Deadline For Submitting Your Bracket – The deadline for submitting your bracket is when the green flag waves at Chicagoland which is the first race in the Chase. I will note there’s no need to wait until the last minute. After you submit your bracket I’ll contact you within 24 hours letting you know I received it.
Submitting Your Bracket – To submit your bracket use this FORM. Members may only SUBMIT ONE BRACKET and in the case more than one is submitted only the first bracket will be scored.
Chase Challenge Scoring
The scoring for the game is rather straight forward as all bracket games are. I’m sure as you know the Chase is comprised of four segments. They are composed of the Challenger Round (first 3 races), Contender Round (next 3 races), Eliminator Round (next three races) and the Championship Round (Homestead).
In the Challenger Round which concludes at Dover you receive 1 point for each driver who you accurately predict moves onto the next round. There is a maximum of 12 points you can score in this round. (Pick 12 drivers who advance)
In the Contender Round which concludes at Talladega you receive 3 points for each driver who you accurately predict moves onto the next round. There is a maximum of 24 points you can score in this round. (Pick 8 drivers who advance)
In the Eliminator Round which concludes at Phoenix you receive 8 points for each driver who you accurately predict moves onto the final round. There is a maximum of 32 points you can score in this round. (Pick 4 drivers who advance)
In the Championship Round on the contact form you number where you think the drivers will finish 1-2-3-4 in the standings. If you correctly predict the champion in spot #1 you will score 18 points. If you correctly predict who will finish in 2nd you score 8 points. If you correctly predict who will finish in 3rd you score 4 points. If you correctly predict who will finish in 4th you score 2 points. I will stress in order to score points in this round the driver MUST FINISH in the FINAL POINT STANDINGS POSITION where you predict.
The last rule I would like to mention is that ifantasyrace.com reserves the right to change rules at anytime. The only circumstance this will be used is if NASCAR changes the rules which will affect the competitive nature of the game (example : putting 13 drivers into the Chase midweek like last year).
