MEMO FROM THE COMMISSIONERS OFFICE
 

     Hello everyone and welcome back for another season of Holodeck Racing. I am looking forward to our 3rd season together in the Cup cars and our second season in the trucks. After careful consideration I have decided to make very few changes after a pretty fun season 2. 

Anyone NEW to the site please check out our RULES page on how to JOIN The Holodeck Racing League


COMING SOON :

HoloCup Season 3 and TNT 2021-B  Schedule Announcement
 

HoloCup Season 3 and TNT Season 2021-B Updates:


We will continue to run the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series Cars. We will review the NEXTGEN car status and setup availability as Season 4 approaches in February of  2022. The number of races for season 3 (and going forward) will be 19 total races with the first 13 being regular season races and the last 6 elimination style chase races. Race length for each track will remain the same as the first 2 seasons. Even though it was discussed, we will not be adding stage racing. Below are the detailed changes:


**START TIME CHANGE** 
Practice Time   :  8:00pm ET : 7:00pm CT : 6:00pm MT : 5:00pm PT
Qualifying Time:  9:00pm ET : 8:00pm CT : 7:00pm MT : 6:00pm PT

 

#1 Starts/ Restarts will now be on the race leader for both series. Leader may go at any time after the pace car is completely off the track, but must go no later than when iRacing gives the "Green" signal. No changing lanes prior to start line.

Note* Pole sitter should pace at a consistent speed approximately 2 car lengths behind the pace car for good visibility to see when the pace car is completely off the track and entering pit road.

 

#2 Fuel will be reduced for Season 3 to 60% for both series. Season 1 was 50%, Season 2 was 70%

 

#3 HoloCup Series tire set for all races will be 1 to start and 3 changes, including Daytona and Talladega. TNT series will remain unlimited.

 

#4 Provisional change:  3 for races 1 thru 13 (regular season races), 1 for races 14 thru 18 (chase races). No provision will be given for race 19 (championship race)

 

#5 Scoring adds/changes

A- Add: Finish race = 1 pt. Awarded to every driver that finishes the race without disconnecting.

B- Add: Most positions gained in a race = 1 pt. From start position to finish position.

 

#6 Chase format added for both HoloCup and TNT series
