We decided to mix up the standard NASCAR Oval Series for the B & C license class. Actually something we have been thinking about for a while but have to pull the trigger or would have to wait another year.

Currently at the A license class we have the Fixed and Open Series. With the three “Sprint” Cup Cars we also have racing at other license levels, specifically the NASCAR iRacing Series at license level D 4.0 and above that runs the entire Sprint Cup Season starting with the Daytona 500. There are seven races this year in that series that are real world full distance. The rest are around half distance. We run that fixed setup, only four race times a week and open setup only three races per week. We also have the Carb Cup Unofficial Series open to all license levels. None of any of the series will change. (The only change is going to move down the max incident points for the A Series from 17 to 14. The NASCAR iRacing Series will stay at 22 because of the long full distance races.)

However at the B license level (“Nationwide cars”) we are going to make a change. The very popular Fixed Series will stay as it is running the normal 12 week seasons. However, for the Open Series we are going to change it and mirror the real world full Nationwide season like we do for the NASCAR iRacing Series at the A level. Each week we will be going to the same track as the real world so it will be one long season. The difference is it will not be an event series just running a few times a week like the NASCAR iRacing Series. The races will run every two hours and be about half distance as the real world. The drop weeks will be 5 and 32 car fields like the NASCAR iRacing Series. Max Incident points will be 16. Important Note: We are going to end the existing Open Nationwide Series early so these two series do not overlap (the existing and the new). The new series will start with Daytona next Tuesady and the existing series will end this week, next Monday. Sorry for last minute Change.

At the C license level (“Truck Series”) we are going to also make a change. The very popular Fixed Series will stay as it is running the normal 12 week seasons. However, for the Open Series we are going to do the same thing as the Nationwide above and change it to mirror the real world full Truck season like we do for the NASCAR iRacing Series at the A level. Each week we will going to the same track as the real world so it will be one long season. The difference is it will not be an event series just running a few times a week like the NASCAR iRacing Series. The races will run every two hours and be about half distance as the real world. The drop weeks will be 5 and 32 car fields like the NASCAR iRacing Series. Max Incident points will also be 16. Important Note: Unlike the “Nationwide” Class B Series, the existing truck Class C season will run for the full twelve weeks. Therefore we will miss the first couple weeks of the real world season with our new Class C Open Season. This is because we have two new trucks coming out very likely in the March build, the Chevy and Toyota. Moreover, we can’t swap out cars within a season the way our system works. Therefore, we will finish the twelve week season with the existing truck and switch to the two new trucks for this new full length season starting after the March build.

There are no other changes for now to any other oval series. We hope this gives a better variety. A mix of following the real world and shorter seasons. Open and fixed. Longer races and shorter. Remember if you do like fixed and want to follow the real world you can do that in the NASCAR iRacing Series at the D level 4.0 and above. There would be too much racing if we try to do every possible scenario and mix but hopefully this offers more variety. With these two new series ab B & C will also add more official week 13 racing but also keep in mind some weeks these real world series do not race. It is good to able to fall back on the standard series in that case which run every week except week 13 for times per year. Once the real world NASCAR Season is over and we are mirroring that, not 100% sure what we will do for the open series during the 2-3 months of downtime for B & C license class. Several options including taking a break and maybe doing special events or could do a short season. Plenty of time to think about it.

Good Racing,

Does this mean Eldora confirmed for Trucks

This might be the wrong post to ask in but oh what the heck, hows the S2 build coming along Tony?

We thought about that obviously, just a few races per week like the NiS but also still wanted it available for the time constrained member, various time zones etc. Our hope is people will eventually group up like often happens into time slots.

Stillstand ist Rückschritt.
iRacing schaut sich die Statistiken immer gut an und reagiert darauf.

Serien an den Real Kalender angepasst ist zum Glück inzwischen möglich.

Für jeden sollte etwas dabei sein.

Das einzige was sich wirklich ändert ist, dass die Open rennen jetzt nicht mehr wöchentlich statt finden.

So weit es möglich war, wurde der RL Kalender nachempfunden und die Open Rennen sind jetzt auch schon "about half distance as the real world".
