As long as we have 6 or more to show up we will race, 5 or less we will postpone that race to the next scheduled night.   Due to computer issues & internet issues or someone running late. The host is required to wait until 9:10 before starting Qualifying.  At 9:10, Qualifying will start.  Once the field has started to Qualify, there will be no restarts if the “failed to show” participant joins.

5)     For a DNF no show there will be a 1 point penalty deducted from last place points, there will be no point penalty for all other DNF's.

6)      In order to create a fun race environment for all participants, a “No   F-Bomb” rule has been added.  Anyone caught dropping the “F-Bomb” or his “Mothers Bomb” will be subject to a 5 point penalty from there Point Standings!  Smaller insignificant words are not encouraged but will not hold a penalty

7)     Once the green flag has been dropped for the race, every car must make a full lap around the track without a yellow flag being displayed.  If the yellow is thrown before every car has crossed the start/finish line, the race will be restarted.  If every car has made a full lap under green, there will be no restarts. No yellow No Restart. For drafting tracks every car must make 2 complete laps. Daytona, Talladega, Las Vegas, Texas, Eight Bowl, Chicagoland, Indy, M&M, Lowes, Pocono, Coca cola, Michigan, California, Atlanta, Homestead. We will have 3 restarts, on the 3rd restart it is what it is. NO restart.

8)     If any participant has an internet failure or a computer malfunction during the course of the race,  DNF no point penalty.  I will use the +lap feature to fix your laps. Less a 1 lap penalty. I cannot put you back on the lead lap, depending on when you glitched, you have fresh tires and full gas tank.

9) The winner of each race will be subject to a car and motor tear down inspection, the driver also will be required to take a lie detector test.

10) On short tracks with No double file restarts, When starting the race or starting after a yellow, everyone needs to just hold your position until after the first corner, the cars in front of you earned that position and deserves to at least be able to maintain that position for one turn. The only time you should go a head and go around the cars in front of you would be if they get a very bad start, take the first corner badly, if you cannot make the pass on the first curve or even the second curve with out making contact or causing a wreck then wait until a time when you can.

11) Just for a little extra added fun, we will be also doing teams. This will just be for extra fun and will not affect individual points.

 

 

 

In order to follow real NASCAR as close as the game will let us we will have

 

 

Chase Format

 

After 26 “regular season” races, the Top 4 drivers, as determined by points accumulated during the regular season, automatically advance to contend for the Cup Championship.  These drivers are joined by one “wild card” qualifier.  The driver that is 5th or lower in the standings that has the most race wins will be the “wild card” and therefore taking the 5th and final spot in the Chase.  The 5 drivers total points will be washed clean and reset at a base of 2,000 points per driver.  Each of the 4 automatic qualifiers receives a bonus of 1 point for each win during the regular season.  The wild card qualifier will not receive any bonus points.  Normal scoring applies during the Chase, with race winners earning 43 base points plus 3 bonus points, all drivers who lead a lap earning 1 bonus point, and the driver who leads the most laps earning 1 bonus point in addition to any other points earned.

The Chase winner will take possession of the Wildcats Racing traveling Trophy.

 

 

Double File restarts

 

Under the new format, the race leader will restart with his choice of lanes, inside or outside lane. The second-place driver would then restart next to the leader. Drivers in odd number positions (third, fifth, seventh places, etc.) will restart on the inside lane, while drivers in even number positions (fourth, sixth, eighth places, etc.) will restart on the outside. All restarts will use the same format regardless of the number of laps remaining in the race. Black flags caused by double file restarts will be cleared always if you are on the inside line, if you are on the outside lane your black flag will be cleared the first offence, it will not be cleared if you are black flagged on the outside lane a second time in that race. You know that you must keep your bumper behind the car on the inside lane so don't do it.

The first-place driver will continue to control the timing of restarts in a designated zone on the track. Likewise, cars are to stay in line until they reach the start/finish line or risk Black Flags. The no passing before the first curve rule will be eliminated. No Double file restarts & no passing till after the first curve on these tracks. Bristol, Martinsville, Richmond, Dover, Darlington, Watkins Glenn, Phoenix, Infinion.

The first eligible car a lap or more down will continue to earn one lap back following a caution, which is known as the "free pass” (Lucky Dog). The "free pass" (Lucky Dog) will remain in effect the entire race. 

Lapped cars choosing to remain on the track without pitting will be "waved around" the caution car and will restart the race in respective track position, thus picking up a lap to the leader. This will also remove lapped cars from behind the pace car, allowing the leaders to take the green without interference. Until 10 to go. If the caution comes out with 10 or less to go, then there will be no wave arounds.

If we are going to go green with Under 5 to go ALL Lap down cars must pit when the pit opens for lap cars, allowing the leaders to take the green without interference.

Caution on lap 11, wave around, Caution on Lap 10 NO wave around.

Procedure for Lucky Dogs & Wave arounds, You MUST pit on your designated lap. Lucky Dogs can pit & get gas & Get tires, Wave arounds may NOT PIT for GAS & Tires.

Both Lucky Dogs & Wave around MUST speed in Pit lane to receive a End of the longest line Penalty, thus putting them at the back of the pack.

When we go Green I will add a lap to the Lucky Dog and any wave arounds. We may have to call a Wildcats caution depending on the Track and the number of cars that I have to give a lap to.
