Join our fantasy NASCAR league!

Of all of the fantasy sports leagues that I've tried, Yahoo!'s fantasy NASCAR takes the least time to manage. I've found Yahoo!'s fantasy league to be more enjoyable than the fantasy leagues on NASCAR's own site. We had a good time last year.

http://racing.fantasysports.yahoo.com/auto/

Please send me a PM to join before the Daytona 500 on February 14.

The Daytona 500 is this coming Sunday. You can still join up until just before the race starts. Really, this is the easiest fantasy sports game to play.

With as many crashes as these hyper-aggressive drivers are causing this year, Daytona is feeling more like Talledega, where the big wreck may take out the best cars at any time.

Plate racing is a sad joke and has been from day 1. Let the engines run unrestricted and use aero to slow them down. Or, just let them run laps at 220+. Fans would love it, though the catch fences might need a few upgrades.

ISTR a Car & Driver article from the late '80s comparing a Porsche 962 to the then-dominant NASCAR Monte Carlo at the Transportation Research Center in Ohio. IIRC, the Monte Carlo (driven by Tim Richmond) lapped at about 240 MPH once fully taped and with the engine in qualifying tune and was slightly faster than the 962.

Porsche should have brought a 917/30 for this match.

Tough luck for a decent number of drivers during those last restarts. I'm glad to see Jr. Finally get a good finish.
