(TOLEDO, Ohio – March 12, 2015) – Fans of the ARCA Racing Series presented by Menards now have another exciting reason to tune in to every race at arcaracing.com.
Starting with this weekend’s ARCA Mobile 200 on Alabama’s Gulf Coast, arcaracing.com debuts its own exclusive member interactive game, the ARCA Racing Series Fantasy League. The game is free for all arcaracing.com members. Members will choose five drivers (their “Team”) plus their favorite manufacturer and earn points based on race finish positions and special awards earned on track by their selected drivers. Prizes will be awarded for each ARCA Racing Series Fantasy League event.
“We are pleased to roll-out this enhancement to arcaracing.com which will provide a fun and interactive opportunity for our fans to get engaged with the ARCA Racing Series, and compete against their friends.” said ARCA President Ron Drager.
Members pick their Team of drivers based on each events race entry list which is updated daily on arcaracing.com as the race team entries are received by ARCA. The member’s Team of drivers must be selected prior to the start of Menards Pole Qualifying presented by Ansell for the respective event.
Fantasy game players can use driver biographies and previous race results which are all available on arcaracing.com for reference when building their Team of drivers for each race. Because the Teams are not locked in until the start of qualifying, members playing ARCA Racing Series Fantasy League will want to tune-in to arcaracing.com during event practice sessions to check on your Team’s speeds and make any last minute Team adjustments.
Points will be awarded based on the finish position of each driver on your Team. For example, if a member chooses Grant Enfinger as one of their five drivers and Enfinger wins the race, the member’s Team earns 40 points. If Grant finishes second, the member’s Team earns 39 points and this continues through 40th finishing position earning the Team 1 point. Drivers earning special awards such as the Menards Pole Award presented by Ansell, the Valvoline Lap Leader Award and the CGS Imaging Hard Charger Award will earn their Team five bonus points for each of these special awards. In addition to selecting their five Team drivers, the arcaracing.com member playing the Fantasy game will have the opportunity to make their selection for the winning manufacturer of that event. Each member selecting the winning manufacturer will earn an additional five bonus points for that event. The ARCA Racing Series Fantasy League player’s overall score for an event will be the total points earned by all 5 drivers on their Team, plus any bonus points earned by their Team of drivers and manufacturer.
