TRI Fantasy Racing League Rules & Points System

Contenders had the chance to pick 10 NASCAR Cup Series teams at the start of the 2022 season to enter this NASCAR Fantasy Racing League.

PICKING YOUR FANTASY TEAMS:

Team picks can be submitted starting on January 1st, 2022, until February 1st, 2022. Once the team picks’ deadline has closed, no other contenders can enter the league, nor can they change their team picks at any time throughout the season.

If a contender who signed up in the Fantasy Racing League did not submit all their picks, picked a team twice, or picked a team that announced they are closing before February 1st, 2022, a race team pick will be chosen for that league contender through a random generator.

Out of the 250 contenders in the fantasy league for 2022, no contenders picked the same 10 drivers in the same order.

There will be four exhibition races we will receive points in for the 2022 season.

FANTASY PLAYOFFS:

There will be a total of 50 contenders that will enter into the Fantasy Racing League playoffs.  Once the playoffs start, no contenders will not be able to enter the playoffs.

Two ways contenders can make the Fantasy Racing League playoffs is by either getting a win in the first 30 races of the regular Cup Series season or finishing in the top 50 in points without a race win.

The playoffs start on September 4th at Darlington Raceway and concludes ​​
after 10 races at Phoenix Raceway on November 6th.

We will have three playoff rounds in the Fantasy Racing League.  

The first round will be three races (Darlington, Kansas, and Bristol).  After these three races, the bottom 20 playoff contenders without a win in this playoff round will be eliminated from the playoffs.

The second round will be three races (Texas, Talladega, and Charlotte Roval).  After these three races, the bottom 15 playoff contenders without a win in this playoff round will be eliminated from the playoffs.

The third round will be three races (Las Vegas, Homestead-Miami, Martinsville).  After these three races, the bottom 10 playoff contenders without a win in this playoff round will be eliminated from the playoffs.

The final round of the playoffs will be the championship race at Phoenix Raceway where 5 contenders will compete for the Fantasy Racing League Championship.

Playoff contender points will be reset at the start of the playoffs, and after each round with 5-point increments based on how they finished in the regular season, or how they finished in the previous playoff round.

The final round of the playoffs (final race of the season) will not receive the 5-point increments. All contenders will start at 0 points, and the best contender out of the 5 contenders in that race will the Championship.

Once a contender is eliminated from the playoffs, they will move back down to the non-playoff contenders and be positioned in the standings based on how many points they have earned so far in 2022.

TIE-BREAKER:

A tiebreaker will be used only for the winner of the race in the Fantasy Racing League. The tiebreaker will be broken by the first pick of each contender’s highest finishing result, in that race. If the league contenders have the same pick we will go to the second pick and so forth until the tie is broken.
