The people at NASCAR.com have released their Fantasy Live game for the playoffs. They made a lot of changes to the game so be sure to read the rules I wrote about below. If you played in the regular season Fantasy Live Game, you will automatically be put into the same league for the playoffs.
The game will run from Las Vegas until Homestead (The first race of the Playoffs until the Championship race). The overall point’s leader after the final NASCAR Playoffs race will be crowned NASCAR Fantasy Live 2019 Playoffs champion and win $5,000. Ten weekly prizes of $250 NASCAR Superstore credits will also be awarded to randomly select weekly NASCAR Fantasy Live 2018 Playoff Game league winners.
Here is how to play…
Teams must select 4 Drivers for your team. 2 of the drivers will be from the field of 16 Playoff Drivers and 2 will be from the field of Non-Playoff Drivers. There will not be any allocations so you can use a driver every week if you want to.
Teams will select 1 Garage Driver for the race. This driver can be inserted into your lineup before the end of Stage 2 (The same as the regular season). If you select a Playoff Driver to be in your Garage, you can only use him to replace a Playoff Driver in your lineup. If you choose a Non-Playoff Driver for your garage, you can only replace a Non-Playoff Driver in your lineup. You must have 2 Playoff Driver and 2 Non-Playoff Drivers in your lineup at all times.
Drivers will be awarded points based on Stage Points won and Finishing Position (Same as the regular season Fantasy Live Game).
Bonus picks will also remain for the Busch Pole Winner, Stage Winners, Race Winner and Winning Manufacturer.
Before the NASCAR Playoffs begin in Las Vegas, each player will be asked to pick who they think will win the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series Championship. Correct picks will be rewarded with 60 additional bonus points.
My pick to win the 2019 Championship is Denny Hamlin
Here are my early week picks for Las Vegas…
The updated picks will be posted Saturday night after qualifying.
Good Luck this Season and be sure to follow me on Twitter @MrFantasyNASCAR
