SDRL Pro Late Model points season begins Friday!

The Slingin’ Dirt Racing League proudly presents the OFFICIAL kick-off to the points championship season! After much consideration, we have decided we will mainly stick with 1 track, Eldora Speedway, and run with Dynamic Weather and Automatically Generated track states.

The point system will be as follows:
1 and on.
Fixed setups as usual.

One adjustment is we will try this week a new format. We will hotlap for 20 minutes and then run OPEN qualifying. We will lineup as a grid and run a single “heat race” — for 8 laps. While we can’t manually change the grid (without doing some other tinkering and spending more money), we hope this will make things a little more enjoyable. It would still be based off quickest laps completed.

We’ll have 10 minutes to run that “heat race” which I expect we should be able to line up quickly enough to try it out. With the time being adjusted, I’ve scaled back to 35 minute feature and we have 30 minutes in which to complete that.

This isn’t the best solution at the moment but until our participation increases to where I can comfortably approach sponsors to help us with the server rental fees, we will go with this format for the time being.

Next Friday June 9th, we will take a week off, and then roll back into it.

Your input is greatly appreciated, if you have any. We want to see this league succeed, but can’t do it without your help. Each one of you is a VITAL part of SDRL.

Thank you,
Markus Hankins
