  1. ATTENTION: http/https Bug Fix! Most of us have been experiencing problems staying logged in as we navigate the site. That is simply the result of links varying between http and https, which each require different logons. To resolve we are going to force https starting sometime Wednesday.

    OK, I'm in!..... :eek:

    However, seems to me we really need a few more entrants - Come on guys, there's gotta be more Nascar fans out there surely!..... [Or is everyone too "embarrassed" on a Ferrari board to admit it? ;)]

    How'd you know that?..... Seriously, I just made my initial picks (to "The Taxicabs!). But, everyone elses picks are hidden - Is that an optional setting?

    Gotta go study the rules now......

    Should be fun,
    Cheers,
    Ian

    All you need to know...stay beyond me and I will show you the way to the finish line! ;) :D

    No. Other player's picks are shown after the selection deadline for the specific race (e.g. Fantasy Deadline: Feb 26 10:25am PST) but you can't tell who they are starting until after the deadline to decide the starters, which is usually an hour or so before start of the race IIRC.

    Absolutely, the more the merrier the better the banter! :D

    Oh, I'll be beyond you alright! ;)

    Seems we're getting there - We were just 5 when I joined, we're up to 8 now - Which is a start at least......

    'Tis all about the "banter" - Nothing apart from bragging rights at stake! Don't be shy, sign up!

    Incidentally, how many did we have last year? Who won it?

    Cheers,
    Ian

    Reminder: the winner will be who gets the most points from all races through the entire season, and we are not dropping the worst race from each segment.
    Unlike last season when we didn't think about this, I want to make sure this is on record before the first race.

    My non-FChat buddy that played last year, aka Capital City Cajuns, said he doesn't have time this year. :rolleyes: :(

    Duly noted Mr. Commish.

    For those unfamiliar with the game, you can select your lineups weeks in advance, in case you think you may be busy or out of town.
    Also, if you forget to set your lineup it will just use the prior race lineup, until your driver runs out of starts, then you get zero for that position until you swap in a new one. Each driver gets nine starts for the season.

    I wish we could get about 20 folks to join in.

    Agreed. I wonder if it would help if we spread the word across other forums that folks are on and make it a bit less FChat-centric.

    That said, I've registered for a couple other forums in the past but I don't frequent them at all so I'm no help.

    Still time to get folks involved for the later seasons/segments.

    Like her shoes that is subject to change. :D

    No, I won't kick anyone out for anything.
    Yes, I know you are kidding.

    Only 9 entrants as of now. Sad, for as many folks we have here.
    We all appreciate those of you that have signed up.
