    Well....maybe you dont like the team you have....or maybe one of your favorite drivers has moved up in the standings..
    or maybe you just feel a new team might score better for you.
    Here's how it works:



    You are allowed to use a provisional any time you wish.
    However,you may not use them in back-to-back weeks
    No provisionals are allowed the first race of each 5 week block!!
    To submit a provisional team, simply use the Provisionals link on the main page



    Your entry comes to us as a team submittal, wherein we then change your team for THAT race as a provisional entry.
    NOTE: Your team reverts back to your original team for the following week after your provisional entry
    League Champions and the Commissioners are allowed to use back-to-back provisionals

    with the following exceptions:

    If any driver is replaced,you will be allowed to change that driver, provided that your replacement driver  is ranked within the same driver group.
    If a driver is unable to drive for ANYreason, you will collect a score for the car, regardless of who is driving that car

    You will be selecting 5 drivers for your team each segment
    As NASCAR drops 4 drivers each segment, those drivers will be added to the Group 3 driver group

    on your team are added each week

    The last race at Homestead you will submit a final team 
    Even though it is possible to win the race, the winner of the Chase Game is determined by total Chase points
