Welcome all and hello!

I'm starting season 2 of my racing league! The season will be 1+4 months long (the first month being preseason), with a final Cup race on the 22nd of July. Each event week on Sunday @ 2000 UTC, I will host 4 events: two 'circuit' style races (each having 4+ laps), a team race (typically a figure 8, but occasionally a loop race), and a demolition derby. All events will use 'normal' damage.

Each week, a password will be posted on this thread, letting you into that weekend's races. In addition, approximately a half-hour (sometimes more) prior to event start, the server will be up and open to everyone for practice of that week's events (and to potentially get more participants each week). The first week of preseason will begin Sunday, March 4th, @ 2000 UTC.

In the weeks leading up to the first event, I'll be hosting preliminary races on Sunday, to work out any kinks in my server (Wreckfest and TeamSpeak). These preliminaries will not be worth any points, and will mostly be used to drum up interest as well as practice for the start of the season.

Points will be given out all participating drivers for each event, with bonus points given out for certain awards (see below). At the end of the season, the top 16 drivers will be invited to the final Cup race. The final Cup race will be a longer, special race, worth quadruple the points! Last season, misterbob took first place. When I asked him how he'd like to receive his $20 prize, he told me to apply it towards the next season... So, this time, I'm paying to three places! The top three points winners will receive cash prizes: $30 for 1st, $15 for 2nd, and $5 for 3rd.

Teams will assigned randomly each week, and the number of teams will be adjusted by the number of participants. Drivers will bring a single car each week (meaning, the same car for all events). Cars will be limited to a certain 'points' range (ex: one week might limit drivers to 130-149 cars).

The only rules are as follows:
 - 1) No going the wrong direction on the track (the only exceptions being the loop courses and crash canyon). Drivers found to be in direct violation of this rule will be removed from the competition.
 - 2) No changing/modifying cars between events. Drivers found to be in violation of this rule will receive no points for any events in which they do not use their originally entered car.
 - 3) While trash talking is okay (and, within reason, even encouraged!), excessive foul language and disrespect towards other drivers in either voice or text chat will not be accepted. Drivers found to be in violation of this rule will be given a warning. Repeat offenders will be removed from the competition.
I will be the final arbiter when it comes to rules violations.

The points will be awarded as follows: Banger Race events will give points based upon race position. Team Race and Derby events will give points based upon score first, with event position being used as a tie breaker. Bonus points will be awarded for Best Lap during Banger Race and Team Race events; for 1st-, 2nd-, and 3rd-place teams during Team Race events (no bonus points for last-place teams); and for Heavy Hitter, Last Man Standing, and Takedowns during Derby events. Lastly, daily handicap points will be awarded to drivers that willingly take a handicap by bringing a car that's lower than the maximum (ex: bringing a 134 car instead of a 149). In addition, the first month's events (all of March) will be considered preseason and only worth 1/2 the normal points. This is an attempt to ensure late entrants aren't impossibly behind.
