It also has a pick the pole winner element for bonus points: https://fantasygames.nascar.com/live/picks
FOX Fantasy Auto This is the same model as the IndyCar game for those familiar. If you're not, it's pick five drivers and stay under the salary cap: https://www.foxsports.com/fantasy/auto/help/

Thoughts?

fake edit- We may have no choice- it sounds like the FOX game may not be coming back, either.

Yeah, if NASCAR is going to keep making double-file a thing on tracks where single-file is the only thing, letting drivers decide where the sweet spot is between track position and optimal line would be great.

The only problem I would have with this is how you would implement it without making cautions last too long. I guess the drivers would line up single file and start picking a lane with a two to go?

They don't line up the double-file until one or two laps before the restart anyway, so it wouldn't make a big difference

Is it not already a rule that 1st place picks his lane? I always thought it was.

No one behind should get a choice, because they're loving losing. That's how this poo poo works.

The leader picks their lane, no one else does.

The problem this is trying to solve is the scenario that happens all too often where you'd rather restart 4th than second.

Ok, since Yahoo Fantasy is dead, I made a new Fantasy thing on NASCAR.com. Password is sascar: https://fantasygames.nascar.com/liv...sy-refugee-camp

This works basically the same as Yahoo except it's 10 starts per driver and, in a fun new twist, you can swap out drivers between your roster and bench between Stages if you so choose.

quote:

For 2018, Fantasy Live has changed from a salary cap game to a model that allows a limited use of each Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series™ driver over the course of a season. Each participant may only use a particular driver a maximum of ten (10) times per Team over the course of the entire Game Period.

Manage one or more teams of five (5) Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series™ drivers, picking drivers with the best chance at scoring the most points each week. One (1) additional driver may be added to a Garage roster slot before the beginning of a Race, and substituted for one of the starting drivers while the Race is in progress up until the end of Stage 2.

Drivers do not automatically carry over from Race to Race, so participants must return to the Website each week to place drivers on their Team Roster(s). Participants may place the same driver on one or more of his or her five teams, however, each participant may only use a single driver a maximum of ten times per Team over the course of the entire Game Period. A full Team Roster of five drivers is not required to be scored. A participant will earn points each week as described below based on the performance of the drivers on the participant’s team(s) for that week. Participants can also earn bonus points each week by successfully predicting the pole winner, the winning driver(s) for Stage 1, Stage 2, and overall, and/or the winning car manufacturer for a particular Race.

Bonus points categories are:

quote:

For bonus points, participants will need to select their Pole Winner, Stage 1 Winner, Stage 2 Winner, Winning Driver and Car Manufacturer predictions each week.

A bunch of contrived changes to the now six-minute clock for repairs, any five roster pit crew members being allowed over the wall to repair a car, speeding on pit road to beat the pace car resulting in 15 seconds of lost repair time, as well as drivers being held two laps instead of parked for too many men over the wall in the process of trying to repair the car can be found here: https://twitter.com/bobpockrass
