RUMOR: FAC may merge it's NRC program in 2014

Rumors are circulating that FAC Motorsports may be merging it's NRC program for the 2014 season.  Many believe that this may be a cost saving maneuver as their 2013 ARLA program has put a financial strain on the team.  This means that the future of Allison Wilson is now uncertain.  Team owner Frank Azure could not be reached for comment.

Total Control Racing to return to NRC in 2014

In a quite surprising announcement, Total Control Racing have announced that they will make a return to the National Racing Championship in 2014 with Ryan Wade as their driver. TCR ran as a two-car team in 2012 Wade and Greg Phillips as their drivers, but funding for that team dried up for some unknown reason soon after the Season ended and so they couldn't compete in 2013. But now that they've regained most of their funding, they will run full-time next year with Wade and with Mobil 1 as a very likely sponsor to jump aboard the team as well.

The National Racing Championship would make their annual visit to Canada, this time heading to the Mosport oval (OOC: The road course pit lane was giving me a headache).  The field for the race would be decided by three heats and a Last Chance Qualifier.  The top ten in points coming into the race were locked in.

The top four finishers from the heats would transfer to the main race, while the top six from the LCQ would transfer, having to start at the back of the grid.

Heat 1:

Heat 2:

Heat 3:

Is Lycoia remaining in the series with Helsing entering the series in 2014?

It seems that Lycoia may return with the Interceptor but another manufacturer, which is partially owned and powered by Lycoia/Lenard, may be making an entrance into the series. Helsing, based out of Holland Michigan, has built a Hunter chassis for the upcoming season as well. This endeavour is more than likely a testbed of sorts for the young but aspiring manufacturer.

It's up the the officials to determine if one or both are allowed to be used by teams next year.

There are also rumors that Accelerator Motorsports may be entering the series in 2014, Sarah Xavier and Dan Foray are being tapped as returning as well.

It's at a halt for the moment.  I got my new laptop, but the old one quit charging a couple days before.  The hard drive is fine so I can get the carfiles from it, but I'm not able at the moment.  I do have a ratings file so I can at least run the races with blanks.  Regardless, I will finish the season and more than likely there will be no videos--especially if I can't get the carfiles within the next week or so.

2014 will begin at the end of March or early in April; the templates are nearing completion.  Remember, if you plan on your team returning, let me know in some way.

Tuttle Super Team to Form?

Rumors have circled around the NRC garage that a 'super team' is being formed for the 2014 NRC season. The primary team involved in this formation looks to be Alex Whitt Racing, who has been the primary Tuttle team since their debut in the series. Not many other details have been announced regarding this apparent merger, however it should be noted that FAC Motorsports had previously announced that they could be merging with another team. It is also unknown whether Leckliter Racing has any affiliation in this, as they are the only other full time team running with the Tuttle chassis.

Remember to fix up your entries on TMPedia.  I'm still accepting full-time and part-time teams, so if you would still like one, just post your intent in this thread or put an entry under the "Rumored Entries" portion of the TMPedia page.  

Tuttle "Super Team" Becomes Official

A press conference was held at the Alex Whitt Racing shop yesterday to confront the rumors of a Tuttle Super Team formation for the 2014 National Racing Championship season.  AWR team owner Alex Whitt conducted the conference and got right to the point, claiming the rumors were true.  Immediately questions by reporters arose as to who, if anybody, would be involved with this "Super Team".  The question was quickly answered, as FAC Motorsports was confirmed as one team to be involved in the merger.  Another team was confirmed to be in on this alliance as well, and it was announced that M&D Motorsports would join the effort. This wasn't a great surprise, as Whitt made a few ARLA Elite Series starts for Ike Durbin's team, who co-owns M&D Motorsports with Michael More, Jr.

M&D Motorsports co-owner Ike Durbin was in attendance and stated that the goal of this merger would be to "continue to grow and become more competitive by sharing information and equipment."

While full details were not in order at the time of the conference, an official team name and plan was ready to be announced.  Alex Whitt was quoted as saying, "I don't want to give out too much information, but the official team name will be Tuttle Motorsports, Inc., or TMI.  We aim to field four cars, and other details regarding those plans will be updated at a later time."

The three teams fielded a combined four cars in 2013. Whitt himself will not return as he is off to the FARC Elite Series. No drivers have been confirmed yet for any of these cars.

