The Iwanna NASCAR Racing Challenge goes all season long — 37 weekends total. Registration is easy and the challenge is really simple: Pick the 10 drivers you think will finish 1st through 10th for each race, and your top 15 races count as your overall score. The top point total at the end of the season wins a $1500 Amazon gift card.

Don’t know who to pick from race to race? Jimmie Johnson? Juan Pablo Montoya? Tiger Woods? … yeah, one of those is a golfer. Good catch! But making picks in the Iwanna fantasy game is really easier than that. You get a list of qualified racers to pick from — and you can change your mind even up to the last minute. The league will even notify you if one of your picks drops out of the race, so you can update your list! Using a handicapping site like can help refine your picks.

BTW, if you need it, you can learn how to talk smack with your friends here. And if you want to see racing crashes, check out this site.
