2021 IndyCar FanZone Fantasy League Rules
2021 Salary Cap: $1,600,000. You must choose five drivers. Picks must be made before qualifying is scheduled to start for an event. The qualifying times used come from indycar.com. The Fantasy League commissioner will not change the lock date/time in the event actual qualifying is rained out.
You must choose your five drivers before each race, as points values for each driver can and will change after each event based on driver performance. You may change as many drivers in your lineup as you wish, at any time, up until the values are locked. Once picks have locked, the drivers you have chosen when IndyCar qualifying starts will be your selections for the race.
If you do not make picks for a week, your picks will carry over IF the current values for those five drivers are below $1.6 million. (Ex. You pick five drivers for St. Pete. You go on vacation and forget to make picks for Long Beach because Sweden is lovely this time of year. If your five drivers from St. Pete have Long Beach values below the threshold of $1.6 million, you'll get points for Long Beach. If your five drivers from St. Pete have Long Beach values above $1.6 million, you'll get no points for Long Beach.
The determination of a driver's value is determined by their performance during the previous season, past history at a track (or type of tracks), the team situation they find themselves in, and their performance during the current season. In short, it's subjective though we'll try to be as objective as we can.
Drivers will earn points for your team in accordance with the Indy Racing League points system. Any bonuses (or penalties) earned by your driver will also be applied to your total.
If there is a tie at the end of the season, the number of events "won" by a team will be the tiebreaker. If there is still a tie, the number of points scored in the last race of the season will be the tiebreaker.
Available selections will reflect the IndyCar entry list for a particular event. If you select a driver who misses an event for any reason (ex. injury in qualifying accident), you will receive no points for that driver.
All rules subject to amendment at the discretion of the IndyCar FanZone Fantasy League commissioner. IndyCar FanZone is not responsible for any system problems (ours or yours) that may prevent team registration/updates. Please verify the selections you make are indeed the ones that show up under your team. Decisions of the the IndyCar FanZone Fantasy League commissioner are final and may not be appealed.
