Overview 

Welcome to your Fantrax INDYCAR League! The purpose of this game is to put together a team of 4 INDYCAR drivers, and then manage your team throughout the season based on who you think will perform the best, all while keeping your starters at or below the $100 salary cap. You will compete against all other owners in the contest for weekly and season-long prizes. It's that simple! If at any time you have any questions that are not addressed in our rules or FAQ pages, please don't hesitate to contact us using our Support/Feedback Form (hamburger menu at the extreme top right of any screen) and you will be responded to promptly.

Entry 

A maximum of four (4) entries per Fantrax username/account are permitted. You may be in only one (1) Public League as part of that four, meaning you can join one Public League and up to three (3) Private leagues, or zero (0) Public leagues and up to four Private Leagues. While you are eligible to win prizes whether your league is Public or Private, only your top-scoring team from among your entries will be eligible to win any Round (race) prize or season-long prize. You may not win multiple prizes for any race or any multiple season-long Grand prizes. Please note that Private leagues with only one (1) team entered will be deleted. See Restrictions in Official Game Rules below.

Leagues

Upon entry, you will be placed in a league with others in the contest. There will be multiple leagues. Keep in mind the contest awards prizes to the Overall winners only, thus your league placement does not matter regarding prizes.

Once you have joined your league, you will be able to see the names of the other teams in it, but will not be able to view their rosters until after the deadline for the first race. You will compete against all participants in the contest prizes (see the Prizes section for more info). You can access your league home page at any time by clicking on MY LEAGUES near the top left of the screen and clicking on the league name. 

Entry Fee

Entry into this contest is Free.


Forming Your Initial Team

You must form your initial team using the Pick My Drivers screen, to which you will see a link in the top menu once you have accessed your league. This screen allows you to add drivers from the player pool onto your team and remove drivers from your team. As you make these changes, you will see a running total of your team salary at the top right. After submitting your changes, you will be able to review all those changes before confirming them. This screen will be renamed Adjust My Roster after the contest begins. Anyone joining the contest after the Race 1 deadline will select their drivers using the Adjust My Roster screen (link in top menu). There is no limit to the number of times you can leave and go back to these screens, as long as you form and submit your full team before each race deadline.

NOTE: If you have multiple entries, you must set your Team for each individual entry. Rosters do not copy from one team to another. Rosters can be the same or different for each.

This is a Duplicate Player contest, meaning any driver can be owned by any number of teams. You will be shown on the Pick My Drivers/Adjust My Roster screen which positions you still need to fill on your team, as well as what your current team salary is. If you fail to form a legal team by the deadline (4 drivers under the Salary Cap), the four (4) lowest salary drivers who earn points for the Race/Round will be assigned by the system to your team.

Managing Your Team

Roster Setup

Your team must have exactly 4 Active drivers (also known as Starters) for each race. If you attempt a claim/drop  that would result in your team not meeting the roster requirements above, that transaction will be denied by the system. Please refer to the Claiming Drivers To Your Roster section for more info. 
Salary Cap
All teams have a $100 salary cap throughout the entire contest, and at no time are you allowed to go over that cap. If you attempt a claim/drop  that would result in your team exceeding the salary cap, that transaction will be denied by the system. Please refer to the Claiming Drivers To Your Roster section for more info.

Driver Salaries
Driver salaries are set before registration opens, and are updated weekly after each race for the upcoming race. A driver may gain value (increased salary) or lose value (decreased salary) over the course of the season. Other drivers not listed for Race/Round 1 may be added for future races.
 

Lineup Periods & Deadlines

You have up until 5 minutes before the start of the race to set your lineup for that race. Once that deadline has passed, lineups will be locked. There will be a built-in lock time of up until Thursday evening prior to the upcoming race before you can go in and set your Drivers for the next race with the new set of salaries for those drivers.
  • For the official deadline for the upcoming race, see the message displayed at the top of your league home page.
  • Any race delays or postponements due to weather or any other reason will not extend the deadline for any race. The deadline may, however, be moved to an earlier time if any race has it's official start time moved up. You will be notified of the upcoming deadline for each race on your league homepage.
  • If a race is postponed until the next day or the day after that, the original deadline to set your lineup still applies. 
  • The final scheduled race day of this contest is on Sunday, September 22, 2019. Should the final race (or any other race) be postponed or rescheduled for any reason, it will count for this contest as long as it is run no later than the Wednesday following the scheduled final race of the season. 
Claiming Drivers To Your Roster
After the deadline and the lock time for any race has passed, use the Adjust My Roster screen to claim (add) drivers to your team. Clcik the green + circle beside the driver's name to place him on your roster for the upcoming race. Be sure to click SUBMIT after making your 4 driver claims, which slides up from bottom right of the screen.

