Official Rules for The Showcase

Just so we're all on the same page, let's make sure you know how to play the game.

Overall League Rules & How To Play

  • The entry fee is $75.00 per team. There is no limit on the number of teams that a player registers.
  • Each “team” will be a separate login and account on the website to enter picks.
  • The Showcase runs from February 17, 2019 through November 17, 2019. Only the 36 points-paying Cup Series races are used in this contest.
  • For each points-paying race (36 scheduled events), each team will submit a “Roster”–four drivers as well as one “All Star Driver,” for a team total of five drivers. All five drivers must be different. The significance of the “All Star Driver” is explained in the “Scoring” section below. Each driver is limited to 5 “All Star Driver” selections per team for the entire season. If a team picks a driver as their “All Star Driver” and has already chosen that driver as the “All Star Driver” five times, they will get ZERO (0) points for that driver. A chart will be provided to each team so that they know how many times they have picked each driver as the “All Star Driver.” It will show up on the same page when submitting picks.
  • Picks are due at the scheduled green flag for every points-paying race. That time will be listed on the “Submit Picks” page and there will be a countdown. It is recommended that you submit a roster before the closing time.
  • If the race is delayed until the next day, you will be able to submit picks until the next scheduled green flag. If the race is just being delayed for a few hours, the submission page will remain closed after it’s original scheduled closing, unless the administrator extends the period (an email will be sent notifying teams of this).
  • You can change your roster as many times as you want in a given week before the submission page closes. Once the “Submit Picks” page locks, you cannot change your roster.
  • If a team does not submit a roster, the team’s roster from the previous week will be carried forward and used. If this continues for three straight points-paying races, the team will be “Black Flagged” and stop scoring points starting with the fourth straight race. The “Black Flag” will be lifted once the team submits a new roster, and the team will start scoring as normal.
  • The administrator’s team (“jnmcabee”) is not eligible for any cash prizes, although will participate in the game purely for competition.

Scoring

  • Each driver will score fantasy points based on the scoring provisions outlined below. The fantasy points for the “All Star Driver” for each will be doubled. For example, if Kyle Busch scores 80 points using the scoring provisions outlined below, and he is your “All Star Driver,” he will earn you 160 points (80 x 2) in that roster position.
  • Each "Team" will earn a "Weekly Score" by adding together the points earned by their four "Regular" drivers and their one "All Star Driver."
  • Every driver will be assigned a specific number of handicap points before the race and those will be added to the points accumulated during the race to arrive at the driver’s weekly score. These handicap points will be listed on the “Submit Picks” page underneath the form to submit your weekly picks. These change every week and are based on all individual driver’s history at that week’s track as well as their recent finishes in the series.
  • Drivers will also receive points based on their finishing position in each race. A 1st-place finish earns 80 fantasy points, a 2nd-place finish earns 78 fantasy points, etc. A 40th-place finish earns 2 fantasy points.
  • Drivers will earn 0.25 fantasy points per lap led in the race. So, if a driver leads 100 laps in a race, they will earn 25 fantasy points for that race.
  • Drivers will earn or lose 0.75 fantasy points per position gained or lost from his/her official qualifying position. For example, if Kyle Busch starts 2nd and finishes 22nd, he will lose 15 fantasy points for that race. If he would start 22nd and finish 2nd, he would gain 15 fantasy points for that race. Please note: we will use NASCAR's official starting position to calculate these points. If there is any confusion, please contact the administrator.
  • The driver that wins the race will receive twenty (20) additional fantasy points.
  • Fantasy points will be awarded to drivers each race based on the two first “Stages” of the race, which are set by NASCAR. The 1st place finisher of each “Stage” will receive ten (10) fantasy points, 2nd place will receive nine (9) fantasy points, etc. down to 10th, which will receive one (1) fantasy point. This is only for the first two “Stages” of each race, unless otherwise announced by the administrator. For example, there were three stages awarded points with the Coca-Cola 600 in 2017. Also, the Championship drivers still receive Stage points in The Showcase during the Homestead race, although they do not in “real life.” The final finishing order of the race will receive fantasy points as outlined above.
  • Any penalties accrued by a driver or team will not be considered in this fantasy game.
  • Teams will earn fantasy points based on how the drivers picked each race finish, not the car number. It is the player’s responsibility to make sure that the drivers they pick are all participating in the race. Any driver that does not start the race will score zero (0) fantasy points.

Standings Calculation & Tiebreakers

  • Each team will earn fantasy points based on the “Scoring” rules above. All scores for each team will be added together for a cumulative total (“Standings”), which will be updated after each points-paying race.
  • Each team’s lowest four scores of the season will be dropped to calculate the overall points standings. After week 9, the posted standings will reflect one drop in effect. After week 10, the posted standings will reflect two drops in effect. After week 11, the posted standings will reflect three drops in effect. After week 12 and thereafter, the posted standings will reflect the four lowest scores for each team being dropped. Dropping the four lowest scores of the season can be thought of as “mulligans” and is also done in case any players sign up after the season-opening race.
  • If there is a tie among teams for prize money for any Overall or Weekly Prizes, the prizes for the tied spot as well as the next prize(s) will be added together and split evenly between the teams. For example, if there is a two-way tie between two teams for 1st place, the 1st- and 2nd-place prizes will be added together and split evenly between the two teams. If there is a three-way tie for 1st place, the 1st-, 2nd-, and 3rd-place prizes will be added together and split evenly between the three teams. Etc. The next team in the Standings will then earn their respective prize, so if there's a 2-way tie for 1st, the next team will finish and earn the prize for 3rd, since the two tying teams got the 1st- and 2nd-place prizes.
