Win $1M or New Truck in DirecTV NASCAR Bracket

If you’re like me, you need to be given a damn good reason to take an interest in NASCAR. Well, how about one million reasons? For the second year in a row, DirecTV is running its NASCAR Head2Head Knockout fantasy racing game on ESPN.com, which pits 32 drivers against each other in a four-week contest to determine which one is still standing when the checkered flag drops. And if your bracket is perfect, it could be worth $1 million. If it’s not perfect — but simply better than everyone else’s — you’ll win a $45,000 truck.

Starting at Pocono and continuing through the three races at Watkins Glen, Michigan and Bristol, you’ll have a chance to pick a winner in 29 driver matchups. In week one, each correct answer in the 16 matchups will be worth 20 points with the eight potential wins in week 2 worth 40 points apiece. Then, the wins in week three will add 80 points per to your total. In the final week, you’ll rank your final four drivers according to order of finish, and if your top one comes out ahead, you’ll get 160 points. That means over the four weeks, the maximum number of points you could receive is 1,120.

If you collected that many points there’s a very good chance you’d be the champion with the first prize a full size truck valued at $45,000 from on the manufacturer of the winning driver of race four.

You could also be in line for the Perfect Bracket Prize, which would be worth up to $1 million. To be “perfect” you would not only need to nail a perfect score, but also predict the correct finishing position order for each of those final four drivers in the race at Bristol.
