This is the second year I’ve made a NASCAR Fantasy League spreadsheet available for download. I’ve created Excel templates for many other games and sports, including one for horseshoes, but this is our second NASCAR spreadsheet! This NASCAR fantasy game is based on Total Driver Points according to NASCAR’S scoring system. In order for your drivers to score they must be running for Sprint Cup Points. Drivers may run in more than one NASCAR division but can only score points in one division.
Here's how to play: At the beginning of the year (first race is Daytona on February 14th) participants choose ten race car drivers/ These will be their 10 drivers for the entire year - no changing after the entry deadline. All players also submit the three drivers that they think will place 1st, 2nd, and 3rd in the NASCAR standings at the end of the year. They don’t need to have these drivers in their picks, just who they think is going to finish on top. This is used as a tie-breaker.
The fantasy league manager manually enters each player’s picks into the spreadsheet once at the beginning of the year. They keep the same drivers all year long. After each race, the manager then goes to ESPN.com and enters the amount of points that each driver earned during the race into that driver’s column. The spreadsheet then automatically adds and ranks each player according to their driver’s scores. I used many of the same formulas found in the leaderboard of my NCAA Bowl Prediction Pool sheet. Can currently handle up to one hundred drivers and one hundred participants without needing to modify a single formula.
There are two options to download the 2015 NASCAR Fantasy League manager:
Download Option 1:
Simply click the link below which will take you to the box.com, where the file is hosted. Next, click on the “Download” link in the upper right hand corner. That’s it! No email address is required.
Download option 2:File is hosted on Gumroad. Click "I Want this" then submit your email address to download the spreadsheet. Your email address will ONLY be used to alert you if I upload a new file.
Sometimes users find small bugs or offer suggestions for improvement and so I update the spreadsheet. I recommend downloading through download link 2 so you will be automatically notified when an update is made, whether for this year’s spreadsheet or next. But if you don’t feel comfortable submitting your email address I understand, which is why download option 1 is available.I’ve received comments from many readers informing me they like to use these types of templates to raise money for charities, which is so awesome! In the future. I will improve the spreadsheet by automating the entry process and come up with a way to update the driver scores easier. This is just the second version of the template and I don’t follow NASCAR myself so I’m sure it can be improved in some areas. Please let me know if you have any suggestions!
