March Madness is here and the NCAA Basketball Tournament is a favorite time of year here at Sports Technologies. We are proud to be the main developers of the Official NCAA March Madness Bracket Challenge game. We also have developed for a second year in a row a Round by Round Pick'em game that lets fans return and pick games before each round, instead of the traditional bracket the locks prior to the start of the tournament. Our bracket application is part of the NCAA® March Madness® Live Mobile App available in the iTunes store and Google Play store. We have continued our succesful working relationship with BleacherReport.com to produce versions of the Bracket Challenge and Round By Round Challenge for their users.

In less than two weeks, the NASCAR season kicks off with the Daytona 500. Once again, our team has developed top flight fantasy products for NASCAR.com. Join our team in playing the NASCAR Fantasy Live 2014 and Streak to the Finish products.
In Fantasy Live 2014, players manage a team of five Sprint Cup Series drivers against a $100 salary cap. Players earn points as their drivers compete in four categories, over the course of all 36 races in the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series™ schedule.
In Streak, players pick the driver they think will finish in the top 10 each week. If a correct pick is made, the streak begins and the player may no longer choose that driver until the streak is broken. The player attempts to earn as long a streak as is possible.
Our team is excited to start another NASCAR season, and we hope you'll join us for it.
