  1. "Old vs. New Points - WEEK 24" posted by Riverside on August 31, 2013   (3 comments)

    SPRINT CUP, NATIONWIDE, TRUCK SERIES, EAST & WEST SERIES, MOD + SOUTHERN MOD, + ARCA updated.

    CHASE NEWS: So, mathematically JOHNSON, BOWYER and EDWARDS are in no matter what, and everyone from JEFF BURTON upwards has a mathematical chance of making the CHASE, though I think only McMURRAY upward have realistic, if slim, chances of making it.

  2. "Updated Grand-Am Standings" posted by David on August 31, 2013   (4 comments)

    Since I'm never kept in the loop about anything, and because I lack common sense when it comes to fantasy games (and also because I'm stupid), it's only natural I would screw this up. I mistakenly thought that a win meant scoring the most points, but NicoRosbergFan pointed out (no pun intended) that it actually meant picking the winner. I thank him ....

    Welcome to the inaugural predictions page of the NASCAR Home Tracks Fantasy Predictor Cup! Without further ado, let's get to the predictions! Remember, for Indy Lights, you can only predict the top 5.

  6. "NASCAR Predictor Cup Standings After Bristol/Announcements" posted by The Long Shot on August 26, 2013   (7 comments)

    Before we get to the standings, I have three announcements for you. First off, I'd like to give a hearty welcome back to 24over48!! He will be taking the game over again next year, so you won't have to deal with me running the show for much longer. And although he did not submit any Bristol picks, I will let him participate in the Chase, meaning that .... Read the rest of this blog


  7. "The Safety Car" posted by Kubica Fan Ireland on August 24, 2013   (1 comment)

    Hopefully third time lucky this will work. I am doing a one off blog to post my feelings on the silly season permutations for driver and team line ups. This blog is to promote debate and analysis. One and all are welcome to post their opinions, even if they are diametrically different to my views. I have a few ideas for a couple of different blog posts, .... Read the rest of this blog


  8. "Fantasy League/24over48 Comeback 2014?" posted by 24over48 on August 24, 2013   (16 comments)

    Hello everyone. I know it has been a while. I'm just going to go straight to it. I left because I did not feel I had enough support to continue to "waste my time" and "please everybody". After thinking about it for a long time, I made a wrong decision. I let you guys down completely instead of trying to solve things.

    I'm asking for forgiveness .... Read the rest of this blog

    I will now start accepting predictions for this weekend's racing!

    IndyCar is at Sonoma, picks due at 4:30PM sharp on 8/25/13. Note, JR Hildebrand is in the 98, Lucas Luhr in the 97, TBA in the 18, and Ryan Briscoe in the 4 (I still say Servia is a FAR better driver).

    Formula 1 is at Spa, picks .... Read the rest of this blog


  13. "NASCAR Fantasy Predictor Cup Standings After Michigan" posted by The Long Shot on August 19, 2013   (6 comments)

    NOTE: I will be out of town on Labor Day Weekend, so next week's prediction page will be for both Atlanta AND Richmond. I might be able to post the Atlanta standings before Richmond, but I make no promises. I do promise, however, that this will be just a one week thing, and everything will be back to normalcy for the Chase.

    I also promise that .... Read the rest of this blog

    Hello once again, as we enter another exciting round of...the Racing-Reference Grand-Am Fantasy League! This weekend, we visit my home track, Kansas Speedway, the only professional sports venue in the Kansas part of Kansas City. As the third-to-last event of the season, the battles on and off the track are intensifying. And so are the battles for the .... Read the rest of this blog


  16. "Respect: A Plea For Sanity" posted by The Long Shot on August 15, 2013   (18 comments)

    Respect. To some, it's nothing more than the title of a popular Aretha Franklin song. To others, however, it means a lot more.

    Admittedly, 2013 has been one of the worst years in auto racing history. From bad racing, to terrible announcing, to, saddest of all, driver fatalities, this season has been just awful for all of us who comment on Racing-Reference .... Read the rest of this blog


  17. "Formula 1 Mid-Season Review" posted by Biscuits In A Red Bull on August 15, 2013   (6 comments)

    Well, here we are then. After 10 races, we've had 5 different winners from 4 teams, but Sebastian Vettel, yet again, seems to have a firm grip on the 2013 Formula 1 World Driver's Championship. With 4 wins to his name this season (2 more than the nearest rival), Vettel really looks like this season is his to lose. But is it really that simple?

    No. .... Read the rest of this blog


  18. "SPEED (2002-2013)" posted by Uptight Motorsports Nerd on August 15, 2013   (3 comments)

    My cable offers me 14 24-hour sports channels, 10 (11 once Al Jazeera America launches) 24-hour news/financial channels, and 1 24-hour motorsports channel. With the closure of SPEED I will have 0 motorsports channels and 15 24-sports channels. SPEED was more than just the channel that capitalized every letter of its name despite not being an acronym .... Read the rest of this blog


  19. "RR Fantasy" posted by Hinch27 on August 14, 2013   (17 comments)

    I thought I was going to just keep these going after seeing the trolling and let people calm down for a few weeks and apologize, but then I saw how giddy murb is about this, and I realized that he trolled me. With how triumphant and how "in your face" he was, I realized that he purposely trolled as that "Anonymous" to try to get this reaction out of .... Read the rest of this blog


  20. "Grand-Am Rolex Round 9 Results" posted by David on August 13, 2013   (4 comments)

    If you've been wondering if I even knew there was a Rolex race this weekend (at my home track, no less), well, I did. At least since last night.

    From now on, I will start posting the points earned for each player. Here they are, in the order they posted (by coincidence, also the overall points):

    GT: 60

  21. "NFL Week In Review: Season Predictions" posted by The Long Shot on August 13, 2013   (25 comments)

    In case anybody has not heard, I will be posting a weekly NFL blog on here. All the NFL discussions that we have on the regular comments page are intelligent and, for me, very fun, and I'd like to expand on those occasional discussions by giving people a weekly place to post their NFL opinions. My hope is that other people might be willing to do this .... Read the rest of this blog

  23. "NASCAR Fantasy Predictor Cup Standings After Watkins Glen" posted by The Long Shot on August 12, 2013   (7 comments)

    ATTENTION PREDICTORS: In order to be eligible for the Chase reset, you must still be actively predicting by the Bristol night race in 2 weeks. All predictors who haven't predicted by then will be declared inactive, so congratulations numbah48n10hatah, you just barely made the deadline to return!

  25. "NASCAR Generations" posted by Hinch27 on August 8, 2013   (14 comments)

    I thank Ryan W. for giving me the idea for this post. He made a comment on David's blog saying the season finale should be an "Earnhardt 450" at Daytona. I though about this, and I thought of the way that basically every other sport (including every other racing sanctioning body) finds ways to honor fallen heroes or all-time greats, like the Lombardi ....

    Sorry for the delay, folks. I wasn't in any hurry given the next IndyCar or F1 race is August 25th.

    The Results!!!

    This week's MIPA goes to The Long Shot for getting 13 points, as cjs and I continue are epic collapse. There is a 20 point gap between all competitors, despite the fact that cja and I .... Read the rest of this blog

  29. "NASCAR Fantasy Predictor Cup: Complete Chase Reset" posted by The Long Shot on August 5, 2013   (8 comments)

    As most of you probably remember, 24over48 said on his first blog of the year that he had planned to have a Chase this year, and I still plan to carry that out. By my calculations, on average the Fantasy Predictor Cup has around 12-14 players each week. Since I'm trying to gain back as many players as possible, I don't want to exclude anybody, so here ....
