NASCAR Fantasy Scoring on Draftkings:
DraftKings will be using NASCAR’s official statistics, available in real time, to score its fantasy games.
Place Differential = +/- 1 PTs, Fastest Laps = +0.5 PTs, Laps Led = +0.25 PTs, Pass Differential = +/- 0.25 PTs, Finishing Position Scoring
1st: 46 PTs, 2nd: 42 PTs, 3rd: 41 PTs, 4th: 40 PTs, 5th: 39 PTs , etc.
Position scoring decreases as driver finish position gets further behind, with 43rd place getting 1 PT.
Place Differential = (Starting Position) – (Finishing Position)
Example: If a driver starts in 20th position and finishes in 10th place then his Place Differential is +10.
A driver’s starting position is based solely on his qualifying position. If a driver’s starting position changes between qualifying and the start of the race for any reason (backup car, driver change, etc.), the qualifying position will be used to calculate place differential.
Pass Differential = Total number of passes minus times passed
Drivers can only pass or be passed when they are on track during green flag laps. Drivers’ number of passes and number of times passed will not increase when drivers are in the pits or in the garage.
Points for Finishing Position and Place Differential will be updated in real-time during the race. Drivers will gain points as they move up in position and lose points as they drop in position.
DraftKings has set up a full line-up of NASCAR (look for NAS on the contest lobby) contests with formats and buy-ins perfect for any and every fantasy NASCAR player.
