Alright everyone, I have put together a fantasy contest that is welcome to everyone. I know we had talked about putting together some real cash fantasy games previously but I wanted to create some free contests that everyone can join with some small prizes for extra entertainment. If this goes well, we will try to continue with these types of contest a few times per month and possibly switch up the formats just to keep it interesting. I know the overall prize is rather small but will increase the prizes as the site grows.

This Week's Game:

Quicken Loans 400 Fantasy Contest

Winning Prize: $25 free play balance at Sportbet.com

Rules:

No entry fee required. However, please note everyone must have a Sportbet.com account to enter. If you do not have an account with SportBet, please sign-up through the link below. No deposit is required. However, you must have an account in order to receive your prize. For those that are not aware, Sportbet is part of the 5Dimes corporation. They share the same great NASCAR odds and even have a more appealing interface. Entrants must post their roster by 12:00pm (EST) Sunday in this thread and private message me their Sportbet.com account number to be considered officially entered. Thanks to Sportbet for sponsoring this contest.

The format of the contest will be very simple. There will be 3 groups of drivers shown below.

Total points earned as a team wins the contest. (Scoring guide shown below)

Great so I can use 5dimes login for sportbet.

I had heard of propbet but not sportbet.

This should be fun. I'll throw my hat in the mix later.

Thanks for all you guys do.

Yes sorry Optional I should have clarified that you can login through Sportbet with your 5Dimes account. For anyone that does not already have an account with either book, they will have to sign-up.

Sorry for the confusion if it caused any.

Thanks

I don't think we will have the same roster with 3 field bets but I am putting everyone's roster on a spreadsheet. If there are any picks with the same roster, I will ask for a tie break driver between those entries. One reason I wanted the cut off time to be 12:00pm tomorrow a good hour before the race to ensure everything like that was squared away.
