When it comes to Fantasy NASCAR pools, the total amount of prizes grows with the number of teams playing the game. The bigger the pool gets, the bigger the prizes.
Can you put together the best 8-car fantasy team?
How To Play
Entering a pool game like the Salary Cap Challenge is one of the easiest Fantasy NASCAR games out there. You set your roster at the beginning of the season and roll with it for the whole year–although you’re allowed three trades if you want. Just make sure you stay under the salary cap!
How To Win
There are a few ways to take home prize money in this pool. By having the highest score in one of the 36 races, you get $25.00. Also, the top 25 teams for the entire season take home cash prizes. Those amounts are determined by the number of teams in the pool.
2019 Prize Structure for the Salary Cap Challenge
The “Prize Pot” referenced in the chart is calculated by taking the number of registered teams multiplied by $30.00, and then subtracting $900 (for the Weekly Win prizes). So, if there are 308 teams in the pool--as there were in 2018--the "Prize Pot" would be $8,340, as ($30 x 308 = $9,240) minus $900 = $8,340. The “Places” below will be determined based on the ‘Standings Calculation’ section within the Official Rules.
Teams registered for the 2019 pool = 50 and counting
It's So Easy To Play
At just $30.00 per team to play, the Salary Cap Challenge is not only fun, but also affordable. Once you set your lineup, you can roll with it for the entire year if you'd like.
Building Your Fantasy Team
Think of yourself as a team owner. You get a budget, and drivers have a salary. You have to put together an 8-man team by staying at or below your spending limit.
How You Score Fantasy Points
You score points based on your the cars on your team perform. You get points for finishing position, wins, poles, Stage finishes, and laps led.
