Welcome to National Speed Sports News’ Drag Racing Fantasy Sweep, the 10th edition of America’s original NHRA pick ‘em fantasy game that follows the Mello Yello Drag Racing Series, including Top Fuel, Funny Car, Pro Stock and Pro Stock Motorcycles.
For those of you who’ve been with us since 2004, the game is the same. For rookies who have just discovered this game, here’s the scoop.
You have before Noon MST (Arizona) on the Friday of each NHRA National Event weekend to put in your starters and you’ll receive points according to how those drivers — or Pro Stock Motorcycle riders — perform.
You get eight picks for each National and the only rule is that you MUST pick at least one ‘starter’ per class that is running per event. On most weekends all four classes are in action while some National events don’t run Pro Bikes but regardless of the class lineup, you get a total of eight picks to score maximum points for weekly, quarterly and championship prizes.
Starters do not roll over so you must pick a new lineup for each of the 24 NHRA National Events this season. But if you think you might forget some weekend, you can go ahead and plug in starters for each and every round, whenever you choose.
The points system is almost identical to the official NHRA system with the exception of bonus points per qualifying round. Our game doesn’t award those points, although we do award the same points for making a qualifying run, winning a round, each racer’s qualifying position and setting a national record.
NOTE: The game works best with the latest versions of Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox and Google Chrome. Passwords are case-sensitive and scores are usually final by the Tuesday after each NHRA National Event weekend.
So now you know all you need to in order to play the NSSN Drag Racing Fantasy Sweep. We hope you have fun, wish you good luck and thank you for playing our game!
