The Chase is on! With top 3 separated by a whopping 18 points the title is up for grabs! A couple of rough weeks with my drivers seemingly sponsored by 'Target' has left me a challenging 135 out of the lead and Fossil another 162 from there.

And when NASCAR gets finished investigating Childress's team orders, they're gonna take up Opal spinning out to help Dave! :laughing:<_<

Seven to go, top 2 are inching away in a nose to tail draft...

Hawaiian Honu with a couple of monster weeks leads Vegas Gamblers by a slim 22 points. Remember #3 is 109 off the lead with Skidmarks hitting the wall hard, 182 back. Still mathematical for Fossil Fuel, but at 524 back, the well's about tapped out...

A week off from updates, but the action has been hot 'n heavy!

Two MONSTER weekly gains rocketed Vegas Gamblers from 92 points back to 60 in front!

Showing Remember #3 that 151 points isn't totally out of the question.....

At 252 back, the fork is making a mark if not piercing my skin....pretty much done.

Will cool heads prevail on the 1/2 mile paperclip or will a bunch of chasers leave chewing on Tums & washing 'em down with a Goody's cocktail for fast relief?

White flag next time by...... two car breakaway with Vegas Gamblers out front by 89 points and Hawaiian Hondu looking for a bobble to take advantage of.

Unsolicited commentary on NASCAR- just doesn't seem right tradition-wise or make sense ratings/excitement-wise (vs NCAAF & NFL) to have a home stretch of Texas/Arizona/Homestead. can you say "Rockingham"?!

Then again, I'm someone who (other than the circumstances requiring it) got a kick out of wondering if they'd need snow tires for the 2001 finale on Thanksgiving Friday in Loudon).

Good luck to VG in the next couple of weeks! Can I make up ground, like Smoke needs to do?

Pull them belts tight! Buckle up those chin straps! Honu picks up 63 points to trail by a whole 26 points!!!!

Might be worth me looking at how (if) Yahoo breaks ties...

 

Here's the rules, I'll let you guys do the math on your own if you're that curious. Was kind of surprised 1st break wasn't week wins(easiest to figure?. Not even considered! Well, they're the ones with the Super Computers and highly paid Geeks!

Never imagined either the group or the season coming down to tiebreakers :blink: !

Hey VG, what did the casinos have for odds on that?

Posted link above to Yahoo's standings and SEASON winner declaration for our league. The first page you get, listing Honu(Mauison) is for PLAYOFF SEGMENT winner.

Soooooo.... despite Hawaiian Honu finishing in Championship fashion winning 5 of 10 playoff weeks, winning a league best (by an impressive 4 wins over nearest competitors,winning 2 of 3 season segments..... the winner under the Yahell tie breaker system is.....

 

VEGAS GAMBLERS!!!!!

 

Another fun season, a true nailbiter, and (THANK YOU ALL!)great sportsmanship shown by all.

Congrats to VG! I wonder what the odds were of the Chase plus our League both ending up in a tie? Probably a billion to one! Weird Yahoo tiebreaker system but it is what it is. I had a lot of fun and can't wait till next season, which is only three months away! That's a lot better than waiting six months, like baseball and football. Thanks again to rickctroop13 for running the league!

Just signed up. I've played Fantasy Football and Baseball in the past, but NASCAR is new to me so there will be a big learning curve for myself. Good luck to everyone!

Learning curve. Yeah, right! :lol:

 

Well, if you look back, my first week score of 164 was my lowest scoring week the entire season. I really had no idea what I was doing that first week. So it goes to show you, you have one really bad week in scoring, and it can cost you the championship. It's definitely different than other fantasy sports where all you have to do is make the playoffs, then each playoff week is important. With this league, every week counts the entire season.

was gonna try to reset with 'Lucky Dog' to see what would have looked like dropping worst week in each segment but guess it's locked now... oh well...

Yes, I have recieved two coins so far. I am at work and will post up later. Life is really hectic right now. Heck, I still owe Mauison a coin from Fantasy Baseball. (I have not forgotten Dave, I will make up for this long delay).

 

Aloha VG, I was thinking we can just call it even since you owe me a coin for Baseball and I owe you a coin for Racing?

VG, (if you're still looking here) please keep us posted as your booty comes in!

 

Sorry for the really late reply.

 

So far I received two Caching Crow and Opalsns coin. (one silver and one copper)

 

As per an agreement between myself and Mauison there will be no coin, due to the fact that I still owed him a coin for him winning the Baseball Fantasy league.
