HOW TO PLAY

1
CREATE AN ENTRY
After registering with the site, create your entry for FOX Fantasy Auto Racing. Select your favorite driver to join the official group for fans of that driver. Specify your email preferences for the game.

If you've received a group invitation via email, clicking the link in the email will also start the process to create an entry. You may have to supply a password for the group depending on its privacy settings. The owner of the group can provide the password.

2
PLAY IN A GROUP
After you've created an entry, decide whether to join an existing group or create your own.

Groups consist of both official "Fans of" groups and user-created groups. A group can either be public or private. If the group is private a password can be set for the group. Private groups allow you to track basic fees. Inviting friends, family and co-workers is easy and can be done through email, Facebook and Twitter.

3
SET YOUR TEAM
For each race of the season, you can specify five drivers to earn you points for the race. One driver is designated the "Captain" and is worth twice the points.

The season is broken into segments of 13, 13 and 10 races. The same driver can be used a maximum of four times per segment. This rule is important as it should play a role in building your roster strategy.

Drivers earn points based on race finish and can earn bonus points for leading a lap, leading the most laps and finishing ahead of their qualifying position.

VIEW STANDINGS
Tracking your team's performance can be done in a variety of ways:

The Weekly Standings show how your team did for a specific race. The Group Scorecard shows how your team and drivers fared for a specific race.

The Segment Standings show how your team is doing for an individual segment of the season. The Group Leaderboard breaks down performance within the group per segment.

The Overall Standings wrap up each segment into a season total. Do you have what it takes to be the overall leader for the entire season?

Review the Prizes to see what's at stake.

ROSTER SELECTION

  • You may choose up to five (5) drivers for each race of the season.
  • The first driver slot is the team captain. The team captain's points are worth double, so choose your captain wisely.
  • A driver may only be used four (4) times each race segment. If used more than 4 times during a segment, the driver will not earn any points for your team.
  • Your roster carries over from one race to the next. You may not edit your roster for a future race until the current week's race begins.
  • To add or swap a driver, click the "Edit Pick" button below the driver slot within your roster.

SCORING

  • A driver earns points based on his finish in the race. See the scoring chart below.
  • A driver will also earn one (1) bonus point if he leads at least one lap in the race. If more than one driver tie for the lead in a lap, each of those drivers will earn one bonus point.
  • The driver that leads the most laps in a race will earn one (1) bonus point. If more than one driver ties for the most laps led, each of those drivers will earn one bonus point.
  • A driver will earn one (1) point per position improved between qualifying position and finishing position. Note that starting position is not the same as qualifying position.
