    Fantasy NASCAR

    Are there any here that would be interested in a Cyclone Fanatic Fantasy NASCAR league through Yahoo? Post a reply if you are and if there are enough (6+) I'll set it up.

    I'd be interested in it.


    Cyclone
    Iowa State became the Cyclones after they leveled Northwestern in 1895. As the Chicago Tribune (9/29/1895) noted:
    'Struck by a Cyclone
    It Comes from Iowa and Devastates Evanston Town'

    Re: Fantasy NASCAR

    Usually (well, in the fantasy NASCAR games I have been in the last few years) you have an "auction" where you have a set amount of "money" to bid on drivers. You win 4 drivers and can "start" 3 per race. Then whatever Cup points they get, you get, and you are paired against one of the other people in the group and whoever they have as their drivers.

    If it matters to anyone, we can probably get CF credits awarded to the top three.

    Re: Fantasy NASCAR

    Through Yahoo there is no bidding on drivers. It's a tiered setup.

    There's a top, middle, and lower level of drivers. You pick 1 driver from the top and lower levels and 2 from the middle level and you get points based on their finish in the Nextel Cup race. The catch is that you can only use a single driver 9 times in a season. So you could select Jimmy Johnson or Jr. for the first 9 races but after that their finishes don't count for you if you have them on your team. It's really pretty simple. Doesn't take much effort. Actually the hardest part is remembering to set you line-up each race but if you do forget, your line-up from the previous week is used.

    Hrmm. Not sure I like that setup.

    Maybe I'll just stick with my NASCAR.com Ultimate Fantasy League.

    OK. It's setup. I forgot to mention you need a Yahoo account - but it's free.


    In order to join the group, You'll need to go to Yahoo! Sports Fantasy Auto Racing, click on the "Sign Up" button to create a team. After completing registration, or if you already have a team, click the "Create or Join Group" button and follow the path to join an existing private group. Then, when prompted, enter the following information...
    Group ID#: 23007
    Password: gostate

    let me know if you have problems
