Updated Fantasy IndyCar Record Book - 2016

Now that we are done with our fifth year of Fantasy IndyCar, we have accumulated a lot of statistics and a lot of records that I would like to share with you all!

Up until earlier this week, records for the 2012 and 2013 Fantasy IndyCar seasons did not exist, as I only started saving the records from the 2014 season onwards. Happily, I had a lightbulb moment and just decided to re-create the records, as the picks from 2012 and 2013 were still on my website. All I had to do was re-enter the numbers and save! So for the first time ever, here are a number of statistical records, both race, season, and career records in Fantasy IndyCar.


Champions

2012 - Kyle Lewis
2013 - Jason McVeigh
2014 - DJ Jordan
