NASCAR FULL SEASON FANTASY
2013 FULL SEASON RULES
& LEGAL NOTICES
As the Owner of your team, you start with
a $10,000,000 budget that you spend on choosing exactly 8 drivers. See
the DRIVER VALUE LIST for each driver's price. When picking your 8 drivers
you can spend any amount up to and including $10,000,000 for your drivers.
Any team that is entered over the $10,000,000 budget will be invalid.
YOU MUST PICK EXACTLY
8 DRIVERS! NO EXCEPTIONS!
WHEN PICKING A DRIVER YOU GET THE DRIVER NOT THE CAR.
THE CAR NUMBERS WE PICK ARE ONLY FOR DATA ENTRY PURPOSES.
JUST BECAUSE A DRIVER HAS A CAR NUMBER DOES NOT MEAN HE HAS A RIDE
(You will need to do the research to check if he is driving and how many races he plans to race)
The object of the game is to score as
many points as you can with the 8 drivers you selected. Points are scored
based on your driver'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 9, 2013). 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
drivers. What you pick is what you keep for the entire season with an
exception for the NEW P.I.E. Rule listed below. If a driver is no longer
driving for whatever reason, except the P.I.E. Rule reason, you CANNOT
pick up a replacement driver. Keep in mind when you pick a driver,
you get the driver NOT the car. On the entry form, the car number
is used for data entry purposes only. .
P.I.E. Rule -In the event that a driver dies for any reason, each team that has that driver will receive as a replacement for the rest of the season the next lower listed available driver from the entry list. Where available just means that you don't have that driver already on your team. Example: Your team has the 75th driver on the list and he dies. Your team from the next race on would have the 76th driver as a replacement unless he is already on your team, where in that case you would get the 77th driver on the list. Points will start accumulating on the date following the death of the driver. If a driver starts a race and dies in that race you do not get the replacement driver for that race, but would start receiving the points of the replacement driver in the following race.

10. WINNERS LIST. This Game is

rules sets expressly referenced herein. 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. MAIL IN ENTRIES OVER BUDGET. To avoid mail in entries from being
invalid due to driver 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 driver selected
and working upward. We will adjust the 8th driver to whatever driver
allows the team to be within budget. If the 8th driver can't be used
we will use the 7th driver and continue until the team is within budget.
Example: The team selected is $300,000 over budget and the 8th driver
selected is worth $850,000. FANTASYGAMES4U would change the 8th driver
to which ever driver was $550,000 ($850,000 - $300,000) or the next
listed driver that is listed lower than $550,000. If there are multiple
drivers at a specific price that we need to adjust to we will assign
the driver listed at the top of that price group. . (In 2013 for the $390,000 price tag we will use Robbie Gordon, for the $380,000 price tag we will use Tony Raines and for the $370,000 price tag we will use Brian Keselowski followed by Boris Said if needed). It is possible that more than one driver 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 drivers 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 drivers.