2014 NRC Paint Kit

Post by RyanB06 on Sun Jan 26, 2014 4:32 pm

(Posted with Rykia's permission. Smile)

4shared.com/zip/QT1uHLdxce/2014_NRC_Paint_Kit.html

The 2014 National Racing Championship painting kit is (finally) here. Included in the zip file are the approved templates (Helsing, Inglesby, Lenard, Saar Eagle, Saar Carolina, Matthews, and Tuttle), the contingency pack, the nameplate font (more on that in a minute) and a readme file.

What's this about a nameplate font?

New for 2014, each car will have a window banner, analogous to what the Sprint Cup uses. However, instead of a one-size-fits all banner, the NRC will use two: a red one for veteran drivers and a yellow one for rookies. (This is in addition to the rookie stripes on the rear bumper.)  If you aren't sure if your driver qualifies as a rookie, please consult the team chart on TMPedia.

Place the windshield banner at the top of the windshield outline layer on the template. I've noticed that the banner color drops down onto the windshield strips...this is a known issue and can't really be fixed cleanly. My suggested solution is to turn on the wireframe layer (all the templates should have one) and remove the parts that go onto the strips. It won't be a clean fix, but it looks correct in-game.

I have also provided three different ignition box layers for your cars to use: MSD, Mallory, and Accel. You may use whichever one you want, but there's a catch: there are logo decals for each one on the contingency pack, and you must use the sticker that corresponds with the box you picked.

Below is an example of how a finished car should look (and some shameless self-promotion in the process):


Please let me or Rykia know if you have any questions (or if the download doesn't work).

FAC owner Azure confirms involvement in Tuttle Super Team

In the wake of the announcement of the formation of a Tuttle "super team", FAC Motorsports owner Frank Azure has confirmed his involvement in the the merger with M&D Motorsports and Alex Whitt Racing to form Tuttle Motorsports, Inc. Rumors started after last season that that Azure was looking to merge away its NRC program to cut costs after a costly 2013 ARLA season. Azure, who has not commented about rumors since they started, finally broke his silence at a press conference at the FAC headquarters in Providence, Rhode Island.

"After last season, our ARLA program cost us so much, we looked at something to cut. We ultimately decided on the NRC program. But rather than shut it down completely, we were looking for a partner to keep the program going. This could definitely help us in the long run as now we have other cars to share information with to help improve the 64. Look out for us in 2014."

Azure, who is the listed owner of the 64 which FAC has fielded the last two seasons, would go on to mention that this merger would not affect the day-to-day operations of FAC Motorsports in other racing outlets.

Wilson retained for 2014; under pressure to perform by sponsors

Azure would also state in the press conference that after talking it over with the other owners of the team, Allison Wilson would keep her seat in TMI's 64 car. However, Wilson was almost not retained by the team because sponsor Right Stuf has put pressure on the team due to Wilson's lack of performence. This put Wilson under a lot of pressure to perform in 2014.

"We wanted Allison back, but the reason it took this long to get the deal done, because it took time to convince Right Stuf to stay with us while keeping Allison in the car. I have a feeling that this merger and having teammates now will help her performance as well."

More optimistic about TMI merger; More Jr. ready for 2014

On the heels of the big announcement of the formation of the Tuttle "super team" and the merger of M&D Motorsports, Alex Whitt Racing, and FAC Motorsports, M&D co-owner Jim More hadn't spoken about the merger. That was until today. More was the featured guest on a radio in his hometown of Grand Rapids, Michigan, and was asked about the NRC "super team" merger. His response was the following:

"Well, it certainly has its benefits for all those involved. Frank [Azure] gets the necessary capital he needs to continue his program; Alex [Whitt] gets three more programs to develop what I believe is an amazing product; and Ike [Durbin] and myself get more resources to develop our drivers and programs as well. In the end, we all get a benefit and in the long run hopefully we can bring race victories and a championship as a result."

More then went on to discuss the future of his nephew Michael More Jr. who drives the #156 for M&D.

"Mikey [Michael More Jr.] is still getting his bearings about him. In all honesty, our program is still developing and we've had some decent runs as of late. As of right now, Mikey is going to continue with us and I'm looking at bringing in a new sponsor as well. So, I'm fully committed to developing Mikey and seeing him succeed."

Mentlegen, the 2013 NRC Season is finally complete...

THE RACE RESULTS:
Results for Rounds 5-16 can be downloaded here.

THE POINTS BATTLE:
Going into the season finale race at Rockingham, three drivers had a shot at taking the 2013 NRC Championship.

Leading the points was Arik Arikovski in the 12, sitting on 316 points.
In second was Billy Ray Smith-Thompson, 18 points behind, with 298 points.
Giuseppe Marchetti went into the finale as the longshot, 25 points back, with 291 points.

