After beginning as a small office pool back in 1996 at former CART headquarters in Troy, Mich., the BFL has since grown into a mainstay of the entire motorsports community and more, with up to 40 players from all walks of life expected to join the fray this year. A story to watch will be if the BFL can produce its first ever three time champion in history with the biggest number of former league titlists set to take up the challenge in years. Mrs. Backmarker (Rena Shanaman-Tenorio - 2016) leads a strong group of BFL champs that include BobbyG (Bob Gallant - 2015), Surfside Sam (Kevin Wilkerson – 2014), Diablo (Jerry Dunlap - 2009), Christine (Christine Reinhart – 2005,2008), Marcus Blade (Marc Matlen - 2006), Team Gridiron (Mike Daniels – 2004), Raising Cain (Merrill Cain – 2003), Pikachu (Alec Applebaum – 2002) your humble Commish ATOM (Adam Saal – 2001,2007) and Freddie T (Fred Tenorio – 1997). Long-gone BFL player Kim Parker scored back-to-back titles in 1998 and ’99.
