NASCAR is rolling out a new and unique fantasy game. 32 of the top drivers will be selected and seeded in a tournament style head to head single elimination bracket (think March Madness). Fans will then be able to choose the winners of each matchup. The winning driver of the head to head race (i.e. Dale Jr. goes against Mark Martin, Dale finishes in 7th place in his race, while Martin finishes in 15th, Martin is then eliminated and Dale Jr. moves on to the second round) then advances to compete another day. The competition kicks off at Pocono on August 7th and runs for 3 weeks until the “fastest four” are left and compete for the Championship at the August 27th race at Bristol.
Here is your chance to prove how well you know NASCAR racing. What strategy will you use? Will you go with your favorite drivers or research driver stats and past performance to determine the winner? Either way, you’ll have fun and you may even win a brand new truck and $1,000,000!
Don’t keep this a secret either! Anyone can play and you don’t even need to be a DIRECTV subscriber. Link this post to your friends or “Like” it on your Facebook page and get them involved too. Who knows, if you don’t win but your friend does, maybe you’ll get a ride in their new truck?
The fan with the most accurate picks will win a brand new truck from the manufacturer of the winning driver. (i.e. if Dale Jr. wins the contest, the fan who “wins” gets a Chevy Truck since Dale drives a Chevy). A perfect bracket results in the chance to win $1,000,000. Drivers will be competing on behalf of their favorite charities with a total of $400,000 being awarded to help great causes. The contest starts on August 7th so be sure to get your entries in soon!
