Podium Club fantasy racing starts Jan. 26

Presenting the only game arcade that follows multiple series, so players can pick their favorite NASCAR, Formula 1, IndyCar, MotoGP and IMSA racers every week



Starting Friday,  the Podium Club FMFL (Fantasy Motorsports Franchise League) is back, this year benefiting the Pinal County Veterans Memorial Foundation in Casa Grande, AZ.


"The Podium Club at Attesa started supporting the PCVMF in 2022, through our annual Veterans Day SpeedFest event," said Bill Tybur, Director of Marketing.  "The games have been fully supported by player donations for the past few years, so we're going to give all net proceeds to the foundation in 2024."


The free games are easy to play with private leagues available for friends, family, co-workers, and others who share a passion for picking race winners every week without gambling.  There are no prizes, no one needs a credit card, but donations are welcomed.


"Our multi-series games are unique," added Tybur, "They're more like rotisserie football, where you start a quarterback, receivers, running backs, and other position players.  Players have to select drivers or cars in all the world's top racing series, every week, for every single race.  There are no drafts, rosters, or budgets; you just pick who you think will win. And it makes watching those races a whole lot more fun."


Round 1 picks for four of the nine different games are due before midnight Friday, Jan. 26, prior to the Rolex 24 at Daytona season opener for the IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship. Click here to enter and play, or go to fmfl.net.


The Pinal County Veterans Memorial Foundation is a 501(c)3 organization building a memorial that truly reflects the gratitude and recognition that local veterans deserve.  Founded in 2010, the PCVMF is now constructing the memorial on 1.3 acres at the Ed Hooper/Paul Mason Sportsplex on Pinal Avenue in Casa Grande. The foundation's goal is to complete the project by 2025.


A flag raising ceremony at the memorial site is scheduled for Feb. 10, 2024.


Last fall the Podium Club raised over $6000 for the PCVMF at the track’s SpeedFest event while honoring two Pinal County veterans and all Vietnam veterans, most of whom were race fans and car people.


"We're so proud and grateful for the Podium Club at Attesa," said Robert Miller, President of the PCVMF.  "They're helping us raise both money and awareness for the memorial, and they share our great respect and admiration for veterans and all who serve."


The Podium Club is located at 6870 S. Bianco Road, Casa Grande, AZ 85193, about 10 minutes west of the city, just a half mile south of Interstate 8.  For more information about the Podium Club and Attesa, call 602-707-7222; to reach the track, call 480-702-1074.
