Seven participants so far. Last year, we had double that number by season's end.

Folks, if you're feeling the pinch of the economy, this is one form of competition that won't cost you anything.

I think that is what they had last year.....you had two "A list" drivers, but only one of them could be in each race. If the one who was not active gets the pole or something you get the points for his pole, but not for his finish.

13 spec miata teams started the series! For those still interested, it's not too late to get in there. Even though you'd be a little behind, at this stage there is still plenty of time to catch up.

They'd just be a little behind me! I knew the Valley Rat Racing team didn't do too well, but I was surprised that I'm in last place! Thank goodness it's a long season.

Wow. I watched less than 100 laps all year and paid almost no attention to nascar. Other than Talladega the races are boring. Still I enjoyed the competition and while I came in second here I still whooped up in my other league. Next years strategy is to pick a Hendrick car every week.

Sure made NASCAR races more interesting when you had a "vested" interest in certain drivers. I was SO SO lucky the first part of the season that it was enough to hold on for the overall season.

"Fat Guy", aka Tyler Dahl, is 28th overall! Who let this guy in??? Great job!

Anyone know how many total particpants? I see that one of the site experts is now 104,797th after moving up 51,000 spots. So there has to be easily 200,000. 28th overall is staggering - keep up the great picks!

The A and B lists are pretty stacked this year, with lots of solid choices. I don't see myself running out of decent B-listers this season. The key is not shooting yourself in the russian roulette game of choosing the correct C-lister week in and week out.

Great job in crushing the rest of us. How high did you finish overall? Had to be high 90th percentile. It sure makes the Nascar races interesting when you have to pull for some guys and hope others have troubles.

I don't need no stinkin' contest... I already hate Kyle, root against booger picknin' Dale, admire Jimmy, (but root against him), question 24's manhood, look forward to Carl's back flips and watch the rest beat up on one another while I fast forward through 90% of the races to avoid general boredom and having my gramatical sensitivities offended!

Thank god for the DVR FF feature every time I watch a NASCAR race. As much as I enjoy seeing Carl Edwards flip Brad K or Gordon and Burton pulling each others hair out, I still rather have a "team" to root for and also wonder why I didn't "start" certain drivers when I should've.

Thanks Brian. I was 98th percentile and finally broke 10,000 points (first time since I started playing this game 4 years ago). The game does make the races interesting when coupled with DVR/TIVO. I'm already looking forward to next season and wondering how the A-B-C lists will change. We could use more decent choices in the C group fo sho.

This year pretty much sucked for me (as did last year). I tried to manage my drivers and not burn them out too early in the season. My peformance sucked the 1st 1/3, was better the second 2/3 and not bad the last 3rd. The problem was once I was in the hole trying to play it smart, it was that much harder to dig out. at least I didn't finish DFL, but not by much.

It's that time of years fellas!

I've changed the name of the group from years past given the new board.

I took the liberty of choosing the setting where it will drop each participants worst week over the season. I don't remember seeing this option in the past, but I figure that it will help us not get killed because of a bad weekend. I doubt that it will make much of a difference over the 36 weeks.
