Who's Using gfrCup?
gfrCup provides all the
functionality that you'll need to serve as
Commissioner of a Fantasy NASCAR League. The 2011 season marks the thirteenth year that
we've offered our software. In other words, our software is the best because we've
been doing it the longest. Here's why:
- NEW FOR 2012!
Team Limit Doubled
-- If your teams will carry five or less drivers, your league can consist of up to 400 teams.
And, if your teams will cary six to ten drivers, your league can consist of up to 200 teams.
So, recruit more teams!
Import the Teams from Last Season's gfrCup League
-- In the Franchise Info screen, you can now import all of the team information from your previous
season's league (team names, owner info, password, etc). Simply select 'Import Teams' and then
point to your gfrCup folder from last season ('C:\Program Files\gfrCup 2008 Edition\' if you accepted
the defaults during installation). That should save you some typing!
Use Custom HTML Headers and Footers for Reports
-- When you create HTML reports, you can use your own custom HTML at the top and bottom of the
report in order to match reports to your other web pages.
Web-Based Lineup Entry
-- gfrCup will create web pages
before each race based on your leagues rules. Once you post the pages to your
website, the team owners in your league will be able to log in with a password and
submit their lineup via a webpage form. Lineups
can be imported directly from the gfrCup server, eliminating the need to detach the lineup
files from emails. To learn more, please visit our
Web-Based Lineup Entry Tour page.
Create Multiple Reports with the Report Wizard
-- Set which reports you want to create at different times (e.g. before the lineup deadline,
before qualifying, after qualifying, after the unofficial results have been posted, etc).
Then, simply press a button and gfrCup will create all of the reports for you in one step.
You can even create full season and/or season segment reports.
Support for "Banked" Dollars -- Some leagues allow teams to carry payroll dollars
that aren't used over to the next race. Then, a team will have additional dollars to
spend on their lineup the following week. gfrCup supports "banking" of
Customize the Look of HTML Reports -- Commissioners can specify the font face and
color on gfrCup's many HTML reports, as well as the page background color and row colors.
This allows you to create reports that match the look and feel of your existing website.
Manage a league consisting of up to 200 teams (yeah that's right, 200 teams!).
Driver "Chase" Points
-- Once the "Chase" races commence, you can download a results file that will apply the "chase" point
adjustments for the top 10 drivers in the standings.
- Create Driver Groups --
Once you specify how many groups will be used and how
many drivers will be available in each group, gfrCup will display reports so
that your team owners can select a driver from each group. In addition, each time
you import official results for each race gfrCup creates new groups for the
next race based on your preferences.
Downloadable Results -- Download results directly into gfrCup
and let us worry about all the data entry. Other programs require you to enter the
stats yourself. In that case you may as well use a spreadsheet to run your

every finishing and qualifying position individually.
Then, set your reports to sort team points in either ascending or descending order.

divisions, add teams and delete teams from your league.
Support for multi-commissioners -- You can transfer your league data file between
different computers much more easily.

drivers are added to your league.

Series events. gfrCup offers two options for processing race results:
Files -- Each week downloadable Results Files are available from the gfrCup
website. Qualifying Results Files
are available no later than the evening prior to each race. Unofficial
Results Files are available shortly after the completion of each race.

results and your league is automatically updated.
- Manual Entry -- Click on a driver, enter
qualifying and finishing positions, check the appropriate boxes for laps led and gfrCup

-- gfrCup provides you with all the reports you'll need to ensure that your
franchise owners have the stats they demand to manage their race teams. Many of the
reports offer the option of displaying combined stats for all of your leagues.
Here's just a few:
League Season Summary -- League standings and the scoring detail of
each team for the most recent race.
-- Shows all drivers and their salaries.
-- Each team's current roster, including driver's current race points and
-- Displays all drivers sorted by current total points. It shows all the
important stats like starts, wins, top 5 and top 10 finishes, laps led info,
salary and free agent status.
- Team Scoring Detail
-- Breakdown of each team's scoring for the season, including
average start and average finish.
- Team Information
-- Team names, owners, phone numbers and e-mail addresses. A handy report to
distribute to league participants at the beginning of the season.

Set Folders for Reports and Lineup Entry Pages
-- In the Reports screen, you can set the folder on your computer where you want reports to be
saved and the folder where the lineup entry pages should be saved. gfrCup will remember the folders,
making it easy for you when you upload the files to your webserver.
Race Schedule Report
-- In addition to all of the race events, the Race Schedule report displays the team that scored
the most points for each race. The team name and score are displayed at the far right of the report.
Tracking of Lineup Changes
-- If your league charges teams for lineup changes from race to race -- or if you simply need to keep
track of how many changes each team makes throughout the course of the season -- you'll be glad to
see that gfrCup tracks how many drivers are changed from the previous race when a team's lineup
is imported. If you apply a transaction charge for changes, a charge for each driver change will
appear in the Transaction Log and in the Team Balances report.
More Stuff --
In addition to all of the features listed above, gfrCup offers a bunch of other
good stuff, including:
- Transaction Log Screen

your league. In addition, you can easily change transaction charges or delete
transactions when needed. You can also add transaction adjustments with
comments when you need to adjust team balances.

file in HTML or TXT format for distribution to your league via e-mail.
Comprehensive Team Information Screen

teams' addresses, phone numbers and email addresses from displaying in the Franchise Information
-- There is a box in the Franchise Info screen where you can enter each teams awards/winnings.

in the calculation for each team's current balance.
