First things first I'd like to acknowledge the champions. In the Trucks, it took a long time for him to get the other competitors off his back, but he was able to enter Homestead with some relief. Spen was able to take home the inaugural Fantasy NASCAR Predictor Cup Truck Series Championship (long title, I know). Congratulations Spen.
The Nationwide Series saw pure dominance from this competitor. He was the Joey Logano of the season as he predicted the winner an astounding 9 times. Congratulations to Jr88fan for winning the inaugural Fantasy NASCAR Predictor Cup Nationwide Series Championship.
The Sprint Cup Series definitely had its ups and downs. NicoRosbergFan dominated the first half of the season reaching point leads past 20 points. For the longest time it seemed no one could catch him. Kevin17fan was clearly the underdog. He rarely predicted the winner, but he remained competitive and ready to strike. Thomas jumped into the hunt coming into the final quarter and not wasting any time and taking the point lead. Coming into the final race, even Cja had a clear shot at winning it. Not to mention Joey2448 coming back from a slow start and making a valiant effort to defend his title. And that he did.
I mean, I'm sure you're all going to do a quick double take when I say, Mark Martin won Joey2448 his 2nd championship in a row. It was Mark Martin that was in Joey2448's top-5 prediction that gave him that advantage in the tiebreaker. It's quite a feat to be the best predictor of all that compete two years in a row. So congratulations to Joey2448 for doing just that and congrats to NicoRosbergFan for making it closer than Carl Edwards, you deserve a lot of credit as well.
And now to the useless awards that I'm completely making up!
The Domination Award!
Without a doubt, NicoRosbergFan deserves this award. Finishing 2nd in the points in the Cup and the Trucks as well as 5th in the Nationwide. However there is one more competitor that did almost just as good. Kevin17fan. Finishing 3rd, 4th, and 3rd in each series final points, makes him the only other competitor that finished in the top-5 in points in all 3 series. Congratulations to both of you!
The Comeback Award!
The champion Joey2448 receives this award. He was flirting with the top-20 during most of the first half of the season. Next thing we knew, he was showing that he wanted to defend his title and he did it in style. That was a great comeback, Joey, Congrats!
Rookie of the Year!
I feel I wasted enough of your time. So this is the last one. There were many rookies this year but I would like to acknowledge Thomas for showing some muscle at the end of the season, haha. Congrats Thomas!
