Fantasy racing, anyone?

By CharlieSpencer ·
Anybody interested in joining an existing NASCAR fantasy racing league? I had a couple of people interested last year, so I thought I'd ask again. For details, visit:

dubya dubya dubya period switchracing period com

and check out the "League Rules" link. Basically, you pick five Sprint Cup drivers each week, but you can only use a driver nine times during the season. Dues are an outrageous $5 for the entire season; no prizes, strictly bragging rights and trash talking.

Drop me a peer message or a reply here. We're open to all race fans, and Jeff Gordon fans too!

Question from a non-follower of NASCAR

by NotSoChiGuy In reply to Fantasy racing, anyone?

Admittedly, I do not follow NASCAR, so if this is an obvious one, please pardon my ignorance.

I've noticed that quite a few people in the NASCAR fan community have a strong disdain/dislike of Jeff Gordon.

Is there a particular reason why?

Again, if that is a 'well-duh' question, I apologize in advance.

Jeff came to NASCAR from Indiana out of California. He came from an open-wheel sprint car background, not a minor league stock car series. While neither of these is unusual these days, in the early '90s he was regarded as an outsider. He had a lot of early success, leading some to complain he didn't 'pay his dues'. Some felt his success came at the expense of other, more established drivers. He picked up a trophy wife, literally; she was a model paid by Winston to look good in Victory Lane. Basically, it's jealousy.

I personally don't dislike him. The son of a gun is both good AND lucky, an unbeatable combination. I just like yanking his fans' chains.

Did you ever hear him on the scanner? He must have Gallo as a sponsorship.

He needs kleenex as a sponser.

The only league play,fantasyplay,bracket that Iscrewed up worse than the Nascar one,I was in was a Final Four Bracket where 3/4 of my teams lost on the first weekend, and was totally out by game three. Should I just send you ten bucks "not to play"? I am just that bad.

Let me refer you to a friend of mine

by CharlieSpencer In reply to ugh

who can 'hook' you up in a fantasy bass fishing league. I'm quite serious.

This is the only fantasy league I participate in. Most other sports have too many variables and too much work for me to regard as entertainment.

luck of the draw

by shasca In reply to Let me refer you to a fri ...

I guess the downfall in the 10 person Nascar fantasy I was in, was that we had to draw cards to see which drivers we got, and couldn't select our own team.

This was the year after Gordon won his first, and looked completely invincibale therefore everyone would have wanted him.

You can probably guess I had a bad hand that day.