THE OUTCOME:
The 2013 NRC Champion would be...



Giuseppe Marchetti, #15, RossiniSport, Isanni Mancer

Despite being the longshot, Marchetti took Rockingham by storm.  Maybe it was because he had nothing to lose.  But regardless, he was strong all weekend, leading two of the three practice sessions.  His pace continued into the race, charging up to the front from his thirteenth place starting position, leading laps, and going on to finish second.  However, it was good enough, and Marchetti won the championship by a mere...two points.

THE FULL POINTS:

Macena Motorsports wants to buy the remains of WestFall Motorsports. Intentions to sign Fernando Matos.

The Macena Motorsports main owner Roberto de Souza, expressed intentions to buy the remains of WestFall Motorsports, a team that announced that would race on the NRC but may have folded before the season. He also said that would sign with Fernando Matos, as he (Matos) could not return to Tom Delgado Racing in 2014.
"Fernando is a really good driver.Made great results this year and we would promptly sign with him if he wishes to race with us." - said Roberto.
About buying the remains of WestFall, Roberto answered:
"I would buy them if the NRC officials allow. If it happens, the team would become part of our development division."

Go ahead.  There may have been human error when adding the points from the first four races.

EDIT: I can see why it doesn't look right Laughing . But this this includes the points from races 1-16 with only showing stats from races 5-16. Still, feel free to check it as I still might have made a mistake somewhere.

Yeah, you have to take into consideration the first four races.
Spoiler:
While Alexis Farr had easily the best results from 5-16, she was 30th in points after race 4. Similarly, Marchetti had a decent-sized points cushion after race 4.

Focus Autosports Finalizes 2014 Plans

After debuting in the National Racing Championship last season with Vincenzo Fochesato on a part-time basis, Focus Autosports will return to make a championship effort in 2014. However, with Fochesato’s increasing FARC commitments, he will not be back in the team’s NRC car.

As Fochesato’s replacement, Riley Durbin will be driving the team’s Lenard R20 Cheyenne. Team co-owner Giuseppe Fochesato discussed his decision with reporters. “Vincenzo was telling me he was impressed with how well [Riley] Durbin did in his first two ARLA starts, so I was pleased to hear he hadn’t been signed to drive anywhere else yet. This’ll be the first year for us with points on the line, and with Riley behind the wheel and our new sponsors coming on board, we’ve set ourselves up to do really well. If we do our job right as a team, Riley will definitely win some races.”

In 2013, Focus Autosports started four NRC races, scoring two top tens and a best finish of fifth. For the new driver and the new season, the team’s entry has been renumbered from #37 to #3, and has acquired sponsorship from auto parts and service store chain Auto Value.

Riley Durbin, the younger cousin of TM Lights driver Ike Durbin, made two starts in the ARLA Elite Series last season for Ike Durbin, Inc. at Mosport and Montmagny, in which he performed very well.

Tom Delgado Racing to Run Partial Schedule in 2014

In an attempt to pool their resources towards other challenges, Tom Delgado Racing announced that they would only attempt a handful of races in the 2014 NRC season. Team officials did not give a specific reason other than they wanted to shift more of their resources towards challenges in the FARC Elite Series and potential TM Master Cup Series attempts.

Fernando Matos Open to Staying in NRC For 2014

After a 2013 season which saw him score 7 top 10 finishes en route to a very respectable 13th place points finish, Fernando Matos has not ruled out staying in NRC for 2014. It just won't be with Tom Delgado Racing.

"I have been in America for a year and I have enjoyed myself. I would like to stay longer, hopefully I can grab a spot with a hard working team" Matos said.

As always, you are advised to send in ratings.  It's not required, however it is a necessity if you would like your driver or team to perform well.

Per usual, there will be stacks to add to the ratings.  In each category (Driver style, driver track type, and team), you must have one of each of the following stacks: -3, +3, +6, and +9.  The one exception is in the Driver Track category, which will be -3, +6, and +9, with the Superspeedway to be left alone.  

Driver Ratings:
(only the owner of the INDIVIDUAL DRIVERS send me these):

CLASS A Drivers (60-80) -
-Drivers who scored multiple victories in 2013.
-Drivers who finished in the top five in points in 2013.
-Drivers who have at least one victory in Dash Cup, ARLA, TM Lights, or TM Master Cup.

CLASS B Drivers (55-80) -
-Drivers who scored a single win in 2013.
-Drivers who failed to win but scored at least three top fives, six top tens, or both.
-Drivers who do not meet the above criteria but finished in the top ten in points.
-Drivers who have competed in at least one full season in Dash Cup, ARLA, TM Lights, or TM Master Cup without a win.

