It's NASCAR time again and that means it's time to sign up for the Teraforums fantasy league on Yahoo. We have done this for the last 5 or 6 years and it's so much fun competing against the other members here.

So if you have an interest in Nascar and want to joinhere is the info.

The link didn't point me in the right direction...how do you join? It told me there was an error, and I couldn't sign up!

Also, how many hours of time does this require? I don't have many spare hours anymore.

Do you have an account at Yahoo? You only need about 10 minutes a week.

My questions are: What are you supposed to do? What is the object? What are some tips?

To be honest, I don't really care much for any sports (although I like playing them myself) and haven't heard of any of the drivers on there, ever.

Let's just say I'm not a NASCAR fan. But hey, I'm giving it a shot.

Here is a quick rundown on how to play.

First you choose 2 drivers from the A list, 4 drivers from the B list, and 2 drivers from the C list. From this you get 10 points if one of the drivers gets the pole, 5 points for 2nd, 2 points for 3rd and 1 for 4th.

After qualifying, you choose one of your A list drivers, 2 of your B list and one of the C list for the race. Only these drivers will earn points for the race. These drivers will be awarded points according to where they finish. You also get 10 points if one of your drivers lead a lap, and 10 more if you've picked the driver that leads the most. You can only pick each driver 9 times for the season.

Yes you did really well. I thought I was going to win this week. That is until I realized we were not picking the ones we thought were going to wreck.I don't think I had one driver that actually finished the race.

But don't feel badly...I don't know anything about NASCAR. I just picked using the statistics. So, while I may have done OK for a first time, I probably won't get much better.

In other words, you'll get better scores next time ;) I know from experience that playing something superficially is not the way to excell.

Yeah I don't feel bad, seems like every year I loose the first race and start in the back and I have won first place since 06, except for one year that Elgecko beat me and I came in second.
