Click to hide sectionDescription

Displays the following information about the top N drivers (N is a number between 1 and 20 specified via the Preferences) in the current NASCAR Sprint Cup, Nationwide, or Camping World Trucks Series:
  • Rank
  • Driver name
  • Points
  • Behind
  • Money
  • Wins
  • Poles
  • Top 5
  • Top 10

The NASCAR series is chosen from the Preferences window. Rank, points, money, top 5, top 10, etc, will update as information becomes available. By default, data is refreshed when the widget is loaded, when you select "Refresh" from the context menu, and when you save your Preferences. You may also, via the Preferences, set the data to refresh when the widget is maximized.

The dock displays the top 3-4 drivers.

Data is scraped from ESPN.

Columns displayed and background opacity are configurable.

Logo position and size (starting with version 1.3.4) are configurable. The logo can be placed at any of the corners, allowing you to align the widget against any edge of the screen.

Double-click the logo to minimize or expand the standings list. You may also click on the minus and plus images to minimize or expand the standings list.

Hovering over the logo will display the "Last Updated" time in a tooltip.

From the Preferences window, you can tell the widget to check for a newer version on startup. You can also check for updates by selecting "Check for newer version" from the context menu.

Click to show sectionNotes

Since it scrapes data from a live web page, this widget will break if that web page changes its format. I'm, uh, not really a sports fan. With the exception of my Georgia Tech and Redskins widgets, I don't run any of my sports widgets. If something is broken, please contact me and I will attempt to fix it.

  • To the fine people behind www.ajaxload.info, which I used to generate the new (well, new in August 2007) "loading" graphic that is optionally displayed when data is being retrieved
  • To JT for functionality suggestions
