Eric finished last among the three of us in last year’s Fantasy NASCAR. He starts off 2021 with the lead now, following putting two of his seven drivers in the top five of the final finishing order of last Sunday’s Daytona 500. Factor in Ross Chastain in seventh and he had a much better start to this season than last.
CJ had a good start as well. He also had two drivers finish in the top five with Austin Dillon in third and Kevin Harvick in fourth. Greg meanwhile starts off with a big deficit with four of his seven drivers finishing with a DNF. Eric and CJ had four of the top five in the final finishing order.
Can CJ make up any ground this weekend?
Eric and CJ have Chase Elliott and Martin Truex Jr. The duo have combined to win eight of the last nine points paying races including taking two of the top three sports here last August. Eric also has Denny Hamlin who was runner-up last August and had one of the cars to beat in the Clash.
Greg does have both Ryan Blaney and Kyle Busch though. Blaney, won the lone points paying race that Elliott and Truex didn’t win over the last nine race span and was 1 turn away from winning the Clash last Tuesday night too. Busch though, did win.

RULES (Write this out with your own take)
There will be 3 teams (1 per owner).
Each owner will select 7 drivers per team (21 drivers).
There are 3 groups of drivers to choose from.
Each owner selected 2 drivers from Group 1 (Top 9) for a total of 6 drivers.
Once 6 drivers were taken from Group 1, the 3 remaining drivers in that pool were then added to Group 2 (12 total).
Each owner then selected 3 drivers from Group 2 for a total of 9 drivers.
Once 9 drivers were taken from Group 2, the 2 remaining drivers were added to Group 3 (11 total).
They completed the draft process by selecting 2 drivers each from Group 3 for a grand total of 7 drivers for each owner.
The draft seeding was based on last year’s standings with the third-place owner (Eric) picking first, the second-place owner (CJ) picking second and the first-place owner (Greg) picking last. Snake Draft formula
There are no starters or bench.
Results from each driver, in every race, will count for the entire season.
If a driver gets injured or sick, a substitute driver from the pool of remaining drivers who were not selected on draft day will be allowed to be taken to replace the injured driver for at least one race. The free agency rules will apply starting with the injured driver owner.
Free agent drivers: Each Monday, the owner with the least number of points gets first crack at picking up a free agent driver. If by Tuesday, that owner fails to decide to pick up a new driver, the next owner in line gets to choose, followed by the points leader on Wednesday.
NOTE: Once an owner makes a driver change, the next owner up in the standings can immediately make a move and so on.
Trades can be executed until the playoffs begin and will be approved by the third party as fair.
The deadline for free agency is the last race of the regular season (Coke Zero Sugar 400) unless a driver gets injured or sick.
