Driver’s Meeting – Talladega

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 TeamSpeak 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.

Our TeamSpeak server is currently limited to 35 people. If the TeamSpeak server is full, and you can’t join before the race, please attempt to join after the race, especially if you finish in the Top 3.

TeamSpeak server: Password = USA

As a crown jewel event, this race will include a stage break at the end of Lap 37, which pays stage points to the top 10 drivers. If a caution flies within 5 laps of this scheduled stage break, the running order at the time of that caution will be used, and the stage break will occur during that caution period instead.

Drivers may not enter pit road for tires under green before the competition caution after completing 35 laps. In other words, the latest drivers may pit under green is at the end of Lap 35, coming to Lap 36.
