Sang - 2/10/2019 at 07:55 PM

well jump in


nebish - 2/11/2019 at 02:07 PM

I will get it set up.


nebish - 2/12/2019 at 03:19 PM

Dan, the league is still there from last year. I did change the name:

This year's name is : Can't Lose What You Never Had
This year's password is : Joey

Dan, you shouldn't have to do anything.

Sang, this is on the NASCAR website, yahoo discontinued their offering. The format is different, but in some ways better. I will help you however you need it in order to get it figured out.

https://www.nascar.com/fantasy

You will have to create a login.

It might be easier if I email you an invite as I'm not sure how to post links here, it is all window navigation without links I can copy and paste.

Alan's team from last year is there too. Not sure if leafsfan was one of those other names or not.


Sang - 2/12/2019 at 07:33 PM

That is definitely the way DanB likes things.......


Sang - 2/13/2019 at 07:20 PM

OK, I signed up, although it took a few times because it somehow thought my email address was invalid.....

Could you explain the use of the Garage man for me (better than the way they explain it)?

You're in! I think leafsfan is in too, CDN Horsepower baby!

Think of the garage selection as a back-up.

NASCAR has 3 stages of each race. Before the end of the 2nd stage during the race you can swap any of your starting drivers with the garage driver. So if you have a guy wreck or blow an engine or just suck that day, you can put that starter in the garage and insert your backup driver. The guy who ends the race in the garage does not get counted as a used start and you don't get any race accumulate points for garage drivers. The 5 you have in your starting lineup at race's end is what will count for your points and usage. When the playoffs start in race #27, they tweak the use of the garage driver, but we can go over that later.

I'm glad you are in! Let me know if you need anything else.


leafsfan - 2/15/2019 at 04:05 PM

I am in!!! Sadly Cdn Driver DJ Kennington is not.

Have to add the racing last night and last weekend made figure skating look exciting. Single file racing is going to put the most addicted Nascar fan to sleep.

Truck race will be best race of the weekend.




nebish - 2/15/2019 at 05:07 PM

Agree on last night, although I fell asleep during the second one. Single file high line racing sucks. My only hope is that when the whole field is on the track it will take longer for them to get single file.

I will delete a couple users from the league who don't play Sunday. I know of atleast two people who aren't going to do it this year. But with the addition of Sang and leafsfan it is a positive gain!


DanB - 2/16/2019 at 02:42 PM

Sang is never a positive gain

eFf Snag


Sang - 2/16/2019 at 11:36 PM

I've won already .....


nebish - 2/17/2019 at 03:44 PM

Happy Daytona Day!


Bhawk - 2/17/2019 at 05:20 PM

Hopefully that Infinity snoozefest isn't indicative of the kinds of racing we will see today.


nebish - 2/18/2019 at 02:13 PM

It was nice to see the upper and lower lines could both take control of the race at a given time. All the crashes...the Menard crash, think he was bump drafting the 95, that was just too much push in the wrong spot. I chalk that up to the style of racing at the plate tracks and the unfortunate results that often happen. The last two wrecks were just stupid driving, Stenhouse putting his car where it wouldn't fit and Boyer made a great move to get around the 34, but wasn't cleared to come up and ruined his own race and those of others.

The ending of the race had potential, there just wasn't enough cars left at that point.


nebish - 2/18/2019 at 02:16 PM

Oh, the fantasy league...we have 9 active players and just 3 who didn't play.

I guess Alanwoods is out this year.

I am Full Can of Sunoco Racin Fuel. Thirsty, Salsa, Howard Stern's Butt and Howard Stern's Wife are a few of my good friends and Crowsterll is my niece. Everyone here who is playing should recognize the other member's names. I'll delete the nonactive users going forward.


Sang - 2/18/2019 at 10:34 PM

You might want to leave them so DanB thinks he beat somebody......

Guess Hamlin as my garage man wasn't the best call .....

Atleast he was on your radar.


leafsfan - 2/20/2019 at 07:34 PM

LOL yes leave them, this canuck needs some help after blowing out at Daytona.


Sang - 3/6/2019 at 06:31 PM

Since this never happens, just wanted to point out that I won this weeks race.........


nebish - 3/6/2019 at 06:36 PM

Something else that almost never happens, I didn't watch the race or change my garage driver. Just letting everyone get a head start so I can pass you all on my way to the top!


nebish - 3/13/2019 at 04:03 AM

Told you. You guys won't beat me!


Sang - 3/13/2019 at 04:17 AM

Well, danb won't..................


Sang - 3/25/2019 at 07:37 PM

Still hanging in there ..... and ahead of danb...........


nebish - 4/29/2019 at 12:17 PM

If anyone hasn't noticed, there are essentially 5 of us playing in the league. Myself, my two friends in Charlotte Steve and Sandy (Mr and Mrs Howard Stern screen names), Sang and Leafsfan. DanB hasn't submitted a lineup since week 1 so soon he will be getting zeros as his week 1 driver allotment is used up. Not sure what happened to him.

But we do have a competitive group of 5. 1st place has 1962 season pts, but the rest of us are lumped in the 1800 pt range ready to make some passes if anyone in front has trouble.

Sang, it's time you set your sights higher than just beating Dan. Think big!


leafsfan - 4/29/2019 at 03:19 PM

Good race yesterday, LArson's roll over was impressive.

What I don't get in the pool is when you can change roster. You would think you could change it today when you look up your standings.

Also can you set roster for coming weeks ahead of time?

Cheers, great to see a new winner this week. 22 and 2 winning weekly along with 18 are boring the crap out of me.

I enjoyed the race too. Man I feel bad for Larson, just such a rough year and that was some roll!

I hear you Mike. I had one other person (who sometimes remembers to do lineups) tell me they wish they could set their lineup weeks in advance since they always forget. Not sure why we can't do it atleast for next week now...just not how their program is set up.

Penske was still really strong at Dega and so was Kyle. I would like to see some other teams rise up. Maybe the week off and some momentum can put some wind in Hendrick's sails.


DanB - 4/30/2019 at 10:23 AM

I can't get into Nascar any more. Haven't watched Bristol, Richmond or Talladega and these are my 3 favorite tracks. Glad to see Chase win.

Also don't like Nascar.com fantasy setup it sucks


Sang - 4/30/2019 at 09:58 PM

No, you do .........

Looks like ANOTHER win over DanB......


nebish - 5/13/2019 at 02:29 AM

New leader


Sang - 5/13/2019 at 11:13 PM

Still ahead of DanB ..........


Sang - 5/28/2019 at 05:12 PM

A little better week this week - good thing I was able to update my roster on my phone while I was away .....


nebish - 5/30/2019 at 11:52 PM

I had Eric Jones in 3 out of the 4 leagues I play in. He was out of the race at lap 30, nothing like having no margin of error in a 400 lap race!

Gibbs cars kept blowing right fronts and hitting the wall. KY Busch being the only one that didn't.

I remember some radio communication after Truex hit the wall middle first stage I guess it was and him and Pern were talking about it and Martin said "it's too bad we had a race winning car". And they still won!


Sang - 7/8/2019 at 10:24 PM

Looks like I finally won one.....


nebish - 7/11/2019 at 12:16 AM

It only took a wreck of the top 20 of 24 cars in the race!

Seriously - glad you are paying attention at least a little!


Sang - 9/3/2019 at 04:19 PM

Blind squirrel.............. Won another one ...........

Awesome! Now if we could just work on what happens in between the weeks you win!

So who stayed up til 2 am to see the finish?


Sang - 9/5/2019 at 03:59 AM

Not me ...............
