NASCAR FULL SEASON FANTASY
2017 FULL SEASON RULES
& LEGAL NOTICES
Remember you now pick the CAR not the driver
As the Owner of your team, you start with a $10,000,000 budget that you spend on choosing exactly 8 NASCAR cars. See the CAR VALUE LIST for each car's price. When picking your 8 cars you can spend any amount up to and including $10,000,000 for your cars. Any team that is entered over the $10,000,000 budget will be invalid.
YOU MUST PICK EXACTLY 8 CARS! NO EXCEPTIONS!
WHEN PICKING A CAR YOU GET THE CAR NOT THE DRIVER.
THE DRIVER NAMES WE PICK ARE ONLY FOR DATA ENTRY PURPOSES.
JUST BECAUSE A CAR HAS A DRIVER LISTED DOES NOT MEAN THAT HE IS THE ONLY DRIVER FOR THAT CAR. THE CAR WILL SCORE WHOEVER DRIVES THAT CAR.
(You will need to do the research to check who is driving that car and how many races the car plans to race)
The object of the game is to score as
many points as you can with the 8 cars you selected. Points are scored
based on your car's performance. (SEE
THE OFFICIAL SCORING SYSTEM) Bonus points are also awarded for team
performance.You accumulate points each week and at the end of the season
(SEE 36 WEEK SCHEDULE), the team that accumulates the most points finishes first, and so on for the top 100+ positions. (The number of positions will be determined by the number of entries we receive. The number of the positions will be posted on the website no later than March 7, 2017). All prizes will be awarded based on your point performance. In addition to year end prizes we will offer weekly prizes to the top 5 scores for each week. Prizes for that are listed under WEEKLY WINNERS. As a special BONUS we will offer 2 tickets to a race of the winner's choice, a value of $500, to the team that scores the most points in weeks 3-7. This will be referred to as the WILD MARCH CHALLENGE.
NO WEEKLY TRANSACTIONS - Your teams automatically runs for you each week. There will be NO TRADING or RELEASING cars. What you pick is what you keep for the entire season. Keep in mind when you pick a car,
you get the car NOT the driver. On the entry form, the driver name
is used for data entry purposes only.

Game entrants agree to abide by the terms of the Official Rules and by the decisions of the judges and the Commissioner, which are final on all matters pertaining to this Game. FANTASYGAMES 4 U; LLC, LLC reserves the right to change the Official Rules at any time, in its sole discretion.
11. TIE BREAKERS In the event of a tie, Fantasygames 4 U; LLC will break the tie as follows. For overall and weekly prizes, if two or more tie for a position, the tie will not be broken, instead we will sum the prizes and divide by the number of teams involved in the tie and distribute the prize evenly. Example: Three teams tie for 6th. We will sum up the prize money for 6th, 7th & 8th, divide by three and distribute that amount to all three teams that were involved in the tie. The same holds true for weekly winners. In the WILD MARCH CHALLENGE, since we only have one Prize, we will break the tie in this fashion. If two or more teams are tied after the Five March races that comprise the WILD MARCH CHALLENGE, we will break the tie in the following manner in the following week. Each team that is tied will e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org a set of three drivers for the following weeks race. Based on our scoring system, the team that chooses the three drivers that accumulate the most points in that week will be awarded the prize. If two teams have the same drivers we will continue to select more drivers until there is a difference. The inputs must be made by 12:00 Noon E.S.T., the day of the race being used. All teams involved in the tie will be notified by mail of the tie and the need for additional info. Each involved party will be notified of what drivers each team has to keep all informed.
12. SEVERABILITY. In the event that any provision of the Official Rules is found invalid or unenforceable pursuant to judicial decree or decision, the remainder of the Official Rules shall remain valid and enforceable according to its terms. The parties intend that the provisions of the Official Rules be enforced to the fullest extent permitted by applicable law. Accordingly, the parties agree that if any provisions are deemed not enforceable, they shall be deemed modified to the extent necessary to make them enforceable.
13. GOVERNING LAW. The Game shall be governed by the laws of the State of New York and the venue of any dispute arising out of the Game or the operation of this Web site shall be in a court of competent subject matter jurisdiction located in Onondaga County, New York.
14. ASSIGNMENT, SALE, TRANSFER OF RIGHTS
PROHIBITED. All rights and privileges granted by participation in the Game are exclusive to the person who signed the entry form. Assignment, sale, or transfer of any rights or privileges are prohibited and will not be recognized by Fantasy Games 4 U, LLC.
15. To avoid mail in entries from being invalid due to car selections which exceed the $10,000,000 budget, FANTASYGAMES4U reserves the right and will adjust teams to get within the budget. Adjustments will be made starting with the 8th car selected and working upward. We will adjust the 8th car to whatever car allows the team to be within budget. If the 8th car can't be used we will use the 7th car and continue until the team is within budget. Example: The team selected is $300,000 over budget and the 8th car selected is worth $850,000. FANTASYGAMES4U would change the 8th car to which ever car was $550,000 ($850,000 - $300,000) or the next listed car that is listed lower than $550,000. If there are multiple cars at a specific price that we need to adjust to we will assign the car listed at the top of that price group. (In 2017 for the $390,000 price tag we will use car 46, for the $380,000 price tag we will use car 15 and for the $370,000 price tag we will use car 29 followed by car 16, if needed). It is possible that more than one car may need to be adjusted. This allows participants to have a team racing for them despite the fact that an error was detected. For this reason all mail in entries should list cars in the order of selection to avoid possibly losing a favorite due to an error. The most popular reasons for team being over budget are math errors and copying the wrong price for the cars.
BY PARTICIPATING OR ENTERING IN FANTASYGAMES 4 U STOCK CAR FANTASY RACING LEAGUE, ALL PARTICIPANTS ACKNOWLEDGE THAT THEY HAVE READ AND AGREE TO ABIDE BY THE OFFICIAL RULES AND LEGAL NOTICES, AND FURTHER AGREE TO ABIDE BY THE DECISIONS OF FANTASYGAMES 4 U, LLC, WHICH ARE FINAL ON ALL MATTERS PERTAINING TO THE GAME.
