ASL Firecracker 400

July 3, 2022

The ASL Firecracker 400 is a full-length, 160 lap race on the high banks of the legacy Daytona International Speedway. The winner will be awarded $100!

The ASL Firecracker 400 is free to enter for all drivers actively registered with American SimRacing League. To register, go to our new driver information page and pay the $15 dues, which will allow for participation in this event, as well as our Elite Series and other special events throughout 2022!

The race server will be in the “League Sessions” area of iRacing. You will not need a password to enter as a registered driver in the league. Entry to the server will be first come, first serve. The server allows for 60 maximum entries.

We ask all drivers to be in the Discord server before Qualifying begins. Trackside Racing Network may pull in drivers for interviews under yellow flag or after the race. Most importantly, the top three finishers will be interviewed immediately after the race.

While we don’t anticipate exceeding the maximum 43 car count for the event, we will set up a 15-lap LCQ for any drivers outside the top 38 qualifying times to earn their way into the race.

The NASCAR 1987 Cup Cars will be used for the ASL Firecracker 400.
