Fantasy NASCAR Leagues: Team Owners

By Owen Jones_

Have you ever wondered what it would be like to be a NASCAR team owner or team leader? This is what the Fantasy NASCAR League allows you to experience. Several other sports offer fantasy leagues, and in fact the Fantasy NASCAR League was based on the original fantasy league, the Soccer Fantasy League, but for lovers of car racing, it is the best one.

If you do not know how the Fantasy NASCAR League works, it is quite simple to explain. People who register in the league become team owners, and they have to pick a racing team from the selection of real human drivers on the NASCAR circuit. These drivers then win points for the team, exactly as they do in real life.

This means that when one of your team members is participating in a real race, say at Pocono, you can cheer him on in the anticipation that he will add points to your team’s total. This makes it fairly realistic, except that you do not have to stump up the millions of dollars it would usually cost to own such a team and run it.

The Fantasy NASCAR League teams’ points totals are then held centrally and prizes are awarded at fixed intervals: monthly, quarterly, etc.. Some Fantasy NASCAR Leagues confer prizes of gear or equipment others award prizes of cash. Some charge to become a member, others do not.

The Fantasy NASCAR League began life in the Eighties after the success of the Fantasy Soccer League proved that the concept could work, but it did not truly take off until ten years later when the league became more available to more people over the Internet. Fantasy leagues based on Formula One and Indy soon followed.

There are in fact quite a few Fantasy NASCAR Leagues and the regulations vary slightly from league to league, although on the whole they all stick to the points awarded by NASCAR. However, there are often idiosyncratic rules to avoid ties such as restricting the number of times a driver’s results can count for a fantasy team depending on the status of that driver within that fantasy league.

There are all sorts of Fantasy NASCAR Leagues, some even include motorcycle races in the list of races that a team owner has to forecast, while other leagues place significance on such criteria as fastest lap time, average lap time or total time spent in first place. Sometimes these extra rules are more important with Fantasy NASCAR Leagues that build their results on fewer races

There is of course an official NASCAR Fantasy NASCAR League, which is available at its website. In this league team owners get a hundred million dollars to put together a team and the league is based on weekly results.

It also costs real money to play. However, you may think it a small price to pay to be involved with the sport you love at the official Fantasy NASCAR League level. For more details about the official Fantasy NASCAR League, please go over to their website.
