Fantasy NASCAR game: Post-Vegas, pre-Bristol update

Only eight people had Brad Keselowski winning at Las Vegas last week, which made putting together the results a whole lot easier this week!

Here are the eight who got it right. You’ll notice three of them picked up their second win of the year already, which means we only added five more winners to the Fantasy Chase:

_Carlton **
ClintLJones **
n08fear **
JoeGwilt *
realaortiz08 *
Race5599 *
AngieF530 *
bobfredchuck *

Fantasy NASCAR game: Post-Phoenix, Pre-Las Vegas update

OK, all of you smarty pants are starting to get seriously annoying.

This game was supposed to be hard! You could only use ONE driver per week, ONE time each in the regular season. And yet, after just two races, a whopping 118 people (out of 326 total players) are already in the Fantasy Chase.

That’s more than one-third of all players. I can assure you the other 208 of us are not happy with those who have made it in so quickly.

At Phoenix, 86 people correctly predicted Kevin Harvick would win. Here is a list of those people, who I now hate for making this look so easy:

_Carlton *
_Chouinard *
A_Bit_Sideways *

You’ll notice that some people have two stars next to their name. Why? Because they already have two wins this season!!!! GAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHhhhhh. How are you people doing this???

Just to be clear, the Ultimate Mad Geniuses who are 2-for-2 on the year are:

Adam_Huth **

Fantasy NASCAR game: Post-Daytona 500, pre-Phoenix update

Well, that was easy.

A whopping 45 people are already in our Fantasy Chase after just one week, thanks to their selection of Dale Earnhardt Jr. to win the Daytona 500.

Those 45 geniuses can still get bonus points to use in the Chase if they win again, but they don’t have to truly fret over their picks until September.

Anyway, on to Phoenix. Here are all your picks for the upcoming race. The favorites are Kevin Harvick (86 picks) and Carl Edwards (84 picks).

Good luck to all!

Note: A star by someone’s name is the equivalent of a win sticker. That represents how many wins the person has this season.

A NASCAR social media experiment with Instagram


Social media often asks people to CLICK HERE! or VOTE! or REPLY! It’s a call to action, whether asking a question (“What do you think about this?”) or just showing off good seats at a concert (“Check out my picture!”).

People retweet and favorite and like and share — but they’re often prompted to do so.

So what happens when content is presented without any call to action? I tried a small social media experiment last week on my Instagram account just for fun (certainly not scientific in any way).

During the NASCAR Sprint Media Tour, I took virtually the same pictures over and over again — a different driver each time, but in the same location — and posted them with a generic caption. In order to avoid a fan base trying to influence the results, I didn’t mention I planned to track the amount of “likes” for each Instagram photo.

The photos were spread out over several days, so I let them sit on the account for a week before writing down the final totals. Here they are:

  1. Kasey Kahne — 173 likes
  2. Dale Earnhardt Jr. — 168
  3. Kyle Larson — 136
  4. Clint Bowyer — 135
  5. Tony Stewart — 132
  6. Denny Hamlin — 127
  7. Brian Vickers — 125
  8. Jeff Gordon — 114
  9. Jamie McMurray — 111
  10. Brad Keselowski — 110
  11. Carl Edwards — 107
  12. Jimmie Johnson — 106
  13. Kevin Harvick — 98
  14. Ryan Newman — 94
  15. Kurt Busch — 93
  16. Joey Logano — 92
  17. Austin Dillon — 89
  18. Danica Patrick — 88
  19. Matt Kenseth — 81
  20. Ricky Stenhouse Jr. — 79
  21. Kyle Busch — 78
  22. Greg Biffle — 69
  23. Paul Menard — 64
  24. Michael Waltrip — 63

I’m certainly not suggesting this list reflects the current popularity of Sprint Cup Series drivers, but I was surprised to see some drivers so high on the list (check out Kyle Larson in third!) and others lower than expected (Matt Kenseth 19th?).

Any theories as to why the list shook out this way?




Fantasy NASCAR game: Let’s play!

