STANDINGS

RULES

Applicable to all Afterburner Motorsports Leagues

Updated 1/2/2017

 

Game play and game controller use.

All drivers must use either the original Nascar racing 2003 racing season Game, or use the nr2007 game with modifications so that the game will run on the RLM arena.

All drivers must use a driving wheel of your choice. NO game pads, Joy sticks are permitted.

 

1.  PROVISIONALS

All provisionals must be posted on the forum no later than 24 hours after the start of the race.

 

2.  TEAMSPEAK

If you want to race here at Afterburner Motorsports you MUST be on TeamSpeak3 with a working mic. If you are in the race server and not on TeamSpeak3 when the Driver's Meeting begins, you will be ejected from the race server without warning... NO exceptions.

 

3.  START TIMES

The race server will be usually be up no later than 6:30 Eastern the day of the race. The Driver's Meeting is held at 8:05 Eastern, followed by a 5 minute practice, qualifying and a 15 minute Happy Hour. Make sure you are back for the start of the race. The server will not be held for anyone. All drivers must be in the server no later than 20 minutes before the Driver's Meeting. If you are not in the server by this time you may NOT qualify for the race. Any time adjustments are at the Admin's discretion. Once the server is reset for the final time for the 5 minute practice, drivers are not permitted to disconnect from the race server.  

 

4.  STARTS / RESTARTS / CAUTIONS / GREEN FLAG PITSTOPS

There will be NO restarts once everyone has taken the green flag. NO passing the car directly in front of you until you have crossed the start finish line. Restart order will be at the Admin's discretion, either single-file with lead lap cars to the outside and lap down cars to the inside (sim rules) or double-file, depending on the track. This will be announced in the Driver's Meeting. The leader does NOT get lane choice on restarts. Lap down cars must line up at the rear of the field. No racing back when the caution comes out until 5 laps to go. There will be NO HOT PITTING (when a driver crosses the entry line of pit road at a higher rate of speed than posted for pit road and then rapidly slows down to pit road speed).  All drivers MUST be at pit road speed at the line. If a driver admits that they did speed and did not receive a black flag, they will be asked to fall to last on the track during the green flag run. Any driver caught hot pitting after the completion of the race will receive a one lap penalty for each infringement and loss of points.

 

5.   "LUCKY DOG" / "WAVE-AROUND" RULES

"Lucky Dog" recipients will be notified both on TeamSpeak and on text chat. When the "one to go" notification is given, pass the entire field on the high side of the track unless otherwise instructed and line up at the rear of the field. When the race goes green an admin will clear your black flag. This rule is in effect for the entire distance of the race. 

Drivers are only eligible for the "wave-around" if they are a lap or more down, have NOT pitted during the caution and are lined up IN FRONT OF the lead lap cars. If you have pitted under the caution or find yourself lined up behind lead lap cars, then you are NOT eligible for the "wave-around" and should remain where you are in the lineup. All eligible drivers must follow the "Lucky Dog" car around and line up at the rear of the field. When the race goes green an admin will clear your black flag.

If you are the cause of a caution, you will NOT be eligible for the "Lucky Dog" or the "wave-around".

 

6.   TWO-CAUTION RULE

The penalty for causing your first caution is to restart at the rear of the field. To ensure this, you must pit the second time the field passes pit road and then exceed the pit road speed limit (briefly) to assure that you get the "end of longest line" penalty for the restart.

The penalty for causing your second caution is to park your car / truck.

Whenever necessary, an incident will be reviewed by a league admin. If it is determined by an admin that more than one driver is at fault for causing the caution, each driver at fault will receive the same penalty.

 

7.   WRECKING UNDER CAUTION

If you cause a wreck while under caution you will receive a black flag when the race goes green, requiring you to make a "stop-and-go" pitstop. This penalty will also count as one of the two cautions against you.

 

8.   LAP-DOWN CARS

If you are a lap or more down with 10 laps or less to go you must go down pit road and line up in the back in order to give the lead lap drivers a chance to race for the win.

 

9.   LOW-LINING / BLOCKING

NO "low-lining" or blocking until there are 5 laps to go.

 

10.   CHAT / "FLAMING"

No chat / text during qualifying and race chat only on TeamSpeak when the caution is out. NO "flaming" will be tolerated on TeamSpeak or in text chat!!! Flaming will get you ejected from the race (for which you will receive NO points) and subject to up to four weeks suspension from that league.

 

11.  CHEATING

 If you are caught cheating you will be banned...  PERMANENTLY!!!
