Ok everyone Now is the time to form your teams, I noticed you guys were proactive and created your teams in the last blog I posted even though I hadnt posted a full drivers lineup. One thing is that even though some drivers didnt race last year they will still have a point value (No driver will ever have a value of zero.)
Here is the full list of driver point values:
1-10th: 1st-50 10th-41
11-20th: 11th-40 20th-31
21-30th: 21st-31 30-21
31-36th: 31st-20 36th-14
All Drivers below 36th place in 2012 Standings are a base value of 5 points
Team Change dates are as follows:
Week 1: Week of Feb 24th (Daytona 500 Week)
Week 2: Week of Mar 24th (Auto Club 400 Week)
Week 3: Week of May 5th (Aarons 499 Week)
Week 4: Week of Jun 15th (Quicken Loans 400 Week)
Week 5: Week of Jul 28th (Brickyard 400 Week)
Final Week: Week of Sep 15th (Geico 400 Week)
Special Event Team Changes
Sprint All Star Race, All point values for any driver are out the window for this even, pick ANY driver eligible for this event and earn chase seeding points based on how your team does.
Road Course Ringers Rule:
During the weeks of the two Road Course event everyone is allowed to change one of their primary team drivers to a road course ringer for the week, most ringers are below 36th in points so it will only cost 5 points if you so choose.
BONUS DRIVERS NOTICE!!!!!
Bonus Drivers are given on a first come first served basis, If any player comes in during the season I will let them know which drivers are taken.
This is the official start of the season, if you see a bonus driver used above your post YOU CAN NOT PICK THAT DRIVER!
Do to this rule I have now decided to end my posting on the Message board at racing-reference.info/forums. I will now exclusively post all game related materials here in the blog section (And thank you webmaster for splitting the fantasy games from the original blogs I appreciate that greatly.)
More 2013 Rules:
How points are earned from finishing a race:
All 4 drivers will accumulate points from their finishing position (including all bonus points earned for that race.) As with the last iteration of my game I will award special points for special achievememnts which are as follows:
Driver Winning: 1 extra point and (3) seeding points.
1-2 Finish: 5 extra points
1-2-3 Finish: 15 extra points
Grand Slam (1-4 position sweep): 50 extra points and (1) seeding point if before the chase.
All 4 Drivers in Top 10: 5 extra points
All 4 drivers in Top 5: 20 extra points
I think that covers nearly every rule for the start of this game. I would also like everyone to come up with a unique team name for each of their teams (Like the real nascar teams have)
For instance my Team name is going to be: Dragon Motorsports Inc.
Your username will be attached to the team name and will be included in all results.
This is of course optional.
And lastly today I would really like to have a minimum of 12 teams competing from the start of the year so we can have a full chase field at the end of the year. As long as someone creates a team prior to the Daytona 500 I will continue to count up their results every single week until conclusion, So please tell anyone you know about this game. Its all in good fun.
Thank You everyone for your continued support of this game as we enter our 5th(!!) year of the RRFFL.
