HOW TO PLAY:
Every week you send in 6 driver picks. At the end of that week’s NASCAR Sprint Cup race, the drivers you selected are awarded the same points the NASCAR Sprint Cup drivers get in real life. We add your drivers’ points up, and the highest total wins! If you win that week’s FURCAR points race, you get the FURCAR Trophy Of The Week! If you’re leading the points at the end of the FURCAR season, you’re the FURCAR Cup Champion! You’ll have your name recorded in the annals of FURCAR history, and you may or may not win a prize! You may! Or not. Maybe.
It’s so freakin’ easy!
STEP 1: Come up with a cool name and number for your FURCAR team (example: “Murrburger Racing” #64). Please use the same team name and number every week. ***LIMIT ONE TEAM PER PERSON***
STEP 2: Pick 6 drivers for the upcoming race (2 drivers from each pool) and submit your entry by NOON ET (Eastern Time) the scheduled day of the race (usually Saturday or Sunday). To make it extra easy, we'll be posting three pools numbered (1), (2), and (3) in the FURCAR profile and journal. Just pick two drivers from each pool!
STEP 3: Email us your entries and let's go racin'!
SEND YOUR WEEKLY PICKS TO: email@example.com
Emails MUST include the following information:

Weekly News/Fun Fact (something we can report about your team in our FURCAR race report):
That’s it! 3 steps and you’re ready to race! Once you send in your entries, get up on the wheel and root your drivers on! The higher they finish, the more points you get!
-- ***YOU MUST SUBMIT 6 PICKS FOR EACH RACE*** You can select new drivers each week, or go with a permanent team.
Permanent Teams: You can pick a permanent team to be used each week until the pools change or you update your driver picks. This is a good idea for teams who are not able to submit their weekly driver picks (due to work, vacation, absence, etc) **If you're selecting a permanent team, MAKE SURE you tell us when you submit your 6 driver picks!**
-- ***ENTRIES MUST BE RECEIVED BY NOON (EST) THE SCHEDULED DAY OF THE RACE!!!*** The deadline will NOT change for races postponed for inclement weather. Emails must be stamped BEFORE the deadline or they will NOT be scored. Sprint Cup races are usually held Saturday or Sunday, but may change throughout the season, so stay up to date on the NASCAR.com website.
-- Your FURCAR drivers receive points determined by the NASCAR Sprint Cup points system. A breakdown of the points system can be found here: http://www.nascar.com/news/110128/points-system/index.html Drivers who are ineligible to receive real life NASCAR Sprint Cup points will still be rewarded FURCAR points based on their finishing position and any bonus points earned.
You don’t even have to follow the races to play! The crew at FURCAR will tabulate the points and post the standings!
-- The first FURCAR season will be an abbreviated 11-race season, from the Daytona 500 opener to the Darlington race before the All-Star break. The second season will start with the race at Charlotte and ends with the race at Richmond. The third and final season coincides with NASCAR's Chase For The Cup in Chicago and ends at Homestead.
At the end of each season we’ll crown our Champion, reset the points, and start again! We'll also crown a Grand Champion at the end of the year (for the team with the highest point total from all 36 cup races)!
-- Weekly race ties go to the FURCAR team whose DRIVER PICKS have the most wins, top 5's, top 10's, and/or highest finish. Season points ties among FURCAR teams will go to the FURCAR TEAM who has the most wins, top 5’s, and top 10’s.
-- It’s all about having FUN, so no drama! Anyone causing drama or harassing other FURCAR members will be black flagged and banned forever.
FURCAR pools are generated at the beginning and halfway point of each season, using the current NASCAR Sprint Cup points standings. The pools do NOT readjust each week as the NASCAR season points change.
Check the starting line-up and FURCAR pools (posted in our weekly journals) before each race to see which drivers have qualified for that week's race. You don’t want to pick someone who’s not racing!

"Live from the Kentucky Speedway, this is FRN...the voice of FURCAR."
After the dramatic and heart-stopping finish to the race at Daytona, the FURCAR Furry Cup Series rolled into the Bluegrass State to tackle one of the newer tracks on the circuit, the 1.5-mile Kentucky Speedway, which is parked directly in between Louisville and Cincinnati. The rough track surface and lower banking in comparison to some of its sister tracks is a recipe for great racing, and has made the relatively young track a popular stop for fans and drivers alike. Aside from Dart Wuffy's spectacular crash at the checkered flag of the Coke Zero 400, the big news in the Furry Cup Series was the debut of a new rules package aimed at cutting downforce from the cars and putting more control in the paws of the drivers themselves.
