Dirt Draft, a short track racing fantasy sports mobile app, will give race fans the chance to draft a lineup of sim racing and real-world Late Model stars Saturday night. In a partnership between Dirt Draft and Speed51, a contest will be held for the Rowdy Energy Super Select Series event at Southern National Motorsports Park.
Dirt Draft is like many popular daily fantasy sports services, but catered towards short track racing fans ready to assemble their own speed team. Drafting a team is quick and easy.
First, click this link to sign up for a Dirt Draft account and use referral code “Speed51” to be eligible for special prizes.
From there, you can enter Saturday’s contest. $100,000 in fictional currency will be at your disposal to select a team of five drivers, with salaries assigned on past performance in the Super Select Series, success in other sim racing events, as well as other factors.
A New Favorite
Alex McCollum is the favorite to win on Dirt Draft once again after extending his points lead with his third win last weekend at Southern National Motorsports Park. However, a new challenger in Ty Majeski is looking to unseat the eNASCAR Coca-Cola iRacing Series regular in his debut.
Along with 100 career victories in the real world, Majeski is one of the best oval competitors on the iRacing service. Majeski already has one iRacing win on Speed51 this week, taking the victory with the Sid’s View Modified Series at Iowa.
eRattler 250 winner Devon Morgan, Parker Retzlaff, and Kaden Honeycutt follow on the Dirt Draft price tags.
Snowball Derby “Winners”
Three drivers who claimed Snowball Derby wins last December are entered for tonight’s race at Five Flags Speedway. The official winner of the Snowball Derby, Travis Braden, has been steadily improving over the last few weeks. The driver who crossed took the checkered flag first in the 2019 Snowball Derby, Stephen Nasse, drove through the field last week at Southern National and had a top-10 finish in hand before a late-race incident relegated him to 21st. In the sim racing world, Devon Morgan looks to defend his eSnowball Derby win from four months ago.
At $21,330, Nasse is a very intriguing pick due to his vast improvement on the sim in recent weeks and the real-life familiarity of the Pensacola oval. John Peters has shown consistency in his four starts (12th, 13th, 12th, 16th), while Kole Raz has been competitive in other sim races broadcasted on Speed51.
If you’re looking to go top-heavy and pick McCollum or Majeski, Raphael Lessard ($14,175) would leave you with some change to get a top dog while still giving you a good chance at scoring an overall win.
The top finishers in the contest will receive points towards their Dirt Draft account, with the winner taking the lion’s share of the points purse. Those points can be used to claim prizes such as merchandise, online subscriptions, tickets to marquee short track events, pay-per-view broadcasts and more.
For just $5.99 a month or $59.99 a year, race fans can play up to 350 fantasy racing contests per year on the Dirt Draft mobile app.
