Good to have you on board, Kevin. Are you ready to be beaten? Just kidding.
Originally posted by CajunManI'm thinking about doing this, I'm guessing all the info is on the site on how this works? As for picks, I would say just pick all 4 Hendrick drivers. Should be a fun season.
That sounds totally fanboy-ish Just kidding.
The way it works: every week, you pick eight drivers from NASCAR's roster, and make a team from it for the week: when raceday approaches, you pick four of those drivers to make your team, dependant on their placement on the starting grid or whatever.
There are three groupings of drivers:
You pick two from your better drivers, (Stewart, Gordon, Ky. Busch, etc.) and then four from your midrange drivers (Harvick, Montoya, Ku. Busch, etc.) and then two from your lesser knowns (Said, Carpentier, etc.)
You can only pick each driver a total of nine times for the season. Afterwards, you gotta get someone else.
As a fantasy sport league, the NASCAR league is quite low maintenance. You can pick your drivers, and if you forget to make changes to your roster, you won't get penalized - in fact, you can make you picks and come back in nine weeks and pick some new drivers. That's good if you're busy during the week and don't have time to switch things up.
We'll be back right after order has been restored here in the Omni Center.

There was a phenomenal article/interview with Schmeling in Sports Illustrated a few years back. Wish I could remember the issue or the writer, but I have a sneaking suspicion it was probably William Nack.
