    PROVISIONALS

    Each team may use provisional entries during the season  What is a provisional you ask, and how do I use it in the league??
    Well....maybe you dont like the team you have....or maybe one of your favorite drivers has moved up in the standings..
    or maybe you just feel a new team might score better for you.
    Here's how it works:



    You are allowed to use a provisional any time you wish. However,you may not use them in back-to-back weeks
    No provisionals are allowed the first race of each 6 week block!!
    To submit a provisional team, simply use the Provisionals link on the main page

    Your entry comes to us as a team submittal, wherein we then change your team for THAT race as a provisional entry.
    NOTE: Your team reverts back to your original team for the following week after your provisional entry i

    CHASE FOR THE CHAMPIONSHIP SCORING RULES

    With NASCAR changing the format of the Chase race , we will  use the following format
    These last 10 races of the season you will be submitting a new team of drivers
    every 3rd race.
    Every 3 races NASCAR will eliminate 4 drivers from the Chase field
    Race 1-3  Select 4 drivers from the field of 16
    Race 4-6  Select 4 drivers from the field of 12
    Race 7-9  Select 4 drivers from the field of 8

    For the final race at Homestead you will select your final 4 drivers
    IN THE ORDER YOU THINK THEY WILL FINISH
    Since every team will have the same drivers, there will be a tie-breaker
     used to break the tie among all the teams which is the average score from your previous 9 Chase races
    If you successfully choose the correct finish order of the 4 drivers, you receive a 60 point bonus
