2019 Fantasy Racing Game

2019 Fantasy Racing Game

edited June 23 in NHRA

With the CompetitionPlus Forum being down for the lengthy period that it was , some questioned whether our Fantasy Drag Racing Private League would continue.

To the delight of our players, FMFL.net, and fans worldwide 🤣 we most certainly have continued. And as usual it has been a hard fought season.

I will post results, standings and commentary from every round of the 2019 season by tomorrow....

    Unconventional picks worked out well for SlicksChick. She was the surprising winner in the opening round of the 2019 season, carding 621 points.

    And with the notable exception of Stealth Racing, Round 1 went very wrong for 2018’s top finishers. Perhaps the challenges that the Wildhorse track has shown will bring them redemption in Round 2. I hope you’ve all picked well….

    Finally, as mentioned previously, once the Forum is back up, all of this data will be posted there.

    In Round 2 we congratulate SuzukiRay for picking well and scoring a high of 557 for the round.

    It looks like we are starting off as we did last season, with early round upsets playing a major role in the game. Meaning relatively low scores and picks that were once considered “safe” not carrying the day, affecting our heavy hitters…...

    Here are the standings….

    SF1972 found redemption in Round 3 and took high score with 645 points. The standings shuffled every position as well, with Stealth Racing impressed to take the top spot. Well done to you both.

    Round 4 had Suzukiray exert himself with a very solid 639 points. As usual in this stage of the season there was also quite a bit of position swapping, with z28camaro taking his turn at the top of the standings. Well done to you both.

    Players,

    First, I hope you all had a nice holiday weekend.

    Second, I bring you standings updates for completed rounds 4 and 5, along with an early reminder that we have Round 6 coming this weekend, with the 4-Wide Nationals from Charlotte, NC. This round features three professional classes, TF, FC and PSM. Picks due by 2 PM ET this Friday 4/26.

    Be well, and pick well….

    With picks limited to the two Fuel classes, Round 5 promised and delivered interesting results.

    Racer12306 was out top scorer with a high for the season score (so far) of 664. His solid picks also placed him at the top of standings as well. Nicely done!

    Good morning Players….

    Round 6, and the first quarter for the 2019 season is in the books. A lot of stout picks in this round, but was Shaky Dave laying waste to the rest of the field with an awesome 678 points. Great job Dave!

    Our standings showed little movement this round which was a surprise. The only position to change hands was the number 1 spot where suzukiray swapped positions with racer12306 to lead the sheet.

    Round 7, the Southern Nationals is next, and it comes this weekend. Consider this an early reminder to get your picks in by 2 PM ET this Friday 5/3.

    Pick well and good luck!

    Good Morning CompetitionPlus Forum Private League Players,

    Round 7 was completed in spectacular fashion, with z28camaro earning not only the round win with an astounding 691 points, but also vaulting from third to first in our standings. His picks for this round also earned him 3rd overall among all players in the game, and is our high score to date in this season.

    The tour now takes a weekend off, with picks for Round 6 from Virginia Motorsports Park due on Friday morning May 17.

    Have a great week and pick well….

    Good Morning CompetitionPlus Forum Fantasy Drag Racing League,

    Well that was one helluva high scoring round….

    All I can say is you guys are animals, and the biggest one of all in Round 8 was SuzukiRay who put together big picks and a Big Score with 781 points. Ray snatched back 1st place in our standings, earned 4th in the overall game for the round, and just as in the last several rounds, produced a new high score for the season. Awesome….

    The big numbers you produced also shuffled our top 5, and placed Stealth Racing in the Top Ten in the overall round standings. And how often does a mid-600 point score produce a bottom half position in the overall round standings? Not often…..

    Round 9 will be coming from Route 66 Raceway with picks due on Friday May 31 at 12 Noon ET. Look me up if you’ll Be There….

    Players,

    Round 9 proved to be a tough week for most of us in the CompetitionPlus Private League, and in fact it was a relatively low scoring round across the board. I’ll go out on a limb and attribute this to the very strong entry lists at the Route 66 Nationals. More entrants meant more opportunities for an early round exit for “safe picks”.

    Those upsets gave us a tie in Round 9, with z28camaro and SlicksChick , sharing the top with 555 points. Suzukiray retains the top spot in the standings with 5238 points.

    Important reminder!

    Your Topeka Round 10 picks are due today, Friday 6/7 by 2PM ET.

    This round is minus Pro Stock and Pro Stock Motorcycle, and has only has Top Fuel and Funny Car in pro competition.

    Not only that but those entry lists are extremely thin with both below 16 cars. See here: http://www.nhraeventreg.com/ListEventStatus.asp

    Those that have their picks in may want to review those entry lists and make adjustments to their picks before the deadline.

    As always, pick well and be well.

  • WillyWilly Administrator

    Happy Monday Players,

    As predicted in my last update, with only two pro categories and the thin fields in them produced generally higher scoring here in Round 10.

    Racer12306 earned Round 10 with a score of 621 points, which has tightened up standings points spread and position, where z28camaro goes back to Number 1 with a slim lead over Suzukiray.

    Some housekeeping….

    1. Make sure your filter accepts this email address:
    2. Round 11 from Bristol is this coming weekend. Your picks are due this Friday at 12 PM ET.
    3. Watch for some important news within the next two weeks.

    Good luck, and pick well.

    Players….

    Round 11 from Bristol Dragway is now in the books and it was a momentous one.

    Stealth Racing put a hammerlock on the field with a high score of 639. Not only was his score tops in the CompetitionPlus Private League, but he placed #1 in the overall game for the round. Over the 11 season history of this private league, this has only been achieved on three prior occasions. Obviously very difficult to do, so give it up for Bobby!

    There wasn’t much movement in the standings this round. Z28camaro remains on the top, but the spread between positions continues to tighten. I predict several changes in position following round 12.

    Speaking of Round 12. It is this weekend from Norwalk and your picks are due this Friday by 2 PM ET.

    This Round will feature all 4 Mello Yello pro classes, and with entry lists that show numbers beyond 16 in each, qualifying actually will be meaningful.

    Thanks for keeping up with this through email.

    I'm so disappointed in myself for missing the picks this week. Was just one of those weeks and I'm sure I've screwed my season because of it.

  • WillyWilly Administrator

    Good Morning Players,

    With the completion of Round 12 we are now half way through the season.

    There were some surprises in the Norwalk round, and none more surprising than Willy Racing coming out on top with 617 points.

    Plenty of position changes this round as well, but the top two remain where they were.

    Before we get to the standings…..

    Willy, Glad to be back on the forum. Thanks for all you do

  • I screwed the pooch got so busy working forgot to pick. If only we had a Countdown lol

  • And that’s one week after winning the overall game smh

  • z28camaroz28camaro Senior Member

    maybe we should reset at countdown time and have co champs

  • racer12306racer12306 Senior Member
  • WillyWilly Administrator

    As someone that has forgotten to pick a round himself, I hate to see anyone not get their picks in.

    As for a countdown, besides it not being fair to go that direction halfway through the season, the game itself does not and would present a scorekeeping challenge to me.....
