Driver’s Meeting – Charlotte

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 this week allows for 43 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.

As a crown jewel event, this race will include a stage break at the end of Lap 75, which pays stage points to the top 10 drivers, by order of position at the time of the caution. For this race, there will be no restrictions for green flag pitting prior to the stage break caution.