After the first practice session, the drivers were happy with what FURCAR had given them for the most part as they reported they were slipping and sliding all over the place, and nearly spinning out in some. One car - the #6 of Ty Vulpintaur - did in fact make contact with the wall, forcing them to pull out the backup and his time was not counted. And according to the speed charts, it looked like Dart had gotten his bearings back as he led the session, followed by Shockey Rai, Iceroad Lion, Coco Bennington and Jackie Caldoon. And like last weekend at Daytona, the rains would come and wash away qualifying, meaning the grid would be set based on practice speeds...which meant that Dart would be on the pole for the race. It seemed like a nice consolation after what happened last week, but he told our pit reporters that the #88 was really fast right off the truck, and that he liked his chances in the race.
When the green flag came out to start the race, it would be Iceroad Lion getting the jump and leading the first lap after passing Dart out of Turn 4. He would lead up to the competition caution at lap 35, but there would be an incident ten laps before that involving outside polesitter Rai and Jackie Caldoon in Turn 3 where the two came together. Rai would hit the wall and sustain significant damage, while Caldoon would be able to correct it and keep going. After the round of pit stops, it would be the 88 out front, followed by Iceroad, Wildfox, Bennington and Kasey the Husky.
It would be during this green flag run that Dart Wuffy would establish himself as having the dominant car, pulling out to a lead more than a full straightaway on the pack and only interrupted by a debris caution at lap 82. The 88 team would get him out ahead, and he would continue leading until lap 100 when Croco Chilton spun out all by himself exiting the 4th corner. "Just wiped out all by myself," he told the crew before coming down pit road to take on tires and fuel. It would be teammate Coco Bennington coming out ahead of Dart and Iceroad, and the #62 would stay out front for about 20 laps or so. But it wouldn't be long after that the 88 would be back on her tail, and eventually passing her to reclaim the top spot. A caution would come out for E.J. Stripes getting into the wall at lap 138, and Dart would come out ahead of everyone to hold onto the lead.
After the restart, things would get heated as an incident involving Ty Vulpintaur would bring out the caution once again at lap 144. The #6 Ty's Construction Chevy would push up, and the foxtaur would wiggle before eventually losing control. The cars of Jackie Caldoon, Croco Chilton and Draco Potens would also be involved in the accident, with Caldoon clobbering the wall and having to go back to the garage, her race over before the checkered flag. When the green flag came back out, it would be Dart stretching out another good-sized lead...about five seconds before another round of green flag stops would come. However, the #17 car of William Megarda would come back down pit road after a couple more laps, and his crew would take a look at the right front after he complained of a bad vibration. It turned out to be a broken suspension and his car would have to be pushed back behind the wall.
At lap 208, things would get chippy between E.J. Stripes and Croco Chilton. E.J. had been complaining about the brakes on his #7 Team Carolina Chevrolet the entire race, saying he had no pressure and that his paw was going "straight through the floor" whenever he had to slow down. He was able to avoid trouble most of the night...but here he ended up getting into the back of the #15 car going into Turn 3, sending him around and bringing out the yellow flag. An irate Croco ended up going off over the radio in a tirade to his crew laced with generous amounts of profanity; we'd play you the sequence but not with what the crocodile said. Even after Croco's spotter told him Stripes had no brakes, that only sparked him to say that the 7 "shouldn't have been on the (damn) track to begin with." Fortunately, there was still 55 laps to go so that everyone could calm back down again.
But up front, there was no catching Dart Wuffy, save for a brief spell after a debris caution where Coco Bennington came out ahead of the 88 on the final round of pit stops. He would pass Bennington for the lead at lap 238 and never look back, capping off what many thought was the most dominant performance by a Furry Cup driver in 2015. After the checkered flag fell, Coco told our pit reporter that "that 88 was the class of the field tonight. I was just glad to come home in 2nd with them guys breathing down my neck." Those guys would be Iceroad Lion, Wildfox and Mitch Brown, who extended his Season 2 points lead to 64 points over race winner Dart, whose Wolf's Den Racing team has come alive after scaling back to just the one team after secondary driver Redstar Husky's season-ending crash at Charlotte. The logjam starts in 3rd, where Kasey the Husky, Wildfox, Ty Vulpintaur and Eddie T. Wolf are all separated by just 10 points. In regards to the overall championship, there would be a new points leader as Wildfox takes back the top spot from Eddie by just 4 points, with Iceroad holding on to 3rd. They had better not blink, for Dart Wuffy's 3rd victory of the season has put him just 107 points back in 5th, and he can easily leapfrog Vulpintaur to set sail on the three drivers that have held the top spots all year long. Next weekend, the FURCAR Furry Cup Series heads up to New England and the New Hampshire Motor Speedway to have it out on the flat 1-mile track. Who will have the right tricks up their sleeve to win at the Magic Mile? Can Dart Wuffy continue his hot streak and get back to the top? We shall see...
88 - Dart Wuffy (No time, qualifying cancelled due to rain)
Perfect Picks: Logano, Kenseth, Kyle Busch, Hamlin, Stenhouse Jr., Bayne - 236 points
