The 2016 Forza Motorsport Challenge NASCAR Stock Car Series is a points-based series, consisting of 8 races.
You may run any of the 24 NASCAR cars in the game but you must use the same car for the entire series.
So you must specify exactly what car you are using when you sign-up.
The car may be painted with any livery, but must have large numbers on the right and left doors and roof. Please sign-up for a car number here.
Cars will be raced with Stock Upgrades and Stock Tuning.

SERIES DETAILS AND RULES:
Participants will recieve an invite from GLR1FastRedneck or GLR Lothar around 20:45 EDT U.S./19:45 CDT U.S./00:45 GMT.
Since game chat does not work very well at the moment, we will utilize party chat.
If we have more than 24 competitors show up for a race we will split the lobbies evenly.
Qualifying will start promptly at 21:00 EDT. Drivers will have 3 flying laps to put down their best time. Only certified laps will be counted as official. This best time will determine into which race lobby you qualify.
If you miss qualifying, you can still race but you will start in the back.
(Collisions Always Off, Damage Fuel and Tires, Any Assists)
The race will begin shortly after qualifying has been completed and the lobbies sorted. All drivers will get an invite from their room host. Please be patient but if you have not received an invite by 20 minutes after qualifying has completed please contact GLR1FastRedneck or GLR Lothar. (This will only happen if we have more then 24 competitors signed up.)
Grids will be ordered by qualifying times. All rooms should be set to have an End of Race Timer of None, so everyone can finish the race. Each race will begin with a Pace Lap for the rolling 2x2 gridded start on Lap 2. The Pole Sitter will lead the pack around the track at a pace speed of 80 MPH with all drivers getting in their correct position. The race will begin only when all drivers are lined up and ready to go, and only when the Pole Sitter reaches the Start/Finish Line and says “3-2-1-GO”. No driver can accelerate past the pace speed until after race has begun. No position changes should occur before “Go” is called by the pole. This applies to restarts too. If a jump start occurs, a restart will take place and the person who jumped early will start in the back. A complete restart may also be called for a single accident involving 2 or more cars on the first lap of the race(restarts are not allowed for separate incidents involving only 1 car). If a driver lags-out on the first lap, then a restart can take place.
(Collisions ON, Damage Fuel and Tires, Any Assists)
Any incident involving two or more cars must be called as “OFFICIAL CAUTION”, and the driver having the incident must call this out to warn all drivers. After the Caution is called, positions are maintained with no further passing of cars not involved and everyone will safely slow down to the Pace speed. The leader will assume Pace Car functionality during Caution Periods - going 80 mph. Everyone will catch up to the leader and line up 2x2. The cars that caused the caution will go to the back of the pack. The restart will then only take place when all cars are in position, and the lead car starts the race at the start/finish. All restarts are to be double file, just like at the start of the race. PIT STOPS ARE NOT ALLOWED DURING CAUTIONS
No cautions can be called once the Race Leader has started the 22nd lap(road course) or 46th lap(oval), but you still must notify all racers of the incident.
Bump drafting is allowed between co-operating cars. Bump drafting is not allowed when the lead driver asks you not to bump him. It is advised that you always allow at least 5 feet between cars to guard against “micro-lag” or “lag spikes.”
2 mandatory green flag pit stops will be required for all races this season. Pit Stops should be between lap 3 and lap 49(ovals) or lap 3 and lap 25(road courses). Any car exiting pit road must stay at the bottom or the inside of the track until they are up to racing speed. PIT STOPS ARE NOT ALLOWED DURING CAUTIONS
The car holding the position can make one move to defend the position up to the last lap. On the last lap they can make more than one. The car trying to take the position has to call out if and when he gets alongside the car in front. If the lead car moves over to block and the chasing car is already alongside, even if only by a bumper, the lead car risks causing a crash that would be his fault, not the fault of the chasing car.
All lapped cars must pay attention to where the lead lap cars are on the track. Once the lead lap cars get close to them they must stay to one side of the track, either the left or the right, until the lead lap cars have passed.
