ARLINGTON, VA, February 18, 2011 /24-7PressRelease/ -- The 2011 fantasy racing season is gearing up as the Daytona 500 race officially starts the chase for the Sprint Cup this Sunday at 1PM EST. With that, Fantazzle Fantasy Sports Games is happy to announce the launch of several new fantasy racing games to support the 2011 NASCAR Sprint Cup series and add extra excitement for fantasy race fans everywhere. Now available at Fantazzle.com:
Fantasy Racing Salary Cap Game - pick five drivers to form your fantasy racing team staying under a $1M salary cap.
Salary Cap Fantasy Racing Game (unlimited) - pick five drivers from predetermined groups of drivers to create your fantasy racing team with no salary cap.
Fantasy Racing Pickem Game - pick your fantasy team by picking the best driver from ten or more fantasy driver matchups.
Also new for the 2011 NASCAR season at Fantazzle is the ability to play fantasy racing games in different durations. Fantazzle is known for providing weekly and daily fantasy sports games so weekly fantasy racing games will be available as usual. Zachary Fluewelling, Director of Games and Customer Relations, says "Fantasy racing is such a perfect sport for Fantazzle given one of the biggest issues heard about fantasy racing is the season being too long. Fantazzle games are the perfect solution since registration for weekly fantasy racing games is available any week during the 2011 NASCAR season."
In addition to weekly fantasy racing games, Fantazzle for the first time will be providing fantasy racing games in 12 race segment game durations (three per season) and season long games that use every scheduled 2011 NASCAR race for the Sprint Cup to determine a winner at the end. If a season long game seems to be in direct conflict with the "NASCAR season being too long" issue and the very core of what Fantazzle represents as a daily and weekly fantasy game company, it is agrees the founder and CEO, Ryan Parr, but with good reason. "With Fanball.com, who provided season long fantasy racing games through FantasyCup.com closing and other big fantasy game company operators expressing a lack of interest to provide fantasy racing games, I feel Fantazzle can not only become the best weekly fantasy racing game company in the industry, but in time, the best fantasy racing game company period."
Racing fans are known to be fiercely loyal which is demonstrated through the support they show for their favorite drivers, crews, cars, and their car's sponsor and maker. Parr believes that loyalty will continue towards the fantasy racing game company they choose to use. "Fantazzle's commitment is a clear message to racing fans everywhere. If racing fans demonstrate a fraction of their loyalty and commitment to Fantazzle as their fantasy racing game company, Fantazzle in return will give back that loyalty and commitment ten-fold and be there not only in 2011, but every year after while continuing to develop and provide the best fantasy racing games available anywhere online. Fantazzle is a huge NASCAR fan and obviously fantasy game fan as well, so we not only have a business interest, but a personal interest to see the two succeed and we believe we can help do that by raising the level of interest in playing fantasy racing games."
As described, the fantasy racing game space has been dealing with adversity lately. In 2010, two of the top three fantasy game companies shut down their main fantasy NASCAR games. CBS closed their pickem fantasy racing game while ESPN shut down its fantasy racing commissioner game. Fantasy Sports Business (FSB), a fantasy industry blog, was able to confirm that the decisions were business related and a matter of realigning resources for more popular sports. Later that year, SportingNews.com, who provided several fantasy racing games decided to stop offering fantasy games so it could focus solely on fantasy content. Finally, in 2011 fantasy racing game options was dealt another blow when Fanball and its fantasy racing site, FantasyCup.com, decided to close its doors. In just two years, four of the top providers of fantasy racing games for one reason or another are no longer offering racing games.
To help displaced fantasy racing fans find a home, Fantazzle recently created a special promotion for ex-Fanball.com customers and given the turnover with fantasy racing in particular, Fantazzle has agreed to offer this promotion to users of the other fantasy sport game companies who no longer offer fantasy racing games. The fantasy promotion states that any former customer of these sites who register to play fantasy games at Fantazzle.com will receive a welcome bonus of 2,500 FanStock. FanStock is Fantazzle's fantasy promotional point system similar to frequent flyer miles. Instead of earning free flights, players at Fantazzle can use FanStock to play free fantasy games. More information on the promotion can be found at Fantazzle.com.
With time running out until the start of the racing season, Fantazzle hopes that customers with no fantasy racing league or fantasy racing site to play at will learn about Fantazzle.com. Fantazzle's fantasy racing salary cap game could take the place of FantasyCup.com's salary cap game and CBSSports.com offered a pick'em type game that could be similar to the Fantasy Racing Pick'em game Fantazzle has. If not the start, there is still hope given Fantazzle's weekly game format allows registration during any week or race of the 2011 NASCAR season. Most fantasy sport games close registration when the season begins. Not so with Fantazzle due to their weekly fantasy games and new segment game formats which creates three registration periods throughout the race season.
For NASCAR fans out there who have yet to play a The fantasy racing game or a fantasy sports game in general, Fantazzle has them covered as well. Simply register at Fantazzle.com and players can play the free fantasy racing game on the site with cash prizes worth over $100. The free racing game is a 12 race segment game duration and there are no strings attached or small print disclaimers meaning it is completely free and is giving out great prizes. Fantazzle will be offering weekly prizes as well as end-of-segment prizes totaling over $100 in cash! In addition to the ex-Fanball customer promotion and the The free fantasy racing game offered, Fantazzle is also in the midst of a promotional period called FanStock February. If you have some friends who you think would like to play this game, you can earn even more free promotion cash. Players who refer their friends can receive up to $15 for each referral. That money can be used to play fantasy games that require an entry fee to instead play for free. Fantasy racing fan or not, this is a great time to register and start receiving these great bonuses and promotions, earning free cash, and entering free fantasy games. Also, if you are a blogger, writer, fantasy racing or NASCAR site owner, Fantazzle has a special free game created exclusively for this crowd. Simply use the Contact Us form on the website and mention this article to find out how you can get involved and get free publicity and exposure for your site and/or sports while competing against your peers for the title of fantasy racing king (or queen) and win a cash prize. All for free.
While fantasy racing has been the key focus of Fantazzle's recent game promotions, they also have some great things going on for fantasy basketball. The NBA season is at the All-Star break and most fantasy game sites have put fantasy basketball on hold until regular play resumes. Fantazzle is not one of these fantasy game sites. We have created a unique fantasy basketball game exclusively for the NBA All-Star weekend festivities. Fantazzle is proud to present the All-Star Fantasy Basketball Pick'em game. Pick who will win the slam dunk and three-point game contests while also choosing which stars will record the most fantasy points during the All-Star game. Once the game is over you can use your winnings to enter the special Mid-Season Fantasy Basketball Salary Cap game that Fantazzle is offering. And for those who may not have had the proper skills to take home the cash prize from the All-Star game, they can test their skills again with Fantazzle's Free Mid-Season Salary Cap Fantasy Basketball game where cash prizes will be given to the contest winners at season's end. Finally, if fantasy racing or fantasy basketball are not your sports, weekly fantasy golf games are available along with daily fantasy hockey games. In a few more weeks, it will be time to start playing fantasy baseball games and before you know it, the word lockout will be a thing of the past and it will be Week 1 of the fantasy football season.