I have an idea for a Fantasy NASCAR game and I want to create a new kind of league. It’s free (obviously) and we can all play together for the ultimate bragging rights (or a prize that I’ll come up with later).

Here’s how it works. Please read these rules carefully:

1. You pick ONE driver for each of the first 26 races — but you can only pick each driver ONE time. Your picks have to be submitted before the season starts (see the form and e-mail address below). So if you want to pick Jimmie Johnson for the Daytona 500, that’s fine…but you can’t use him again. If you use a driver twice, your entry is disqualified.

2. If your driver WINS the race on the week you have picked him (or her), you advance to the Fantasy Chase. That’s the only way to make the Fantasy Chase. There are no points during the regular season. If you go 26 weeks and your pick never wins on a given week, you are eliminated. Sorry. If your picks win multiple times during the season, you get three points toward the Fantasy Chase for each win.

3. Once the Chase starts, we’ll see how many people made it and the remaining people get to start over with their picks. Before Chicagoland, you submit ONE driver for each of the 10 weeks — and you can only use each driver once. The driver can be a Chase or non-Chase driver. You get your driver’s points for that race, and if you win any week, you automatically advance to the next round. The catch is there will be eliminations after every three races, just like in the real Chase. The number of people eliminated depends on how many people make the Fantasy Chase (if 100 people make it, 25 will go home after each round).

4. For the finale, there’s a chance multiple people could have the same driver. If that’s the case, the remaining contenders will be asked to submit a second-, third-, fourth- and fifth-place driver for Homestead as the tiebreaker.

UPDATE: The entry deadline has now passed. I received more than 300 entries and am now compiling them. Thanks to those who entered!

Ashton Kutcher wrong about state of Twitter

Ashton Kutcher, one of the original high-profile Twitter users, says Twitter has been ruined in part by “media companies” who started “pitching crap.”

It’s also been screwed up, he said, by Twitter itself.

“I think retweeting hurt Twitter the most,” Kutcher told a wireless conference Thursday in Las Vegas, according to CNBC. “It created a ton of noise in the system that took away from some of the value.”

Dude. What the heck is he talking about???

Twitter shouldn’t have instituted the RT button and the media ruined the overall experience? Really? Since when?

Kutcher of all people should know Twitter is what you make it. You follow the people you want to follow and unfollow the ones you don’t.

If someone’s feed becomes too commercial, stop following that person. Likewise, if someone RTs too often, press unfollow. And if you don’t want to offend the person by completely bailing, use an app like Tweetbot, which can mute people for a given amount of time (I do this often).

Other than that, I don’t understand where he’s coming from.

Oh, wait a second. Could it be that Kutcher screwed up the Twitter experience for himself?

In October 2011, he tweeted this in the height of the Penn State child sex abuse allegations:

How do you fire Jo Pa? #insult #noclass as a hawkeye fan I find it in poor taste

Um…

The ensuing backlash caused him to not only backtrack and apologize, but decide to “stop tweeting until I find a way to properly manage this feed.” Now he uses a management team to control “the quality of (the feed’s) content,”¬†ostensibly because he doesn’t trust himself to not tweet things that would seem to appear unsympathetic to molested children.

Seriously, though, is it really that hard? We all say things we regret, but it’s fairly easy to apologize and move on. People’s memories aren’t that long.

Anyway, it’s no wonder Kutcher now says: “Twitter’s experience has changed for me pretty drastically. It used to be sort of a personalized experience for me, a really personal experience that I could share.”

Geez, maybe it’s because he has a management team approving his tweets now? I’m not sure, but I think that could be it.

I’ve been on Twitter for more than four years and, for the most part, I think it’s only gotten better. Sure, everyone has to deal with the occasional troll, annoying requests for RTs (“It’s my birthday!”) and some over-commercialized tweets. But I certainly don’t think it’s a sign Twitter is losing what made it special.

The point is this: Ashton, please don’t go crap on Twitter just because your personal experience has changed. That doesn’t mean it’s like that for everyone, and most of us still enjoy it quite a bit.