CLASS C Drivers (50-75) -
-Any driver who does not meet the above criteria.

CLASS F Drivers -
-Any comic relief drivers.  Ratings should be significantly lower than any of the above classes.  A comic relief driver can be placed in a competitive car if you wish to do that.

Team Ratings:
(only TEAM OWNERS send me these):

Reliability for all cars should be 15-75, with the stack applying to this category as well.  

CLASS A Teams (60-80) -
-Teams who scored multiple victories in 2013.  This applies to teams that had a win with multiple drivers as well.
-Teams who had a driver finish in the top five in points in 2013.
-Teams who have at least one victory in Dash Cup, ARLA, TM Lights, or TM Master Cup.

CLASS B Teams (55-80) -
-Teams who had a single victory in 2013.
-Teams who had a driver finish in the top ten in points in 2013.
-Teams who have competed in at least one full season in Dash Cup, ARLA, TM Lights, or TM Master Cup.

CLASS C Teams (50-75)-
-Any team who does not meet the above criteria.

CLASS F Teams -
-Any comic relief teams.  Ratings should be significantly lower than any of the above classes.  A comic relief team can have a non-comic relief driver if you wish to do that.

PIT CREW RATINGS ARE 40-60

The due date for cars will be Friday, March 28th at 11:59PM EST.

In addition, I will be running a 'pre-season testing' type of deal once again.  However this year, if your team participates, your cars will receive a slight ratings bonus.  In order to participate, your cars must be in by Friday, March 14th at 11:59PM EST.

You may still enter cars, though at this point they will likely be part-time.

If you need me to paint your car, PM me SOON.  If you ask me the day before, it more than likely won't happen.

Macena Motorsports buys out WestFall Motorsports, announces several changes.

Today, one of the various rumors regarding Macena Motorsports was confirmed as they announced that the team bought the remains of WestFall Motorsports. they also announced new sponsors, manufacturers and numbers to 2014.
The new sponsor is Epps Synthetic Oil, the brand will sponsor both cars in the series. The new manufacturer is Lenard, as they plan to use Lenard to driver development division. The other change was that the part-time car will be renumbered from #51 to #999 and the full-time car will be the #1.
Another thing that was announced is that the team wants to sign Fernando Matos before the start of the season as a full-time driver. Fernando already expressed his desire to keep racing on America.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Regarding the ratings, which numbers will be the ones for new teams and drivers, are they the Class C ones?

I'm wondering this, too. Also, does ARLA refer only to the Elite Series, or any of ARLA's series?

Thanks for the templates, but would it be possible if it's hosted on another file sharing website? It's requiring me to download a 4share desktop downloader which I don't want.

My mistake; I originally had a separate class for rookie drivers and teams, but abandoned it. Yes, it is class C. Also, it only refers to the Elite Series.

TDR Recruits Complete Unknown for #36 Part-Time Entry

Tom Delgado Racing has appointed 21-year old unknown Pete Blankenship as the driver of the team's #36 part-time entry for the 2014 season. Blankenship brings along his family's car dealership, which is based out of New Jersey. Officials close to the team confirmed the deal got done because sponsorship money was being brought.

CLASS B Drivers (55-80) -
-Drivers who failed to win but scored at least three top fives, six top tens, or both.

^Remember if your driver has a chance to fall into this category, you need to take the stats from after round four and after Rockingham,, because I had to manually add in points from the first four races after switching computers. Links to those stats are here:

Farr sells NRC team

Despite finishing third in the season points, John Farr's Farr-West Racing will not return to NRC. Farr said he is focusing most of his efforts this year on a car design he drafted called the "Razorback" which should be in limited production in 2014. The lucky recipient of Farr's sale is Dan Waggoner of Bardstown, Kentucky a prominent short track team owner and promoter in the Louisville Area. The team will run under Waggoner's MidSouth Motor banner and will carry sponsorship from Current Trends Battery Centers and Slyce Sawblades. Car will likely be a Matthews Aspiria, driver is reportedly Michigan Late Model hotshoe Kerri Ennisburg and will carry #6

EDIT: Hope I am not to late!

One other thing I would ask is that everyone could either inform me of the number font they used or send me a .psd or a .png of just the number. It's not necessary, however will be placed on the driver banners if provided.

The numbers on the Pete Blankenship #36 are the Tommy Baldwin Racing numbers. Now that I'm back on my main computer, I can hook you up with the font if necessary.
