All New Fantasy Live Game For 2018 NASCAR Season Launched


NASCAR Fantasy Live: No more salary caps and no more complicated points system, also swap divers during the race

If you play NASCAR Fantasy Live, the 2018 season is going to be a lot easier to navigate.

When you sign up for your account on, you can select your roster for the 2018 Daytona as soon as the entry list is announced.

Players can select 5 starting drivers and a “garage” driver, which they can swap out for any of your starters.

Just make sure to swap your garage driver before the final stage ends.

And picks don’t carry over week to week, so visit often to choose new picks for the next race.


Only starting drivers will count towards your final points. Points are awarded in the following fashion:

Drivers running in the top 10 during Stage 1 and 2 earn 10 points for the stage winner, 9 points for second, 8 points for third, and so on.

Players can also score bonus points by correctly picking the pole winner (5 points), stage winners (10 points), winning manufacturer and race winning driver (30 points)

NASCAR Fantasy Live will run throughout the 26-week regular season and culminate with the Brickyard 400 on September 9, 2018.

If you are the overall points leader after the final race you will win $10,000.

“In NASCAR, every lap matters,” said Tim Clark, managing director, NASCAR Digital Media.

“The new fantasy game reflects the lap-by-lap intensity of modern NASCAR racing by giving fans the opportunity to strategize and adjust their driver lineups in real-time during races”
