It's way, way early. I've come from that far back.Im getting my butt whooped in this league
That's what makes the strategy challenging. The first three races with the old points are just so veterans can knock the rust off and new players can get used to the system. The game really starts when the driver groups start changing weekly.That's crazy.
My dude, that's exactly why I held off Kyle, Harvick and Truex. It's literally a no brainer to use Kyle this week, but I can use him without worrying because it's my first use. Might use all three in fact this week, depending how Kez looks.It's way, way early. I've come from that far back.

Look at Kyle in C this week. Are you really going to pick someone else in that bunch? That's why I said management of A isn't the key. It's managing which drivers are in each group each week, with an eye toward whether they'll move up or down. Bubba can't compete against most drivers currently in B; wait until he slides back to C to think about him. Stuff like that.
Speaking for the long-term players, thanks. That was our goal 20 years ago.this league is challenging.
Well, that's good to hear haha. Gives me hope as I was doing good before I missed this one.This league has been won before by players who've missed races. One year a guy missed TWO and came within a couple of dozen points when one of his drivers wrecked at Homestead.
Loose Nutz came in second last year after missing a race. I beat him by less than 40 points. That's not much; most weekend winners score around 160, and 220 or so is the max.Well, that's good to hear haha. Gives me hope as I was doing good before I missed this one.
We're pretty lenient about the deadline. As long as the green hasn't dropped, I'll accept a team by e-mail, text, PM here, etc. Once the green waves, THAT'S the real lock.Wow, second place is looking very competitive now
For the record, my dad did his lineup six minutes before lock, lol.
I realize some of us are old school but e-mail has long been the communications method for the league. We started as a work place league, and many of our players are active on social media.I hate I had forgot about this when it first started back up. I’m not sure I got a chance now but I’ll keep trying.
I missed maybe one or two races..
I hope everyone appreciate your efforts. It looks like you put a lot of work into make this league work.Race 11 - Martinsville 1
