News & Updates

NASCAR iRacing Series (NiS) 2013

Description of Series: This iRacing official series to follow the weekly Sprint Cup Track Schedule racing the new Gen-6 cars for the entire Sprint Cup season.

Objective: A new, special event style official series aimed at providing fun and competitive NASCAR racing for every license level except the rookie license level. This series also intended to have a direct tie-in to the excitement of the real world NASCAR Sprint Cup by being at the same tracks each week and battling through a long and varied schedule like the real-world drivers.

Race Times: Two different weekly time slots to keep it event style yet offering some schedule flexibility. Thursday nights 9:00 PM EST (2:00 GMT) & Saturday mornings at 11:00 AM EST (16:00 GMT). After the daylight savings time change, the GMT times will move forward 1 hour. (1:00 GMT & 15:00 GMT)

Car choices: Chevrolet SS-Gen6 car & Ford Fusion-Gen6 car (once released)

Tracks & Race Weeks: Every Sprint Cup track starting with the third race of the year, Las Vegas, for a full 34 week season. We are starting with third race this year because that will allow us to start the series with the new Gen6 cars which are under development. (FYI, the World Tour Daytona 500 event is available to run using old car for that race week.) Track Note: Kansas and Fontana are still under construction. Kansas should be ready for second race in October, but not the first race at that track. Fontana will not be done in time for that race week. Therefore,Rockingham will replace Fontana and Iowa will replace the first Kansas race. We will NOT run the All-star race or race week at Charlotte as part of this series.

Race distance: Half the distance of the real-world race. For example, the Coke 600 will be 300 miles in this series.

iRacing member eligibility: Oval license level D class and above. This will be an oval license class series, even though some scattered road course racing.

Resets: none

Server farms: U.S. server farms only in order to better group participants.

Race warmup time: 10 minutes