Note: If you have multiple entries, you must set your Team for each individual entry for each race. Rosters do not copy from one team to another. Rosters can be the same or different for each.

Note for Detroit Races: After setting your roster for the first Detroit race, YOU MUST RETURN to set your roster for the second Detroit race. Your picks will not carry over to Race 2. Rosters will be locked for approximately 3 hours after the Saturday race begins. Once unlocked, you will have until the Sunday race deadline to enter your roster for the second Detroit race. Driver salaries will be the same for both races.

  • Double points for each race finishing position will be awarded at two races – the Indianapolis 500® Mile Race and the season finale at Monterey.
  • An entrant-initiated engine change-out will result in a loss of 10 driver points.
  • Also, entrant and driver points will be awarded for Indianapolis 500 qualifying based on final qualifying results as follows:The fastest qualifying entrant and driver (pole sitter) will receive 9 points, second fastest will receive 8 points and points awarded will decrease by one-point increments down to ninth fastest (1 point).
  • The Race Finish Points category will automatically include all scoring from above. Therefore, specific categories such as Most Laps Led and Leading at least one lap will not show separate scoring in Live Scoring or Standings.

(a) Game Play: During each Round, Players may select drivers from a list provided at the Site (“Available Drivers”) and the average racing speed for all drivers competing in the applicable race (“Average Speed”). Each Available Driver will be assigned a value (“Game Point Value”), which Game Point Value is based on that Available Driver’s value relative to the value of the other Available Drivers. To play, at any time prior to the Round Entry Deadline (as defined below), Player will log-in to the Site and fully complete one (1) entry for such Round (“Round Entry”) by (i) selecting a “team” of four (4) drivers from among the Available Drivers (a “Round Team”), in each case trying to select the Available Drivers for such Round Team that will earn the highest number of official points in that Round’s race, and (ii) predicting the Average Speed for that Round’s race. Each Round Team must consist of four (4) Available Drivers; provided that the aggregate Game Point Value for a Player’s Round Team (the “Team Point Total”) may not exceed one hundred dollars ($100). All Game Point Value assignments are made by Sponsor in its sole discretion, independent of any third-party advice, recommendation or influence.

 

All Round Entries must be submitted electronically up until the official scheduled start time of the applicable Round race (as reflected on the Site subject to any delays, suspensions, rescheduling and/or cancellations) (“Round Entry Deadline”). If a Player fails to submit a Round Entry before the Round Entry Deadline, such Player will be assigned an auto-pick for such Round consisting of the four (4) lowest salary drivers who earn points for the Round. The clock on Sponsor’s database server shall be the official timekeeper for this Game. Any Round Entries containing a Team Point Total exceeding one hundred dollars ($100) will be disqualified.Round Entries may be revised and re-submitted at any time prior to the applicable Round Entry Deadline. Lost, late, illegible, incomplete or misdirected Round Entries are not eligible. Players will earn the number of points that are equal to the total number of official points earned by, and credited to, the drivers on Player’s Round Team in each Round (according to the official published results as of the end of the applicable race) (“Round Score”). For purposes of these Official Rules, the cumulative sum of all of a Player’s Round Scores, as computed following the end of any given Round, shall be deemed such Player’s “Total Game Score.

 

(b) Determining Winners:Subject to these Official Rules, the individual Player with the highest Round Score upon the conclusion of each Round, will be the Round Winner (“First PlaceRound Winner”), and nine (9) individual Players with the next-highest Round Scores in descending order immediately following the First Place Round Winner, upon the conclusion of each Round, will be the additional Round Winners (i.e., second place through tenth place). The highest Total Game Score upon the conclusion of the Game, as set forth in these Official Rules, will be the First Place Grand Prize Winner (“First Place Grand Prize Winner”), subject to verification and the nine (9) individual Players with the next highest Total Game Scores in descending order immediately following the First Place Grand Prize Winner, upon the conclusion of the Game, will be the additional Grand Prize Winners (i.e., second place through tenth place). Tie-Breaking Procedure: (a) In the event of a tie between Players, the applicable Winner will be that Player whose Average Speed prediction is closest to the actualaverage speed of the race occurring during the Round in which such tied Players submitted a valid entry; and (b) If such Players remain tied after the Average Speed tie-breaking procedure (as would be the case with identical entries), the applicable Winner will be that Player demonstrating superior knowledge and confidence by submitting his/her Round Entry at the earliest time, as between the tied Players and based on the actual documented time of Player’s entry as reflected in the database server.
