    Hello Starting Nov 10th FKR will be hosting a 5 race stock car series with rf2's latest NSCR15 on Tuesdays !

    Race time = 1900 hrs = evening's euro time ,or 11am pacific usa, 2pm est usa..

    Race length = 60 min


    Tue Nov 10 Brookdale Speedway (8 drivers signed up so far)


    Tue Nov 17 Mountain Peak Speedway


    Tue Nov 24 Jacksonvillie Superspeedway


    Tue Dec 01 Joesville Speedway


    Tue Dec 08 Indianapolis Oval



    This series will follow the NASCAR rules as close as we can with rolling starts, caution's, restarts, Lucky Dog & penalty's ..

    This will be a points battle with bonus points for top 3 qualifiers...

    so get your Q sets honed up!

    Things to look out for :

    Rolling starts will be double wide

    Starts & re starts : Leader will set the pace and hold until it goes green , their is no passing on the right before the line ! ... once we go green if you blow by someone on the right(there left) and you haven't crossed the start finish line yet you will get a penalty .. you can go up hi and pass on the left (there right) "wall side" w/o penalty . (that's why you block or hog the hi side)



    We will see a lot of the pace car ! If you cause a caution shake it off , go for repairs if your damaged ! the Lucky dog rule will allow you a chance to get any laps lost back !

    Pit Lane entry/exit:

    Pit in: you must enter the pits no later than T3/4 on most tracks ,we can adjust as needed (Indy and Jacksonville might be T3 under green)..(if under yellow you may enter from the end of T4 or just before the cone)

    Pit out: You MUST follow the pit lane out to the back strait .. Enter the track on the back strait only ! be careful to stay out of the way while you get up to speed !..

    Map your pit menu: be ready to make set up changes on the fly .. right side tires only ? the pit stops are as much a part of the race as the driving ! when a caution comes out take advantage of the pace laps to get new tires ,gas & any repairs you might be holding off on to save time ectt.. ..green flags stops are intense game changers ! "get it while you can" under yellow if possible !

    Lucky Dog: The lucky dog allows you to get a lap back under a caution period (about 4 laps per caution).. To get the lucky dog you need to be the FIRST car that's 1 lap down so closest to the leader .. so if 2 or more drivers are a lap (or more) down they need to battle to be the first car back from the leader ..

    The driver getting the Lucky Dog will get the message in the chat window once the pace car crosses the S/F line on the first pace lap, so pay attention ! if you think it might be you be ready to go !

    In this series we will have the lucky dog pass on the high side . The rest of the field needs to stay off the wall under the caution and leave the hi side clear .

    Once your name has been announced as the lucky dog you may speed up, go to the hi side and pass the entire field continuing around to your new place at the end of the line ..If you were only 1 lap down you will now be on the lead lap ..

    Is it possible to have a safety car for the starts. All the manual start races I've done end up in a mess.
