2014 Autoline Automotive Fantasy Draft

Rules & Procedures

Selection order is determined by the Producer who chooses the First Round rundown. For subsequent rounds each team will move up one slot as the owner who selected first, falls to fourth. This gives each participant the advantage of choosing first in a round at least one time.

Once a choice is made or drafted by a team, he, she or it is no longer an available choice for the 2014 Draft.

Each team owner will have 1-minute per round to make his selection. If that limit is exceeded, the Producer reserves the right to take appropriate action to keep the Draft moving apace.

After each selection, all team owners are required to explain his draft choice to the audience and who else he may have been considering.

The categories are self-explanatory. If there are any specifics about that particular category it will be highlighted in the text. If there are questions regarding that category by any team owner they must be addressed prior to the round starting; An answer will be determined by the Producer.

The Producer’s decision is the final word in any questions, disagreements or choices made during the Draft.
