SFL500 Questions

Registration for the SFL500 is open from the end of January to the start of the Daytona 500.

Q - When are the SFL500 results posted?

A - In most cases the results are posted within 15 minutes after the race is finished. This first update is Unofficial because SFL results are based on NASCAR race results and NASCAR usually doesn't make their race results official until the following day. The SFL will declare the results official after we are satisfied that NASCAR has published the official results. Once the SFL declares a race official not changes can be made.

Q - How are Trade fees calculated?

A - Trade fees are calculated after each race update is performed. The SFL looks at which drivers are currently on your team for the race that just completed and compares that to the drivers that were on your team for the previous race. The difference found is what the SFL considers to be the number of Driver changes made for that week.

This means you can move a driver on and off your team all day long but you are only charged if you start the next race with a different driver.

Example: You have Dale Earnhardt Jr. on your team in position 1 of Group 2 and a race has just been completed. On Tuesday you replace Dale with Mark Martin. Then on Wednesday you replace Mark Martin with Dale putting Dale back on your team. Then, on Thursday you replace Dale with Jeff Gordon. Then on Friday you replace Jeff Gordon with Dale putting Dale back on your team again. Because the final result of all these changes is that no driver has changed on your team, you will not be charged for a trade.

Q - Will I be charged if I swap drivers in the same group?

A - This is an example where you take a driver on position 1 of Group 1 and move him to position 2 of group 1. There is no technical advantage in doing this as the same driver is still on your team. This move does not reflect a driver change and therefore there is no charge.
