How scoring works in Fantasy Auto Racing
This article details when you'll receive points for drives and links the Maximum Starts article.
Each driver can receive a maximum of 90 Fantasy points during each race. The top 43 finishers receive points, with the winning driver getting the maximum 90, and other drivers receiving 2 fewer points for every spot they finish behind the leader (e.g., the second-place driver gets 88 points, the third-place driver gets 86).
You receive the total points earned by all active drivers on your team provided that they haven't already been active in nine races (see the Maximum Starts section for more information).
Bonus points are awarded to each of the drivers with the four best starting positions after qualifying. The pole winner (top qualifier) receives 10 bonus points, the second receives 5, the third receives 3, and the fourth receives 1. These points are awarded to any bench drivers as well as active drivers on your team for the current race.
Note: Because qualifying for the Daytona 500 is broken up over two days, qualifying bonus points are not awarded for the Daytona 500.
An additional 10 bonus points are awarded to each driver who leads at least one lap during a race. The driver leading the most laps during a race will also earn another 10 bonus points. To earn these bonus points for your Fantasy team, a driver must be on your team and active during the race.
If a race is officially canceled, no Fantasy team will receive any points for that race. All other scoring rules stay the same. If qualifying or a race is delayed or postponed, no points will be awarded until the event (qualifying or the race) is completed. If qualifying is canceled, the starting grid is determined by practice speeds. If practice was also canceled, then the starting grid is determined by Sprint Cup points standings. Either way, no qualifying bonus points will be awarded.
Please note: We only credit the driver with points, and not the vehicle. You must have the driver in your starting lineup in order to accrue points.
